Sometimes poetry comes in different shades, shapes, and textures. Flex’em if you got’em. #rezarites #ambitiousblackfeminist #3amblack #poetry #nationalpoetrymonth #nailart #friendshipgoals

Fam, I didn’t come to Costa Rica for endless adventures. Rather, I came for the tranquility that lives on the other side of the hustle rainbow, if you let it, and to reach my goal of acquiring even just a baby amount of proficiency around surfing. I am keeping things mellow, as a reminder of how to slow my heart rate, and to build muscle memory around staying focused and maintaining joy in times of uncertainty. I’m happy to report that I’ve already made an offering of thanks to the sea, in the form of an earring now decorating “la sirena” – sister to Gaia Gallactica*. FYI: I’ve got one more surf lesson tomorrow if anyone wants to make a last minute give – while taking advantage of a limited time-only collection of #3amblackpoetry. But keep in mind: There is no pressure at all. Instead, picture a circle of love and joy that mirrors double dutch; you can jump in if you want, watch from the side, or keep walking to the destination that is your own.

Sunshine, laughter, y la Pura Vida,

Hey fam,
I’m super grateful for all the birthday wishes and donations that have been sent my way. And let me tell you: I did not let you down. My first surf lesson was yesterday (on my actual birthday; we did it!), and I have another one today. Well really I should say we had, and we have, because this trip and this joy is meant to be shared. FYI: my typewriter repairs are done, and I’ll pay and pick it up, for poetry events and public sharing, upon return. There is still time to donate toward additional surf lessons or activities while I’m here in Costa Rica, and funds not applied here will go toward paying for the typewriter repairs. Give if you want, laugh at my audacity if you prefer, but know I claim my right to joy, either way, and I offer it as well. Any gift of ten or more bucks will result in you receiving a limited time-only copy of the #3amblackpoetry collection: “I’ve Come to Find It Lovely” with pieces by me and Dakota Castro.

To my fellow scorpios, remember to sting with love. It is our time, but we must use our powers for good.

Pura Vida and laughter,
Reza Rites

Hi friends, no pressure at all if this isn’t resonating, but in case it does…

I’m doing a birthday-inspired digital pass-the-hat campaign for anyone who wants to contribute to me taking surfing lessons* in Costa Rica. For those who saw my recent post – I tried to invite less decadence for my birthday since everything could be refunded or changed, but the universe would have none it. If it sparks your curiosity, please feel free to read my extended ask, and manifesto, declaring my comfort seeking support for joy and restoration on my @3amblack accounts. Or…
