A-musing

he takes pictures

i search for cafes open at 1am

we are partners in time

experiencing life together in way that can only be captured partially by any medium

A kaleidoscope of action and emotion driven by a love that seems only to grow with time

he orders us kombucha

i sketch his face in my notebook

we are partners in time

Used to be

we sit side by side crisscross applesauce at the back of the room

i used to be a romantic she says as the smoke curls around her head

dead hearted

hollow chested

echoing words

listening quietly i try not to swat at the smoke

understanding that this feeling that she is feeling just needs time and healing

i join her in her darkness with my tiny light

hold my hand i say

don’t start that goofy holistic shit says my dead hearted friend

this makes me laugh and she half smiles

hand still outstretched

she takes it

tears stream down her face as she ashes into the potted plants

holding hands we sit side by side crisscross applesauce at the back of the room

Governing Body

I take that whole govern yourself accordingly shit seriously.

I know that my present moment responses will directly affect my future…

I move slower than my patience can handle sometimes – but I see the lesson in this too; I am building patience muscle.

My slow movement is so that I can give myself time to think and feel and then move deeper than those thoughts and feelings because inspired action infused with love comes from somewhere deeper- somewhere more in line with who God created us to be.

I know that it will get easier and more automatic to respond from a higher vibration place no matter who or what I encounter.

Mind still

Body still

Spirit move

Govern yourself accordingly Tiffany and remember you are supported.

Connected and protected

Hertz dispelling Hurt

Bathing in a sea of sound

She got lost in the beat

Changing in a way you could never see

Float on

Flow on

Light on

Washed away in the best way

Amplified by this electrical musical ride

The hertz dispelling the hurt

Vibrate on

Vacillate on

Love on

She got found in the beat

Bathing in a sea of sound

Writer’s Note: been swimmin’ in my heart lately – some late spring cleaning – makin’ space for some new shit…laughs

Love is / Love isn’t

I put my mental, physical, spiritual, and financial health first. Unapologetically.

I am honest about what I can and can not handle and I say no to carrying anyone’s burdens or stresses.

This does not make me weak.

When things seem overwhelming I take a moment to check in with God and myself reaching out to my support system if I need to.

I am not perfect by any stretch of the imagination and I release guilt for not always handling things “perfectly”.

I surround myself with unconditional genuine love and I thank God for it.

I have all that need.

Thank you.

The stars and God

He was God sent.

Aware of her imperfections, he could never place her on a pedestal because she was too beautifully human to be pressured with perfection.

Laughing at her mad face he squeezed her anxiety away with a tight hug. She just wanted some quality attention and in spite of her words, he knew her intentions. They showed in her actions.

He reminded her to put herself first and never missed an opportunity to thank her for being herself especially as she quietly cared for others with love in her heart.

She was far from perfect, full of passion, and sometimes not very patient. But he knew what he knew and he felt what he felt; she was God sent too.

Gratitude might fix that Attitude

”You can kick rocks wit’ all them negative thots/thoughts.”

Say the above sentence like an old southern lady.

*Laughs

Gratitude is everything.

What are you grateful for today?

Since the beginning of the year I have been writing seven things that I am grateful for each day. Being grateful is a part of my self-care routine and helps me to maintain a positive attitude.

Below is my gratitude list for today and a link to Auntie O’s thoughts on gratitude.

  1. the ladies in my Barre class
  2. camo leggings
  3. My homie who jammed with me to The Carters – Nice this morning from his car (I like it loud sometimes.)
  4. Baby oil
  5. the ability to hear
  6. Vultures (the underrated clean up crew of nature)
  7. another chance to be here on Earth in this form

Self Portrait #499

I take many self-portraits. My favorite photographer asked me what I was trying to capture here.

What was I trying to capture?

What did I capture?

In this particular moment I had no where to be, no emails to response to, no disputes to settle, no brainstorming sessions- nothing.

I’m thankful for the responsibilities that I have chosen to take on but damn, it feels good to put it on pause for a moment.

I was remembering to just be. The sunshine was out and the breeze was blowing. Freshly washed and styled hair and my makeup free face amplified deep feelings of clear headedness or the clarity of mind I felt… feel.

Clarity – my favorite kind of charity. *Laughs

The abstract pattern the shadows casted on the wall made me think of my own journey. I am identifying and breaking my own patterns of darkness in efforts to make space and further open my heart to the light, creating my own abstracted pattern of varying hues of internal illumination. They need each other, the rays of light and darkness, for contrast and interest.

It’s my responsibility to manage my inner light and I do, with the help of earthly and heavenly guidance. ( Thank y’all kindly. *smiles wide)

What was I trying to capture here?

What did I capture here?

I captured my wholeness in every sense of the verb.

Writer’s Note: I wrote example sentences to each meaning of the word capture- it felt divine and maybe I’ll circle back and share another time. O and yes- Happy Valentine’s Day mothacluckas.

Dear Moon,

My hands are freezing but I do not want to go inside. From your bright light, I can not hide. No need to lie, I love you, we all know it’s true. The way you move through the sky as you do…. oh… girl- I love you. I stutter, stop and stammer as you light up my life. Recharged I feel as I heal. This love – this love is real.

Thank you Lovely Luna.

Love,

A celestial student

Goodbye Robotic Love

F0D04580-2AA4-44BB-AABB-6BD54A5171CA

Robotically she loved you till her circuits were fried

She had tried to love you- to stay true

But for you, she was not built

Can not compute
Can not compute

Sang her rose gold heart

So she had to reboot restart

Her frequencies had changed

Freed from robotic love her rose gold heart sang

True only to her own expansion

It was time to indulge in elevated love of self and everything else

Spirit of Teena

Laying in the bed listening to Teena Marie
Wondering if he is the man for me
How many ways can love set me free?
Girl- you already free said Teena Marie
Free to be you
Focus on what you gotta do
It ain’t him
Don’t be out here on a limb
Free yo’ self
Step up off that shelf
Manifest some wealth
Increase yo’ health
Do you hear me?
You are magic
Yo’ shit ain’t tragic
Beautiful girl
This is yo’ world
Don’t you cry or even sigh
Get up!
We are on yo’ side
Girl- you are already free laughed Teena Marie

Baby Blues, 2016

Mixed media on canvas

I created this during a bout of baby blues to remind myself that my little babies are out there percolating. Until my love and are blessed with our own I will paint for them, pray for them, write to them, and love them. Ain’t no more baby blues.
