If you cannot–will not–
love her body like
one loves a planet,
the nebulous mystery
of her movement...
If from where you stand
your view is still
too short in sight, in breadth
and you can’t yet behold
the sheer wonder of her form,
if you are not yet ready
for a pilgri...

Like most of us, I too have changed my mind about the coronavirus at least a few times– our ongoing opinions and reactions seem to quickly become sidelined by an unfolding larger than our capacity to predict or sort out. It has left us mostly dumbstruck: In my lifetime...

Are we witnessing the Earth's perfect storm?

It might seem, on some days, that the women of the world have still an endless way to go. Like we've lost more power than we thought we could, having come this far. It might seem that what we have been fighting for for too lo...

On some days, I wake up and I don’t know how to keep a mere semblance of peace, or to even begin making room for the joy of living–– when the world has fallen badly on its face, and I am to blame just as much as anyone who wakes up this morning.

On some days, I wake up...
