[Jo's Scrapbook] Do I Dare Disturb The Universe?

Jo is still here. Jo is still breathing.

I feel more than a little lost in the real world right now. It's exhausting, and I miss writing Jo. I so badly wanted to fit in here.

I'm hoping to come back and write here soon.

- Jo. x

Hey pretty,

You sent me this Rumi quote a while back, and now I'm sending it back to you with love & relevance.

Take your time sorting out real life. Breathe. Get some rest. We miss you here, but you'll always have a place. & as for fitting in? You already fit right in. Jo's few threads have made a beautiful impact and I can't wait to read more of her, when you're ready.

I hope everything's okay with you. If it's not, I have no doubt that it soon will be. Hang in there.

xx

[Jo's Scrapbook] Do I Dare Disturb The Universe?

Postby Johanne on October 8th, 2012, 2:58 am

After dealing with the suicide of a very very dear friend, Isabelle, and the hit and run accident of my boyfriend's brother, Tomas, I am slowly slowly slowly healing a bit. Right before these deaths, which happened in the same week, I was sick for three weeks and thus lost that pay. It's been hard. Very hard.

I am in the middle of university exams and I think about this place, the people and Johanne very often. I hope to come back when I have finished my exams, on the second of November.

Thank you Naeya for remembering who I am. xx

I have finally finally finished my exams! I really can't describe to you how much of a relief that is. To know that that's done, that I never have to do those again... it's brilliant. Tomorrow morning I'll be heading out to the art gallery and later getting a massage.

But I also really want to write tomorrow. I want to get back into this place. I haven't forgotten it. I'm still mersmerised. Hopefully I can get Jo started up again, and hopefully you'll get used to seeing me around. I've missed this place.

But for now, sleep. See you soon!

Jo xx

Well, congratulations on finishing them, for good or ill :p . No, I'm sure you've done splendidly! I was so glad to finish mine, so I can empathise completely.

Then again, I'm a glutton for punishment, so I may be setting myself up for another four or five years of exams soon...I must be mad.

Regardless, I hope to see you threading merrily around Lhavit very soon :) .

Hello hello, lovelies.

I think I return.

My boyfriend and I went up the coast for the week. It was wonderful. It's been a horrible few months but he's been a constant, and it was delightful to get away and just be with him for a while.

But I am back now and I hope to write here once more.

- Jo. xx

[Jo's Scrapbook] Do I Dare Disturb The Universe?

Postby Johanne on November 27th, 2012, 6:48 am

As some of you know already, I am a writer. That's what I do. I've had a few things published here and there, but nothing big. I adore poetry more than anything on this earth. And so I thought I would share with you all, you wonderful writers, a piece that I wrote a while back. I hope you enjoy it.


'semaine'

On Monday,
we folded laundry in the sun,
your stockings tangled and knotted
with my cheap lace bra (the one where
the underwire cuts into pinkflesh).

On Tuesday,
we drank red wine on the balcony,
nibbling on each other’s pasta and
laughing at the postman
who wandered down the street,
confused about the address he was
delivering to.

On Wednesday,
we wandered through the markets,
and I juggled lettuce and tomatos
to a round of laughing applause,
and you ooh’ed and ahh’ed
over dainty necklaces you could not pay for.

On Thursday,
we drank tea together,
sitting quietly at the kitchen table,
breathing in steam and longing for the weekend,
counting heartbeats until we could escape for work.

On Friday,
you fell asleep alone,
and I drowned beneath the stark office lights
in paperwork and signatures and kisses
from the secretary in fishnet tights.

On Saturday,
you made love to a stranger
on the couch downstairs, and I flicked
through the newspaper in bed upstairs,
and the moans that travelled to my ears
did naught to stir me, did naught to make me care.

On Sunday,
you smiled a taut smile,
and I did not tell you about the cheap lipstick
on your bleached teeth, and I did not hold your hand,
and we did not fall asleep touching, and we waited for Monday.

It's been so long since I've found a piece of poetry I enjoyed reading. Sadly I've become quite cynical to the art since the passing of a friend who was enamored with it. I couldn't tell you what it is about this poem that speaks to me, or even what part of me responds to it in a meaningful way, but I just thought you should know: I read it and I think it's beautiful. Thank you for sharing.
