Recommended Reading / 02.

Every Monday, words to start the week.

This week: Designer Timothy Goodman's handwritten Instagram series #memoriesofagirlineverknew is funny, heart-wrenching, and —judging from the reactions of many enthusiastic commenters — very true to twenty-or-thirty-something life. My favorites are 6A and B, above. See parts one through 11 on Instagram, here.

Three more links, just because:
-Meet Prof. Dumpster, who lives happily - and stylishly! - in 36 square-feet. (Thanks, Kathy.)
-Shelley Jackson's story Skin is being published in tattoo form on 2,095 volunteer participants — one word per person. Jackson calls it a mortal work of art and will "make every effort to attend the funerals of her words."
-From Andrew Wyeth, in celebration of the coming cold: "I prefer winter and fall, when you can feel the bone structure in the landscape...Something waits beneath it — the whole story doesn't show."

  1. Wow, love that series!!

  2. Wow! Shelley Jackson's innovation blows my mind! I wish I had known about Skin in 2003...I would have just been old enough to get a tattoo then.

  3. Yep, that feels like the junior high experience to me! (Except maybe not Aerosmith's "Crazy" - my memories are much more the Jets and Whitney Houston!)

  4. That dumpster living is amazing and I loved Timothy's thoughts - the first time does begin again (luckily!)

  5. Kathy, me too! :)

    Trish, I love that.

    Fee, yes, thankfully!

  6. Awww, such a sweet story about a first crush!
