#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.

#yes

If you say yes to something,
you are saying no to something else.

We cannot do all of the things in life all of the time,
There is choice,
there is energy,
everything else is time and space.

How will you change yourself,
how will you change the world,
what choices will you make today,
how will you expend your energy?
how will you work?
what will you work on?

when you say yest to television, you are saying no to (doing the dishes, gym, playing with kids, showering, laundry, etc)
I think television is such a waste of time... It is not relaxing, resting, or soothing--it is escapism--it is an active activity of the mind to "numb, escape, resist". True rest is constructive rejuvenating repair.  
Life is constant struggle of labor and work.
But we choose our work, and we choose our results.

But what of that which we cannot change?
We become stronger, we deal, we work with it, we adapt, we cope, and we build upon, out of the chaos we create beauty, brilliance, strength, power, joy.

Say yes to joy, say yes to rest, say yest to work.

Say no to escapism, fear, shame.

go in peace

Goodbye Angel. 

It is now time that I leave you to your life, and I continue with my own. 
No more contact between us. 
The tie severed, deleted..... 

I will always love you. I told you so, and it is true. 

And, with that love, and with my own love to myself, I cut the connection, I break apart from the gravity. 

I will miss you, but I know you are safe, and I am safer. 

You said you will be there for me when I need you... and yet, you were not there for me, you were not there for me when I needed you as a friend. Too many times, you abused my trust, and neglected my devotion to our friendship: a friendship made weak by your inability to put energy and effort into it--your inability to love in a good way.

You said you planned a dinner for me. That you want to have one for me. But knowing you, that will never happen. You have never planned to be with me. Never. It was always through my effort that any of our meetings ever occurred. You never took the risk, went out on a limb, to reach me. And now I am gone. Will you find me? I am not hard to find.

I will always love you. 

But, I am he who walks away to descend. 

As the Lion I am, the Leo, so well called out by your breeze, I leave, I wonder the lands... enchanting, enchanted fabulous fierce lion of light, glitter, and graceful clairvoyance.

If you find me, what for? 
If you find me, why?
If you find me, what then?
If you find me, of course I still love you...
If you find me, will then you start to be a good friend, and prioritize our friendship in your life?
If you don't find me, I will still love you, and I will still be that artist in your life past, and you the air of a memory under a moon. 

You once said I should never talk to you again. You said it was because you were a bitch, a bad person. Well, I don't believe in bad people, I believe in bad choices. You choose to enact the behavior of a bitch, you choose to perform and create yourself into a bad person. I know you are not this, but I cannot wait for you to figure out how to be lovely again... I cannot... 

Goodbye. 

I hope you go, live in peace....

with love,
