Electricity hangs in the sky

November 27, 2001

i was sitting indian-style on the floor when kid in candy started and my heavy spirits were lifted to the dim ceiling. all of a sudden, i was back in portland, sitting under blue skies. i was in a record store, sifting through discs with dawnie. i was laughing on the porch, taking sips of my ruby red.

rebecca gates rocks. and so do the boys from the chicago underground and tortoise who joined her.

while walking home, i thought of the helicopters flying over downtown los angeles, like flies circling a trash can. a man was getting into his beamer and a lady was climbing out of a van. i passed my sad car and blew a kiss goodnight.


  • I'm Christine, and this is a slice of my life—a sweet, rich, wildly indulgent slice that would taste really good with a scoop of Breyers vanilla bean ice cream. Read more >>

  • I run a darling, friendly, little graphic design studio.
    I look on the bright side.
    I take photos. Lots of photos.
    I wish on stars and on websites.

  • I built my first web site 7 years ago and got 15 seconds of fame. (It changed my life.)
    I launched, then relaunched, an online magazine.
    I admitted to several embarrassing crushes.
    I consumed more bacon than any human should and lived to tell the tales.
