The best revolutionary advice I received (via @der_bluthund on twitter) “Fight, Withdraw, Re-Equip, Fight, Withdraw, Re-Equip.”
This comic is the story of my life and the reason I am in hibernation mode in Miami right now. Last year my mind/body/soul took a beating… Last year I overdosed myself on information about corrupt politicians & World leaders, psycho-corporations, why we’re in War, how I’m to partly to blame for the killing of innocent children overseas (because I use petroleum based products here in the US- currently weening myself off of it), the military-industrial-complex, the petroleum-industrial-complex, what we humans are doing to our planet. Fukushima, the BP oil spill cover-up, main-stream media lies & cover-ups. Monsanto. GMO’s, BPA’s. Poisonous toxins legally allowed in our food, drinks, water, clothes, sunscreens, etc… because Big Pharma owns the FDA… making us sick, then selling us the cure… all for profit…
It’s enough to make a woman go mad. And I did.
But I still fought. I spent every penny I had on doing activism. I did nothing but activism last year. Nothing except overdose on information and lay in a ball on my bed, crying. Literally. All year. I dragged myself to Bonnaroo. Dragged. Because I thought it would help. And even there… I cried in my tent…
But I’m feeling so much stronger right now. I am in recovery mode in Miami, healing the wounds from last year. Taking care of myself. Preparing myself to join the revolution again. Working three jobs to pay off a couple of small bills. Meditating, dancing, getting sun, drinking lots of water (charged by the sun), spending time by the ocean, going to the local farmer’s market every weekend, buying lots of fresh, local, pesticide-free, non-gmo fruits and veggies. Preparing myself. I need to be strong and ready for the revolution. I haven’t given up. I haven’t turned my back on the revolution. I haven’t stopped. In fact, I’m coming up with new and creative ways to be involved. Creating costumes, and performance pieces that will help spread my message. Creating art pieces inspired by my environmental activism. It feels good. I feel good. For the first time, in a very long time.
If you are going through what I went through last year, reach out to me. I am here for you. I went through it alone. No one should have to go through it alone. Write me, if you need me. email@example.com
Peace & Stay Strong~~~~
