I Love My Daddy

Grateful to be in California, so happy I can spend this time with my pops. No matter what and where I am or with whom, I am and will always be daddy’s little girl.

The Beja Flor Age

Posted in animals, art, beauty, Feminism, health, judaism, life, love, relationships, sex, spirituality, subculture, travel, WTF, yoga by the consummate on November 16, 2012

I yearn for the day we live in the realm of the hummingbird. I want to be free from my mind and free from my ego. Although I have evolved so much over the last year, I pray that I can overcome and evolve even more.

I should probably write more often.

The War We Really Wage (From Harish)

Posted in art, artists, family, Feminism, friendship, health, life, love, spirituality, subculture, WTF, yoga by the consummate on March 21, 2012

“Practitioners who train in courage become true warriors. The war we wage is not with enemies outside ourselves but with the powerful forces of our own habitual tendencies and negative emotions. The greatest of these is fear. In order to become fearless, we need to experience fear. Facing fear changes our perspective and gives rise to the courage to face our neuroses as well as our enlightened qualities.”

 – Dzigar Kongtrul

The Heart Will Win

“The heart should play an important role, not only in married life, but in all of our relationships: with friends, relatives, business associates, and even strangers. Even if the other person uses the head, you should use more heart. Remember, ultimately the heart will win; it might take time but it will win. If you really want to use your heart, you will be guided in that direction. God’s guidance will be there. Pray more and trust in that higher force.

Om Shanthi, Shanthi, Shanthi”

Intern Duties

Posted in animals, art, artists, beauty, california, Feminism, friendship, health, humor, life, love, relationships, subculture, WTF by the consummate on November 7, 2011

My intern, in her tiger costume, dutifully walked my dog, in his devil costume, on Halloween. I was too busy at work being a dead revolutionary to walk him but not busy enough to take the picture and discover this was my intern’s first dog walking experience, ever. Glad I could contribute to a first.

Class Warfare

Posted in art, artists, Feminism, health, life, music, subculture by the consummate on September 22, 2011

What the Fuck? – Crass

“You built a factory out there? Good for you. But I want to be clear: you moved your goods to market on the roads the rest of us paid for; you hired workers the rest of us paid to educate; you were safe in your factory because of police forces and fire forces that the rest of us paid for. You didn’t have to worry that marauding bands would come and seize everything at your factory, and hire someone to protect against this, because of the work the rest of us did.

“Now look, you built a factory and it turned into something terrific, or a great idea? God bless. Keep a big hunk of it. But part of the underlying social contract is you take a hunk of that and pay forward for the next kid who comes along.”

– Elizabeth Warren on claims the Democrats are participating in “class warfare”

Lady Don’t Tek No – Latryx

After months of putting it off, I finally went to the gynecologist today. I must say that I’ve certainly had plenty of strange experiences in my life – but not particularly when it comes to the gyno. Sure, I’ve been a starving creative in New York and spent some time at the Margaret Sanger Center at Planned Parenthood on Bleecker Street. There you found women like me, too poor to attain health insurance but not poor enough to be considered poor. Does this strike you to be familiar Americans?

Nevertheless, I hold dual citizenship in the US & in Hungary. Clever me, believed I could obtain free medical care while in Hungary, one of the reasons I scheduled an appointment to see the doctor here. In Eastern Europe. Yes. I am crazy. (more…)

Camus Quote

Posted in art, artists, beauty, Feminism, friendship, health, humor, life, love, music, new york, oldies, relationships, Uncategorized, vacation, WTF, yoga by the consummate on May 27, 2011

Camus and his existential thought patterns. His simplistic language has always captured me. I first read L’Étranger when I was about 14 years old, Robert Smith was my dream lover and The Cure’s KILLING AN ARAB inspired me to pick up the book. As an impressionable teen I felt akin to the narrator, Meursault’s, dilemma – not being able to fit in to the contradictory and oppressive rules of society. The outsider looking in – that is me. Things could be ever so simple if I agreed to follow the rules but alas, my wild heart cannot be tamed. The personal musings of my blog reflect my emotional and mental state at moments, but what I’d like to remind you readers is that however I am feeling, know, that I am stronger than I lead on to be and that I have begun to love myself more than my tendency to punish myself.

C’est Cauchemar

I have dreams with a recurring theme – they are all about me + you. I wish they would stop and we could talk. So get out of my dreams and into my car. Oh wait, I don’t have a car but you understand what I mean right?

Bossy

Posted in art, artists, beauty, Feminism, health, humor, life, love, relationships, subculture, yoga by the consummate on May 14, 2011

Yes, I know I am bossy. I’m working on being less aggressive with my “bossyness” but it’s hard being a woman with a brain who knows what she wants, the way she wants it and when she wants it. When you’re a feminist like me who grew up in a patriarchal culture, the sticks of California, where Jesus reigns & women are expected to submit to the will of men (especially the stupid ones) you feel so much resistance within. Have you ever seen those episodes of The Real Housewives of Orange County? Those women can’t even fucking take out a tampon without their husbands on top of them. This is a common practice in 2011? Can a lady get some time to take a shit, alone?

The lifetime of hearing my Eastern European mother sternly tell me “never let a man control you” doesn’t really add to my bossy situation. Add the nearly 10 years of living in New York City & working in my FORMER profession (selling salt to snails) doesn’t help. My “bossyness” is a knee jerk reaction and kind of like an over compensation for what I’ve experienced and still experience. So listen people, I’m trying hard here. Believe me.  It’s been over 30 years of living and things don’t change over night. So tranquilo.

Speaking of bossy, I’m currently reading BOSSYPANTS by Tina Fey. HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT!!!

PS: Am I being bossy?

The Long Road

Posted in artists, beauty, Feminism, health, life, love, new york, oldies, relationships, sex, spirituality, subculture, WTF, yoga by the consummate on May 9, 2011

It’s a long journey. I go in and out of different moods. Mostly, I am trying to overcome the pain of losing you. I’ve spent too much time in sheer anguish that the anger, albeit it’s ugliness, is welcome. I, unlike you, have not dedicated myself to the eradication of your existence in my life. I love and cherish you. There are so many words I want to say to you. So many things I want to explain. Perhaps in time.
