Find it bizarre/hypocritical/confusing that evangelicals are still so supportive of Donald J

Find it bizarre/hypocritical/confusing that evangelicals are still so supportive of Donald J. Trump? This quote explains a lot: "We weren't looking for a husband. We were looking for a bodyguard."

Good piece!, 'Neil himself would be the most intimidating and effective rightwing polemicist in Britain if he was freed from the BBC

Good piece!
'Neil himself would be the most intimidating and effective rightwing polemicist in Britain if he was freed from the BBC. But the fact that somebody as stridently leftwing as he is rightwing would never be appointed to such a position is indicative of how our media operate.'

Well said Raoul Martinez!
'The government has been caught in yet another lie, and Corbyn's judgement — for which he was lambasted by the media and some of his own MPs — has once again been vindicated.'

We were told we had weeks & have been given months

We were told we had weeks & have been given months. Sometimes I wonder if this would have been easier if we had gone into our 20wk appnt & he hadn’t had a heartbeat. The intense pain would have been instant instead of so drawn out but if that had been our story, he would have died w/o a name. We had been so preoccupied up until that point. Sometimes it was easy to forget I was even pregnant since we were chasing Evy around. Everything about our life changed that week. James became more than a 2nd pregnancy, he became a part of our family. His name is now spoken everyday in our home, in our prayers, & in my journal. Evy points to my belly & says “BABBYYY” which is both so sweet & also heartbreaking bc she will keep doing that once I’m not pregnant anymore. However, the videos we have of her loving her brother will mean so much to her one day. We’ve realized that there are two ways to look at our situation. We can either be angry that our baby’s prognosis is leading to no life outside of me or we can realize that this baby has been given SO MUCH LIFE. The beginning of our baby’s life started back in Oct. At the cellular level, God set him apart. His life & loving him looks nothing like we imagined but it has taught us so much about how the father loves us. Some days when I’m the most emotionally & physically weary, I think “what is in this for me?!” I don’t get baby snuggles or the joy of nursing or all of the beautiful seasons that come w/ a new child. All I have is pain. My hips hurt, my body is struggling to carry a baby who is already measuring full term at almost 31 weeks, my eyes are constantly puffy from the tears.... & yet in the midst of being in that pit, the Lord pulls me out & reminds me of the kind of love He has for us. What does He get from us? What’s in it for Him? His love is completely unconditional & It’s the most beautiful kind of love. I will never fully understand how to love like that but loving this sweet baby inside of me has given me a deeper understanding of what it means to simply love w/o expectations. Every day I am so thankful that I was chosen to be his momma. He’s changed me (& many others) in the most beautiful way.

I’ll be 30wks on Tues if James continues to fight through this weekend

I’ll be 30wks on Tues if James continues to fight through this weekend. We haven’t shared a lot about his condition & that’s simply because there is a lot to share & it’s complicated. But ultimately, the build up of Ascites in his abdomen (fluid) is so great that it has collapsed several organs & will eventually put too much pressure on his heart. The fluid is one of many issues that he’s struggling w/ & the underlying cause of all of it can be explained by the fact that he has Downs. His lungs never had a chance to form & his heart has been showing signs of strain since his 20 wk ultrasound. He has almost no amniotic fluid left, he’s incredibly swollen all over & he’s also breech (which has lead us into hard delivery conversations since this has lasted a month longer than anyone anticipated). Despite all of that, his heart just keeps pumping. Evy’s cord was huge & we’re assuming his is too because he still has good flow from me & that’s another reason he can still hang on. The doctor told me “I know it’s bittersweet, but he’s still hanging in there because he has a really great connection to his mom.” ? I have delivered a perfectly healthy baby already & I am so thankful... but never in my life have I been so amazed at the miracle of perfect pregnancies than right now. I had diabetes with Evy & sure, she had hip dysplasia that seemed like that end of the world at the time... but this experience has made me look at Evy in disbelief. How can I have one baby who is so healthy and one who doesn’t stand a chance at life outside of me? If the Lord gives us other children after surviving this I will never ever take a normal ultrasound for granted. It’s such a gift from God to have a healthy pregnancy.... & yet it’s also a gift to be carrying a dying baby simply because God is asking us to. It’s the hardest act of obedience I have ever encountered. It seems pointless some days. It seems cruel & impossible other days. The ending & timing of this is very uncertain but all we know today is that we’re supposed to keep going, that God is still good, and that there is purpose in this sweet baby’s life.

