The Barn

“When they pack up her house, a photograph will fall from the pages of a novel, carving arcs in the air as it drifts to the carpet. Pictured is an old falling-down barn. No one alive knows that this barn was built on the foundation of an even older falling-down barn, after it too fell down. No photographs, no paintings of that older structure exist, the thatched roof, the wattle and daub walls. No living soul heard the crack and the pop of the flames or remembers the charred east corner . . .”

Remember way back when we were hermits hoarding toilet paper and wiping off our groceries? Seems like someone else.

I loved having the opportunity to do this interview with María José! Her book, How to Order the Universe, is fantastic! https://lareviewofbooks.org/article/grief-is-never-finished-a-conversation-with-maria-jose-ferrada/?fbclid=IwAR2LOVFw-uhsSNztExxsKY4PgElFlt0rzb9akskDhJehCrkqPfSHuHbmsHM

Not only does @AmericanAir suck, their reps are super condescending. Changing my flight took 4 days and the price jumped up to $400. Zero. Stars. #AmericanAirlines #theworst #fail
