Here is my heart, each beed bleeds: life, entanglement, breath.
I bypass ecstasy to begin with a question
My name is Kelsay Elizabeth Myers, and I’m a Korean adoptee. I make sense of the world through words and objects. I write. I make art. I eat. I read. I sometimes wear a bowler hat. I research adoption psychology, dialogical self theory, fairy tales, movies, and love. I began with the heart after all.
I take inspiration from Kimberly Leighton in “Being Adopted and Being a Philosopher: Exploring Identity and the ‘Desire to Know’ Differently”:
And so, I continue to write, make art, read, play on my iPhone, and ask questions in the hopes that these will lead me to new questions, and new frames.
