Image description: I caught a piece of rainbow in the sky shining off of the sun, right at sunset. It was the perfect symbol for this poem I wrote, with my favorite line being about rainbows. “To let things that used to hail storms leave rainbows now” and so the poem goes: A passing of my youth I can feel it happening A passing of my youth Moments of wisdom that only age could gift me I see it in my face The passing of my youth It’s not in a particular line or shade of skin But I can see it in the mirror staring back at me I can feel it in my breath The space I leave for acceptance Of change The big change that moves things you thought were permanent I can see it in my past As I’m grateful to the chapters of old books I can see it in my desire to live more gracefully To let things that used to hail storms Leave rainbows now I can sense it in my body It doesn’t hold my youth as invincible like it once did The weight of my body is now my reverence for life instead of just an act of glory I wish to always carry a youthful spirit a spirit that doesn’t die nor does it fade, filled with vitality and an appetite to learn But a passing of my youth brings a richness to my wisdom The challenges I’ve walked upon, their stories mean nothing without seeing the fruit of their wisdom in my being Yes darling, I have aged In all the best ways. - Imani Quinn

I am a woman of color, and I will never apologize for that, it has become my greatest strength. I consistently occupy space where I am one of few or the only woman of color, if my presence makes people recognize that, than I am doing my job as a passion seeker. I asked myself today how do I empower the multicultural, it’s a part of my passion and what I do for my company, but how do I do that as a human in my daily life. And the answer is that I live it and I breath it, I may be flawed, I may adjust my actions or my language, but my intention is strong and that I am certain of. 🙆🏽‍♀️💃🏾💜✨ mystic Mani. #empowerthemulticultural

“There’s no amount of words that could be said that’ll ease a situation. The only thing that really eases painful emotions is time and patience/acceptance of self.” Those words struck me and feel applicable to many things in life. Pic just for fun, a San Diego sunset.

Today I went to see my dear friend @alexiariner installation piece which is on vine street in Hollywood (let’s recognize this talented woman of color for her bad ass work being on the public streets of Hollywood) and she delivers the most beautiful original music, that has so much depth as it explores barriers and it’s influence on identity. #empowerthemulticultural If you live in LA go check it out while it’s up this weekend! And stay posted as we share our upcoming project that we’re doing together soon! Think out of this world music, technology, choreography and fashion.

I haven’t written in a while Afraid of imperfection A bit unraveled Testing my limitations Have you met them yet Does it matter Eyes are gentle enough Skin soft enough Sensitive Will they even know what you’re talking about Does it matter Isn’t that a poem A secret Words weaved together Drink me honey Into the lucid realm of your sleep Our stories will still sound different anyway Who gets to be right Does it matter - Imani Quinn.

Would you rather be careful or live freely? Image: a young dreamer circa the 90’s in my belly dancing outfit

When I first moved to LA I thought it was the grimy slutty sister next to San Diego where I had lived before. It took me a while to see the beauty in its off beat character, just like people some of the most beautiful things come from the soul, from looking at the gems not foreseeable at first glance.
