Don’t come near me unless you want to be disrupted.

I will:

Upturn a cliche and write it to a new form
Eradicate generalisation and turn it specific
Challenge a belief system if your face is sad
Think from different perspectives always…
Look at one feeling, idea, person from multiple points of view at once
Break apart binaries good/bad right/wrong that imprison our minds
Turn objectivity to subjectivity and then reverse it
Unpack revolutionary, anarchist, activist, environmentalist…..creative
Bounce from one archetype to another from muse to vampire thanks Jung
Shatter expectation if it is judgemental and cruel
Surprise with imagination and odyssey travelled
Thrive with encouragement and inspiration
Question our wired generation
Devastate prejudice and bias that hurts others
Advocate freedom and fight for love, honour, decency and respect.
Look through lens of post structural, scientific, modern, psychological
and head towards Neo Post or Beyond the Post…
Research from Foucault to Derrida to Decartes to Hegel to Jung to Freud
Think creatively, innovatively, strategically, laterally and emotionally
Live on the edge, the fringe, from the inside, the outside and be free
Do what you don’t expect….

…because I have been told since I was a little girl that I
think too much… ‘Leave your mind behind next time’

They said to me:

You feel too much
You are too much because not only can you think you can feel too much…
Your too intense
(Did they think these words would silence me…remove my voice…
stop my mind…)

Too much for Who?
Too much for What?
Too much for You?
Too much too much too much
Much too much
Makes me want to scream…too much.

I will:


As long as my mind is free and my voice can speak and my heart can
feel I will disrupt death in life, cruelty to others and intolerance
of difference. And live full and free to my last breath.

Too much……….never :)
