To the HRC: You made me feel like a Queen last night!  Thank you for my award and for all you do.
@joebiden: What a thrill to hear you speak. Thank you for reminding us who we are and for giving us hope.
@awkwafina: I love you. You lit up the room (you light up every room you are in). Thank you for coming to DC for me.
@adaripp: (you know what I’m thinking because you know why)
I found myself outside a fire station ceremony first thing this morning and have been unsuccessfully trying to put my feelings into words since. I can think of no better way to describe what I am feeling than Robert Schwarzman has done here, and so it is my bittersweet pleasure to share his thoughts with those of you who may not have already read them.

I was living in NYC and attending the New School in September 2001. I stayed at a hotel in Soho the night of September 10th, and woke up to the news that a plane had hit one of the World Trade Center towers. The news didn’t know what to make of it and began to speculate. Then news of the second plane was announced and it was more clear what had taken place. I walked outside the hotel, turned towards downtown, and could see the two smoking towers in the distance. I accompanied the hotel staff to pickup some extra flashlights and batteries at the local market. When I returned to the hotel, the buildings were no longer standing. 
The feeling around NYC that resonated and sustained for months following this event was one of pure and genuine connection. Everything and everyone felt so in tune and in sync, like you were standing with strangers who felt no different than your family. 
I’m currently in NYC and walking these streets 17 years later is bringing this all back. It’s surreal to think that this monumental event actually happened and how much time has passed. Thinking back to that feeling of unity, I can’t help but think about this feeling of separation and division that plagues our country right now. I believe there’s more love than hate in us, more connection than division, more friends than enemies. I want to believe it shouldn’t have to take events like this to get to this place of connection, that it’s always present when we want to embrace it. It’s hard to keep things in perspective once the dust settles, but memories and history continue to remind us of the beauty we’re capable of.

Today we remember as a city, as country, and as a planet.
Many thanks to @RalphLauren for a spectacular and dreamy NY night.  Congrats on 50 years!

From Colin to the Capital to a college stage in Illinois, this is a small thank you to all those who fight with, and for, their light. 
Let us honor them by living in our own.
Have a blessed weekend everyone.
Peace xx
“We weaken our greatness when we confuse our patriotism with tribal rivalries that have sown resentment and hatred and violence in all the corners of the globe.  We weaken it when we hide behind walls, rather than tear them down, when we doubt the power of our ideals, rather than trust them to be the great force for change they have always been.”
With respect and gratitude to Senator John McCain, a true Maverick. Rest In Peace.
Long Live the Queen

There’s a common misconception that likens pregnancy to some kind of disability— the idea that women who are pregnant shouldn’t be active and can’t go about their normal lives... While no two pregnancies are the same, I just want to say that for many to most women this isn’t the case at all. I just wrapped a feature #againstallenemies at 8+ months pregnant. Now I’m on to a commercial and I plan to keep shooting for as long as anyone will hire me knowing in a few weeks I may have to replace myself if I go into labor on set... the point is I am NOT a superhero. I am just going about my life doing the thing that I love for as long as I can because the more I work before baby the longer I can take off after. Which should also be MY choice and no one else’s. Physically speaking I could have gone back to work within a week of having my son. At the time, I lost many jobs because people were nervous to hire me so soon after the birth but again I say this should be left up to us. Pregnancy and motherhood in general is not a disadvantage and the craft doesn’t suffer as a result. If anything the added experience and enhanced empathy has made me a better cinematographer and filmmaker. That’s all. Happy Friday! #femalefilmmakerfriday #shootfilm #cseries #panavisionofficial 📷 by @loganwhitephoto
I apologize for this messiness.
Earlier today I thought I was ready to post something else, but I am not. I am still heart sick over the murder of Nia Wilson and it feels wrong to post something else so soon. All my love and respect for everyone I mentioned in my deleted post stands- but I want to hold the space for Nia for longer. Again, I’m sorry.
The murder of Nia Wilson- may she rest in the power and peace she was denied here- is unspeakable AND MUST NOT be met with silence.  She is not a hash tag; she was a black woman and she was murdered in cold blood by a white man.

White people- including me, including you- must take into the marrow of our privileged bones the truth that ALL black people fear for their lives DAILY in America and have done so for GENERATIONS.  White people DO NOT have equivalence for this fear of violence. 
Given those givens, we must ask our (white)selves- how “decent” are we really?  Not in our intent, but in our actions?  In our lack of action? 
Peace and prayers and JUSTICE for Nia and the Wilson family xx

POSE on FX is my new favorite show.  Two episodes ago the always excellent Billy Porter left my jaw on the floor with his performance, one of the best I have ever seen on TV- happily I can’t get it out of my mind.  He stands out amongst an inspiring and revelatory cast.  Do yourself a favor- see what really makes America great and tune in.
A note: the LGBTTQQIAAP community is beautiful, loved, worthy and my family.  I only welcome words of love and support to them.  If you do not yet possess any, offer your silence.
Amazing final!! Bravo Les Bleus!!! #worldcup
