My Poetry Book Release!!

I should have been a flower
with peddles plucked from the outside in.
I'd be a scripted pattern of color-scented vulnerability.
Or, I'd be a flower plucked
 at the ripe time of significant beauty
stuck in a crystal vase-
sun kissed in a window ceil.
Perhaps even dried upside down in a dark closet
before pressed and crumbled
 in your fluorescent book of dreams.  (c)

Poem by Zoe Blaq
Rage. Love. Complexity

 Dear Friends and Family,

It's been a long journey but I am happy to share that my first poetry chapbook is moving forward and is soon to be released. The chapbook has 25 poems, 9 being haiku. This is the first time I have allowed my self to fully dwell in darkness and work through the process of healing. Healing starts with an awareness. It has also been a vessel to share and document what is going on in the world as an advocate and activist. This poetry book explores my raw emotion over the course of five years. Some poems are my personal experiences and some are other peoples experiences that touched me in such away I had no choice but to write about it.

My author website will be up soon and you will be able to order Rage. Love. Complexity.

A Book Release Bash may be in the works. I'll keep you posted! 

Thanks for your support,

Zoe Blaq

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 …
