What an inspiring day @smithsonian talking with @cheechmarinofficial and Mily Treviño-Sauceda of @campesinasunite on stage for The Long Conversation. This incredible event asks 30 thinkers to delve into what makes us optimistic about the future. I’m brimming with joy and ideas. #thelongconvo

This weekend is @yasminemei’s annual holiday pop-up @individualmedleystore. I’ll be joining her Sunday Dec 9th from 10am-1pm, writing poetry and selling books. I’ll have some special frames for poems and maybe a few other surprises for sale as well. I love this event! It’s so special to be surrounded by my friends in this shop that I adore. See you there!

I’m done sifting through all of these little poem scraps, moving into the editing phase with @matt.phipps for the next volume of “The Edge of the Continent” and feeling very excited. It’s been hard to write about the city. It was easy to write about the forest...

DC friends! I’m so excited to partner with @smithsonian for “The Long Conversation” on Friday Dec 7th. This special event highlights 30 thinkers discussing what makes us hopeful for the future. Scientists, artists, space explorers, drag queens, and inventors convene for an eight-hour relay of mini-conversations about what’s on the horizon. It’s an honor to be included in this year’s line up and to be featured on @thelilynews alongside so many inspiring women! #thelongconvo photo @shelbyduncan

Inspired by my conversation with @hoodablah about the crucial work of @rachel.cargle and the importance of giving space for anger in activism and healing.

Happy solar travels to my cosmic Queen @shelbyduncan - We’ve gone through many many years together, delving deeper, trying harder, learning, learning, learning. This coming year is sure to be a golden offering of transformation and results. Thank you for being my aligned partner, for braving the darkness of the mind and body, and for staying so so true. I’m grateful that the universe wove us together in this lifetime. Happy birthday, you’re a sunshine sacred gift to us all.

I’m always clarifying my intentions and the purpose behind everything I do. Especially when it comes to my work. Yesterday, I wrote for so many people who were suffering from all types of loss. Suicide, fertility, the death of a parent, the ache of loneliness, the sting of betrayal. My poems were met with tears and as I embraced my customers, I felt our shared healing. I was overcome with gratitude for language, for all of the tools that we have access to as humans that allow us to be purposeful and active in our own potent ways. This purpose will forever shift and grow. I feel I can let my purpose be fluid, but I also try to keep it in focus so that it always acts as my guide.
