It takes only very subtle medicine to decrease rigid walls. Even the very of idea of it may be enough, as a matter of fact. Once consciousness is adjusted so that sensitivity to your own process actually observes these things [boundaries] and considers them undesirable, they automatically begin to disappear under the self-created action of one’s own psyche.
After all, nature is playing a part, and mathematical necessity reveals itself in the Milky Way, the sandy beach, and the human psyche as well. There’s a tendency toward help. These diseases of rigid barriers, like other diseases, exist primarily in the rejection of the cure, and the cure can be found within.

I’ll stop being lame and only posting text while simultaneously slacking on photos, but I just found out that for my aunt and uncle’s 30th anniversary party (2 days on their property with food and family and dorky board games) THEY ARE HIRING A BLUEGRASS BAND and we are all camping together and
yes yes yes yes
I dreamt you had my handwriting locked in your fingertips too,
That there you had me matched: broken toes around my boundaries.
And later I dreamt of an ice cream bar, melting flakes of chocolate shell
Passed back and forth between the palms of our hands, kneading in its ooze.
I swear I saw four of us last night, but the night before just two.
I swear I saw us pillaging walls, then scurrying through our fort for rest.
Surely I wrote home of this, before I think I knew
Of a lightning storm, an olive grove, commanding stars to shoot.
