I think it is important that from time to time we remember those who helps shape the energy of this country. James Baldwin was a famous poetic and today would have been his birthday, May he Rest in Power......
Love takes off masks
that we fear we can not live without
and know we can not live within.
Precisely at the point when you
begin to develop a conscious you must
find yourself at war with your society.
We are very carefully trapped between what we would
like and what we actually are, and we can not
possibly become what we would like to be until
we are willing to ask ourselves just why the lives we
on this contient are manly so empty,
so tame and to ugly.
Not everything that is faced can be Changed,
but nothing can be changed until it is faced.
The Precise role of the Artist then is to
Illuminate that darkness, blaze roads through vast
forest, so that we will not in our doing,
lose sight of it's purpose, which is after all
to make the world a more human dwelling place.
In La'Kesh, (I am another yourself) Peace, Love and Power
