Look at me / Don’t look at me

October 18th, 2017 by Bekah Brunstetter

Being that I almost have a grown up person house of my own, it is finally time for me to stop storing things at my parent’s house like a college freshman.  My Mom most recently shipped me my old  jewelry box full of cross necklaces and broken promise rings and this bracelet that I made in high school or perhaps middle school, which I think sums up my entire existence:

I think I thought it was ironic, to have someone Look at my Bracelet and see the word Look? (This bracelet of course brought to you by the budding playwright who, around the same time, wrote a play called Happen in which nothing Happens.) Or maybe, if we go deeper, I just wanted to be looked at, then horrified at the idea that I was being looked at, but then devastated if no one was looking.  Is this the quintessential teenage person experience, or is this perhaps just THE BEING A PERSON EXPERIENCE?

Empty / Full

October 16th, 2017 by Bekah Brunstetter

Nearly one entire year ago, I bought this jar of Sorghum molasses from a roadside store in the NC mountains. We’d been married for two days and ten minutes. NOW NEARLY 365 DAYS LATER OMG TIME, It is finally cashed, as they say in France. Avoiding work and stress, I’ve turned the jar into countless cookies / memories / breads / apologies / gifts / thanks yous / carbs, just in general. The jar now appears to be empty, but it actually holds a whole year lived, 100 things not written. THANKS FOR THE MEMORIES, MOLASSES, AND OF COURSE ALSO THE PROCRASTINATION!

Lazitude

October 10th, 2017 by Bekah Brunstetter

I do not have the time or brain space this lunch break for thought, original or otherwise, definitely not just because of the salad dressing I just spilled on my pants, and so please accept this picture of Morrison and I in our evidently eternal blue phase at Katharine’s wedding as something insightful, or new. Please let it stand in for astute comments on all things wildfire and Harvey Weinstein:

SUCH CALM. SUCH PEACE. SUCH COORDINATION. OKAY, BACK TO MESS

this is Normal

My most brilliant mother in law Cam procured these brilliant action figures for her grandkids to play with:

Now, when my nephews see people with disabilities out in the world, it won’t even be a thing. They will have no need to gawk or stare. They will just pick the person up and start chewing on their heads, JUST AS THEY WOULD AN ABLE BODIED PERSON.

yet another spectacular Kedding!

October 8th, 2017 by Bekah Brunstetter

WHAT IS A KEDDING, YOU ASK? THANKFULLY YOU ARE ON THE INTERNET, WHICH HAS ALL OF THE INFORMATION, SUCH AS, DEFINITIONS! Kedding: noun; when one of the Keddies (Morrison’s family / Mom’s side of family) gets hitched. IT’S A COMBINATION OF WEDDING AND KEDDIE / KEEP UP / THIS IS AN EVER CHANGING WORLD. This weekend’s Kedding was for dear and beautiful and loyal Kate, Morrison’s oldest sister:

And as Per Kedding standard, we consumed 1400 lbs of carbs, danced to an acceptable hour as if no one and everyone were watching, and  I felt infinitely grateful to be a part this ever expanding family. I kedd you not, I would do one of these a week and it would NEVER GET OLD.
