card given – a tricky moment by Ross Campbell


It was strange how often Sarah thought about her mistakes and accidents while going to the bathroom.  Maybe it was that word “accident” that inspired her, or maybe it was just something fucked up in her neurology, but she didn’t mind it all that much.  Today, though, she just couldn’t stop considering that dismembering BOTH of her parents might have been a tactical error, what with her inability to drive.

card given – making a scene by Lisa Brown



A tantrum is furious, fretful and fun.

I’m loving the sound that I make.

I hope that my mom lets me do what I want,

though my tantrum is actually fake.

Card given – Parents by Anna Hollingsworth



Ah, motherhood!  Mia Farrows iconic look is known to us all these years later…but when I myself had a baby, the true terror came not from devilry but from colic, a condition that curses adorable babes to scream and scream and scream, munch-like, essentially, until adolescence…

Card Given – Reborn by Mike Hollingsworth



Samsara is a motherfucker so here’s one of my favorite quotes from Shantideva’s “Guide to the Bodhisattvas Way of Life.”

“Therefore, in whatever I do, I will never cause harm to others. And whenever anyone encounters me, may it never be meaningless for them.”

Card Given – Warm Creature by Alyssa Wendt


Outside it was springtime.  A nice yellow flower afternoon full of insects moving on fresh breezes.  The inside of the cave was always a bit like an early  night. S he wanted to know: Did they have names?  Would they be remembered?  Thinking back… a series of pictures, still hazy.  Milk flowed, flowed like paint.  A summer dance, and what else would we remember? Voices calling out:

Bring your own light.

It’s there right in the middle of your chest.

Dig it out and show me.

Here are your rations.

Best of luck.

We love you.
