notes in the margins ongoing, 2020-
A collection of texts from my undergraduate years has been packed, unpacked, and reshelved over several decades, yet never reread. When I originally read the volumes, I made notations in the margins and left passages underlined and marked. In my notes I was speaking to my future self, thinking perhaps moments ahead. Now, decades later, the notes form an archive of my thoughts from the past and speak with a much louder voice than the long-forgotten text.
