For this run around the sun it’s just going to be private affairs and a tighter circle. . 📷 @lalafalana (Who withholds the good photos from me FOR YEARS. )

Here’s the thing, I am my mother’s daughter; I am all fight and no flight. (As much as I try to be some days. ) I’ve learned that love means through the hard, the disappointment, over the pedestal and after the emeralds. Because she did it first, and she was better than me at it. You are always the right shade of love and I will always be your best fighting words. You are the smell of vintage books and you read; in order to be a lover you have to be a fighter too. IT’S MY MOTHER’S BIRTHDAY! And she sees all of my Instagrams and looks at all of your comments and then asks me how you’re doing. (She’s the best and cares the most about all of you. ) So shout out your favorite Vikki in the comments; she’ll see it and then forever ask me about you.

“I thought you’d over stayed your welcome but I was wrong,” is what millennial love is really about. . 📷 @rose_ettastone

YOU GUYS I’M DOING POEMS! LIVE! ON FRIDAY! IN CHINATOWN! I met @brittharrrrison last year when she created a piece (the one RIGHT behind me ) inspired by one of my poems and I IMMEDIATELY fell in love with her and her talent. So when Britt asked me to be apart of @futuretongue ‘s event, The Well Beneath, I told her she could have ALL of my poems. It’s going to be an incredibly curated weekend of all kinds of art with the intention being the expression of vulnerability. And I can’t wait to get all vulnerable with you on Friday (1/4 ). . It’s at 7pm. It’s at @noustousla It’s with @keishaleng and @aidenarata It’s going to be special.
Today my therapist said, “You have to live your art so your art can live.” He’s said some crazy shit over the years but I could tell he was holding that one in the back pocket of his chinos just for me. (And if you could have SEEN the look of pride on his face you would be just as in love with this 70+ man from Studio City. )

Do you think I can include hand sanitizer as a “business expense”? . 📷 @vogue_poet
I guess I’m an open mouth smiler and never realized it. 📸 @lalafalana
The best part of me is always you. I don’t even have words for these women. Because I have been going THROUGH it. And I would like to think that I am open about my life and my heart but this last period of darkness has been rough in a new way. And as I have tried to wade through these waters my lighthouse has been these women. I never feel more loved or free or supported or challenged or me or taken care of or better than I do when I am with my tribe of women. I haven’t been the best friend or the easiest to love in this moment but the resilience in the love that these women have, to love me loud and to love me fiercely, is why they are the loves of my life. And I am so grateful that they choose me. I wrote this all out and then thought about deleting it for a “clever” caption. But also here is my heart and I never would take that back. I guess I did have some words (I’m still me ).
Have an emotional breakdown on Monday. Buy a ticket on Wednesday. Show up in Hawaii on Sunday. Sometimes, you just have to go. 📸 @rose_ettastone
