This is a collection of (a few) individuals and collectives who have nourished and continue to nourish me. In this list you will find poets, artists, activists, writers, agitators, scholars, witches, healers, shapeshifters, soothsayer and various combinations of creators.

This list is always shifting and evolving. This is by no means and exhaustive list of loves, just people and spaces I especially feel the need to highlight.

It’s a wonder the many pieces of each other we hold inside of ourselves.
