Most of my known elders are buried in Oakland, so I’ve grown to see my reflexion in this place. My muse, all fiery and blue.

 

My art is a prayer for our local superheroes. Monuments for the dreamers and women of wounded communities who teach love and self-determination. Praise for Gods that live and breathe and put in work.

 

This is part of an old conversation, but my mind is on the future. I see myself in these warriors. Do you?
