09.09.18//: this month is going to push me. new challenges at work, new role as sexuality educator with youth at my church, full calendars, limited time, new responsibilities and opportunities to grow and learn. ya’ll, I am uncomfortable. and that’s okay. trying to cultivate calm. nourish confidence. hush my imposter feelings. and reside in the faith that I am capable, worthy and loved beyond measure. #claimitgood#lezdothis#queerfemme#faithinaction
09.05.18//: three years ago, surrounded by our community, we exchanged rings, said vows, and committed to love each other with our full hearts. it still is one of my favorite days, rivaled only with our first date. for nearly ten years, we’ve been choosing one another. each and every day. showing up. changing, evolving, challenging and loving each other fiercely. partnership isn’t always easy, but I honestly wouldn’t change a thing. thank you for always being in my corner. for being my number one cheerleader and confidant. love you endlessly. happy anniversary babe. we doing it. #claimitgood#thetripathiclarks#queerlove#farmerswife
08.22.18//: going through old photos for a project and found this gem. ya’ll, my grammie was a such a fierce femme, a strong ass survivor, and one of the best people I have ever known. my world was infinitely better because she loved me. miss her every damn day. #deloralouise#tripathi#respectyourelders#claimitgood#leoseason
08.12.18//: when I feel pulled by g-d, spirit, creator to seek them where the water meets the shore, I trust and listen. I lift my arms upwards, pulling good salty air inwards, releasing blessings outward. thank you is on my tongue and gratitude in my heart. and on days like this, I remember that walls cannot contain the amount of grace in the world. and I am so thankful to be here, alive, whole, loved. and that love is bigger than I ever imagined. and that grace fills everything around me. and that wholeness is the feeling that I deserve. every day. all my life. #claimitgood#queerfemme#sonomacounty#faithinaction#countryroads#queerinfaith
08.03.18//: we’re coming up on five years of being in each other’s lives. I know it’s cliche to say, but this little one transformed me. mimi has taught me so much about unconditional love, boundaries and the power in choosing your own path. she loves hard. she knows what she likes (and who she doesn’t). she has taught me to say no, something that is never easy for my little Sagittarius heart. I am so thankful for this little pig bear dog. #mirabaimarigold#lilmama#americanbully#adoptdontshop#healdsburg#sonomacounty#mydogismychild
07.24.18//: my heart is broken. for your community, for your family, for your life taken far too soon. this wasn’t a random killing. this was white supremacy. call it what it is. let us say your name, again and again. as we protest, as we raise our voices, as we work to dismantle hatred in this country, as we hold our communities accountable and as we fight for a world that honors, respects, cherishes and protects black and brown lives. let us never forget that we failed you.
nia wilson. nia wilson. nia wilson. nia wilson.
rest in power.
thank you @broobs.psd for the 🎨.
