If you haven’t read Part One, don’t worry you won’t have to. I ask myself what is sacred often, not consciously but more often than I should. I believe that the rains that fall in Southern California are sacred, when they do fall. I believe that every parent should treat their child as if they were sacred, and not just when they are born. I … Continue reading Do You Ever Ask Yourself, What is Sacred? Part 2

Dear Aquarius if last year was very difficult and feels difficult now, it was do to your indecision, so you only have yourself to blame. You chose small pleasures instead of grand ones, you vacillated between what would be good in the moment and what you wanted right now. If you haven’t begun to chose a higher form of pleasure, meaning something that not only … Continue reading Aquarius Your Year Ahead 2023-2024
We live and exist in a time of Self-Proclaimed Gurus, Shamans, and Saints. Don’t get me wrong they have always existed as have Charlatans, and often they are/were one and the same. They, the Self Proclaimed/Charlatans have used the desire of other’s for the sacred to “enhance” themselves. To tell you that the sacred has always been there and to tell you that you need … Continue reading Do You Ever Ask Yourself, What is Sacred? Part 1
As of late if you look on Social Media there are a lot of “Gen-X’ers” claiming accolades, for lack of a better word, about how they raised themselves. Of which for the most part and for many of us was true. Gen-X is considered to be the generation born from 1965-1980, many of us were latch key kids, raised on television by navel gazing Boomers … Continue reading Gen X, The Republican Party, and No Vaseline.

However the Deception that we are seeing now in the American body politic, especially on the right is not the Sympathy for … Continue reading Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Sun Tzu: The Art of 21st Century Political War.
I’m not sure how much Sun Tzu Kevin McCarthy has read nor do I know how much of The Jerry Springer Show he has watched, if he hasn’t done either then he should do both. One, to show him the pitfalls of his political strategy or lack thereof. The other to show him the spectacle of political fighting that he’s about to experience, not between … Continue reading Kevin McCarthy: The Jerry Springer of the House G.O.P. vs. Sun Tzu & The Art of War
Today as I write this post, is the two year anniversary of the attack on the Capitol by MAGA’s finest, January 6th, 2021. Until recently I was still amazed at the stupidity and absurdity of it all, and confounded by the continuation of the conspiracies and lies that still fuel and put a fire under those who believe that the election was stolen from Donald … Continue reading The Performance Art of January 6th, 2021 and the Price We’ll Continue to Pay
by Celeste Featherstone Dear Capricorn, last year seemed to be more about your family than yourself for so many reasons, especially due to your penchant for filial piety, and when we use that term it doesn’t just mean your obligations too your parents, it can also mean your obligation to the elders of extended family, even an obligation to your ancestors. So some of your … Continue reading Capricorn Your Year Ahead 2023
I was recently scrolling through FaceBook the other day and I came across a remembrance of a High School friend, one who I had not known had passed. I couldn’t believe it, so I reached out to find out how he had passed, he was one of the first people to buy one of my paintings, and I was so grateful at the time, I … Continue reading A Black Man in Pain, I Am One Of Many.
