my wounds will start to heal

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

Things you will probably do if you live in Detroit: Call the Fire Dept.

I’ve called the Fire Department a few times since I moved to Detroit. Still haven’t gotten used to it, it’s still epic.

I never called the Fire Department anywhere else that I have ever lived, until I moved here, to Detroit, um, WTF….

This time, at about the stoke of 12 on Valentines Day morning my neighbors house was turning into orange and red pixie dust floating in a cloud up into the atmosphere….. I called 911, somebody had to.

Detroit Fire
At about the stoke of twelve my neighbors house was vaporizing in flame.

unexpected catharsis from my Detroit ptsd

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.

Well! I’m off to JavaScript class now at Grand Circus, totally pumped to take this class! My friend Jeseekia is teaching it, and she is so smart and code savvy and creative! Peace ya’ll!

Java Script Class tonight YES!!!!

Work Spot

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.
