Goodbyes are only for those who love with their eyes. Because for those who love with heart and soul there is no such thing as separation.

I have this amazing apartment all to myself for several days cuz an amazing storytelling friend who I have literally spent maybe a half hour with my entire life trusted me to stay here while he’s in NYC. It’s nice to finally have some alone time after being around people constantly for the last two weeks and after being completely smothered for months. And at the end of the week I get to spend two nights at a Venice beech apartment because an outdoor education friend on Facebook asked her other outdoor ed friend if I could crash while he was In the field and we met up yesterday and he just gave me his keys. Yeah, he met me for 30 second and gave me the keys to his house and his bike! I’m so lucky to be a part of two kickass communities of trusting people trying to pursue their life’s passion who so gladly help out others doing the same thing. So blessed. Also, I really need a place to live so if you hear of anything, lemme know. I got plenty of money saved and having a nice home is actually important to me these days.

We woke up about 200 teenagers from Beverly Hills this morning by driving our giant cube truck into their tent area and blasting techno music and having a dance party. At 4:45am. It was amazing. They got to see the sunrise while on the river so hopefully they don’t hate us anymore.

So  I’m headed to the Colorado River with people I don’t know and am gonna get paid well to entertain famous peoples 15 year old’s from Hollywood this week. A much needed palet cleanser and a return to my grungy, shower-less roots. Whoo hoo! Natty life for-evuh. And no, I’m not going to Colorado. I’m going to the border of Mexico where they grow cotton and waste a shit ton of water on crops that shouldn’t be grown in the desert cuz the government is stupid. Bye!

A culture fixated on female thinness is not an obsession about female beauty, it is an obsession about female obedience. Dieting is the most potent political sedative in women’s history.

Be smaller. No, smaller than that. Be so small you stop existing.

Women hear it all the time from men. “You’re overreacting,” we tell them. “Don’t worry about it so much, you’re over-thinking it.” “Don’t be so sensitive.” “Don’t be crazy.” It’s a form of gaslighting — telling women that their feelings are just wrong, that they don’t have the right to feel the way that they do. Minimizing somebody else’s feelings is a way of controlling them. If they no longer trust their own feelings and instincts, they come to rely on someone else to tell them how they’re supposed to feel.
Oh man, I am finding all kinds of little gems during my LA packing process. This is from when I lived in my car with a bunch of outdoor education people and we were in Vegas. This was a shaving accident after all of is took our first showers following ten days of climbing nearby.  After a big, clean-shaven night out on the town, all 14 of us shared this this hotel room. Oh those were the days.
