all blood oratory, our memory of the earth talks, prints our life under the sun & we ate morning things, grape leaves, humor aspirin, light articulation; it made me remember the palms of my hands in the place we took the wishbone, something joyous in the night light of thought breathing that day a truth trembling in the vastness of our own small beings.
(Emma Lou Collier)
Emma Lou is a very peculiar and surreal friend of mine (ha!) . She goes by many names, but today I’ll stick with Emma Lou Collier ( oh very formal, yes yes). We have been collaborating with Emma in various ways, since the summer of 2009 when I had the pleasure to meet her, for the first time.
I admire her writings (not only) and it is awesome that we have collaborated here in WordPress too… This is one of the writings I chose for the illustration, however there are plenty of her surreal writings, here : http://another-portmanteau.tumblr.com/
Thank you and much love!
