Original mixed media artwork with watercolor, ink, and collage paper.
This is part of the March 2021 Daffodil series. Daffodils symbolize inspiration, renewal, hope, and rebirth because they are one of the first blooms in early spring. Read more here. And you can read more about the monthly series releases here.
Mutual aid is a powerful force.
Be bolstered by brace comrades.
be broken by belief.
the love that consists in this
willingness to risk everything for
the shock of liberation
which I suppose is what real surrender is--
and no one can teach it to you.
mutual aid offers a way forward.
through doing and learning
there is a freedom to actually be here,
both individually and collectively.
we need nothing less.
