Let me entertain you.

What is a superpower you’d love to have?

Self-healing or invisibility…

In today’s world, it seems like self-healing would be more practical but less fun.

Fire breathing came in third. It could be handy but often enough will be misinterpreted as „such an intense person to be around“. So I had to cross that one out of my desires for superpowers. Although I am always cold at night and it might be a solution for that.

Got to continue to work on my daily superpower of persistence and perseverance in developing my creative works.

What is a cause you’re passionate about and why?

Think globally act locally!

As a person who travels around the world and has had homes in three different cultures. I’ve always found it interesting how beautiful and sustainable neighborhoods and communities are. When we live within them, shop within them, support them and become a part of this circle.

This is one of the reasons why I do not shop online often. And certainly not Amazon. I have found that going out of my way is staying on the path. 🦀 Fortunately I do not have a physical disability so I can run downstairs and go to my local bakery or go to my local clothing designer. Yes, sometimes these things are a tiny bit more expensive. But the quality is so much better the connection is so important and the Value that I am receiving is often shopping once and owning an item of quality forever. This matters to me.

I’ve learned throughout the years. in my 20s I didn’t care I wanted it affordable and fashionable I was into quick fashion. presently I’m in my 40s. I’ve learned a lot and to me sustainability and a lifestyle that has a connection to the earth to caring about the products that I consume. The support I offer and receive is priceless. Caring about the people that I shop from and cross paths with not intimately but as a community member is something I am passionate about.

What is a life lesson you feel everyone can benefit from learning?

Forgiveness!

Forgiveness is such beautiful quality and practice. We are in a world that judges people, full of cancel culture! A path built upon colonialism. A pain felt my the majority of humans that live in the intersectionality of inequality. So many of us are hurt.

We are hurt by “society”. We are hurt by family. We are hurt by friends. We are hurt by circumstances and we often hurt ourselves.

Forgive me. Forgive them. This does not mean forget or let someone walk all over you or let the system remain as it is if it’s not working for you. But it means let go of that pain and find a place within your soul that allows you to continue to create the changes you need to see in the world.

Let go of the pain

What does your ideal day look like?

Waking up to the pink tones of sunset! Taking some selfcare and a coffee, then back to bed.

Having a loved one join me for brunch! The rest of the day will most likely be wonderful after such a start. Perfection Isa’s not something I want.

I crave adventures memories health and abundance. These things often come from mistakes, oppsies and what is unplanned for.

Corona Arbeit got me in a German dive bar! A misadventure that’s keeping me real!

What does it mean to live boldly?

This question immediately brings up gender inequality, memories, and the pursuit of happiness, for I am a woman who lives life by her own rules. I have always lived boldly I have always lived fiercely, but being female & a minority, I often have been treated as if this equates to lousy behavior. My boldness has been considered rude instead of a strength.

What is golden and admirable for one gender has been seen and socialized as rude for women minorities and other (they them) boldness is seen as too much and Over the top behavior. We should raise little girls to live a bold existence to have not only a passion for expression and this includes being able to say no without an explanation that is the confidence that is what we expect and respects about each other when I say no, but I also have to be apologetic, or embarrassed which I will not be! My no, it’s clear one word a bold no I live life boldly I pursue my dreams. Sometimes I get lost in this pursuit in a forest of Creative confusion. Still, amongst all of these choices, I have fought for the freedom to be a sassy, bold, wild woman. I have immigrated to countries where I am respected for my independence and expected to marry and bear children!
