Respect. You can’t rewind time.
Things carry weight. You can’t take back what you do. Each moment leaves an indelible imprint on the future. You can’t create without respect.
Play. And just see.
Don’t say no. Let it not make sense for as long as possible. Beat them with a stick and put them back together. Make a mess and never apologise.
Nourish. Drink tea.
Share. Nourish yourself and those around you. Drink from the same pot, see the work of others, read, cry, rant, surrender. Consume positively and passionately. Celebrate and rest.
Sing. If in doubt, sing.
Something happens when you sing. When you hear a song. A silly song that says so much. A song to run. A song breathes differently.
Space. Let something happen.
Let space affect you, inform you, change you and tell you stories. Be thankful for it, cherish it, hurt it, fear it. Change it and let it change you. Rejoice in your context, know its limitations and its freedoms. Adhere to, and brazenly push past who you are, who they are. Be mindful of all that is not a part of yourself.
Identity. A female declaration.
We are women. Our work is of us. Women together, finding together. The work is/of us.
