(my soul is in orbit / with GOD face to face - Hair 1967)



salam,
i’ve been feeling untethered. not unwell or even down trodden. while the end of last month was difficult in terms of managing my mental health, I was able to catch up & resettle as June began. glad to be here. i guess it’s officially summer time. or unofficially the season is telling us it’s ready. the days are getting so long. how don’t know how big the skies are where you are but here the sun linger a casual eternity.
i feel more grounded each day, but there is also consistency in orbit. i don’t worry about these seasons where the motions, if detached, are functioning well. holding the spark within closer for the meanwhile.
yeah, if you can do anything this week is hold the good, the power, the magic within you closer. invest in yourself & feel steadfast in the present.

what’s going on:

  1. presented without comment: Kenne McFadden of San Antonio is the 12th Trans Woman of Color killed this year.

  2. James Comey played his part which in the context made for pretty solid television. Get the facts if you don’t know them but watch this live remix from Super Deluxe.

  3. re: Russia hacking the election // I realized while I worry about cyber security, our own government is already what it is, so like, what is security in a surveillance state?

what i’ve been listening to:

  1. i don’t know if i slept on SZA or if her newer work is more realized or whatever but her latest album CTRL is a triumph. Watch the video for Love Galore but more importantly peep the bombastically wavey “Drew Barrymore

  2. ALSO SNOOP DOGG RELEASED A NEW ALBUM & Y’ALL DIDN’T TELL ME. he even has a song with Kaytranada….!

what i’ve been watching:

  1. The Handmaid’s Tale. Just curious. Won’t link anything to it. But it’s something. White women are wild yo. But also art is wild. Tweet at me if you wanna talk about it.

  2. Desus & Mero are back. Imagine if your two favorite bodega uncles knew a thing or two but watched the news. They’re great. Naw. Like really amazing.
