Hi. I'm Héléna. If you need to talk, if you want to share your story, if you want to get to know me, or if you just want to have a stupid random conversation with somebody, feel free to message me :).

Life is meant to be experienced kinesthetically, not just mentally. You were born with a multitude of senses, be intimate with them. Everything around you is vibrating and alive, be alive with it. Be aware of the sounds and the smells. Every thought and every sensation. Whatever arises, just witness it. Don’t get consumed by it. Don’t let it sweep you away. Take refuge in direct experience. Allow everything to unfold as it is, naturally and uncontrived. There is a vividness to life that lies beyond the limits of your mind.

As a writer, if someone falls in love with my work, I know they have fallen in love with my mind. Having no idea what my face looks like, they chose my mind. Art may be the only space a woman can be whole without being seen.

The Death of Chris McCandless

On September 6, 1992, the decomposed body of Christopher McCandless was discovered by moose hunters just outside the northern boundary of Denali National Park. He had died inside a rusting bus. Taped to the door was a note scrawled on a page torn from a novel:

ATTENTION POSSIBLE VISITORS.
S.O.S.
I NEED YOUR HELP. I AM INJURED, NEAR DEATH, AND TOO WEAK TO HIKE OUT OF HERE. I AM ALL ALONE, THIS IS NO JOKE. IN THE NAME OF GOD, PLEASE REMAIN TO SAVE ME. I AM OUT COLLECTING BERRIES CLOSE BY AND SHALL RETURN THIS EVENING. THANK YOU,
CHRIS McCANDLESS
AUGUST ?

It appeared that McCandless had been dead for 19 days. Before this stage it was indicated that he was 24 years old and weighed 140 pounds. After his body was flown out of the wilderness, an autopsy determined that it weighed 67 pounds. The probable cause of death, according to the coroner’s report, was starvation.

If you’re lesbian and you fall for a guy
FINE
If you’re gay and you fall for a woman
FINE
If you’re bisexual and you have a preference for girls
FINE
If you’re bisexual and you have a preference for guys
FINE
If you’re pansexual and have a preference
FINE

What’s not fine is telling someone they can’t love another person because it doesn’t fit into the confinements of a label.
