i hate that it asks me to make a catchy title

I have a new ish lamp at my bedside; the components make me feel rich. Rich like when I was a little kid staying at fancy hotels with USB ports on their sides like tattoos. This lamp has a lil port in the back, a two prong plug that takes things that don't need to be grounded and a plug that needs to be grounded. Little me would feel rich right now. Little me does feel rich right now. The right now me feels incredibly grateful. These *waves hands with a lot of energy in a Jéhan way* times that we're in are really fucking confusing, strange to feel and a wild ride to sit inside. Russia has literally invaded Ukraine. The United States Government is responding to all the things in a way that makes me want to eat my face and I'm making theatre. and tv. and pedagogy. Wars are happening and I'm making theatre. That makes also makes me feel rich.

AFTERWORDS - Associate Directing

Music and Lyrics by Zoe Sarnak Book by Emily Kaczmarek Directed by Adrienne Campbell-Holt WORLD PREMIERE! A breathtaking story about the power of art to heal, Afterwords is a captivating new musical featuring a rhythmic and soulful score that fuses pop, rock, and modern indie-folk. Reeling from the sudden loss of their mother, sisters Kali and Simone are once again roommates in their childhood home. Burdened with mounting bills, they decide to rent out the attic, and into their lives walks Jo, a war reporter grieving her own deep loss. As the women get to know each other and struggle to reckon with the past, a complex mosaic of intersecting lives reveals itself. A formally inventive exploration of family, grief, healing, and redemption, Afterwords is the story of three women bound by notes scribbled down on paper, and the art we make from the love that makes us. A recent podcast production in our Essential 5th Digital Collection, this musical will be brought to stunning and vivid life on stage.

I know people are curious about my life. Social media and I have a tenuous relationship. I just don't like it. It's not just one thing. It's all the things. Right now, it's about who gets to control my image. I had a Patreon but immediately resented it. It's a great way to monetize your work but it doesn't work for what I do with earthseed. Every time I create a social media profile for whatever reason I also immediately resent that. I'd just rather not be perceived. But a West Indian's gotta make money so I've decided to spend more time here. I'll share what I'm up to. It might be photos or links, or sketches, or journal entries. It might be commentary, or prose, or theory or I don't know what it will be. I'm just gonna talk to you and pretend there's no one there
