Shu Pei in Glass, fall 2012.

feeling very disconnected. not able to access the creativity I know I have but somehow eludes me. sitting uselessly in the corner of meetings trying to summon up something constructive to say and finding only bullshit. feeling trapped, helpless. just need to plow through all this work but where do i find the motivation to keep reading, keep writing, anything, if not in fear?

my mother bought me a massage today so maybe my back will hurt less after friday.

The Secret History - Donna Tartt

“Does such a thing as ‘the fatal flaw,’ that showy dark crack running down the middle of a life, exist outside literature? I used to think it didn’t. Now I think it does. And I think that mine is this: a morbid longing for the picturesque at all costs.”
