Regram from @bigholehnw - dual review of Captagon and Mountain Head: “Having accidentally left Mountainhead at work on Friday, I decided to reread Captagon by Philip Best (I had a bit too much to drink during my first reading, so it didn’t really count for much, as enjoyable an experience as it was). Then went and retrieved Mountainhead on Saturday and finished it between last night and this morning. Captagon, with its myriad perspectives on the chaos, violence, stupidity and entropic forces governing and engulfing everything, is a bleak as hell, fast-paced, fractured cruise through what may be a possible dystopian near-future but which actually reads more like an only slightly caricatured and exaggerated version of our increasingly conflict-ravaged present times. Harsh reading, but excellent. Mountainhead, on the other hand, while not exactly what I would call “happy reading,” was a fascinating and immersive mixture of intense travelogue, self-discovery via unflinching self-scrutiny and feats of physical endurance, and meditations on prostitution and lifelong sexual obsession. The writing itself is gorgeous, vivid and lush, full of surprising poetry. ...I recommend both of these very highly to adventurous readers who don’t mind a little darkness and discomfort.” . . . #newjuche #mountainhead #ninebandedbooks #captagon #philipbest #amphetaminesulphate

Friendships with nothing but butchering comedy and bad drama, never a dull moment with you. I’ll miss your DT stories and tragic drama. The fuck, I just realised that this our last picture together. I am super proud of you and your new beginning. Put everyone to death in Guwahati and make me a proud mama and remember what I said, just a year ❤️ Until next time #friends #memoir #vscocam #missyoualready

I read on my phone and that’s probably the main reason I ever actually finish books. I love memoirs and recently finished both of these. . Educated by was riveting to me - I knew nothing about it except that all my favorite bloggers were raving about it. If you’re going to check it out, don’t google or research it first, makes for such a good read. . I read Hunger by @roxanegay74 after hearing about it on @dearsugars and wow. It was tough to get through at points, but such a vulnerable and unfiltered view of how society regards a person’s weight. . Always looking for recommendations of what y’all are enjoying 📚. . . . . . . #bookclub #bookstagram #bookshelf #summerreading #memoir #roxanegay #bookworm #librarybooks #momlife

Self-portrait. I took this about a year ago in a hotel room somewhere...can’t remember where. Loneliness was my brother that night as he sometimes is. I do remember that. Posting this here today as a beginning - a new series telling my story through words and images. Time does heal old wounds but not all of them. Sometimes it takes work and searching the deep dark places to find healing. I’m still in that process. Maybe just beginning it really, but that’s okay. I’m not on the clock with this. It can take as long as it needs and it’s actually much better now than it was. I’m seeing the light at the end of the tunnel but hoping it isn’t a train. I know others have been there and I’m sharing this for them. As I tell this story I’ll use this hash tag, #theroadlestravels. Follow along and share if you find it helpful. Thanks.

The rest of On Redemption’s chapters has Kentucky as my home base. I honestly did not plan on still being here seven years later. But as cheesy as it is - God had other plans and I’m finally okay with that. And it’s been a hard, good and strangely healing seven years. Just know, these chapters were the hardest to write and edit once more. First, it involves people I still have face-to-face interactions with. I want to write about these folks with both respect and dignity. To be honest, I’m surprised some of them walked with me this far. Second, I face the reality within my own story. I have to be bold because wounds have been healed. I know this, so I will proclaim it. And when I share, please note some of this took close to twenty years to work through. The journey isn’t always easy, but it is worth it. Third, the supernatural is real and not to be taken lightly. It could be ignored, but it doesn’t make it less real. Ignorance isn’t bliss. Like the blessing and cursing rice I did months ago. If rice can turn to mold due to the power of words - I fully recognize the spiritual world is alive and warring over us. And these last chapters are full of this. Thank you to everyone who has read so far. I look forward to sharing these final chapters with you.

Fast, conversational, funny, and heartbreaking all at once. | Completed 2018.06.24

INSTAHEALING: LEARN THE ART OF CONTEMPLATIVE CONTENT AT THE COMPLETION LAB IN ATX JULY 9-11! Day 24, 30-day #throatsong challenge. Inspired by my bold, beautiful + brave Clients, by the sultry summer air in Austin + fireflies! + by this poem by Rumi: “Let your throat-song be clear and strong enough to make an emperor fall full-length, suppliant, at the door.” I struggled for years with completion. With creative projects, with finances, with relationships, with stuff. Way after a relationship was done, I’d hold on tight with pit bull jaws, + ignore the emotional drain. I once spent 4 months writing a short story for $100. I agonized over every word, when I had no gas in my truck tank + nothing in my fridge except a coconut. I’d drag out debt until it weighed me down like an albatross around my neck. Then stuff. I may not have been a hoarder, but I collected. I cluttered. Only years later when I left my beloved longtime home in Topanga did I realize my attachment was about unresolved grief. We all have obstacles to completion. The trick is to become aware, then to accept, + finally to take action. So often we skip the acceptance step. Yet without acceptance, completion stays out of reach. Then I discovered the power of little completions. Think of them as boosts for your longer projects. Let alone ways to connect with audience + see what lands.You do this every time you post on Instagram. You have the power to publish. To share your insights. To connect. There is an art to contemplative content. For years now, I’ve created monthly Instagram challenges for my clients to discipline their creativity, regain confidence in their writing, or heal their fear of being seen. We are distracted. Our focus fragmented. We are Hungry Ghosts, eager for depth. Intimacy. When you master the art of contemplative content, you connect with the people who are waiting for your voice. Your soulful insights. Join us July 9-11 in Austin for the powerful 2-Day Completion Lab Retreat to gain a new level of immediate connection thru content with the people who want to learn from + work with you. The new breed of leaders will master deep focus + intimate storytelling. Let it be you!

"What kind of society uses medicine as a weapon, keeps it from people needing to heal, all the while continuing to develop the drugs America's prisons use to execute people?... More mentally ill people in our nation's prisons than in all of our psychiatric hospitals -combined?! Human beings charged with all manor of terrible-sounding crimes -terrorism!- like my brother has been. What kind of society do we live in?" #nowreading #whentheycallyouaterrorist a #blacklivesmatter #memoir

Okay so I’ve really been into essays lately and I don’t know why! I usually read fiction and I’m truly enjoying this little detour. All that I can say for sure is that this is the book that caused my detour. @thebloggess amazes with her impeccable talent to make horrid events seem like such fun or at least manageable. I read it on ebook first and just purchased a paper copy because I much prefer the tactile nature of a book.
