As you know, tomorrow is Super Tuesday, where more than 22 states will hold their primaries or caucuses—one state which will be California. I am voting for BARACK OBAMA because I feel that he has the necessary experience to serve this country and has also utilized grassroots efforts to engage and excite millions of people, transcending race, ethnicity, gender, ability, immigrant status, political party, etc. These past couple of months, America has seen someone who can CHANGE policies and the lives of many, give the ordinary person HOPE for a better tomorrow and has done so with INTEGRITY, RESPECT and POISE.

Counting down the hours before Super Tuesday begins, I wanted to share a new independent video about BARACK OBAMA. For me, it embodies the sense of inspiration that so many people feel about his candidacy. Words don't do it justice, you have to watch it for yourself


I hope you will join me in voting for Barack Obama. Find your polling place: http://my.barackobama.com/CAlookup

It's time to put an end to the say-anything-to-win politics of the past. Together we can face the challenges of the future with a new kind of politics and a new kind of leadership. If you already know where you'll be voting on Tuesday, take a minute to invite five of your friends to look up their polling place:http://my.barackobama.com/CAlookup or in CA you can call the state registrars office at 1-800-345-VOTE

Thanks!

BTW here are some pix from Fridays Obama rally outside of Kerckhoff Hall at UCLA with Tatyana Ali, Max Kennedy (RFK's son), Kerry Washington, and California State Majority Assemblymember Karen Bass + some pix from yesterdays Obama rally at Pauley Pavilion (UCLA) with Oprah, Caroline Kennedy, Michelle Obama, Stevie Wonder and surprise guest Maria Shriver

Most of the pictures are under the cut because they are pretty big

Here are a few details and rules that will help make the voting process run smoothly. Make sure to share these with your friends:

*Polls are open from 7:00 a.m. to at least 8:00 p.m. Anyone in line at the time the polls close is allowed to vote.


*Voters have the right to cast a provisional ballot even if their name is not listed on the voting rolls. If a voter is at the wrong polling location and has time to get to the correct polling location before polls close at 8:00 p.m., they should go to the correct one and vote with a regular ballot instead of voting with a provisional ballot at the wrong location.

*If you declined to select a political party when you registered to vote, you can still vote for Barack Obama if you request a Democratic ballot from the poll worker. Make sure you mark "Democratic" in the appropriate space or the vote might not be counted.

*Voters have the right to return a completed vote-by-mail ballot to any precinct in their county.

*If you have any difficulties, you can call the California Obama Election Protection Hotline:
o LOS ANGELES: (310) 801-9546 or (310) 779-0816
o SAN FRANCISCO/BAY AREA: (510) 520-5025
o OAKLAND/EAST BAY: (415) 606-6043
o SAN DIEGO: (619) 770-7105
*************

find your polling place in CA: http://my.barackobama.com/CAlookup or call the state registrars office at 1-800-345-VOTE

In other states please google your state registrars office or visit: http://my.barackobama.com/page/content/statepages

Nov. 30th, 2005 11:49 pm Sunday Sleeping

Languid
her arms stroked silken sheets
Arms like milk,
like sex held in sun-warmed rooms.
Bare toes
curled gently
as sunlight longingly presses
against cream-colored eyelids.
Dark,
laquered eyelashes
slide open, revealing her soul

As my heart flutters,
Undone.

while i hang you up on high
you don't seem to mind too much, though i
feel the reasons for consciousness leaving me

my body is a chandelier to catch the light
of your grin, fragile if you should let it fall
but you don't seem to mind too much, so long
as there is fuel in the fire of this song

this is a distant proposal in which
i offer you my hand, what makes it move and
want to hold your heart inside, close to mine

it gets easier by the day
to do things with patience, to mean what i say
you don't seem to mind too much
i would share with you, i would not take

Feb. 16th, 2005 05:20 pm It's a song, but I don't think I'm done with it yet...

Let's find a stretch of road one night
I'll wear the coat you said you liked
We'll find a place where we can just
Fade away

You hold me in your arms so tight
Both unsure but it feels so right
Look in your eyes I feel I can
Drift away

The sun can go and screw itself
'Cause then I'll be with someone else
And everything we've ever had
Seems hopeless and all for nothing...





