november

paper letters on the coffee table this year.

grandma’s house turned five-oh. mom and her twin sixty. oprah inspired a choreographed flash mob in chicago. health care reform passed narrowly through the house. floods caused by hurricane ida in turn caused landslides in el salvador. fox news slammed cnn. which in turn slammed fox news. which in turn was slammed by a muppet. lady gaga put out a new song, which people talked about on twitter. there was an influx of vampires on television. shakira got sexually liberated, inside of a cage. jim jarmusch still had great hair.  my sister got kissed on her hand, unexpectedly. google honored the muppets. october turned pinker than any other year. multimedia books went mad with color. autumn happened. so did rain. i started writing cartoons. my guest room filled with water. i met denver james, and then left him. i fell in love with the sound of brett dennen. someone made me smile.

how do we judge significance?
