My mom always tells me stories about how when I was a toddler she would find me alone outside, barefoot examining leafs and rocks and exploring our backyard. 😂 I used to think ‘what an odd 3 year old’ but now im like what a MOOD. Nature makes me so happy- as an adult I still find myself barefoot, exploring the yard, listening to the birds, watering my garden and feeling such a sense of peace. What a gift Mother Nature is, one we don’t deserve. Now I just need sheep, chickens and horses @iamchrislane. ****also plz take care of our planet and each other, thank uuuu 🌎♻️🌈👩🏾🤝👨🏼

‘Let’s walk’ I’ve shared my stance on the murder of George Floyd and the decades of systemic oppression and racism black people have faced and continue to face today- something I will never understand and have never experienced because of the color of my skin. This video, representing the majority of people honoring George and the long list of names who have also lost their lives at the hands of police or wanna be cops, gave me some hope. The news seems to skim over these images (I first saw on social media, not on the news, thanks to my friend @justinanderson). I’ve included a link in my bio to an organization empowering change and embracing leadership and education. I encourage you to donate🤍Let’s walk.
