I coordinated a gathering this weekend for a few friends & I to put a little pressure on us to take more moments to search for solitude as we continue to fight for justice within our community; Solitude for the health of our hearts and our mental .
Releasing our thoughts and emotions is a practice that we share here in a creative way.
We remember that within community is a tribe of strong ass sistas and even when we bend we do not break , we are stronger together as one than we could ever be alone - Queens, a tribe , sistas, sisters, black women, formations of art, family.
Neither of us may have given Basquiat or Van Gogh a run for their money, but the purpose of this picnic wasn’t to express creative talent but simply the thoughts & messages that have been placed within our minds .
We shared these moments eating VLT’s (vegetarian blt’s) and sipping raspberry, cucumber, & mint lemonade.
We foraged wildflowers together to fill a centerpiece that attracted the bee’s , - we listened, we laughed, we were at peace .
