Dream with eyes wide open &
hearts tilted up to the sky.

I occupy space as a woman of colour in the matrix of coloniality. I personally identify as a Tagalog child of the Ancient River, a fishing-town daughter of the archipelago beyond the gender binary. I'm an immigrant and a settler on unceded Indigenous lands. I miss my homelands and want to nourish my communities. I don't exactly know what I'm doing other than I feel compelled to use my voice to speak truth to my experiences. I don't presume this will make a difference to others, but it might. I'm a drop in the ocean that will break the bedrock of colonial injustices. This is the hope.

I acknowledge the Darkinjung peoples on whose land I live & work on today.  I offer my respects to Elders past, present and emerging across all Nations on this country - and extend this solidarity to First Nations peoples around the world. From Darkinjung to the Amazonas, from Palestine to the Pasifikas and the so-called Philippines. Always was, always will be.
