I often post pictures of my stacks of physical books but I also have digital copies on my iPhone-in my iBooks as well as in my Kindle app, and in my first generation @barnesandnoble Nook. It’s super convenient when I’m on the go and forget a book because let’s face it, we never forget our phones-god forbid. But it’s RARE that I don’t have a book with me unless I’m out for dinner or to party. 💃🏻Even then, I could sneak in a few pages while I’m waiting for the restrooms to open up. Amirite ladies? 😂Those lines be out the door👯‍♀️👯‍♀️. Anyway, here are a few copies from my iBooks. The ones on the top row are ones I’m currently reading. Who’s read any of these? 🙋🏻‍♀️📖📚📲

Mientras terminamos de leer esta belleza no podemos más que recomendarla. bell hooks* hace mucho tiempo entendió que el feminismo no es tal si no abarca la interseccionalidad entre género, clase y raza y escribió este libro que publicó hace 18 años. Podríamos decir que saca al movimiento de las manos exclusivas de mujeres blancas privilegiadas y lo baja a la calle, amplía el espectro mientras también barre con los prejuicios que carga históricamente ser feminista. Un recorrido ultra completo que abarca la educación, la relación con nuestros cuerpos, los estándares de belleza, las relaciones de pareja y la crianza feminista entre muchos otros temas. Un libro para, dentro de la certeza, nunca dejar de cuestionarse. 💖
.
. “Si atendemos al aumento de la brecha entre ricos y pobres y a la continua feminización de la pobreza, podemos afirmar que necesitamos desesperadamente un movimiento feminista masivo radical, construido a partir de la fuerza del pasado, que incluya los avances positivos logrados por las reformas y cuestione las teorías feministas actuales equivocadas, a la vez que ofrece nuevas estrategias. Un movimiento visionario enraizaría su trabajo en las condiciones concretas de las mujeres pobres y de la clase trabajadora. Esto supone crear un movimiento que fomente la conciencia crítica.” .
.
.
*bell hooks es un seudónimo que surge del nombre de la abuela y la madre de la autora. Ella eligió escribirlo con minúsculas porque “mayúsculas deben ser las ideas” en un gesto crítico al cánon gramatical hegemónico.

“This is the oppressor’s language, yet I need to talk to you.” - Bell Hooks

It makes me uncomfortable that I have to bend my tongue backwards so that my mouth can accommodate the oppressor’s language when I talk to you, yet I need to talk to you. Teach me your language and I’ll teach you mine, that way, we’ll narrow their victory amoungst us and we’ll verify who we are, amoungst ourselves again.

This is the Oppressor’s language, yet I need to talk to you. So teach me your language, and I’ll teach you mine. •

♀ Es muy común que las mujeres piensen que soportar el maltrato y la crueldad y luego perdonar y olvidar es una muestra de compromiso y amor. Pero cuando amamos bien sabemos que la única respuesta sana y amorosa al abuso es alejarnos de quien nos hace daño.

Love is an action. 🙌 An action towards a partner, friend, colleague...and also to ourselves. Lots of ways to practice self love/care. Let’s start today so we don’t have to play catch up tomorrow 💡. #stayhealthy #eatwell #drinkwater #loveisanaction #selfcare #bellhooks #dianekruger #julesbruff

“Yaklaşın, şunu göreceksiniz:
FEMİNİZM HERKES İÇİNDİR.”
*
Merhaba değerli okurlarım,
Bugün sizlerle Bell Hooks’un kaleme aldığı Feminizm Herkes İçindir adlı kitabı paylaşacağım.
*
Bu kitapta Bell Hooks, kültürümüzde ve medyada feminizm hakkında üretilen yanlış tanımları yıkmaya çalışıyor. Feminizmin erkek düşmanlığı olmadığını;
Cinsiyetçiliği, cinsiyetçi sömürüyü ve baskıyı ortadan kaldırmak için başlayan bir hareket olduğunu anlatıyor.
Ayrıca feminizmin doğuşundan itibaren gelişimini aktarıyor.
Feminizmi ırk, sınıf ve etnisite bağlamında ayrıntılı bir şekilde ele alıyor.
*
Feminizmin ne olduğu konusunda az çok çoğumuzun bir fikri var fakat bu yeterli değil. Açıkçası ben bu kitabı okuyunca bu konuda ne kadar eksik olduğumu fark ettim. Bell Hooks’un Feminizm Herkes İçindir adlı bu kitabı, feminizm konusunda bilgilenmek için büyük-küçük, kadın-erkek herkesin okuyabileceği türden bir kitap.
Tüm okurlarıma okumalarını öneriyorum.
Kitap kokulu günler...

