we made ourselves an altar




first of all, a little bit of explanation about my previous post. due to the camera-losing in new york city, the only pictures that i took are on my phone. unfortunately this means i don't have pictures of my favorite part, our hotel room on the top floor of a hotel in united nations plaza. i will have my camera for my trip to boston and providence in two weeks.

'bioluminescence' was a word that was used several times in the environmental film that i saw about deep-sea fish. they used it for when a fish lights up under water, and it was one of the best words i've heard in a long time. when fish glow like a lite-brite (do you remember that toy? where you put the neon pieces of plastic into the board so the light could go through them?) they are bioluminescent. i really like this idea of contained light. like a firefly.





or like this! a sun jar!

i won second place in a writing contest at u of i! i was pretty excited about this, and a few people have asked me if they could read what i wrote. i will put it in the next post.

i have been pretty exhausted the past few days, and i keep thinking about the idea of addiction, and how someone becomes mentally and physically dependent on something. on a lighter note, i've also been thinking about summer, and having adventures when it gets warmer out. i will write more about this when i have had a chance to develop the idea past what i have now, which is verspertine and really only a secluded lake in the middle of the summer, and the idea that anything could be true, could be ours. a time that i can only confront in a way that creates internal distance.
