(personal prayer// don’t take this personal) This year has been the hardest/ most important of my life Leaving california ,my friends and my family to seek a new life of balance &sustainability for me and my son Navigating the ever changing waters of being a single mother in a way that feels authentic to me Learning how to create space for myself as a woman and artist Starting to put one foot back in the door of picking up where I left my work and passions pre pregnancy Buying a tiny house and starting a life in a place where I didn’t know a soul Healing and tending my relationship with my mother Healing and tending my relationship with my ex partner and building the light we want to exude for our son Rediscovering my sexuality after having a child Falling deeply in love with a man whom spoke of marriage and his deep love for my son only to be completely discarded by him almost overnight ( that was a rough one ) Started smoking cigarettes again ( the worst addiction I’ve ever known) Finally completely quitting them ( almost two weeks strong now! accepting light and love and all forms of support) Discovering I have an auto immune disease with no cure ( psoriasis) Just battling and loving and learning and giving and feeling so empty only to wake with my heart so full again and again. My work this year has been learning to be open to my own suffering. Overcoming my fear of the mess pain causes. Looking into the lions mouth and realizing that it’s actually the truest path towards my higher self. Pain is the fast track towards human evolution if you can find the courage to accept it. I’m still learning this/allowing this muscle to flourish. I wake every day to the light of my beautiful son and in the next moment hear stories of the earth burning and people deeply hurting and toxic old paradigms still having a strong hold on the human heart. It feels like too much sometimes. It’s so easy to be overwhelmed by your inability to change anything in this world. Just the

The practice of using a camera allows me to constantly be considering what is holy and what is in front of me. Regardless of how time dresses my experience in loss or gain. The flesh of the matter , the naked truth will always remain. And I think this is what pushes me to use a camera , or my words or my body to dance light/ meaning into the moment. To help me see what is holy and what is really there in front of me. I’m glad I can share these things but in reality it’s a deeply personal practice of trying to be present. Not just to my human body or it’s limited experience here but present to my own divinity and grace. So I guess thank you for being part of my practice and witness to my journey thus far.

/the boys of my youth/I wish it had been said how bad you were in bed and how I left you breathless reaching your 5th or 6th climax of the day and how you left me wetting my fingers to feed myself I kept thinking your pleasure was enough that somehow your ecstasy could be transmuted to me what a strong held game of the patriarchy calling bluff on our divinity masking their inadequacy simply by refusing to learn the eloquent language of the female body I refuse to engage with sexually monolingual men I refuse to teach my son the“ drive thru” sex culture I was raised with. And gentleman , now is your time , in so many ways , to shed the clothes that have suppressed your human heart and run naked into that wild forest of true intent. I believe in you. I will stand by you as you crawl out of that cave you were raised into. I will gladly answer any and all questions you have on this journey back to your divine. And I love you. #sacredsexuality #callingyououtwithlove #sexualawakening #notallboysturntomen

An ode to the memo my son will never read I open a book I see what I use to see a shape that looks like a man In a children’s story It says “ he is wearing a red hat” But I stop And look toward my son And I see two eyes That have yet to define That simple shape And it hurts my heart And confounds me How immense the unlearning of oppressive languaging Can be So I look again And what I see is a person With clothes on And I tell my son They are wearing a red hat They are looking at a cat They are wearing blue jeans Together We are learning a gender neutral vocabulary That can allow all of the world to be seen. These are the small steps I’m taking as a single white cis mother of privilege to free the human heart from any and all means of oppression . I know it’s not a lot. But I wanted to share. Because every little piece counts in this grand equation of changing the world together. #nonbinary #gnc #trans #intersex #transrightsarehumanrights #protecttranskids #iwontletyoubeerased

—how did I get so lucky— to be this little golden hearts number one lady —— he swings his arms tightly around my neck and tells me “ mama I’m so proud of you , your so brave “ and then runs off and allows me time to melt into a thousand puddles. I must have said that to him a hundred times but he says it to me like it’s his original creation. Like his mind cooked up something so beautiful for me he can hardly find his breath to share. And it never gets old. All we both do is grow and grow and grow and still , he stops time with his being , every time.

