When I was “good enough”, though far from any fantasy, of her’s, of his, of anyone’s.  Of mine.  Of mine… I sat next to little sister, little daughter, little gotta few friends, in this same theatre in Toronto, watching Tori.  She did not perform this song that night, but she did last time I saw her.  It was hands down … Read More

love letter

I do not know if you can hear me right now. I can only take care of one person right now: me. You desperately need to do the same. I cannot take one more threat, one more beating, or one more crisis. I thought we were taking care of each other for many months. But the moment I am not … Read More

Psychology Tomorrow Magazine Pleads the Fifth on Slavery

jenniferlreimer...but could not address.

sunrise-from-airplane

Some so-called publications that forgot that employees usually require money – isn’t free work called slavery or something?  Psychology Tomorrow Magazine ends up pleading the fifth, in perfect legalese.  Psychology Tomorrow Magazine is using Kickstarter when it barely pays one person $1000/month (perhaps they can afford to take jobs for no or non-subsistence amounts of money, but I do not work … Read More

if it is not emboldened it might not make sense oh, You, I will slow down… why is April of all months the way that it always is.  Always a surprise.  Just like that cursed survival instinct that forces a person to put their feet on the ground every single morning before realizing that everything is gone or on fire … Read More

I Had A Dream Last Night (and it fit me like a glove)

jenniferlreimer...but could not address.

Sweetie, it’s okay to be angry, you know. Better to be angry than to turn it inwards and be depressed. I am one of the friends that’s never witnessed a You-tantrum and do find it hard to imagine in many ways… read my latest post re: my sister. Fair bit of anger coursing through my own veins today…. but I … Read More

Oh god, I’m sending out a message to five people at once. I feel like one of my religious relatives. They print off these letters en masse because they’re real breeders – grandchildren in the 50s – the digits, not the age group! However, I promise not to mention Jesus and I don’t have any kids to list off along … Read More

Love, I think I’ve figured a few things this week, in no small part because of our conversation…(we should talk more often!! powerful, even two people can be… ). I think my near death experiences, as well as my experience researching psychedelics (yes, reading a lot more about them than doing them….hehe, i’m serious!!), have opened my eyes to my … Read More

“…but could not address”: A Sneak Peek at a New Series Brought to You, by, Practice of Madness…

jenniferlreimer...but could not address., Academia is Nuts!

There are some really great lyrics, written by poet/songwriter Ani DiFranco. Lyrics that paint pictures that often pop up on their way, traveling through my head, and of these some recur. One that often does pop up is the lyrics to the song “marrow”, which includes the line, “what did I do with all those letters that I wrote to … Read More
