Ethnic Studies could become a #California State University requirement. Deepening self knowledge. Filling in the vast educational gaps as a way towards healing and equity. I just called, spoke with an aide in Gov. Newsom’s office and sent an email. Can you take a few moments to do the same? 🙏🏼
Thank you to all the activists that made this happen! The power of community, communication, awareness and WILL is inspiring. Now those funds can go into building healthy communities, school counselors and support. RP from @blmlosangeles
“1. $150m cut to LAPD budget.
2. Unarmed non-police response to non-violent emergency calls.
3. Motion to bar police from traffic & transportation stops.
4. 35% cut to LAUSD police.”
More to come!

Once upon a time there was a pup who was part prince and part jester. He had heard that human children sometimes liked to talk to one another under water. “Could you tell what I was saying?!” they would ask one another when they came up for air. The pup thought it sounded like fun and that night dreamt he was under the water talking to his best friend. The End.

Wear a mask.
Wear a mask.

#covid19 has no more politics than the phases of the moon, or the billions of dark matter particles passing through us every second.

Thank you @arlanwashere for helping us dive into this moment with the simple and profound question, “How are you doing?” To ask to check in with ourselves on any day requires honesty, a moment of stillness, and the realization that our well being is connected to the well being of others which itself not only necessitates the ability to self reflect but to exercise an awareness of history, or at the very least community. To simultaneously be the rock, the ripple and the pond, and the observer of all three. Thank you for the great conversation! #changetheparadigm#happypridemonth

On this day #marriageequality🌈 was proclaimed a constitutional right by the Supreme Court. The final paragraph of Justice Kennedy’s opinion is exquisite.

This is what #selfcare looks like for me. The water is always calming. Today I was ON the water, next time I will be IN the water. I miss swimming in the ocean next to the seals. Whether I will be able to get back in the kayak in the open water remains to be seen. 😜 #health#nature#mentalhealth#water#kayaking
