Conversation topics include: breaking in to 5-star hotels, privilege & politics, the ridiculousness of the world & the ridiculousness of being, the calming presence of dogs, pushing back against ever-changing rules, and being overcome by the loss of the great loves of our lives.
I want to create a space where I’m not dragging someone by the hair through what I got . . . hopefully when you’re reading the thing, the thing that’s true, the feeling, you’re like Oh shit! . . . amidst the chaos, the absurdity, the larger context . . . Shit that thing just hit me like a gutshot.
