Took my son out for breakfast ๐Ÿฅž ๐Ÿณ to spend a little QT before heading out to Montreal for the Pinay Power II Conference. So looking forward to workshopping my research and writing on colonization, embodied history and the neuroscience of healing from historical trauma with @goldenladynay and to learning from all the incredible Filipinx artists/activists/academics/socialworkers/changemakers who will be there ๐Ÿ‘Š๐ŸฝโœŠ๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡ต๐Ÿ‡ญ ๐Ÿ“ธ by Teodoro :) . . . #pinay #pinxy #pinaypower #writersofinstagram #writerscommunity #writerslife #conference #filipina #filipinx #historicaltrauma #healingtrauma #decolonize #breakfast

Fly on Little Wing...went to pay our respects to Jimi Hendrix on this rainy Sunday at the Greenwood Memorial Cemetery in Renton... * *Woman and child and man and wife The best love to have is the love of life* ... ...Well, she's walking through the clouds With a circus mind that's running wild Butterflies and Zebras And Moonbeams and fairy tales That's all she ever thinks about Riding with the wind... . . #jimihendrix #musicidol #donthatecreate #genius #poet #virtuoso #voice #guitarist #singer #songwriter #original #blackrock #goyourownway #littlewing #straightahead #gonetoosoon

My four-year-old son took this photo of a paper robot we assembled, found the BxW filter, and called the snap a shot of Oscar the robot taking over the world. Maybe heโ€™s got a future in filmmaking - except given his genre prefs I think he was born like 70 years too late #kaiju #godzillarobot #godzilla #strangebeast #mothra #kingkong #oscar #glowbot #glowbottakeover

Real writing life: racking up all the rejections! I got another rejection on my chapbook manuscript today - that makes it 12 - a dirty dozen. Ive been trying to publish this chapbook for almost two years and its starting to get me down, but then I think of writing idols like Lauret Savoy who had her book rejected by 64 agents before finding it the right home and I remember that just like in the rest of life, perseverance is everything. So Im turning rejection into motivation and telling its little minions of self doubt to Eff off and finding the lion and the medicine and the flower in the weeds. . . . . #writersofinstagram #writinglife #rejection #cnfchapbooks #chapbook #prose #dandelion #weed #flower #motivation #publishing #perseverance

Mother Winter by Sophia Shalmiyev - because I just finished it and now itโ€™s inside me, because itโ€™s about presence and absence and mothering and daughtering and withering and blossoming in harsh climates, because itโ€™s that time of the year when Seattle winter reminds you that early spring is just its sheepโ€™s clothing. This memoir in fragments is extraordinary - just stunning. Thank you so much for the recommendation @restlesswriterx and thank you @sshalmiyev for birthing this into the world. . . . #memoir #cnf #literarynonfiction #creativenonfiction #feminism #feminist #feministliterature #writersofinstagram #bookstagram #writerscommunity #newbooks #sophiashalmiyev #pnw #pnwwriters #motherhood #russia
