I Do Not Consent
It’s not ok~ To the women of my generation. To all who came before and all who come after, it’s not ok. I am ashamed to say that we have been raised in a world where we have been told “ this is how it is, get used to it” and conditioned to just accept it. Ashamed that young men are being brought up in a culture that teaches them to sexualize and treat women like they aren’t anything but a pretty play toy, eye candy to devour, trash to throw away when they’re done. So I am here to say enough. It’s not ok. It needs to stop. It ends with us.
A plea for the sea
Ring the alarm~ To whom it may concern, I write to correct a fatal mistake. My soul screamed when I learned the oceanic temperatures were rising and the once vivid coral reefs whispered betrayal through the waves. Tears fall as I think of those now displaced inhabitants swimming miles each day through a toxic sea searching for someplace safe and clean to breathe. I once saw a picture of a sea turtle saying, “ I thought my breakfast was a jellyfish... instead I almost choked to death on a plastic bag.” With the starfish story still fresh in my mind, I knew I wanted to make a difference even if it was small, I had to try. Their plea has reached my ears and is now mine to make heard. Their pain is deeply felt in my heart as I write these words. I am them and they are me. We are one, all of us connected to each other and the elements. Which is why I’m writing you, to say that this is out of hand and the time for change is now.
Love at first Sound~ I had never truly felt what I considered to be an out of body experience until the moment Bittersweet Symphony by The Verve first graced my ears. From the moment the violin intro began playing, no longer was I sitting in the floor of my dads living room in my pajamas but instead my soul had been sucked into the ending scene of cruel intentions and I was now Annette Hargrove. I could feel the wind whipping my hair as I sped down the highway in that flashy Jaguar convertible, shades on, breathing in sunlight and freedom. I sat with the tone of this moment wondering at its duality, it was both tragic and beautiful.
How old were you when you first woke up to the fact that you’d been living your life for everyone else but yourself? How long had the world been telling you exactly who you needed to be? Have you even met your true self yet? This is me really asking in my best smoky Absolem the caterpillar voice, “WHO ARE YOU?”
Now is Divine
How many of us wake up everyday and think, “ Today is the day I start living my dreams...” only to find ourselves years down the road in the same job, in the same city, with the same daily routine, doing exactly the opposite? How many of us are still waiting for the perfect time to do what our soul is calling us to do?————————————————————
What is Magic??
For centuries I feel the concept of magic has been highly scrutinized and most often misunderstood. Allow me if you will to shed light on what I feel true magic actually is... and how it can forever change our lives for the better.————————————————————
