It is with a heavy heart that I have to say goodbye to my oldest girl Mocha. She had an awesome 12 years of life with me, so this is more of a celebration of her life. She was over 100 years old in chicken years honestly so I think that’s pretty good. I got her when I was 8 years old and she had always been there laying out in the sun in the backyard while I tended to the other chickens ever since. She had the largest comb in existence and a missing toe but she was still perfect to me. Although I’m sad that she’s gone and a part of my childhood leaves with her, I’m glad that I gave her the best life any chicken could ask for. She was spoiled rotten and made sure that I knew she was. Rest In Peace sweet Mocha. ❤️

Molly Merlino, my amazing mother died 5 years ago today. “ I have always felt anointed by her love, it’s light like sunlight falling through broken panes onto the floor of a deserted house: we may go, it remains telling of goodness of being, of permanence. Every so often, when I look at the dark sky, I know she remains among the old endless blue lightedness of stars; or finding myself out in a field in November, when a strange starry perhaps first snowfall blows down across the darkening air, lightly, I know she is there, where snow falls flakes down fragile softly falling until I can’t see the world any longer, only it’s still shapes.” from The Hiding Places of Snow by Galway Kinney #mother#restinpeace#love#artist#activist
Now I know that everyone has heard, but recently we lost a huge voice and inspiration in the art and story telling community. Stan Lee is the man that inspired me to pick a pencil up and draw out what I feel and make stories for each one of them. Stan Lee was a legend amongst men, now he walks beside every other legend as he looks upon everything his masterpiece has done. May he Rest In Peace and never be forgotten❤️🙇🏻♂️

“It’s important to be strong in the face of loss.” Completely guilty of having had this preconceived notion of grief.
As if opening up/expressing made me a burden on others. Instead of identifying strength for what it really was - convincing myself out of bed and surviving to the best of my ability. Especially in those early grief days.
I tried opening up. Slowly at first. To those I trusted and more importantly those who listened. First about how much I missed him and later on about all that made me feel broken. #millennials#journeytohealing
Still feeling the afterglow of an amazing night at my book launch. 💫💞💫

The last year has been tough. Losing the most influential and inspiring artists in my life. Each one of them gave and taught me love, passion, and hard work. Since a kid I've been looking up to Stan Lee; Spider-Man being my fav superhero teaching me that even superhero have issues. and that kids like me can be extraordinary. He co-created an entire universe of characters that changed the world. I've always hoped to be as influential and amazing as him. Lil Peep blessing everyone with beautifully painful and raw music. Showing me that the pain we go thru in life doesn't have to define us. That we can move on, be strong and that being yourself is the most important thing. Don't let anyone define u. X changed my life ever since I first listened to 17. I felt he understood what it was like to feel alone/depressed. he really opened my eyes to mental health and music. He made me feel loved and that there are other kids like me who struggle on the inside. He spread love, peace, positivity and I can tell you his music saved lives and without him I don't know where I would be today. Mac Miller has been a staple in the music game since he first came on scene back in early 2000s. While I never listened to much of his music Swimming was one of my favorite albums of all time. I learned more about him as an artist from that project. Another person who struggled with their inner demons but used music to let out their emotions and he poured his heart and soul into everything he did. He was so talented and such a whole hearted and warm person. I wish I could have had the chance to meet him. as goes life we aren't guaranteed anything but right now. The legends we have lost this past year serve as a reminder that life is short and there's no time to waste. All of these guys from Stan to Peep spent their lives creating art, changing lives and being role models and idols for kids like me and millions of others. Be grateful for what you have and never stop creating. The world is a beautiful place when everyone is loving. Thank you to Stan, Peep, Jah, and Mac for changing my life and shaping me into the person I am today. I am eternally grateful for everything you gave the world.

With the holidays approaching, it’s always tough to think about what could have been. .
We spent thanksgiving 2011 together- we cleaned out a closet in our parents house while dancing to Justin Timberlake. Lol. I remember it like it was only last year, not 7 years ago. .
