Traced & painted my hands for this werkk of the day:
“We declare our right on this earth…to be a human being, to be respected as a human being, to be given the rights of a human being in this society, on this earth, in this day, which we intend to bring into existence BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY”- Malcolm X
Michael Brown may your sweet soul be at peace, sending Love to your Family. Ferguson you all are held,know that I stand with you with in solidarity. For all the ppl of like fate from jim crow to this day I acknowledge you,remember you and I love you, praying (whilst moving my feet) for your peace & justice.
#Justice Aiyana Jones, Sean Bell, Oscar Grant, Mary Turner, Sam Hose, Amadou Diallo, Trayvon Martin, Rekia Boyd, Renisha McBride Alfred Wright, Eric Garner,Tarika Wilson, Jordan Davis, John Crawford, Troy Davis, Timothy Russell, Malissa Williams Emmett Till, Tyisha Miller, Kendrick Johnson , George Stinney, Kendra James.. countlesss others whose names & stories I may never hear but you matter(ed) & are loved.

Do y’all know that episode of Doctor Who where Martha has to travel all over the world to tell ppl to think/chant “Doctor” all at once at a certain time and it is so powerful that it rejuvenates the Doctor and saves the whole universe? :) I know it’s a tv show but where do you think they got it from?? Our thoughts and words can and do determine our physical reality. This isn’t just metaphysics or spiritual ‘fluff’ but it is quantum physics as well (energy + vibration=matter). Tonight at 7pm there will be numerous vigils, moments of silence, demonstrations held in various locations to honor victims of police brutality and to show solidarity. Of course there is a lot of work to be done regarding this situation & other probz, but the power of Prayer..intention however you see fit is a force to be reckoned with. 7pm! 7pm!Don’t forget!God Bless yaa

Thank you, your blog is much appreciated love!:)

All the recent tragedies remind me of the Strange Fruit/Jim Crow piece I want to do…To commemorate the victims and bring what light I can to a very insidious and heartbreaking pattern. I’ve been sitting on it for awhile, but haven’t quite werkked it out fully. The idea will come when it comes..

And my Head told my Heart, “Let Love grow.” But my Heart told my Head, “This time no, this time no.’- Mumford and Sons
Who are y’all siding with in this convo?? Generally I’m more of a Heart kind of girl, choosing to stand on the side of Love. But I think the traditional Head v Heart roles have been flipped in this song! Hmmmm


Medium- Water soluble pastels, acrylic, &ink marker on wood panel.
