The internet is often praised for speed, instant communication.
We use things people said online to crucify them. We talk of futures we fear or delight in, but it is all in the past.

Project A- Nov 6/8
Project B- No solid date, but is needed to market an event at end of Jan.
Project C- No solid date but needed before xmas.
Project A, zero responses from producer I am to interview. Finally on the 6th a musician gets back to me. Making due with backup plan to interview them. On the 7th I transcribe interview & write 1400 word story. Relieved to finish.
Today, main contact contacts editor. Editor says interview them. Anxiety is back. This feels like trauma

How is it that we are sending machines & eventually people to Mars, but we cannot do #SocialDistancing to save our fucking lives?

Every time today when I took a few deep breaths to center myself and be mindful instead of finding relaxation my brain kept finding the chorus of the title track from the Film Frown movie, WHITE FIRE!
Please cut this song out of my head with a chainsaw!

Writer, video editor, motion graphics occasionally pay me. Creating art and having conversations fuel me.
