This election has broken many hearts, including my own. I don’t care that Hillary lost. I care that a campaign of hatred won. I wish that I could tell you something new, some new perspective on why we need to be vigilant and aware. I wish that I could illuminate all of the reasons our people and our Earth matter.
Until I have a more cogent way of expressing my grief, I will just offer the photo of me smiling back at you and giving you the peace sign. I’m here. I’m safe. And I care a great deal about the ability to create art. So I will continue. And I hope you do too. To all of the diverse voices out there, you deserve to be heard. I am listening.
