and you see, friends, i tried.
i tried to be small, to be quiet. to embody all of those feminine traits that are so admired. but really, all i’m wanting to do is go out and ruin my clothes in the mud, to dig until my fingernails are filled with dirt. to fill my pockets with flower petals and stones, to lay on the ground and watch the clouds change shapes and to thank brother sun and sister moon for lighting our ways.
you can find me in the garden, your effie. ❤
