Take a LOOK- SEE The Art

999 or shall I say "NO NO NO Cornell" Art is about the artist's identity, and the time, place and vision of the artist. This is the only determination to the art of a people.

Why we do what we do when we do it.

Someone asked "Why do people use God as an excuse?"  I responded:  "Is there a better one?"    "Helping one another run the gauntlet from birth to old age (and beyond) has brought out the best in African American families throughout history."

The very first document is living organic skin, which contains the sky, the earth, the waters and the wind.  One learns to read prophesies, fore warnings and truths in the skin and the blood.  The story of creation is found in the skin. This is the first language based in ecology, theology and biology.  The world within is whole and all things that are within are without.  It is from the internal center that we unite with the world and the universe.


            From the world…

The Ancient Law of Words of Power (AUM)

The Law of Words of Power "There are words (symbols) that are able to change the inner and/or outer realities of those using/perceiving them.

The basis of these words of power, or mantras lie in their vibrational value, in the structural energy-pattern that they form through the enunciation of them, and the way that these vibrations and energy-pattern affect our…
