Forming new habits is hard, but I knew that by moving to a desert town in Arizona, my old habits would need to be shattered. Number one on the list: taking time to care properly for my skin after spending the day shooting outdoors.
As a black woman who faces daily racial traumas, who unpacks those and explains cultural appropriation for non-POC, my days are stressful. I look to nature for self-therapy. I truly believe that we are mini-earths. We have our own ecosystems within us, trying toadapt to the stressesof our own unpredictability. To ensure that my physical body can endure a lot of storms, I spend my days outdoors either for work or leisure.
