Is This The Revolution?

Whiplash. That’s the only way I can accurately describe what we’ve experienced and lived this week. REMINDER FOR BLACK WOMEN:Please don’t think because white folks are eager to learn everything right now that you have to jump or bend over backwards to give it to them. Chances are high that you’ve been inundated with questions […]

Black Trauma + Black Joy

It’s exhausting.I’m exhausted. If I’m being honest, I’m supposed to be the person that slides in your inbox and reminds you to center your joy. To boldly take up space. To get outside and get grounded. And that all sounds like bullshit right now. A black man birdwatching in the early hours of the morning […]

It’s been a wild, weird week

This has been a doozy of a week, right? There’s a lot of fear and overwhelm and anxiety and even some downright panic going around. There’s also grief over canceled plans, concerns about the future, anger over the decisions being made by our government (or lack there of), sadness about the ripple effects those decisions […]

“The definition of insanity is to keep doing the same thing over and over again while expecting different results.” Chances are you’ve heard that sentiment over and over again. But when was the last time you really audited your life to see where you’ve been embracing and relishing insanity, rather than rejecting it? I can’t […]
