On scary spaces and stowing things away
On parades, and trinkets, and oysters
On the stuff you leave behind
On murderous dromedaries, shadow selves, and middle-aged love
On anxiety, panic, and holding on
On the pleasures of chit-chat and talking to strangers
On the weird intimacy of nicknames
On found objects, self-improvement, and utopia
On masking, masklessness, being masked, MASKS
On scholarly Acknowledgements and over-staying your welcome
On letter writing and mourning
On nostalgia, periodizing the 1990s, and death by internet
