New Moon in Pisces

The New Moon in pisces is thought to bring about the cultivation of a new creative life, allowing ones self to create from the heart the things that the imagination desires. But, beware of things in life that allow you to over indulge in the fantesy world. Anxiety surrounding achievement could cause you to "jump the gun," focus more on stratigic and methodical preperation is key in bring about your desire to succeed in your creative goals.
And these two videos... because I appreciate the theatrics

Shut up and Listen- TuPac -Until the End of Time

Perhaps I was addicted to the dark side / Somewhere inside my childhood I missed my heart die / And even though we both came from the same places / The money and the fame made us all change places / How could it be through the misery that came to pass/ The hard times make a true friend afraid to ask, for currency / But you could run to me when you need me, I'll never leave / I just needed someone to believe in, as you can see / It's a small thing through and true / What could I do? Real homies help ya get through, / And coming knew he'd do the same thing if he could / Cause in the hood true homies make you feel good / And half the time we be acting up call the cops / Bringing the cease to the peace that was on my block / It never stop, when my mama ask me will I change / I tell her yeah, but it's clear I'll always be the same / Until the end of time

[Chorus: RL]

So take, these broken wings I need your hands to come and heal me once again (Until the end of time) So I can fly away, until the end of time Until the end of time Until the end of time


Please Lord forgive me for my life of sin

My hard stare seem to scare all my sister's kids

So you know I don't hang around the house much

This all night money making got me outta touch, shit

Ain't flashed a smile in a long while

An unexpected birth worst of the ghetto child

My attitude got me walking solo

Ride out alone in my low-low

Watching the whole world move in slow-mo

For quiet times disappear listen to the ocean

Smoking Ports think my thoughts

Then it's back to coasting

Who can I trust in this cold world

My phony homey had a baby by my own girl

But I ain't trippin I'm a player I ain't sweating him

I sexed his sister, had her mo' good like a Mexican

His next of kin, No remorse it was meant to happen

Besides rapping the only thing I did good was scrapping

Until the end of time

[Chorus x2] [2Pac] Now who's to say if I was right or wrong?

To live my life as an outlaw all along

Remain strong in this planet full of player haters

They conversate but Death Row full of demonstrators

And in the end drinking Hennessey made all my enemies envy me

So cold when I flow eliminating easily

Fall to their knees, they plead for their right to breath

While beggin me to keep the peace (ha ha)

Well I can see close into achieve

In times of danger don't freeze time to be a g

Follow my lead I supply everything you need

An ounce of game and the training to make a g

Remember me, as an outcast outlaw

Another album out that's what I'm about, more

Gettin raw till the day I see my casket

Buried as a g while the whole world remembers me

Until the end of time


If an angel comes down

And takes me away

The memories of me

And my songs

Will always stay

Till they can find

(Until The End of Time)

Until the end of time

Till the end of time

Faces of Change: Flicks from Feb SFUSD Meeting to Approve Ethnic Studies in HS

I woke up on Feb. 22, 2010 to the dawn of a new day. On this day the SF school board would be approving ethnic studies as a high school requirement. When I was 15 (can you see the on going theme in development.... LOL) I was introduced to the idea of Equitable Education, which was the idea that everyone had the right to receive an education that would reflect their experience which in turn would allow them to connect the fundamental building blocks of knowledge to the world as they knew it...

I know in my life racial and ethnic identity as well as the place of culture has been at the core of my formation as a human being. Questions about my race is the number one question I get on a daily basis and one thing that is never talked about at home.

The confusion that I've had, having to do with the integration of my two racial ethnicities has left my heart and mind in a twist. It's confusing being a mixed kid... sometimes.

I was never really thought of as white... everyone usually went for Latin or maybe Italian, maybe..... or you're something exotic.... or "by the look of her shape you would think she's part black."... So this being the case for me... you can imagine how elated I was to find out that they would be having courses that youth could take before college to help them with their identity as well as provide them with knowledge of the Ethnicities that they inhabit the world with.

Here are some flicks from the meeting, of youth, activists, organizers, teachers and parents sharing their testimonials
