sierraodessa I've always struggled with making people into memories. I don't understand how the space where your hands used to be is only safe for ghosts these days.
I've been trying to allow each new moon blur your edges, but my fingers insist on memorializing you in ink.

sierraodessa Maybe we never forget the freedom of our first solo drive and maybe we spend our whole lives trying to recreate that feeling in as many ways as we possibly can.
I've stumbled upon those moments: like that night on top of the tallest building we could find, or that time we ran home in a rainstorm that morphed the streets into canals.

sierraodessa I think everything in life is art. What you do, how you dress, the way you love someone and how you talk. Your smile and your personality, what you believe in and all your dreams. The way you drink your tea, how you decorate your home, or party, your grocery list, the food you make, how your writing looks and the way you feel. Life is art. 1w

sierraodessa "She was a woman with a broom or a dustpan or a washrag or a mixing spoon in her hand. You saw her cutting pie crust in the morning, humming to it, or you saw her setting out the baked pies at noon or taking them in, cool, at dusk. She rang porcelain cups like a Swiss bell ringer to their place. She made mirrors of every window, to catch the sun. She strolled but twice through any garden, trowel in hand, and the flowers raised their quivering fires upon the warm air in her wake." 1w
