Today in things I’d never in my life expected to think: if I could be anywhere in the world right now, it would be Iowa City.
Spotted @ the Brooklyn Botanic Garden!
Me: ::gestures excitedly while making inaudible exclamations::
Mal: Go ahead, take your picture, nerd.
Thanks for, yet again, hosting such a wonderful night Caits
Our women tonight! What light houses they are. Hammers. Megaphones. Safety blankets. Ukuleles. What slick fish and bright stars! Each reader brought a unique and special flavor to our big witches cauldron of magic. I am grateful beyond expression for their offerings of poems and energy, patience and vulnerability, beauty in joy. I am humbled by their choice to spend this night with me, and us and the sweet and generous audience. This is the world we want to create - rife with contributions to making a statement of love, openness and bravery.
Feeling inspired waiting for my turn at my first ever poetry reading - my nerves alleviated by hearing the incredible women who have gone before. I didn’t know I could feel proud of myself, but tonight I really do. May this feeling stay with me in the weeks to come!
That’s right…my undergrads will be watching Schoolhouse Rock’s “Fireworks” video on Monday because how else am I supposed to teach them about the Declaration of Independence? (Also, I have a seemingly great group so I’m sure they’ll be able to pick up on the fucked up and nationalistic way Schoolhouse Rock promotes American Values.
I mean…”the pursuit of happiness”? Really that’s how you want to portray it?
Also, what does it say about me that I’ve done close readings on my own of most of the Schoolhouse Rock videos? Like…the interjections song, nope.
Anxiety & Helping Someone Cope.
I didn’t want to make it overwhelming or too long remember, so I kept it to the main points that benefit me greatly when I’m experiencing an attack.
40 million of Americans alone suffer with anxiety; it’s a horrid feeling when you know someone just wants to help you but you cannot even construct a simple sentence at the time, so please share this in hope that it benefits even just 1 person. Muchos love.
