Observations is my blog about things around me: people on the street, art and design, politics, and music. I write it as a series of daily lists.
I’ve written Observations every day since July 17, 2018, and now, to mark its first anniversary, I’m printing a chapbook: Observations: Year One.
The book distills the blog. It takes 410 nuggets of life from the past year and connects them in new ways. And it pairs each week with a mesmerizing risograph illustration by Lauren Gallagher.
I learned a lot from the past year of writing Observations. I learned that little things can feel important when you give them space of their own. And that noticing begets more noticing. When you pay attention to a few things, other things reveal themselves to you.
I love writing the blog and I hope you enjoy the book!
