Happy Birthday, Emma Goldman!

Standard

Today is the anniversary of the birth of Emma Goldman. She was born in 1869 in Kaunas, Lithuania.

Emma Goldman was an anarchist, a midwife, a proponent of birth control, an advocate for free love, an antiwar activist, and a public speaker. She was a badass and a hellraiser. In honor of Emma, let’s all try to be a little bit more like her, at least for today.

About Blaize Sun

I live in my van, which makes me a rubber tramp. I like to see places I’ve never seen before, and I like to visit the places I love again and again.

I like to play with color. I make collages and hemp jewelry and cheerful winter hats. I take photographs and (sometimes, not in a long time) write poetry. All of those things make me an artist.

Although I like to spread joy and to make people laugh, my wit can be sharp. I try to stay positives in all situations, to find the goodness in all people. But I often feel compelled to point out bullshit when I smell it.

I like to have fun, to dance, to eat yummy food, to sit by a fire and share stories. I want to know what people hold dear and important, not just make surface small talk.

This blog is a way for me to share stories. This blog is made up of my stories, rants, and observations, as well as my photographs.

I'd love to know what you think. Please leave a reply
