female action-figure doll, arms raised slightly above head
a big blob of putty
The putty is bouncing all around the doll extolling it’s virtues:
The doll is super stoked that this putty wants to join up with her. She catches the putty in her arms and they begin to go places together.
But then *doom sounds* the putty starts to reveal the other part of it’s nature. It’s softens and begins it’s process of melting down.
The doll is optimistic. She can support the putty for a short while, until it gathers itself again. But the putty opts not to exert any effort to improve this combined situation and eventually oozes everywhere all over the doll and all over everything and her whole world is immobilized by the gloop.
Lately I’ve been working on this little nugget of a dream and it’s germinating and I’m so excited and it’s precious to me.
-dandelion root (to tincture)
-red raspberry leaves (to dry)
-cut compost, topsoil and manure into garden bed
-plant the 3 sisters
I’m moving beyond the exciting feeling of overwhelming love.
I’m moving into exploring the depths of the emotion.
What is it to love deeply?
What is it to love someone who may not return that love?
Does love breed more love?
How has my focus shifting from “looking for love” to “exploring love” changed the way I perceive the love that exists around me?
Does love for people, places, things, and non-human beings have different characteristics from one another?
What is tangible about love?
On this day:
In 2009 – juice is not a meal replacement (but I still enjoy it)
In 2008 – meeting the amazing Julie Keon for the first time
In 2006 – if I had to re-do this today, calling the police would not have happened
In 2005 – back when kindness was a thing we shared
