What art and politics have in common: some days it takes all your strength just to nudge a promising thing an inch or a few cms. in the direction you want it to go. You're just one person pushing as hard as you can at one thing. That has to be enough for today since the alternative is no effort and no motion. โ˜ฎ๏ธ

It's unfair as fuck that Capitalism means you can't make art or politics your whole life. It's unfair as fuck that you may not live to see in real time the beauty/justice you're struggling to make now. But unfairness is baked in and we're all forced to ingest it while we eat to live.

I appreciate you for what you're trying to get done, even when we fight, or when I don't understand it all. I really do. ๐Ÿ’š

@xenophora this is how I feel as a parent every day. Never sure if you push too much not enough wrong direction or something else. Sometimes you win sometimes you lose and just hope that i donโ€™t screw my kids up in the process.
