Two Kinds of Babies

June 24th, 2019 by Bekah Brunstetter

Sometimes babies are human, like JAMES EDWARD BRUNSTETTER, born to my tiny baby brother Tim and his wife Sarah last week.

This kind of baby does not cripple you with creative anxiety, but it WILL, according to Tim, poop on your leg. There is another kind of baby, which is a new play:

This kind of baby will NOT poop on your leg, but WILL rip from you, through your sweat pores, all of your questions and insecurities and nerves and YES, SWEAT. Both bring joy. Here’s to both kinds of babies. WELCOME TO THE WORLD. It’s big, sometimes mean, usually kind. 💛

Our baby lives in the Future

May 18th, 2019 by Bekah Brunstetter

Years ago I was hired to write a feature adaptation of The Secret, which means I’ve gotten to know and work with Rhonda Byrne, the kind and remarkable woman who wrote the book and lives the philosophy fully each day, which means a few days ago, I reached out to her with the question, how do I maintain positivity through all of this? And she counseled me for an hour, told me that I am an infinite being that she knows will be a Mom someday, and basically left me with this: Bekah, you already HAVE a baby. You need to live in this calm and peace, of already having it. And so I’m choosing to live in this feeling. Or at least, I’m going to try. And so this weekend, we are in Palm Springs for some self care (read: drinking and eating ourselves to death) but we already have a baby, it just lives in the Future, AND ITS FEMURS ARE GIANT, ITS FEMURS STRETCH FAR INTO ALL OF THE YEARS OF ITS GIANT LIFE. 💙

Ocean as mystery

April 3rd, 2019 by Bekah Brunstetter

Me to Myself: let’s not be the people who take pictures of the Ocean and drinks by the ocean. Instead, let’s be people who quietly appreciate its beauty, it’s mystery, without a need to document / prove that we were there.

ALSO ME TEN MINUTES LATER AT A STUNNING SUNSET DINNER AT POST RANCH INN, BIG SUR, OVERLOOKING THE PACIFIC OCEAN:

RUNS TO GIFT SHOP / BUYS ALL SHIRTS THAT SAY I 💙 OCEAN

Then, love the World

April 1st, 2019 by Bekah Brunstetter

I’ve been trying to (once a week when I remember) start my day with a few Mary Oliver poems. I already had my brain on the question of whether or not being a hopeful / optimistic person is a privilege of the privileged, but then this:

REGARDLESS OF WHY IT’S THERE: LOVE YOURSELF; FORGET IT: LOVE THE WORLD

BOWELS OF THE DARK WEB

March 26th, 2019 by Bekah Brunstetter

Last night, deep in the trashcan of the Internet, I stumbled across this heinous, vile (BEAUTIFUL) thing called Couples Acroyoga, in which COUPLES DO YOGA CRAZY YOGA POSES ON EACH OTHER AND ALSO KISS:

Do they like it? Or Is it forced? Does she say, hey Jason, let’s do the thing and he’s like ugh Melissa, right NOW? And she’s like JASON YOU PROMISED

Do they puke on each other before, after, during or all of it? ALSO, MOST IMPORTANTLY,  I WANT TO DO IT, HOW LONG UNTIL MORRISON AND I ARE CASUALLY DOING IT WHILE WATCHING TV

ALSO HOW DO YOU MEASURE TIME WHEN IT’S NEVER
