It’s going to be Great in “08”!

Obama for President …

Today I had the opportunity to meet other US citizens who are just as excited and feel just as good as I do about this current election!

Sure there is a lot of crap out there that we have to deal with – the news, the gossip, the choice for vice president however, one of my ideas is … We got to look past at the crap ass bs and find ways to ENJOY our lives thus creating more positive energy thus allowing YOUR Magic Passion Love to shine which means you feel good and when you shared – WOW!

So that’s what happened today when I went to Philadelphia with a group of New Yorkers including a friend on a BOLT BUS to help register voters in North Philadelphia.
I found out about this thru an old neighbor and he was Sharing his excitement about his upcoming trip to PA to help Obama and then a few days later, a Facebook message confirmed he was so happy he did it and was planning on doing it again if possible.

It was because he shared his experience that reminded me that I wanted to find the time to do this so I began to some research – take a little action to find out who to contact – it’s quite easy … go to BROOKLYN for OBAMA
What was going to happen? Would we be able to leave earlier than the others? Where would be? Who would be talking to? How ?

Releasing the need to know the outcome – we focused on taking action on what we wanted to do that would make us feel good about this UPCOMING ELECTION… let’s ENJOY the fact we have an election – – take action to create the OUTCOME we wish to create – President-Elect Obama!!

So for a few hours we shared info and ideas with so many others who are voting for Obama, getting their friends/family to vote and registering to vote! Including the bartender who served us our lunch!

It was so easy to do this because this felt good in our souls to campaign for Barack Obama … and its an opportunity to connect ot other people who feel the same way. It’s the organizing of communities to take back our country – our power! It’s time!!

The revolution has begun … it truly has!!

dead bunnies & butterflies …

I feel very worthy these days for all of the things happening to me. I am allowing the gifts of the universe into my life. I’m amazed and thrilled.

Working on allowing the butterflies and dead bunnies to co-exist within my soul.

The butterflies give me flight and the dead bunnies – well, they just are a part of me.

They are never going to go away. Instead of wasting my time trying to kill them, hide them, chase them away – I am allowing them to just be. Just because my life has dead bunnies doesn’t make me ugly.

I have beautiful butterfly wings.

…what we have to do must be done in the now.

Audre Geraldine Lorde (February 18, 1934 – November 17, 1992) was an American writer, poet and activist.

It’s very exciting and feels good!


It has been a dream of mine to hang my art work in a space where people can come and view it. Just like the dream of moving to NYC happened – – My dream to exhibit my work is a reality!

Here is a photo take of me under my painting entitled “HA!” – at Lolita bar, the day we hung the work.

Dreams do come true …if you don’t stop believing!

To laugh is to risk appearing the fool.
To weep is to risk appearing sentimental.
To reach out to others is to risk involvement.
To expose feelings is to risk exposing your true self.
To place your ideas, your dreams before a crowd is to risk their loss.
To love is to risk not being loved in return.
To live is to risk dying.
To hope is to risk despair.
To try is to risk failure.

But risks must be taken,
because the greatest hazard in life is to do nothing.

The person who risks nothing,
does nothing, has nothing, and is nothing.

They may avoid suffering and sorrow,
but they cannot learn, feel, change, grow, love, live.

Chained by their attitudes, they are a slave,
they forfeited their freedom.

Only the person who risks can be free

Trickydame paints in Paris!

It was a beautiful Summer Day in the center of Paris … and I had the opportunity to paint! Quite excited to be just a few blocks away from the Louvre!

Per my previous posts – I was in Paris because I’m a believer of HUMAN RIGHTS for ALL! I was also there because I wanted to experience Paris – first time there and most definitely not my LAST!

I spent a few days enjoying my life as an artist who lives her life with Magic Passion Love.

Its all about enjoying your life on your own terms and I’m grateful I do!
