happy new year pals!
I'm a tad bit worried I made something that got lost in the shuffle. This time of year is so busy and bizarre. Between christmas and the new year, I barely know what day of the week. There's so much content and noise. I want to make sure you saw some things I created last month.
I'm writing you from somewhere between NYC & Dubai in route to Bali. I am embarking on a lengthy trip, more to come in spirts on instagram.
Before I left was a whirlwind, I finished a project (more on that below), went to Michigan for the holiday, taught a workshop at Kripalu, and moved out of my apartment.
But before all of that, I released a special episode of my podcast.
I wanted to do an end of year clips episode and when I thought about a topic to center it around, it had to be a clips show compiling all of the times we spoke about heartbreak, breakups, and the growth they can lead to. It could have been a drinking game how often I brought up breakups this year. What I find by talking about it as much as I did for an entire year is how simultaneously universal and lonely this feeling is.
This podcast has always mirrored wherever i am most curious about and this year was no exception. it sounds like a bummer of an episode but it was actually quite optimistic, full of wisdom, and even at times funny.
One thread throughout the episode was how heartbreak often informs creative work.
I was no exception. I spent the fall in Brooklyn making a project that felt correct.
it has two parts:
1. this digital zine: the soothe kit for breakups --> for when you're feeling tender and need to soothe yourself right after a break up.
(( can be sent to a friend ))
2. a digital workshop: the solve kit workshop for breakups. --> this is for after some time passes and you're ready to grow.
And we hosted a little launch party for the project before I left.
Check out the episode & both projects and let me know if you have any questions or feedback. And please send this to anyone with a tender heart that it might be useful for.
