“When I dare to be powerful, to use my strength in the service of my vision, then it becomes less and less important whether I am afraid.”

Howling with rage to this Full Moon in my Scorpio about the rising abortion restrictions here in the States (where I live and raise a daughter), but also my native Poland. WWWWTTTFFF?! It’s 2019 and this is so unbelievable. 
I hope that every woman out there can turn this feeling of injustice and oppression into the energy of change and empowerment. Please help us Moon... words by #AudreLorde via @thewildfeminine

In light of Alabama & Missouri and all the other states wanting to pass anti-abortion laws, I post this powerful and poignant picture of the late poet Audre Lorde. The #quote reads “Women are powerful & dangerous.” These simple words should strike fear into the minds of the all white male lawmakers who believe that they now have the right to make choices for a woman’s body.  It is not a man’s choice to decide if a woman should have an abortion. To have an abortion is a woman’s choice & it was made a law through Roe v. Wade. To Alabama & Missouri & any other state ready to take away a woman’s right to choose, please remember the words of Ms. Audre Lorde! #prochoice #awomanschoice #mychoice #mybody #audrelorde

Yesterday I received my Master of Arts in English. The first woman in the history of my bloodline to do so. When I received my Bachelors in 2016 I crossed the stage 6 months pregnant carrying my 3rd baby. This time around, I carried myself— an older, rougher, smarter, stronger, braver, wiser, and  by all accounts, badder Sabrina. A version of myself I would not recognize just 2 years ago. I have been through fucking hell in the last two years. I’ve drowned in self-doubt. Allowed my own demons to suffocate me. Self-sabotaged more times than I’m proud to admit. I even had an abortion halfway through grad school. I chose myself. I chose my 3 living children. I chose my book, a book I completed while in grad school. Every choice I have made has been made with the intention to leave behind a legacy that will outlive my physical body. I fought for this shit. Every. Single. Day. By the end of this journey I took a match to the self-doubt, the demons, the bullshit, and I set it all on fire. I watched it burn and I did more than make room for myself here, I took up the space I needed, as a former high school drop out, a teenage mother, a survivor, and a woman of color to allow myself to feel I belonged here. Because my voice mattered. And so does everyone else’s after me. So here I stand, “my one hand holding tight my other hand.  Come celebrate with me that everyday something has tried to kill me— and has failed.” #latinxgradcaps #wiselatina #woc #sanantonio #latinarebels #hoodacademic #sabrinasanmiguel #masterofarts #mastersdegree #audrelorde #lucilleclifton #browngirlscholar #academia #scholar #poet #chicanx #mujeres #chingona #writelikeamotherfucker #jaggrad19 #eastsidesanantonio #denverheights

"Moon marked and touched by sun 
my magic is unwritten
but when the sea turns back
it will leave my shape behind."
#audrelorde ✨🌊🌕♀️
------------------------
Today I woke up early and went to the climbing gym. It's been about 6 months since I confronted that wall. It felt good to tear some skin off my fingers, bleed a little, and carry my own weight. On this full moon, I celebrate my own fullness. I can't take a good selfie to save my life but I can save myself from falling…

We will NOT stand by as the state tries to seize our bodies as their property. We will NOT look away when white men vote to strip us of our bodily autonomy. We will NOT stay silent when governing bodies look to criminalize us, particularly poor women of color, on whether to choose motherhood or not. But we WILL rise in resistance for reproductive justice until we have genuine liberation for all! ⚔️👊🏾#GetOrganized #FuckYourAbortionBan #ReproductiveJustice #FeministsFightFascism #DismantlePatriarchy #af3irm #AudreLorde Artwork by @af3irmla mem

[🎧 Sonores] Parfois, on a simplement envie d’éteindre son cerveau, de créer un silence intérieur salvateur, au moins pour quelques minutes. Chacun-e a sa méthode pour parvenir à cet état méditatif et contemplatif, où rien d’autre n’a d’importance que le présent. Pour certaines d’entre nous, chez Deuxième Page, cet armistice avec nous-mêmes passe par la musique. Si tu ne connais pas encore la violoncelliste Julia Kent, Temporal – son dernier LP solo, sorti en janvier 2019 – constitue un excellent point d’entrée dans son œuvre riche et multiple. En sept titres, composés à l’origine pour des performances de théâtre et de danse, l’artiste t’emporte avec elle dans un grand tourbillon émotionnel. Temporal, c’est une éternité qui s’écoule à la manière d’un instant. Tout est marqué par le mouvement, la cadence des corps qui s’élancent et la rythmique entêtante d’un cœur qui ralentit et s’accélère. On peut sentir du bout des doigts la texture des sons. À la somptuosité de son violoncelle, Julia Kent joint comme dans son précédent album, Asperities, des touches de musique électronique. Mais ici, l’ensemble paraît plus doux. L’instrumentiste délaisse les sonorités dissonantes qu’elle chérissait auparavant, comme portée par une quête intime, celle de la sérénité. Au fil des morceaux, elle l’atteint et amène avec elle ses auditrices et auditeurs vers des terres de splendeur, paisibles.

