Home is an interesting and vague concept. Is it where you were born or what your genes claim? Is it where you feel safe or where you dream yourself to be? Or is it just a state of mind? Whatever it is, I feel homesick all the time. Maybe it’s the confusion. Maybe it’s the longing of a place that I haven’t found yet. Or maybe it’s just the rebel in me desiring not belong to anywhere.
In a year where tyranny, bigotry, and hate seems to be winning. A year where artists, rebels, and outcasts keep being taken from us…The world needs us: the freaks, queers, artists, writers, activists, resisters, revolutionaries, rebels, dreamers, creators, thinkers, poets, philosophers, deviants, outcasts, pacifists, fighters, and lovers more than ever.
Rise up and unite against the Empire, my rebel friends. ✊🏻✊🏽✊🏿

Huneker insisted that art has nothing to do with any ism. “Nietzsche himself is the proof of it,” he argued; “he is an aristocrat, his ideal is the superman because he has no sympathy with or faith in the common herd.” I pointed out that Nietzsche was not a social theorist but a poet, a rebel and innovator. His aristocracy was neither of birth nor of purse; it was of the spirit. In that respect Nietzsche was an anarchist, and all true anarchists were aristocrats, I said
