Photo a day. Day one.
At Ediya with Kelsey, who also loves to write. It’s a beautiful day, and the sun is setting as I type. I have a lot of work to do for my portfolio. It’s daunting, but exciting.
this is delicious, better than ice cream.

“Jouissance, in French, means enjoyment and pleasure, in particularly in an over-the-top sense. It contrasts with ‘plaisir’, which is a controlled state that happens within cultural norms.
Jouissance is pleasure (and any stimulation) that can be too much to bear. It may be very largely felt as suffering. It is pleasure and pain together, a feeling of being at the edge.
It can indicate a breaking of boundaries, a connection beyond the self…One of the goals of life is to manage jouissance. Unchecked emotion will control and overwhelm you. Society helps this through controlling mechanisms such as education and cultural norms. It has been said that jouissance is ‘drained’ from the body throughout life, leading to the calm of old age.”

It is better, more graceful, and far more soulful to just be what and as you are and let the other creatures be what they are too. —Clarissa Pinkola Estes
mountains of the moon has made me consider voice in a way i haven’t thought of/felt before. refreshing, brilliant book, utterly unique, & that is why it is remarkable. it is easy for me to forget how the truly beautiful are, how unyielding they are when it comes to how they live their lives, how they choose their voices, how honest they are in their creation. luckily there are those who are generous enough to remind me. they have left and are creating: books and songs and paintings, among so many other expressions, for me to swim in.
