we are the ones that we have been waiting for

Choose love. However challenged we are. No matter how challenging. Stand united in this.

Calling on all change warriors and all of humanity!

What better motivation than world leaders like Trump and Duterte who show us beyond the shred of a doubt what exactly we do not want for our selves and for our world?

Even the most lethargic sedentary sloth feels their heart kindled and ignited today as a result of the unbelievable indignities we are being subjected to.

This is not the time to be passive and invisible. Stand up, awake and arise, be counted and make your life count.

So much anger needs much love. So much pain needs much healing.

Healing not to fix what is broken but heal to preserve our higher nature and protect our world.

We each need to look within ourselves to find true inner peace in order for there to be any hope of peace on earth.

These times bring strong emotions. Use them to motivate and inspire. Not to aggravate and complicate.

Live in the light of wisdom and love. Shine and drive off the darkness of ignorance and lack.

who we remember & what we devote ourselves to

Neil Gaiman is an admired author and a prolific writer that has grown better through the years and aged gracefully in wisdom even in the constant glare of his incessant celebrity.

There's just so much to Neil that we admire!

all by his lonesome

"Back a few months ago, I was headlinin' a great big nightclub
And they put me up a couple days early, I came in a couple days early
And they put me up in what they call the "Star Suite"
Now here I am, headlinin' in one of the biggest nightclubs
In the country and I wake up at eight o'clock in the morning
In this "Star Suite" all by myself"


"Yeah, that's what I said, "Awwwww."

"But I did what I've always done, man, to cheer myself up
I picked up my guitar, I sat down and I wrote me a little song
Now this is how it feels to be alone at the top of the hill
Tryin' to figure out why."

embracing life

I have always been demanding of myself and others.

Never high maintenance but definitely difficult at times.

I do not concede defeat. Instead I question and challenge.

I like options. I love to choose. I advocate for change.

move, moving, movement

A home of my own is important to my Cancer beingness.

This recent hunt for a new apartment took longer than planned and some of the initial options presented were just too dismal.

Besides I loved my little barrio and was adamant about remaining here. Daunting as it seemed I would not give up.

Persist. Insist. Resist.

friends & relations

People come into your life
for a reason, a season or a lifetime.
When you figure out which one it is,
you will know what to do for each person.
~ Anonymous

Phases of our lives.

Of all our relations friendship is the most valued and valuable.

So fragile and ephemeral and yet the foundation upon which our lives rest and are weighed.

into the fire

"I think the role of the artist is always twofold: One is reacting to your time and the other is chronicling your time." ~ Neil Gaiman

We definitely are living in interesting times. More so than ever this shows up in our lives whether we are aware of it or not. How we show up in our lives now is truly revealing.

Creating a home and a private pocket of my own is a priority for this Cancer Monkey.

Yet recent nesting challenges have been particularly prickly. An emotional roller coaster that has thrown me into dizzying heights and depressing lows as I hunt for another apartment.

My neighborhood for the past six years has grown popular and overpopulated. Making it harder to find a quiet corner in which to roost.

Loving the area too much to budge or seek other options just yet, I feel my breath catch and my muscles knot up as I go through the day's listing with my realtor.

Enough already and let me unpack my stuff from storage and get on with my life!

Due to pressing demands prices have escalated and spaces have shrunk. I'm refuse to give up or give in. Even if it's become harder to lean into these shifting gusts of change.

My current situation feels a lot like a microcosm of the macro upheavals that our nation is going through at the moment.

On the one hand, not having a home whose hatches I can batten down. On the other divide, feeling exposed and vulnerable in this Trump induced chaos.

This change warrior is growing fierce and strong, honed in these extremes.
