Be Careful When You Call For Divine Intervention, It Will Wreak Havoc When It Comes.

Be careful when you call for divine intervention. It will wreak havoc when it comes. We have devised ways of containing it, but it always comes. I think of music, the spirits that good music can set free in you (without your asking), can be chaotic, overwhelming; just like life, when you’re truly touched on the dancefloor, it’s not just pleasure, but shock, tears, possibly unwanted revelations. I don’t know if you hear it, but lately there is this ever present beep – it’s like a heart monitor – do you hear it? … beep …. beep … beep. We are being watched and monitored and we are seconds, moments …

We Must All Watch This Film On Standing Rock

This Gorgeous Short Film Takes Us to the Heart of the Dakota Access Pipeline Standoff   Given what we’re seeing in the election’s aftermath, photographer–filmmakerLucian Read clearly picked a prescient title for his recent mini-doc series on inequality in the United States: America Divided, which aired on EPIX in October and November, took us to corners of a nation still hurting from the Great Recession—from an addiction-ravaged Rust Belt town reeling from factory closures to New York City, where the housing crisis proved devastating to many Latinos and African Americans. Premiering here, Read’s latest short film, Mni Wiconi: The Standing at Standing Rock, turns a camera on the plight of …

Heartbreak Reveals Who We Are
Heartbreak Reveals Who You Are. That Said, Fight To Love MORE

Heartbreak Reveals Who You Are. That Said, Fight To Love MORE

HEARTBREAK is unpreventable; the natural outcome of caring for people and things over which we have no control… Heartbreak begins the moment we are asked to let go but cannot, in other words, heartbreak is the very essence of being human, of being on the journey from here to there, and of coming to care deeply for what we find along the way. There is almost no path a human being can follow that does not lead to heartbreak. Realizing heartbreak is inescapable, we can see heartbreak not as the end of the road, but the road. Heartbreak reveals who we are. Heartbreak asks us not to look for another …

This Is Who You Are

This Is Who You Are

This is who are you. I wish this was some sort of metaphor for anything other than what is happening – you are seeing yourself. Chances are you never saw yourself before. What i’m trying to say is, this is not a distorted image like you’re used to. You are not looking for yourself / You are looking at yourself. I repeat, this is who you are. Not who think you are. Not the face you thought you knew. This is exactly what other people see when they look at you. This isn’t a reflection, it’s the image of you. Normally a mirror is reassurance. That you are still here. …

Good Art Makes You Pregnant

An Excerpt From The Giving Show: When I was in HS – actually my fourth day of HS the world trade centers went down. Now, regardless of conspiracies of how and why that happened – the city, nyc, my home, came together like I’ve never experienced it- anyone who was there, felt it. It was like another layer on top of an already delicious cake, this beautiful frosting that said we are not permanent and anything can happen and what we have is each other. But that cake was eaten and people went back to doing what they do, back to life as it was. Same during the crazy black …

Motley Crue Time For Change

Time For Change

  I heard some kids telling me How they’ve lost all the faith in the way. They’ve been talking world peace And they’re wars in the streets The lines on their faces so deep A revolution or reach out and touch the day We’re overdue child Change Now it’s time for change Nothing stays the same Now it’s time for change I feel the the future in the hands Of our youth can be safe No more lies Old, tired fools tell our future With tarot cards and lies of crime We’re overdue child I’ll change… Not tomorrow, but today. Motley Mutherfuckin Crue   If you find joy and value …

Hope Means Rising Above Low Level Shit

Hope Means Rising Above Low Level Shit

Hope and acceptance go hand in hand. Radical hope radical acceptance. To fight the thing is to fight change and what you wanted most was change. Be careful when you call for divine intervention. It will wreak havoc when it comes. I guess what I battle with most is how easily we just get over shit. Which is often good and often not. We don’t get over, we forget, and forget is not dealing with somethign, forget is not healing. Right? Most of the time we just get over it. It’s time really, time is the little blue pill that just makes shit go away. Time is flawless like that. …

The Only Real Possible Love Is Sincere And On Task. Honest And True.

The Only Real Possible Love Is Sincere And On Task

The only real possible love is sincere and on task. Honest and true. On task: Meet a person Feel what’s honest. Call it out. Take it there. Exhaust it (if possible) … and when complete – appreciate it. Thank it. move on. To do more than possible, to do more than what you can is to stay off task. No matter what, stay on task. The suffering begins when we leave what is for what we want it to be.    If you find joy and value in what I do and share, please consider supporting with a recurring or one time donation of your choosing, between a cup of …

Throw Your Shit Out

  All our suffering can be seen in the fact that there are 35 story high storage units which take up 4 city blocks. This is not an exaggeration. These buildings that store all the things we don’t want, the things we don’t want around. But we also don’t want to get rid of them; and if we asked what was in them, 80% of people would have no idea. We pay someone to hold these things we must continue to hang onto and not use. What else are we hanging onto and don’t want to let go of? And with what currency are we paying for it? Why are …
