Last year, on this day, I was rolling hard for the community like... today, I’m drinking Bourbon 🥃 in a romper because furious times require brown liquor and tent revivals. #radicalselfcare #cmurder #nolimit

“The bad news is you’re falling through the air, nothing to hang on to, no parachute. The good news is there’s no ground.” For my birthday, I’m usually in search of sunniness, fertile ground to build a life well lived. Surfing. Jungles. Service. This year, I laid on the couch for a couple of days *two weeks* and got swallowed by a blizzard, I was overcome with “Fire and Fury” of network TV, expectations for the new year, extra belly fat, the flu and freezing pipes. The opposite of sunniness really. But losing control is the domain of the brave and I’m brave. Keith wrapped me in double coats and rolled me to NYC. I blushed through each bite of Brooklyn Fare and screamed as Bette Midler appeared in red sequins. Screamed! New York City felt like home. Not Sacramento home, but a quickening of the heart. Tomorrow NYC will definitely sleet on my head. And through it all, I will rejoice. Thank you for your beautiful birthday wishes. And for the amazing call from three generations of the Jackson family! And for Sandria’s inspiratiin to do 365 of yoga. And for my missionary mom saying “Happy Born Day!” And for the man at the deli counter who gave me extra fagioli. And mostly God, for being alive. It is good. #swoon [Photos from the news, strangers and my coco-buttered iphone lens)

So lucky to have my kid cousin @tuuhleacee staying with me. Thank you T.Y. for lending your awesome daughter to us for the holidays. You did such a beautiful job. She’s brilliant, kind, courageous, funny and super adventurous. Just dropped her off on the freeway, in the snow, with an overnight bag, to take the bus to NYC for New Years!!! She’s fired up!!? I almost forgot what it was like to be a college student. #FamilyReunion

From his mouth, I heard what it’s like to lose 40,000 of your people in three months. Freedom fighter seems too anemic of a title for Rasheed. He goes by Sheed because, well, he’s dope, he wraps a neck scarf better than most and because every sublime hero needs a code name. He is a leader of the Rohingya, who today, right now, are experiencing one of the greatest human rights atrocities that the planet has ever witnessed. The only reason I know about it is because two of my dearest friends Matthew and Amy are on the ground, fearlessly telling the story. Drinks in Manhattan feels a little different when this is your company. So you can imagine how ironic it was really that Sheed said, “Morgan you’re the first African American I’ve ever met, I feel very lucky.” I said, “Damn straight!” Because a) I like to be irreverent in times of high emotion, b) because Black People really are awesome and c) because I’m juuuuust feeling brave enough to imagine what might happen if people who’ve survived mass trauma across the globe held each other up, stood in the gap for justice together and created spaces for and ritual around emotional and physical healing. We have so much to learn. And so much to give. Thank you Matthew and Amy, for how you move on this earth and for taking time to kick it with friends - something that too often feels like a luxury. I love you guys. Tell Sheed I said, “Heeeeeeeeeey!” ♥️

To all of those who sincerely wept for my wooden earring that broke - so unceremoniously and ghetto-fabulously - at The Obama Summit. Don’t you worry one bit. Because ...Gorilla Glue. And because ...Black People invented “recycle, reduce AND reuse” and we’re the original hackers and pretty much invented innovation. So... #LoveSupreme #GhettoHacks #BlackConservationLooksLike
