Menstrual cycles don’t always line up with the moon, but you could work this kind of magic with fertility cycles too: End of bleeding through close of ovulation for bringing things to life, and post-ovulation through bleeding time for removing blockages.

Go on, go on down,
      bring the man up …
                          In here, Mr. Wilde.
This room is not such a ruin as it seems:
                          I find most things I search for
without much trouble—

In 1882, Walt Whitman and Oscar Wilde spent an afternoon together. They had some homemade elderberry wine and talked about how to be famous. Above is Richard Howard’s imaginary account of the meeting, from his poem “Wildflowers.”

I had to leave because
my heart is all made of real metal,
and there are too many unreal things here.


Today I took this picture of my lovely girl Marta while she was reading Baudelaire.

More than anything, I am grateful that I know, now, what to do with my emotions.

“Lie down and look up at the ceiling and breathe with those curiously fragile lungs of yours and remind yourself: Don’t worry. Don’t worry. All is as it was meant to be. It was meant to be lonely and terrifying and unfair and heaving. Don’t worry.”

“It is very true what is said about self love, it gets you a lot further than self-hate and the less you give a fuck about what people think the happier you’ll be. Don’t worry, even though it doesn’t seem like it right now, you will find that thing you love to do, that thing that gives you purpose that you are great at; you will find a person who will love you, who will treat you with the respect you deserve; you will learn to love yourself; you will be able to rise from the ashes of your depression; you can change your life. Be you, unafraid and unashamed. You are so much more capable than you realize.”
