All I can say is like magic this piece came to me in the wee hours. Sweet simplicity but layered. Oh so layered. This time around I’ve created a piece for the viewer to fully interpret, no assistance from me. Unlock the meaning of this collage. Perhaps it’s not so deep. On the other hand, it may be. It all depends on what you see.
Framed print available in 8X10, 12X16, 16X20, 18X24 & 24X26 here.

In unkempt fashion once again I present to you an audio collage of journaling in time release format. Thoughts, ideas and abstract concepts streaming more of subconscious than consciousness. FOOL. is an ongoing project of mixed media. Songs, humor sketches, poems, video and fill in the ______. Once you’ve opted in for said experience by clicking download and entering your email address, you will be updated whenever new material is added to this open ended project. Oh yes, this is definitely gonna be uncomfortable and feel good at the same time. A leap into another process of pure art delivery. #FOOLSareSMART #unkemptsummer.
This project is absolutely free, aside for your email of course. But if you’d like to give me a tip to contribute to more art creation at a quality level, please feel free to drop some coin.
I briefly had a site up starting in 2007 called “Life’s Magic”. It’s funny looking back and seeing what my approach has been to become more aware and advance forward in this journey. I think about the reality that I’ve created for myself, through my words, thoughts and actions of the past. Looking at this post from my former site, nearly a decade ago, I see how much of these things have come to pass.

For those of you who haven’t, let me be the first to introduce you to a simple method of bringing what you want in life to the forefront so that you can better attain these desires. (My focus has never been on material riches, perhaps being independently sound and or financially secure so don’t expect anything of a get rich nature being spoken of).
Alright here’s the exercise. It’s incredibly simple. Take a moment. Grab a pen and a piece of paper or open up a notepad file. Now, write down what it is that you truly want for yourself, your family, friends or generally the world around you. Your intentions are powerful when they are pure and genuine. When doing this exercise, anchor the intentions you list by saying, ‘I choose’ or ‘I intend to’. You are setting a precise precedent for what you will ultimately create in this present moment. The following is an example of a list I recently made for myself that I sent to my companion. Oftentimes we need to remind ourselves what it is that we want and in order to regain focus, seeing these things right in front of us is helpful in getting us back on track.
I hope that wasn’t too long. I really wanted to share something that has been very helpful to me with you.
Have fun with this exercise. Do not feel pressured to write the longest intention list ever written. No, the main purpose is to use this method to get you lined up and square with those things in life that you want to create for yourself. Not later or the next week. Right now. Once you realize your power and begin to exercise it, it will grow and become stronger. Like the fitness gurus would assure you before a focused and intensive fitness program, ‘You will see results!’.
Enjoy this exercise and share it with someone that you care about. Steel sharpens steel. Sharing anything that helps you will only serve to help others and create more power to affect change in your immediate life circle.
Day 13 of a cleanse. I’m glad that I am.
A spirit in a body still learning how to manipulate all of its switches. I reflect on memories of a past me. Ignorant. Somewhat malleable. Fearful of things as only I could be, based on what I was taught. Not having the slightest control over my ego or emotions. The pair that rule your physical body. The two that anchor you into beliefs that limit the possibility of you seeing beyond the one lens you came packaged with.
Awareness comes as you begin to question the reality you fell into when you entered this place. At some point you may come into a knowing. A knowing, that you can shift that reality. It’s a hard fight though. The way the mind works. Everything you consume through your senses is data. It becomes you. You become it. Without a filter or ability to sort and shift these things into proper position; you’re lost.
Life is a journey, to find you.
This album art is the first in a series of shots presenting the HER character spoken of in ‘i need a HER’ from the FOOL. project. Each image is of one interesting HER.
A couple years before Yasiin changed his name from Mos Def, I took this photo during his AfroPunk set. One of my favorites. I was able to capture a few that would be worthy of viewing, if only I could locate them for presentation. Perhaps one day they will resurface.
Change is up to you. The Choice is yours. You do have control…
my haiku edits
liken to pruning banzai
a careful practice
under bus been thrown
by best of friend
but… no scars
baggage, beneath the charter
new, wardrobe in order
i left issues behind
to dry on line
shrivel up in sun
and crumble, to dust
blowing in wind
wash the past
as they say
water… under a structure built to span a valley, road, body of water, or other physical obstacle, for the purpose of providing passage over the obstacle.
