" sky access "

it's so much lovelier here that i imagined. a convex/concave double-mirror'd world installed on an astrotuf hillock. and why not at all?

sublime design within simple shapes. this is the portal to a form of heaven on earth.

a lightness of being, the laughter of these small children lifting the weights of gravity off my shoulders,

and i lift away.

tonight's homework:

find a release in a moment, respect the purity of that moment, and let it extend towards its natural end. there are such beautiful occurrences throughout the day. i'm wishing you the best in locating just a one.

" you are not alone "

---

chin up!

our moment here is so brief, but the lasting effects of our lives are so long. you're making an impact each day, and everyone notices.

the most simple action has significant impact, sometimes without you noticing. there is love, positive energy, bliss, and solace in your every interaction.

this is not to say do the bare minimum. be out in the world. walk the streets and paths through the city, town, village. the more time you put into seeing the world around you, the more you'll benefit from being in it.

the more care you put into your relationships and conversations, the more you're gleam and shimmer.

whenever you feel down, know that you are that special ingredient which makes it all worthwhile. there is no one quite like you, and even in those times you feel like you don't deserve it, you are praised, needed, wanted, desired, and integral to this whole thing.

tonight's homework:

the universe is so much better with you in it, so leave that desk, talk a stroll, and see what fantastic mischief you can get yourself into.

" the end of things is the beginning "

---

sometimes the good news is bad news while bad news is still bad news, screaming is pleasurable though you go hoarse, crying is happiness and your guts ache with joy, cuts are thrilling though the thrill is breif, pain is exhilerating while a soft touch excruciating. 

we revel in this gray area emotional wonderland of reality and fantasy mashing all the best parts together. if there a true sense of happiness without the somber, or a sense of the self without the sense of mortality? how can you know a true contentment until you know where the parameters of the spectrum are?

i am the interconnected three-dimensional venn diagram with so may shaded-in areas, who could help but notice the Self that i am. my certain flavor is so complex, some do not know how to react; am i a relief or a menace?

sometimes the end of things are the beginning, and we've nothing to do but ponder, meet it at the gates, allow it in, and deal with the crossing of the line. too many things intersect at the same time to think of anything as a straight line. so take a moment, and feel free to move on.

tonight's homework:

ake some time to reevaluate your true interests. are they safe? are they detrimental? do they make you proud? would the continuation of them make your parents blush? have a think upon your base motivations, and see where that line of thought takes you. i bet more than anything, you'll rediscover that you may have been correct about yourself all along, and that nothing at all is wrong with anything.

" burnt caramel and stale molasses "

---

"a subtlety, or the marvelous sugar baby," by kara walker: an artistic and multiple sculptural installation piece, as seen from the near-entrance of the now defunct domino sugar factory.

it touches upon the sugar trade itself, the subjugation of black women and sexuality, slavery, mammification, and racism in the states/in general.

powerful invisible fumes of dark sickly sweetness permeated the dank air inside the factory. the feeling of despair resounded throughout the space. we were not witness to solely a modern interpretation; we were allowed an entrance into seeing into the past. this was a time machine.

i noticed the diversity and the communal energies lingered on silence, small discussion, docent-led group tours, laughter, hipstery affected non-nonchalance, confrontations, discussions, and photography not because of photography, but so that people knew they were there.

all at once.

the themes explored, the majesty of the sphinx, the nuances, the odors, the lighting as they came into the space, shafted by the slotted windows high above...it made an indelible mark.

" garden rituals "

---

when dreams begin to cross the threshold into reality, sparks fly, the mind expands, and each atom in the universe comes to rest. all matter manifests in a shape of your choosing, and the vibrations of magnetic fields caress.

we find ourselves in the proper place, and stillness permeates through the white noise. the clutter of abstract thought finds its alignment. people understand each other. you breath fuller.

we plant the seeds into the ether, and everything flourishes and blossoms.

you for at least a moment find your stride, and your soul beams.

tonight's homework:

create one piece of art in your life, success or folly, and revel in your complete ability to put something new into the world.

" in dark times "

---

dear yourself in dark times,

right now you are doing great, and doing great things. it's summertime, and the sun is shining high and hot in a clear blue. the season has shifted, and each day, everything is looking up and forward.

but when you feel all other lights are dimmed and fleeting, i will try my best to be a light for you.

no more sadness no more loneliness, no more anguish or despair. i am always nearby, willing to help.

the best things about this life are those things that you can count on. and you can count on me.

love,

you from ten minutes ago

tonight's homework:

remind yourself that you are awesome, loved, important, and meaningful.

" the three graces "

---

remember to find some time to play. play is very important in life, and this cannot be understated.

in play you find a release of endorphins, and a lowering of self-consciousness through a flexing of creativity. you find a safe place to find your Self, explore roles, situations, and delve into the inner recesses of imagination before unleashing all that energy out into the world. there's such a flourish of beauty which transcends fears and embarrassment with elation, joy, and ceaseless fun.

it's so integral to building confidence, strength, shaping a sense of wonderment, glee, and one of those beautiful activities which will completely set you free.

 there’s no casual inhabiting spaces anymore. we’re on a trek through the hollows and the decay. 
 with the weather finally hinting and teasing us more and more that it wants us to be in the sunlight, what other option is there but to put feet to pavement? 
 look at that door! what?! what!!? where how who is it how long and how come? so many questions begging answers inciting interest forming all of those little silica which electrify and outstretch. 
 just please take a little miniscule serving of time in each day to appreciate the smaller details. chipped nail polish on long fingers, eyelashes clumped with mascara batting in the light, the swish of a skirt in the afternoon, smells of your favorite foods, the texture of the bricks on the walls. 
 yearning, gleaning, absorbing, genuflecting, and so many emotions all at once. simple things, simple times, simple pleasures. 
 no time to lose & everything to gain.

just having a movement in your legs propelling you forward, destination unknown…or known, will allow you the opportunity to see so many new things.

you’ll see textures, smell alluring smells, feel surfaces, and other sensory stimulation as well. plural! i promise!

put one foot in front of the other. walk in a direction previously unexplored. take a friend or two, or three. now you’re doing it.

that’s it. you’ve got it.

bravo.
