“my belly is filled with cedar wood
there is sawdust still on the floor of my love
I have been sweeping it up for so many days of my life
but each day I sweep up a little bit more
one day my floor will be clean”

“All forests have their own personality. I don’t just mean the obvious differences, like how an English woodland is different from a Central American rain forest, or comparing tracts of West Coast redwoods to the saguaro forests of the American Southwest… they each have their own gossip, their own sound, their own rustling whispers and smells. A voice speaks up when you enter their acres that can’t be mistaken for one you’d hear anyplace else, a voice true to those particular trees.”

Laboratory-grown vaginas implanted in patients

Scientists reported today the first human recipients of laboratory-grown vaginal organs. A research team led by Anthony Atala, M.D., director of Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center’s Institute for Regenerative Medicine, describes in the Lancet long-term success in four teenage girls who received vaginal organs that were engineered with their own cells.

"This pilot study is the first to demonstrate that vaginal organs can be constructed in the lab and used successfully in humans," said Atala. "This may represent a new option for patients who require vaginal reconstructive surgeries. In addition, this study is one more example of how regenerative medicine strategies can be applied to a variety of tissues and organs."

Listening to two men argue about supply.

Christ.

Why are y’all yell-conversing.

My aunt’s dog passed away today, very peacefully.

It’s odd because I remember that dog from when I was a little kid.

He scared the shit out of me but once he got to know me, he would walk beside us little ones and snap at any strangers who came near.

I forget that life does not equal permanence. 

I need to remember, so I can appreciate.

You will be missed, buddy.
