if you could, would you walk with me?

I shape myself with handy labels but fail to paint myself whole. Perhaps I am simply fractured tidbits and snippits of trivia.

What may matter: I am 25. Lesbian. Feminist. Dianic. A sexual abuse survivor. Tattooed and pierced. Every adjective and many, many adverbs.

milkwood profile - diary
comments: She gives me major diary envy.
merricat profile - diary
comments: Where to start? Listens to Eddie from Ohio (yay), reads Carl Sagan (double yay) and is part of the activist ring, which makes her a really good person. And she writes well to boot. (triple yay).
orangina21 profile - diary
comments: Some kind of demi-goddess in human form: memorizes trees, reads Douglas Adams *and* Edwidge Danticat, and refuses to believe that college is all about beer.

comments: Beautiful site with clear and intuitive entries.
ramanda profile - diary
comments: Thoughts wandering across terrain that is familiar and foreign, like watching people on the train.
sheherezade profile - diary
comments: Her words weave together, folding onto itself, twisting and knotting, until I find myself tangled in the language and breathless from the experience.
sandandwater profile - diary
comments: jenne1017's other half; an addicting read in itself, absolutely sinful when read against jenne's...
shdwsoldier profile - diary
comments: Youth is not wasted on the young here, and age is something that will come, and what already exists is stark and beautiful, like a sapling against a snowstorm.

montparnasse profile - diary
comments: Our side of the Seine, indeed.
femmeproject profile - diary
comments: Women, writing. And the magic ensues.
rhyme profile - diary
comments: Entries like vodka shots: trenchant but so godly good.
