a plane crashes in the woods and no one is around to hear the sound. is there a sound? a woman alone at home crying, thinking she deserved it. well, i hear you. and your secret is safe with me.

this is the silence of a woman who knows she deserved better and can't believe she settled for subpar. this is a design created in conjunction with a faith-based support group for survivors of domestic violence. please contact me at if you would like to donate any small sum towards helping these women receive these pendants. i am trying to simply cover the costs of materials, so i can offer this organization the best deal possible.
because you certainly Don't Bury Survivors.

Speaking of which, Pine Boxes and Pillows is packed up and leaving me.

Coincidence, no?

like this coincidence of a tree, all i can see is a female form, slightly contorted, shoulders arms up neck long. strength in how she bends...

coffee break.

no matter what, all heart.

working and spending and clearing and holding and wondering and hoping and loving and losing, breaking and fixing,

glugs, snarfing, and too much love.

sitting with my friend last night in the living room, the scream of brakes and a dull thud.
a man i see on the bus sometimes
had been walking the line in the center of the road.
right in front of my house.
ambulance lights, he will survive...
surely he knew better,
but do i feel sorry for him?
i do, and i feel equally sorry for the man who hit him.
what a terrible thing.

i could go this way or i could go that way...
life is sad life is great.
okay fine life is great.

i like how the wind gave my sister a moustache^^^

i also like how my sister is outdoing me at every turn. oh man world look out!

the struggle of a voice to be heard, and boiling blood

man i wish making art were easy.

mornings and natural rhythms and flow

portland mornings, but they came to remind me, to remind me that i am here

*too much love*

i won't get into the boiling blood part, nor the
i just won't.
i don't want to be one of those people who gets all, i'm doing it this way so you should too. if you want to be good to the earth you will be. and if you're curious, you'll check it out.

i don't want to be this person, to tell you what these are really about but did you know, did you know that there have been over nine deaths already this year from domestic violence in the state of hawaii alone. did you know that so many of the men on this planet should be shot dead. i'm thinking we should bring back the guillotine. i'm thinking the time has come for a little light on this shadow.
