imaginary outfit: mapmaker

Today I feel like demarcating a geography, fixing locations. To map something is to break it down into defined boundaries, discrete parts locked into place, to create a specific order to the world. It's an action of sharing known quantities.

What specifically I want to map, I don't know. Maybe this impulse towards control results from the muffling blanket of uncertainty covering the world right now. Almost every person in my family has been buffeted by these bad winds that are blowing. I don't know where they will land. Maybe this is all just an gesture towards fixing them again in a safe and bounded world.

I like the idea of being a mapmaker.
