Hello! Birthday week: excellent. Movies: Fun. Got complimented on my shoes. Me and my social justice are quite a trendy pair. Book sale: Swoon. Speechless. Nat King Cole 2-disc CD for $3. Givemethatit'smybirthday! 

Sleeping somewhat better. But still losing weight. Bad. It's tough to eat when I have no appetite. This week I was looking forward to a presentation for an alternative therapy, but felt sick all of a sudden and had to miss it. Mrf. Will try again next time.

Events of my life may be seemingly out of order. Yes. Yes they are, to me. But what I love about right now is the time I have to explore and create and imagine...absolutely anything. There's a kind of freedom in prison. Am I stuck? Looks like it. Feels icky. And slow. And not very fun. But at the same time, I'm learning to embrace the simple things, to identify what's important, and truly to escape pain through music, art, etc. It's a discipline. I guess it's like meditation, except more like Fantasia. I'll try to explain it more when I can.

I'm so thankful for this year. I turned 20 on 10/20/2010. I outlived Joan of Arc. What's next? :)

Hope you all are having a terrific autumn!

  1. This post strengthens me in the Lord. "the simple things" "identifing what is important". These are profound truths. When we decided that busyness was the way to travel though life...we decided to never really focus on what was before us. Thanks for sharing.
