I am Tara Long. I never knew my mother and I am in a cult. This is Cult Supply.
The cult is comprised of eight artists. The Original Eight.
We are a hot water cult as we were formed in the hot springs of Mexican mountains.
“AMANDA WONG” represents purity of the self.
Amanda Wong is alive, and she is not my mother.
One can and should awaken their wildness, the primal instinct within.
Find your SELF. Honor your self.
Society is so LOUD. Sometimes to hear ourselves we have to drown it out instead of sit in silence.
Do not only meditate in silence.
I am not an illusionist, this is not a trick.
This is Cult Supply.
My intention is to provide. Here is a space. Here is a pillow. Here is a painting. Here is a person. Here is a poem. Here is a website. Use these things.
Self preservation may lead to
Self preservation is revolution.
“I travelled through a land of men,
A land of men and women too,
And heard and saw such dreadful things
As cold earth wanderers never knew.”
