a welcome Letter from nan
To Whom it May Concern,
My name is Nan Hutchins. I am a patron, sponsor and self-appointed board member of the Body Philosophy Club. Like me in the very beginning, you are asking yourself many questions. Which San Francisco Public Library do we meet at? May I suggest the Sunset branch? Is there an annual membership fee? Should I dust off my copy of Being and Nothingness? What if I prefer HDT? Do they even teach Henry David Thoreau anymore? What's with everyone obsessing over their own bodies? Wouldn't you like to swim in the ocean rather than stare at pictures of it on your telephone? Am I going nuts?
From what they've told me-- and this is really the hilarious part -- the Body Philosophy Club is in fact just a clothing business that wants you to be comfortable! There are no meetings! Everyone is a member! There's no Nietzsche! When I first walked into their flagship store that happened to be in a tiny one bedroom apartment on 48th Avenue I reacted poorly (surveillance footage below, I did NOT authorize). What are these prices? Forty dollar used linen? Are you insane? But then when I finally got their attention and tried on some of that forty dollar linen, well, the rest became history! Since finding the Body Philosophy Club they've asked me to partake in several photo shoots. I will tell you, I never expected to become a model at age seventy. I did, however, expect to be comfortable. And I hope you do too-- no if, Nans or buts about it.
p.s. I agreed to "model" because I believe recycling is essential to our dear planet's future. I hope you do too.
