A little bit outside of things is where some people feel each other.
I don't have any problem understanding why people flunk out of college or quit their jobs or cheat on each other or break the law or spray-paint walls. A little bit outside of things is where some people feel each other. We do it to replace the frame of family. We do it to erase and remake our origins in their own images. To say, I too was here.
"But 'getting lost' still takes us somewhere; and being lost is a way of inhabiting a space by registering that it's not familiar: being lost can in its turn become a familiar feeling."
- Sara Ahmed, Queer Phenomenology
