Softer

Go softly.Softer.Softer, still.We’re all in the belly of the beast nowso find a place to lay your head downand sink deep into the thick velvetof your animal body. What happens now?Now that the ghosts of the machinehave haunted the halls of puritywrapped in their flags and audacitychanting manifestos of violenceand the monsterhas finally startedto devour…

nothing matters, everything matters

Nothing matters, everything matters.I was born on the outer edges of Autumnand I feel at home in the liminal spacebetween what is living and thriving and bloomingand what is dying and sinking back down into fertile ground.Everything comes undone.Nothing is left intact. I’m interested in the gravity that comeswith feeling the impermanence of things.Of momentsand…

wish list

I want to make you feel something.   I want good questions to always outweigh the answers that try to meet them, just enough so that we stay curious. I want to be guided by elders and children at the threshold of all that is both ancient and brand new. I want ceremonies and rituals…

checking in

I’d like to check in, may I have your attention?  It’s been awhile since I’ve felt compelled to share through this medium, but I want to let the thoughts and emotions bouncing around in me to have a place to land.  I am feeling stretched, fingertips reaching wide towards the sharp contrasts of joy and…

checking in

I’d like to check in, may I have your attention? I’ve been feeling a lot of fear and anxiety in my body these last few days – some of it is mine, and a lot of it seeping in from the collective. My mind has been busy, I haven’t been sleeping well, adrenaline has been…

We are conditioned to live in fearand at the same timeto live in a blissful stateof normalcy and ignorance.Everything is falling apart.Everything is fine.We should worry, hunker down, be prepared, gather bounty.This is fearmongering, stop worrying, go about your life.
