momma came out for a trailer sleepover and part of my weekend ritual is to eat breakfast at the Comfort Cafe, a magical and colorful restaurant run by folks in recovery, a place where i am filled up with hope for my own recovery, a place where i can talk about the joys and difficulties of sobriety, about codependency, about mental illness, about spirituality, about pancakes, about tiny dinosaur shaped coffee cream holders, about the weather, about crystals and stones and love and care bears and gender and butter and raspberry vinaigrette. it was special to share this place with my madre and to marvel together at the human spirit and art and the interconnectedness of all things. #sentimentaljuli#colors#mosaic#comfortcafe#serenitystarranch#recovery#motherdearest#madremia#pancakes#yum
happy birthday Nick! the sun rays that woke me up this morning felt like a morning hug from you. and this lil tattoo in your memory whispers love notes into my ear every time i stretch. you are a magical light in this world and i miss you and i love you.
my new trailer mate 😻taking care of non-human animals has always been therapeutic for me. i have a bucketful of issues with the pet trade, but i think cohabiting with other critters can teach us a lot about the interconnectedness of all things, keep us laughing, and provide a sense of love and companionship. my cat, who snuggled me through the deepest darkest parts of my depression, is living with my mom currently because i live in the woods where there are beautiful native birds who were here long before me and my hunter kitty (thanks mom!). i'm very excited to have a new friend to talk to :) #curlyhairedtarantula#arachnid#countryqueers#newfriends#colorfulcurtains#petlove#letsmolt👯
new moon in gemini mañana. the sign of creative manifestation. a perfect time to celebrate one of my nearest and dearest geminis Madi @womandaughter_ who lately has been pouring her creative energy into a fabulous project called @artsnackartsnack , an art vending machine that sells original handmade art all under $20. you can back art snack on kickstarter right now and for the next 12 days!!!! check out their groovy video (link to kickstarter in my bio for the duration of the campaign!) in the twin spirit of gemini, i have chosen some madi + juli twinsies photos for this post. i could go on and on about how much i love her and what an incredible artist she is, but it would never be enough, so this will have to do.
this mornings' full moon has me thinking about my hopes and dreams and creative pursuits [and how long my hair is getting]. my power deck (made by @vanwaring they are truly magical thank you Van!) suggested that i start somewhere, which is a great reminder for me because my anxious brain tends to think in all or nothing terms, like get it all done RIGHT NOW or don't even try. today i'm going to ask my inner acorn for guidance and plant one tiny seed. water it with love. love y'all. #fullmooninsagittarius#startsomewhere#powerdeck#magic#elvishair#goodmorning
this weekend i saw two cottonmouths at work and heard Linkin Park on the radio. #winning
