It’s not unusual to see a wonderful variety of classic cars in California. But, it’s extremely rare to see an old Checker Cab. So rare, that the murals on the Clarion Alley walls all whipped out their cellphones and started taking pictures. ——

I have barely ever taken a nap in my adult life. But I have been known to pause and switch gears out of the blue. I feel like I went into full zombie mode for about a month....or four. I am not sure what happened, but last night, after these long months of hibernation: My brain woke up, my eyes opened, my soul ignited again. I haven't felt this way in so long. It was like I was soul less, empty inside (one of the worst feelings you could have). My soul had left for sabbatical (without notice I might add) and it returned last night. It feels new and refreshed. I'm so happy because I was getting really frustrated feeling like that. If you have never experienced this before, let me explain. It feels like you are empty and unfulfilled...in every aspect. It feels like something is missing but you don't know what. So....you try everything. You eat because maybe you are hungry, nope not it; you drink because maybe you are thirsty, nope still not it; you buy things, still not working....you catch my drift. It is just a rut, a phase that your mind and body have to get through on it's own. Sort of like how a virus has to run it's course. There is no words that someone can say to help you feel better or "snap out of it", there is no cure. The only thing I can tell you is that when it is over, it is like the sun is shining again after months and months of rain. It is like the best feeling actually, and I am happy to be back.

Still thinking about some of the street art that was scattered around SF. I’m pretty sure this was my favorite piece. It allowed me to reflect on permanence and innovation and loss and change; things that have been top of mind a lot recently. #streetart #sanfrancisco #clarionalley

San Francisco was “dope,” and yes I learned slang here too 🙃

#MLKday • Do you know these names? • Swipe for Letters from a Birmingham Jail • I took this photo in Clarion Alley, an ever-evolving grassroots alleyway of art, when i played a show up in SF a few months ago. ❤️.

Martin Luther King Jr. - “Will we be extremists for hate or for love? Will we be extremists for the preservation of injustice or for the extension of #justice?” ..
.
.
I post excerpts of Letters every year on this day in hopes that people will read the entirety of his words. I feel like it’s hard to read Instagram text posts so here’s where you can read in full: https://www.africa.upenn.edu/Articles_Gen/Letter_Birmingham.html (or just google: Letters from a Birmingham Jail) .

real quick: are you a white American? Do you enjoy the MLK Jr. holiday with a nice day off of work but can only remember a few of his words... “I have a dream...” If that’s the case, please please please - we must all dig deeper. The plea for the white moderate to wake up is still ringing. (Unfortunately, my phone has been disconnected so I thought this posted at 8 am & well, the day is almost over now but gotta keep up the tradition + I think we should be having these sorts of conversations allllll the dang time.) There’s so much I want to say about my feelings about this day but today is not about me or my feelings. I feel that it is about honoring the legacy of a man who fought so so so hard for things we STILL need to be fighting for. I hope you can read the full text today and keep his memory alive. ❤️ .

If you do not know the names of those written on this mural, google them or see some of the hashtags below. You can learn their names. Learn their stories. (They were fathers, mothers, sisters, brothers. Taken all too soon.) And continue to read books by authors who are not white to expand your mind’s eye when it comes to racial justice! Just go to your library! Books are free there!! #mlk #martinlutherking #art #streetart #clarionalley #blm #sayhisname #sayhername #charleenalyles #tamirrice #ericgarner #michaelbrown #shanteldavis #israelhernandez #sandrabland
