My Move Tot Oakland

I am Moving to Oakland!!!

Moving my Art Practice out there! And working as a Professional Dance Teaching Artist! 

 And, if you can support my move in a little way, I would really be grateful to you!

Even 20 bucks will help! That is gas and food as I make this transition. T

Thank you so much!

XOXO!

#GlitterSirens

There are the hipsters
high on marijuana and poppers
drunk on tequila, vodka, rum, triple sec, and gin
a walking adios mudafukka 
bye felicia 
i think i will call you beautiful points of lust
with songs of ke$ha
and post-modernist-structuralist theory gracing lips and hips
sirens
covered in the joteria glitter of the tainted son
glitter sirens
lick the sun: taste the rainbow
we can be near for warmth, burned in attempting control or concerning understand
glitter sirens
i love you

I refuse

I refuse to neglect my creativity. 
I refuse to miss out on my art any longer. 
I refuse to abuse my intellectualism with other people's needs, wants, and demands. 
I refuse to be cruel to my body and its expression any longer.

#pretty

Beautiful brown boys with beautiful bodies, oh how I wish to hang out with you, kiss you on the cheek, and call you my boo. But do you have a beautiful mind? Do you have a beautiful heart? Past chronographs chart stories of inequalities, shade, and rude remarks or engagements. I hope that is not future time, future space is held too precious.  As you walk on, I look and imagine what has been, and what could have been, which point only to my present.

a life of creativity

I do not live a life of fame and fashion. 
I live a life of creativity. 

It is a life not about show, sexy, or glamour. 
It is a life about sexiness, lust, loss, need, celebration and performance. 

I wonder what is next to create, what is next to navigate, and what is next to fight, in order to get what I want... 
I want so much, for your an me, our equality..... 
And, I know, dance will bring it in providence.

help i'm tired

When we are tired, remember your glitter is endless.
You can always call your deep sparkle.
You can do more than you think, because you are more than you're aware of...
Finding yourself is difficult and a burden, because your true self is so much more grand than you could possibly conceive right now.
But whatever the task, no matter how much focus or energy you have, can be done, can be completed--because you are great! You have the power to transform.
Moreover, There is glitter in this world. And, it is there to help you when you are lost, when you need the help. Sparkle and glitter with it all...


-- a message from the glitter shaman

Gathering Friends

How to we begin to engage with those who are self-destructive?

Trust in yourself. Show them compassion. Don't listen to their poison, take it personally, or let it into your soul or psyche. See them as lost, and gently guide them to their own wealth of self-creativity. 

Sometimes, you will get nothing back but the knowledge & feeling of your good deed. 
But, wealth does not come from destruction. 
Wealth comes from work and creation. 
With more creative people, we build wealth in the world, from which we all benefit.
