This is the zine that I completed as artist-in-residence at the Roberts Street Social Centre in Halifax, Nova Scotia. It’s a quarter-size perzine, mostly typewritten, with a few handwritten phrases and sparse cut-and-paste details. I’ve written about accepting loneliness as an inevitability and staying sober in a world that seems to want me drunk or dead. Excerpt: “The heaviness on my chest, the fluttering in my tummy… they are always going to be there. It is time to stop searching for the remedy and to finally accept them as a part of me. I want to embrace my sadness without letting it keep me in bed for days on end. And if my anxiety keeps me locked in my apartment, I’d like to invite someone else over.”
It is currently available for $1.00 + postage via Fight Boredom Distro, and will soon be in stock at Vampire Sushi (UK) and Stranger Danger (US). I accept Paypal and well-concealed cash (just click How To Order).
Read in a safe place, take care, and write me a letter. ♥
