This morning while I was at the gym, my Dad texted me: “We arrived in Montreal on Wednesday, June 3rd, 1959 at 9:30am on the Ship Batory; arrived by train in Toronto at 10:00pm.”

The pic you see above was the last view my family in Poland had of my Grandparents Edziu and Wanda and their three sons Tadeusz, Janusz, and Juliusz. On May 20th, 1959 at 8:00pm, my father and his family sailed from Gdynia, Poland to Montreal, Canada on the good ship Batory.

How courageous his parents were to brave the unknown with three young boys in tow, and all their possessions in a wicker basket. And how humbled am I.

Get used to it. 🤗

“We should indeed keep calm in the face of difference, and live our lives in a state of inclusion and wonder at the diversity of humanity.” – @georgehtakei

Facts Friday: Massive, Eye-rolling Disconnect Edition. 🙄

Meat Eating Environmentalist? No such thing. Love animals, but eat them? That’s not love. Breeding for slaughter? Not a “personal choice” at all. Check yourself; check your morals and values; check to see if you’re truly living according to them.

I’m happy to help. 💁

“Animals do have a voice, if you ignore their suffering I will remind you of it. If you don’t understand them, I will translate. If you don’t hear them, I will be their voice. You may silence them, but you cannot silence me as long as I live.” -Anita Mahdessian

Throwback Thursday? I got you.

Circa 2000. Dance party at Don Hill’s. I think it was a Thursday night. That’s yours truly on the left looking like a goddamn tater tot, my main Astra being Astra on the right, and college sister Amy shining bright like a diamond between us.

I barely remember this night, and somehow I’ll never forget it. 🤘🏼

Three #wcws in one pic (that’s what happens when you surround yourself with magical women), but only one gets the crown: Happy (day-late) Earth Strong to @gemmafleming, camera maven, vegan warrior princess, sister-wife extraordinaire. 👑

Gemma, thank you for being such a bright, bold, beautiful example of what a woman is capable of when she puts her heart in front without apology. I’m so grateful, so excited that I get to take this ride with you, undergarments notwithstanding.

Related: Happy Supermoon in Gemini, fam. It’s a great time to take a good long look at yourself and appreciate what’s working. 🌕

Pretty sure this #tattoosday speaks for itself. A little piece tucked away by my brother @phillipwolves to commemorate some of my favorite methods of self-discovery, connection, expression, healing, and meditation.

It’s going to be a beautiful summer… 😉

Over the weekend I reunited with one of my all-time favorite people over tacos and drinks at @jajajanyc. I couldn’t be more grateful for @klwacker’s authenticity, her friendship, her sense of adventure ….and her taste in food. Can’t wait to conquer the summer with you, sister. ♥️

The company was only rivaled by the cuisine, atmosphere, beverages and service at @jajajanyc: #mealcrushmonday is a major understatement. Absolutely some of the best vegan food I’ve had. Looking very much forward to tackling the rest of the menu.

[Clockwise from top left: Shroom, Cauliflower Veracruz, and Chayote “Fish” Tacos. All vegan and gluten free. 😍]
