POSTCARD #6: Say Yes Mural at Fitzroy, Melbourne 2017

It’s three in the morning and I can’t sleep. I haven’t been writing, and I can’t really share anything ~current~ for now. But this postcard will do. I thought I’d write you one.

I was in Australia when people were asked to vote for marriage equality. It wasn’t even a vote to make it law but the energy throughout the city can be felt. I knew immediately they would say yes. Or at least 57.8% of them.

I would see the rainbow flag anywhere – in posters, in lights, in the fricking city hall. In murals, especially. I love how the city bloomed with art in this occasion – like there’s no other way to do it.

And in December, it was made law. Gay people can marry in Australia. And it was beautiful. So, so beautiful.

Traveling can indeed open your eyes but also leave oneself with frustration; and ask – why do I stay where I do?

Can’t wait to travel again.

He likes to believe that his name is so unique he feels confident to ask you to search his name instead of giving his social media handles.