@ladyphyll MsPhyll Opoku (Lady Phyll )’s portrait from GayTimes Cover & #audrelorde wearing Kente on her hair + @muholizanele Muholi #oilpainting

there are persons who change your life’s journey by being who they are which means beautiful and generous souls that I’m grateful to paint or pay tribute to 
They are making History true their struggle and their clear message of UNITY 
Next portrait will be Marsha P Johnson(RIP)#marshapjohnson (In progress) let’s not forget about the #stonewall Stonewall’s riots back 50years ago, that contributes today to make us celebrate ourselves today in our western countries. 
Of course there is still a lot to day today too but,
If you know your History no one can manipulate you.
No more Paris Black Pride in Paris but cards are in our hands and we can decide for our own to be together respect each other in our individualities
 to reach common goals @ struggles as Afro/Noir-e/Rebeu/Muslim/Asian/ Jewish/Christians (ect ...) LGBTQ + people #fubu For us By Us
I’m grateful today for any1 supportive of my artivist approach and hopefully young ones will see my work to be empowered and feel less lonly coz we are here and we are facing realities , erased, invisible or stereotypes in the French main stream
Painting makes me feel free and quiet but it’s not to decorate my own space or being rich...it’s for you #mypeople✊🏾🖤🏳️‍🌈🖤✊🏾✊🏾✊🏾✊🏾✊🏾✊🏾🎨🎨🎨🎨🎨🎭🎭🎭🎭
Have a nice week end and strength if u need it for work/studies or just take care of yourself

💔I wish I had the energy tonight to type all the things I'm thinking and feeling, but after this week....I just simply don't.... please know our bodies are precious and not to be controlled. The history here is ugly and deep... the most powerful things we can do are vote, donate, & support those that have little to no voice, and deepen our connective practices to our bodies, our empowerment, our joy, our pleasure......our magic. We need energy, to resist and persist. Remeber it is always darkest before the dawn and we are each warrior goddesses rooted in integrity & light. We will prevail. We will not sit by silently to watch legislated genocide to prevent the browning of America. .

Adrienne Maree Brown: A Force of Life

A few weeks ago a bunch of us East End Gals went to see Adrienne Maree Brown launch her book "Pleasure Activism". She has a lot of important things to say and is a force to be reckoned with! Here is a quote from her inspired book "Emergent Strategy": "Do you already know that your existence--who and how you are--is in and of itself a contribution to the people and place around you? Not after or because you do some particular thing, but simply the miracle of your life. And that the people around you, and the place(s), have contributions as well? Do you understand that your quality of life and your survival are tied to how authentic and generous the connections are between you and the people and place you live with and in?

Are you actively practicing generosity and vulnerability in order to make the connections between you and others clear, open, available, durable? Generosity here means giving of what you have without strings or expectations attached. Vulnerability means showing your needs." #pleasureactivism #adriennemareebrown #emergentstrategy  #joy #activism #audrelorde #sex #pleasure #joy #socialchange #fun #readbooks #oldscoolgeneralstore

Here is a quote from her inspired book "Emergent Strategy": "Do you already know that your existence--who and how you are--is in and of itself a contribution to the people and place around you? Not after or because you do some particular thing, but simply the miracle of your life. And that the people around you, and the place(s), have contributions as well? Do you understand that your quality of life and your survival are tied to how authentic and generous the connections are between you and the people and place you live with and in?

