just let it boil over
feast, think about it tomorrow,
laze about and see the air,
wind on the sky, go with it but do not sprint,
to live is to love long, not some burning affair,
you have years to reach the horizon, so stop squinting
at the future, you'll get there later
do not rush, do not fear
calm the heart, love you'll throw up
everything you ate,
nothing is as bad as it seems to you,

i'm not saying i have problems, although some people will say that i do. i decided long ago that i am probably fine and that if there is something wrong with me, it is not for me to decide.
there's a reason for that. people tell me it is denial, but no, i have a reason. if nothing else i am a highly logical person.
if i am left to my own devices and i let myself think of what all has happened i will end up having one of ay-mee's infamous breakdowns. and ay-mee has had enough of those. she is tired of them, damn it.
so i have gotten myself a team of doctors together and i have let them decide things for me. i let them decide what i can handle and what is wrong and how to go about fixing it. and i let them fix it. i let them give me prescriptions and i take the pills just as it says. if they say, 'ehmea, you need to stop working for a while. you need to quit yo
Long time no journal (again).
A lot is going on. I'm in the midst of gender transition, which is going great, and I'm headed off to Tufts in about a week and a half.
One of the biggest things that's going on is that I'm working on a near-future science fiction short story collection. It's called 'Biophone' and I plan to put it out via Amazon CreateSpace some time in the next couple of weeks. All the writing is done, but I'm in the thick of revisions.
I’m looking for volunteers to critique bits of the collection. The bits are all between about 700 and 1500 words, and shouldn’t take more than an hour to read through and leave comments on. You don’t need to be a writer or a poet. The more eyes of varying knowledge and background I can get on this thing, the better it’ll turn out.
Your time is valuable. I’d be super grateful if you could contribute a few minutes of it to my project.
Let me know if you’re interested by emailing me at consolecadet @ gmail . com. If you’re not interested, please consider telling your friends.
I'm more than willing to trade crit for crit.
Now: how are you all doing?
