Dear Ireland

Dear Ireland,
You are a green island of small minds and big opinions.
You cannot decide if you want to lead our global march towards a more accepting and loving future,
Or if you want to bury your head in an archaic system of oppression.
You showed the world your pride when you were the first country to vote in the name of love for all,
But you dishonour yourself as you still refuse to support my sisters, your mná, as we fight to reclaim our bodies.

London is always calling

Walking around London last weekend, I realised the specific peace that comes over my being while in the city.

The pages that warm me

Some of the best things in life are seasonal. Everyone will have a different set of comforts that change with each term of the year. I find satisfaction in perfumes curated to induce certain feelings, the foods that come naturally, the clothes that either hug or flow from body, and the books that I read. Today the focus is on the books I crave in the cooler months, these are books that I have reread a few times, but always when it was cold outside. These, are the pages that warm me.

To Everything There Is A Season

Spring is the first new season of each year. 
She arrives to the party with hands covered in gardening soil and hair dripping from April showers.
Her appearance, though, is easily forgiven because she brings with her boundless buds and flowers.
She freshens up the room and greets each guest with the promise of growth and renewal.
She is hope.
