I keeps resurfacing, and throwing itself it front of my face. And every time it crosses my path, I watch it in its entirely. It rings true. I have rid myself from "most" of the energy suckers. And I have noticed a big difference in my life. I'm happier, but I have a few more strings that I need to cut. I'm a work in progress. So Im posting this as a reminder of where I am today.
And this video below, is what I came across trying to search for the one above. Haa!!
W☆W November!!! Sad to see you go. You filled my Big Heart. Something else dawned on me though, I put some thoughts into the universe last night. I'll try to speak to you in dreams. Crossed Paths will intertwine in time. Ya hear?
I've never traveled out of the US, and I'm traveling alone(I'm kinda scared).
I'm meeting my son who serves in the Navy. His base is in Yokosuka (35 miles south of Tokyo). I'll be staying in Yokohama(30min train to Tokyo) for 10 days. I already started a Must-See List. I literally have been dancing all morning out of excitement.
Look at that face!!
Today I'm 37 YOUNG!!
I feel great and everything has been finely tuned.
Can I just say that I attended the fucking coolest art show ever!!??
Last Friday I attended the HolloWolfBat Art Show at Heron Arts, San Francisco
So now that my super power has been exposed, I shall
The media has spewed a lot of negative realities. I could waste space and dig deep and discuss, but why?? It saddens my heart. And I've had enough of that shit.
This past Sunday I saw something beautiful.
After leaving the liquor store, there was a mentally ill(possibly homeless) man sitting on the sidewalk. I gazed at him to see if he was ok because he was trembling a bit. But i was too scared to get close, so I continued on and got into the car. As I was chit chatting with Dre, I noticed a young Hispanic boy, about 10 years old handing the man two individually wrapped sandwiches and a bottled water. My window was down, and they were only a few feet away and I said, "look Dre! How cute, that little boy just gave that man food, a homemade sandwich. He gave him two! What a sweet kid, what a nice young man" The little boy looked up at me and smiled, they both smiled. As the little boy walked away and the man devoured his sandwich, I noticed the stiff demeanor of the little boy's walk. I had embarrassed him possibly? I didn't mean too. Watching him stiffly walk away to his apartment complex, I just started bawling my eyeballs out.
That moment made me realize, there is still kindness and compassion in this world.
We are in control of how we perceive life.
Perhaps to someone else, that was just a kid talking to a dirty crazy man.
Not to me.
The media may be poisoning our brains with all this negative energy, and it sucks. But the world is still beautiful, and everyday we should do something kind for someone. Because this love will spread. And Love is what the world needs right now.

When I used to sing Karaoke, Tom Petty was my go-to. Mary Jane's Last Dance and Free Falling. Those were my SONGS!!
I had a greyhound at The 500 Club in SF this past Sunday. I was reminiscing to the days they would do karaoke on Sundays at 5pm. I made my debut with Free Falling. It was rad, I grabbed some random chick to sing with me and everyone else sang along. Good Times. May you rest in peace Tom Petty!! You're Free!

A couple weeks back
my friend Amy and I went to the Museum of Ice Cream.
I took a gazillion pictures, but I'm not going to flood this post.
You get the picture, no pun intented.
(I sing Cherry Baby instead of Sherry)
My childhood dreams finally came true.
eating a miniature ice cream cone whilst straddling a Unicorn.
I was bummed I couldn't attend Opening Night, so I dragged my ass to SF this past Wednesday.
I had the whole place to myself. I arrived right when they opened, that's the secret.
Walking through this show brought back some memories of my old Rave Nights in SF circa 1994 (I was a little 13 year old tenderoni)
Plus, I got to meet Marina, she welcomed me with a hug. Pretty Rad!
She cruised me around the exhibit giving me a little dose of what inspired her to create some of her pieces.
I was so overwhelmed by the exhibit( I walked through it like 5 times), I didn't snap any photos, I just took two Instagram Vids.
Well, this is what I've been dealing with for almost two decades.
I shrugged it off as flattery at first. Then I became irritated.
This isn't just a case of, after you hang out with someone for awhile you start to dress the same and talk the same. This happened to me immediately. This person did a total 180 in style, slang, music interest, dance moves, leisurely activities and hangout locations. This behavior is still going strong to this day. I've tried distancing myself, not speaking of ideas and trying to remain humble. It didnt work. Thanks Social Media. So, this madness continues.
Where does one draw the line?
This is not cool on so many levels.
Why must I involve this person in my life?
Due to certain circumstances, I "had" to remain cordial and associate.
I've tried wrapping my head around this whole ordeal and I just cant.
I told myself this is petty, who cares. I'm not the only one who is into this that or the other. It's a free world!
I should be flattered!
I'm not going to dive into specifics, but the manner in which this mimicking behavior has went down, it's clearly abusive behavior. This is beyond someone being inspired, it's antagonizing.
Fast Forward to today!
The magical universe has recently removed this person out of my life. Unfortunately, this behavior has a deeper underlying issue that I no longer need to be part of. This behavior will continue, except its not pushed in my face and I don't need to see this human.
My next step to clarity, is finishing this blog entry (because this is therapy) and leaving all this madness in the past.
Went on a short but sweet road trip to Reno!
We cruised through some killer towns!!
Grass Valley, Historic Auburn, Truckee, Carson City, Sonora, Angels Camp, Jamestown to name a few!
We had thee best pizza at Pete's Pizza & Tap House
Tahoe National Forest was insanely beautiful
Reno was a trip! I havent been since 2002, and its still the same. Kinda cheesy, old school but still pretty cool. We had steak and lobster, played some slot machines, got a free upgrade to a King Suite. We didnt want to stay another night so we hit the high road!
Had to make a stop in Carson City at The Bunny Ranch to get some souvenirs. Boy was that place a trip too! I guess a few days prior, some tweaker dude stole a Big Rig and at 4am, smashed it into the facade of the Bunny Rand and jumped out in full camo gear?? ahahahahah!! Read the whole crazy story (here)
Along the way there was so much beauty, we actually stopped a few times but this was one of the best stops. Check out my Instagram Vid. You know I had my feet all up in that river
