I've collected and written about such a lot of stuff over the years, it's hard to choose just one object to talk about on Thursday. That's when I'll be participating in this Show & Tale event in Brooklyn, which should be interesting. We'll each take a few minutes to show and describe an object that has affected our creative practice, and I plan to bring something that I wrote about in my book White Elephants, which is basically entirely about the weird old things I find and fall in love with at yard sales and then buy and bring home and hoard. I'll have some copies of the book for sale as well. If you'll be in the area, come on out!
