a novel by me

Science, writing, art, baguettes, reading, really loud music, and cooking. Fan of: lava cakes, feminism, Adobe InDesign, and the Oxford comma.

As the debate on same-sex marriage continues in Western nations, including the United States, Thailand could become the first country in Asia to legalize gay marriage. Thailand is known for its liberal acceptance of sexuality, but the draft same-sex marriage law is not without controversy. This is a traditional Thai wedding, except there is no groom. There are two brides. This ceremony is only symbolic because Thailand, like all of Asia, does not recognize same sex marriage. But a draft law later this year could change that and make Thailand the first Asian nation to legalize gay marriage. Nonetheless, Arisa Thanommek and her partner Pacharee Hungsabut say they were not interested in waiting. “We…we [will] not wait. Because we [are] ready.  Our family is ready,” she said

I noticed that women of color are one of the biggest spearheads of recognizing LGBTQ relationships. Happy Pride Month to Thailand!

Sometimes recovery is waking up early to write in coffee shops and practicing yoga and eating lots of fruit and chocolate and sometimes it’s staying in bed all day and hiding from the world until you can stop crying. All of this is ok. What’s important is that you take care of yourself no matter what kind of day you’re having.

18-Year-Old Photographer’s Spectacular Conceptual Self-Portraits,.Laura Williams

18-year-old Laura Williams joins the ranks of fellow young, extremely talented photographers such as Alex Stoddard and Kyle Thompson in creating spectacularly surreal and expressive self-portraits. The Cambridge, England native’s photograph entitled Invisible recently went viral, with over 800,000 views on Flickr alone. The photo depicts Williams sitting on the grass with a piercing look in her eyes, holding a mirror that conceals her body while reflecting the empty area surrounding her.

Many of Williams’ photos involve concepts of concealment and hiding, as parts of the body and face are obscured by smoke, mirrors, and masks. “I like the idea of creating an image that’s perhaps a little less obvious, like an illusion,” she explains, “one that really intrigues the viewer and tries to trick the eye.” Her highly conceptual works embody this idea, inviting the viewer to closely examine every detail in the shot in an effort to learn the story behind each evocative image.

don’t invade russia in the winter

her mood swings are triumphant

i think to show that she can fill up the room

pendulum swings and she is all-encompassing

story after story and tight-pinched lips and loud laughs

maniacal but tender, sweet but rough all the same

I think she is Minerva incarnate

she is malicious a biting edge but she is also sonorous, rich

heavy weighted with her mind if she dropped beneath the surface of the ocean

she would sink to the seafloor and become a mermaid

her intelligence drags her underneath the confusing clips and turns of table talk and coffee shop banter; how difficult is it to be normal? they ask

she was never very good at the hello goodbye how are you thank you so nice to see you how are the kids

she is meant for the words that skydive, that jump off of cliffs, that race along the freeway at 2 a.m. the feelings that twist and burn your insides and the heart race ba-dum-da-dum

she destroys you but coaxes the pieces back together

and

i could not would not be slaughtered by anyone else

do NOT invade russia in winter

and shut up and LISTEN

ba-dum-da-dum

ba-dum-da-dum

ba-ba-dum-da

dum-da

da-da-
