Later this month, Boost House is releasing Joshua Jennifer Espinoza’s debut poetry book, i’m alive / it hurts / i love it !! joshua’s book engages with subjects such as coming out as a trans woman, “surviving and thriving w/mental illness, and attempting to reconcile [her] anger/sadness at the state of things w/ [her] love for all the beauty that exists.”
the book is 48 pages of poetry, with a sept 16th release date. we are SO proud to be part of this book’s existence, we think it is some of the most moving, beautiful, and important poetry being written today. if you’re not familiar with joshua’s poetry, we urge you to check out her work at blankslate.tumblr.com, and if you’ve got $12 for a new poetry book, we HIGHLY recommend pre-ordering i’m alive / it hurts / i love it

my new tattoo idea
im excited to see aamer rahman this thursday !
the most peaceful place i have found in my area to watch the sunset.. sounds of insects (but no mosquitos), gentle movement of the water coming up to the shore, and a wide-open view of the southwestern sky.. i want to come here more often !
(yesterday there was no sunset in my city it was totally overcast and kinda rainy ! the day before that, it was a decent sunset but my photos were kinda generic and my phone got messed up so i couldnt post it ! more to come !! # every sunset)
resource for learning cloud types
pictured = sunset from yesterday (day 18) ! cool way of having the pink lit-up sky behind the blue clouds, rather than pink clouds on top of the blue sky.. interesting move..
but tonight (day 19) there was nooo visible sunset from what i could tell, it was overcast all the way. that was interesting because i realized like, it just legit gets dark earlier when its overcast… on a clear or partly cloudly day the lingering sunset has such an effect of keeping the sky (and therefore everything else) at least partially lit for quite a whiiile after the sun is gone. tonight in the overcast, however, it was getting DARK by the usual prime sunset time..
