Present Tense -

robertogreco:

A few days ago, I read these words from Laura Poitras in a profile by George Packer in The New Yorker:

I’m interested in how people understand things in present tense, and not how they tell the story back to themselves in the past. That’s why I’m not that interested in interviews. People…

the lies we tell. i am fine. i won’t buy any more books.

don’t even add honey anymore. it will overshadow the subtle hints of vanilla and coffee! on the slippery slope, my friends.

now we know.
