(a short ramble) moon … process … work … balance

I’ve always been drawn to the power and beauty of the moon. A few months ago during the eclipse i truly felt a magical moment which i still have yet to understand.
I do know that often times i get my creative insight & artistic impulses. I also know that i am most productive when i have the energy of women in my immediate area. when this is combined with the power of community and it’s role in my life my “superdude” comes out and then i need help focusing on all my great ideas.

I think i’m mentioning this because … well … actually i don’t know.

But i do feel like things are about to take off and i want you to know that when u have a clarity in your process and in your macro & micro role in the universe then you are in a position of power. The kind of power that allows you to make things happen as well as the kind of power that allows you to recognize & adjust to those things that are not in your hands.

For me this life is about maintaining balance and connecting my community resources/social capital, mental capacity, spritual well being,emotional & physical health.

This is what i’m trying to maintain as ritual in my life so that i can focus on more creative aspects of life.

That’s all for now …

I look forward to gsharing a few COMPLETED projects w/ you in the next 2 moths as i get a little more external sunshine in my life! (Thanks spring!)

Do your thing …

kool herc … egypt … STARBLAZERS 2011 … my peoples … my people … explain my heart (saul williams)

the past few days have been heavy on my heart …

the health issues of KOOL HERC (combined with the dismissal of the health care reform bill)

i believe that any radio station that claims to be a HIP-HOP stations should donate to assist with his health cost … they have the money are going to continue to make money from hip-hop. the artist aren’t really making money so i don’t think that they should be the first ones called upon … but … it’s not a million dollars! these cost can be covered in one fell swoop by the right person. (jay-z, diddy, jermaine dupree, russell simmons, andre harrell, etc)

but as a fan … and believer that you should do what you can instead of waiting on others to do for you … here is where you can donate …

the other thing is … the beauty and madness of the changes in egypt …

many of you know that i am a man of the people … i get excited when u see the people step up and take control over a situation that they feel is unjust. so much so, that i get physically agitated.

power to the people!

and now …
