And So I Thrive, June 2019

  I’ve written about my experiences with Epstein Barr here before.  A few months ago I found a book entitled “The Complete Dictionary of Ailments and Diseases” by Jacques Martel.  It lists the emotional constructs at the root of all diseases and dis-eases that humans experience.  When I looked up my symptoms, the wisdom that […]

The Greater the Risk, The Greater the Reward. October, 2018 (3 Images)

So… I tore my calf muscle. Everything happens for a reason. I’m grateful for the good that will come from this experience. But right now, I’m stuck in my apartment because I can’t walk.  I’m taking a ton of Epsom Salt baths to soothe my calf muscle and eating a lot of pomegranate seeds, because […]

Self Love, Ballet, and the #sensualselfiechallenge, September 2018 (13 Images)

For the last five days, there’s been a sensual selfie challenge going on via Instagram.  And I decided to join it.  The entire purpose of the sensual selfie challenge is to encourage womxn to take up space in their own worlds, to embrace their sensuality, and to own their own sexual power.  And it was […]

The Ones Left On The Cutting Room Floor, May 2018 (13-ish Images)

I was scrolling through my old photos looking for some inspiration for a new photo shoot, and I came upon all of these self portraits that were taken for this project, but for one reason or another, never got published.  And it got me thinking about how we edit ourselves – in social media, IRL, […]

Fake Head Shots, May 2018 (6 Images)

One thing you don’t think about when you shave your head is that you will have to have a new head shot every two weeks while you’re growing your hair back out because your hair never stops changing from one awkward phase to another. OK let’s be real.  Nobody has time for head shots every […]

When A Feminist Shaves Her Head, March 2018 (1 Image)

When people shave their heads, there’s usually a radical reason.  They want to support a loved one going through cancer.  They want to express a sentiment of hate towards a different race.  They have become a devote of Krishna.  When a feminist shaves her head, it’s because she’s rejecting the patriarchal suggestion of the feminine […]

On Art and Yoga, November 2017 (7 Images)

A lot of people have been asking me lately: “What are you working on?” “What are you writing?” “What are you creating?” And my answer seems to bring a little disappointment to those eagerly awaiting the next play written by Claire Christine Sargenti.  (I promise there will be another one!)  Sometimes I say that I’m […]

On Censorship, June 2017 (10 Images)

This wasn’t originally going to be a piece on censorship. It was going to be about not taking yourself so seriously. But then it ended up being kind of serious. Around a month ago I figured it was high time that I color my hair.  I had never done it before, and I decided that I […]

National Eating Disorder Awareness Week, March 2017 (10 Images)

This week is National Eating Disorder Awareness Week. Contrary to common stereotypes, eating disorders affect all kinds of people, regardless of gender, ethnicity, age, socioeconomic status, sexuality, or background. In fact, 30 million Americans will struggle with an eating disorder at some point in their lives.  But despite the staggering number of people affected and […]

Valentine’s Day, February 2017 (4 Images)

I’ve noticed a lot of hate and confusion going around lately.  And I’m sure you have too.  It’s unavoidable in our political atmosphere, but I’ve been noticing it at work and in my personal life as well.  The world is not perfect.  People are not perfect.  I am not perfect.  But the world is not […]
