    Rai,thank you for sharing this story. Your messages resonate truths I carry. Your capacity to hold multiple reals, expands the spaces within, between, and among us. Thea’s joy meeting the world has been nurtured, tended, tweaked by birthing from such a multifaceted vessel reflecting prisms, opening to storms & rainbows.🎶💕🌱🐣⚘

    You describe motherhood & the way it rips open the soul so eloquently. I resonated with your description of being on medication & the way thoughts evaporate. One of my favorite poets, Nayyirah Waheed has a tiny but giant ode to grieving that came to mind as I read this. “Grieve. So you can be free to feel something else.” I appreciate you opening up about your journey.
