You want this? (then) Give it to me. Trust in the reciprocal act. But I’m afraid, and fear is a lack of trust. Fear is anger.

<NOTES _ MARCH 30, 2016

HOW CAN DANCE BE MORE LIKE GRAFFITI


 

<NOTES _ MAY 22, 2016

i think there’s a difference between
1) not loving yourself
and
2) being lonely.

it’s like they make it your fault -- “just love yourself. that’s all you need.” 
you can love yourself AND be lonely. they can both be true. and it doesn’t mean you’re doing something wrong. i am lonely because there is a profound Absence.

 

 

<NOTES _ JUNE 4, 2016

  “The quagmires we find ourselves in right now are the perfect alignment of inner and outer circumstances that are bringing us to the pivotal moment of choice and change. We can keep doing what we have always done and keep on getting what we have always got OR we can change.

 

 

<NOTES _ JUNE 14, 2016

“all objects, rightly perceived, are already full.”

 

 

<NOTES _ JUNE 25, 2016

love is not the thing we are are waiting to “be ready” for
love. there’s no such thing as ready. 
you just decide. 
you just do it. 
all i hear you saying is i’m scared i’m scared i’m scared i’m scared

i don’t care what your pretend reasons are
(i’m scared i’m scared i’m scared) 
love doesn’t give a fuck if you’re scared. the invitation doesn’t change to accommodate your fears.

love isn’t a thing you are ready for. it’s a thing that comes. next time, it would behoove you to say yes.


 

<NOTES _ JUNE 27, 2016

the tree is already dead
the man is in the earth put the dead tree into the earth
go into the earth
put your heart in a bowl. bury it. because
he’s in the ground. 
i’m sinking into the earth into something that knows me
because i am made of it.

“there is leverage in alignment that is nearly undefinable.” hicks

watch sad boys by mad boots
audre lorde uses of the erotic



 

<NOTES _ JUNE 21, 2016

billboard… annoying.

our whole semblance of peace is wrong -- “peace” is who has the bigger gun that can make the other gun quiet. “peace” is accomplished through violence. but peace is really when there are reactions of peace towards others.

the “peacemakers” are the presence of violent weapons that will “keep the peace.”  why are guns even in the FUCKING conversation? if it’s always going to be a draw, then it will always be a question of one life over another. because there is the capacity and expectation of violence within every single GODDAM weapon.

 

 

<NOTES _ AUGUST 7, 2016

i know. 
i was there.

arch cape, oregon

a little life

attention -- simone weil -- maybe art is prayer. for those of us who aren’t sure how to pray.

doing what you love →  essence vs. structure

what if aesthetics are just the bridge, the thread of associative connectivity.

what does an image mean today?

is there an inherent ethical fibre to the tapestry of aesthetics?

does insisting on making careers out of it take away some of its revolutionary quality? is it, in fact, more conservative to need it to be legitimized by career?

<NOTES _ DECEMBER 3, 2016

being in your body as a cultural, spiritual practice. a radical act of meaning making.

 

 

<NOTES _ DECEMBER 5, 2016

i’ve heard so many times that the whole universe is “conspiring” with me. and maybe that’s true. it is often more optimistic than i can truly participate in. what if the universe just IS. and we’re a part of it.

more like we are the same fabric -- if i lean in one direction, the other threads must follow.  
more like sharing sheets on the bed -- if i pull, my desired covers come to me; and if you’re in my sheets, you’ll come to me, too.

 

 

<NOTES _ DECEMBER 9, 2016

surrender is ultimately alignment

 

 

<NOTES _ DECEMBER 27, 2016

it’s interesting how people misunderstand when virtuos -ity isn’t displayed as a primary value.  

 

 

<NOTES _ DECEMBER 28, 2016

alignment isn’t about anything outside of oneself.

 

 

<NOTES _ DECEMBER 30, 2016

that your body would be flourishing with health, joy, abundance + pleasure