If I had to write an epitaph in this moment it may be this. Or what I want to press deeply into every growing human heart. This equation is always balanced from the inside out. Not from depleting your own precious self. I’ve literally torn my heart open from the inside out just to keep giving to people and situations that didn’t respect my worth/ my heart/ my being. I wish someone, a little birdie had whispered this into my ear as a 14 year old girl on the wild journey of becoming. So here I am. Think of me as a tiny bird that lands for three seconds on your shoulder and sings something sweetly into your ear. A melody you won’t have to try and remember because your body will naturally do that for you. Such is the wild art of innate medicine. All you have to do is listen.

Today was a beautiful day. Also discovering new music is a gift from the universe. @sashaspielberg aka @buzzytunes made a beautiful EP. This track is called “facepaint” and it really brought something out of me today. Shall I post the whole dance on my IGTV? Does anyone watch those things ? Can I just start doing improvised dance pieces as an actor ? Will it become my next street corner gig ? Oh dear hearts I hope so.

Where you can wear nipple tassels and sequined undies and a cape and still be deeply loved and supported and seen. I love you Monk and Skye and Aspen so much. Can we please find time to get lost together soon? This was taken during a photo adventure or rather a life adventure, using cameras to express our purpose .

Self less no more. Self ish is not a sore word you apply to a wound but a salve to the burn of non reciprocal giving. Selfie with my phone. The phone a device I hold like a sword to my own tending. It’s clumsy. And occupies too much of my time. It’s sharp in the way it cuts invisible lines inside of me. And yet and still , I wield. I wield. And bend. To allow it room to point me in the direction of my own healing. A social virus. A tool of my own lifetime. A lifeline in the open sea of the human condition. I feel like my time with it is almost done. Selfish. Self love that puts the phone down when I’m looking for connection. And I simply look within. Almost my love. Almost there.

Becoming a mother is mostly about learning to mother yourself. Which has taken me 2 and half years to truly realize. Caring for yourself in such a deep and authentic way that there is a natural surplus in how it extends out of your body. When I mother for others there is always a depletion that doesn’t get addressed. It’s a wild and holy practice. Letting my maiden grow into her own mother. Loving myself so deeply that loving others is simply a reverberation of that self love. A practice. A constant exploration where curiosity thrives and conclusions fall away. I’d love to hear from others on this journey. 📸 by @aliyanaumoff a million years ago in nyc.

I want to hear your story. Your silence is a wound worth healing. The world is listening. Finally. We , the people, have the power to change the collective story we are passing down to our children. I’ve recently learned about a website that is collecting stories you share ,anonymously or publicly , however you want to tell it. Amassing a narrative of truth that can change the world as we know it. If you are survivor of sexual assault and have lived with that weight too long I wanna offer you safe space to reclaim your voice. Please follow the link in my profile. #hearusnow Thank you @amberheard for making me aware of such important and timely movements.

Depression, sadness, hurt, pain, loneliness , fear..... all these are only words that carry half of the real definition of what it means to truely live in these states of being. The real all encompassing word we are searching for is : AWAKENING. Be gentle with your processes in this. Honor the greater teacher in these temporary states that are only pushing us into a higher state of being / awakening/ becoming.

Mama, how do I learn to forgive someone? Oh my darling , first you must begin the journey of loving yourself. That’s where you can truly learn how to forgive another, by forgiving and really loving yourself. —— With tears just falling and falling down my face , it’s with love and grace , that I can finally let my own forgiveness touch my own face. Swaying here , in the only arms Ive ever needed , love is just pouring out of me and on to all the ones that I’ve let hurt me. And in turn I have hurt so greatly. I see you. I love you more now then I ever have. And I forgive you. I accept where you are. And I’m rooting for your light in whatever form it takes you on the journey ahead. I’ve had such incredible teachers this year. Thank you for being such clear mirrors of the work that had been left undone. I love you and this journey back to my center.

