Keeping the description on this one brief so I can be sure to post it before too much time elapses. It's a quieter, stationary Ramble because these are hectic times, and I think it's a good idea to take a deep breath to get through them intact.
I'm pretty sure this installment either implicitly or explicitly references some of these things:
- The Wayward Residency
- Hélène Cixous's essay Coming to Writing
- Nuns and Nones
- Dream Defenders' broadcast Unlock Us, Abolition in Our Lifetime
- Laura Olin's newsletter
- Shing Yin Khor's Oraclebird Livestream (Tuesdays 2-4PST, ish)
And if you haven't seen on social media: I'm currently mailing fancy prints to anyone who donates to The Black Resilience Fund, an amazing aid network set up by two Black leaders here in Portland. Suggested minimum donation of $20, but honestly I'll mail you a print for contributions of any size. Here's the art you get in exchange (my first time getting to use gold foil!):
Just email me ([email protected]) a screenshot of your receipt along with a good mailing address and I'll get one sent out to you.
Be good to each other, and remember that we all have a part to play in dismantling the structures that harm us.
