We have been prepping designs for our print party that is happening this Sunday. Here is one I whipped up. #mayday #wedidntcrosstheborderthebordercrossedus #migration #printmaking #screenprint #dignidadrebelde #danza
O Sleep! O warm death! O music silenced!
Your tired face falls in eternal defeat,
And in your step’s shadow, there blossoms a dream
Like a dark and nocturnal violet.
Faded perfumes and diminished stars
Come to life in the lucent pallor of your hand
Harbinger of hope, conqueror of pain
You make us as beautiful as the departed.
Renée Vivien / Translated by Andrea Perdue
"Your body is the piece of the universe you’ve been given." Geneen Roth
"…keep a running list of all the ways life delights you and helps you and energizes you. Describe everyday miracles you take for granted … the uncanny powers you possess … the small joys that occur so routinely you forget how much they mean to you … the steady flow of benefits bestowed on you by people you know and don’t know. What works for you? What makes you feel at home in the world?
