I make a lot of film mistakes. There’s no delete button. Just my wittle ego if I share or not. Here’s @slowdiveofficial at night on a Holga with Ektar 100. I kinda love it. Tag me in some of your favorite film mistakes?
What started off as a personal project, transformed into a platform such as this. My pod 18.4K listeners/plays. Incredible journey helping others understand and heal from toxicity after NPD abuse. Not sure where I’ll be taking this. Perhaps when I am ready to stop recording, my listeners will follow me down the next path I take. But regardless, it feels amazing to have found the silver lining and have been able to help those in need seeking answers and something to hold on to in their own process 🙏🏻 I don’t advertise the name of the pod as it encapsulates all that is excruciatingly personal and reserved for the survivor community (but I’m very proud if I’m allowed to say that about my own creation).
Is your home a cluttered nest or a minimalist zen zone?
Do you subscribe to William Morris’ golden rule of “Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful”? Or, do you love your stuff — every ugly, useless part of it? For me, I’m some kind of organised squirrel hybrid... I have my things, I know where they are and I look after them but I do admit to having a degree of clutter that some people would find unbalanced!
Ever since I was little, I’ve collected things, but my most prolific collection was my buttons.
Each time my mother and I went to the fabric store for some of her inventory (she was an interior designer and soft furnisher at the time) I got to select a button to go home with. By the time I was 10, I amassed more than 700 buttons and I adored each one of them.
I could pull out the most random of them and remember the story of what happened when we got it, and why I loved it. Even today, when I go home, I see my button collection in a jar... full of nothing but buttons — but to me, it’s a memory box that houses so many precious stories.
