Is salvation through art ever possible?
Articulation can be your armor and your weapon; but what of the lost ambiguities is worth mourning in the aftermath?
When will we better connect to and utilize our psychic capabilities?
How can we better crash and burn the systems that are hurting us (and the whole planet)?
Do different peoples tears taste differently?
Is there a way to extend our caring for those we don't know more effectively?
How do you define knowing a person?

gratitude for @lilboosie_playcousin & all the other organizers of today's gathering to address the epidemic of missing black & brown, girls & women; as well as the rising attacks on queer POC in this country. Pictured here: youth empowerment advocate & CEO @legaceekares1 talks about her personal experiences growing up in NYC, & the responsibility we all have to stay alert and on the look out for each other, and especially young women of color. 🤜 Break down bystander culture, talk to people, ask them if they are ok and keep talking about the ones the media forgets #bringbackourgirls#blacklivesmatter#blacktranslivesmatter#whitesilenceequalsviolence
🏻 Being a white person who has lived in manhattan's chinatown since I was 10, I have always felt sensitive to how I fit into equations of gentrification for this neighborhood. I talk to my neighbors, I support local chinese business & I make efforts to give back to the culture that is not my own but that I love, respect & live alongside. ---
On Elizabeth st btwn grand & broome there is a cobbler with an outdoor workshop, I have gotten my shoes fixed by him for years. Better than his unbeatable prices, is his wall of art you get to look at while waiting for your repairs. He makes watercolors and pencil drawings and pastes them to the wall of his workspace. He is a generous and precious asset to this community as well as a great artist.
Fuck this TOY jerk who thought it would be so cool to catch his tag all over this mans art. This kind of action to me, cuts right into how gentrification is hurting Chinatown right now, how it comes from a sense of entitlement to space. I don't want to stoop down into everything I could assume about the kind of inconsiderate fucboi who thought this was cool - but if this asshole is reading this, or you cute graffiti white boys see this as something you would probably do without a second thought, know that we see you and that you're as shitty and fake as this new Pepsi add
I know there are bigger things to be upset about right now, but these microaggressions come from the same attitude as hate crimes and real violence. They deserve to be called out when we see them. ---
If you ever need your shoes fixed downtown, this man if your guy
🖤 such a pleasure being shot alongside a bunch of brilliant bright eyed ones for @anothermagazine

When it comes to the dilemma of how one constructs their diet, I keep an open mind. I know access to ingredients or even the time to cook for oneself is tied to ones financial positioning. I know different bodies require a different balance of sustenance to feel good. We are often berated with contradictory studies showing what is and isn't "healthy" - not to mention constantly also being told how to look... I also believe that the emotional, effects the physical, and that sometimes eating something "unhealthy" that makes you happy, can have more illusive positive impacts on your health. I am a vegetarian, trying to consume animal products with awareness. I don't believe in sticking to any set of dietary rules as dogma, but I do believe it a major fault of humanity to rely so much on the exploitation of animals When we look at how the industrialization of animals for consumption in a state of global overpopulation, effects the worlds ecosystem & adds to the issue of climate change - exploring ways to cut animals and animal products out of your diet is a really easy way to decrease your carbon footprint If you, like a lot of people, including myself, are scared by the changes the current republican regime are making to dismantle the EPA and years of effort pushing policies to protect the planet from devastation - DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT & change how you exist in your own personal relationship to this planet #vegetarian#friendsnotfood
thinking about the incredible art of @norauls on this rainy day
