Monster #430 — Push Back

push back

I once shared a studio with a woman who had a big sign on the back of the studio door that said PUSH BACK. I thought at first it referred to the door itself, like maybe it was hard to open or close so you had to push on it harder than you’d think, but it had nothing to do with the door. Just life. And Other People. You know what I mean.

Monster #202 — Listen!


My neighbor is extremely concerned about tidiness. Her child is always spotless. His toys all look like they just came out of the box. Things are in their place. Always.

It sort of scares me to think about how much time and energy she spends cleaning things. And it’s kind of scary how little time I spend doing the same.

I’m all about sloth and chaos and accidentally leaving things out in the rain. And having chickens and a compost pile and going barefoot in the yard.

She must be as horrified by my lifestyle as I am by hers.
