We are sound waves

It's the ripple effect.
What you think,
you create in the ripple.
What you want will be yours.
Set your intentions.
Manifest your desires,
bury them in your bones.
Dance the dance
sing the song.
We are sounds waves.
Feed the wave

How bout this Iris Van Herpen

Solo SF Trip to the Marina Fini Art Show

I attended my first Marina Fini art exhibit!!!
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.

† My Iridescent Palm Trees †
Marina hooked me up with a pair of her infamous plexi earrings!  
Since she didnt have any Palm Trees earrings in iridescent already made, she found two matching pairs and turned them into earrings ( I filmed her working her magic in the last Insta Vid).
Total sweetheart.
Here are images of her work 
(These are not my photos, these are from Google Image Search) 
Pictured above is her Motelscapes
exhibit at ARTBasel Miami 2015
(I wanted to sell my soul to attend the show, Gaawwd!)
I love me some Miley Cyrus.  Rocking the infamous Mushroom Plexi earrings. 
Baddie Winkle being a Bad Ass!
I wish I could afford her custom door beads.
Seeing them in person is crazy, very meticulous and time consuming.  Thats why these babies are a pretty penny.
Marina told me, her and Baddie are close friends. I wish I could hug Baddie, she's my IDOL! HA!

If you are in the San Francisco Area, Heron Arts 
has this show open

It's a thin line

Has anyone ever tried to emulate your life?
Would you feel flattered?
Would you feel agitated?
Would you feel harassed?
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.
Forward! March!!

Road Trippin'

Time to get LOST!!
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
Click (here)

Caples Lake was off the charts!
 All I gotta say, is I wanna road trip back to all these spots and reserve a room in Sonora and a room in Murphy's. Im cool with Reno. AAhaha!

P.S. eL Dorado National Forest is pretty sick too

Life. Oh. Life.
