I'm Laura. I ride trains, grow my food, and make my own wine.

Although I’m stoked to chill in Denver. I’m more excited to hang in Eugene with my close pals and drink coffee and wine and laugh and be ridiculous and have amazing conversations and cuddle cats and hug and just be overwhelmed with joy and whatnot. Although it bums me out that my three closest pals moved so far away I’m glad I get to see them atleast for a few days. It’s kind of neat that after all these years we can still pick up where we left off, we can still be as close as ever.
On a different note, fuck Amarillo, Texas.

I am sorry for filling you with beer and bad thoughts and then asking you why you shook. I am sorry for pinching you, for hitting you, for bruising the thin-skinned parts of you. I am sorry for the names I called you when we were fighting. You are not ugly. You are not useless. You would not be better off gone. I’m sorry for almost throwing you out into the street because my sadness was too much for me. I’m sorry for carving my fingernails into your thigh and then resenting the way people asked, “How’d that happen?” I’m sorry for plucking you and knicking your calves with drugstore razors. I’m sorry I let some people see you in the moonlight. They didn’t deserve to know the color of your hips like I do. I’m sorry for leaving you convulsing over a toilet bowl over some boy. I’m sorry I did not thank you for simply trying to take me where I wanted to go. I’m sorry I screamed at you to shrink, shrink, shrink when all you could do was grow. I’m sorry that this apology is ten years too late. I’m sorry that it will probably come again. I’m sorry that I am constantly learning how to love you, when you have never once doubted how you feel about me. I’m sorry.

An Apology to My Body | Lora Mathis (via lora-mathis)

The statement “property is theft” is one of anarchism’s most famous sayings. Indeed, it is no exaggeration to say that anyone who rejects this statement is not an anarchist. This maxim works in two related ways. Firstly, it recognises the fact that the earth and its resources, the common inheritance of all, have been monopolised by a few. Secondly, it argues that, as a consequence of this, those who own property exploit those who do not. This is because those who do not own have to pay or sell their labour to those who do own in order to get access to the resources they need to live and work.
