First time, every time is a.*
Georgetown and Sodo
Seattle, WA
Spring Quarter, 2010


Sunday, 6.20.10
(Bothell, WA)

Habits are tasks, repeated.
Over and over, we
get groceries.  Browse, pick, purchase.
Bag, store, squeeze, peel,
slice, simmer, taste.
Bed sheets unfolding//folding//unfolding.
Make bed, unmake bed:
laying, sweating, sleeping, laying,
Alarm — alarm set, snooze.  Snooze……
……..      snooze.shit.

Habits are patterns we weave.
In to muscle-memory.
Interrupted regularly by the first times.
Instant and incident, instants and change

Again. and over again.

Every first time.


*These are images from my first self-processed collection of photographs.  I made each photo using a black and white film camera while taking an introductory photography class.  They are from a roll of film I developed and scanned at the Shoreline Community College photo lab.  This is the first and only roll of film I have developed, and sure to not be the last.
