Do a Miranda July Project? Check.

From Learning to Love You More, Assignment #9: Draw a constellation from someone’s freckles.


I got so many bug bites in Puerto Rico that I asked Melissa to connect the dots for me. She used the edge of a magazine to draw the lines straight. Body constellations are the new braiding each others’ hair.

  1. When I was little, my best friend and I would always talk about how you could see the Big Dipper in freckles on my forearm, plain as day. I had not thought of that for years, but when I read this I checked just now. Turns out I have about a billion more freckles and can no longer see the constellation. It would probably be easy to make up some new ones, though.
