sifting through so many outrageous notes from Baba. they literally leap off the screen. for public consumption now tho, these words from him that Faryn shared this morn: "...many of us are living as though our lives are someone else's occupied territories. We must decolonize our lives, for our bodies and dreams and passions are no one's occupied territories... None of us is just like everybody else: We don't have to be like everybody else to be guaranteed the right to safe and whole existences. We want to create a world in which everyone is able to discover and define and live who they are, who they are becoming, with the option to change several times throughout their lives."
