30 Things I Love Right Now: 01.25.19

(1) Trying. (2) Finding misplaced things. (3) @emmabo. (4) Nancy Pelosi. (5) Michael Bennet. (6) @alexanderchee. (7) The rising new generation of citizen “first-responders.” Their engagement, their attention to the political process, and their agitation. Which, in turn, has encouraged me to find ways to… (8) Respond. (9) Engage. (10) Attend. (11) Feel, process, express my agitation with current events. (12) <1000 mi. away from 250k. (13) Staying busy. (14) S[–]’s two little rice-grain teeth. (15) J[–]’s nicknames for #14 above: Boo-Boo, Schmoopy… (16) J[–]’s resolve, resilience, her consistent drive to do/be/know better/best. (17) Goodreads. (18) A second cup of coffee. (19) Remembering my password. (See #2 above.) (20) The term “crocodile tears.” (See/search #5 above.) (21) Reading indictments. (22) The word “tranches,” as in “33 tranches of documents.” (23) Form, the Kibuki dance of it. Indictments, sonnets, threads on Twitter. (24) The rubber bands holding my phone in its case. (Form!) (25) Sound. (26) Fury. (See #7 above. Also #5.) (27) This janky laptop. (28) Rhythm, routine, repetition — vital components of #23 above. (29) Actually the term “documents,” too. I’ve always loved that word. (30) This act — this form: this rhythm, this routine, this repetition — of documenting, 30 things at a time, my one wild and precious (see #14 – #16 above) life.
