guiseofgentlewords:

my father told me once to never date anyone who talks smoothly around you from the start because if someone likes you they should be a little nervous and honestly i think that’s some of the best advice anyone has ever given me

Maybe
I am lonely. It is hard
to know. It could be
hidden in familiarity.

When I say I’m sad that you’re leaving, I don’t want to hear an explanation about someone else’s needs. I want you to hug me, kiss me, tell me you love me and that you aren’t running from me.

Wife.

Take note. That’s how its done. That is how you ask for the reassurance you want. That is how you get it too. Sometimes you may not know what you want until after someone tries something and its wrong. But try not to leave a partner alone to figure it out.

And yes sadness is OK, accept it, sit with it in unease.

Muscle Memory

ink-splotch:

My body learned my grandmother’s stairs young.
I can take them two at a time now
in pitch dark
on a moonless night
and never stub a toe.

The heart is a muscle too.
It learns. It does not forget.

I asked Yuri, “How do I do this? How do I live a political life with motherhood?” I was exhausted, but Yuri made it seem so easy.

“This,” she said, gesturing to my daughter in her lap, “is what you do. You just take your daughter everywhere, like I did with my kids – protests, rallies, long late-night planning meetings. We take our children with us and they grow up to be good people, people who care about the community. And she will learn what kind of woman her mother is by watching you work in the movement.”

Brave Thing →

five—a—day:

She says it’s a brave thing, being loved by you. I don’t ask why. I kiss her on her head for her courage. I gold-star her abdomen with my mouth. I leave one hand inside her. Some days, she gets solemn. Some days, she turns the radio off in the kitchen just as I’m getting into a rhythm making…

blurryoutoffocus asked me to find out some info about someone and gave me a first name, summer job, hair color, and school to go off of. I can now tell you where he was born, his twitter and fb info, what sports he played in what high school, what orgs he’s involved with at school, and what he was for Halloween for the last three years.

that took me 5 minutes.

I may have a problem.

Oh my goodness you’re an amazingly talented individual. Amazing.

There are a thousand reasons I love the Circle of Magic and one of them is that Briar tried to cover up his prison tattoos with tattoos of vines, and he used plant-based dye and filched a sewing needle from Sandry’s mage kit.

Powerful teenagers not thinking things through, the series.
