Reverse Shibboleth

The practice of answering a cellphone with a generic “Hello?” as if you didn’t already know exactly who was calling—which is a little like the egg requirement that marketers added to early cake mixes in the 1950s, an antiquated extra step that’s only there to reassure you that it’s an authentic home-cooked meal, just like…

Gnossienne

A moment of awareness that someone you’ve known for years still has a private and mysterious inner life, and somewhere in the hallways of their personality is a door locked from the inside, a stairway leading to a wing of the house that you’ve never fully explored—an unfinished attic that will remain maddeningly unknowable to…

Things Left Unsaid

So much to say yet so little are these words, phrases and sentences don’t make sense anymore. Wish you’d been more around to hear this, though little by little everything tore apart. You know we both saw it coming yet we never spoke about it, we both wanted it so badly yet we destroyed it…

The “I’m Tired” Project

The “I’m Tired” Project utilizes photography, the human body, and written words as a tools to highlight the lasting impact of everyday micro-aggressions, assumptions, and stereotypes and pull back the layers of discrimination to reveal thoughts and feelings that aren’t usually voiced through fear of backlash and lack of being relatable. Quick Link : The “I’m…

Vemödalen

The frustration of photographing something amazing when thousands of identical photos already exist—the same sunset, the same waterfall, the same curve of a hip, the same closeup of an eye—which can turn a unique subject into something hollow and pulpy and cheap, like a mass-produced piece of furniture you happen to have assembled yourself. Coined…

The Experimental Journey

Life is an experimental journey undertaken involuntarily. It is a journey of the spirit through the material world and, since it is the spirit that travels, it is the spirit that is experienced. That is why there exist contemplative souls who have lived more intensely, more widely, more tumultuously than others who have lived their…

Trumspringa

The temptation to step off your career track and become a shepherd in the mountains, following your flock between pastures with a sheepdog and a rifle, watching storms at dusk from the doorway of a small cabin, just the kind of hypnotic diversion that allows your thoughts to make a break for it and wander…

Semaphorism

A conversational hint that you have something personal to say on the subject but don’t go any further. An emphatic nod, a half-told anecdote, an enigmatic ‘I know the feeling’, which you place into conversations like those little flags that warn diggers of something buried underground. Coined in 2012 by John Koenig in The Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows, a…

Querencia

A place from which one’s strength is drawn, where one feels at home; the place where you are your most authentic self. It is a metaphysical concept in the Spanish language. The term comes from the Spanish verb “querer” which means “to desire“. In bullfighting, a bull may stake out his querencia, a certain part…
