Looking for an inspiring, thoughtful magazine to read? Issue seven of Radical is here.
This issue boasts seven contributors of art and poetry. They are Inisa Fajra, Gia M. Hamilton, Jacq, Iris Orpi, Jasmine Farrell, Amanda Kizemart and Leah Oviedo.
Our theme is self-care in activism this issue. Whether you are creating sustainable change on the streets, a home, or work, it is vital to practice a self-care routine so you don’t burn out.

Poetry

Poetry: Rewritten Life

Most days I wake up ready for the world. Some days I wake up exhausted from trying to create a life that I own. Either way, I’m only here today. Tomorrow is not guaranteed. So, I feel all the things, try my best to release what doesn’t support me, allow my friends to have their own space,  and give myself hugs each day. I love myself because I am finally making my dreams a reality and I have learned so much.

  • Be a writer.  Check.
  • Be an artist. Check.
  • Learn how to heal truama. Check.
  • Lean how to grieve healthily. Check.
  • Learn how to be my own best friend. Check.
  • Learn how to play guitar. Check.
  • Travel to a foreign country by myself. Check.

I still have a lot to learn, but I can feel pride in knowing what I have learned so far. As the song lyrics go, I don’t know where I’m going, but I know where I’ve been. For you, I hope today you wake up feeling ready for the world. I’ll hold space for you, but you need to hold space for yourself.

I dedicate this poem to all my friends and family who are trying. I love you….

Artwednesday

I was going to call it wartsday, but didn’t want to have people think I was celebrating wart day. Is there a wart day?  There probably should be. Anyway…. I drew these this week. I have been on a face-profile-crazy-hair kick for a while and am loving it.

I am mailing signed cards to fans on my Facebook page.

Art – Dreaming Portrait

I took an old pillowcase(I like to recycle) and stretched it across a new wooden frame.  Then I decorated it with ink gel pens. I call it ‘Dreaming’.

Enjoy.
