The peaches I bought are slowly rotting on the sideboard – a grey fluff blankets them like a LOL furry pet doll.

Iโ€™m slipping into the role nicely. Like a slim ladyโ€™s finger, a hand sliding into a tight leather glove. New kid.

Let sincerity spill out over the edges.
The everyday activities that can be transported / weighted into time laden – anonymous lives.
Made from discards – repurposed to objects I want.

Motherhood – where the world loses its bearings, all boundaries dissolve and the earth cracks and fissures.
Loosen your tongue, dissolve the boundaries, unclench your jaw.
A messy, sticky, visceral pleasure of form.
We need to show a sincere authentic love and connect with this thing called humanity.
Rest as revolution.
Care for each other.
