On Cleaving and Collapse

Reflecting upon the deep collective work done at Magical/Radical, I’ve been thinking, as I do, all the time it seems, about cleaving – and about togetherness, and what it’s going to take – what it’s really going to take for us to individually and collectively midwife this time of collapse.   And I’ve been thinking about having an online business,… Read more →

It Wasn’t A Protest, It Was A Parade: Notes from the Women’s March in PDX

With gratitude and appreciation to Margaret Jacobson and the other organizers.   Having All The Feelings about today’s ginormous women’s march in PDX. Seeing that many people, some hanging out of skyscraper windows waving flags gave me little of the hasta la victoria siempre-itis for a second and I got a little choked up. I saw a lot of people… Read more →

Signs of Solidarity

Last week a bunch of women (several I’ve only “met” on Instagram) gathered at my home to make some art that could be printed and posted in response to the racist, xenophobic and hateful rhetoric becoming increasingly common in the wake of the election. I called for submissions and we incorporated some of those suggestions into our works. Feel free to… Read more →

Artists For Love?

I have been asked to create artwork under the hashtag #artistsforlove, a self-described “movement” just launched by Flora Bowley + Kelly Rae Roberts. If you’ve been following me lately, you’ll see I’ve been up to my own collective art making in response to the dystopian hellscape unfolding before us in the wake of the election.   I want my little corner… Read more →

On Election Day

Whether you’re ignoring the spectacle, voting third party, canvassing door to door   Whether you’re with her or against her   Whether you’re collapse-conscious upgrading your starseed DNA awaiting alien abduction bingeing on Netflix or twirling your spindle stick over a pile of cattail tinder   Whether you’re mystified, enraged, or just straight faced emoji about the whole thing  … Read more →

I’ve Got an Indictment For You: Why Aren’t Internet Famous People Posting about Ferguson?

New-age and personal power transformational coach/entrepreneur/bloggers/people with a following PUT DOWN YOUR CRYSTALS, AND LISTEN UP. Take like five minutes between your next colonic and your core power yoga, sit your green smoothie-drinking, Lululemon-wearing ass down at your Twitter feed and ask yourself, WHY HAVEN’T I POSTED ANYTHING ABOUT THE CIVIL RIGHTS FIRE BURNING THROUGH AMERICA? At first I was… Read more →

Digital Nourishment & Evidence of Love

Your organism evolved to seek out and solve problems, consume sugar when available, and to avoid discomfort. These biological imperatives often conflict with modern life, as we have not evolved to process the amount of information, snack “foods” and years of sitting to which we’re exposed. Understand that the drive to “be informed” tilts toward bad news. That’s ok, it’s… Read more →

#OCCUPY

I’ve spent some time downtown at the Occupy Portland camp.  And I marched on October 5th.  It’s inspiring to see so many people joining together to reject an economic system that supports corporate personhood, bank bailouts, speculative debt mongering, and waging war on the poor.  FYEAH!  Here are some of my photos.  You can see the complete set on my… Read more →
