So I originally had a quote here from Austin Powers referencing gold but it was blocked...😔so now I can only reference the line about loving gold lolol. But for real, gold on black is classic. This was a project for my little cousin’s 19th birthday a couple weeks back (little 👶🏽)! I really like showing the process, I want to do more of these! What do you think???
“Sanity Loading...” - the latest from my journal. Check out the link in my bio for more of my thoughts and creative writing pieces ✍🏻
Like running, I find writing to be very therapeutic. And sharing it feels like a great big exhale after holding my breath too long! #writetobreathe .
I know it won’t resonate with everyone but putting it out in the universe always makes me feel bigger than I am and it gives me closure on whatever I’m processing 🤔 #expressyourself#creativewriting#writetoexpress#createinspireshare //

Here’s a Verse I wrote and threw away —“ My life is like a yoyo /
can't walk in my shoe’s Homie
you gone need a GoPro/
The life that Eye envision is
Heaven on Earth 🌏
Police inside of the dirt
Glits Gold n Glamour
With my family out the Slammer
In a Mansion with my Mama in house like mc hammers,
You nigga’s can't feel my pain
But you can hear my story
N Recognize my Glory
N know that I ain't worried....
Until then, don’t tell me nothing again
and if you don’t really Love me then don’t even pretend, I got my Brothers and my Sisters I don’t need’no’mo friends,
Getting High In the Trap I rather be in a Benz, S Class Maybach on a Road that don’t end “
💃Once upon a time, I was a dancer! Dance was the anchor in my life and also a great way of staying fit and healthy! I was mainly a ballroom and Latin dancer (yes, the dancing with stars kind).. and I also dabbled in flamenco, Brazilian samba, Argentine tango and come the weekends- as much salsa, zouk and African dancing I could!
💃I even danced walking down the streets and while walking around the lab doing experiments! Which was fine till you suddenly realised you had an audience! How else could I cope with 12 hour stints? Music in my ears and rhythm on my feet!
💃Even when I had way too much to do- study, research, teach, work, volunteer... I always made time for dance and it’s really important to have an outlet such as this in our busy lives today.
💃When New Years rolled around this time, I was sleeping from being exhausted from travel and outreach and rescues so I never really feel like my new year has started. And then I woke up and kept working 16 hour days! Why does it have to be Jan 1st anyways?!
💃So, when I do start my new year... I resolve to get back to my dancing! What was your resolution this new year? Will you be trying to go vegan with me?

Beloved starseeds, beloved commanders of light now is the time that you are asked to move into your next evolutionary phase and become sovereign co-creators, divine alchemists, galactic shape-shifters, sound-scapers, vibrational healers.... divine miracle makers of the highest galactic order... yes nothing less than that is what you came here to be. We are you from a different dimensional reality here to remind you. As you say.... Note to self... You have proven to being able to move huge amounts of density... mountains of pain, denial and repression... to transmute and shapeshift huge amounts of darkness into light within yourself and within the planet itself. And yet many of you are still playing small... still holding back, still believing they lack in ability, in power, in education, in love, in focus, in deserving.... because you are afraid of your power. Yes many of you have remembrance stored within of how you may have misused your power in the past, but that was the past and you are not your past. You create yourself anew every single moment, with every breath, every thought... you create a vibration, that shapes you into who you are in this present moment physically, mentally, emotionally and vibrationally. You shape your reality.
Please discern and monitor what beliefs you hold of yourself. You are nothing less than limitless power, pure source energy and not in lack of anything. Your mind may tell you otherwise, but this is not in honor of who you truly are. You are the limitations you set upon yourself and block the energy flow when you doubt your ability and power. You kill your creative power. Please listen carefully.
There is no lack other than that, which you create in your mind. None! The gift of imagination paired with pure divine intent and fuelled by your soul´s passion and love can create any given reality, can heal any wound, unless something in you is given power to sabotage it. Examine and monitor your thoughts... whenever you doubt, you are not aligned with the create life force, the shakti creative chi energy within the morphegenetic field of infinite possibility.

This piece was created using the technique, #sgraffito which involves much layering and scraping back into the work. The palette is soothing and the intuitive lines and subtle forms add interest. ••••••••••••••••••••••••••

In an alternate reality, there lives a creature not known to many. She loves by the moon and lives by the sun. She lurches in the shadows of her own being, and comes out only when the time is as it should be.
At night, her mind bursts open like confetti with thoughts passing by...how powerful the mind can be. But it isn't. The night passes softly as her dreams drift threw her mind, like boats traveling into uncharged oceans...deep with things unknown.
The sun rises early and she rubs the sleep from her eyes, wiggling her toes. Soon she is found in the fields, searching for the tallest sunflowers. Their early-morning dewey pedals match the colors in her eyes, sprinkled with star dust.
Somehow, she finds the tallest stalks that seem to form a sacred circle around chocolatey-sweet, soft dirt. She is magically lured into this safe space and nestles in quickly.
Her back on the ground, her face towards the sky. She aches with desire to gaze upon the drifting clouds, framed by the yellows, greens, and oranges from the sunflower petals surrounding her. Each cloud tells a tale, paints a picture, tickles the imagination. They go wherever her mind goes. 🐝🌻
allow yourself to be surprised by just how much you can recover from with grace.
i wrote this poem for @wi1ki3 as a part of my dedication series. she requested a poem about ‘resilience’. if you’d like to request a personal poem, leave a comment below and i’ll DM you! ❤️
“I used to think I was the strangest person in the world but then I thought there are so many people in the world, there must be someone just like me who feels bizarre and flawed in the same ways I do. I would imagine her, and imagine that she must be out there thinking of me, too. Well, I hope that if you are out there and read this and know that, yes, it’s true I’m here, and I’m just as strange as you.”
- Frida Kahlo
Embrace your bizarre and flawed parts and stay strange no matter what.