“Love is an action, never simply a feeling.” — bell hooks

Here’s a snap shot of three books I’m simultaneously in the middle of. -Love Letters of Great Men (Yes, the very one from Sex and the City) -Love and Lies: An Essay on Truthfulness, Deceit, and the Growth and Care of Erotic Love by Clancy Martin
-All About Love: New Visions by the ineffable bell hooks ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
Lately I think I’ve become a bit obsessed with love. Reading about love from different perspectives, whether they are theoretical essays, memoirs or straight up love letters just interests me.
Though I believe there is a distance and tension between what we say about love and what we feel about love, there is something exhilarating and validating about reading exactly what you know to be true in your heart of hearts. I find it can also break your heart to read of the many ways in which we hurt ourselves and each other and fall short in the name of Love, everyday.
Strongly suggest picking up at least of one these, they’ll make your heart grow grinch style and provoke your soul to do better.

“You cannot be lonely if you like the person you’re alone with.”- Maxwell Maltz———-Not too long ago 🕰️there was a time when I felt as though I needed to be with someone. Needed it kinda like I needed 💧 water. I had to be, because it was the only thing that I had ever known. This is also taught to us from small both indirectly/directly via society- that others are needed or necessary to truly be happy. & so I never gave myself the chance to discover how beautiful & absolutely amazing life could be otherwise, without being confined to outside influence within a certain space. I was surrounded by so much external noise that it literally made it hard to think 🤔 and to hear myself. There is strength and power that comes from taking the time to learn and discover what you enjoy, like, dislike & who you truly are. There is a kind of happiness that comes from within and from God ( I believe) when you genuinely know at your core that no one else on this 🌏 earth is needed in order for you to be whole, happy & complete. I think that many will agree that life is absolutely wonderful when it’s shared in the company of those who genuinely love, appreciate and care for you. But it’s best when you know at your core that if another were not present you’d still be content. No other person on this 🌏 earth should ever be needed for your happiness. Not only is it too much of an unreasonable load for another to carry, but it is also a burdensome demand to place on ones self. Other people should compliment or add to ones life and not be necessary for “life” & to “live life” in and of itself.... “Knowing how to be solitary is central to the art of loving, when we can be alone we can be with others without using them as a means of escape”- Bell Hooks

#Confession: My body told me to slow down. Is yours doing the same thing lately? Are you listening? Our culture glorifies hustle over heart - we find this even within creative communities. But #stillness and #deeplistening water our souls. I am learning so much from reading #bellhooks book on self-recovery (focused on the lived experiences of women of color) and
#thichnhathanh’s Peace is Every Step. ✨

Affirm to yourself that it’s OK to ditch the guilt (thanks Kay @prettyentrepreneur_ for that reminder this morning). Nourish yourself so you create from a liberated and centered space. ✨

P.S.
Our affirmation cards are all about helping you to care for mind, body + spirit. Speaking out what you want to manifest into the world is a powerful and awakening tool. DM me to order yours today. ✨

The moment we choose to love we begin to move against
domination, against oppression. The moment we choose to love we
begin to move towards freedom, to act in ways that liberate
ourselves and others. That action is the testimony of love as
the practice of freedom.

We all do it. But I am learning it stifles the blossoming of radical love and compassion in our hearts. And frankly, it hurts, creates wounds and walls, separates us from family and friends, neighbors, and our fellow living beings... We become willfully blind. 💕

I have been reading #thichnhathanh’s Peace is Every Step, listening to #MotherTersa on audiobook and going back to some essays from #bellhooks in Sisters of the Yam: Black Women and Self-Recovery and there is a commonality in all of their work - release the judgement so you can truly SEE the other living being. 💕

It’s a journey but one I am committed to learning. I love this excerpt from one of Dr. King’s last speeches that #bellhooks quotes: “When I speak of love I am not speaking of some sentimental and weak response. I am speaking of that force which all of the great religions have seen as the supreme unifying principle of life. Love is somehow the key that unlocks the door which leads to ultimate reality. ✨

This Hindu-Moslem-Christian-Jewish-Buddhist belief about ultimate reality is beautifully summed up in the first epistle of Saint John: “Let us love one another; for love is God and everyone that loveth is born of God and knoweth God. He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love. If we love one another God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us.” 💕

Pray with our Feet,
E

When you're trying to read around children... lol.
Recently picked back up a book I began reading about a year ago and decided to start over. An old teacher and now friend @broe22 gifted me with this treasure "All About Love" by #BellHooks and I'm interested in seeing how it resonates with me at this point in my life. I'll be sure to share some gems along the way!

