marshmallowmegamama: Support youth media makers in Detroit! Donate here! The thing I love most about Earthworks is how dedicated they are to transformation. The program is a part of Capuchin Soup Kitchen in Detroit, which spent most of it’s time in Detroit as a charity organization. That is: they provided food for hungry people. It made sense—they’re a branch of Franciscan monks that have made...

summer is such a strange time. a week has passed since i finished my ma coursework, and i still haven’t gotten over the push it took to get there. i’ve avoided most outside contact for almost a month and i haven’t been able to ease back into it yet. i’m trying to see people and trying to finish up two big projects by june 1, so there’s enough going on that i do...
