Mourn not for things you lost in the nebulous night
for rended hearts,
cracked promises
knocked over dreams spilling into oblivions of gloom.
Mourn not for things Dark Mother has stripped from you
It has burned to ash in the dawning of this  glorious day

You were never meant to navigate upon someone else’s trajectory
You were meant to pull the planets of your own design into an orbit composed and conducted by the fire of your beating heart,
the flame of your eternal spirit
the devouring incandescence of your sex

This is a requiem for the stygian fray
a summoning for the dawning day

This is a requiem for the daming reluctance
a summoning for ever yielding abundance

This is a requiem for the trials of tribulation
a summoning for the harbingers of creation

This is a requiem for the ill gotten stories that turned your mirrored soul to smoke screen
a summoning for the deliciously indecent decadent innocence  of your true self seen

Oh beauteous child of the unknown universe
night will fall again
I promise you
That you
Like the sun
Shall rise

And all that stands in your way shall burn before the before your gaze

Remember  that you are the sun

Now rise and fucking shine.

I just finished teaching the #bawdydivine workshop at #pantheacon2018.

It was so fulfilling to do transformative, creative, cathartic work with people around the Sacred Striptease and Vunerability as Power.

One of the exercises I did called for people to tell me a hurtful story someone told them that they believed. I repeated this atrocious lie to them as they walked towards me to the song "Hate On Me" by Jill Scott.

Their goal was to be so fiercely defiant that they would make me back the fuck up. I told them to give it all they had because I was a little high and had florida water.
They didn't hold back
They were beautiful
They came full force, treading on my feet, glaring.
I saw their teeth and the white of their eyes. They didn't look away.

I got to see them.

As I stepped back I told them the healing thing that was whispered into my heart.
I told them I was wrong.

The people who were witness to this cheered, clapped and uplifted these courageous people.
It was a lot to take on.
It was my privilege to take it on.

And now I'm going to take it off.

Which reminds me. I also got completely naked in the demo. I mean no pasties and no panties naked, like born naked because I totally forgot it at home #stonerbabe

It's intermission here at Dandy.
Mo Boutte just slaughtered "Ain't No Mountain High Enough" and my throat is hoarse from screaming with joy because that song is the feeling of family.
And after the lights came up David squeezed my hand and said that the goal had been met.
And I burst into tears.
I can't thank you all enough
I'm so fucking humbled
I can't stop crying
I'm so grateful
I'm so relieved

The fundraiser said a month
It took that long to convince me
It took you four days.

Thank you for this loving freedom

Two massages and a house blessing later I'm at El Rio watching two people that I absolutely adore @msrubyvixen and @leigh.crow doing their goddamn gorgeous thing while rasing money for children, art and social justice.

I'm surrounded by people that I love.

There is a drink in my hand and a gifted vibrator in my bag to replace the one I ran over with my car a year ago.

I'm really fucking grateful <3

tmw you understand how scientifically terrorizing an event horizon is because you are metaphorically standing on the bridge of an interstellar battle cruiser headed directly for the wormhole beyond... and your friend reminds you that you are made of magic so you smoke a bowl and chill the fuck out

Thank you @dj.rosegold
I love you!!! #myfriendsarewitches

tmw your platonic lyfe partner decides to surprise you with a New Year's Day Trip.

Uses words like -its somewhere we've always wanted to go but never had the time
-gain some perspective -garner insight

So now I'm out here in a graveyard hungry
and without a mason jar for grave dirt because I thought new year's surprise meant going somewhere with mimosas instead of "t"

When he said I couldn't see myself I almost screamed.
When he said I should accept help I almost cried.
When he said that I give so much, accept little in return & ask for nothing I wanted to run away.

I ask for stuff all the time. Anything I give is in gratitude. I give the way I think people should give to each other. I'm only trying to be decent!

I'm dependant on the community booking me as a Healer, Performer, Speaker. I'm grateful that I don't have to work in a job that requires therapy anymore. Every person I touch or sing to is saving my life.

The world isn't decent, he said. Everyone doesn't operate on your morals and you're working yourself to death.

It was like he had thrown ice water into my face. My mind tried to find a way to flip it, recover to retort but the gears had stopped and loosed the reins on my feelings instead

And now in the dark
I'm drowning
So I'm writing
To this demon sitting on my chest telling me that I don't do enough, that I'm selfish and a burden, that I'm broken and unworthy and to blame for all that had happened

What do you want?
What are you trying to protect me from?
Why do you make me feel like a crying child?
Why do you make me feel like a woman sobbing soundlessly next to her sleeping partner?

Suddenly I'm there and here all at once
I can hear my mother's voice saying trust no one.
I can feel my body aching from a cyclical 12 hour work day 2 hours of house work and 45 min sexual assault

The demon tells me
I don't do enough
I'm selfish, a burden, broken, unworthy
to blame for all that had happened
to protect me from the pain of a trust misplaced

I must trust.

So I close my eyes
I imagine the best version of myself
I slip into her skin and her bones become my bones, her flesh warmed by my blood
When we reach for the little girl and the woman it's clumsy. We know this is a temporary thing

I'm still waking up

I pull the crying child into my arms
I pull the sobbing woman into my lap
I look past them to this wretched demon all twisted and charred. My voice flows cold all ice, all water "Fuck off"

And it does.

Last performance of 2017!

It was good to end the busiest month of the busiest year with Curtains Cabaret <3

I'm too tired to wax poetic about the stuff I've learned. But it's been alot and valuable. It's made me take a serious look at what's next and it's made me reevaluate what's possible for me as I continue to perform.

I've started taking singing seriously. I've stopped thinking of my success with it as a fluke. I'm working with a vocal coach, found out I have a 3 octave range and singing/gigging has consistently paid for 1/3 to 1/4 of my monthly expenses... this month it covered half.
Excited to see how far I can go next year.
Excited to see how much I can grow as a singer and a storyteller.

But for now I'm just going enjoy this feeling of a year well done. I'm going to roll around in it a little.
But not too much,
I don't want to fuck up this hair.
