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”

Scotland Scribbles

The little train takes us far away for the day. Just a ways down the track one can find the water. A sweet escape from the runnings of regular things. I can taste the ocean, while winds roughen rosy cheeks and slip through shoulders shuddering in the cold. But still it is beautiful. Tiny racksContinue reading “Scotland Scribbles”

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”

Budapest babbles

Warmth hits like the summer night we haven’t felt in a while. Little white hats bob up and down, teeny hammers tinker outside the glass of the bus window we travel through. They are building. And we are brought into a little world where runaways have come to set up shop. Revitalizing ruins, music playsContinue reading “Budapest babbles”

Letting go

I feel there is this duality that we face as humans. On one end, we crave validation. Oftentimes, we strive for success in other fields because of the foolish belief that when we get there, we will finally have the approval of those who have been withholding their love, fully and wholly, for so long.Continue reading “Letting go”

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. We cannot give voice to some discrimination while the rest is left in the dark. Let’s work to change this. WARNING: Suitable for mature readers only. TheContinue reading “Thoughts on black trans women during Black Lives Matter movement”

Thoughts on peace during a protest

As is essential to preface, it’s hard to know exactly what to say and do during this time. There is the fear that someone more experienced, more knowledgeable, more influential might come up and label the ideas you put forth as “right” or wrong.” But the more this occurs, the more I recognize this labelingContinue reading “Thoughts on peace during a protest”

Munich musings

Spinning slowly to see magnificent spires from so far down, as ghosts slip through the spaces between my hands like the breeze. Empty now, I can picture cartwheels in my head and I wouldn’t touch a thing. But people were here once, uncomfortably so, shoving each other to claim some space for themselves if onlyContinue reading “Munich musings”

The soul of a place

The more I travel, the more I am quite certain that every place I visit has a soul. You can feel the energy pulsing through the moment you step off the plane. Moving to Santa Barbara, I remember this feeling. I knew it was exactly the place where I was supposed to be. A greatContinue reading “The soul of a place”

Moroccan musings 2

Staring into gold, a door as though I drank the vial in wonderland, when all around me there were none. Intricate royals, sophisticated spheres, impressive teals crafted with careful hands to lure us here, when for hours, staring through a dirty window, I had seen none. Villages surely abandoned in my mind until I sawContinue reading “Moroccan musings 2”
