"I put something in my mouth that is roughly pill shaped. It’s not a pill, just a small egg someone painted many different colors. A family of birds grows up in my stomach. Their beaks are made of charcoal. They make long sketches of you & pin them to the walls."
— Bob Schofield, “Our Lives Sit Far Apart & Turn Into A Kind Of Wilderness,” published in Medium (via bostonpoetryslam)
"In order to get some answers, and to start putting faces on the often overlooked bisexual population, The Advocate asked four questions of 27 bisexual people and those in relationships with someone who is bisexual. The answers come from an eclectic group in monogamous, nonmonogamous, and polyamorous relationships as well as other couplings that just don’t have labels. Their stories depict just a small portion of the bisexual-involved couples all around the world.
In this first part, we asked the couples to name the biggest misconceptions they face in their relationships. Using #27BiStories, readers can respond with their own experiences, and share these stories on social media. This is the beginning of a conversation that begins highlighting the sometimes silent B in LGBT.”
Cassidy Rae Limbach born 1985 OH, USA is an abstract painter and illustrator working on linen with acrylic, collage and inks. Her concerns are with rich-juicy colors, textures and surface qualities to create life-affirming visual meditations.
Limbach plays with a spectrum of candy colored pastels intermingled with ornate design. She is inspired with the nature of both humans and animals alike and tends to present them in different roles. Her provocative designs are shown in a matter of poise but still remain very personal and demand attention.
Cassidy lives and works in her downtown home studio in Columbus, Ohio.

"I’m so hungry I could eat a horse the world!” This weirdly enticing fried chicken burger is served on a blue and green planet Earth bun. It’s on the menu at the Orbi Yokohama science museum, a collaborative creation by the BBC and SEGA located in Yokohama, Japan.
We already love learning about and doing science, but the opportunity to have science-y fun while also eating some unnaturally blue food is practically worth the price of the plane ticket.
Adrian Chin is a 27 year old Filipino-American digital artist. In lieu of going to medical school, he decided to pursue his passion and pick up art full-time after graduating from college. When asked what inspires him to create his dark, textured and captivating pieces, Adrian said:
“So many things inspire my art-making. It could be a feeling, a texture, an image, looking at art. Sometimes I just want to draw and figure it out from there… I’d describe my work as: ugly, beautiful, [and] meditative.”
