Psalms 8:2

good-bye ms. hooks

i just learned of bell hooks’ passing yesterday. she was the reason i ended up taking women’s studies classes throughout my bachelor’s education at sfsu. she spoke/wrote of things that resonated with me; explaining feelings and experiences that i believe i had felt my whole life – and didn’t have words or peers to share such things with.

things like, marginalization… that stands out for me.

i soaked up her writing – and remained fond of her presence her essence.

and so, i don’t mourn. for her essence remains strong with me – it hasn’t ended.

i do recognize the passing of a powerful being that helped humanity heal.

thank you, ms. hooks… and good-bye.

 

The Coastal Vibe

I’m back home.

I had a wonderful weekend visit with my brother, Chris, and more family with Laura and Joe who are packing up and heading uptown… well, up north for sure.

It truly was a very enriching weekend – and I shall leave my visit with my true love, Pepper, for another time – another place.

What was the challenge? (Because all great adventures have a challenge…)

Sitting in traffic, going nowhere, in the hot, valley heat.

It was trying to try my patience.

Luckily – I have playlists for daze!!

And the silver lining is I appreciate the coastal weather all the more…

Welcome home!

Beautiful Night

i’m a bit spent – which is good.

a lot has been accomplished this week; and yet, nothing at all

i am still in a state of seeking the unwavering consciousness of timeless Love.

Eternal being

…and I am grateful.

a lot has been accomplished this week. there is still a lot i want to do.

 

I walk upright; and I fall

Grace is not absent
She lifts my Spirit
When I accidentally drag it ’round

I know I’ve fallen
Because my eyes
See only flesh and ground

And every Loved being
Gets a second chance
One day, in Grace
We all shall have joined the dance

it is going to happen

if we continue to hang out together, i am going to piss you off. i am going to offend you. it is going to happen.

I do not wish to live in a world in which boundaries are not explored. we are infinite beings; created from infinite love.

ultimately, we are alive without borders….

so – i shall continue to look for the places in which we have hidden, or stopped, our Love.

of course, you have full permission to do so with me, too.

onward

end it all

I gotta admit, it’s been a real week.

dang it! I should have recorded and uploaded my 0Time earlier today…

I had a feeling.

If anything at all, life is fuckin’ rich! It ain’t boring!!

I just wish our children didn’t need to suffer the choices of their parents.

One day…
