Rantings, ravings, world domination. Welcome to my blog!

Lux in Tenebris

Dale Copeland MNZM is a goddess of assemblage, an ambi-lexical mathemagician, and an alchemist of potentiality. She’s a celebrated Taranaki artist, 6th Dan black belt in Taekwon-Do, infectiously giggly, and SUPER cute. She lives with more dead animals than live ones, and on the wall outside is written “Beware of Human.” She is my dream […]

Autistic + PhD Dr. Nick Walker is a legend, a miracle, a being of light, a professor, an aikido teacher and (pause for dramatic effect) autistic. She is best known for her book Neuroqueer Heresies and her work on neurodiversity and Neuroqueer Theory. (And especially appreciated by me as the first iconic autistic to ever […]

I am so over the idea of autism awareness, and half the time? I don’t even care about autism acceptance. What I’d like to see is some autism AWE. Because for every myth and straight-out lie that says what autistics can or should do, there are a heap of actual, real-life, blood-filled human autistics can-ning and should-ing across the globe. Here's the thing, Autistic World Domination is now. We are everywhere, and we are quietly (and loudly!) making the world our own! Your world, your way. Jolene 🙂

I kicked off my answer with a bit of initial rambling, um, yep, well I probably talk less, work longer, eat more chocolate… But actually? However you’re seeing me, […]

I haven’t left the house for a couple of weeks (as in, no outside requirements, not sick or anything). It’s been awesome. I’ve been buzzing around in my head and there’s soooo much I want to do! (I have To Do lists of To Do lists. And I love it!) So many exciting things are […]

Disclaimer: Staying home saves lives. Do what you need to do to get through this: for some people that will mean cleaning, for some that will mean creating, and for some that will mean sleeping, eating, or gaming. There’s no right way to do this, except to get it done the best way for you […]

The Other Side

You say yes; then you figure it out. Because when you know, just know, that you’re making a difference, it stops becoming a choice. Fear doesn’t get to be a reason to say no. The door opens; you go through it.     Event poster (Theresa Tongi) Velvety Goodness Legends Arohanoa Matthews & Paul Quicke. […]
