No matter what, even if we are opposed forces in the world, I would wish for each human being to be able to love themselves, actively.
No matter how vile other people could be.
A lot of situations could be alleviated by focusing on the basics and then showing you care, first about your self and then outward.
And it's not always going to match up. It's life.
It's worth it to me as long as I am accepting of myself unconditionally, and loving myself
And of course, respecting others
This is Your moment
Hold it cherish it
Always remember who you are
You have to be careful what you see as power
You have to be careful what you access

Something I didnt piece together until today: The Haymarket situation in Chicago was closely after the great Chicago Fire. Both extremely monumental shifts for a lot of people in the world, not to mention this book I've completed on Voltairine's life
Hong Kong, Chicago, Organization Vs Assimilation
So I'm in the library. This news article I'm reading and then seeing this photo I just let out a tearful exhale, with tears.
There are parallels that connect with what is happening in my city and Hong Kong.
It's different, though the feeling is the same: our home we love is being eroded by powerful forces, and we won't give that up for anything.

Here is what i have just learned about being an artist in your city that makes music:
you have to take care to define boundaries with each person you meet, because a lot of people want to be themselves and with me all the way though I am not looking at all for the stories we often gear towards each other and seek out others for roles
Art is hard work.
I'm living my life this way for a lot of reasons. I'm performatively not a lot of things people expect and i wont bs
I have set a purpose.
