Why subscribe?

There are a lot of things in life, like the way the sun sets after a long day and the way your mother kissed you on the forehead during the night (though she told you in the morning that perhaps an angel had visited, and that no, she hadn’t come into your bedroom).

There are many beautiful things in the world and even in the ugliest, most disgusting things joy can be found—and that is why you might be here, now.

Things That You Receive #1

I like to take photos with photography apps that intentionally make everything look outdated, and I will send you these fake-old photos which you can save or send, perhaps, to use or to share with people you love.

Things That You Receive #2

I like to create beautiful and unbeautiful things by bending words and slapping them into shape. Once in a while I turn these many words into documents that you can download and save, forever, onto your computer. Whether you stop to open them up again—well, that’s entirely up to you.

Thing That You Receive #3

I have gotten a little bit busier now and I have a tiny family and aunts and uncles to appease, which means that there are certain topics which I probably must avoid speaking about publicly. So I suppose here I can say “honesty”.

Thing That You Receive #4

I don’t know, I think that this kind of email-based personal writing is like whispering when you’re the last two people left awake at a sleepover and you get to say the things you’d never say in a daylight conversation, one that actually counts. Anyway, if you subscribe, you can email me about any of the letters and we can chat like we’re the last two people awake and telling secrets.

FAQ

How much does this cost?

It costs $5 a month—this helps me find the time to write this. However, if you don’t have the money to subscribe and you really, arduously wish to be part of this journey/experiment/long breathless sigh, then e-mail me and we can work something out.

Subscriber-only updates are visible through the Membership page or inside your inbox.

How often do you post?

I’m aiming to share at least 2 e-mails a month.

Can I forward the emails?

When it comes to the free posts, spread them as far and as wide as you like, on whatever platform you currently prefer. Occasionally forwarding subscribers-only emails is just fine too.
