Ghost

My Button Collection

Fact: You’re a man.
Truth: I’ve never before been so happy to be a woman.

Please ask me what I want, because I’m dying to tell you that I crave seconds and thirds of you now on my plate, and a side dish of you as dessert even later.

The world closed in heavy on my soul. So I went to him. I wrapped myself in him, forgot the world, and let him swallow me whole.

There has been a lot of back and forth about the ASL ‘rap battle’ that was hosted on Jimmy Kimmel Live… Most have no idea that Jo Rose, who was introduced as an ‘interpreter,’ is actually a Deaf performer, showing, along side two sign language interpreters, what a Wiz Khalifa interpretation looks like…

Here is her recounting of her whirlwind experience being flown out to L.A. If you are eager to see her actual performance, I encourage you to google it. ;-)

Tienes un toque singular
Un toque que me cala hondo
Que me debilita
Manda vibraciones a través de las venas
Entra el ventrículo mas cerca al corazón
Pulsa y late
Hasta que me rinda y me caiga
Arrodillada delante de ti
Rogándote que me toques otra vez

You had me at “lift”. The answer is: YES!

I don’t want to bury him in adjectives
I don’t want to water down his lushness with trite clichés
I want to explain him
But how do you summarize a man
Whose meaning is: everything

I spent two weeks in Venezuela with the Deaf Community in two different cities just a few months ago. It is one of the best experiences I have been privileged to have had and have been blessed to experience. I’ve made lasting friends and connections that have continued to enrich me, my perspective, and my life. Which have made me a better Interpreter. I didn’t even know I was being invested in, and here I stand, richer, taller.

With the onslaught and rupture of the recent violence wave that has been attacking that beautiful country our friends have been victims.  The community has lost a friend, a family member, an ally, and a collaborator. 

Lots of love to my friends who are mourning the loss and tragedy of Adriana Urquiola.
