The Groove

I’d lost my groove. Or rather, not lost it, but gave it up. I had it, the groove, in my grasp, before I exchanged it for an ill-conceived rut. It wasn’t something I could catch in a jar on a cold night, when its light gives away its position, it’s an identity, a palpable entity,…

In the Projected Path

As anyone in Miami-Dade County on Friday September 8th, 2017 can attest, we were all utterly terrified, and remarkably humbled, at the wrath of an angry God. But not the God of ancient man who rains hell fire and brimstone over an unfaithful humanity; an angry God of our own creation. One whose bloodlust is…

Those who can, teach

By: Zalykha María Mokim Writer Do you remember that episode of “Girls” where Lena Dunham becomes a teacher? Dunham walks into a pretty well-organized school building, decides she wants to become a teacher, gets a roster of less than twenty students, does some sort of lesson in front of a bunch of teenagers that only…

La Hermandad

The last six years of my life have been an awakening, and the synchronicity in these years have propelled me forward to the here and now. An empowering here where my truth is my power, and where I yearn to share all that I’ve learned and continue to learn from connecting with others. In this…

You can’t go home again

Welcome back MyXXFam! You may have noticed we ditched palm trees for saguaros over the last few weeks, and may even be wondering why. While we offered a bit of an explanation, today we’re retelling a story that occurred on this bitter-sweet trip to bring closure to our series of three posts from the deserts of Arizona. Bienvenidos de nuevo MyXXFam! Es…

Zophia Z.

Welcome back fam! Today on the blog we bring you along on an excursion that occurred bright and early one Tucson morning, despite what the blazing noon-worthy sun would have you believe. The occasion? A very special feature post that’s been nearly a year in the making. So slap on the sunscreen as we meander…

Fat, Fly, and Outside

Greetings and salutations fellow fly Earthlings! As the warmest (and busiest travel) season of the year bears down upon North America, you may find yourself with a bounty of opportunities to lace up your sneakers or shimmy into your bathing suit. Throughout the course of my life, whether I met these possibilities with excitement or…

The (in)Justice System

Part I Saturday May 20th, 4:22am Awake, and alert. This ungodly hour would’ve been unreasonable for a Saturday workday, but not today. After a Friday straddling Broward and Dade County, between running errands, grocery-shopping, editing at the library, and a race against time to get a blog post up while the boys met their fit-bit…

The MyXXFLY Guide to Finding Your Personal Style

We’ve been pretty busy as of late in the MyXXFLY universe. From collaborations to full-on interviews, and all of the behind-the-scenes stuff simmering on the back burner that we can’t yet reveal. Needless to say it’s all been super meta, as I’ve been asked a lot about the why’s and what’s of this whole operation. So today on MyXXFLY we’re tapping into the heartbeat of this little…
