Serving up Throwback Thursday Realness, direct from Ferncroft Drive in Scarborough, Ontario, Canada. Complete with strawberry roots (pre-Red status), a big pink shirt (UC Berkeley) and my schnauzer, Pepper. Life was/is good.

But I digress: the energy (my energy?) during and since the eclipse is completely off the rails. I can’t verbalize it much further than that, nor do I want to. No matter; you’ll see. 😘

It’s Caturday, y’all!

Back in April I took in a stray kitten named Patty Mayonnaise who gave birth to four little chipmunks in my bathroom 24h later. Patty is still with us, but her four babies – Alvin, Brittany, Jeanette, and Eleanor – have since been adopted (in pairs) and are thriving in their new homes.

I’m lucky enough to be connected to their new families, who have been generous with pics and photos as the little ones grow up. Patty couldn’t be more proud. ♥️

1. Eleanor (now Beans)
2. Alvin (now Rice)
3. Rice n’ Beans (with mom @hayleyellenday)
4. Brittany
5. Jeanette
6. Brittany & Jeanette
7. Brittany being delicious

It’s not easy to churn out any semblance of “normal”, on social media or otherwise, considering the state of things. Posting cat pics and food porn and gratuitous photos of my partner seems tacky, trite, ignorant even. Should I be using this energy to March? Assemble? Educate? The ease and luxury of turning a blind eye, avoiding awkward conversations, carrying on as if the massive pink elephant in the room isn’t up in flames and screaming…. well, that’s a thing of the past. I’m cool with that.

That said, I still love my girl. I still enjoy delicious, visually stunning meals. I still take endless pics of my animal companions and can only assume you’re all as obsessed as I am. Maybe this trite stuff is a tool, maybe it’s a means to gather and grieve, maybe it’s a harmless distraction, maybe it’s a call to action, maybe it’s a connection to the tiniest sliver of normalcy we have left. I’m cool with all of that, too.

Yesterday I took a mental health day with my sister @jennyveganbrown and my girl @_hotfingas at @woodstocksanctuary to recharge my batteries and radiate/absorb some good, authentic love. Don’t forget it’s still there, fam. Right there in your guts. Where it always was; where it will always be. Use it.

Take care of yourself and the ones you love. We’re all we’ve got, but if we play our cards right, that’ll be more than enough.

My Caturday post will have to wait until tomorrow.

To quote my sister @melisseragogo: “Speak up. Smash Nazis. Raise up the voices of POC. Make sure people know where you stand. White silence is violence.”

Throwback to when I had a total fangirl meltdown at Kehlani’s show back in February upon meeting her two friends @edwardhajari and @_supimsam. I can’t guarantee I didn’t squeal and/or make a complete fool of myself. 🤷‍♀️

Also before you ask, I have absolutely no idea where the peace sign came from. I must have been channeling a nearby 13-year-old. 🤷‍♀️

Happy Full Moon/Partial Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius, y’all. All that hard work, introspection, manifesting, letting go, setting up and tearing down we’ve been doing is about to pay off. Big time. ⚡️

[Side note: finally saw Wonder Woman with my wonderful woman tonight and I know I’m late to the party but man, did I pick the right night to see it. ☄️☄️☄️]
