about, © & disclaimer : etc

about :

previous to starting this blog in 2015, i was all kinda layers of exhaustion, “undiagnosed (p)tsd & trauma”, “peri menopause”, poverty, resilience, resistance & anger … with a tonne of questions, extremely limited resources & energy, no simple answers & partially deaf to being able to listen to my own body adequately.

when i finally found sufficient assistance, i was already 5 years deep in backlogged fuckshit & had been gifted a years subscription to internetland & a laptop. so i wrote, & wrote & wrote … created & wrote, & wrote & created & wrote. in the sifting & creating & re sifting & deleting & resolving .. i was able to find patterns, answers, access & argue memories & dreams & find a rehashed way of being in my body.

why?

to find some peace, resolution & justice for me, my kids & my mokos (grand babies).

in this rehashed version of my blog (december 2022), i present, my ‘findings’ : my rhythms & realities.
