Day One + Two: California to Colorado
We left Los Angeles just as the sun rose on Saturday morning, a trek across the desert in the most intense sand storm I’ve experienced. Arizona’s red rocks were phenomenal occasionally I pulled over to get out and shoot photos of the horses, part of my excitement over them beyond their regal beauty may have been finally spotting life after so much rock and sand. 14 hours of driving,...

Road Trip 2011
I just realized I need to starting planning and packing for our road trip, I’ve been talking about it an awful lot, but thats really it all talk. My Grandma is in Northern California now making her way down to LA by Thursday or so. Here is where my head went: so much time spent in a car with quick stops everywhere I need super comfortable things to wear and shoes that slip off easily. A...
Girls Don't Run The World.
Dear Beyonce, I am sorry to break it to you Woman, but Girls Don’t Run The World, and that has never actually been the goal for the Women’s Rights Movement. In fact it has been a selfless fight for the equal respect and rights of Men, Women, and Children. I won’t completely blame you for this provocative production of seductive dance for an audience of men, to a song that is,...
I’m not sure when this whole thing started and I hadn’t planned on sharing, but this collection is growing, and I’ve realized I need to lay off Gap and JCrew and add a few more pairs of shoes other than my favorite wedge sandals. As I rise to the 12th floor in the elevator I take a shot of my reflection in the elevator doors. Dress/H&M, Cardigan/JCrew, Belt/Gap,...
She is one fierce lady, a brave women whom I admire. A Mother, a Grandmother, a feminist, an environmentalist, an adventurer, a social butterfly, a gardener, a crafter, a financial mastermind, a thrift shopper, a no-bullshit type a gal, a Gin drinker, a grocery store enthusiast, and one hell of a cook. For all of my life my Grandma has lived thousands of miles away from me, but has managed to...

Seriously / Love Monday
(photo via anthropology) I haven’t been on airplane since November for Ernesto’s Ganas 2020 show in San Francisco. And somehow between then and now my trusty ‘week long suite case’ has been destroyed, getting a new one has been in the back of my mind lately as I have two full trips planned, the first beginning at the end of this month. I’ve decided after seeing a...
I Love You Mom!
(8-month old me, Central Park, New York City - September 1987) Happy Mother’s Day to the courageous woman who brought me into this world.
The Privilege of Ignorance →
Imagine the level of privilege of a white male possibly the highest level on the spectrum so blissful in that blind ignorance. mindbabies: anarchoautie: Something people who talk about privilege don’t talk about much: Part of your majority privilege is the luxury of being ignorant. I have heard so many times “I didn’t know strobe lights were problematic”. Really? REALLY?? I do not...
The Killing of Osama is No Victory!
He was a terrible man but he did have very close ties to the Bush family…and they decided to off him when he became useless to the Empire. I don’t understand why people are celebrating this as if their favorite team won the Superbowl. Killing Osama doesn’t bring the victims of 911 back. Imagine if all the Native Indigenous peoples of this so-called country where to start...
