I am making beef stock and started way late. Toasting aromatics at two in the morning ain’t something I’m looking forward to.
It dawned on me recently that I don’t have any friends who are interested in art/writing/poetry. One of my girlfriends said, “I don’t get poems!” (She doesn’t know that I write them and have a blog).
Speaking of, I hated analyzing poems in high school and university. Sometimes how people teach things can turn you off. I don’t think I wrote a single poem in any of those classes.
I want my work to connect on a personal level. I feel like analysis interferes with that connection – You can love or hate something without knowing exactly why, and that’s ok.
If I were a teacher, I’d rather my students read all genres of authors and write their own poems, instead of analyzing dead people’s shit. Then if they find a love for the topic, we can get into the technical details and analysis of different pieces. But then I’d get fired cause what would I quiz/test them on?
Anyway – I’m gonna see if there are any meetups for art/writing/poetry people or poetry reading stuff. Is having a private collection of art a status thing or an investment thing, or both?
That’s all I got for the remix! BTW – I am fat, but I have never sex assaulted anyone! I just want to clarify, in case you think all fat people are rapists.
