i just wanna collect bones and pick cloudberries. fuck's sake. i haven't spent a single day of the summer in the deep woods yet.

i hope i can go camping this weekend despite all the bullshit, ugh. if nothing else i want to sit inside the camper in complete solitude somewhere deep in the woods, fighting mosquitos, taking pics of trees, listen to some folk music and get my drawing on.

i tried to take cute pictures of the gang napping under the elderberry bushes, but then i got photobombed.

"Things falling apart is a kind of testing and also a kind of healing. We think that the point is to pass the test or to overcome the problem, but the truth is that things don’t really get solved. They come together and they fall apart. Then they come together again and fall apart again. It’s just like that. The healing comes from letting there be room for all of this to happen: room for grief, for relief, for misery, for joy." -- Pema Chodron

I wrote about the good time I've been having with the comic Stages of Rot by Linnea Sterte ( from Peow Studio. I hope you'll give it a read, & support Linnea's work!

it just doesn't fucking matter in 100 years, nothing does.

wether we turn to dust, ascend to the heavens, return to the source, become reborn as another creature, whatever you wish to believe... have nothing to lose and everything to gain letting go of fear & judgement of yourself and others.

love grows the more it is shared, and it starts with forgiving yourself fully & thoroughly. the rest is mirrored and will come automatically.

we are all hurting. be kind. become rich from giving.

If you need help, you have every right to ask for it. The world is cruel and seeking out kindness is not a sin.

it's such an unusual feeling to not feel crushed by that ever-present leaden feel of depression. i'm still nowhere near "well" but my good days have increased from being a rare occasion that i need to cherish tightly, to something that became a near-norm the last few months. i still have bad days, bad weeks. but they are rare like the good days used to be, kind of.

i can't even begin to describe how thankful i am to be able to feel enjoyment, inspiration and hope for an even brighter future.

@Rumpelcita i would love to read an article about that!
