Rise Up. Show Up. Unite!

Rise Up. Show Up. Unite!

Rise up. Show up. Unite. I am a United States citizen, and I created this piece of art for the #riseupshowupunite challenge by the amazing and inspirational artists Jessica Hische and Ade Hogue. Artists have a unique opportunity to inspire others through words and images, so this was a challenge that felt like a perfect fit for a gal who loves art, equality, smashing the  patriarchy and exercising her voting rights…  Rise Up As for my vote? I choose to rise up and vote for a world fit for future generations. Humanity is more important than rising stocks. Preserving our...


Three Ways  to Practice Being Uncomfortable

Three Ways  to Practice Being Uncomfortable

Practice being uncomfortable? Why practice that?? This face? ☝🏽 That's a face experiencing and expressing discomfort.... Looks uncomfy, my friend.. It's hard not to see the rising levels of fear and discord in the United States. Learning to be uncomfortable is paramount if our goal is to really understand each other, support each other and fight for the dignity and respect of every person, not just rooting for the group we feel most comfortable with.

Fitting in very often requires abandoning our own core values in favor of being accepted or protected...


More Love, More Justice

More Love, More Justice

"Never forget that justice is what love looks like in public."- Cornel West Wow, what a thought invoking phrase. One that could be interpreted and debated in so many ways, depending on the lens through which we see the world. I have much to learn about Cornel West. I saw this phrase a while back and it really stuck with me. "Justice is what love looks like in public." I wondered if my interpretation of the words aligned with the way the author intended them to be interpreted. In my continuing search for truths, I imagined this phrase must surely be calling to...


The Moth

One day a caterpillar just living her best life, crunching leaves and scooching across twigs said, "Ah, this is life; This is as good as it gets." And she feasted joyfully. After days of feasting, the caterpillar felt a stirring, a feeling of new sensations bubbling within her cylindrical plumpness. A perplexing thing happened. The mouth that once only found satisfaction and nourishment from crunching leaves discovered a new sense of satisfaction - creating silk! "Wow! Who knew?" thought our friend. She didn’t admonish her mouth to continue leaf crunching, but followed this urge to spin silk. Slowly, carefully, she...
