This was a year of deep darkness and bright light; forsaken and welcoming journeys; rupture and attachment; pain and joy; reconnection and connection.
But here I am facing the uncertain future - wiser from that journey. More connected and self aware of my power.
So it's oddly appropriate that my birthday falls on Bandcamp Friday and right after Trans day of Visibility and as my OpenCollective/Patreon contributions kick in. Now, more than ever, we need to care for each other and support art and music that defines our collective humanity. Support these artists/causes and I will happily spread the Birthday love to them!
No official party, but if you'd like to see me and Gus I'll be at the Internet Archive friday lunch, and I'll be at Lake Merrit on Saturday skating and doing some lighting/visualization for the always fun trance DJ extravaganze ASOT 510. Oh and also prepping costumes and the CyberVan for Neotropolis Fest!
And with that I leave you with this lyric:
Don't act like there is no tomorrow
You should use the pain and sorrow
To fill you up with power
Life's both sweet and sour!
Time for strawberry cake!
