Well, here we are.
We are alive and we are breathing.
We are here.
This is the moment we are living in.
I'm rapidly realizing I have SO much to learn while I also have so much to give. That's the dance, isn't it?
The question is, what now?
How do we move forward together to create a world where we can live with hope in our hearts and respect for all beings?
How do we listen and learn from each other, with our very different experiences and beliefs about life, yet find a way through it to a place love and healing?
We may be here for a while...
But it's up to you and me and the time is now to put our hearts into it.
Here's what I'm doing to get the wheels turning...
(aka... less talk and more action for this little love warrior.)
On Saturday, I'm joining the women's march in downtown Portland.
I'm marching with sisters and brothers, dressing up in hearts and love, because I feel in my bones that things have gone too far.
I'll bring my love and wear my sturdy boots and I will show up to be in community.
I will stand with and for those being oppressed.
I'll pass out smiles, chant and sing empowering words, make eye contact and exchange hugs.
I'll probably pick up some litter and I'll definitely snap a few photos.
I will show up.
And I will listen and learn and make peace and take up space.
Because I was born in this awesome country where that is still ok.
Because it's time.
In all my years identifying as a hippy, a revolutionary, a free spirit with a deeply caring heart, I'm hearing this call to action like never before.
Because now more than ever I believe this:
When we are separate we are isolated and humans are not really wired to survive (let alone thrive) in isolation.
We need each other. We need to listen and learn from each other. That's how we can move forward with respect and love.
We need connection and action and people showing up.
So I want to thank you for witnessing and being alive, right here, in this moment of now.
Together we can do anything!
I'll be sure to report back and share what I learn in the streets and beyond.
Another big way I'm taking action right now is by officially opening my studio doors and offering in-person workshops. It's a dream come true!
I'll be offering classes on self love and creativity and we will make masterpieces together. Sounds amazing, right?
It's been brewing for a long time and I'm SO excited that it's happening here and now. If you're in Portland, come make art with me!
