I Need Summer

Come on May

I’m Buddhist because…

I believe in two things; reincarnation and non linear time lines.

My carbon and nitrogen and phosphates will break down when I die, and go towards something else living, as it has done for billions of years.

And someday parts of me will be a cow in a slaughter house, leaves in the wind, and dirt beneath feet. 

Whether or not I have consciousness of this is irrelevant. 

And knowing that, sitting still with a calm mind, is a feeling of ultimate compassion and connection. 

And that connection is extenuated when I close my eyes and meditate.

And I can still feel it.

When I close my eyes I still feel the breeze on my skin, running through fields as a child. 

I feel the bubbling of joy as I sat passenger side, the roar of laughter around me and the warmth of sunlight on my skin. 

I hear my fathers voice chiming around me, the weightlessness from jumping too high on a trampoline, the coolness of water on my skin in the hot summer. 

I feel homesick, heartbroken and embarrassed; surprised, hopeful and in love.

All at once, completely around me, all encompassing and consuming. 

And these sweet memories feel so tangible and real I can’t help but believe they are still happening even as I write this. 

Memories extended in a never ending moment.

My whole life, all at once, in a big bang and I’m just experiencing it chronologically.

And what follows is the most blissful pain I could never describe. 

My ultimate goal is to make something that everyone can understand but no one can quite describe.

I’ve been in solid, blissful love for 6 months now. Turns out those moments didn’t slip away.

Approximately 1,200 miles off the southeast coast of Africa lies an island nation known as Mauritius that gives off the illusion of an underwater waterfall at the southwestern tip of the island. The visually deceiving impression, created in the water due to the runoff of sand and silt deposits, is especially effective and breathtaking in aerial shots. In fact, the illusion can even be seen on Google Maps.

This song gets me every time. White daisy passing.

"All those evenings on the back deck of our first apartment, they meant everything, but the wind just carried them off."

I’m about to leave and stay gone,  and we only just started.

I just got use to your bed, and your strange kitchen faucets, and just now found the perfect place to rest my head on your chest.

And I don’t think you realize how close this is to ending so abruptly and for no other reason than obligations.

I look at you and touch your face and know there are limited times left.

You call, to invite me over, because the days we have left are less than my fingers.

And when we drive in the soon to be summer sun, with the windows down, I can feel the moments slipping away, and all I want to do is turn around.

stop telling girls
that they’re not skinny enough

stop telling girls
that their feet are too large

stop telling girls
that their stomachs need to be flat

stop telling girls
that they should always cross their legs

stop telling girls
that they have too much muscle

stop telling girls
that a d cup is too large

stop telling girls
that their thighs are too fat

stop telling girls
to suck in their guts

stop telling girls
not to sit like a man

stop telling girls
that their fucking curls are too big

stop telling girls
that they can’t take up space
like a fucking man can
because
yes
they
fucking
can

It’s crazy how excited about my malaria vaccine I am.
