(it's pronounced "ryan")
i feel the most like "myself" when i am fully here and now,
when the past and the future do not exist,
when the smell-taste-sound-thought-sight-feeling of something pulls me into the place where time stops and
i just am
examples: hand made food & beverages, desert nights, psychedelic music, cuddles, listening & being heard, woven fabric, the mountains, sunrises & sunsets, feeling connected or one-with-the-all.... stuff humans like i guess
food + alc mention
there is a bar and restaurant with live music about a 10 min drive behind my house, back into the hills. it is in the middle of nowhere. there is no cell phone service. the food is good. the walls are made out of glass bottles and concrete. the sun sets up there and it is extra beautiful.
this sign is hanging up in the front: “if you’re in a rush you’re in the wrong place.”
lovely end to my sunday 🖤
"What more do you want?
The ingredients in our body were assembled in the hearts of long dead stars over billions of years... and have assembled themselves spontaneously into temporary structures that can think and feel and explore. And those structures will decay away at some point. And in a very far future there will be no structures left. So there we are, we exist in this very little window were we can observe this magnificent universe.
Why do you want any more?"
lovey dovey, fb mention (+)
as a side note, my husband and i met on facebook. we had mutual acquaintances, but never met and started messaging a ton before meeting irl a week later.
i have all those messages in a much easier-to-read format and it was so sweet reading some of those early convos...
WHICH reminded me that i first won his heart by recommending that he read The Birds by Aristophanes, and that he first won mine by actually reading it and sending thoughtful, funny notes back. <3 <3
omg going through my tumblr, which i started in 2010 but haven't posted on in ages.
tbh i scrubbed the most embarrassing early posts back in the day, haha so now it's mostly pictures, and if you go back far enough 2010-2011 it's a lot of quotes from things i was reading at the time:
thomas merton, richard rohr, fyodor dostoevski, rumi....
aaaaaaand time warp, those are all things i am currently reading....
Here’s my new playlist dedicated to mysticism and deconstruction! Enjoy!
i’ve been letting my buzz cut grow out a little because i live in socal and my scalp was getting sunburned haha. but now it’s longer than it has been since the initial buzz cut and it’s always sticking up in weird places.
so i can trim it, and wear a hat for protection or i can leave it, and wear a hat to cover its messiness. haha
either way i need to wear hats more ☀️
