a happy place 🌲••••
"When I am among the trees,
especially the willows and the honey locust,
equally the beech, the oaks and the pines,
they give off such hints of gladness.
I would almost say that they save me, and daily.
I am so distant from the hope of myself,
in which I have goodness, and discernment,
and never hurry through the world
but walk slowly, and bow often.
Around me the trees stir in their leaves
and call out, “Stay awhile.”
The light flows from their branches.
And they call again, “It’s simple,” they say,
“and you too have come
into the world to do this, to go easy, to be filled
with light, and to shine.”
—Mary Oliver

mama ocean 💧💧💧
"Yemaya is the Yorùbá Orisha or Goddess of the living Ocean, considered the mother of all. She is the source of all the waters in the world. Her name is a contraction of Yey Omo Eja, which means "Mother Whose Children are the Fish." As all life is thought to have begun in the sea, all life is held to have begun with Yemaya. She is motherly and strongly protective, and cares deeply for all Her children, comforting them and cleansing them of sorrow. She does not easily lose Her temper, but when angered She can be quite destructive and violent, as the sea in a storm."

[part 1//2]
Today I did something I've never done before.
I'll admit, I felt a momentary pang of guilt.. But as quickly as it arrived, it passed.
What did I do, you ask?

I flipped off a stranger. And then I mouthed the words 'fuck off!'. Why would I have done such a thing, you might be wondering?
Well, let me paint you a picture:

I just moved to Miami to begin a role as Auntie to a sister who has a 1 year old. The last few days have been about me getting fast-tracked into nanny/mommy/auntie life, finding my bearings and getting used to life in the city. Each day I've had with the little one, I've made a point to get us both out in nature.. So we whip out the fancy stroller and go for a walk around the neighborhood.
Sounds nice, right?

Unfortunately, it hasn't been. Each time baby Honor and I head out for our newly formed ritual together, I'm harassed.
It's happened now at least 7 times, and I've only been out in the neighborhood 3 times.
The first time, someone in their vehicle honked at me and waved. I couldn't see their face. Naively, I assumed I knew them and waved back. Next, he began to follow me as I walked.
Mind you, I was walking with a baby stroller. AND A BABY.
The man then parked his car and proceeded to get out. I was so scared. I felt threatened, concerned for myself and more importantly, the baby. I froze for a moment. He began to incessantly ask where I was from and to where was I going. My inner Mother Lioness activated and I quickly made an exit plan and found my way back to the house.
I figured it was a one-off sort of experience. And so the next day, we went on our walking adventure.
Again and again the cat-calling, the sexual slurs, the glaring eyes continued.

Today was the last straw.
I imagine that the passenger in the golden Camry who chose to yell 'hey mamasita, let me get yo number!' today was not prepared for such a harsh and immediate response, but this reaction has been boiling for a while now.
The simple act of flipping him and his friends off didn't really make me feel better, but I at least felt like I took a stand and said NO, it is NOT okay for you to yell at me from the safety of your moving car. [continued]

🍂 witnessing the fall
of leaves + of me
learning to let go
from the yukon
down to cali
softly releasing
flying free
over all those mountain ranges
through the chillkats
through the canadian rockies
through the cascades
through the sierra nevada
through the center of my heart
what I've sown
what I've outgrown
what I've been shown
and with the grace of wind
I am •••••💛

"The important thing is allowing the whole world to wake up. Part of allowing the whole world to wake up is recognizing that the whole world is free—everybody is free to be as they are. Until the whole world is free to agree with you or disagree with you, until you have given the freedom to everyone to like you or not like you, to love you or hate you, to see things as you see them or to see things differently—until you have given the whole world its freedom—you’ll never have your freedom." — Adyashanti •••🔸

••remember•• this is now,
and now, and now.
live it, feel it, cling to it.
I want to become acutely aware of all I've taken for granted.
