just uncovered:: my hand-knitted baby socks. I have travelled to 48 countries and lived in 7. The term ‘nomad’ is a poetic way to make sense of the loss that comes with constant physical re/dis/location. The material past remains deeply meaningful to me #nomadology #proudbaglady

the original:: love locks… on the bridge overlooking Nôtre Dame, each lock adorned with names, a a pronouncement of love between people … and it is a very LONG bridge #moreLOVEmorePOWER #ourspaceislove #nomadology

In their politics and practices women’s and feminist movements create various forms of counter-culture and alternative power relations. Set in the context of other social movements, this implies that integrating gender perspectives is not just about ‘including’ women or ‘thinking about’ men and gender minorities but, rather, considering what a gendered politics provides in terms of alternative ways of being, seeing and doing that in themselves serve to transform patriarchal power relations.

Happy birthday to our ancestor June Jordan, a muse supreme as an essayist, poet and feminist activist. Am totally honoured that she picked my poem "Dis U.N: for Rwanda" for 1st prize in the Sojourner Poetry Prize way back in 2001…
As Angela Davis said of her in a eulogy: : “She changed people’s worlds with her words and she created beauty in the process”.‪#‎WeAreTheOnesWeHaveBeenWaitingFor‬

For there are no new ideas. There are only new ways of making them felt, of examining what our ideas really mean (feel like) on Sunday morning at 7 AM, after brunch, during wild love, making war, giving birth; while we suffer the old longings, battle the old warnings and fears of being silent and impotent and alone, while tasting our new possibilities and strengths.
