"I want to talk to everybody I can as deeply as I can. I want to be able to sleep in an open field, to travel west, to walk freely at night."
Sylvia Plath (via theriverjordyn)
in the dark of this place
there’s the glow of your face
there’s the dust on the screen
of this broken machine
why do i feel shaky
after spilling a beer on my bedroom floor
and brushing with jealousy
and two weeks left
and a lack of inspiration to paint
a commissioned piece
and a heavy heart
and the uncertainty of the universe
that weighs upon a minuscule human
who feels shaky
after spilling a beer on her bedroom floor.
"The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely or unhappy is to go outside, somewhere where they can be quite alone with the heavens, nature and God. Because only then does one feel that all is as it should be and that God wishes to see people happy, amidst the simple beauty of nature. As longs as this exists, and it certainly always will, I know that then there will always be comfort for every sorrow, whatever the circumstances may be. And I firmly believe that nature brings solace in all troubles."

Today is Casimir Pulaski Day. Here’s an early demo. Not sure when I recorded this, but I was obviously still working it out. XXOO Sloppy Joe.
