Distraction    - an experimental poem with animated illustrations 

  Distraction ’s poetic pictoral representation of khoLi’s brain on distraction demonstrates “distraction as an immutable component in our lives that we must learn to make peace with and filter.” KhoLi. continues, “Without focus, I can easily be caught up or completely overwhelmed by content … which … if I’m honest, is what I’m suggesting America wants from its citizens, to be overwhelmed (to the point of paralysis) by the media we willingly follow on a daily basis.”

“Is definitely a balancing act, and it is not at all easy. I do the best I can, which involves a lot of saying no to things, actually, and a lot of really organized scheduling and a lot of help, to be honest. That was one of our major incentives to moving here.   
  We were living in LA and I was writing and recording this album literally between the hours of 9am and 3pm every day because that was the time that Julez was in school. We were completely isolated, we didn’t have any family or long-term friends there, and we didn’t have that support system built in there that we have in New York.”  
 
  You probably already know h  ow much we love everything Solange has been doing with fashion lately  …  and how much we love   her coming into her own sound   … but most of all we love her love for family … her love for living a real life.
