2015 MC #2 ReMEDIAting  - 
 
I share this a bit reluctantly for reasons I don't fully get. Maybe the hesitation is wrapped up in the very personal identity making & unmaking project of tattoos (for me) or maybe it's the commonplace idea of an imagined kinship with other people who have tats that I don't necessarily feel. Maybe it just feels weird to call attention to a body, no to MY body, in learning spaces. Anyhow, it seems we're all dealing with some kind of dissonance or discomforts as we #untro and #remediate meaning across modes and spaces, so here's an embodied remediation of the Grimm's Fairy Tale "The Dog and the Sparrow." The story resonates with me in ways that are powerful and in ways that I am and I am not proud of. This sparrow & hatchet were beautifully rendered in the style of chiaroscuro woodcuts by artist Paul Lieberman of Fair Trade Tattoo in Garner.

Wow.  That story is powerful.  I love the tattoo.  As someone with 9 tattoos, I can attest to the fact that for many people, the meaning is far deeper than they might want to share in a casual conversation. [I know this is not true for all.]  For some of us, it is a way to retake ownership and power of our own bodies.

+Monica Multer I'd be curious to know how people's dreams differ from their waking perception.  My dreams do all sorts of strange things with time.

#glitchy  Wednesday.  Thinking about what it means to be better at dialogue than monologue and what it means to be a non-expert, unorganized, messy, and unmade (like my bed) in public.  Hmmm...I think I just hit on a #Donow  object. +Rex Rose +Lacy Manship +Lil Brannon +Tony Iannone +Christopher Rogers

my brother and his family showed up unexpectedly one Saturday morning and the state of my household probably made them think I should be committed to an institution (not that there's anything wrong with that LOL).

Picking up Mindy Early's "I am Not" untro that she shared on Fb this morning to say, "I'm not the white woman you've constructed me to be. I am not in need of your protection. I am not your excuse for violence and genocide. I am not a cog in the wheel of racism, sexism, homophobia, classism, nationalism, ageism, and ableism that runs ramshot over others bodies." #unmaking #whiteprivilege #raceisgendered #genderisraced
We can’t talk about Charleston without talking about white women. Because Dylann Roof did.

Follow-up question: In calling out racism, but trying to do so in a way that doesn't alienate people to the point of ending the possibility for meaningful dialogue or change, what language might you use? I'm really struggling with this. (I find it easier to deal with other "-isms" like homophobia or ageism. Why is that?)

Who wants to play my #madlib  introduction meme game?  I'm playing off the traditional ways we introduce ourselves as a way of making the familiar seem strange.  Post your glitchy/unmade/random intro in the comments below!

There is something almost divine in the messiness of an unmade bed.

Hello, my name is Summer Squash and I'm such a handful this time of year! No one really knows what to make of me, but I work well with tomatoes, basil, lemon, Parmesan and a little salt and pepper. 'Tis the season to be fresh!
