I shared with a friend the blog post sacred song, about ishtadevas and re-finding a lovely tune I’d lost, but mostly about being accepted no matter what.  When I shared the post, I realized that although I don’t use the words, it’s about cancel culture and unconditional love. I made a zine some months ago,… Read More »

cabbage

“Uuugh!  Uuuuugh!  Jeeze, who needs weightlifting when you have cabbage?” I asked Ming.  I was in the kitchen, asking a free cabbage to submit to my will, to be sliced by my biggest knife, into the colander. “There’s a lot of cabbage in a cabbage,” I told Ming.  “That’s my wisdom for you today.” He… Read More »

who’s Venn and why does he get all the diagrams?

I made a Venn diagram.  Not sure I ever made one before.  I was working on a new zine, and there was stuff about community.  A strong impulse stirred inside me, to diagram it! I thought “me” should be small, since I am small, but the the smallness caused difficulty of the circles.  No matter. … Read More »

how the chicken experiment went

Hey, gmorning.  I wanted to tell  you how the chicken experiment went! Yes, so we got that 15 pounds or whatever of free chicken in the culinary school free box.  There were other foods that I would consider normal foods, like carrots, onion, rice, potatoes, apples, beans, corn tortillas… Ming and I don’t eat mammals,… Read More »

community

Hey, we went to a protest.  We were opposing evictions and rent in general, really.  It was good to show up.  I flew my Community is Possible sign. But the cops were acting bad.  They were in one spot, and a tow truck was with them too.  Then one circled around behind us, so we… Read More »

things to do when I’m distressed

I made this art, with sentences like affirmations. I like the colors–I felt brave, never using colors quite like this.  And it helps how the sentences go on the colors…?  It changes their movement. Then I made this one for Ming to have sentences to say to me when I’m really upset.  I talk to… Read More »
