Basil truly is a benevolent herb, capable of repelling and removing malevolent influences, as well as repairing auras damaged by repeated attack. I strongly suggest an initial cleansing (smudging or sea-salt bath) beforehand to allow the energy of this herb to work most efficiently. Make a very strong infusion of basil. Strain, and allow to cool; it will be touching your naked skin, so make sure you can comfortably stick your hand in it. Bring the bowl and a clean white washcloth with you to the empty bathtub. Standing naked in the tub, dip the cloth into the infusion and wipe, down and out, starting from you head/ face to chest, arms, then hands, etc. Do not rinse. Allow yourself to air dry and reserve the infusion. Repeat the procedure for nine days. When you have finished, take the leftover infusion (please, please, make sure you have some left, this is important! ) and throw it out your front door forcefully.Even if you aren't the victim of magical attack, this spell is very effective in helping you to raise and strengthen your personal shields.

I was born walking between
two minds
the spiny kind
and a melon rind
One half's got
an ax to grind
But the other half
hunts for wrists to bind

Today is the 6th of the month, the day that rent is late. This month is the first month we've been late paying rent, and it's because of bank/check issues. Tomorrow we'd have everything together to cover the rent and the $75 late fee. This morning, before either of us had time to go to the office to speak with our landlady, there was a note on the door which read: ALL OF YOU, YOU HAVE 3 DAYS TO PAY OR VACATE.
You know, I can understand writing a note that says PLEASE COME TO MY OFFICE, which we were going to do anyway, seeing this was the FIRST DAY and FIRST TIME our rent was ever late. She also chased down my boyfriend while he was running late for the bus, and he told her that he'd gotten the note, planned to speak with her, but had to run now because of the bus. You could've given either of us the time to come down and explain the situation, or asked us politely, considering this is a) the first time we've ever been late with rent and b) the FIRST day in the early morning of lateness. Is it just me?

The human ego is a fascinating thing! It grows like a weed and most people are lazy gardeners. Me, too.

I am an incorrigible procrastinator. When I'm supposed to be reading for school, I'm painting for personal purposes. When I want to be painting for personal purposes, I am cleaning the kitchen.

I also want to go home. This feels like a bizarre extended vacation, and the school costs way too much money, so much so that I doubt I can afford to continue next year, or even next quarter...and my life feels like I'm at a crossroads and all the roads are under heavy construction so all I have to do is sit down and examine the tops of my feet for some time.

I really miss being a kid. I really wish I had the understanding of why being a child is so appealing to me. I wonder what it was about being a kid that was so great, because I know that there were plenty of problems surrounding me. The ability to easily retreat into my head? The belief in magic? The hope for the future? Lack of personal responsibility? I guess. It is nice being able to crawl into a womb of a bed at night and spend both your days and nights dreaming and waiting on life to begin, before it gets too obvious that life doesn't really mean anything besides what you do with it. I wrote and drew joyfully, daily. When I was a kid, my thoughts were easy poetry. Good things occured in my mind easily. I remember being able to smell keenly autumn coming to Brooklyn. Every year I noticed that sharp sense blunted just a hair. When one is older one tends to be their own tunnel, their own to-do lists, their own responsibilities. Too many choices? Expectations? I should cut myself off here.

I keep having dreams of Joan of Arc. She comes to me in the form of a book every time. I wonder what this means.
