I’ve moved over to a new web host and in doing so, have kept the domain but not kept my old WordPress. One of the reasons for this reset is to define the new era of my life. In March, I begin to be in the world of the 30s. I don’t consider this move a shrugging off of the past, but rather, a foretelling of the future. The previous website has been archived, in its 30 gigabytes of glory, and now here we are. It will be a rocky start, but I look forward to pushing things forward with this new site. Please forgive the jumbled design at first. It will most certainly improve itself as we move forward.
What is Cambodia Bladed?
Cambodia Bladed was my series of prose poems written for and about my second and most recent time spent in Cambodia, from July to September, 2015. It was published between October and December, 2015. The series explores time, space, experience, mindfulness, among many other things. In many ways, and for many reasons, I wrote it as a direct response to the sort of heaviness I was feeling during and after this most recent time period.
For me, the experience writing Cambodia Bladed was also one of experimentation. I had been experimenting with photography and writing as a multidisciplinary form during my Washington series, Melmont piece, and Costa Rica/Panama piece. In a lot of ways, Cambodia Bladed was the high point for this form. I still use this form for my Beyond the Neon series, but I think I’ve exhausted my interest in the style associated with the form. I’m grateful for Queen Mob’s for letting me serialize this piece over the three months. You can read it at the links below:
