Greetings everyone.
It is two months into the New Year and I have proudly managed to keep my resolution.  I’ve lunged into unfamiliar territory by moving out of my comfort zone and into an entire new experience. In this short time frame, while still processing my thoughts, I am learning so much about myself. I now identify when artists or authors have similar account of going to nature to find creativity. Change brings new vision. My writer’s block is gone. And although so many have attempted to figure me out, I have no time to judge them. I am on my own journey of understanding. We may not fully understand love and kindness until we build tolerance and compassion within ourselves. I am here for closure, mentally and spiritually. I am traveling through space and time to learn about my family history and to be of service to others. We must work on redefining ourselves every chance we get in order to expand our consciousness. Creating is my vessel and I will let it use me. What has kept me upbeat and in good spirits is the purity and innocence of children, absorbing nature and observing animals. Sometimes I trip out on all the new sounds around me. It makes me want to record nature and make music. All it takes is to sit quietly and listen. At times we take the little things for granted.
I would like to thank all of you who continue to order from my boutique. I’ve been selling bohemian hangers and doing lots of zine trades. I am also pleased to finally say that, Abstract by Nature issue #2 is going to be available this spring! It will be a special edition and I will share vivid pictures from my Occupy L.A. involvement. In addition, I am hyped that my international zine library is growing rapidly. I will be giving recommendations of good reads and bands in the next issue as well.  As I continue to travel through the South and Midwest, I am itching to organize an event. I have been connecting with new friends and experiencing different communities; I am becoming well informed there is a need for art, culture and health awareness in several different areas. With this said, I am nurturing a place of my own in the South. I have been remodeling a safe space and rebirthing a community garden. Feel free to donate to my project on paypal and keep track of updates on my twitter and tumblr.
“ The only way to reach truth is to learn how to be immediate in your vision…drop the mind. The mind only controls dreams and if you are too excited you are intoxicated, not in your senses. Then whatsoever you see is just your projection. And there are as many worlds as there are minds, because every mind lives in his own world.” -Osho

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…

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!

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 …
