Wake up you
Get golden hued
Find the fitness
Meet the witness
Magic in the middle
You do the math
Cement the path
Time to solve the riddle
Today I’m doing things simply. This week has been dramatic but I’m firmly grounded regardless.
In 5 days I’m handing my PhD thesis in. Just a few little edits left and off to the printers on Monday. I gotta get some paid work done too, so that I can afford to pay for the printing lol.
The head of Native Studies in Arizona wants me to go there and help them set up a creative practice PhD program. That’s a job for this week, beginning that discussion and looking for funding. I’d like to go for a year.
I submitted a few abstracts this week. One was on barriers to healthcare access for transgender Māori, the other was on kaupapa Māori creative strategies to empower the HIV sector.
I have been cray emailing cuators and scholars all over the world during the past week as well. I think there needs to be a Takatāpui/Two Spririt gathering in 2019, with a focus on creative practice and relational strategies toward healing our land, communities and futures.
I don’t care that I’m a black, hairy, HIV positive fucking tranny who’ll never get the chop cos I love my dick.
I’m guna change the world.
