Going home to New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina.
Steps I take to get out of my head and experience the world.
Even if you move around a lot, you can feel perfectly settled.
I didn’t feel like I belonged in either of my homelands.
I will love you forever.
Songs and drawings about being on the other side of big changes.
“I’m thinking in country.”
Moving homes; bodies; forward in time.
I’m getting older, too.
Sometimes the world is too much.
