Activism

So, how do you do SOMETHING when the world around you is on fire and your brain is literally trying to escape?

My camera isn’t going to help me. I’m not a photojournalist. I’d never be able to keep up if I tried. And regurgitating what I read doesn’t feel helpful to me because I’m not a reporter. I can only be reactive to the things that are happening right now. So how do I do that while keeping my body intact?

I art.

It’s been a while since I’ve flexed my editing muscles, but I felt the need to do something to get these feelings and thoughts out of me. And honestly, I have missed it.

So I went onto Redbubble and I opened up an account and I started editing and posting. And damn, do I feel better. The items are there for purchase, but the buying is not the point. I’ll be happy if someone just sees it and feels like they’re being supported.

So even if we have broken bodies with little ability, we can still do something, even if in the end it’s to help us FEEL better. Because I know that it will help someone else feel better too. And that’s all that matters.
