My questions are these:  How can we make a difference?  How can we embody systemic change at a local level?  How do we not burn out? How can we enjoy our lives while simultaneously fighting violence, destruction and collapse?  What can we do in our communitie...

Sounds waft through the walls and windows

Air touches my skin

The bitter, earthy taste of coffee awakens my mouth 

Breath comes in, and out.

As I let my inner gaze follow my breath, my body responds.

On the exhale, my muscles contract in a gentle twist, that turn...

The ancestral journey is not glamorous. 

It is slow. It is hard. It is elusive and mysterious. It is rainy and cold, and full of crumbling stone walls and broken hearts.  At least for me.

But it takes me to the river’s edge on my birthday, to sit on tree trunks carv...

Recently, I received official notification that the decision has been made to grant me citizenship in Latvia. I have a number. I am a citizen of this land. I belong here.  The place of my ancestors. Holy shit.

Forgiveness for the rushed release

Forgiveness for the men who push...
