I am the woman who sat by the sea and swallowed the world as she waited.

As the founder of Mount Holyoke’s femme organization on campus, Femmepowered, Tamar has long been on my list of femmes to feature on Style Queery.

Back in Femme Action!



Hello everyone!

Some of you might have noticed that my blog has been on something of a hiatus these past few months. I apologize profusely for completely disappearing like that! The last few months of undergrad were pretty hectic: I finished my (144-page) thesis, finalized my post-grad plans, wrote curriculum for my summer teaching position at Yale, graduated Magna Cum Laude with High Honors…

The Boat by LiorY

(via the-universe-is-calling)

Be gentle with me, new love.
Treat me tenderly.
I need the gentle touch,
the soft voice,
the candlelight after nine.

There’s been so many who didn’t understand

so give me all the love I see in your timid eyes
but give it gently

Rod McKuen, Listen to the Warm

Thought I’d found this with you. Whoops.

If you have the ability to love, love yourself first.

Charles Bukowski

Somehow missed the memo on this one…


I miss you so much.

You are still in my dreams
(which haven’t quite caught up to reality,
since there we are in love) —
but lately
I fear closing my eyes
to find you’ve disappeared.

I don’t want to
be alone

Being without you,
my eyes open,
is hard

Today the air smelled like
that first August night
when you leaned in
and changed my life.

They say smell
is the strongest form of memory,
but I’m so afraid
you’ve forgotten.

I would give anything
to feel your warm skin
as it promises me
everything will be
