Little Boxes

People are like little boxes, filled with beautiful things, ugly rotten slime, broken shiny pieces, sharp edges, snippets of songs and little lose screws that nobody knows what they go to, all tucked away in a maze of folded and crumple tissue paper.  There’s a certain amount of bubble wrap in there as well.  I […]

Thoughts On Consumption

There have been an odd series of events in my life that have dovetailed with each other quite nicely.  One is my reading Modest Wellness, a blog by Sarah, who writes about mental health, veganism and other topics with such an easy voice that I feel as though we’re having a conversation over coffee rather […]
