fuckdudeskilldudes:

a few nights ago when I was midnight-swimming in the lake with this bro and some friends, the bro kept putting his head underwater and opening his eyes and being like “whoa it’s so dark you can’t see anything it’s just………blackness and water and shit”

and I was like “is the abyss staring back, or……………..”

he didn’t say anything but

I think it’s important to keep lakes terrifying

midnight swimming always and forever but I am an ocean girl.

“There are betrayals in my life that I have known at the very moment were betrayals: this was one of them. There are other betrayals committed so repeatedly, so mundanely, that they leave no memory trace behind, only a growing residue of misery, of dull, accreted self-hatred. Often these take the form not of words but of silence… Silence and then amnesia.””

I find now, swallowing one teaspoon
of pain, that it drops downward
to the past where it mixes
with last year’s cupful
and downward into a decade’s quart
and downward into a lifetime’s ocean.

Residue is my entire personality.

“She had seen fear: the terrible helpless fear that rises up out of sadness and despair and is no longer attached to anything— the helpless fear that is tied only to nothingness. Not fear or anxiety or despair about a person or a situation, nothing, nothing, only the exposure, the vulnerability, being cast loose from all certainties, from all dignity and all love.”

- Hans Keilson, Comedy in a Minor Key (translated by Damion Searls)

kill in the name of life

The abject is perverse
because it neither gives up nor assumes a prohibition, a rule,
or a law; but turns them aside, misleads, corrupts; uses them,
takes advantage of them, the better to deny them. It kills in the
name of life—a progressive despot; it lives at the behest of
death—an operator in genetic experimentations; it curbs the
other’s suffering for its own profit—a cynic (and a psychoanalyst); it establishes narcissistic power while pretending to reveal
the abyss—an artist who practices his art as a “business.” Corruption
is its most common, most obvious appearance. That
is the socialized appearance of the abject.—Julia Kristeva, “Powers of Horror”

Still from Isolation Tank, Gary Hill, 2011

Almost every day I fill the tub with salt water and lie down, with just enough of my face exposed to be able to breathe and stay there as long as I can. Sometimes the water gets cold and I refill it and then lie down again. When I’m submereged I can either hear the pipes gurgling or nothing at all.  I don’t think I even realized it was sensory deprivation until now, it’s just the only time I feel calm. I told Kara I’m having an empathic crisis which is so dramatic and flip but it’s true. Too many people talking and crowding and too many feelings and responses and it’s too hard to listen and it’s too hard to be heard.
