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 etsy.com 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
