Where does this work start?
(Excerpt from an interview with Hill Street Country Club's Dinah Poellnitz in October, 2015)
"A few threads really. Usually I’ll begin to notice a few patterns here and there, ways I’m thinking and things I’m seeing start to cross paths. This time it was The News. A lot of time it is The News, but this time it wasn’t so much the contents of the news as much as The News itself. I kept being swept away by the stories of the week. These huge Breaking News items that overwhelm everything, and then after a week of counterarguments and Facebook debates, just suddenly vanish. Where did they go? Where did all the thinking and feeling and outrage go? Was it resolved? What did it leave behind? Sandy Hook, Sandra Bland, the dentist who shot Cecil the Lion, Ahmed and his clock (to name very few recent ones). There’s one big one every week. They are all so important to the Now. And then… gone.
And maybe I’m at my midlife (I hope anyway), and while I realized at some point I will be dead one day, this new line of thinking has dawned on me that not everything will get resolved in my time. This doesn’t end like a movie. Not only my will all the “broken” parts of my own life never get resolved, but all these news stories and things that make up this Now. All these things that come and go, the things I thought I’d circle back to one day, the thoughts and their forms… I just imagined them all making some sort of black hole in space and time. And that’s where it starts."
