'The wild flowers I encountered now were more a common bunch, growing as they did in bright blankets...As I passed them, I felt the presence of my mother so acutely that I had the sensation that she was there; once I even had to pause to look around for her before I could go on."

Fear of Waves
Happy baby. Bobbing. Strong arm. Slap. Hard
water. Bottle-green swells smack, splatter. Chuck
the chin. Bluster. Rip-roaring rumpus. Scutched.
Scuttled. Fathomless undertone.
Mumble. Mutter. Hugging the shore. An arm
to step over. A finger. Toddler. Hand
on the ankle. Grip, gripe. Carom. Cuff. Crest.
Sea legs knee-deep. Spanking. Spanking.
Sullen. Sullen. Muscled shallows hunch, hump
at the bunk bed. Shrimp. Squirt. Grunt. Grumble. Grim
bone-bruiser. Shunter. Lurcher. Breaker. No
kidding around. Knock down drag out. Keeps.

“‘Do you really think people change, or just seem to change?’ Sheila said, scanning the crowd. She would just as soon take the opposite position. She was like that. She never betrayed guilt about what she was doing to him, and that she behaved so normally around him made him think she either loved him so much that her feelings for other men didn’t affect her feelings for him, or that she didn’t love him at all. ‘Because I think everything is already there inside of you,’ she went on. ‘What you are. By the time childhood is over. What I think is that you just become this purer and purer version of what you already are.’
“‘You mean who you already are.’
“‘No. That’s not what I meant,’ softly, thoughtfully, as if to herself.”
—April Ayers Lawson, from “Virgin”

This week, you’re maybe going to feel a little fragile, like you’re soft, like you’re bending, like you’re barely even solid, like one hard word could crack you right in half. Don’t try to make yourself unbreakable, don’t try to replace your softness with stone or steel. Just do what helps you live, do what helps you get through the day, do whatever you can to remember how good it is to spend your days in very small ways, sometimes. Listen to songs in other languages, listen to songs without words.

“A modest, unassuming man until his passing, Karales never climbed the ladder of fame, didn’t seem to care about it. He just did his job. His ethic and personality seemed more like that of a carpenter or refrigerator repairman than a gallery-hopping artist, making him perfect for the job with Smith … For the rest of his career, Karales displayed a profound, velvety darkroom printing technique reminiscent of Smith’s. Karales, though, wasn’t trying to change the world. Maybe Smith could have learned a little something from him.”
Sam Stephenson on James Karales’s apprenticeship with photographer W. Eugene Smith.
"I want this one moment. It’s - it’s what I want in a relationship… which might explain why I am single now. Ha, ha. It’s, uh - It’s kind of hard to - it’s that thing when you’re with someone… and you love them and they know it… and they love you and you know it… but it’s a party… and you’re both talking to other people… and you’re laughing and shining… and you look across the room… and catch each other’s eyes… but - but not because you’re possessive… or it’s precisely sexual… but because… that is your person in this life. And it’s funny and sad, but only because this life will end, and it’s this secret world… that exists right there… in public, unnoticed, that no one else knows about. It’s sort of like how they say that other dimensions exist all around us, but we don’t have the ability to perceive them. That’s - That’s what I want out of a relationship. Or just life, I guess. Love. — I sound stoned. I’m not stoned. — Thanks for dinner. Bye.”

'Movement increases endorphin's in our bodies. Endorphin's are the chemical that make us feel good! The road to radical self love is paved with doing things that make us feel good! So get out and move today! Your body will thank you for it, RADICALLY!'
Beautiful. Thanks Carly for the tip!
