March Madness

It's my birthday month and I spent the day sunbathing and saying my affirmations. I am thankful for another year of life. No matter where my travels take me I always try to surround myself with a little piece of heaven. I wake up every morning to beautiful mountain views. There are over 200 different species of birds around my area. I enjoy natures orchestra. It keeps me grounded. My spirit is lifted. I went hiking with my closest friends and we were startled by a pack of coyotes who simply acknowledged us and kept going. It gave me a rush and made me appreciate my place in nature as well as all the other creatures.

Over the course of three months I have been seeing 10:10, 11:11, 4:44, 3:33 several times a day. Delightfully intriguing!  I've been finding inspiration everywhere.  It feels exciting. It's becoming easier for my thoughts to flow on paper. This is the year I will finish my manuscript.  My work involves using art as a healing medium through short stories, my personal musings and poetry.  I will also explore the meaning of ancient knowledge and 21st century action for people of color. At times I am misunderstood because people do not see the connection.  You may feel your way is the right path but you must not think that your path is the only way.

I want to thank everyone who sent in submissions to Abstract By Nature Zine Anthology 2013.  I am looking for even more poetry and photography. This is going to be good!
Please contact me if you are an artist, activist or geek interested in sharing your work. The zine will be a mash up of taboo topics, short stories, empowerment, reviews, activism, poetry, promotions, photography, DIY themes. I consider my zine a safe space that promotes dialogue and self expression.

It's time for spring cleaning. Let go of the baggage. No more March madness !! Start fresh, clear the clutter,  eat better

Stay blessed,

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…

The Shift

#urbansoulfarmer grew out of a need to learn my culture and tradition through the migration of medicinal plants and spices. Urban Soul Farmer is also a platform that synthesizes wellness, art and nature. The aim is to sow seeds of wisdom about our past, present and future. Study, research, certifications, observation, workshops, community, interviews, and travel are all part of my process to create an experimental multimedia narrative about my ancestors.

I am continuing as Blaqnomadtales to archive stories of healers, counselors, and underground artists of the African Diaspora. Our stories need to be told by us and preserved by us. The time is now. Stay tuned 2017

I would like to thank Rock Rose a Gallery for donating a garden plot to urban soul farmer. I will be hosting classes every two weeks for demonstrations, hands on projects and community building. As part of  an "art and nature" series, I have been chosen to organize and develop urban gardening workshops including a…

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 …
