history of repeating divide and conquer can’t stop–

because the need for the strategy will not go away.

it won’t work; doesn’t succeed in its goals–

2

because we keep sticking together,

3

connecting, coalitioning.

we rise up with irascible constancy and love,

even under the thumb.

adult playground – in photos

child’s playground – in words

both true.

how to make chalk hand-prints (best results when 6 – 8-yrs-old):

DSCN5255

get a friend to trace around your body sprawled on the asphalt/ground with chalk

DSCN5254

spend long time deliberately skrushing in various solid colors with huge sidewalk chalks; for clothing, hair, accoutrements, and skin of your silhouetted image [could take 20-40 minutes]

DSCN5270

lightly pat your open palms onto chalk colored self-portrait a couple three times

c

place hands firmly in an unchalked spot on the asphalt

DSCN5274

leap up into a handstand – after a breath, plant feet again earthward one at a time and stand tall [takes 1-2 seconds]

DSCN5269

there they are. bright colored hand-prints clear and detectable for all passers-by

i… i just. want…

imma be selfish for a min… for a time.

i want you to be free.

i want you to revel and reckon with these vids. they might not / might meet you where you are. may they be a balm for these times.

the longer vid speaks to me more directly than anything i’ve seen in these months – regarding maintaining my health, engaging social justice, and contemplating dharma and yoga.

long vid worth the time! this video is e.v.e.r.y.thing.

shorter vid setting up the longer one

and for good measure:

…it is selfish bias that i hope these morsels benefit you, that i shove meanings from furthest dark materials to deepest within, from my heartmindformspace to yours…

with love,
