I’d like to OWN

that I unwillingly and uncontrollably
pull out my own hair. Imagine..

one instant of weakness means months and years of shame.
Immediately I realize this. Daily I lament. Yet

despite the unrelenting distress, I don’t want
this bit of me
to DEFINE me or take time from

the joy of life.

Books and veggies, leaves of love

Quote

"Joseph Campbell wrote in his journal that it was a necessity for every body to have a place or time each day “where you don’t know what was in the newspapers that morning, you don’t know who your friends are, you don’t know what you owe anybody, you don’t know what anybody owes to you. This is a place where you can simply experience and bring forth what you are and what you might be. This is the place of creative incubation.”"
