the legendary and honorable #katherinedunham has been in my spirit so much. i don’t know why but i am taking heed. i know after living in bahia, brasil for so long and being from kansas city, mo and living in nyc for as long as i have that our parallels are very unique … and that’s not counting the other spaces not only i’ve been but people of african descent in general. i am looking forward to what is to come. definitely, a bit nervous. but to be expected, right? i’d say so. *sigh* whatever she blesses me with i will give my all! that’s my word. she and others have really being making their presence known in my life. #inspiration

The world is at my feet and I am standing on the ceiling. And I fall, fall, fall, when it all comes down. And I won’t be crushed by the weight of this town. I fall from the sky but I won’t fall forever. I fall but when I rise I’ll be stronger than ever.Who am I kidding? I’m sad, no ideas coming. It’s driving me mad and I’m fighting it. I need your kindness cause the climb is always stressful. I’m not defeated, I believe that I can turn this ship around. Destroy the status quo until I know I found a common ground. I’m not alone, I’m just focused in my zone. This is easy. I’m fine. I just need time to turn this into home, I’m good, believe me. Believe me when I say I’m gonna be big explosions, crack through thunderous mountains. Hearts exploding, minds, volcanoes pop and blow.

I want to live the rest of my life, however long or short, with as much sweetness as I can decently manage, loving all the people I love, and doing as much as I can of the work I still have to do. I am going to #art fire until it comes out of my ears, my eyes, my noseholes—everywhere. Until it’s every breath I breathe. I’m going to go out like a fucking meteor!
