hi all, just wanted to do a linkie linx to the ovarian psychos piece recently posted in the atlantic. there had been a few fundraiser screens and talks, at least in the bay area, and i’m sure actively in southern california for their documentary, so it is very cool seeing them in larger platforms for everyone to learn about it.
upcoming chance to catch it on PBS soon:
the full film will air on march 27, 2017, on pbs’s Independent Lens.
^ video from the recently march 22nd posted link from The Atlantic’s: Ovarian Psycos: The L.A. Bicycle Crew for Women of Color.
have a nice weekend — m.
this morning on mi way to work
i unintentionally forgot mi phone at home
love when that happens,
must be the effect of waking up stiff as a board
paper, imagine, write, talk, meditate.
paper. computer. pixels pixels pixels.
a few phone numbers i know by memory
others, written down.
days ago i crossed the international border in a vehicle twice
for the first time since 45th
the vibe is heavy.
the air, and fear,
i just can barely carry.
i missed mi cat velcro deeply
only for a few days, i know
had the chance to meet an adorable tijuana coffee shop cat
her name is linda,
what a friendly kitty.
i had a breakfast with a close and loved relative
the tensions and worries from neighboring countries
holding hands in sunlight, brightness,
and quite tighter in the dark.
spent time with mi favorite high schooler
youth is so difficult, yet so beautiful. mostly.
introduction to poetry, high school literature
what a time to be open
to discover, devour the world.
resist, read, recharge, rest, organize, repeat.
i love lila downs SO much.
it has been such a privilege to see her sing and perform live several times, what a beautfiul experience. seeing her post about this concert made mi friday morning. hope you enjoy it (approx. 21 minutes)
happy friday. friday the 13th. we’ve made it. =°•°=
× set list y other info here: npr tiny desk january 13th 2017.
a healthy new year 2017 to you + your family/your person/your loved ones.
grieving for all those beautiful souls in our bay area arts/community, in the oakland fire this last weekend. and thinking about their loved ones,
i have no words.
thank you patti for your art, your words.
this is beautiful.
