Ceiling dwellers

At the Alette in Oakland conference recently, I passed out small mirrors with a photo of Alice Notley glued to the back. I asked people to hold the mirror, reflective side up, under one eye and pretend they lived on the ceiling. The point of “ceiling dwelling” is to make the everyday world strange, to help cultivate the discipline of disobedience.

I feel such gratitude to the Alette in Oakland organizers at the Bay Area Public School for making all kinds of amazing things happen that weekend.
