Drowning

Relax. Go limp, in fact. Your body’s natural buoyancy will carry you to the surface where you can breathe.

Take some time off. A day. Don’t go to class. Don’t go home. Walk among trees. Arrange pebbles in a line.

I wish I were there, to go walking with you. I had good friends on hand when I went through my own seas. One of the best things they did for me was push me over and tell me that my job for the next half hour was to breathe.

Can I look anything up for you, to make things less overwhelming? Would getting art from someone, or baked goods, remind you that you’re important to people out there?

Love, and apologies for reblogging publicly. I have a couple other people who might need to see this at some point.

 Afua Richardson Illustrates the Negro Speaks of Rivers by Langston Hughes for NPR

It’s awesome that my little fantroll chibis have been making the rounds again. I just finished printing and cutting a dozen of these little books, and the layout means I was left with a half-sheet of blank cardstock for each book I made.

What could be more perfect for chibis?

So, here are a dozen slots. PM me or email me at rahmakesart@gmail.com, pay me $10, and I will fill a 5.5x8.5 sheet of cardstock with the stupidest chibis of your choice.

Rejected sketch for a tattoo turned into a quick drawing for someone who cheered me up with a timely note.  Thank you!

It is gray, and cold, and I haven’t had enough work for months, and I lost the cat’s brush somewhere which is great because she’s incredibly fluffy and she’s shedding hard…

I am so great at sharing information. TMI all over the place, that is me. I actually do have little announcement cards partway made up! It’s kind of weird, though, because we’re not inviting anyone to the ceremony, we’re just sending announcements out afterwards, and then having a get-together in the summer to thank and spend time with people who’ve been in our lives. And there’ll probably be a web-based get-together, too, since a bunch of our friends are faaaar, like you. Anyway, we’re not sending out invitations or announcements til after the ceremony, but information kinda leaks out anyway?

But I have the greatest soon-to-be-spouse in the entire universe, I have cookies, and I got two really, really sweet encouraging letters through tumblr this year. One was from a writer I really respect and hope to meet someday, and today’s was from someone I occasionally reblog and had no idea I apparently inspired way back in the day. Pretty much nothing is better than learning that you inspired someone to make their own art.

Also, I’m going to see my family soon. Birth-family and friend-family. I hope they approve of Graham. I hope he approves of them.
