Conceivably, It Is What It Seems

Posted in art, artists, beauty, california, new york, plants, relationships, san francisco by the consummate on March 2, 2012

Yes, you were correct my dear. He was a manipulative asshole. As soon as I could tell him in person to fuck off, I did.  You would have been proud. I’m just sorry it took me so long to make that realization on my own.

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”

– Swami Satchidananda

Bleeding Heart

Posted in beauty, health, life, love, neighborhood, new york, plants, relationships, san francisco, spirituality, WTF by the consummate on April 5, 2011

The Bleeding Heart flower is very special to me. During one of the most difficult periods of my life I grew a special connection with her. I started taking the flower essence at the suggestion of  a spiritual advisor but soon discovered a family of Bleeding Hearts lived on the path of the 22nd Street stairs. Anytime I would run or walk up  and down the stairs I would be greeted by them. I don’t believe in coincidences but only the universe confirming your direction.

Bleeding heart is a well tested flower essence and has been shown to release painful emotional attachments and heartaches from ended relationships. This might be the result of a breakup, a death, someone moving away, or getting a new job, or a tragedy with a pet. All of these incidents separate the person from their heart’s desire. Bleeding Heart flower essence helps mend the heart almost immediately, as if the person that was involved in the heart ache genteelly released their hold on it.

More on Bleeding Heart flower essence here.

PS: I’m starting to take her again today.

I’ve Found A New Religion

Posted in art, artists, california, health, life, music, neighborhood, san francisco, spirituality, yoga by the consummate on October 15, 2009

i’ve found a new religion
every morn a new mantra
it’s not that now i don’t believe
everything i’m told or read
overheard and over said
i’m just not listening

try to change the weather
like time magazine
did you read?
chairman mao is a robber baron now
rolling over in his grave

i’ve found a new religion
every day (every day)
i’ve found a new religion
every day

i’ve got a new image
got a new outlook
and it’s decidedly sexy
but then again i can’t be satisfied
and broken hearts are counterrevolutionary

are you feeling cooped up
like allende?
see i ain’t
gonna pull my hair out anymore
for a new cold war

i’ve found a new religion
every day (every day)

i’ve found a new religion
every day (every day)

Si Una Vez

Posted in art, artists, experimental video, life, music, san francisco, WTF by the consummate on August 30, 2009

I love Selena. Selena represents so much hope and cross over. Ah what a beauty.

Here she is performing Si Una Vez – notice the way she moves and communicates. What a performer.

My friend Holly, pictured below, dressed up as Selena one Halloween. I was floored and impressed. Kinda bummed I didn’t think of it before but really, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery (alluding to possible Selena costume this year).

Speaking of imitation being the sincerest form of flattery, check out this version of Si Una Vez.

In My Room – Best Coast

When I grow up, get married, pop out a babelah & all that jazz, I want to have my own private room. It will be ALL MINE and possibly look something like this –

And I’ll play tunes like this Flat Duo Jets‘ jam (My Life, My Love)

& X’s Under the Big Black Sun

And, I’m going to lounge around in a halter & hot pants wearing shoes like these “hollywood stiletto heels” while reading the yoga sutras.

PS: you’ll have to have a secret password to get through the door.

Oh my city…I’m leaving you for a little bit. You are newly adopted. But you captivated my heart. You healed me, you gave me a life when I no longer knew what that meant. I love you.
