"

There is a search
For something fruitful
For something new
There is no way we can reinvent the wheel, but there are different ways we can travel thru

This is why I wait.
Sitting back in dark silent rooms
Talking to self, transporting past
Metaphoric illusions & distractions
For cultures sake
We are the changes we want to see
In this life, the last one & the next.

why is it such a challenge to find a positive/non-traumatic film with a black leading lady? 
it has been two weeks & i am just now feeling my cycle activating
day one : spent alone
reflections of self reminding me to breathe. 
black eyed susan & star tulip for morning meditation
repeate haka/manta 
nuk pu nrt hmt
with the intention of of experiencing more than we just believe

it is about time we surface

conversations with the brothas. 
something like kin. 

an honorable elder used the word 
"alignment"
which resonated / light bulb 
as I felt my body click

my sis pointed out she stop breathing when she went in her head
"teleport-ed" 
tick
tick
tick
"it’s ok to be present"
experience & embrace
the process of all of this

breathe
