making LOVE




I like to think of this as my life's work… making love. Creating beautiful and memorable experiences, objects de art, connections and relationships. To me, it's all founded in LOVE and a certain lust for all this life has to offer.

February is my month. It's the time when things get covered in pink and red and hearts and love. Commercial or not, I get giddy over all the festive adoration. Conversation hearts, valentines, sexy talk about pleasure and desire. It's all good, even if your love is a more inward focused. Who doesn't need a badass dose of Self Love?

In honor of my birthday month and the season of love (cue inspirational RENT song, here!), I am dedicating this month to living and loving even more. Within these next 28 days I want to challenge myself to go that extra step - be braver and bolder. You can join me! Where I once would have hesitated, thought 'what if?', I am going to say a daring YES! and then do what it takes to get closer to my desires. At the end of the month I will round them up for you and share them here. Let me know if you want to play along!

Some of what I am musing on are big creative projects, a huge piece of dream writing, a retreat that has been simmering for years, new work in the sex positive community... and some of what I want is more relationship based, new adventures with Alex, a bit of adventure without Alex, and some sacred yummy time with dear friends. I'm carving out space for it all and planning ways to make it happen, if not this month, at least setting things in motion. 

Everyday, all month long. 

Make LOVE, baby!

The Cost of Selling Belonging

As someone who use to sell belonging and believed I was creating something universally magical , I now have fresh eyes on the harm that I once caused. I understand what can (and was) incredibly healing and impactful for some, was at the same time excluding, marginalizing and undervaluing others. First, to anyone who ever felt like they did not belong to anything I created because they were unable to afford it or felt like they did not have the social capitol to join -  I am sincerely sorry for not seeing you sooner .   To our entire creative community as a whole, I urge us all to think about belonging in new and equitable ways, and to do the work of dismantling these hierarchical structures that leave so many people out of the circle. We all deserve to have access to creativity and belonging, and I'd go so far as to say both are fundamental basic human needs and rights. Selling belonging can look like... Creating spaces and experiences that can only be accessed by buying in at one,

what's in a name?

It’s May 14, 2020 and I’m on a transnational call with a social worker and translator of the SOS Children’s Village offices in South Korea. It’s 7pm my time and 9am the next day in Korea, which adds to the surreal quality of the moment. It is my first long distance call following my inquiry with the organization documented to be my first place of entry into the system, found in my Korean records (the acquisition of which is an incredible story in and of itself). It was July 21, 1972 and I was 5 months old. It’s a small miracle the organization still exists, and an even bigger blessing that they took such time and care in searching for information and to talk it all through with me in person. I try not to cry as the call connects. What I learn is a lot of small details about that fateful evening which amount to nothing traceable, but still feel like huge missing pieces of my life. I was left near the entrance around 7pm under a small tree, wrapped in a blanket with only a name scribble
