the shellsuit liberation front

July 8, 2009

these R sum photos me & hudro did 4 the ecstatic beings book.


the SLF r a bunch of street-level activists who target the most vulnerable members of our society.


those whose egos R 2 fragile 4 this world, those tender, open souls who do not have a shell & R always finding themselves battered & bruised by our mechanized, soulless, competitive, corporate society.


the mission of the SLF is 2 go around handing out shellsuits 2 those in need.


the SLF say, its ok, we R here. wear ur shellsuit with joy. B proud that ur not a bullying, greedy, selfish, aggrandizing egomaniac.


we love U. & the world is going thru a period of rapid change. its all goin2 B ok. soon U wont even need 2 wear a shellsuit anymore. & everyone can walk down the streets with open hearts & ecstatic minds cos the bullies arent goin2 b in charge 4 much longer.

the 273rd post

this was my 1st entry on jun 21st 2008


princess leia gets priority seating on the train.

this is a photo of me outside a massage parlour in shoreditch in jun 08.


& same place again almost exactly a year later


have i changed?


sometimes its hard 2 put my life in2 words which is why i wanted 2 attempt here 2 put it in2 pictures. “magic” 4 me is an easy word 2 summarise the daily insights, interactions & serendipities which cause me 2 feel that life is an inherently joyous  & wondrous experience. its the odd moments, the tiny incidences which form the fabric of our days that make me believe life is a gift handed 2 us by a loving & beneficent creator.


i cant make my life make sense easily with words. as i go from hiphop 2 housework via tahini & tattoos, the worlds i travel thru seem disconnected, randomly thrust 2gether in a sequence which defies logic. 


but of course flying lotus & fo ti root, red mutha & reishi tea, do all have a connecting thread, & that is my love 4 them all.


we R the slash slash slash generation. not happy with labels, we usually need at least 3 (eg writer/mother/dancer). we can & we do do everything we believe we can. maybe my slashes R more random than most. but that doesnt make them any less real or less heartfelt.


my pictures R a testament 2 this blessing we call humanity.


they R a celebration of the diversity of a life lived outside the box.


i share them in the hope that they serve as an affirmation 4 us all that the good life is found in friends, family, food & music.


all we need is a heart that bursts with love & a mind that trusts fully in the magic & infinity is ours.