A belated bday present from @zozozozzle. What a present! What would feminism be without these incredible WOC writers. "Feminist struggle takes place anytime anywhere any female or male resists sexism, sexist exploitation, and oppression. Feminist movement happens when groups of people come together with an organised strategy to take action to eliminate patriarchy". #bellhooks #feminstaction #opencanon #engagementarts

In Lorraine Hansberry’s day, there was an ongoing debate about whether or not the dehumanising impact of racism had made it impossible for Black people to love. Her beloved friend and comrade, James Baldwin was often at the forefront of these debates. His quarrels with fellow novelist Richard Wright often centred on the issue of dehumanisation. Wright believed wholeheartedly that Blacks were incapable of loving because of the emotional scars inflicted by racist oppression. Wisely, Baldwin insisted that we are always more than our pain. Not only did he believe in our capacity to love, he believed Black people were uniquely situated to risk loving because we had suffered ... June Jordan reminds us that ‘it is always the love - whether we look to the spirit of Fannie Lou Hamer or the spirit of Agostinho Neto, it is always the love that will carry action into positive places.”

Been thinking a lot about these words. Especially in terms of survival and those instances in which I escaped bondage by being so selfish (leaving a toxic relationship by being fiercely independent and fighting for the right of my existence as an individual as opposed to being his quiet slave/support system). So indeed, my impetus to "make it" was driven more out of desperation not to disappear, to have a life of my own. And yet I completely agree with these statements. Mine was a battle of domination, a struggle for power. But then I was triumphant. And in the mad rush of careerism there was this perpetual sense that because others did it, I would HAVE to as well. But most importantly, I WANTED to. To prove to myself: "yes, I did it." My own narrative reeks of this individualism as I have been known to brag, "I knew no one when I moved to LA. I got these jobs myself. I MADE friends. I MADE this shit happen." And guess what bitch, I sneer to myself with entitled rage so thick you can scrape it off with a spoon, I didn't even go to Grad school!!! But all of this is not exactly true since it developed as a team effort. But although I know my "survival" was the result of a community effort, there still was this feeling in LA that you better do it your goddamn self. It fucking sucks. But girl I am living for that solo show, when Shaun can be the center of attention, when Shaun can get some credit from others that yes, he is an artist (a GOOD, original, not like any other artist). And most importantly, maybe he had a better show than you. Maybe he can dominate the moment, the landscape, the other in his mind. It lasts for about two seconds but boy is the rush all that. Then it's back to the grind, the next show (which you secretly are convinced will never happen), the next crusade for another two seconds of domination in a world that's about two inches in height and depth. It's a bit exhausting. I'm looking forward to a more mediated approach to careerism, to surmount this attitude that it's about "survival", which suggests I'm never quite surviving. I have to remember that many others feel these things, that I'm never actually "on my own". #mabsegrest #bellhooks

5th day of L.A Rooted all about #bravespace and #ancestral ways of protecting our bodies and spirit! Deconstructing patriarchy, colonization and it’s effects on our POC hextstory of struggle and resilience. With @survivalarts our womyn bodies not only practice ways of exercising their voice #donttouchme #survivaltactics and how to escape from a grab, Choke but also strengthen their awareness and strengthen their preventative skills. Jaime strengthen our youth, with valuable decolonial reads #bellhooks #agustoboal #pedagogyoftheoppresse#alchemist, but also with the physical ways to keep our bodies strong. Thank you and we will see you at the next workshop!! #protectouryouth #losangelesrooted #keepourculturealive #ancientknowledge It was awesome running around with Bamboo sticks swinging away in front of city hall! A monument that sits on Tongva land! Sits and tries to hide all the hangings occurred on our black and brown brothers, tries to erase our presence and culture, every decade with different tactics. #weareheretostay #nopueden

Today’s Saturday #artistspotlight is on Grace Lang, a mixed media artist. She creates 2D and 3D work to tell stories of triumph
.
.
.
Her concept stems from personal “demons”. Grace’s art beautifully depicts the internal struggles that plague us all. She creates mesmerizing visual expressions of those dark little thoughts that are at once frightening and sort of funny
.
.

Remember, not all bodies are loved or considered desirable in this imperialist white-supremacist capitalist patriarchy. (#bellhooks) Fuck that because all bodies are beautiful and amazing and are homes to phenomenal human beings. Black bodies. Brown bodies. Queer bodies. Fat bodies. Crip bodies. A person’s value should not be dictated by their body. So educate yourselves and keep unpacking how we view other people’s bodies, and our own. #sexualityeducation

I remember attending a puberty workshop for young girls and their mothers. The facilitator helped bridge generational gaps with sexuality conversations and I just knew that this field was where I wanted to be. She ended the workshop with homework for both girls and mothers: practice appreciating your body privately, every day. Before going to sleep, look at your naked body in the mirror. Touch your body, feel the weight of flesh and bone and LIFE. Thank your body, sending a message of appreciation for each body part, especially the ones society dictates as ugly.

So... what have you thanked your body for today? #NationalNudeDay #bodyappreciation
