adam bork gave me this amazing sign today. i think it was part of a box:

lately, today especially, i feel like someone cracked a cascarone on my head and all the confetti is streaming down my head. or maybe it’s more that feeling when someone does spider hands on the top of your head and you get the shivers down your back. just…wide open. and ready. like something about to bloom. i keep thinking about that quote from the brief wondrous life of oscar wao:

And that’s when it hit me with the force of a hurricane. The feeling. I stood straight up, the way my mother always wanted me to stand up. My abuela was sitting there, forlorn, trying to cobble together the right words and I could not move or breathe. I felt like I always did at the last seconds of a race, when I was sure I was going to explode. She was about to say something and I was waiting for whatever she was going to tell me. I was waiting to begin.
