Am so grateful for this thoughtful Xmas present from @cristinamdamico and @kashandblue. Can’t wait to start learning the @personalspaceatx and get back in touch with my magic in time for the solstice 🧙♀️🎄🌚🔮
Was kind of dreading doing this and seeing nothing but photos taken after my dad passed away. Maybe it was the algorithm or maybe it was just plain magic, but it’s so nice to see some fun times and big milestones: like having my first essay published in a magazine, meeting Roxane Gay, my 32nd birthday, and my solo travels in the American South. . . I’m feeling super ready to say goodbye to 2017 and am hoping that 2018 will be a bit more gentle to us all 💖
Some days you just feel really cute and these days that hasn’t happened all that often. Feeling good feels pretty conflicted because somehow I feel like the appropriate thing is to feel sad and awful all the time. Because then you’re properly grieving, right? I’m trying to tell myself that it’s okay to have moments where I feel good and that the grief hasn’t vanished just because I don’t feel like crying every single moment. So here’s a little selfie to document my attempt to hold space for all the feelings
Gonna miss this sweet angel of a human. Staying in their boy cave these last four days has truly been magical. I spent most of my train ride to MTL covertly crying. The last two days I’ve woken up with a much lighter heart. ⠀ ⠀ Lately I’ve been feeling like I’ve lost my magic. That’s grief for you. But over the last few days, this human has affirmed the shit out of my existence and allowed me to tap into some of the things that make me feel like magic, like making and eating food with another person, reading my tarot cards, helping me paint tiny wooden beads, and taking me to Value Village. These are all such small and mundane things, but they mean the world.⠀ ⠀ @ceelavery, you are such a special creature. The fact that you came into my life 6 months ago has me feeling #blessed (also please note how we are making kinda the same face here) 💖
@cee.lavery and I went to Value Village and had our identities affirmed in such real ways.
Cee: You have a perfect nose! ⠀ ⠀ [5 mins pass]⠀ ⠀ Margeaux: Did you just give me a puppy nose? ⠀ ⠀ Cee: YEAH! . . . 🎨: @cee.lavery
A sweet human by the name of @cee.lavery has been wining and dining me since Monday and I’m so grateful for all of their witty one-liners that should really be on t-shirts, their high-level knowledge of my natal chart, and their ability to let me pour out all of my feelings. 💖💖💖💖🦄🦄🦄🦄
MTL is treating me well. Both of my social plans for today fell through and so I’m taking some much needed solo time including this cute lunch and coffee and some reading to inspire me.
Went into @drawnandquarterly and this happened.
This may be the best sponsored post that Instagram has ever offered me. Knowing that this is a thing that exists is a gift in and of itself.
When @cee.lavery reached out and told me that if I came to MTL they would swaddle me in blankets and feed me bagels, I decided that I deserved to treat myself. After just how hard the past few months have been I’m really looking forward to this little vacation filled with tarot, crying, queer feelings, bagels, bookshops, and one of the sweetest humans that I get to call my pal 💖
I’ve been having a real hard time thinking of what to share with you all over the past week. Things just continue to feel so hard. But this morning I woke up and saw that I was photographed asking Maggie Nelson a question and the fact that this photo exists makes me soooooooo happy. Thanks @yulischeidt for making sure I saw this and thanks to @conniemtsang for capturing this moment 💖
