The Dinner Diaries

The Dinner Diaries
that's all i can say
it makes me go back to when i kept a diary at work while pumping adolfo's milk
you can imagine the physical talent it took for me to get into a position comfortable enough to write the daily one page soliloquy in pencil to my son
i don't know when he will read these notebooks
after a while i'd collected about 6 filled 5"x7" notebooks of random thoughts peppered with i love yous to the little boy i was feeding from distance
i tried to talk about things that i'd done that day or thoughts i had about things i'd seen
sometimes it was hard to write a full page so on these occasions lots of love love love words to my boy
i kept a framed picture of him to look at as inspiration, all the literature about nursing, working mothers recommended this set up so that i could produce lotso milk for my baby
sometimes i knew why i was writing and did so with a purpose
mostly i recorded events, and not very well i'm sure
the notebooks have a place on our bookshelves in the living room
nobody will notice them, partly because the people who come see us are bombarded with the living chavezes and probably cannot think about what we might have housed on our shelves
and partly because there is much more to look at on those two shelves
but one day i know adolfo and paola will come across them
and when they do, i wonder what they will think, i wonder what it will mean to them...

stuff and nonsense, a series of personal confessions. Part 1

  • i rise up to the challenge, master it, then quickly get bored
  • in social settings, my modus operandi is dictated by my mood, therefore i don't suffer the awkward consequences of guilt
  • i become immobile without a plan
  • my parents brought me here, then i took my own liberties
  • i worry about what i'm doing to the minds of my children, then i forget about all of that when i'm with them
  • i spoil those that i love with spoiling tendencies
thank you
