been a lil over a month since my last post.. and there are many different reasons why, many of which i do not know about.. and that is ok. it is purposeful. at any rate, i was moved to post tonite.

yesterday afternoon, i went for a ride, east on 74, with my folks to see a few family members. i call it the country. my roots. they go deep. on both sides. from what most people, where i'm from, would call a place like this. it is much slower. very rural. and very peaceful. that is probably one of the things i can appreciate most.. the peacefulness. and of course, mother nature full in effect. and the mosquitoes were everywhere.

these sunflowers were gorgeous. my camera doesn't really give them all the glory.. you just had to be there. i hopped out and began with caution.. there were bumblebees everywhere. pollenating. minding their business. i am told they are not "aggressive" like honey bees and wasps and such.. but that didnt really matter to me because they still sting. and, i was in their territory.

the flowers reminded me of life. the bees reminded me of life. and how everything IS connected. everything in cycle. we must remember this. this applies all thruout life. as i cultivate and nourish this seed, i keep this close to heart. who i am, affects my seed and those close to me. what i do, or don't.. what i say, or not... my thoughts, feelings and emotions are directly connected. and saying this, i am being as peace as i can. it is challenging but it is possible. what i think, manifests. what i do, is that manifestation. with every action, there is a reaction AND consequence, whether its immediate or not.

like the sun, water, bees, flowers, air, soil... all of these things are a part of life.

we need to get back to this. living like this. being mindful of all that we are (or aren't).

it's all relative.

with this seed growing, turning, floating, swimming inside...
it only makes me strive to be my best now and always.
no time for bull or anything lifeless..
only LIGHT.
and if you ain't with that..
no love lost..
but i can't help you because it is not my purpose.
my purpose is bigger than me.
and it's growing everyday.

meesh, cause she's great

it was a hot ass day in greensboro.
i can just imagine what summer will be like..
and it was her birthday nonetheless.

we needed to "waste" some time..
so we kinda wandered the uncg campus.

i got lots of photos of her, most from the nite before.
these were some of my favorites.

she was hilarious that nite.
things are always funnier when she's around.

this is meesh the great...
cause she's great.

"cover me"

while i crawl into the unknown
cover me

i'm going hunting for mysteries
cover me

i'm going to prove the impossible really exists
this is really dangerous
cover me

but worth all the effort
cover me

i'm going to prove the impossible really exists

meesh. revisited.

a friend of mine recently posted something about revisiting old ideas.
and i've been meaning to pay meesh a visit.
these pictures were taken last late summer/early autumn..
sometime in september.
i remember the day.
the sun wasn't "out"..
there was an overcast even..
but it was hot as hell.
we were sweating.
i was excited about hanging out with meesh..
and excited to use these lenses my cousin (thanks ishmael) let me use.

we wandered the streets of charlotte.
found an "empty" lot..
where people once lived.
lots of steps were left behind.

this is just one picture i captured of meesh..
i'll post the others in a bit.

frida kahlo was the subject.
along with convo..
and a lil music.

ok, so....
it's official..
chad cartwright is THEE King of Collage.

[[ tho he is not just a collager ]] *smile*

he'll take unwanted magazines and such off your hands..
a better way than you throwing them out.

he's that kinda artist-friend that continue to inspire me.. keeps the fire quietly going.. and he doesn't even know it. thanks chd:wrd for the random & not-so-random conversations.

so we (josh & i) decided to link & wander one sunday early afternoon, which happened to be like one of the hottest days in spring so far. felt a bit like summer, which is why i couldn't understand how & why he decided to wear that dark denim jacket. he claims he wasn't hot... all i know is, i saw him sweatin'. :)

strength of the Sun.

the Sun shines on all things.

whenever i listen to Cazeaux's music..
i get this feeling inside..
and his soul gets it right..

summer was unsettled.
eased on into autumn and the most of winter.
spring will be much calmer.
i know this.

there is something about being near the coast..
and i miss it.
these waters in particular feel safe.

rainy days are needed.
i like mine muggy.
and bridges. lots of bridges.
heavy clouds.

skies for days it seems.
warm.. and sweet.


i am safe
in her presence.

"time" is,
never enough.

you know how i feel...

i get to see this from my bedroom window.. yes.

my day ALWAYS feels complete when i'm able to see the Greater of me, do what It do.
what will be..
will be
what was done..
is done.
breathe in..
and let it all out.
the setting of the sun makes me feel a way..
like peace.



now time..

brain activity.

sometimes the more you talk with someone, the more you get to know them. and sometimes, the more time spent, the better understanding.
i know that to look at someone's art (whether visual, audio, etc..) and to truly feel it, you get to know them even deeper. sometimes it just translates easier. it's brain activity. it's the manifestation of the inner to the outer world. creation is essential. imagine a world without it. i cannot fathom.
expression is everything.

[thank you for sharing your space]
