I've Always Had The Best, Because Life Puts The Best In Front Of Me

I’ve Always Had The Best, Because Life Puts The Best In Front Of Me

Even the guy in the car driving 20 in a 50. Even the lady who’s looking at me like I just ate her baby. Even the dude talking way too loudly on his cellphone about how, “Actually $100,000 won’t cut it.” In way too small of a public space. Life knows right then I gotta be driving slow, I gotta be hearing these words, I have to receive this look – don’t worry about why? It’s happening. Be thankful because life says drive slow homie, drive slow- Drive slow, so when my tire explodes on the highway I am exactly where I need to be in order to be safe. Drive slow and listen and be …

The Pause Is The Moment Where All Great Things Happen

The Pause Is The Moment Where All Great Things Happen

The pause is the moment where all great things happen. It’s the space in between moments, in between sounds. A and B are boring compared to all that happened on the way there. A and B are already finished by the time we have time to acknowledge them. It’s the space that makes music pop, the silence, or else it’s just noise. Noise and music are profoundly different. Embrace the space. Love the silence. Praise the sounds between sounds. Listen to the breath and experience the magic.

My Worst Nightmare:

My Worst Nightmare:

A punishment where all of my energy is exerted towards a goal that accomplishes nothing. A life where every day is simply a bunch of nations not for now, but for “what if’s” and “security blankets” and “for laters”. A life of actions towards accomplish nothing. The gods actually believed that there was no punishment more dreadful than that of futile and hopeless labor – look at sisyphus and tantalus – punished to the same action over and over and over again. What does that say about me? If you find joy and value in what I do and share, please consider supporting with a recurring or one time donation …

Forgetting Is Not Healing

Forgetting Is Not Healing

“If things would have gone the way I would have wanted them to have gone I wouldn’t be the person I am today.” People are fantastic at forgetting. Forgetting is not healing. Forgetting is not being okay. Forgetting is forgetting. Those things we have chosen or not chosen to forget will come rearing their not truly forgotten heads. When they do, it’ll be vicious, it’ll suck. The art of story is the gift of choosing to remember. Choosing to actively remember. Choosing to take ownership. Choosing to acknowledge. Choosing not to forget, but rather to remember the things that made us who we are. To thank what came and went. …

Universal Rules Of Art

Universal Rules Of Art

Universal rules of art – Be Creative… Like seriously, create something that is an explosion of the outside meeting the insides, ala Big Bang. – Don’t judge it… until you have to. – Allow yourself to be moved, don’t put yourself into a place of movement. – Be brought to tears, do not bring tears. – Don’t tell me what you can show me. – Creating is living doubly, in the world and not in the world. This is called losing one self to find oneself. – Expression begins where thought ends. – Resist the temptation to explain. – Resist The Temptation To Understand. – The artist commits himself and …

I am learning everyday to allow the space between where I am and where I want to be, to inspire me and not terrify me.”

I Am Learning To Allow The Space Between Where I Am & Where I Want To Be, To Inspire Me & Not Terrify Me.

  “Wisdom means to choose now what will make sense later. I am learning everyday to allow the space between where I am and where I want to be, to inspire me and not terrify me.” – Tracee Ellis Ross It’s about removing the separation between wants and haves, between work and life, between play and rest.

I Get Said "No" To A Lot.

I Get Said “No” To A Lot.

I get said no to a lot. It’s the industry I’m in, I put myself out there – sometimes people vibe with it and sometimes they don’t. “It’s exactly how it’s supposed to go.” … One of these days I won’t have to keep saying it – I’ll know it – in my marrow: it’s exactly how it’s supposed to go, something bigger and better is on the horizon. But until I know it, I say it, I remind myself, and I share with y’all – Who are just as brave and courageous and putting yourself out on the line. So thank you for inspiring me. Whether you turn to …
