purpurella Been thinking a bit bout why I disappeared off of IG. As racial violence & killings escalated in the US, & Black Lives Matter a movement emerged, & racists (including those who had been closeted racists & bigots emerged), & haters began to hate even more all over the world, & the injustices began to weigh heavier and heavier in my soul & my career became more careery in the social justice movement & life ups & downs kept rolling thru, it made this lotus want to find peace & solace not in picture taking or social media in my free time but by reading book after book and riding my bike ...the world right now makes me want to shout. So I find peace where I can. I'm off to LA today and it was so great to catch up with the amazing IG world for a minute. And to hang with beautiful lovely friends in Miami but I'm just not sure I can keep up with IG once I'm back to my grind. Sending peace and love to everyone tho in this mad mad mad world 🏾 #streetart #graffiti #miami #wynwood #artbasel2015 #artbasel 5mon

purpurella Thass me on far right this week was one of those work weeks where I dreamt about work every nite. So I hope u can understand why it's so funny to me to stand in front of this "house of mirror" after imbibing in happy hour with my social justice fellow comrades/chicas!! Coz I really needed to laugh (my work life is too intense mayne) I mean look at my arm 🏽 lol I'm home and yes I'm crawling into bed now. So exhausted. You just don't know ! #iGeek #iNerd #uPlayiSleep #nerdsSleeponfridayNites lol happy Friday y'all! #dtla #lotusLyfe #blackbrownunity 🏾🏽🏽 lol 1y
