My sketch of the day 2/9/11 : Ok, Heart. Not too far, tho…

It has been brought to my attention that possibly, maybe, perhaps I think too much. I rely soley on intellect, rationality, and knowledge to make decisions, percieve life, and view other.

As a child, a passing of someone I loved opened my eyes to the practical side of my life: I saw responsibility, commitment, the ‘requirement’ of being unemotional, the need to meet obligations and emotional compromise.

As an adult, I’m scared of being vulnerable. I am scared to let people in.

I’m trying to remedy that… Time to let my heart tell me things my head is keeping from me.

man…. i can already tell it’s going to be hard as f*ck =(

“In October 2010, GABNet transformed into two new, dynamic organizations: the mass organization AF3IRM and the service and advocacy institution, Mariposa Center for Change. This November 25 to December 10, the Mariposa Center for Change will be celebrating the 16 Days Against Gender Violence and also introducing ourselves to the community.”

This piece is dedicated to their movement.

Part of the proceeds made will be donated to AF3IRM and The Mariposa Center for Change so that they will continue to fight for the rights of women and children both nationally and globally.
