Congratulations to my dear Mentor, Inspiration, Friend and Guide Wayne Shorter for being a 2019 Kennedy Center Honoree!!! ...I love this glorious being from a depth beyond what words can express, and would not exist as the creator I am (and person I am!) without the profound and directly nourishing work of our Maestro Wayne!

birthdays are the best...

Brooklyn, New York

the twelfth spell: For hearing in historical accounts, casual exchanges, news reports, songs, poems, poor-english, recovery testimony, threats, denials, intellectual oration, convictions, prayers, rejections, demands, cries, laughter and silence, all the terrifying vulnerability and singly transformative force of the human capacity for loving others.

Brooklyn, New York

the eleventh spell: For remembering the perfected animal buried in the cultural programs of thought processes, belief systems, and thought-based searching.  Expels the tyrants of hamster-ball concern loops or stimulation loops imposing themselves on our minds via smartphones, Youtube, google and social media.  Triggers the memory of grace, and whets the sensory appetite for intra-personal regard, and Self-cultivated esteem.

... day 10, casting spells for the legs in action...and in Boston supporting the first monument to Dr. King in Boston... that’s magic...! ---------------------------------------------------- Full vid up now on IGTV/ link in bio #12littlespells

Boston, Massachusetts

the tenth spell: For recognizing progress one has made, but doesn’t feel. Affirms that every step taken has added up to the present point, and that effort exerted is forever contained in the memory of the legs. enables the forward leaning mind to listen to the legs when the legs offer guidance-from their memory mappings of distance traveled- by recalling each step taken thus far. ---------------------------------------------------- Full vid up now on IGTV/ link in bio #12littlespells

...day 8, spell 8...all limbs are...letting love branch out from me...I’d choose that to be my super hero power...:)

Brooklyn, New York

the ninth spell: For relieving the loneliness and disorientation felt from the absence of fathers. To experience the connection to lineage trees growing through one’s limbs, and experience the presence of masculine support and expansion through one’s own arm bones. ---------------------------------------------------- Full vid up now on IGTV/ link in bio #12littlespells
