She palmed nearly every gordita on the tray helping me figure out which kind I wanted. She could’ve dropped it on the ground and wiped it off with her worn out apron too. I still woulda eaten it. Happily. All three of’m. And the two cups of fresh watermelon juice. Been parked on an upside down bucket at my favorite food carts in Mexico City for the last eight days. Up to Texas tomorrow to be with my family for a week of giving thanks. When we go around the circle and say what we’re thankful for, I can hardly wait to not shut up. Napkins, for one.

This piece felt too severe most days so I only read it out all that often, but I just decidedly decided how much I like it. Self-Portrait (2011). Been digging through the old stuff as I set to finish the new book.


Farmly Film Fest

November 12, 2018

I am absolutely not humbled to tell you that @jamiedewolf and I made a short film called Farmly.
Everyone in it are members of my family. They nailed it.
We’re so far accepted to two of the 15 film fests we submitted to last week.
We got a response from the founder of Movies & Meaning:
Farmly is a bit of a wonder, I have to say. I’ve seen thousands of films, and yours stands out as one in which the rawness of the words is matched by the truth of the images; the final shot in particular makes it a cut above. It also accomplished a rare thing – being both a confrontation and an invitation.

I can’t show it til next year and feel like a kid in a toy store not allowed to spend his money.
@davidodowda did the music and @inkymole did the titling and I’m doing thanks to the max.
Just wanted to be prematurely announcy.
