i'm pretty much outraged at this whole Israel gaza strip food ship (aide) thing. what angers me is that, the gaza strip is not being given a fair chance to heal from the wounds of war. school are not being rebuilt. aide is being blocked. 80% of people in gaza live below the poverty line.

a friend of mine and I were talking this morning on the phone about it. and I compared it oddly ( and by all means not a perfect comparison ) to the tonya harding nancy kerrigan incident. Its like right when the food is coming in bam ! Israel slams the ship killing people causing drama and keeping nourishment away from the people who need it most. I just adore Queen Rania of Jordan she is an embodiment of the true spirit of Islam. She was tweeting facts about gaza and i retweeted them on my page if you care to have a look see. All very relevant and important to the struggle the fight the push for peace.

so now i guess i do get what M.I.A. was saying about the Lynn Hirschberg interview in the new york times magazine. She was
trying to talk about freedom and the atrocities the Sri Lankan people have suffered when NYT only cared about truffle fries. The truth is they were both doing their jobs and however inappropriate her reaction was to the article i get it i get what maya angry about. But i get what NYT was writing about as well.

what i am saying to people who care including myself in a blogistan (pep talk) is that if you do care, well then it is up to you to keep caring keep spreading the facts the truth the information as it is revealed to you. keep speaking your mind. keep pushing for peace, keep exposing injustice.... though may i suggest that one does it with grace with style with dignity and with panache.

a bientot. mes amis.
thank you for being here.


p.s. great show at the strange gallery this weekend. More shows in LA this summer
check for dates posted.

Catherine Deneuve is amazing.

popping my hiking cherry.

the pier 212 gig was amazing
maybe my voice is getting stronger ? feels good. regardless.
i played a song called ' all i ever wanted ' which incidentally i have never shared in a public space.
i imagine that is what a bird feels like when it leaves its nest after being there for a while.
or what a fish feels like when it ventures away from the school
a wolfs sentiment when it leaves the pack to become lone.

in a way a return to self via escapism

in honor of my LA hiking cherry being popped today ....
une poeme.

Apres - Lui.

apres lui
il n'y a pas rien.
i feel like watching my old flame
over over just to see her mistakes
just to feel his wake on my skin
to witness the dust fall gently
across my shades the ones
with the bent
the ones that used to be brand
new .
there were boys and i dont regret whispering
my sweet nothings at them
there were girls and i'll never forget what any of them
were wearing
but i can't remember the day of the week
or the episode that i loved so much
the one where they eat cheesecake
and go over memories.
short term mine is.
long term love affair
with ways to say thank you.
i will never be fully satisfied
with just one.
i will never be fully satisfied until i hear you tell
your fix it
but i've gone mute,
i've gone mute
and theres no turning back
