Breakfast in bed… plus sketchbook, journal, and Wildwood.
I would like to live in a greenhouse garden with an indoor eco pool and a cultivated butterfly population and keep it at a constant humid 85+ degrees and be naked and drunk all the time.
did your father pass away?
Yes. Last night.
sleeping next to someone is something so intimate that i miss, sometimes i think it’s more beautiful than sleeping with them
My small offering towards my father’s journey to good health.
The two candles are for healing and good health; one dark blue, the other dark purple. Their scents are: lemon balm, cedar, and heather, and the other is clove, nutmeg, lemon balm, poppy, and cedar. (I buy mine from a shop in my town- the brand is “Crystal Journey Candles” and each one has an accompanying mantra or small charm courtesy of Mystery Arts, UK)
In the dish are some shards of Stone of Sanctuary, ocean jasper, jet, obsidian, sodalite, lemon crysoprase, a tiny mug with my mother’s name on it and a piece of sage in it, an old brooch from a friend, and a piece of snowflake obsidian wrapped in a knotting spell (which I will share some other time). The smudge stick there is desert sage and balsam (I believe).
Since setting this up, I’ve been finding myself drawn to sit in front of it, either reading, resting, or in meditation. I feel rooted in calmness when I am here, as scared as I am. I will continue to hope, wish, and pray for his good health and comfort.
If any of you out there wish to put him in your prayers and good thoughts, please do. Good vibrations and well wishing might give him a second chance, not in life, but in comfort.
"Now the laborer’s task is o’er;
Now the battle day is past;
Now upon the farther shore
Lands the voyager at last.”
Dad, I’m glad I got to know you again.
I’m feeling supremely insignificant and invisible tonight.
A feeling I so sincerely wish would fuck right off.
WHY IS A CIS MAN GETTING AN AWARD FOR PLAYING A TRANS WOMAN
because that’s what ACTING is you fucking stupid child
No. It’s not about acting. It’s about them picking a cis man who is an actor to play a role that a trans woman actress…
You are right, trans men and women are vastly underrepresented in the film business- but I do believe he’s not
not aware of his position as a cis man playing a trans woman.
“The actor wrapped up his speech by acknowledging the “36 million people who have lost the battle to AIDS,” as well as “who ever felt injustice for who you are and who you love.”
Jared Leto is problematic for a whole bunch of reason that I won’t get into here, but when it comes down to it, it’s not about where his intentions lie. The fact of the matter is, a movie was made about the plight of a trans women struggling with aids and a cis man was honored for it. The whole attitude behind the film is kind of sketchy and makes me feel like telling the story of a trans woman was oscar bait the whole time instead of wanting to actually represent trans women which is only reenforced by the directors statement of not even CONSIDERING a trans woman for the role: "Never. [Are] there any transgender actors?" he said. "I’m not aiming for the real thing. I’m aiming for an experienced actor who wants to portray the thing." source
he says “the thing.” what else do you need as evidence that the attitudes behind this film are questionable? My problem doesn’t just lie in Jared Leto, but rather the whole institution that denies that this is a real problem.
Fair and extremely valid point.
Reblogging for the source and commentary :)
John Travolta has dyslexia and he has starred in over 50 films, raised a son with autism, has danced with Princess Di, is a certified personal pilot, and a goodwill ambassador.
Making fun of him for mispronunciation instead of awarding positive support for his accolades and what he has overcome is disheartening.
I’m tired of seeing illness or disabilities put before a person and their accomplishments.
Jus finished re-reading book one- now onto the second. If you dont hear from me for a week- this is why.
One of my favorite set ups.
