I Swear We Can Figure This Out
77 very very short plays with accompanying photographs
by Chelsea M. Marcantel
All the pictures in this book were taken by me or of me. All the words, I wrote. All the places are places I've been. All the people are people I love.
All the things they talk about are things I think about.
All the moments played out are moments I remember.
Thanks to everyone who appears herein,
even if you never meant to.
I completed the 77 pieces in this 7"x7" book
in time for 07/07/09, my 26th birthday.
I grew up in Louisiana, which is a wonderful place to be. I moved to Chicago after I finished graduate school to see if I could make a life writing words for other people to say. It's working out in my favor so far. I am constantly on the look-out for someone to be proud of, and luckily, I never have to look very far. C'est beau, le monde.
