COME AGAIN WHEN YOU CAN’T STAY SO LONG - MANHATTAN, KANSAS

The great ice sheets passed over hills and valleys, carrying with them great loads of rock, gravel, sand, and clay which they ground and scraped from the surface. Rocks and boulders, frozen into the bottom of the glacier, scratched and grooved the solid rock beneath. As the ice sheets melted, the accumulated materials were left behind”

Kansas, A Guide To the Sunflower State (WPA, 1939)

Your Guide to Vermont, Tara Wray, originally hails from the sprawling flat lands of the Great Plains. After a long absence, she returned to visit her grandmother and produced an incredible photobook documenting their time together. 

It explores mortality, the idea of family, relationships that remain etched into a place, and cat cheese. We are simultaneously reminded of our own grandmothers and granted an intimate portrait of a unique woman.

We snapped up a copy several weeks ago and have found that it migrates from room to room. We leaf through pages on the living room couch and revisit images as we wait for the toast to burn. You are heartily encouraged to get your own book here: http://tarawray.bigcartel.com/

Speaking of Tara Wray… we, too, snagged a copy of this a few weeks ago and I was trying to put into words how much I enjoyed the book — her words, her photos — when I found American Guide’s great write-up. I mean…. “It explores mortality, the idea of family, relationships that remain etched into a place, and cat cheese. We are simultaneously reminded of our own grandmothers and granted an intimate portrait of a unique woman.” Don’t you want to read that?!

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

The truth is that mental illness can be deadly, and suicide is the end result of ongoing symptoms. Cancer kills when it spreads so much that the organs can’t function. Mental illness kills when the urge to die becomes louder than the urge to live.

IN THE END

for Lou

In the end, there are five bear cubs underneath your porch. You name them after U.S. Presidents. Taft dies of starvation. Carter disappears into the flowers. Hoover is carried away by hawks. Roosevelt digs into the ground to get away from ghosts. Lincoln grows up. Lincoln becomes a mother, with five cubs of her own. You are very proud of Lincoln. After Lincoln eats you, you adapt to your new life. You are still so proud of the bears you have given names to. Maybe they were dogs.

fightyourmisery:

Is it overbearing of me to text you more than once per year asking if I still have the correct phone number?

If you don’t respond, what is the maximum number of follow-up texts I can send within the month?

Does this number change if I email instead?

What if in the emails I mention that I have a bad feeling about the state of your health because I haven’t heard from you?

What is the maximum number of times I can contact you per year confirming your contact information? I’m just asking.

When I texted you about my party, you texted back, “Who is this?” and I didn’t respond and you didn’t come to my party.
