    I learned a long time ago that there’s nobody up there pulling me by puppetstrings through a lifetime of abuse, no one to blame for the slurs and curses that ask kindly for my suicide. This body isn’t a temple. It’s a cage. A prison. We are so much more than a sum of our parts and t...

    If you’re looking for quiet, nature is not for you. It’s busy, and loud, and teeming with life in every direction, and god is it beautiful. We have a tendency to drown out our surroundings with noises we deem more important than bird- song. If you walk through the woods with headp...
