As much as it is an essential task to support others financially, emotionally, and as a co-conspirator in community and revolution, I also can seek support, inspiration, and joy within this community and this revolution. I allow myself to be uplifted by our victories. I allow myself to sing love songs and learn and write new ones. I allow my eyebrows to separate, my jaw to soften, and my fingers to curl open at every chance I get. I allow myself to trust that the new house we are fighting and struggling to build together can hold me in the moments that I need to be soft, be held, be nourished. “If I can’t dance, I don’t want to be part of your revolution.” -Emma Goldman
