My New Canticle - Misericordia Mia

Wrote this today during lunch, inspired by Paco de Lucia's "La Paloma" and also any Latin Mother's lullabies

Hay Paloma, hay Paloma
Hay Paloma de mis ser
Ten misericordia mia, ten misericordia fiel

----Hay Paloma, Hay Paloma!
-----Hay Paloma de papel

Y este mundo va rotando, frota el cielo con mi piel
Dulce ave navegando, tierra seca pa Noe

------Fuerte olivo entre tus brazos,
--------traeme paz para dormir

Hay Paloma, hay Paloma
Hay Paloma de mis ser

Tranquilita palomita, canto un canto para ti.

Morning Meditates

I won't put on makeup today, but I will brush my teeth. I won't eat a greasy breakfast, but I will take my vitamins. I procrastinate when I have to leave my home because it pains me to transition into something concrete and specific. I long to be vulnerable to all elements. Maybe I should thank the earth for the rain and the snow today and pray that my weekend freedom is covered in sunshine and warmth. This winter may consume the last of me. But Kerry don't forget to put on your shoes and don't stomp so loudly down the corridor. You now have five minutes before it gets too late, before the subway has no mercy on your commute. I wonder why people keep getting hit by the subway at my station? It's been two in the last two months. Again, I tell myself tread lightly because there may be a wind that blows your feathery body away onto the streets, onto the tracks, or off a cliff. Remember your practice, the one you have polished bright and true. Remember your family, remember your friends, remember your legs. Now stop thinking and go to Work!

DaliGlama- InRivers

As many things go to decay and neglect, so do many things deserve a second chance and a resurrection. A couple of months ago I merged the musings of my personal blog with the DIY production brain I had established with fellow artist and collaborator Giancarlo Romero , called DaliGlama. For reasons personal and practical we ceased working on the project while he created his upstart gallery InRivers. Now in the midst of curating and performing we are back and focusing on culture, community, and the necessary role art plays in dragging people off their asses and into the light of productivity.

Lets Play: Figure Drawing class this Sunday. Yours truly will be modeling body formation attire. At the end everyone gets a hug-n-squeeze.