Stay curious. I guess that’s all I could say. Curious enough to want to press yourself deeply into the wet parts of the earth. Into the spiders’ web that may lead you to a higher nook in a tree. Into the woman seated next to you. Into the hard part of the chair. Press and ask questions. And share. Share. Share. You are the only person capable of telling your story. Stay curious and tell that tale beautifully well.

I’ve seen you fight your path bravely , walk it kindly and meet each new turn with such grace and ease. I’ve seen the wildness of your heart and your curiosity and courage grow into dear friends. Ive counted your fingers and freckles and bruises with you. I have cried with you and fought with you. And I have loved you deeply before you were even born. The world is not just a better place with you in it but it is a world that will be changed by having you in it. Forever and always your ally in this. Happy 21st dear woman. I hope you get shit faced with those that can mirror that gorgeous light. I love you. Your big sis.

These were photos I took casually , as I most often do. All of these images were shot on the same roll of 35mm film in my film camera. I’ve included a few others from the roll to show you whose eyes were behind the lens. They are currently posted on Ethan Delorenzo’s professional website claiming that they are his work. Unfortunately he won’t credit me as the rightful owner nor will he take them down. I don’t understand the need to post other artists work as your own. Though I do understand the delicate process of two people coming together and sharing moments and then deciding to end their relationship. I paid for every roll of film he shot, developed them for him, we used each others cameras occasionally and I most definitely asked him to take images of me that I couldn’t take myself. No matter the reason of his for posting them there is no shame in this action. Only in the lack of action once the mistake has been brought to his attention ( 4th time just this year). Please rightfully credit these photos and many other photos ( not posted here but I can if clarification is needed)that are mine on your website. It’s the very least any artist deserves. Thank you.

With love and respect I gotta ask you to stop posting images I’ve taken and telling people they are your own. There are few photos on your website which I took with my own fingers and hands and heart. I don’t mind you posting and giving credit. But trying to sell them and say they are yours is just wrong. Thanks Ethan.

I love you here , there and yesterday// You are not afraid to wear your underwear to the beach Or stand tall and silent Or laugh at anything that comes your way Your hands are always tending and mending And when they reach for me I too benefit From their healing Your eyes are not just windows To your soul But a vessel whole and complete You don’t take up any of my room And yet You always make room For me. ————

Looking back thru all my behind the scenes photos from film sets. This taken on location at Shiprock , NM. On a strange and wild film called “ Bottom of the World”. Shall I make a small book of my girl gaze behind the cinematic lens?

I don’t want a summer bod , the abbreviation sticks to the roof of my tongue and chokes out my own good taste. I want a mountain body. I want hair that brushes itself by the wind. I want legs full of landmarks . I want a belly full of food. I want my skin like a small farm that chops and drops and trusts the dirt and the chaos and leaves the beauty to the birds. I want soft moss growing where it can , when it can. I don’t want to be bare , with no hair that holds water in the hot parts of the day. I want rocks that crumble around me and edges that require discipline out of me. I have no need for managed perfection. i look towards heaven growing in my back yard and I lay down in my mud and accept each grass laceration on my skin. I don’t want a summer body. I want four seasons of flesh as I grow stronger and freer within.

You are dirt. You are the flower of the season and the thorn of the past. You are flesh and blood and bone. You are human and you act inhumane. Today is dying and tomorrow will always remain.

I’ve never been afraid to dive into the deep end. It’s with age and grace that has lead me back to swallow waters , toes first, ankles, knees , slowly entering, mid thigh , whole thigh, my hips ,my belly , slowly now , with my breath and my breasts , my shoulders , my lips , my head and now my hair wet. Slow is the new mode of reckless abandon. Slow and steady.

