An offering...

Being a part of the Collective IDentity online sessions was a unique experience. I’ve tried to write about it a few times and found myself stumped. I can’t seem to articulate what it was like to be invited into such an intimate space. Instead, I’m going to share some of the notes that I made during the sessions and hopefully the work will fill in the gaps.


Nurturing, wrapping up warm with a blanket
All of the senses allow the memories to come back
Take your power
Rooted as the flowers and plants outside
A gardener growing sunflowers
Embodied the carving
Was the memory in there or was I building it?
Intense to watch on the little screens
Expansion of empathy
Opening the water, space for your body
A fern unfurling
