A year ago, I facilitated a poetry and meditation workshop through the Los Angeles Parks and Recreation Department and wrote with some pretty amazing people. It made me want more of that—writing and sharing in a community founded on softening. I wanted to learn from people who want to contribute something meaningful, honor those they’ve lost, and speak to the heartbreak we’ve all experienced in myriad ways.
I began working to figure out how I could create more of that. One sleepless night after my beautiful balcony garden was surprise demolished by my landlord, and with no repair date in sight, I sat in my living room surrounded by a 4 ft tall geranium plant, a 7 ft tall candlebra tree, two different potted calendula, a vining tomato strung up into the blinds of the window, all the most aromatic kitchen herbs, aloe bursting out of its container, and nine boxes of books (because of course we were gonna move), and it made a kind of poetry.
In this moment of reorganization, I understood what I have always kept close: pages and plants. They have created a lot of magick in my life. And I understood this was the path ahead of me.
So, I humbly introduce The Write Magick, my new website built with all the intentions and heart of MoonSpit Poetry, masterfully developed by Josh McCall, and the home for my offerings as a place of softening into storytelling. The Write Magick is my way of telling you that your intuition is a magnetic force and your creativity, however you express it, is magick. And it’s my way of doing more of what I love to do in the world. Thank you for being at this initiation moment and for your support that led me here in the first place.
