random glimpses of Ms. Henriksen's brain
I’m looking at my notes now and thinking of Joan Didion’s essay “On Keeping a Notebook.”
There’s a lot of fragmentary descriptions of scenes, most of which do not describe sounds: “excessive fringe,” “seagull flying above Joanna Newsom,” “colored studs up his earlobe,” “girls kissing, both with short haircuts in fluorescent orange shirts with black and white roses,” “fedoras,” “lots of pot smoke,” “I’m not a fucking hipster,” “moon in phases,” “clouds a dust pink,” and “shaking bass.”
