Day 1: Introduce Yourself
I’m not very good at a. these challenges or b. introducing myself, but here is a little snippet of a good day.
Whenever I feel particularly anxious or antsy, I like to spend at least a part of my weekend reading or researching, pointedly not at home. It takes me out of myself for a few hours.
I read Neil Gaiman’s “Ocean at the End of the Lane” this summer, and It completely got me back into reading.
This is my interpretation of one of the “Hunger Birds,” the willfully aggressive, world devouring varmints. When something is out of hand, or out of place, they devour.
They are the Cleaners.
The image of them was so clear to me, that I couldn’t help but try to put it on paper.
I also read that Focus Features will be adapting this story into a film that will be produced by Tom hanks and directed by Joe Wright. I would very much love to be a part of that.
This is so beautiful, and so much like the Hunger Birds inside of my head.
In case anyone would like to read about Muslim feminism, Nine Parts of Desire is a nice and compelling introduction. Peppered with solid evidence and well-constructed arguments, it’s twenty years old but still valid. (Keep in mind that it tries to depict at least five countries in some 250 pages so it’s a jump off point rather than a resource in itself.)
