Today is my dread babies' three week birthday! I'm so excited! I made a headband to celebrate the occasion! Let me know what you think of my handy-work. Still having a bit of problems with dreading in the back, but I'm just leaving it be for now.Enjoy!
On March 11 a new documentary was aired on French television - a documentary that Americans wont ever see. The gigantic bio-tech corporation Monsanto is threatening to destroy the agricultural biodiversity which has served mankind for thousands of years.

I am in a really bad situation at home. I am trying my best to get out of this. Everything I'm trying to do to better myself is blocked my my asshole father. There is so much tension between us it's not even funny. This all began about 6 weeks ago when my mom was admitted to the hospital for surgery. She is back now after 6 weeks. Anyway...my question is: If I make it to Cali with my daughter somehow...where do we go to find rainbow family that would allow us a place to stay for a few? I am to the point of desperation on getting us out. I don't have wheels...that is the scariest part for me. So I would hopefully get us a couple bus tickets or even possibly find a ride on rideshare. I just don't want to get all the way to the other side of the country and be on the streets with all the tweekers. If anyone has any input please do share. I am desperate. My spirit can't take the verbal abuse from my father...or my mental state. If I was alone it would not be so scary...but I have a 5 yr. old I have to protect and look out for. Thanks for reading. I'm just freaking beside myslef at the moment. I hope it's ok that I wrote this here on this forum. Namaste`

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.It is our Light, not our Darkness, that most frightens us.We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?Actually, who are you NOT to be? You are a child of God.Your playing small does not serve the world.There is nothing enlightening about shrinking so that other people won'tfeel unsure around you.We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.It is not just in some of us; it is in everyone.As we let our own Light shine, we unconsciously give other peoplepermission to do the same.As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automaticallyliberates others.By Marianna Williamson

So the other day (Sunday? Monday? Tuesday?) I hit my hair up with some baking soda and did a salt rinse. When my hair dried it was all feathery looking, really trippy.But anyway, later on that night, a friend (C) and a housemate (T) said "Hey, let's dread your hair!" and I was like, YAY, finally someone to help me! ^-^ Twist n rip party, yay!So they both got started and the hair was really cooperating. Knotty knotty hair. They only got a few dreads in (in the front) before they got distracted by booze and pot >.< And then they came down from that a bit, and C said he'd do my hair whilst watching Sin City but that didn't happen. The lights went out for the movie and he fell asleep. >.>I managed to get one or two in myself that night with my arms complaining the whole time. The next day I got a couple more, but spent most of my energy that day cleaning house house (read:scrubbing gray things until they were white again).Then I spent the next day being very depressed (I have issues) and slept a lot.Then the next day I was fighting my way out of the depression but got a couple more puny dreads in and tried to combine two because my starters were really scrawny. At least the ones that my friends did. The ones I did were fluffier so fatter.I just got out of the shower with another round of hair stuffs done. When its dry, I'll see about doing some more. I think my 2 scrawny ones I tried to join are still together ^-^I don't mind the partial dreadiness since I I almost always wear a headband to keep hair/flyaways out of my damn eyes so its not a big deal, but I am peeved that my friends started helping me out and then just got drunk and stoned. Grr.I'm wondering if I should try to put in some sort of beads now, or anything else.So yeah, that's whats up with my hair.
so im on this soul serach inspired by love an the verry emotion that brought me from my slum was tempting me back to into its grip.some background an subversive advertisment on my thoughtsMid 08 i was looking up into The BiG sky of WY at Rainbow of living an light thinking of peace prosparity an the ease of life without the ridged blades of babalon. a week or so after my return to the nestalgic cage of civ i was being evicted from my home of 1 year an my prof that i could make it on my own, 17 an trying to hold onto my optimisam i moved back to my mothers who i had been away from for sevral years, joining my mother an brothers cause of preparing for the end of civalitaion as we.... an opening thought envelopes sealed but acknoledge for a long time, im verry apathetic but this was allot to handle an over time i became tunnled visioned into thinking tht every tommarow was going to be D day an then became impatient an lazzy, started to play world of warcraft again an lost my determination for nything but killing time, at the end of june i turned 18 an i met jessica, she inspired me to be a better person an reminded me that life gose on with or without me. taken by her every word i became entranced quikly an i found more motivation everywhere, i studdied an started gathering documents for my jobcorps application an got temp work a few times. I started to look for who i was an a way to center my persinality an become balenced, things fell apart the further i advanced with that plan n i faceplanted under the pressure of life, but getting back up i chanced a look to the sky to find my answer was not mold my persinality to one mathmatic salution but to just act the way i do, screw self imposed reform, indulge self expression an disregaurd our stupid rules, still not tottaly with it i resolved to go insane an tho it wasent verry visable i had fun tell i forgot my plan, stumbled an looked up to see a bit clearer picture, followed by a sevral hands reaching out to me an giving the push that will get me back to my blissfull adventures of mind an feet, my goals of advancment in self an my unstable stability. well short as it turned out for anything i write that is the end, forgive my odd styling of languege n misshaps in spelling
My grandmother passed away yesterday at around 6-8pm PST. Right as I was leaving for work. I made peace with her, and said my good-byes when I left Alabama two years ago, knowing that I might never see her alive again. That's not what bothers me. What bothers me is the fact that I wasn't informed that she was in trouble until the day that she died. My mother and my sister with-held all information from me regarding her hospitalization and just how serious her condition was. I'm not so much sorrowful as I am just plain pissed off. Now, as my father's mother is also sitting on death's doorstep, I'll have to try and go see her, our matriarch, before her time runs out.I apologize in advance for my inactivity over the next few weeks.
So it's been a little over a week now, and my dreadies are coming along nicely. I'm now having major problems with my scalp being really really itchy, but the baking soda wash and vinegar rinse are working really well, even though I'm not adding anything to the baking soda or vinegar (if anyone knows anything that might work to relieve the itchy, please let me know...at the moment I'm just bearing it and trying to ignore it...). I am becoming just a little irked by my (what seems to be permanent) part and the crazy things that my roots are doing, but maybe with time it'll resolve it's self. Also, I've decided that I need more wool... I'm going crochet crazy and just can't seem to help myself. Now I can take all my extra acrylic thread and make socks!! Hello to an army of hand made socks!And now, pictures! Taken as I sit here and type this!
