Bry from England, currently backpacking around New Zealand so blog updates sporadic.


I'll take any opportunity to swim in a water hole, usually getting naked. I enjoy warm pubs with a live band and a cold cider; best enjoyed in good company. I try and soak up experiences and throw myself into every new thing possible as I travel and meet different people... I endeavour to share my thoughts and experiences with you.

i always go back and from between being an empowered body activist and someone who cries when they get called fat

This is much better than talkin’. Yeah, well, when I say ‘to be continued.’ I mean ‘to be continued.’

Just full on cried at the end of the last episode of MMFD

Sometimes you just have to take a day to shut the world out so you can open up to yourself and deal with the chaos inside of you. And you don’t need to feel guilty or apologize or try to justify needing space. You just do what you need to do to take care of yourself, and that’s it. No explanation needed.

I had a real breakthrough with my yoga practice today. I’ve had to stay really dedicated the past 3 weeks to practice everyday, stretch myself etc and today I felt an incredible energy rise up from deep inside my body; kind of rising from the bottom of my intestines all the way up in to the top of my head via the space between my ribs and my organs. To be quite honest it was like an orgasm. Really incredible and it meant I could hold the postures for the full time too and breathe into it.

I feel so energised and refreshed, Louisa said she could definitely see the change today, like breaking through into a new phase in ones personal practice.

This has inspired me to take my practice more seriously and do as much yoga as I can to replicate that energy and warmth.

It is also a new moon which may have something to do with it as my teacher picks postures for parts of the body according to the moons position.

I thought you might find this interesting. I was in my woman's study class and the ONE guy in the claas tried to claim that misandry was a real problem and my teacher responded "Even if it is, Misandry is a woman, misogyny is the world" that just kinda stuck with me.

Misogyny is the world.”

"Slow" marine animals show their secret life under high magnification. Corals and sponges are very mobile creatures, but their motion is only detectable at different time scales compared to ours and requires time lapses to be seen. These animals build coral reefs and play crucial roles in the biosphere, yet we know almost nothing about their daily lives.

Stravinsky’s rite of spring is about a girl who dances herself to death to appease the Russian god of spring.

When it premiered the crowd got so amped up they opened up a mosh pit in the theater and the night would be forever known as the “riot of spring”
