I was at a bar a couple weeks ago

I was at a bar a couple weeks ago and a man asked why I wasn't in a relationship. He meant it as a compliment. He said "how have you not been scooped up already?" I think I paused for a second, to swallow my wine, and responded with a very sarcastic "beats me." But the question took me by surprise. I think because it was misplaced, as if it wasn't something I chose. Like I was just a crust of bread in the sand, waiting for a big dark gull to swoop in and eat me. Maybe I'd be down, and sometimes I do feel that way. I'm not immune to standing over the kitchen counter, eating pasta from the pot, wondering when the next gull will fly by. I've been thinking recently about what it means to be alone. I can be so enamored by the idea, I'll think "alone is good for me right now," but then I'll also find myself three glasses in, stalking someone on Instagram with my hand down my pants. I think there's an art to it, and I'm still navigating. It's a new feeling to not know the map, where right and left are irrelevant, where east may be just as good as west. As lawless as the pacific, circling its coast looking for bread.

Garrison captures sex, loneliness, and the random thrills of life with such poignancy, you yearn to read more…"

 - THE NEAVE

Perhaps the most distinguishing feature in One Dollar Stories is the transformation of the ordinary into sensuality. This is directly accomplished through Garrison  making every mundane gesture into an affair of intimacy...Its brevity strikes directly as pure drama and after you finish the story in about one minute your head whirls at how it is possible.”
