It is with fierce love that I share a reading and arte of my children’s book When a Bully Is President, Truth and Creativity for Oppressive Times for today’s inauguration.
In the days ahead we must know the truth of who we are and that we are pure creative power.
Go slowly and carry your pen. Document your life and experiences, your thoughts, your children, the people you know. Write. When you don’t have words, draw. Use your creative power to guide you and know yourself. Let it flow through these days and through your heart.
Because if we’re going to make it through, and we will, we’re going to have to open new paths, dream new worlds, write a whole new story.
Take care today. And tomorrow. Take care during all of these days.
They will test our love, for ourselves, for each other. These days will test our love for truth and our love for humanity.
But through everything, creativity will guide us back to the truth of ourselves.
Voice is a revolution. The time is now.
