coffee with tania

with the beautiful Tania Day-Magallon whom i felt i knew already – brown cultures are so similar across continents: histories of colonialism, unjust structures and infuriating systems, yet resistance, warmth, generosity, and a strong sense of community. already looking forward to experiencing art together in nyc inshallah <3

magical time

what a magical time with my cousin and his family who visited us from toronto over the weekend. sunday was perhaps the most beautiful winter day of the season with the woods clothed in immaculate snow and the sun shining its warm light on so much beauty. mendon ponds park’s ‘birdsong fairy trail’ was all it promised to be.
