NO JUDGMENT is a weekly interview series feat. Timeless' lovely writers, so they can begin to assume a shape beyond floating heads in the twittersphere.
This week's personal esoterica comes courtesy of Melissa Mack.
A memorable/embarrassing-in-hindsight early email address or username? What age?
My embarrassments, which are many, are in other arenas.
You would be named Patron Saint of ______.
What is a gift you received that made you feel truly seen?
A daybook made for me by a friend long before I knew what a daybook was.
If you gave this current period in your life a song title and/or band name, what would it be and why?
My Life -- after Lyn Hejinian, a texture of ongoingness
Share yr childhood vs. adulthood ~*comfort object of choice*~ (i.e. a special teddy, blankie, vape/joint, etc.).
Then: a menagerie of stuffed animals
Now: that is a secret
What is your least favorite food?
Do you resonate with yr Zodiac Sign? Say more.
I'm a Libra and I feel like one. Ambivalence, indecision, justice, pretty things. Also, according to Luke Dani Blue, it's very Libran of me to take a long time getting ready to go out (which combined with my deep introversion often means not making it out at all). Libra also shares a phoneme with library and liberation!
Last form of “medicine” you offered yourself (can be emotional, spiritual, metaphysical)?
Flower essences! Borage for courage, pine for unnecessary guilt/anxiety, manzanita for loving the body, wild oat for finding one's way.
Share 3 of your recent google searches (no judgment xo).
"best resistance bands" (exercise not music), "where are Arkansas diamonds" [work trip to rural Arkansas], "does Walmart have a Starbucks?" [ditto Arkansas]
Share a reaction image/gif that represents you during yr writing process.
