Pinky Swear Series

Hi friends,

Been sober now for 15 months.  I can say it has its perks.  I don’t wake up in the bathtub wondering what I made myself the night before.  I have on the other hand gravitated towards different things.  Like being an adult who pays their bills on time.  Studio time and work.  I’m still that Pippy Long Stockings type, rough around the edges don’t forget with sauce on the side.   I have grown a tougher calis through the years but I realize that maybe the more I see the truth in things even though as harsh as it may be I can start to grow in a different way then just push others towards the door.  Being vulnerable is scary.  Like I’d rather hide scary.  I’d rather Play with fire, spiders, lions and snakes than be vulnerable.  

I am going to start by asking different questions to change my beliefs about the world.  Questions that create vision and support to others.  Working on me being more aware and asking people in a the moment instead of thinking about it.  Get messy in 2017. 

 Grandpa Grose was a cussing sailor whose favorite swear word was you fumble finger cock sucker. He would cuss and swear up a storm making his war models. I can’t say I entirely want to be more like him but I want to test out his roughness.  He was a World War 2 vet.  He managed the men of men he had to be tough.  If you weren’t a brute you weren’t really a man.  He learned a lot in 4 years than a man could learn in a life time.  

 See he was 6ft 4 maybe 5 but to me he was a giant.  His hands were huge.  So how in the hell did he make these models by hand many from scratch. The tiny little pieces the size of my 5 year old pinky nail.  A real creative go for it kind of man.  He has models he’s made across the country in museums. Crass & ballsy the type they don’t make anymore.

Karmic Upheaval


Friday the 13th is a magical day and number.  Somehow the attraction to something others are afraid gives me this sense of ohhhh ahhhh.  Naughty girl!  Although digging deeper into the real meaning of Friday the thirteenth why does it have this power over the western culture.  Freyja a goddess associated with love, sex, beauty, fertility, gold, seiðr, war, and death. The number 13 is considered sacred.  

FRIDAY THE 13th 

Join Jesy G and 4 other female artists for “karmic upheaval”!  Ancien is a local bike shop accross from “woman made gallery” on Milwaukee Ave.  Chicago IL! We will have music and drinks available along with Art for sale.  Come experience a group of delightful women and their creation.

Who? You, Artists, Restaurants, Sat Nam Yoga Chicago, and All Your Favorite West Loop Digs!

Come together to support our neighbors under the sun, with music, food, drinks and the collective goodness of humanity.

Join us for a beautiful summer afternoon of gathering with neighbors for a cause that hits home. The event will benefit the I Grow Chicago Peace House located at 6402 Honore in West Englewood. Our mission is to provide a safe, inter-generational haven to children and at-risk community members. Through sustainable farming and educational programs in nutrition, movement, yoga and the arts, we foster creativity, wellness and empowerment for individuals in the community as a whole. Located just minutes south of the prosperous west loop it is no secret that our neighbors in West Englewood live in a place far removed, where crime and violence is all too common. Your donations will fund our 2016 Fall Programming- providing children a supervised and safe place to play outside, breakfast and lunch, yoga, and the arts. As well as day care to support working parents.
Last year, through generous donations and volunteers the I Grow Peace House was able to provide:

• Kids Summer Camp (included: yoga, mindfulness teachings, games, gardening, breakfast and lunch)

• One Summer Plus Camp for at risk youth (included: yoga, life skills lasses, urban farming)

• 2 fieldtrips took many people out of the neighborhood for a fun day at the Zoo.

• 258 kids ages 14-20 were mentored through Yoga

• Afterschool Programming and Tutoring

• 160 Thanksgiving Turkeys

• 100 Pre-cooked Meals

• 330 Children, 64 families were sponsored at the Holiday Gift Drive-empowering •parents to give gifts to their children.

• Job placement assistance- business attire, mock interviews and informational classes were provided.

• Women’s Yoga

• Laundry machine usage

• Community Dispensary
We are currently touching the lives of 300+ kids per week

. We hope that you are able to take an active part in providing resources, much needed love and awareness to this cause. Join us and support the great work that is being done and help the residents of West Englewood create a sustainable community.
