My Next Big Project


I'm so excited about this year because so many good things seem to be happening to me. I've made the right decisions (on my own) and ended up with the best thing that could have happened to me, Indigo Lounge. It all started with an idea, Carolyn and I planted a seed and it has flourished tremendously. I am so thankful for all of the on going support we continue to receive. I've really been able to reflect on who I feel my true friends are and what it means to be a true friend. I really do believe that people enter your life for different reasons and I am grateful that I am connecting with true souls who understand me as much as I understand them. I will never forget my experiences working in the "hollywood" entertainment world and I can not deny learning a lot from being part of that environment. However, I can honestly say, I am content with being an independent artist. My family and friends wonder why I didn't strive to become this big hollywood writer because I was more than half way there. My family and friends often are puzzled that I didn't just stay a "shrink" for the rest of my life. Personally, I have always wanted to use my talents and education in an alternative way. It's not just about winning an Oscar or Grammy. I don't want to be that person absorbing people's dysfunctional energy just to get "paid." it's about challenging minds, exploring ideas, and building awareness. I am a humanitarian. I am a psychotherapist. I am an Artist. Some people get me, some people try to get me and some people will never get it and I am okay with that. I have been challenged by my own fears, which keeps me pushing forward. Speaking of music, I have a song on a soundtrack of a film called "Queerer Than Thou." It's been in 12 film festivals internationally and I am so blessed to be part of this comical, thought provoking film. And although my family doesn't always support me the way I want them to, I still feel a sense of contentment. I have a short film coming out called " Abstract By Nature" and I've been working on the soundtrack. I've dabbled in music, but I have never seriously completed a full-length CD. I am happy, excited and thrilled to share it with everyone who dares to listen. I call it my spicy-happy-treat. Stay tuned! I leave you with my rockstar pic because I feel a bit "rockstar" today. lol.

I'm addicted to coping strategies!!

Has anyone ever told you that they used to be "in the world" but all of a sudden out of some circumstance or situation have decided they are too God-like to participate? Well, reality is that we must all live in this world. Call it spirit, God, Jesus, Buddha, consciousness, the universe or nothing at all - it was all created for you, in you. Life and the world we live in is beautiful. Look at all the wonders of nature. The difference is knowing what you are here to do. We can feed our fears with fear or we can conquer our fears by turning inside ourselves for real answers. People confuse superficial actions with the real thing constantly, and so they will forever remain zombies. I believe in God, I believe in science, I believe in evolution. I am open to everything and attached to nothing. This is the mystery of life and I humble myself to the all and everything.

Your DNA and your life journey was specifically chiseled out for you. Stop looking at the next persons imperfec…

Greetings,
I am floating, flying, sailing into darkness, uncertainty and faith. It's been an interesting year so far. I feel myself evolving while unraveling. With the death of my grandmother and my beloved friend just a few months apart, I feel the ancestors tugging at me like never before.
My production company is providing a service in order to fund our film production about the African Diaspora called DiSpell. I would like to thank all of you who have donated at our fundraisers. We continue to stay passionate about traveling along the Caribbean coast and archiving stories. The goal is to fly to Afro Caribbean Costa Rica and travel by land back to the United States maintaining and documenting stories of our ancestors. We are the historians that must keep our own stories alive. It is important to instill strength, courage and holistic health practices in our POC communities. I am a holistic health advocate and I want to remind you of who you are. As storytellers and multimedia …

Memorial Weekend at Val Verde, Ca

One of the best things happened to me! I was able to fullfill a bucket list dream which was to put on a community Music and Cultural Festival. Although there is room for improvement I can honestly say it was the best decision I have made this year. It takes support of family and friends to keep me motivated and pushing towards my goals and vision.
I am grateful. There will be more festivals curated by me in the on going years. The world is as good as you make it. Stay focused, stay positive and set your intention.

Please do yourself a favor and research the historic relevance of "Black Palm Springs" in the 1920's during Jim Crow.

This annual festival is not just about having a good time it's about historical awareness in underserved communities.

Come out next year for free camping, free swimming, yoga, live music and community!
