you can take the activist out of the society but you can’t take the activist out of the activist.


Welcome back Arielle London, from yourself.

Dear Me,

You are dope. Let’s just start there. Only you know your experience, and only you know the balancing beam that you do one-handed cartwheels on. Well…some people have seen you do those cartwheels and they don’t know why; some don’t. They can’t comprehend it. But some do. Steer clear of the spirits who do and pretend like they don’t. That’s a world of hate that no one needs. 

But some do. And that is where you feel true support. Trust what pushes you in a productive direction, not only positive. The feeling of happiness can be fleeting but fill your soul with joy and you can feed yourself for lifetimes.

I tried on a different version of the name Arielle. It didn’t work. I worked too hard as Arielle London, and it always came out on the mic anyways.

Keep grinding. I’m proud of you. 

Stay you,


circa 2012
