A blog of doodles made of words= WordyDoodles.

Sharing inspiration where I find it, from science to fashion to politics to architecture to music.

***Ask anything.*** Especially for those of you looking for straight up honest loving inspiration. Also, ask your political organizing questions. Or your fashion opinion questions. Or whatever's on your mind. I'll answer.

What is #worthsaving? A video that gets to the heart of what we love and reminds us that our beautiful world, our miraculous lives, are worth saving.

Gymnastics and dance fans have a moment around 0:57. :)

On this day 13 years ago, we cried and didn’t know when we would ever stop crying. I remember how anxiously we met up, and then we went home—not just “went,” maybe more like “journeyed” home that day. It took hours. Not only for me, not only for everyone in my law school, but for everyone in the entire city of DC. Hundreds of thousands of people walking home, walking miles. We knew we got to live that day, but… how to explain what it felt like to be told to prepare for Something Else. There was much more we’d live through (snipers, anthrax, bomb threats, neighborhood shootings), but we got to live and keep going and I didn’t buy the duct tape and plastic sheets. And I moved so far away and I kept love closest. I had babies. I play at gymnastics and yoga with much less rigor than they do. I just enjoy moving my body. I still learn, I still trust, I love more than ever.

I loved this shot of @acroarmy rehearsing, with @arthurdavis3 contemplating amidst the athletes in motion.
