Living a Meaningful Life

What it truly means to live an authentic and meaningful life has become obscured. Advertisers know this. Their very existence depends on it. They play on our primitive fears of not being “good enough.” They prey on our foolishly egotistical longings for more money, more materials, more of anything and everything beyond what we currentlyContinue reading “Living a Meaningful Life”

Returning to your routine

Within the last few weeks, I’ve grown busy in other aspects of my life. I’ve gotten a new job or two. But in doing so, I’ve found that I’ve consistently neglected my regular routine. There are certain things that I like to do each day, as well as commitments I’ve made to myself that haveContinue reading “Returning to your routine”

Hey now. You’re a plan star. Get your plan on, go plan.

Ever intend on being productive and then find yourself at the end of the day asking just what happened? Good. Keep reading. Some say that scheduling our lives is an extremely limiting way to go about one’s day. But if we were to look closely, we’d see that just the opposite is true. If weContinue reading “Hey now.

Thoughts on black trans women during Black Lives Matter movement

Black lives matter. This includes transgender black women who are arguably the most marginalized in our society. Their deaths have not been given the media attention they deserve.

TheContinue reading “Thoughts on black trans women during Black Lives Matter movement”

Munich musings

Spinning slowly to see magnificent spires from so far down, as ghosts slip through the spaces between my hands like the breeze.

But people were here once, uncomfortably so, shoving each other to claim some space for themselves if onlyContinue reading “Munich musings”

A beautiful flag stands in front of it, covering it up. But now there are holes poking through, piercing light against a backdropContinue reading “Not one for politics”

Thoughts on peace during a pandemic pt. 2

To accept the current state of things, whatever that may be. Perhaps this is the solution. A way to bring about peace. If we are at home, confined to the couch due to a deadly disease in our midst, let it be so. How have we always wanted to spend such a luxury of time?Continue reading “Thoughts on peace during a pandemic pt. 2”

Universal tidings

This year was supposed to be the big travel year for me. Up until last month, your girl was running around Europe but had to come home because of the Corona. I suppose it’s hard to write anything without the virus creeping back up into the seam-work of things. It’s everywhere, permeable in all conversations.Continue reading “Universal tidings”
