on the way to something else.

One summer. 12 round trip Southwest flights. Put your child's oxygen mask on before yours! 24 mini bottles of terrible Sutter Home wine (to and from destination). 24 mini bags of peanuts. Turbulence. Excitement. Recycled air. Seats and tray tables in their upright positions.

new project: plum gorgeous

Hello again. Working on a new project with Nani Steele, and she creates the most simple, incredible tastes and flavors with her dishes. And she works like a true artist. It's like a Jackson Pollock painting in your mouth. Or like that scene in 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory', where Violet eats the three-course meal piece of gum and is shouting names of the dishes she tastes. Like this: cinnamon! cardamom! fennel! honey! spicy! sweet! delicious!
All these polaroids with a poem by William Carlos Williams:

I have eaten
the plums
that were in
the icebox

and which
you were probably
for breakfast

Forgive me
they were delicious
so sweet
and so cold
