Hi, here is one of many new poems that I’ve written. Writing poetry has been very helpful lately. I don’t know what I would do if I didn’t have this outlet to write.
Well I hope you enjoy it, don’t worry, you don’t have to understand it. Just enjoy 🙂

Hair- The Body’s Landscape
While I was going through instagram an ad for a shaving company popped up on my feed. It was very different than any other shaving ad I’ve seen. First of all, the women in the ad had hair on their body. Continue reading “P1: Lengths To Body Love”
Mental Health, Physical Health, Creative Projects, and Getting Back
It’s been a while since I’ve done one of these. I think the last one I did was around February. Now that it’s summer I can finally tell you a few things to come. I know I haven’t been posting lately and I think the last post I did was about two weeks ago, so it’s been a while! I’m sorry about that, things got really busy on the last few weeks of school and it seemed like I had no time for any personal projects or ideas I had. Plus, work takes up some of my free time so I had no motivation to set aside blog time. I feel like it’s been a month since I’ve done anything on here, but that should change soon! I’ve been going through a lot of things and I will be honest and say Continue reading “i only said – an update”
“This night has opened my eyes…”
Hi, it’s been about a month? Maybe? And this “night” is not any particular night, its a lyric from a song that describes a lot of the first month and few weeks of the new year, and I thought I could reflect a little bit on it. Not in specifics but you know what I mean! Continue reading “New Harmony – An Update”
A new year?! Who would have thought…
This new year has brought a lot on my plate, good and bad, and I think I’ve learned so much about myself. I don’t have all the answers, and that’s okay. I think this year I placed a lot of effort into my blogging and creative flow, maybe not as much as I wanted to, but obviously something is different with my style, aesthetic, and the things I like to talk about. I also feel that I have connected so much to my roommates, and although we are a full house of 6, it is still manageable and great to have people in your life. I can’t wait to see what shenanigans we get into ;). To be honest with you, I do and don’t remember much of 2018 yet I can feel the affects of it. Not that I didn’t pay attention, believe me I’ve taken everything in that has happened to me this year. I feel that all of this looking back should be beyond reminiscing, I always believed in growing and moving from the past. I do remember this year was very musical for me. I went to a lot of concerts and drowned myself in music to the point that it’s my matter of photosynthesis. I’ve met new people and reconnected with old ones. I don’t want to dabble what happened in 2018, but it was a great year that showed me so much beauty in life, people, and myself. Thing are going to be different but that’s what I love about life. I have so much love to give and share with others and I am so excited for the new things and memories to make.
I love you all very much.
Song – We’ll Let You Know by Morrissey
Hey guys, sorry for not keeping up with the gratitude. I know I couldn’t make posts but every day that I missed I did think about what I was grateful for. Today is a special day, and is actually one of my favorite holidays- Thanksgiving!
“I am grateful for being able to come home and spend time with my family”…

Another double post! Enjoy!
“I am grateful for the study times with RJ”
Sometimes getting out of the house is just what I need. It’s even better to have RJ to keep me company. Staying stuck in the house really does take a toll. So go outside, get some fresh air.
” I am grateful for writing poetry”
I’m not the best poetry, but we all can’t be. I’m learning every day new ways to improve my writing. Sometimes I have really bad days or the first draft is terrible. Nothing is perfect the first time. Practice leads to improvement.
National Gratitude Month
“I am very grateful for sleep”
Although I don’t get enough of it, sleep is very important to me. I try to sleep in as much as I can during the weekend and for the past Continue reading “Gratitude – Day 3”
Everyone thinks of love.
Everything seems to be about love.
I dream about kissing
the stars and the ground.
Where we cast our air and tread upon.
I’d like to think I write
something other than food
that becomes the nesting of safety.
Can I have some on the side
and give me some honey.
Mix it with the vinegar
and the mustard seed.
Paste on your skin and
beam in the sunlight
We pretend we are the sun
and color ourselves with rays of gold.
Let’s get old and brown.
Day 11: Write a poem based on your favorite lyric
I am overcome by the process of living
With what they throw back and what I can catch
And I try to pull the buckets of tears over my sail
To take me out to the vastness.
And I see your arms and a stretch it made
From your skin brought a wave
Of a happy disaster, what a surprise.
And as the wave cast, Your sweat pushed me through,
To the undiscovered temples.
And your words salted my tongue and eyes
As bubbles orbed around me
And we floated past the waving grass.
“My life in an upturned boat, marooned on a cliff
You brought me a great big flood
And you gave me a lift
To care, what a gift
You tell me with your tongue
And your breath was in my lungs
And you float over the rift”
“Simple Song” by The Shins
Björk will be releasing a new album Utopia this November 24th. She has released two singles “The Gate” and “Blissing me”
Björk’s latest single released yesterday. Of course, I impulsively dropped what I was doing and clicked the youtube video. At the first ten words, she said I paused the video and threw my phone. She forever will be indescribably beautiful. The lyrics along with what I believe to a harp just filled my insides with this new kind of beauty that I have not yet been able to see and feel since probably her Vespertine album. Of course, I have seen her musical beauty in Biophilia and Vulnicura, however, this beauty that I am talking about is something so pure and innocent. Almost eclectic and emotional. It makes me think of love, relationship, beauty, sex, and passion. Which is pretty much the same feeling I would get when I would listen to Vespertine or the song “Stonemilker” from Vulnicura. The album Vespertine is personally one of my most favorite collective albums of Björk’s, and in this single, “Blissing Me”, I have gotten the taste again of her emotional diary

Special times are always
And too surreal that I want to bite my cheek off
or fall down the stairs
Just to wake myself from this dream.
And while we walk on the side walks
I can see you look at me
And the days are burning our skin.
The suns gets in my eyes
but I can still see yours brighter.
For this weeks SOTW here is a little taste of the artist CUCO. Who is an 18 year old Chicano artist. I may have mention about on of his songs a long time ago. The one I a currently listening to is
Lover Is A Day
There is other songs but this one is always on my mind.
Last night my boyfriend told me that CUCO is coming to Austin, Texas in October. And of course…I want to go!
I hope everyone has a wonderful and safe week, my prayers are out to my fellow Texans during Hurricane Harvey.
If you have any music recommendations PLEASE let me know!
Give it a listen, give music a chance.
whats in the foot
and suddenly stepped on the seed
the burr starts to grow and mold
Times in my mind
been thinking of weeds
You make me better, you make it easy
before the kisses
even the voice
or thought of you
is as juicy and sweet
i sing a song for you baby
You have me so use me wisely, because most of the time I’m forgotten in the bottom
Bitter I may be and fresh, thumb my head till I shed even.
Zesting perfectly till you can taste me again.
Of course the way I spend my morning is watching the latest YouTube videos. I was watching a video about 20 minutes ago from youtuber lindseyrem and it was about her latest summer playlist. Already from the first artist she mentioned- Puzzle aka an extension of The Garden– I was interested in what else she would mention. The next artist was Temporex
I’ve been looking for a new artist with this type of music. It’s calming,simple, and relaxing. One way I could describe this sound is that it’s rounder, polished in a way. I really enjoyed the song Nice Boys from the album We Care. There is no effort to listen to and it is nice for some background sound and moments of lounging around.
This is a pretty nice find, and I can’t wait to lay back, write, read, and listen to it all summer.
Give it a listen, give music a chance.
