conscious recycling

December 3rd, 2017 by Bekah Brunstetter

Fun tip for brides: wondering what to do with all of those pesky tiny pictures of your cat that you and your groom thoughtfully selected and print and cut out and put into tiny picture frames and then scattered them on the tables at your wedding so that your friends and family would have to look at your cat while eating? HANG THEM IN YOUR GUEST BATHROOM SO THAT WHEN YOUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY COME OVER THEY CAN WORRY ABOUT YOUR RELATIONSHIP AND ALSO YOUR MENTAL HEALTH BUT ALSO BE JEALOUS A LITTLE BIT

Home is where your socks and cat and vodka are

November 16th, 2017 by Bekah Brunstetter

So maybe during this week of transitioning into a new home, I also have an episode in production which means 14 hour days, but at the end of each one, I get to go Home to the essentials.

Not pictured: Husband; ALSO ESSENTIAL.

the Fullest of Circles

September 30th, 2017 by Bekah Brunstetter

It is maybe a TINY BIT NERVE WRACKING to return to your college town / college theater where you wrote your first play to watch a play that you wrote about the icky locked corners of your morality and consciousness, and by tiny bit, I mean  Chapel Hill now has four less bottles of white wine, and I actually almost leapt out of the car on the drive there.  BUT, swell news: not only is the Playmaker’s production of The Cake beautiful and a thing to be proud of,  I got to see it sandwiched between my sisters:

I met these two in the  drama department some 15 years ago, Blaine with her backless tank tops and Camino Real monologues, Carrie with her glorious singing voice and princess hair. Playwrights: a play SHOULD feel personal, to the point of burning self consciousness, but to protect yourself from those feelings while you watch your work, I highly recommend zipping yourself up in a sleeping bag of old friends, and watching from that safe place.

THOUGHTS CONTROL THINGS

September 19th, 2017 by Bekah Brunstetter

Last night at work:

Me: I really, really feel like there’s going to be an earthquake really soon.

Last night at 11:20 PM: 3.4 EARTHQUAKE THAT MORRISON SAID WAS JUST HIMSELF SCRATCHING HIS HEAD BUT TURNS OUT IT WAS DEFINITELY AN EARTHQUAKE.

Me today at work: I really, really feel like North Korea is going to give back their nukes and that there will suddenly be no such things as hurricanes.

Today at 4:43 PM:

fragility

September 7th, 2017 by Bekah Brunstetter

Do you ever feel like it’s sort of pointless to spend time building and cultivating and perfecting a physical home, because the Weather is a sometimes benevolent but oftentimes vengeful, irrational beast that we have no control over and so maybe it’s better to spend time and money and resources on constructing strength of CHARACTER to endure whatever disasters the Weather create,  instead of walls and ceilings and stairs? NO?  JUST ME? OKAY I’LL JUST SIT HERE ALONE AND FEEL THAT

I used to be fun

August 23rd, 2017 by Bekah Brunstetter

Three years ago this week, I was gallivanting around Iceland,  hiking various glaciers and swimming in various lagoons. This week, in checking Lowes.com everyday to see if their Labor Day sale as started so we can buy a fridge and a dishwasher. I’m not mad the change, tho. Given that last night we legit spent happy hour deep in the world of kitchen faucets, I think that THIS IS NOW MY IDEA OF FUN.

WHAT A FEEEEEEEEELING

July 28th, 2017 by Bekah Brunstetter

This morning, we went to OUR HOUSE for the first time as PEOPLE WHO OWN A HOUSE which is to say, HOME OWNERS. We frolicked around and laughed like idiots and blasted the central air in our faces and planned where to put things. It was the best feeling.  It could be described as Joy, but more specifically: it’s the feeling of all the years you have lived and all of the years you have yet to live forming walls around you. The past — the ceiling, the present — the floor, and the future suspended inbetween. AND YOU HAVE  A KEY TO IT.

sound picture

June 19th, 2017 by Bekah Brunstetter

Sometimes when I’m in a life moment,  listening to a certain song, and the life moment and the song are beautifully synced, like just now as I sit in my office  considering putting an offer on a house with my husband that I always hoped I’d meet some 16 years ago while driving around lost and alone listening to Dixie Chicks and then Dixie Chicks comes on my shuffle — I think to myself, I wish I could take a picture of sound. THEN I REMEMBER THAT ONE CAN IN FACT TAKE A PICTURE OF SOUND, IT’S IN FACT CALLED A RECORDING. Then I feel really deep and profound, then a little dumb, then a little lucky, then I close my eyes for just a second, hit record.
