The first immediate pattern I recognized was present more-so in my blog exercises than the discourses I created. I repeatedly associated non-religious objects and spaces with religious symbols and places; for instance, I called my childhood library “my church” and also referenced the how my grandmother’s typewriter took the shape of “forbidden fruit” for me as a child. In a way, I think the transference represents my personal take on literature and literature-related items.
One pattern I recently started to see was my mention of my mother. I talked about my mom briefly in every single discourse, which is fascinating to me because growing up I was always a daddy’s girl. I think that my consistent references back to my mom really reflect how much of an influence she has been on my life. So much of what I appreciate about my childhood (trips to the library, performances co-created with my siblings, etc.) was facilitated and encouraged by her.
