These are some photos taken by my beloved cohort member, Patrick. They are the opening stances for yesterday's brief but trembling performance in the amphitheater space at Pratt. I called on Kali, the Destroyer and Mother of the World to cleanse me. I asked for help processing the confining terms of the institution. I asked for help feeling free while insanity rages around me. When She arrived, she was unstoppable and her intensity lit a fire in my heart that produced the purifying tears I needed. What a blessing to be reminded of my aliveness. How extraordinary it is to have the chance to share this experience with the most amazing group of people I've ever met.
