Since it is now October I can reveal that my Big Project this month is to launch a local zine in print called Take Care, focusing on ways to take care of yourself during illness, recovery and times of emotional stress. I’m hoping to release one a month for six months, and I’d like to release my first one in stores around the Brighton area by October 31st. I’ll also be curating a tumblr over at @takecarezine, which will mostly be reblogs of stuff I find on my research and internet travels, but that won’t be active until November.
I’ve been planning this for a couple of months, and I’m excited to learn about curating and publishing something myself, even if it is just something small like this. I hope it goes well - you’ll probably see an increase in self-care/wellbeing nerdery on my blog as I do more research. I need to learn how to give advice as well as what advice to give, so I’ll be doing a lot of reading as well as a lot of writing. If anybody has a topic they think I should cover, or even a contribution you’d like to make (even those of you across the pond), please let me know - it can be an article about your experiences, an introduction to your favourite hobby, a recipe for your favourite cake/tea/soap, or anything that makes you feel good. All advice is also welcome, just drop me an ask.
So, fingers crossed, this time next month I’ll be releasing the first issue!
When I was trying to quit smoking
and we drank white wine from Mason jars,
you called my freckles cocoa powder
and I called your green eyes
I am learning how to be a grown-up
who pays bills, cooks her own meals,
and doesn’t cry at words like
I think I just want to be friends.
The truth is this:
Love is an organic thing.
It rots and softens.
