We all come to earth and receive a download. We go from the abyss of yet-to-being, to a moving thing with a soul + identity. Our identity is software that we download when we enter the system out from the womb. This software is what I (and many others around me and before me) am trying to disrupt, deconstruct so that we can be free. Photos by Ayisha Gariba.

THE CASCADE COLLECTION
Understanding wealth in all its forms means recognizing the abundance provided and continually flowing from Mother Earth. Like a Cascade - the abundance flows deep down - I feel it as love gathering into a pool of abundance deep within me. These waves of newness, difference, and transformation bring the magnifying glass on us, and helps us to identify the space in our lives for our redemption so we can live lives of true substance.
