i hope you are taking care and able to dream, rest, listen <3
i have taken a small pause from writing during exams and will be moving this newsletter to a different platform due to substacks role in platforming transphobia. you can read more about it HERE. I will likely move to tiny letters, so expect a prompt inviting you to resubscribe to this newsletter (it may take me some time to transfer over!). I will send an update via this newsletter as well so you don’t miss it!
in the meantime, i have a few updates!
~ i am starting a new regular column this june about dreams!
Dream Divinations is a column that visits dreams as a space of subconscious community. For every dream, Bára offers Dream Divinations that weaves interpretation, divination, and poetry to offer a reflection of your dream. Each divination is an interpretation, a symbolic mirror, not a professional analysis. It is an invitation to take a deeper dive into your dream world.
