    *Jeanette Winterson is one of my early teachers on love. Love has always been important to her. It’s why the words, “what you risk reveals what you value” appear over and over in different books. I read all her books one after the other in my late teens and early 20s. And she is in a lot of my writing, quoted and in spirit.

  5. For some reason this opening landscape shot from Murphy’s Romance (1985) is so 80s to me. You see it in so many early Spielberg films. That shot, that color, that America, that tells you everything is possible. That horizon is hope. And story. Etel Adnan: “We project our longings on the horizon’s precarious line.”


  6. Marisa Tomei’s hair in Unhook The Stars is so great. And so 90s. So actually messy. In the 90s, women had androgynous personality hair, now you we have hair that is so manicured, so hyperfeminized, it hides personality and conveys all sexual politic.


  7. "… It felt like the bright green pain on the bad side. I couldn’t always see these colors and I didn’t know they were the colors of energy. I thought the purple was transferable. All the colors were. I was so frustrated and wanted so much to see all the time, I thought it would be simpler to see and to know rather than ask questions and try to figure out the answer. Sometimes I questioned the energy and I would pick up something it gave a negative on and would get a shock of energy. The clear ones, I discovered, were blue. I didn’t know that blue, which was the equivalent of the green in intensity but was the flame that did not burn, was the color of high energy. When the purple and red and green were gone the blue was the purified energy. I thought white was the highest manifestation and yellow or gold the physical manifestation of the clear light; and the pale pastels came next; the pink and green and the pale clear blue. So the energy would point out what I could use and I would use it."
