nothing … poem … dr. angelou

I really don’t have anything to write about …
But i’m commited to write today …
So it’s time to be creative …
And since i can’t share the music in my head or sing this song to you … here’s a random poetic thought …

The moon held the kind of secrets only life tells death
the kind that scares hope, burdens fantasies and dews dreams before a day starts

The sun wandered in wonder … yet stayed silent
watched the tides ebb & flow
saw the awkward shift in the sea …
in the morning he shifted to the other side
That’s when he knew she was scared

Time had tricked fire into pulling a heist
But an onynx cloud spit on the idea ..

And sun prayed for the winds to whisper coltranes bassline to her …
and the she was soothed

And …
Oh …
I found this great quote from maya angelou …

“Every human being at some point will have clouds in their life. Some darker that others. You can go through the cloud, you can go around the cloud, or above it. No matter what, the light is always there. Your to seek, and to find.”

Have a great day …

I’m a spiritual person.

I believe that I am a small part of something that is so vast and expansive that it is truly beyond the realm of a mortal’s imagination.

my belief is that everything happens for a reason. the logic that schedules my moments and movements in this universe may or may not have anything to do with me. I am but a pawn in the grandest scheme of things … yet … this philosophy works in unison with the idea that we are smiliar to stars.

How? There are billions of stars out there in an infinite number of galaxies, yet to be discovered. .. but even within those glaxies there are some stars that SHINE brighter and are more relevant and influential to certain planets/rocks. Some stars are suns. Some stars become black holes, which in a way are inverted suns that instead of giving off light & heat energy, they absorb it. And yes, there are some stars that are bright and do nothing!

All that to say we are like stars in the sense that some people & stars are here for no apparent reason. And others are more influential and control planets, worlds & universes. Because of that some of us must take more responsibility for our actions/motions due to their influences on others.

I know which group i am in. I shine. And i say that witha humility that acknowledges that i am such a small part in this massive universe that i’m the equivalent to a hydrogen atom in the ocean.

(I used examples of the sun & water because i feel that theses are the most powerful yet under recognized influences on our planet.)

*note: this is just one of the many philosophies of mine … no, I haven’t done any research on it.

(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 …

kennedy center honors

dec. 9th 2008

so i just got finished doing this PA (production assistant) gig w/ the kennedy center honors. it was cool. PA’s put in long hrs in tv! i learned a lot. i was stationed in “the (production) truck”. where they directors call the show. viewing at least 15 monitors simultaneously … shouting commands to camera operators, announcers, stage managers, lighting techs, audio engineers and whoever else will make it happen in the way he’s seeing things come together. it’s a INCREDIBLE process.

of course the celebrities came out to celebrate morgan freeman, george jones, twyla tharp, pete townsend, roger daltry and barbara striesand. i’m not gonna say who performed … but here are few people that attended: glenn close, denzel washington, jack black, george bush, clint eastwood, ne-yo, garth brooks, beyonce, idina menzel & her husband taye diggs, bb king, george w bush, joss stone, pinetop perkins, koko taylor, randy travis, rob thomas, dave grohl, quincy jones, babyface, aretha franklin, dick cheyene, queen latifah and a host of others. PLUS … i was there too! you should have seen my tuxedo … killed em! (i’ll get a picture up eventually.) and my homie “munch” did his thing too. dude had a blue/black vintage tux w/ a pink tie … slayed em w/ flavor!!!

and the icing on the cake … condi rice had a date!!! i think that’s the only comment i can make on that!

but … the sprinkles on the icing (see … cats forget about that) bettye lavette!
you gotta watch on dec 30 to see her. that’s all im gonna say about that!
