Rooted to Resiliency: A CALL TO FREEDOM


Do you know how small island nations become imperial powers? They colonise and terrorise the mind. How else can they wield power with so few and so little land?

Can you free your mind?
Can you unlock the doors that small island thinking boxes into neat little origami shapes...to disguise the fullness of freedom?

Mind games are like chains we cannot see,
make them visible.

Rooted to Resiliency
is about connecting to our truths,
reclaiming our voices,
from lost lands and far off, frozen faces, forgotten places,
standing in the here and now
where your destiny is written 
by you.
By your heart.
By your truth.

I may have no family tree,
but I stand here before you,
rooted
to
RESILIENCY.
For my two mothers -- of body, spirit and eternal hope.
(t.b.c.)
