“How did I get so lucky, to find this love?” He was half-asleep, naked except for his chonies again, his hair so messy and beautiful. “Oh, you have ocd and narcolepsy. You were in the bargain bin!” I looked at his smiling mouth and closed eyes. We were laughing. I imagined the bargain bin at… Read More »

peace is in the body

I’m talking about feeding people, how to love, how we have bodies that need to be tended to, in pain or hunger or anything.  To have a body is to need. Peace is in the body. There you go–good luck with your needs.  If we want to learn at school, we need to eat.  If… Read More »

souper veg fest

Laura-Marie is my name–making soup at 3am is my game.  Veg are my darlings.  Oh delicious, the bounty of Earth. The sweet potatoes got overdone but were still pretty good.  The broth was spicy and so delicious.  I was concerned it would be too much ginger.  But ginger, garlic, pepper, salt, and the veg-ness was… Read More »

memento mori

This ATC is for a Halloween swap-bot assignment.  I’m really grateful I signed up for it.  Never knew I could do like this.  It’s blue, says memento mori, and depicts a bird skeleton. truth I have a new favorite Dorothy Day quote.  She co-started the Catholic Worker movement in 1933.  I live in community at… Read More »

completed embroidery

praying for those who migrate

Please consider praying for those who migrate, and consider supporting in more physical ways too.  A lot of my friends like No More Deaths. Respect and dignity are not optional.  I think borders are mostly ridiculous.  I’m an anarchist.  I want to be a butterfly flying over a wall.  If we had a functional culture… Read More »

nipples

Hey, I’ve been thinking about nipples.  Mostly my own, but other people’s nipples too.  Bodies, social norms, different kinds of comfort.  Physical comfort and emotional comfort can be opposite. Bras have always hurt me, but being stared at by lascivious men hurt me more.  So I chose the physical discomfort of bras over the pain… Read More »

linux

“Yeah, I figured I might as well go full geek and install Linux on it,” I told Ming.  We were in the driveway–I was eating my lunch of rice, beans, and zucchini with garlic.  “Wow, I never said that sentence before,” I added. The other day when I fixed my broken websites, I thought maybe… Read More »
