(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 ...
