The South African adventure: Jozi to Cape Town

I’m so in love and awe with the group convened in Johannesburg, and say that without exaggeration. The group (the reason I was beckoned here in the first place) was made up of brilliant minds from around Africa, South Asia, primarily, and each does such important work to address such large issues in the world, puts so […]

A neighbor found this little angel near Midway w no tag/chip a week ago. She also can't keep her much longer. Anyone know this little dumpling's people? Or perhaps could care for her, maybe for the long-haul if her people don't turn up? She's mighty sweet.

The South African adventure: Dakar to Johannesburg

DAKAR, SENEGAL– Most of the passengers on the flight from DC to Dakar left the plane, leaving only a handful of us who were continuing on to Johannesburg. I was feeling fucked up by time zones by that point, but was determined to power through. I made myself stop doing the math to consider what […]

The South African adventure: Chicago to Dakar

CHICAGO– I’ve been working on my air travel anxiety. I can’t stand being enslaved to fears or phobias, and while I haven’t let said air travel anxiety stop me from doing anything, per se, I also really wanted to bust through that and open it all up to perhaps even unseen possibilities. There were milestones in […]

The goal-setter’s dilemma

When it comes to things I want to do/achieve/experience, I have long gone the route of dogged persistence, holding on to the belief that it will happen because I believe it will, that I’ll find a way and figure it out and negotiate my way through, course-correcting on the fly to keep my eye on […]

On being anti-busy (lessons I learned the hard way)

To be “busy” in our modern world carries with it something like a badge of honor, a stake in the ground about mattering and about personal strength and resilience, and is a complete fucking farce that’s doing more harm than good. And, I reject it.

This year, I’ll trick my brain into loving winter

In wintertime, a lot of people find themselves on a spectrum ranging from diagnosed Seasonal Affective Disorder to bouts of wintertime blues and blahs, and I’m no exception. Early winter is pretty and novel, but by late January, after months of very little exposure to sunlight, it’s hard for some people to stay productively motivated some days, hard […]

#TakeBackTheWeb

As part of the documentary and multimedia project I’m working on, I’m launching another arm of it, and it is one we can all share. Using hashtag #TakeBackTheWeb, I’m asking people to go to Instagram to reclaim the hurtful or threatening words they/we have received online. Maybe you’d like to write the hurtful tweet/comment on a piece of paper and take […]
