To be black and queer is to know violence everyday but it never gets old. The devastation feels new every time. Rest in power to all slain.
I send love to my queer and trans family today.
I send love to all the queer and trans latinx folx who held community last night.
I send love to all the victims of the Orlando shooting and their families.
I send love to all the queer and trans Muslims experiencing violence and erasure as this tragedy continues to unfold.
I send love.
May you take care of yourself however you need to.
I cast Lemon Balm for broken hearts,
I cast Motherwort to hold us,
I cast Sage for those risen to ancestor,
I cast Rosemary as we remember,
I cast Rose for love, always.
