I have a crip bodymind. I am getting better at understanding it and loving it. Apart from that, I am still becoming myself.

This website is my mental health journal; here I talk of my explorations, (mis)adventures and joys, I document my becoming and a bunch of things I would like to remember about life.

What I would have done to have heard a story like mine. Not for blame. Not for reputation, not for money, not for power. But to feel less alone. To feel connected.

“Do you know why we have the sunflowers? It’s not because Vincent van Gogh suffered. It’s because Vincent van Gogh had a brother who loved him. Through all the pain, he had a tether, a connection to the world.”
