Life. Puzzle Pieces. Life. Lines. Life. Alignment. Shapes. Placement. God. GOD.
Faith. Lived. Unpuzzled. Aligned. Shaped. Placed. God. Thanked. GOD.
Some things are over. Some things have just begun. Sometimes I have trouble distinguishing between the two. What things last forever? Sometimes that question doesn't matter. ...my random thoughts. Peace & Light J-J
I'm discovering the world of sub-places. They are much like sub-categories.
At this moment, I am exactly where I am supposed to be doing exactly what I am supposed to be doing.
I am in a great place.
However, at the same exact time, I am in a sub-place... and I know that I am not supposed to be doing what I am doing there.
...but in order to be in this great place, I must sink for a bit. Sub-level...
...until I may fly again. Then soar.
Here's a little preview for everyone awaiting the release of my album "WHAT KINDA LOVERY IS THIS..." Album is almost completed and we are already preparing for a promo tour. In the meantime, we've been booking some spot performances to give folks a preview of what we have in store with this project.
I've had the opportunity to team up with some of the BEST in the Northwest!!! So happy to have been blessed with an opportunity to fly my DJ (DJ OD) in from LA to perform with me... which lead to the bridge that lead me to these fine folks!!! Marvin Shields - Bass Player Extraordinaire took a break from his main baby to hop on the drums. His energy is contagious! Khmet and & Vaneiya have so much soul!!! They OWNED each track and it's amazing how a vision I've had years ago is finally coming to LIFE! DJ OD... he's been rockin' with me for yeeeeeears and we've made so much progress.
This is truly a blessing!!!

Now that you've read this... What's on your mind?
Love is VERY powerful. As with any type of power, it can be dangerous if it is not utilized properly. I encourage you all to use the Power of LOVE to BUILD... not to DESTROY. Whether it is the destruction of others or self, it is pointless. Use that power to LOVE yourself and a hand picked selection of others.
It is unfortunate that people use pure love to destroy themselves. It should be the opposite. Love is beautiful but people focus on the ugly effects of temporary pain and during that time, they do the most unhealthy shit. Embrace LOVE and you will feel GREAT more than you feel like shit...
Love is NOT an EXCUSE. Love does NOT Hurt. Pain Hurts. Stop confusing the two. Do not be a victim of self-inflicted propaganda against the purities of Love.
With that said, if you are going to have your guard up against anything, it shouldn't be against love. In fact, let Love be your shield against darkness and hate. Try it.
I was born on February 26, 1985. Trayvon Martin was MURDERED on February 26, 2012. No matter how good of person you are, every single day there is a chance that you may not make it to see another day. We can not take our lives for granted, nor can we allow someone to get away with taking the life of this young man! At the time of his murder, I was exactly one decade older than him. Do you know how much living occurs in a decade? I am disgusted that his killer is free while this child's family has to face the fact that there are so many dreams that their son will never be able to achieve thanks to a combination of hate, guns and misuse of some self-appointed "power." So many decades that he will never get to live. ...and the justice system is okay with that, right?
I wonder how the conversation goes when our Souls talk to one another while we are asleep at night.
I know they converse because every time I wake up next to you, I feel this weight in my chest.
Heavy with Joy. It is the same feeling I get when I hear one of my favorite Soul songs.
Maybe you are my Soul song.
Perhaps that is why I have you on repeat throughout the day. All throughout my mind.
I dance to the thought of You.
If we were to replay each moment that we have shared, we could warm the winterlands and melt inches of snow into lifetimes. ...and Puddles.
Puddles are cycles. Let us enjoy them. Splash around in them like when we were 6 years old back in a cold Midwest February.
Let us enjoy them.
Eventually the puddles will dry.
That just means the sun has come out to provide a familiar warmth to what our memories hold.
That just means we are blessed. We do not depend on looking back.
The sun light will light up our path so that our Memories can be just that - Memories.
Not reasoning, but Memories. Not fuel, but Memories.
I bet the fuel comes from the conversations that our Souls have at while we are asleep at night.
I bet they are both Left and Right Brains. Because loving you is a dream, but is most logical.
Let me enjoy you
(to be continued and rearranged eventually so that it is not all over the place... Hmmm, sounds like Love, doesn't it? Fine tuning... until it is just right. ...and oh how you are just right!)
You get excited about things that I'm already excited about...which makes things even more exciting.
....and I'm excited about loving You.
I won't ask for your permission to do so, because I already Love you.
Once upon a Time
There were Two Giants
They made each other feel small
And never made it to peaks
That could only be reached by the Giants... Together
And they all lived Individually ever after.
