Before I return to New York portraits, I want to share some portraits and stories that I gathered on an unscheduled side trip that I took to Jerusalem. Because of the hastily arranged nature of the trip, I worked with some unorthodox interpreters, including an extremely bright sixteen year old Palestinian boy. He approached everyone quite confidently, until we got to this group, and suddenly he got fidgety and clammed up. “Um, I don’t know,” he said. “They, um, will probably say no, um, maybe we should ask someone else.”

“I’ll be your slaughterhouse, your killing floor, your morgue and final resting, walking around with this bullet inside me ‘cause I couldn’t make you love me and I’m tired of pulling your teeth.”

“When I lost you, I didn’t start thinking about you more. You have always drowned me in my thoughts. But back then, it felt like swimming in rum, leaving my skin tingling and my lungs breathlessly high.

Now, I feel like my skin is being drowned in acid. Your name seeps through every thought in my mind, and the ache is charring away at all of my bones.”

"She taught me how to dance. We actually met at a graduation party. I was the only one not on the dance floor, and her friend bet her that she couldn’t get me to dance. I’d already said ‘no’ to ten girls, but she talked me into it. We were together 55 years. She died eight years ago, but I still dance every day."

“I want to change myself
into the people that I have
always envied. The redhead
with constellations of freckles
on her skin, the blonde who
really does seem to have
more fun, and the jet black
haired woman who could
give a fuck less if a man thinks
she should be more feminine.
These women who seem
to have the entire world dangling
at the ends of their earlobes
are the people that I have
read about but have yet
to experience. These women
who have put men in their
Monday morning trash without
thinking twice. These women
who have more spine than
regret, more knowledge than
compassion, and more
wisdom of the world than
they do beauty tips.
These women, these fearless
leaders, these I could break
you into two if you touch me
again, are the women
that I have always wanted
to be able to change into.”

mostlyfiction:

I still have the desire
to call you up on the phone
and confess to you
that what we once had
is still something
that I want, that I crave.
But there is no use
because no matter how many
times I tell you that I want
you back, there will
always be a reason for you
to keep your heart guarded.

“1) Learn to put on your bracelets and zip up your dresses by yourself. There will be times when you will be alone.
2) Get on a long plane ride. Look out the window. Understand the immensity of our world. Understand your insignificance. Understand your absolute importance.
3) Press the send button. If you don’t say it now, you never will.
4) Do not sneer at happiness or roll your eyes at sadness. Be aware that apathy is not healthy.
5) You are more than the amount of people who want to have sex with you.
6) That pit in your stomach when he doesn’t text you back, it shouldn’t be there. No one should be able to control you like that.
7) Shopping is cathartic. Buy the shoes and deal with one-ply toilet paper for a while.
8) It will get better, but it will never be perfect. Learn to live through the small moments of happiness. When they disappear, remember they will resurface.
9) I promise that cookie will not change anything (except that it will make you smile).
10) Please, please, take care of yourself. You are everything to somebody. You are everything to your self. That alone is enough.”
