Frost lining the window
melts and I am trying to
see the miracle in it.
The clouds drift
out of sight and I am trying
to stop begging
for them to come back.
I am learning not to look back
once I’ve said goodbye
so I can watch people go without
a heavy heart but more
a heart beating in a world
where gravity has yet
to be proven.
Until then,
we float

I’m going to start doing every single little task like I’m completely in love with it because even though there’s reason behind taking a shower and going for a run and watering the plants what’s the point in doing it without love? if I’m not actively trying to create love and warmth with everything I do then I’m really just glossing past my life indifferently and without intent. so when you make your bed feel how soft the sheets are. feel the water run down your back when you’re having a shower. eat your breakfast like you mean it. hug like you mean it. kiss like you mean it. i certainly need to be more present when I go about my day. I need to put my senses first and put love into every task in my silly, short life

When I went in for an interview, the woman shook my hand and then casually held onto it while she said her next few sentences. She was very small and sort of old, small enough to sit sideways in her office chair with her legs hanging over the arm rest, which is how she sat as she interviewed me (after letting go of my hand.) Historically I’ve tried to keep physical contact to a minimum with strangers but I think I’m cycling out of that, which is good because she was so small and warm! Such a nice energy.

The space itself—I started today—is yellow and full of plants. There are cubbies. I’m going to be editing people’s writing. Full of plants that are mostly on tall shelves that dip down so that they’re eye level. Full of plants.

i just read a very horrifying news story so i’m going to take a break from being enraged to talk to you about my new work space. are we ready?

the waitomo caves of new zealand’s northern island, formed two million years ago from the surrounding limestone bedrock, are home to an endemic species of bioluminescent fungus gnat (arachnocampa luminosa, or glow worm fly) who in their larval stage produce silk threads from which to hang and, using a blue light emitted from a modified excretory organ in their tails, lure in prey who then become ensnared in sticky droplets of mucus.
