has it really been that long since i've posted here?
i've been busy sludging through the sweet underbelly of the stereotypical american lifestyle. there are several couches with the expanding indentation of my ass. there are vibram five-fingers laying forlorn in the depths of some bag, somewhere. there are foodlike package shells littering the landscape of this past month.
and there is the pseudo-food that has become a part of me. the taste of all that sweetness, all that agricultural pornucopia still coating my digestive lining. the cloying desserts, the puffy, margarine soaked giant pretzels, the sparkle of msg on hot fries....all that is flowing (okay, not flowing really, more like roiling) through my system.
i feel like hammered shit. quite frankly, i feel poisoned. sickened. and like something unnatural.
this blog was my lifeline, in a way. the accountability to something.
of course, i have my excuses. i've been without steady living space for a long time. my depression pokes it's colossal head up through the floorboards more frequently. i was robbed so my beloved (beloved????) computer is in the hands of a thief. i am homesick for something that no longer exists. and, i feel isolated.
it is a chicken and egg thing. what happened first? did i stop living primally so all these factors popped up or did all these things rear up and then i stopped living primally?
either way, it's time to stop the insanity.
i am dancing with different aspects of it all right now. getting the new cave set up in a VERY minimalist way. (i got rid of half my stuff and it's still too much...where did all this shite COME FROM?) i'm slowly organizing my pantry and fridge to have all the foods that my body recognizes readily available. i am working on a loose routine that allows me to meet all the modern responsibilities while giving me the time to live with as much freedom as my wild self needs.
i am the type of person that wants to wake up in the morning and have the perfect day after living in chaos the day before. but, creating a life takes work. scratch that word work....it's a weird connotation. creating a life takes boldness, imagination, and playfulness. and of all the things that make me who i am, those three things i have in excess.
