“If I didn't define myself for myself, I would be crunched into other people's fantasies for me and eaten alive.”
--Audre Lorde

  • Good middle-of-the-night reading, reminding me of 2007 and circles of struggles:
    If you think getting what you want changes your life, you're most likely mistaken; there you are, still, in your same old body, fucking up, getting it right, no telling which. Taking it apart and picking up the pieces. Loving, fighting, still the same. There are only so many plots for our stories. Always the mess of the world around you, getting messier all the time, you in the middle of it, thinking, I just want to be left alone, I just want the people I love to be left alone. I want us to be safe and fed, I want to go to the doctor when I get sick, I want to know we all know we are loved. Is that so much to ask? Not really, if you ask me. We are not asking for
