love for the black woman

July 13, 2016

Undervalued, overburdened from the moment you were born, They feel entitled to your life force even as you break and mourn. They feel entitled to your body, to your culture, to your voice; When you’ve been pulled apart by vultures weakness comes- you have no choice. And when you must be strong for everyone you […]

a new day

December 13, 2015

  I’m not a big fan of Christmas anymore for reasons that are obvious by now to people who know me,  and each year the pain of the humbug in my heart seems to grow just as I think it should be fading. This whole year was spectacularly shitty in various ways beginning perhaps symbolically with […]

a word, please

May 10, 2015

I love words. I love to play with words and pull them apart and put them back together as new words. As much as I love to make up words,  there are already such amazing words for everything you can possibly think of. Well… not everything… Petrichor is the word for the smell of the earth after it […]

brace yourselves…

March 5, 2015

When I started this journey about a year and a half ago, I had very little idea what a long, complicated and deeply emotional trip  it would be. Yesterday was our final day of filming.   Production of RAIN is officially wrapped and post-production can begin in earnest.   I cried and laughed and cried some more and then slept […]

RAIN

December 14, 2014

I have a vivid memory of what the weather was like exactly three years ago.  It was just like it is today. On December 14th, 2011, it was grey and drizzly all day long.  As the day went on it started to rain in earnest, and it didn’t stop for days and days. The 14th was the […]

exodus

November 18, 2014

darkness blows in swirling fast a backdrop for the lightning blast cloaked in robes of rolling wind the sky Herself starts to descend perfect horrifying wonder blast of light and crash of thunder wind explodes from everywhere as from volcanoes made of air others fled when she unfurled but I’ve grown weary of this world so […]

Make. Believe.

October 1, 2014

Last week I had the magically thrilling opportunity to meet interstellar trailblazer Nichelle Nichols (also known as the original Lieutenant  Uhura) in the flesh.   Considering all that has been going on with me of late, my first excited impulse was that I would of course meet her dressed in my costume from RAIN.   […]

thirst

September 11, 2014

There’s a tension in the air just before a hard rain.   That tension always gives me a headache.  It’s like the whole world is holding it’s breath trying not to scream and cry… but it needs to.  It really, really needs to just let it out. People love the sunshine of summertime,  but where […]

The Groot Crystal

September 2, 2014

[Disclaimer:  I’m sick this week, so this may well be the result of NyQuil induced delirium, or it may be a stroke of genius… or both.] I watched the Dark Crystal for like the 4 thousandth time yesterday and woke up this morning with a massive nerd epiphany. At the end of the Dark Crystal,  (spoiler alert […]

last transmission of Sheena the spacecat…

July 29, 2014

My name is Sheena and I am a transdimensional space kitty. I thought this was obvious, but apparently I need to explain. A couple weeks ago,  from the perspective of my peoplepets,  I “disappeared”. Peoplepets are silly creatures… stubborn and hard to train.    Somecats don’t even believe that peoplepets have feelings or souls at […]
