he smiled at me as i came out of “the holy moment” his eyes stayed right on mine and my wounds softened and faded farther down, he helped heal me just by looking so much like you.
my head throbbed all day and she caught me in her arms as i landed back down, again, on terra firma in the sun, by your house she feels it, too she lives by you and he has your name too and his sorta smile felt good today riding into the rising sun the setting sun…. i faced it, i must feel safe, i must be safe….
i sang to you, i was threatened today, i said ‘HAH’ an found a new jamming buddy and rocked groovy beats, i made my own spot, spots all the green paper swirrerled around me in the gentle tiny breeze as i transcended an eddy storm and found hearts, watch me as i levitate hahahahahaaaaah
dont stop get it get it, we are the captains in it watch me as i levitate hah hah ha ha haaaah
Hi, maybe that headline is a weebit dramatic, but I still feel unexpectedly better after a conversation that I had last night after my bi-weekly aerobix class at Trumbleplex….
I met this French traveler and we struck up this conversation and I told her how I used to live in this really poverty stricken neighborhood of Detroit and she just got it, she was like yeah, it’s like when a rich person moves to a poverty sticken country and the people there just descend upon them, yes, that is totally what happened to me, and it was rough until I moved out of there, to New Center. And now, I am pretty much over it, but I told her how it did something to me that I don’t think I will ever lose, some kind of compassionate quality that I got now, I mean, I was pretty compassionate before but it goes deep now.
Key to success as working as a renegade freelancer is a killer sweet & rockin workspace, IMHO…. a co-workingspace is the best! A spot to come everyday where people are working on stuff in an uber-productive setting. Don’t get me wrong working at cafes is also nice for sure, but a dedicated co-workingspace is an essential that I am happy to have as part of my freelancer kit.
I work on projects at Tech Town one of the sweetest workspots for remote & freelance people such as I that I have ever had the pleasure to work at. The vibe here is golden! Check out their site and you will see what I mean.
This is the V2 of my zine. I dwell in Detroit, this is an amazing raw place with a giant heart that is kneck deep in rapid growth and reinvention…for real…..And I mean RAPID! You can see it growing up by the week, it’s quite surreal, never seen anything like it.
