How do we deal with loss? It’s taboo. It’s hidden. It’s triggering. This is the last photo I got to take with my grandma Rita. She left her body yesterday. Today I was “fine”. I got some work done, but couldn’t figure out why I felt down and distracted. And then I realized, I wasn’t mourning. Tears poured out of me like rainfall. And I got a call to share - put down my walls of professional pics and the well crafted captions, and let you really see me. My grandma Rita and my grandfather got divorced before I can even remember and she never remarried. My heart breaks that she never got to love again. My mom and dad divorced when I was 2. Calling the relationship contentious is putting it lightly. My grandfather (her ex husband) hasn’t spoken to his brothers in 20+ years over some bad business deal. My mom barely speaks to her brother, he and his family lived blocks from my wedding but didn’t come. My father is 60+ and with a woman who almost broke our relationship. His dad passed 2 years ago, and he hasn’t spoken to his step mom since. It’s a daily effort. My mom and I struggled to get along for the first 25 years of my life. It’s a daily effort now. It’s time to pull back the veil on the connection between LOVE and LOSS, and why we have to do better. It was witnessing all of this loss - over stupid human shit like money and business - that made me connect the dots. These fragmented relationships were a tool for reflection: realized I couldn’t repeat the patterns. So I started calling my grandma every couple weeks. We would just chat about life and work. She never made me feel judged no matter what saga I shared or what job I was fired from. She was sweet and loving and kind. Relationships of all kinds, in all stages are our TEACHERS. Learn from the ones you’ve lost. Pay attention to the ones that trigger you. Awaken to your families patterns and do better. You don’t have to be right to forgive. You don’t have to be wrong to apologize. Love while you still can bc loss is certain. I love you. Thank you for teaching me that I can make the effort just because I can. And that it’s a good enough reason. Tell someone you love them . Don’t wait. 💛

I’M NOT A REGULAR MOM // I’m a #BonusMom 👨👩👧 We celebrated Easter today because we flexible AF when it comes to co-parenting. 🙌🏼 TBH, Dustin and P’s Mom had co-parenting on lock, even before I came along. And that was a major selling point to me easing into a relationship that involved a child. I had always shied away from that. It’s not an easy job raising a tiny human to basically not be an asshole to the world. 🤣 I had a Bonus Mom that I absolutely adored. #RIP 💕 And, of course, my Mom who is a great example of unconditional love. I’m lucky my examples are strong to be there for little P. P and I have a super-fun relationship. We belt Frozen and The Greatest Showman to/from school, she loves to open and review my happy mail and I love our snuggle time.
Meu tio-primo Danúbio Gonçalves partiu ontem. Tenho lindas lembranças dele que não cabem todas aqui agora, mas lembrei daquela que me parece a mais preciosa, o portrait da minha Tia Aida, ainda bem jovem, sentada em uma cadeira, feito em 48. Depois de desenhá-la e ganhar um prêmio com a obra, eles casaram. Foram pais de minhas primas Sandra, Tania e do Alan. Morei lá na casa deles para me preparar para a faculdade na década de 80. Era onde ele também tinha seu ateliê e eu passava as manhãs de verão tomando sol no terraço onde ele também se bronzeava, enquanto colocava as litogravuras para secar. Nesta época, quando eu acabava de sair da casa dos meus pais, a Tia Aida ( a menina do portrait) foi minha mãe. Me orientou tanto que até hoje sua voz ecoa dentro de mim. Devo a ela muito do que me tornei. As outras mulheres que estão aqui retratadas eu encontrei fazendo uma rápida pesquisa no Google, acredito que a terceira é a tia novamente. Danúbio era primo-irmão do meu pai. Ambos eram trinetos de Bento Gonçalves e carregavam nos atos as atitudes revolucionárias de homens vanguardistas, modernos, defensores dos direitos humanos e feministas. Pela riqueza e beleza dos retratos deste post a gente tem uma ideia do amor que o artista tinha pelas mulheres . Feliz por ter nascido nesta família. Feliz por saber que venho de gente que lutou por causas maiores e que venceu a vida com dignidade e respeito aos outros. Danúbio deixa uma vasta obra dedicada à arte e ao ser humano. Obrigada tio, vai na paz. #rip #art #dan úbiogonçalves

Your brother Mycroft is so much like you. He snuggles and comforts me almost the same way. I miss your silly grin. People, get a rescue pup. They love you like no other. And if not then love them all the same and they’ll love you. Dogs are the gateway to compassion and we need more of that these days.
