zine interview with LA Public library

Hello, I’m so happy.  My zine interview with the LA Public Library posted.  Please enjoy and share.

I love libraries as a gem of society.  If we’re going to have a government, may it do wonderful socialist things like public libraries.  Zines are my favorite, I enjoy being interviewed, and I love LA!

I was happy to speak about ideas that are important to me, and to mention some of my favorites zinester friends from over the years.  Mostly ladies, non-binary gender people, and badass witches who say something surprising that the world needs to hear.

The interview took place over email a few months ago.  Finding out it finally posted is a thrill.


I wish I had mentioned that I was born in California and come from southern California (according to some maps).  I’m so grateful many people care what I say and want to share my ideas.  Feels validating that I’m being heard.

Thank you for caring about this zine interview with LA Public Library.  Thank you for caring about me and my work.  I see the recent interviews as evidence that I’m on the right path.  Feels great to form a life where my voice is heard, my gifts are valued, and I’m surrounded by people who believe in me.

I’ve tried some difficult things lately to free up energy.   Now I can do more of my life’s work according to the gifts my ancestors handed me.  Here are some life-nourishing difficult things I’ve done.

  • ending abusive relationships
  • leaving Las Vegas
  • radical mental health
  • hours per day of self-care, including yoga with Ample Movement
  • getting rid of some extraneous personal possessions
  • slightly changing my attitude toward money (allowing myself to spend it)
  • saying no
  • saying yes
  • asking for help from Ming and other friends

Thank you to everyone who helps in a respectful, desired way.

Good at listening to the noise until it makes sense.
