i dont want to have a job anymore. i just want to draw all day. going into hybernation in prep for supernova bye bye bye bye
Been feeling really dumb about not drawing any proper pictures lately and only doing etsy crafts, so today I did a 7 page zine about some feelings I have trouble talking about.
A while ago I wrote 2 letters full of things i never got to say to people who made me feel at one point or another. i sat at the front of the house and burned them both in hopes of burning those people and feelings out of my heart.
spoilt by leaves and flowers today, stretching out these mystic hands
There’s nothing more complex than human beings. And while we come alive in our idiosyncrasies, they sometimes tear us apart when they should humble us and hold a mirror up to our own shortcomings and gifts.
To this real love, I owe you an apology. I’ve dismissed you, belittled you and written you off because you didn’t appear at my doorstep in the beautifully wrapped package I was conditioned to seek. I should have seen the best of me in you, but I didn’t recognize your face. But I see you now.
Thank you for holding out, knowing I’d find my way back…
Beautiful love letter to real love. As Susan Sontag memorably put it, “Nothing is mysterious, no human relation. Except love.”
For more on how our cultural conditioning makes us dismiss this kind of love, see Dan Savage on the price of admission.
"What’s the most important thing your dad has ever taught you?"
"If someone hurts your feelings, don’t worry, because that person will also have a turn to get their feelings hurt. And also, you should never undermine people or make them feel unimportant. And also, if you drop out of school, he won’t deal with you anymore."
