Reflecting a bit today on an artist who truly honored the Native American tribes. BIG LOVE to the late Susan Seddon Boulet for your inspiration and soulful work that will forever reflect the strength, beauty, and magic of the indigenous tribes that were so brutally massacred... Who still stand strong in the the face of the corporate darkness & militarized police mobs at this moment.

"These are your heroes, your American Snipers and Captain Americas in all their syphilitic charm. This is your oblivious entertainment and the parade of your own lack of imagination. This is the girl on the back of your motorcycle, your cardboard sexy. This is the bulllol you worship.
How far gone you must be. How lost in your own fantasy and privilege. How determined you must be to maintain your bubble. How unaware of your place on this planet, in this climate, of your voice and power (lived not assumed) must you be to have voted for your own lack of conscience?
We who are not immune to your nasal vocal fry, who hear your raised voice and bombshell laughter, who recognize the twang of your guitar and robotic twist of hip are very clear on what we're seeing. The profane mascot on your cap and shirt, rather than remove and burn, you have chosen to present to the world as a mask. You have elected a caricatured mascot. A totem to your ignorance.
Here is the proof of the internal battles you have not fought, the lines of credit you have not questioned and never intended to pay back. The thin man you saw in the forest. The clown that kept popping up in the shadows. The chair that rocks that no one is sitting in. This is your haunted house built over our graveyard. The car that won't start. The murderous ski mask. This is your cop drama, your cowboy fantasy, your bed sheet cape and plastic boots. Your fears, fantasies and entertainment all wrapped into one high-strung effigy whose burning fire you will not be able to contain.
You have proven your enemies right."

Reflecting a bit on a much needed Colorado summer recharge. So many beautiful moments appreciating the mountain vibez, my health, my family, old friends, new friends, and røamin' the open road for a while. Much gratitude for all of your support!
What if every life is born of death
the same way dreams are born in sleep
And what if everything is nothing
and that's everything
it's all just a reflection
and each action makes a ripple
that goes on in all directions
through the ages
like a wrinkle
A great big sea of possibility
in an ocean made of time
there are no dividing lines
