february 2019


Recently someone was asking me "but what's the point" of Moon Lists. And sometimes it's just that I worry I will forget everything that's happened (or never notice at all) if I am not forcing myself to take notes.

Right now: The movie “Cast Away” is playing on the TV at the bar, HELP is written in the sand. The couple next to me orders a dozen oysters but only he eats. A woman drops her bag and the chain strap makes a clinking noise on the ground, like dropping a handful of coins. She looks around, embarrassed; we’re raised to be apologetic for dropping our bag on the floor!

Meanwhile, a scan of words in my notebook: Wrist pain, oat milk, launch day, same look but different shoes, celery juice?, sincere framing, CoQ10, seasonal gesture, why do we like this, iconic, pinecone taxonomy, emblematic of trend, high/low, heat/cold, toning mist, topical brainstorm, expand and connect, what is value.

Meanwhile, learning:
- the outcome is sometimes bigger than my intention
- speak up
- time together is the most important thing


...Still I want to live in/with all the layers.
