- Does the status quo work for you? How do you inadvertently uphold it? What do you gain from upholding it? Let's stop this.Happy Mother's Day to the ever patient, loving, supportive, strong, compassionate, and radiant @themerslater . We are so lucky to have you as the rock and alpha of our little family.Today, my 5 month old son picked up a drumstick, smacked the snare, and laughed as hard as he ever has. I smiled so wide it hurt. I think I'm finally learning to appreciate this parenting thing...#jakedithjrThis was a special night. Over 60 people from 3 decades of our life, singing and dancing, and setting intentions to live and fight compassionately. Without COVID-19, this wouldn't have happened. Not a worthy trade-off, but learning to make meaning together is what Passover is all about. (📷: @themerslater)First we 👰🏻🤵🏻💒🍻. Then we 👒🕶️🍹🐚🇵🇦⛵🌊🏖️. Thanks for having us, Panamá. And congratulations @cnearz & @colindickerson!!!!It has been an honor to have had the opportunity to serve what is one of the most marginalized, underserved, invisible populations in the world these past 3 1/2 years. I put my heart and all the best parts of myself (and probably my not-so-best ones, too) into this work with veterans experiencing homelessness, and I'm both proud and humbled to say that I believe I contributed more to the solution than to the problem.This is @zoeblueberrymuffin. She is my dæmon and she just turned 4 years old. Boop.THAT WAS SO EXHILARATING! 2020 is gonna be great! @libertypuzzles2019 in 9 images, 9 places, 9 very different stories...Denver, Brooklyn, all over Asia, San Diego, Minneapolis, Lake Granby, Tokyo, Mesa Verde, Leadville : Birth, Grief, Adventure, Luxury, Achievement, Love, Food, Looking to the Past, Looking Ahead.Dear World. This is Harrison Kai Slater-Hyman. He was born 11/21 at 9:41pm. This will likely be the only time you'll see him on social media until he can consent to posting his image, so drink it in. Some things you should know: His existence is the most surreal, spectacular experience I've ever had. I am fully content. . . Also: @themerslater is an absolute superhero. I've known her for over 20 years, but I will never look at her the same way again. I am overflowing with love for her. . If you want to know or see more, text us. Or better yet, come visit! #jakedith10 years ago this week, @freelancewhalesagram and I embarked on a journey that would change me in ways I never could have imagined. We ended up traveling enough miles over 5 years to circle the globe 3 times. We played over 300 shows. I can't wait to tell my soon-to-be offspring about that wild ride, and all the lessons I learned about dreaming and discipline and diving in.Year 5. Happy place. Just as breathtaking every time... 🍂🍂🍂🍂🍂"You’ve been a part of me for so long. There’s no way to know who I’d be without you in my life for these past 15 years. Thank you for allowing me the freedom to follow many paths, and for trusting me. Your trust has helped me learn to trust myself. Thank you for having faith in me, and for giving me something to have faith in, in return. Thank you for challenging me. Thank you for encouraging my wild imagination. Thank you for accepting and trying to understand me and for helping me learn about who I am. Thank you for teaching me about confidence. And the importance of sleep. And the splendor of food. And about loving unconditionally, without insecurity. I love you because I can be whatever self I feel like being with you. I love you because you laugh at my jokes, even when I don’t. I love you because, though we both tend to judge others, you tend not to judge me. I love you for your dedication and your courage. I love you because you’re strong. Many years ago I called you a strength factory. Your strength has kept us together, and will hold us up for a lifetime. I promise to be strong for you, too, when you need it, and to be gentle when you need that, instead. I promise to let you take the wheel sometimes. I promise to always give you unsolicited foot and back rubs. I promise, here and now – before our family and friends and all of creation – not to throw my dirty laundry on the floor, and to carry cash once in a while. I promise to nurture your passions and dreams, as you’ve nourished mine. I promise to go on adventures together. To have a family together. To grow old and content together. Most importantly, I promise to change, and to give you the freedom to change, and to accept and adapt to all of our changes. I love you in this and all realms." -9/21/2013 #jakedithHappy birthday to my captain, my best friend, and the mother of my child, @themerslater . The last year was a perfectly curated adventure, and the next will be the exact opposite. And I wouldn't have it any other way. #jakedithI wrote this 3 years ago, but it's particularly relevant today... "...It’s because of Katie’s wise heart that I am able to even attempt to make meaning out of the surreal, nonsensical, and undeniable fact that she is gone. I’ll never see Katie again. I’ll never get to tell her what I wish I had the day before she died…which is that I’ll miss her so terribly, every day. And the empty space in my life that has been growing for three years will never be filled, and I don’t want it to be. If that emptiness means she’s still with me, then so be it. I welcome it, and any other pain that reminds me of our short and spectacular time together. Because, as Katie once wrote to me…”Yes, the world is full of pain, uncertainty, and injustice. But in this vulnerable human life, every loss is an opportunity to either shut out the world or to stand up with dignity and let the heart respond. Here’s to letting our hearts respond.”Looking ahead, all I can see is the shadow of the mountain behind me. I must face the mountain in order to see it clearly. Another solo weekend in the books. Feeling recharged and ready.#jakedithfarm is finally in full bloom! 🌽🐝Been a long time since I had so much sand in my butt crack..."The sky overhead, the earth below, the mountains around. I stand in the middle place -- at home." - Dr. Rina Swentzell, Santa Clara PuebloThere's no one with whom I'd rather spend 10 weeks, years, Valentine's Days, decades. Well, technically this is our 11th or 12th Valentine's Day I think. Either way... here's to the beautiful, generous, thoughtful, loving, ever-hungry, ever-sleepy, ever-goofy @themerslater! . . . . #nofilter #shewokeuplikethat #jasiadith #japan #thailand #laos #vietnam #cambodia #angkorwat #tokyo #chiangmai #maehongson #luangprabang #hanoi #siemreap #railay
