X marks the spot. A cross in ashes. This must be the place.

I'm peacing out for a lil bit, y'all! Taking a happy break from my phone and computer for a few days. Catch you lovers on the other side... ๐ŸŒธ๐Ÿ’–๐ŸŒธ Collage art by Penny Slinger

LOST PERSONS AREA: I've been thinking lately about how easy it is to let people we love fall through the cracks, especially when they're going through the hardest things. Sometimes we let ourselves fall through the cracks, when we're in that place. I think we've all been on both sides of it - so we know how isolating it can be. Pick up the phone, y'all. Whether to call someone you love, or to answer to that love that's calling you. I'm saying this to myself, from both sides. I often don't get it right - but I've been trying to be better at keeping connected to the people I love, and reaching out when I can. I find myself writing a lot of condolence cards lately - and contemplating the meaning of that word - which means "to suffer together". It means: I am with you in your pain. You are not alone. It means: I won't let you get lost. I am here. There's so much pain and fear in the world, and we live in a society that teaches us to run from it, to hide our suffering away in a dark cave where we can lick our wounds in peace. Because we're taught to be ashamed of our pain, of our woundedness - taught that we're weak if we're vulnerable. Brenรฉ Brown says, "Shame disconnects us, while vulnerability connects". Another wise woman told me the other day that the number best way to help someone who's struggling with depression, or suicidal thoughts - is to call and check in on them regularly. What would the world be like if we all made more time for each other like that? If we acknowledged each other's suffering and could just sit still and be with it, without thinking we had to fix it, or make it better? We usually can't. But we can reach out a hand, and not let ourselves, or the ones we love get lost along the way. ๐Ÿ–ค

Baby bad girl after school. Back in the day (when we had to use Wet & Wild 99 cent black eyeliner to make black lipstick). #worldgothday

Fifteen years old. I love how happy I am here, despite being soooo gothic! #worldgothday

Feral child! Alternative High School parking lot. #worldgothday

This is exactly how I feel today upon learning that one of my favorite creators of exquisite jewelry (Jess of Bloodmilk Jewels) who has become a treasured friend has named her newest piece for me: a set of ritual/meditation beads in silver with phantom quartz crystals (my favorite) and victorian eyes (a most sacred symbol for me). Go see it over at @bloodmilk ๐Ÿ–ค! What an honor - I am over the moon! And thanks to the lovely Megan Dodds for striking this perfect pose, being a fabulous lady date, and being so incredibly stunning. Swoooooon!

Wishing for the bajillionth time that scratch n' sniff technology was a thing so you could sniff this exquisite gardenia with me.

My favorite mural at The Carousel Lounge. It me, right? ๐ŸŒœ๐Ÿ๐ŸŒ›

Out of the very few photographs I have of my mother holding me (maybe only 2 or 3) this one is probably my favorite. Taken in front of the stone cottage in Lone Grove built for my great grandmother. My grandparents lived there too, and now my aunt and uncle do. My mother died in this house. I feel the spirits of my family in those stones.

Mother's Milk - from the Tantric Dakini Oracle. May we all be divinely nourished - today and always.
