A World Without Categories...Art Is Why I Get Up in the Morning...You?

An S.O.S.: Calling Upon All Angels

Joy Matters*

*Passion & Compassion*

Seek out, seek in...always seeking, always on a journey to bridge the world within with the world around.

Knowing that so many are hurting and alone when there is no need.

If we could just pause long enough to turn the tide.

We are a force of nature because we are nature.

Even when the oil runs dry, the sun will still fuel us. All the panic takes us further away from our natural state, our connection to the creative force, and to the brilliant power of simply being alive. 

Enjoy the ocean if you can and work toward it.

I aim to use my time to add to the creative rather than destructive forces vying for the Earth's resources.

I have found over a million Earth angels on the same mission: to create sustainable beauty out of life.

Let this be a prelude and not the exception.

I honor the lights of this great city as a power point for change, as the center of art, and as a vine of near-ripe revolutionaries.

Artists, women, good people of the Earth rising: rise some more. 

*Revolution begins with personal evolution...

Bless & Be Blessed*

killing is only one way to make the news

Full broadcast coming soon. How many people can we be if we open ourselves up to the full array of characters inside this flesh and bone? I carry so many identities, all real, all part of me, often competing for center-stage...I am torn. However, I rejoice in being open to learning, to beauty in all of its forms, for the best in all of us — whoever we may be. I break from too many choices. I have laid in a million pieces but I have never been broken. World I bring forth upon you my excitement: to balance: to being consistently inconsistent. Sometimes meditating, sometimes making love, sometimes deep in social action, sometimes primal. Deepening towards our roots, kissing the top soil of Mother Earth. The means are the ends.

This is one segment of several news broadcasts that we practiced public-speaking — so much sharpening to do along the way. So many ways to explore our tools of communication and using media for laughter and for community. I have been working on creating two books — one of my own and one by Allision Kramer, who has been photographing the highs and lows of my existence for years now. Chad Meador is a make-it-happen kind of man so when we traveled down to West Virginia for the shoot he had news teams on stand-by.
I think playing in the media is fun and it needs to be done more. I plan on sharing my voice before and after I am ready. I am still shaky and raw — never been more ready...*
