The African symbology that embodies me forces my soul to awaken and find strength in truth. A wise elder once spoke to me and then blessed my eyes with an honorable path to freedom. As I apporached my fourth life cycle, I knew that death was on the horizon. Not knowing in what shape or … Continue reading Mind Trip

Setting the Sun on Virgo Season
Wrapping up another fantastic Virgo Season on the beaches of Lake Erie. We spent the beautiful day on the lake with the kayak and paddle board. photo by Chloephoto by Chloe https://youtu.be/bCjiyphVwrE
After hitting Lake Erie on the kayak, we took a nice chill trip to Lorain, OH for FIREFISH 2019! It's an eclectic, artistic wild and weird journey. Brother Carlos Jones and the P.L.U.S. Band were the headlining band. Definitely worth the hour drive. I heard that next year it's supposed to be on my BEarthday … Continue reading Firefish 2019

I don't eat pork and too little beef to really remember the last time I had any. I try to drink lots of water now, cut back on alcohol and … Continue reading Raw Vegan! (for 30 Days)
Raul de Nieves at Transformer Station
I stopped by the Transformer Station in the very cool Ohio City area on Cleveland's Near West Side for a quick peak at the Raul de Nieves exhibit. The number of figures were few (thus the quick peak), but getting a closer look at each figure, it's easy to understand why there weren't many.
