(albums for these words – click a number: one, two. | a playlist for these words – click here) days like this, like today, are my favourite kind of day. one moment spent in beautifully decorated coffee shops with high ceilings, low lights, and wide windows allowing for the sun to beam through giving you […]Read more "you can start over whenever you want to"
I have a deep love for Shrek, and growing up with this franchise I never expected in my adult life that connecting with a green ogre – that deeply needs therapy – would partake in my awareness of what it means to be human, whilst a frog king taught me how deeply flawed we are […]Read more "Ogres really do have layers: a reflection on ‘Shrek’"
(albums for these words – click a number: one. two. three. ) I hope you know that you are wholly valued and seen in this moment. that even if you may not feel the embrace of the world or the people you compare yourself to, that even though it sounds incredible cliché – you are […]Read more "for when comparison plagues you,"
(a playlist for this post – shuffle works best) as I write this it’s currently very late, and I can hear the rain pouring outside my window hitting the glass like an amazon delivery driver knocking down your door as if it’s the end of the world. the rain has been constant for the past […]Read more "brewing"
to write these words alone, it has taken me two weeks and 5 days to acknowledge them, and subsequently regurgitate them onto some type of medium. they have sat in my throat making room for themselves, pulling up chairs to hang curtains that obstruct my view and lull me to sleep and honestly, I wish […]Read more "I’ve been feeling uninspired"
( a continuation from we’re all a mess but, that’s besides the point) – a playlist for this post – autumn unfolds itself within me, and it has been my undoing. where anxiety and depression have cloaked me and warmed me in their embrace. I watch the sun rise and set, laying down wrapped in my […]Read more "sorry, but there’s a pandemic"
(an album for this post) a few days ago I wrote a piece about doubt in a newsletter, it’s stuck with me in a different way than my other words and thoughts normally do. as if getting older gives you more room to delve into your thoughts unknowingly and unwillingly; especially this year in […]Read more "a little bit, often."
I’ve come back to this page numerous times over the past couple of weeks. today alone, I’ve sat at my desk, on my bed, on the floor dragging myself back to this space for the fourth time trying to draw whatever words wish to come out of me. I wouldn’t say I’m feeling uninspired; I’ve […]Read more "for the one who needs stability,"
I see you. I’ve been very much the same, for a while now. where picking up the paintbrush seems more of an effort than it should be, and the colours don’t seem to flow out of you as easily as they used to. where, the words aren’t coming out of your red, muscle thing that […]Read more "for the one who is struggling to create,"
(an album for this post) ultimately, I know that when it’s hard soon come, it’ll be easier. the tides won’t be so high and they’ll surface onto the seabed, blending into one another eventually washing away. and, with honesty comes vulnerability, and I’m still learning how to plant those seeds. I’ve been sitting in the […]Read more "yellow trees"
