Time management is a feminist issue

Recently, I’ve been researching my ancestry. While uncovering all the layers and connections in my heritage has been thrilling, I’m also dismayed at how hard it is to find out about the women in my lineage. Census data is often centered around the head of the household, aka the cis gendered man. The way we[…]

No photoshop necessary

The other day I spent a ridiculous amount of time trying to photoshop my face. I have a bunch of swelling under my eyes these days from a unique combination of genetics, crying, and sleeplessness. I have a skin tag on my lower eye lid that sometimes I imagine is all people see when they[…]

Why is it so hard to be a beginner?

As a mama, I have the most unique privilege to witness my son’s firsts. Witnessing a tiny human learn to be in his body from crawling to standing to walking and now running almost as fast as his parents – it’s nothing short of remarkable. Now, I get to witness the first processing of ideas[…]

You’re going to get it wrong. Do it anyways

Black lives matter. We’re all experiencing a huge upheaval, a revolution that is reminding us that systemic racism in people is killing innocent black, brown, and people of color. My calling to you today, if you’re in space of: I don’t know what to do — is to acknowledge this: You’re going to get it[…]

My favorite type of time travel

Beloved, Here is a glimpse of one weekly prompt I’m sending my Time Keeper Collective group. I want you to join if you feel called. But/and I also want to share this practice with you because it’s been so powerful for me. xo- Rose Our world is extremely chaotic right now. Even making a decision[…]

A note to my warrior self

To the Rose in this photo, 4 years ago and 40 hours into labor of her baby. This is what I want you to know: Your baby will be here early tomorrow morning, as light begins to crack open the dawn. You have been moving mountains and calling upon the strength of your ancestors to[…]

6258518135891 years of quarantine

One of my favorite things about this quarantine, if I may, is how people keep writing things like: Today is the 137414518 day of quarantine. Time is relative, right? We all know about this ancient yet o-so-modern idea. And there’s no greater experience of this relative time than, well, now. One thing I know now,[…]

Made to be resilient

As corona virus sweeps through the world, I’ve thought a lot about our ancestors. Particularly my ancestors, who I know best (just like you know your ancestors best). I wrote this in an instagram post at the beginning of March: Your ancestors did this. Your lineage of people went through this, this feeling of unknown,[…]

They don’t see your insides

On being vulnerable, especially during corona time. Vulnerability is hard. I can’t imagine a life without it, because the most amazing connections come from it. Yet approaching doing something that makes me vulnerable: eh, some days I’d rather not. Recently, I was given the honor of giving a master class for Asha Frost’s Sacred membership,[…]

You’re in a unique position right now

(a pic of me, really pumped to be writing to to you this week!).  Dear creative one, I’ve missed writing to you weekly on all things creativity, time, and being human. I’ll be back at it some day soon. But, I do have words to share with you! I wrote a blog for the Joan Mitchell[…]
