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…
This was an inspiring weekend for every type of writer who needs a little push. I had fun sharing my poetry with a talented group of Los Angeles poets at the annual LitFest Pasadena. 

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!
