Notes from the youniverse


That’s us
That’s me
That’s you
A river with eyes
Floating along the waves
Trying to see inside of itself
Allegorical caves
describe us in this maze that we’ve dubbed a race for rats like we didn’t originate from the slab and splat that wrote shrews onto the scene and deep in our genes we are still connected
Like roots like vines just beneath the surface
we stand aligned with the serpent and the dove
All sides of every coin we permeate through it all
Is there a single place that
the universe
that source
that God cannot be
Create creator and prove your own doubt wrong
Skepticism will not solve the problem of ineptitude
It’s in you
Spread your wings and make room for possibility to stand taller than Justice in this realm
All things are possible
Manifest our realities
Start today
With a visual
Assign a word
Do an action
Change the world
Be love
Be empathy
Change the world
Change your world
Change you
Change the universe

A radical of the heart and pacifist of the mind, I spend much of my time contemplating the degrees of difference between humans, other animals and non-living things. Committed to changing the world through both overt and subversive techniques I am a writer, farmer, educator, performer and community organizer who uses the tools of artistic expression, urban agriculture and social awareness to impact change and foster a sense of empathy and inter-being in local urban communities. I am committed raising my voice and using the power of art to spark major social change in the Capital Region and the larger world.