Are you actively practicing generosity and vulnerability in order to make the connections between you and others clear, open, available, durable? Generosity here means giving of what you have without strings or expectations attached. Vulnerability means showing your needs." #pleasureactivism #adriennemareebrown #emergentstrategy #joy #activism #audrelorde #sex #pleasure #joy #socialchange #fun #readbooks #oldscoolgeneralstore

Emergent Strategy: Shaping Change, Changing Worlds

In the tradition of Octavia Butler, Emergent Strategy is radical self-help, society-help, and planet-help designed to shape the futures we want to live. Change is constant. The world is in a continual state of flux. It is a stream of ever-mutating, emergent patterns. Rather than steel ourselves against such change, this book teaches us to map, assess, and learn from the swirling structures around us in order to better understand and influence them as they happen. This is a resolutely materialist “spirituality” based equally on science and science fiction, a feminist and afro-futurist incantation to transform that which ultimately transforms us.

Pleasure Activism: The Politics of Feeling Good

How do we make social justice the most pleasurable human experience? How can we awaken within ourselves desires that make it impossible to settle for anything less than a fulfilling life? Author and editor adrienne maree brown finds the answer in something she calls “pleasure activism,” a politics of healing and happiness that explodes the dour myth that changing the world is just another form of work. Drawing on the black feminist tradition, she challenges us to rethink the ground rules of activism. Her mindset-altering essays are interwoven with conversations and insights from other feminist thinkers, including Audre Lorde, Joan Morgan, Cara Page, Sonya Renee Taylor, and Alexis Pauline Gumbs. Together they cover a wide array of subjects—from sex work to climate change, from race and gender to sex and drugs—building new narratives about how politics can feel good and how what feels good always has a complex politics of its own.

Building on the success of her popular Emergent Strategy, brown launches a new series of the same name with this volume, bringing readers books that explore experimental, expansive, and innovative ways to meet the challenges that face our world today. Books that find the opportunity in every crisis! #pleasureactivism #adriennemareebrown #emergentstrategy #joy #activism #audrelorde #sex #pleasure #joy #socialchange #fun #readbooks #oldscoolgeneralstore

We will NOT stand by as the state tries to seize our bodies as their property. We will NOT look away when white men vote to strip us of our bodily autonomy. We will NOT stay silent when governing bodies look to criminalize us, particularly poor women of color, on whether to choose motherhood or not. But we WILL rise in resistance for reproductive justice until we have genuine liberation for all! ⚔️👊🏾#GetOrganized #FuckYourAbortionBan #ReproductiveJustice #FeministsFightFascism #DismantlePatriarchy #af3irm #AudreLorde Artwork by @af3irmla member: Iris Boncales-Strausss

Women don’t just wake up wanting to get abortions. It would be a very complex & difficult decision- regardless of the legality. It’s not a black & white issue; but a ban makes it such. Keeping abortion legal makes it first & foremost safe- it doesn’t take away the crisis, it only gives it protections. This is a part of women’s healthcare! If changes need to be made, start by making healthcare accessible before banning it completely!

Please check out @abortionfunds @yellowfund & @arc_southeast to name a few if you are mad as hell & want to help do something strategic & real with your energy/money. (Thank you @chaninicholas @femalecollective & @broobs.psd 🙏🏽).

Silence will not protect you. Go to @ctznwell to learn practical steps on what action you can take.

The symbol inside the ear is an Icelandic magic symbol called Ægishjálmur. He is for invincibility in battle and for protection.
Audre Lorde was an American Writer, Feminist, Womanist, Librarian, and Civil Rights Activist.
Whether it is for the protection of animals, ecological or the battle for women’s rights, we need speak out.

If I were peeled open 
on a warm summer's sky,
If I were unwrapped

If I were discovered like an early edition

If I were the words of your favorite book 
slipping from the edges of its' cover, ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I’d be the rapture on the tip of your tongue.

Happy Friyay!

My journey to wellness has not come without its fair share of challenges! What I’m constantly learning is to allow people to simple be themselves. While its painful to be the brunt of others misplaced and misguided emotional issues; a jewel of wisdom I’ve incorporated into my selfcare regimen is to FORGIVE. SHEESH! What makes it easier to swallow is to remember I wasn’t always on this path and that I have inflicted and projected my inward pain on others, yet people saw fit to forgive me. So I give that back freely; with a keen awareness that I walk in a freedom that requires me to forgive and keep moving past, in love.

🎵Praise the Lorde, I just read it in a book, Audre taught me I should take another look 🎶 This song was inspired by the amazing work of the legendary Audre Lorde .

Follow @audrelordeproject ...grateful her work and lessons live on ! .

🎹I'm still such a student when it comes to being tender with myself and others. I know that this movement means nothing without our relationships to ourselves and one another. I stumble over my own feels and don't always see or acknowledge the feelings of others. This song reminds me to do better , for myself and for the sake of our collective future🎹
