"only in the state of absolute glitter are we ever unified with another. 3 times in your life will understand this fact. At birth, at death, and at creation-explosion-ejaculation of glitter itself. Otherwise we are individuals beside individuals. And that is the loving relationship between glitter. Never when we sleep do we share the same glittery wet dreams of silver linings-- we sleep alone, beside another, with the glitter between us, between moments in time. That is the loving relationship. Individuals, alone, beside each other, unified by glitter."

--a message from the Glitter Shaman 

"to share the dream, is mitote......"

12 Habits for Sustainable Fitness.

12 Habits for Sustainable Fitness.

1. Exercise even if you only have 10 or 15 minutes to do it.

2. Invest in a fitness tracker or journal to help determine your activity level outside of the gym.

3. Mix up your routine. Just do different activities: Walking, Hiking, gym circuit training, Zumba, swimming, football, salsa & social dance, bowling, weightlifting, yoga, cross-fit, core blaster, tai chi, running, dancing, biking, etc.  

4. Instead of skipping a workout, focus on how great you'll feel after you have moved your body a bit today.

5. Don't wait for an occasion to get in shape. Fitness is a lifestyle. Waiting until an anniversary, reunion, etc. will just create unrealistic expectations and make you feel unsuccessful when you've actually made great progress!

6. Eat NUTRITIOUS FOOD. Everything in moderation. Fresh Veggies, Fresh Fruits, Greens, Color, Water, Minerals, Vitamins! More plant protein, more lean protein and rich fibers. Less simple sugar, corn syrup, and processed foods.

7. Keep weeknight drinking to a minimum. Save it for the weekend when you have more leisure time and energy.

8. Work out at home if you can't get to a gym. A walk around the block or sweating to a workout DVD is great!

9. Exercise when you're sore. You don't have to go crazy and do heavy weight-lifting, light cardio can help soreness. Movement helps bring much needed nutrients to the sore areas with increased blood flow, aiding repair and healing.

10. Focus on how you want to feel rather than how you want to look.

11. Remember that the main goal isn't to run 10 miles a day, it's to do something physical. If you can just get to the gym, you'll probably end up staying longer than you originally thought. And isn’t that great!

12. Get sleep. Get LOTS of sleep. Proper rest is crucial to see the results you want. Sleep and physical activity charges your body with clean energy for the next day to come.

13. Celebrate your progress and don't beat yourself up when you still have more work to do! Fitness is about the journey, not achieving perfection.

the need for love

More and more I just see a need for love studies.....our system needs to integrate love into its programming, policies, and procedures. 

In other news, my degree in CSRE at Stanford finally makes sense to me. All that is happening with this issue an others is old news to me-- all terms and happenings I'm extremely aware of and well versed in.... But to move forward, we need Ethnic Studies Scholars, Advocates, Organizers, Visionaries, business people, and Artists to empower love to flourish!!! To stop the violence and provide opportunities for peace and equality!

It is no longer fair or okay for our society to allow destructive (masculinity, femininity, behavior, diets, language, systems) forces to exist and assume they will be repaired como nada.

The lack of a love culture in our world is no longer okay.


As I go to bed I leave you with this: 

The basic bitches will remain basic bitches. No death of a legendary will change that. No poem, wisdom, story or blessing will change them from basic bitchary to civilized eruditeness. Only they can change themselves. Only they can want it and put in that work. Hope that the process for transformation is instantaneous and swift is juvenile. Hope and faith and work that we put forth many paths for growth and loving collaboration for peace is the necessary effort. 

Goodnight lovelies.
