no diving

You can see the fun I had, yesterday morning. We liberated this cracked pink kiddie pool from a vacant lot, in our neighborhood. I wrote about it for trike diaries 2, but you get to see the photos. At home, I poked holes in it, with the cheapass awl. It was so easy, I felt […]

being valid

There’s a huge fire burning on Mt Charleston. There was a huge megacloud of smoke, a huge swath of the sky, smoke cloud. It looked weird and wrong. It made that weird orange light. Las Vegas seemed more dystopian outside than usual. There’s a windstorm. The power went out about six times, yesterday, just for […]

What I Eat

no knead for bread

Hey, do you bake bread? My friend has this super simple bread recipe. A no-knead recipe. Friend gave me a loaf, the other day–I gave them zines and seeds. “It should be good, but it turned out soft,” friend said, apologetically. “That’s ok!” I said. Crusty bread is bad for my gums. My mouth is […]

new place with angel escort

Here we are, in a new place. How did we get here? Angels brought us here, of course. Never underestimate the power of overestimating power. Ask and you shall receive, if the angels think it’s a good idea. I painted a new sign, yesterday. It felt good to say this thing I needed to say. […]

pictures of you

Is it ok to put up pictures of your relatives? It’s actually expected. What if they are old-timey and you didn’t know them? Yeah, it’s expected. Yay!  I’m normal! In the hallway. What? People hang the pictures in the hallway.   Do we have a hallway? No. To represent the passage between the past and the […]

candy relationship style announcement

Well, I finally decided.  I’m ready to announce to the world: I like Almond Joy more than Mounds.  It took me 43 years, but there you go. My reason is that the almonds are so nicely toasted!  They crunch apart so beautifully!  They taste so  crumbly delicious, with the sweet sticky coconut and lovely cheap […]

my preferences

I feel so angry, the only correct thing to do would be to go out into the desert wilderness and howl.  Howl, scream, curse humanity, maybe hit the earth with my pathetic fists.  Maybe hit some rocks.  Maybe yell at God in a language I don’t even know. I messaged my cousin this morning, the […]

community is possible

This interview our friend did with us–we got a surprise, this morning!  It was supposed to be unavailable, the recording, but here it is, now, on spotify, for anyone to hear. https://open.spotify.com/show/0vz8xRZp4BBEL3IThah4Od It’s episode 22.  I talk about how walking through the desert changed me, community is possible, the most delicious thing I ever tasted, […]

ok person Laura-Marie

I like extremes–I can find a lot of learning there.  Intense experiences, so informative–quick insight from terrible or terribly wonderful times.  I’ll take it. But some things, I need middleness.  I guess a great pain of my life was hating myself a lot, and then switching to thinking highly of myself.  I was a kid […]

My sweetie will do a street medic training.  We did a brief photoshoot so I could have a new pic for the facebook event.  The stress is bothering me–he says he’s doing it so more street medics will be trained and can attend events, so then he doesn’t have to.  He wants to retire.  He […]