That's all I have so far, what do you think?

Through the avenues of my life
I find pieces of you
Valed in misleading truths and honest lies
Always in places I least expect
Attempting to save myself from you...from me
The rash impetuous boy, grown old too soon
Even with all my skill and subtlety, slow to anger
Yet swift with vengeance...its the scorpion in me I think...
I find myself lost, in these vague remembrances

I find pieces of you in places I least expect,
Especially when I attempt to push you to the corners of my mind
When all is safe, and honest, and pure, in the dark shadows of twilight
I find you there... or there... or here...and startled I pause...stunned by your light
Blinded from all else but your divine radiance
Yet it is the scorpion in me that chooses to sting, and cling and sting again
Trying to escape the unknown...yet that is an honest lie...
Truth be told, I wouldn’t want to escape...
But my venom is deadly
And like Romeo who drinks the fatal vial
Just as Juliet wakes,
He looks into her eyes...
Knowing its too late

Though I would seek to beat death...that too is an honest lie
I have been embraced by it far too long...
The pieces of you I find are becoming fewer... and more precious
Tiny treasures that fade away on the winds, and death comes to all things
A misleading truth, in that from death, life also springs....
But I do not cling to hope for I’ve stung that too...
My venom is deadly and there is no cure...
I hope,
that is an honest lie...

AMO 1.3 Amoration Holiday Edition


In this update:
*OPEN STUDIO ART SALE DECEMBER 12th*
Upcoming events, performances and media projects


Happy Holidays and a very big thank you for your support of Amoration's creative pursuits. 2004 has been an amazing year and the best is yet to come! Our Amoration bridgebuilding team is EXCITED and we are pouring everything we've got into our upcoming work in Bihar, India. 12 amazing volunteers have stepped forward from three continents to join us for this groundbreaking experiment in creative compassion.

Now comes the best part: bringing you along for the journey!
We depart in 9 weeks and must raise $60,000 by January 15th to make this schoolbuilding project possible. This includes all travel expenses for our volunteer team, materials to build and furnish the school, gifts to sustain the school for one year and production materials to document the entire process.

EVERY GIFT HELPS MAKE THIS PARTNERSHIP A REALITY!
To offer a gift via paypal, credit card or check visit
www.ihcenter.org/groups/amoration.html


Project partners will be recognized with a special presentation at the new school in Bihar and on the DVD/documentary. Copies of the DVD and special acknowledgments will also be given to those who choose
to become Partner Producers with a gift of $500 or more. The final documentary is designed for television broadcast as a model for grassroots community building -- when was the last time you saw a reality show that had this much heart?


OPEN STUDIO ART SALE DECEMBER 12th
We are opening our new studios to you for a special one-day holiday gift
event! Artwork, photographs, jewelry and other gifts will be on sale to
benefit the Bridge to Bodhgaya. Come visit our studio and meet our
staff at 3303 Pico Blvd in Santa Monica, behind the UnUrban Cafe and across from Trader Joes.

DONATIONS OF TALENT, TIME AND RESOURCES ARE ALSO WELCOME!
"Privilege-Sharing", our grassroots partners in India, has sent the
following list of items to help furnish the school and care for the
communities where they work. We encourage all classrooms, civic groups
and communities of faith to host local donation drives and drop off
donated items to our studio in Santa Monica by January 15th.

List of requested items:
child art supplies
pens, pencils, erasers, sharpeners
little bags to hold these supplies
educational toys and tools (flash cards, paperback books)
simple board games (small and light is best)
a globe
a map of the world
first aid supplies
vitamins and basic medicines (unopened only please)
toothbrushes
pipecleaners and colorful small toys
inflatable balls or small rubber balls
backpacks in new or good condition
computers: macintosh is best
software and accessories

We regret that shipping heavy items is not economically viable
(unless you can help secure travel and shipping arrangements!). Food,
clothing, blankets, soap and other sundries will be purchased in India for
the community.

Thank you all so much for your continued support of Amoration's
work around the world. We are thrilled to share with you in creating
a culture of conscious compassion!

