This week’s episode is delayed because I simply had to try and get our guest, Adrienne Maree Brown to join in. I succeeded and what follows is a reflection on the vitality found in focus, where and how we can direct it, along with its alchemical power. Just before releasing this week’s episode, Brown referred to her newest blog post on Instagram. I read it and realized it was centered around the same topic of attention and focus that I was talking about! We were having two similar conversations, at the same time, but in separate parts of the net, and I felt that it was important they converge, however briefly into one, and thankfully Adrienne and the universe agreed. Her blog post, her message for Femme Too Deep, and her work as a whole are so inspiring to me. I think you will find them equally so.
Until next week, blessed power and love to you all.

About Adrienne Maree Brown:
Adrienne Maree Brown is an activist, organizer, educator, writer, soon-to-be podcaster (!!!), pleasure activist (!), anti-authoritarian (she defied Obama himself by sneaking a selfie at his Foundation Summit), and an overall boss ass. She is a true hero to this world, as well as an Octavia E. Butler scholar, an Ursula Le Guin Feminist Sci-Fi Fellowship recipient—two names that make me drool—and she is a doula. Her book Emergent Strategy (currently holding my Kindle hostage) is a self-help book for the future, it transcends beyond the self to include our society and the world. Adrienne is also a sister, an auntie, and the kind of present soul that enlivens you to the point you feel you may burst and scare it away. I have never felt so understood and validated in my beliefs. She is a kindred soul, and I look forward to her continued work and up-coming projects, including a podcast with her sister and an Ursula Le Guin documentary!

Thank you Adrienne! I hope you will bless with your wisdom again. Blessed power and infinite thanks to you.
