Corey - 7/31 - McSweeney's Postcards and BoxOne of the best purchases I've ever made. I've used probably 50 of the 100 postcards, and there are still so many good ones! I bought this set at the Chicago Art Institute in 2008 or 2009.

Corey - 7/30 - Wild at Heart, by John Eldredge, on a Broken H&M Sweater
Corey - 7/30 - Wild at Heart, by John Eldredge, on a Broken H&M SweaterThat beautiful sweater is a gift from my sister; unfortunately, the zipper is totally broken. I love it though, so I've held on it it. As for Wild at Heart - I know it is initially perceived as a book for football-playing manly men, but this book has indeed touched me. Pull away the Braveheart quotes and wartime metaphors, and you will find a book with nuance and thought and sensitivity. It encouraged me to ask questions about my identity and desires. "Every man carries a wound. I have never met a man without one."

Corey - 7/29 - The Alchemist on a Red T-Shirt
Corey - 7/29 - The Alchemist on a Red T-ShirtThis book is my Uncle Paul's used copy, which he gave to me. It is set on my red shirt. The Alchemist is a mysterious and mystical book, with transcendent wisdom dripping from each page. "From then on, the boy understood his heart. He asked it, please, never to stop speaking to him. He asked that, when he wandered from his dreams, his heart press him and sound the alarm. The boy swore that, every time he heard the alarm, he would heed its message."

Corey - 7/28 - A Swiftly Tilting Planet, by Madeleine L'Engle, on a Black and White Plaid Shirt
Corey - 7/28 - A Swiftly Tilting Planet, by Madeleine L'Engle, on a Black and White Plaid ShirtI bought that plaid shirt a few summers ago at a bro-ish shop in Mammoth, CA. The book was once in my mother's 6th grade classroom book collection, and is now falling apart.  Here is a powerful poem that is found in and around the narrative of Charles Wallace and his time-travelling Unicorn: "At Tara in this fateful hour, I place all Heaven with its power, un the sun with it's brightness, and the snow with its whiteness, and the fire with all the strength it hath, and the lightning with its rapid wrath, and the wind with its swiftness along its path, and sea with its deepness, and the rocks with their steepness, and the Earth with it's starkness, all these I place by God's almighty help and grace between myself and the powers of darkness."

Corey - 7/27 - A Wind in the Door, by Madeleine L'Engle, on a Basic Black Button-Up Shirt
Corey - 7/27 - A Wind in the Door, by Madeleine L'Engle, on a Basic Black Button-Up ShirtI've just been flipping through this book, looking for some quotes that stand out. I haven't read the book in years, and it's physically falling apart; yet there are a dozen quotes I've already found that are moving me to misty eyes and a full heart. "I Name you, Echthroi. I Name you Meg. I Name you Calvin. I Name you Mr. Jenkins. I Name you Proginoskes. I fill you with Naming. Be! Be, butterfly and behemoth, be galaxy and grasshopper, star a sparrow, you matter, you are, be!"

Corey - 7/25 - The Awakening, by Kate Chopin, and Plaid Flannel
Corey - 7/25 - The Awakening, by Kate Chopin, and Plaid FlannelThe flannel, a gift from my parents. I read The Awakening in high school, and I remember the vocal anger of my classmates when Edna Pontellier walked into the Gulf of Mexico to die. That image has haunted me for my entire life; I've created photographic images inspired by that moment, and I swear, every time I walk into the ocean I think of Edna. What could have brought a woman to such despair and hopelessness? Could patriarchy do such a thing?  "She went on and on. She remembered the night she swam far out, and recalled the terror that seized her at the fear of being unable to regain the shore. She did not look back now, but went on and on..."

Corey - 7/24 - The Great Gatsby, by F. Scott Fitzgerald, on Old Navy Multicolor Sweater
Corey - 7/24 - The Great Gatsby, by F. Scott Fitzgerald, on Old Navy Multicolor SweaterA perfect book, read when I was a sophomore in Mr. Biggs' sophomore Honors English class. Multicolor striped sweater was purchased at Old Navy. "And as I sat there, brooding on the old unknown world, I thought of Gatsby's wonder when he first picked out the green light at the end of Daisy's dock. He had come a long way to this blue lawn and his dream must have seemed so close that he could hardly fail to grasp it. He did not know that it was already behind him, somewhere back in that vast obscurity beyond the city, where the dark fields of the republic rolled on under the night."

Corey - 7/23 - The Bluest Eye, by Toni Morrison, one Striped Shirt
Corey - 7/23 - The Bluest Eye, by Toni Morrison, one Striped ShirtA sweet and sad novel about race, gender, and class. "My daddy's face is a study. Winter moves into it and presides there. His eyes become and cliff of snow threatening to avalanche; his eyebrows bend like black limbs of leafless trees." I bought the shirt from Urban Outfitters on the sale rack.

Corey - 7/22 - Peter Pan, by J.M. Barrie, on Striped SweaterA gift to my Mother, when she was pregnant with me, from some couple, "Denise" and "Chris". On the inside cover is a note - "Kathy - Every good mother should know the story of Peter Pan. Hope you enjoy this story as you are waiting for your baby. Love, Denise & Chris." This book has been in my room since I was very young. Sweater is from Old Navy.

Corey - 7/15 - The Year of Magical Thinking, by Joan Didion, with notes and receipt
Corey - 7/15 - The Year of Magical Thinking, by Joan Didion, with notes and receiptThis is a tragic book, but I love it so much. I bought it used; inside was a Borders receipt, and a small paper with notes scribbled out. Inside, there is a note on the first page: "Finished 4-24-07". The first line of the first chapter, a mournful bit of prose: "Life changes fast. Life changes in the instant. You sit down to dinner and life as you know it ends. The question of self-pity."

Book on the right is marked up with notes and highlights. And, by the way, "there is such thing as a tesseract".

"You can believe something with so much conviction that you'd die for that belief, and yet in the exact same moment you can also say, 'I could be wrong... ' This is because conviction and humility, like faith and doubt, are not opposites; they're dance partners."
