One year and I still have only 5K words written of this long, long story that I started. I didn't talk about it when I started it because I had high hopes of actually finishing the thing. I don't know anymore. I shouldn't have slept on that one day. I was writing around 500 words everyday for 10 days and then, on the 11th, I went out somewhere, came home exhausted, didn't write and look, I am still sleeping. XD

Anyway, the book next to that piece of disappointment is very much whole as well as wholesome. This was one of the best books I read last year, that got me interested in reading more non-fiction. Somewhere, down in my feed, I have another post of my favourite quotes from it but I am too lazy to google and instagram is too unhelpful to let me put links here.
Thus, this is all you get - a juxtaposition of love and bloody indifference.

Legs, light, levity

and some more legs.

There is so much I want to talk about regarding the body standards women are subjected to but I don't because I am still unlearning them. I can run around with my chicken-like hairy legs near people I'm comfortable with, friends and family, even the market below my abode that I peep into daily. But I hesitate to a change of four clothes, just by thinking of wearing anything above my ankles with unshaven legs, when I need to be anywhere around people who are not my closests. Stupid and ironical. Why should I care about what strangers think of the hair on my body? I don't care about them. Why should I care about their thoughts? But as soon as logic tries to creep in, internalised, pretentious beauty standards barge through the door.

Bleach your skin until it is as white as your coloniser. Cut your belly until it is as straight as your normalised 'default' sexuality. Scrape your legs until they are as devoid of growth as a heath. Bleach, cut, scrape until you bleed. But don't talk about the bleeding. Do not tell people that it is there so that the barren land you want on my legs does not become contagious and reach my uterus. Do not even speak of it. You know, law of attraction.
God forbid, who will marry a barren woman?

There is so much, so much I want to talk about but won't because I am still unlearning my childhood, so much I am so ignorant about, so much more to learn, so much I can't begin to express, so much I shouldn't? But I can think and I do think. Sometimes, I think so much that I get a headache. Not kidding. (Continued in the comments)

Appreciating autumn is akin to listening for things unsaid and reading between the lines....you need to be open to the spaces.

I do so love a lone leaf.
I am always inclined to have a soft spot for these stragglers .
Possibly they were late bloomers, always considering themselves one step behind their peers.
Ah but once the noise of everyone looking the same and doing the same at the same time has gone, as fads and fancies do, once the gaggle has passed and been forgotten in it’s sameness....this is how to stand out from the crowd.
Be yourself in your own time...

The time of leaflessness is here.
The time when everything is seen for what it is.
Such spareness has vulnerability and strength written into every bare tree, each crooked fence freed from its skirt of roadside weeds.
A silence settles that is particular to the season.
But for all the silence, the lack of detail, there is abundance.
I see more of what is held in the spaces between and the song of every early morning bird seems to own a poignancy that summer never summons.

To the autumn sweetgum leaf
caught in the birch.

You never expected it,
did you?
