I was supposed to be visiting my parents in Indianapolis this weekend, but had a Moment of Realization on Tuesday night that I was not fit for travel. So I’m home with an extra free weekend but I know I’m not going to do anything with it.

What’s your favorite way to fritter away an unexpected block of time thanks to a cancellation?

Fuck You, Turnip

Author’s Note: I started off trying to make this a personal essay on what the Turnip Sacrifice meant to me. That didn’t work. Something in me resisted strongly. I’ve realized that I don’t want to explain. It works for me to open the ritual up to others so that they get what they want out of it and I get what I want out of it. And part of what I get out of it is not having to have it make sense or be justified/understood. It’s an experience and a ritual of the unconscious, and that is what it is.

BRING THE TURNIP YOUR DISASTERS, PAIN, AND SHIT!

THE TURNIP WILL TAKE IT INTO THE FIRE!!

BURN TURNIP BURN!!!
