Bill's Turn at Metamorphosis




While living in NYC I always saw Mr. Cunningham either pedaling away on his bike, or snapping away with his camera. Up until his recent passing I was a devoted fan of his column and videos in the Times. Mr. Cunningham was truly a member of the NYC community and of humanity.

My favorite memory of him is back in the summer of 1988 or 89. I was hanging out with Willi Ninja and the rest of the house in Washington Square Park. We were holding court by the fountain. And, of course the music was pumping from a radio and the House of Ninja was voguing for points. Mr. Cunningham jumped off his bike and our little moment turned into a photo shoot. Willi looked at one of his "children" and said, "Turn it out. He's Bill Cunningham from the New York Times. Gurl you will be in the newspaper."

I admire him for living a life dedicated to following his passion. Another legend has passed. My but the world is changing.

Say Their Names

I have been somewhere in between numb and shock in regards to the mass killing in Orlando. Several days ago this poured out from me onto my facebook page. I am now sharing it here.

Every human comes with gifts to share with the world. Every human given love and guidance can learn how to share his or her gifts with the world. We all can testify about our own moments of having the experience of receiving the gifts of another, in our own life's journey, proves this belief to be true.

With the pull of a trigger, humans moving with hate and misguidance, can purchase weapons designed for war and easily wipe away the souls sent by the divine. We continue to lose beautiful spirits embodied within flesh, because fearful souls feel the need to possess the weapons that can kill instantly when they are angry, scared, confused or lost.

Mass killings are becoming the new abnormal. And, don't get it twisted, gun violence is out of control. Look at what is happening in Chicago. To those that believe that current gun laws, especially regarding semi-automatic guns are sane you are stuck in wanting to be right, rather then doing what is right. Many countries that have faced the horror of mass killing and gun violence are getting it right. Australia has not had a mass killing since 1996! Why? Australia changed their laws about gun possession . Google it!

Sadly, we continue to lose our sense of safety. We also continue to lose the beautiful spirits that were sent to aid our shared humanity. Take a look at what we have lost. Click Here

Happy Birthday Marcos


Not a day goes by that I don't think about Marcos. He passed on a little over five years ago. I have reached that place where I am at peace with knowing a part of his spirit is always with me, and that his influence continues to guide me. 

Today, would have been his 56th birthday. In celebration I decided to send him flowers!

Prince's Turn at Metamorphosis




 I think I will honor his legacy by sharing what his music and persona meant to me.

  • The first time I heard Little Red Corvette I gasped because I truly thought I was listening to grown folks have sex in a car. 
  • The song Controversy turned me out as a little boy. I couldn't believe this man on the radio was singing about people wondering if he is black or white, straight or gay. And, all he wanted was to be free of the bullshit. 
  • When Purple Rain came out, I went to go see it with my cousin. We caught the first showing at around 11:30 am, we didn't leave the theater till after 5:00 pm. We kept watching it over, and over again. 
  • I would try to dissect the sounds swirling in my headphones as I listened to his music. The layers of genius left me mesmerized.
  • While I was never a big fan of his fashion, I applauded the fact that he turned it out the way he wanted to turn it out. The brother was bold!
Thank you Prince. Your music still transfixes me no matter how many times I hear it. You have lived to see many dawns. I suppose right about now you are meeting up with Vanity and the two of you are going to smoke a peace pipe. Travel on!

Music Is My Medicine



So here is music that has been transporting my spirit into those virtual spaces where I can heal, rejuvenate, and embrace being here.


I always enjoy Miguel's voice. Very cool to have that voice thrive in a lush soundscape.


Not something new, but worth revisiting. This song is so tight lyrically, it makes me wanna put on some copious amounts of black eyeliner, tight jeans, and go buy a 40 oz.


Makes me think about all the benevolent spirits that brush by my side to say hello.


Sit back, prepare, you are about to go on a sonic journey. Sublime!


Ms. Rene turned me onto her awhile back. I keep coming back for more. A true talent!

My New Reoccuring Day Dream

Viktor & Rolf continue to play with this high fashion as soft sculpture idea. If you recall in a previous post about this divine duo, I shared a video of their 2015 couture show. It was genius. Click here to revisit the fantasy

Well, the two designers are being a bit more ethereal about the sculpture, and have softened it up. Get into the drama. I love the choir singing Creep by Radiohead. Everything came together and made quite the fashion moment. 

I now want to wear all white for the entire summer.