Nothing about this is going how we assumed it would go

Nothing about this is going how we assumed it would go. I’m still pregnant but it’s not because he’s getting better... it’s because he’s such a fighter. The issue is that while he keeps fighting, his body keeps failing. I literally can’t fit all of his issues into one Instagram post. There aren’t enough characters allowed for that.... but I can share that he’s so swollen that his little organs are floating around in a pool of fluid that should never be collecting in a baby’s abdomen. It’s hard to watch each week on an ultrasound. I love seeing him on the screen because he’s my baby and I feel like it’s our job as parents to check on him as much as we can.... but it’s also heartbreaking to see your child slowly getting closer to death and yet you’ve never officially “met” him. It’s hard to stay positive when you’re at the point where you’re just trying to survive each day. I think about what life feels like right now and I just know that When I look back years from now, I won’t understand how I survived this. I feel literally crazy some days. Some days I’m physically in pain. Some days I can feel a swell of emotions coming on & I panic because I need to run away & sob privately. I’m close to the size I was with Evy near the end of my pregnancy with her and yet I’m only 27 weeks. There is so much going wrong inside of me and just that fact alone is hard to understand and process. It can be scary to think about..and the more swollen he becomes, the more swollen I feel. It’s all very messy. I go to bed every night and think “I can’t believe I made it through another day”... and I wake up every morning in disbelief that I have to start over again.... but night after night, no matter how much I cry to Michael and say “I can’t do this anymore!!”..... I do.... & that’s because I know my God hasn’t forgotten about me. It may feel like it some days.... but He hasn’t. I know he hasn’t. Because it’s 7pm and the sun is setting and once again, I survived another day living in the worst reality. God is still good to me... and I guess I’ll look back at this season of my life and I’ll know that the miracle of all of this is that I survived ... and my baby is healed in heaven. ❤️

When I write my poetry it comes often from a place of longing

When I write my poetry it comes often from a place of longing. My book, Sex and God, really brought this to light for me. When I steped back from those two subject matters (and the spaces where they overlap) I realised that what drives my need to create is a deep longing for connection.
Perhaps it is the ultimate wounding. The severing from the mother, the womb, the expulsion out and the cutting away from the cord of life and connection, that leaves us with this insatiable desire to find connection...or perhaps that is just our fate. To be consistently hungering to feel united with something... Other humans, a lover, a concept, God, art, music, substances or anything else. .
When I approach my performance and my public speaking it is this truth which I hold on to. No matter how afraid I feel, how seperate from the audience or their demographic... I know that the ultimate thing we all hunger for is connection. If I can offer that, then I have done my work.

I took this shot when exploring possible album covers last year and then scared myself by how intimate it was

I took this shot when exploring possible album covers last year and then scared myself by how intimate it was. .
.
This morning I walked into my lounge to find two dear friends making love. They didn't stop, I didn't scream and run away blushing. I picked up my keys and walked out happy in my heart to have such sex positive friends who trust me and are comfortable enough to share that space with me.
There is so much taboo around sexuality, the amount of times I have lived in shared houses and had flat mates "walk in" on me naked and react in the way I described above is uncountable. I would follow them out through the house (usually wraped in a towel out of tenderness for them) and explain they had done nothing wrong and it was completely OK. .
.
These days housemate searches come with a "must be very comfortable with nudity" clause. .
.
Our bodies are sacred, beautiful. If you want to hold it silent and quiet for only tender moments.. There is beauty in that. But there is no shame in being fully in your body around those closest to you and beyond. As long as everyone is in consent and boundaries are clear then people LOVE yourselves! Love each other! .
.
Women. Be wild. Be seen. Be sexy. Be humble. Be fierce. Be quiet. Be gentle. Be ferocious.
Be what ever you need in the moment... But be YOU. .

Byron Bay/Northern Rivers opportunity...

These sessions are transformative and we work on the core issues behind your stage presence. This is NOT techniques on how to look confident, this is process and enquiry in how to be fully yourself no matter how many people are watching.

"You can't buy, achieve or date serenity and peace of mind

"You can't buy, achieve or date serenity and peace of mind. This is the most horrible truth, and I so resent it. But it's an inside job."
Many of us try to outsource our peace of mind...
Someone or something else can take care of it for us.
When I have...
If I had...
When we are...
Your experience moment to moment matters so much.
Don't be reliant on anything or anyone outside of you for this.
That is not self-love.
Self-love is facing the difficulty in this moment, to better serve our future self.
Is it easy? NO. Not at all.
Is it something we learn as we grow up? No.
Is it essential that we learn as adults? Yes, if we want to experience peace, love, and joy... on OUR terms... we need to take responsibility.
Love, peace and joy... is an inside job <3