Between my son and the moon There’s no kindness in forgetting The hard rock we are all living on We have lost too many to the silence Of suffering while selling This cover up Of a life worth living We have gained nothing From showing our constant best face The knife of politeness Has done well to shield And shame our pain And yet and still There is always the simple miracle of breathing Life Back Into the cracks Of being human One seen and shared moment at a time I’m here for you You are here for me Ask anything of my empathy And I will try and meet you there With understanding /// small thoughts on hidden suffering and making emotional trauma cool again

If I gave you the moon , it wouldn’t be enough to light the path we are on together. If I gave you the sun , it would never be enough to describe the simple warmth that spreads between our finger tips. And If I gave you my everything, even that wouldn’t be enough to show you how much of mine is yours. So instead my sweet boy I will give you my word. That my heart is yours forever. To seek comfort and rest in , to break boundaries and mend your bones within. A mother’s vow of eternal love. That invisible cradle that holds you no matter what. Happy birthday Ode. I love you.

I see your human. No matter how bad it gets. I will always try and see your human. Not just your hurt or outbursts. Or the constant verbal punishments. Or the mom shaming. Or even when you threaten to not let me see my son on his own birthday. I see your human. And I am trying to love and respect you no matter what.

—-INSTALIVE SHOE SHOW ON SATURDAY AT 5pm PST —-Free. Freestyling. Improvisation. Getting away for a moment from the preconceived and getting lost in the unfolding moment of your tongue. I love this holy space so much. Gearing up for some very special shows this weekend ( tickets and info in bio) I’d love to hear from you about stories and words and ideas that you need help articulating into the world. An improvisational writer uses what is around them to create. I’d love to be surrounded by you all. Share! And I’ll pick a few to write a song about. Dm me ❤️❤️❤️

Today, at @skylightbooks at 5pm, let’s all sit and listen to the new visions you’ve brought back from that edge. I’m so proud of you. And love your way in this world so very much.j

I am trying sweet boy. Sometimes I feel like they should have given you to a monastery or a flock of wild birds or a better cook. Sometimes I feel so unprepared. So uninspired. It’s very easy to not feel good enough for your magical and testing spirit. You, my gorgeous boy, are almost two years old. And this time between us is full of challenges I’ve never known. Full of the purest joy I have ever felt. You make me a better human being, just having experienced being yours. Be patient with mama. I love you so much.

Sooooooo we, the shoe , have been patient with the mystical return of that pulse from above. That mystic muse that grabs you by the panties and won’t let you sleep. She has been calling me closer to create new music. But in a new way. So we are doing some shows in May. All of which will be “ song writing sessions” of a sort. Trying to record a fully live album, pulled straight from that unknown madness that keeps us all woke and hungry. Some in Los angles of course, where my band husband lives. And some on a tiny island in the Puget Sound. All will be telestreamed somehow. So keep watching , listening, staying attune. Send me ideas. I’d love to collaborate across screens. So much love. As big as mountains. #theshoereturns Check out the link in my bio for show info

The earth, or so I envision, deeply values obstacles to grow against. Somehow she always finds her way , no matter how strange things have become around her. I’ve always been called to industrial ruin. It’s deep in my Nevada blood I suppose. I realized today that’s it’s not the man made structures that have caught my eye but rather the delicate coil that nature creates despite the ruin. And always she has been my greatest teacher when I’m lost to my true self , my greatest mirror to real beauty and awe and forever and always my adventure partner , leading me deeper off the path and closer to divine. Happy earth day y’all. Thanks @domwolczko for capturing me in my happy place.

In a field of plenty , you grow with ease ,close to the things that feed you .Growing closer to the ones you love. Allowing what nourishes in and what diminishes to pass through. Find your field and grow there. In bloom and in dormant wait, I’m over the moon I’ve found my place. With you by my side. I love you.

There’s something so small and simple about sharing genes and blood and trauma and experience with some one. So simple it blows my mind the depths that grow there. Today my sister told me she was proud of me and the person I’ve become. These words were like a holy balm to my soul. Roles reverse. And age is meaningless when you share the same emotional landscape.i love you monk. And the amazing woman you have become.
