It’s Okay To Want To Be Seen

I took a picture of myself journaling. That is some is next level shit. I use social media as a tool for connection and to get my art into the world immediately and accessibly and I also use it to be noticed, observed doing something useful in the world- therefore making it valid. I used to be ashamed of my …

None of this makes us crazy

Some mornings I wake up feeling really grounded and by the afternoon I’m overwhelmed and wanna run for the hills in my flip flops and hide under the leaves. This doesn’t make me crazy. One night I’ll have a nightmare and wake up crying and this affects my productivity for the rest of the day. This doesn’t make me crazy. I sometimes use …

Dear Burners…have a nice trip down to your bubble.

I know that you’re all headed down this week for your 10 glorious days of living anti-constraint of societies petty responsibilities and it feels freeing and liberating and exciting (especially with your sand goggles packed). I get that. You trade hand puppets for drugs and home-made curry for a hug. That’s really great. But do not be mistaken for one …

Female Friends Fighting is Feminist

  When women fight with me I know that means we’re tight. I don’t mean get nasty or are always on my ass. I don’t mean say mean shit or complaining all the time. I don’t mean have higher than hell expectations they demand me to reach. I don’t mean being generally rude and snotty. I don’t mean flying off …

How to Deal with Cruelty

I’ve been encountering a lot of cruel people lately. Not physically cruel, that’s a whole other conversation with a whole other set of rules, but emotionally cruel people, out to hurt for hurtings sake. And my impulse is to retaliate. To protect myself and my family and my community from this cruel behavior. And it’s my right to do so, …

My job is not to talk about the light.

I woke up this morning and I did the first thing I do every morning…I reached for my phone. And I saw in my inbox that there was another post about light. I contemplated not reading it, but like chips or pot, I find it really hard to say no if it’s in front of me so I read the …

How to be rich when you feel poor.

1.When you wake up, after you do your “have to’s “kids to school, face washed, peed etc) before email, putting on pants or one quick facebook browse, get on the floor and move your body for 20 minutes. Set a timer. Yoga, stretching, rolling around, pretend yer a snake for all I care – just move your damn body before …

Just 15 minutes a day of being nice to myself…

Put the oxygen mask on yourself before you put it on your kids. Oprah calls it ‘radical self care.” It’s not about “treating yo’self.” It’s about survival. …and if you’re in need of some inspiration. This is what ME TIME could look like.

I’m Titrating Right Now.

Titrate: Verb: To continuously measure and adjust the balance of a physiological function.  One of the perks of having my own radio show is that I get to talk to whomever I want about whatever I want. This means most of my interviews are about emotions, drug-use and dirty jokes. I’ve always been fascinated with “going there”. You know? Going …
