art, music, fun and new friends in the city of lights and love! <3
orginally from long beach, ca. student at UC santa barbara (4th year sociology major w/ education & lgbt studies minors)
studying in paris, france; visiting amsterdam, berlin, and brussels.
grounding my mind, body, & spirit with mama earth. constantly enchanted, repulsed and overwhelmed by the variability and complexities of life and existence.
i do everything with intention and mindfulness. i meditate a lot. i'm in love with the way trees sway, the way rain scents the ground, the way the sun awakens the earth, the way mama moon always helps me find my way, the way the stars age, & the way the wind dances. and the serenity and chaos of streams, rivers, and oceans. <3
i run an underground anti-capitalist/for friends/bc i'm broke restaurant/soul kitchen/syrup business. i <3 food, cooking, music & good vibes, so i merged them all together to create something extraordinary.
live your life unconcerned with peoples' perceptions of you, because you only have one lifetime material experience in this body, and you lose ownership over it if you are too wrapped up with other ppls' opinions of your livelihood.
..alternatively, you can intentionally skew ppls' perceptions of you. why not have a little fun if people are going to judge you any way? ;)
i like having fun, i like being barefoot, connecting with the earth, and i like deeper conversations.
