Update: The State of What This Is

On the USA being exactly who we thought it was: 

Self-care is such a necessary and beautiful thing. Based on the calls and reactions from the election night results, in the midst of reading/writing think-pieces and pointing fingers (if you voted for a 3rd party candidate—that's your right, and while I disagree with taking that action in this election—you have an ally and defender in me), please remember to allow people the space and time for it today, tomorrow, and the next day.

Also, to the amazing organizers, socio-economic revolutionaries, 'not quite sure but always in support of dialogue and active listening’ allies, and, fellow LGBTQ family and POC that I'm so very proud to know: we're going to be alright. It may take what feels like 1 too many days of rest during about 1460 of endurance, but together, we'll pick up the ground lost and then some.

On Down On The Other Street Volume III: 

I love this book .I don’t think I’ll ever be ready to say good-bye to this series, it has been such a wild but wonderful catharsis for me. However, I recognize that it must and will be done. That said, I do apologize, but there will be another delay. I need a bit more time practicing self-care following the USA elections. When Vol III is released, I want to be able to celebrate as a writer, while working to resist and revoke the unacceptable tides reemerging in the country as an activist. 

As always, thank you for your kindness and patience.

Happy reading,