FUTURE EVENTS

January 18th: INTIMATE at the UnUrban, 8PM 3301 Pico, Santa Monica

A night of art, bodypainting, poetry, discussion and exploration of connection

February 15th: AMORATION at the UnUrban, 7PM 3301 Pico, Santa Monica
Come view the first footage of our work in India and discuss love, engagement and action around the world

Love and light for this beautiful holiday season....

alliecatjewelryNov. 29th, 2004 08:43 pm Tribal Café mailing list... :)

If anyone wants to be added to the mailing list that is strictly for announcing the opening date/time/etc. of Tribal Café in Echo Park, and a few other announcements like the post below this one (needing creative people to help out), just email me at: martha@alliecatjewelry.com with the email address you want to be added in the body of the email if it's different than your "Reply To:" email address. You won't be getting any emails after the café opens as I will possibly be helping the owner, Josh, set up a regular, on-going mailing list for that. If I do end up helping him do that, you'll know about it beforehand by joining this mailing list above (I'll post about it in this Live Journal, also) and you'll have the option of continuing to receive Tribal Café updates. You can unsubscribe at any time whatsoever and your email address will never be given/shown/sold/etc. to anyone at any time, period.

Anyways, thank you and I hope to see you at Tribal Café soon!!! :D ;) PEACE!!! :D ;)

Sep. 29th, 2004 07:09 pm Open Mike Fri night in Santa Monica

Need a spot to try out your spoken word? here is a comfy cozy venue
only restriction is on foul language and they say that up front because of its location...
go and lay down some verse...



Hi poetry friends,


On behalf of my co-hosts, Dave Nordling, Mani Suri,
and Marie Lecravain, I’d like to invite you to join us
for another Friday night of great open mic poetry.
We’d sure love to hear your wonderful words as well,
so come on down and join us.

Our feature this Friday is Mike the Poet. Mike is a
dynamic force and a pleasure to listen to him. Come
down Friday and hear him.

On the 8th we’ll feature Terry McCarty. Eric Haber
will feature on the 15th. T.J. Sullivan will headline
on the 22nd and David Bloome will feature on the 29th
of October.

Every Friday the Rapp Saloon is available as a place
for you to share your words. We have been here for
nearly two years and our goal continues to be to
provide a space for poets to share with other poets
and with people who enjoy hearing the spoken word. We
would sure love to have your words be a part of this
Friday’s reading.

Our reading starts at 8PM with sign-ups at 7:30.

The Rapp Saloon is located in the Hostelling
International building at 1436 2nd St in Santa Monica
(between Santa Monica Blvd. and Broadway). Our hosts
at the hostel ask that we not bring food and drink
into of the Rapp Saloon and that we avoid using
profanity. Please show your respect for our hosts by
adhering to these requests.

Improved directions:

The construction is done in Santa Monica but this is
still the easiest way to the Rapp if you are getting
off the 10, Santa Monica Freeway exit at Lincoln. Get
in the second lane from the right. Go across Lincoln
and turn right on 7th Street. Then turn left on
Colorado and take Colorado to 2nd St and turn right.
Cross Broadway and there is a parking structure right
across the street from the Rapp Saloon. There is
another, larger, parking structure one block north.

For more information about the poetry scene visit
poetix.net

Another site for information about the local poetry
scene is poeticdiversity.org

Week in and week out we have some of the finest poetry
in the Southland. Come on down Friday and be a part
of it.

Sep. 16th, 2004 01:41 pm Intro and Prose

Pink
--------

With sugar-coated laughter
And eyes of glittering glass
She talks pink,
With her cotton candy thoughts.

She lives the style that proclaims "Vive en Rose!"
Of course,
If she was told that,
The expression of a disinterested cow
Blankly chewing its cud
Would drape itself over her high cheekbones
And Cupid's bow lips.

But she will brush off
That wrinkle-causing knowledge
For her lipsticks and bubblegum voice
And her mascara-clad lashes that flutter just-so
One day, will make the most beautiful shroud, don't you know...

Hey, my name's Rashel, and I'm new.. Hope you liked it..
