Little V a g r a n c i e s

27. Artist. Bodyworker. Backpacker. Urban Homesteader. Chicago.

When I was in high school (which was a very long time ago) a witch who taught one of my humanities courses gave me this totem to carry in my pocket to help me in times of great change. I carried her on me today, and experienced all of the emotions as I closed a chapter on my life.

I am looking forward to bigger and better things, to being a bigger and better person, and being myself- most of all.

Three more hours

One more waltz, and that’s all.

UNICEF Report On Female Genital Mutilation Holds Hope And Woe

Its 2014, people. I am amazed and appalled.

Wednesday

Eating beans and greens in my lunch that I grew myself, is quite fantastic.

Next time, though, I’ll build a better trellis.

I woke up early this morning, and have been thinking ever since, about how this has been such a strange summer, the strangest I remember- and I don’t mean the weather.

Make a Biogas Generator to Produce Your Own Natural Gas
For food waste, chop material into 1-inch or smaller bits. The author set up a chopping station in his garden using an old sink and garbage disposal attached to an extension cord. Other options include using a blender or chipper-shredder.

How to Make your own Green Powder

Can we just take a moment

To send prayers and thoughts towards an end of rage and destruction and death

This has to stop

DEATH WIZARD

DEATH WIZARD

(via naturepunk)

Eat food from farmers markets.
Drink good tea each morning.
Read books that make you feel.
Paint, even if you’re awful.
Write, even when you have nothing to say.
Sit in the fresh air outside.
Go on hikes.
Swim in lakes and wade in streams.
Sleep as long as you need.
Work hard at what you love.
Work hard at what you hate.

Love unconditionally and wholeheartedly.

This is seriously exactly what I think the key to happiness is and I’m trying to live by it.
