Congratulations if you’re reading this, you’ve made it up this mountain of a year! 2021 may not wipe our problems clean but it does offer an opportunity to reset intentions. Beyond our collective encounter with confinement, grief and joy, 2020 thrusted us into a new period of reconstruction. A profound period of change precipitated by devious leadership, and a volatile global public health system. Ruptures in governance shifted the political landscape while good ol’ fashioned greed continued to undercut the working class. As the conversation surrounding the value of Women and Black lives went global, many answered the call to restore equity within their communities. We simply cannot have the arrogance to believe that change can 'only' occur in our lifetime. Our biggest obligation is to those coming ahead, TF!
On the upswing, we noticed a new wave of resistance movements sweeping the globe, primarily led by energized young people. They seriously fucked with the wrong generation and I’m here for it! Personally, 2020 was about finding solid ground. I'm excited about 2021 knowing that I can finally focus on the work. As we cross the rubicon into the new year, I want you to remember this, "whichever way you slice 2020, things will never be the same again." And you know what? I’m ok with that.
My first show is in 2 weeks and the annual detox has officially commenced. Happy new year ya'll, best wishes from California!
