I'm back, sort of

May 17, 2010

As you can see from the header, below the lovely picture of me, I’ve created new pages related to info that was previously featured on my Facebook account.

So, in a sense, I’m back. Creating those extra pages reminded me that I’d missed you, your comments, and your well-wishes in times of strife.

I still don’t know what to do here though, or how I want to use it.

I could start with loosely highlighting what I have been up to, or new developments that occurred in my life over the past year.

  • I spent muchos time in Domestic Violence court during the first half of 2009.
  • I took a hiatus from sex work organizing and activism.
  • I’m now writing the “News Shorts” column for $pread magazine.
  • Shayne, of The Future Kings of Nowhere, was diagnosed with cancer last fall. You can follow his story at thismachinekillscancer.tumblr.com
  • I spend a lot of time on tumblr under the guise of an alternate identity. I don’t think you’re really missing all that much by being kept in the dark as far as that is concerned.
  • I’m so fucking domestic in my cute little house. It makes the old me sick. (I am forced to recall the high school classmate who told me that I would end up with a little white picket existence, in spite of all my rage and intentional nonconformity. In a sense, he was onto something, but in another sense, I’m still the same person as before and delight in breaking from the status quo.)
  • I garden, and I love it. Making pretty things come to life is quite satisfying. I can’t wait for the Butterfly bushes to start blooming. Then I can lay in my front yard surrounded by butterflies and bees. (When there are plenty of flowers and nectar to be had, bees really don’t give a shit about humans.)

There are other things but that’s the broad strokes. (I wrote other stuff, and deleted it. You don’t really need to know those things, in spite of how much I may want to share them.)

You can still email me at jessica.land@gmail.com. I’m always happy to hear from you, whether I’m posting here or not.

And I still love you for reading.
