hey asheville, if you haven’t gotten a copy of As You Were yet, and you want one, i dropped some off at downtown books & news today! go buy them! they’re really good!

i have been leaving the house every day, taking hazel on long walks, being incredibly social and remembering how easy it is to do so when there are so many great people everywhere. swimming trips and coffee dates and punk shows, running into friends from four or six years ago and hugging and laughing like it was just yesterday.

but i am so grateful for the four difficult years i spent away from this city because they made me a much better, stronger person. i am finally ready to be home. i am finally home.

also v important: the light of my life.

i have to remember that even though my life right now is incredibly difficult and precarious in so many ways, that is because i am on the verge of amazing changes that will positively affect the rest of my life. and in the meantime, i am surrounded by so many great people that i literally can’t leave the house without running into at least four of them.

i am so glad to be back in asheville.

my most magical friend!

A Comic about Idapalooza

georgiacapra:

I went to Ida this year and made a comic about it for Mask Magazine! Thank u emilja for the hookup. You can see the first page on here but then there is a (very very cheap) paywall.

my amazing friend made a beautiful comic for a wonderful magazine, you should probably check it out!!
