“Magic always happens when you direct your inner powers to the object you want to change.”
Bangambiki Habyarimana, Pearls Of Eternity

Jalina Mhyana
“I can’t remember what I’ve done with my lingerie. I look in the containers under my bed, as if my sexual self has been relegated to the wrong side of the mattress. I imagine my husband’s sexuality down there too, our shadow selves making love deep in our unconscious as we cuddle above the mattress as brother and sister.”
Jalina Mhyana, Dreaming in Night Vision: A Story in Vignettes
