Quarterly reminder that @MissyElliott made it cool to speak your imagination out loud. I cannot imagine what some of these meetings musta been for these music videos/albums. How do you express the concept for Supa Dupa Fly to someone who isn't in your own brain?
I'm in the middle of building something, and for the first time, I have to explain what i mean to someone outside my own brain. and i think about artists like @MissyElliott , @4everBrandy , @Beyonce , @JanetJackson , @chloexhalle whose artistic imaginations are INSPIRING.
The dreaming, for me, is not the hard part. I entertain myself. I can get to the Emerald City, eventually. The task is explaining what i mean to people i work with. it's asking for help, to make something I SEE in my brain work in real life.

Pray for Capricorns please.
"and until i see my notes applied" energy LOL.
"and you all are working so hard, I see it, it's just not right, so much damn swag" energy.

one of Sunday's lectionary texts is about taxes. And as im writing this sunday school lesson, I am so excited to remind people that regular people are more responsible for schools/parks/roads in our community than billionaires. Stop cozying up to them. they're useless.
Billionaires can start as many schools and programs as they want. They can forgive the entire graduating class of Morehouse's loans. i will never cheer. call me a hater if you wanna.

they can pay their share in taxes. That would have more of an impact than anything else.
Give to the emperor what is the emperor's... and what is God's.... give it to God.

If God's face shines in everyone, especially children, widows, orphans, Black people, queer and trans people (and it does)... give God what God needs.

In other words: PAY WHAT YOU OWE!

I now absolutely empathize with depictions of a stressed and irritated Jesus.

How people got “he was a tame hippy who had long hair and hugged everyone” from “HOW MUCH LONGER MUST I BE WITH YOU FOOLS?” is beyond me.
Can you imagine tryna warn people about the powers and all they’re worried about is how to get millennials back to church?
Can you imagine tryna explain to people how to steward conflict because conflict sucks up energy we could otherwise use to build new worlds...and all they’re worried about is branding and selling tee shirts and Bre**naCons?

I have intentionally been avoiding having explicit conversations about this, but here goes. I’m in the middle of writing something else on this, but THIS I can say now.
I recognize: this election is unlike any other I’ve witnessed in my lifetime. the federal government has never told institutions receiving federal aid that they can’t use certain effective words in trainings. whitehouse.gov/presidential-a…
And. In my lifetime,we’ve never seen a global health crisis like THIS ONE.

What is odd to me, is that people are making public statements about blocking/deleting/unfriending other people (with similar power) for choices they’re making. Why does it need to be announced?
