She Dreams

She dreams:

Of a world where you act the same; whether around your friends or when you're together

She dreams:

Of a world where your loyalty is always present even during the toughest of times; in any weather.

She dreams:

Of a world where you listen when she speaks instead of thinking about what you’re going to say after she’s finished.

She dreams:

Of a world where you touch & caress her because you want to, not necessarily because you want something from her.

She dreams:

Of a world where you speak to when she’s next to you, not just when she’s walking out the door.

She dreams:

Of a world where the love grows throughout the years

She dreams:

Of a world where she only cries when she's happy so you won't have to wipe away her tears

She dreams:

Of a world where she can say what’s on her mind without worrying if you’ll think it’s about you.

She dreams:

Of a world where you bring her 3 when she asks for two. 

She dreams:

Of a world when you make it about her without anything to do with you.

She dreams:

Of a world where she can fly without being guided while being caught if she does fall.

She dreams:

Of a love that survives when living miles apart.  

She dreams in her sleep, while she’s awake, She dreams with her heart.

She dreams:

Of a World........

She dreams, She dreams, She dreams,..

& then 1 day she got tired of dreaming & said, I'm going to make this a reality today

1minute the world may not make any sense, i analyze, i debate, i search for answers..but when i clear my head & embrace the thoughts that made me who i am a revitalizing vibe takes over.. Instead of searching I explore my mind & all of a sudden the song that played for awhile shifts into an unfamiliar but pleasurable sound...
answers can be silent... the stars shine and sometimes that's all that is necessary  to get through.... we sometimes look for answers in the form of words or signs that stand out... but  the answers are all around us & inside of us too.... in the sky or the wind that brushes against our face.... silent, but potent... quiet and true... this is living. anything that may have prevented this feeling  @1 point is gone.

escape into life artist: Laura Lawson

  I stumbled upon a blog a little while ago that instantly grabbed my attention the moment I saw it. I checked out her twitter account after I read one of her posts & decided to click the link that she chose to display on her profile. It was her blog entitled “Believing is Seeing” The person I am referring to is Laura Lawson who is an artist & writer from California. Her energy & honest words displayed in each one of her short stories is inspiring to say the least. Laura contributes to a website called http/escapeintolife.com which is dedicated to a friend of hers that she admired. The beautiful art she creates whether through writing or painting displays the passion which she possesses. As I began reading one of her blogs Inoticed the way she sees the bright side of no longer driving a vehicle. She is such a free person really. Sometimes we get caught up in what the world expects of us instead of living the way we want. That blog was so honest because that is the way she really felt. She wasn’t looking at the glass as half full. She poured the liquid into the glass and filled it up. There are so many ways to look at a situation and she brings that to life. Read it and you’ll feel what I’m saying. The one thing that surprised me though was when she considered herself impaired. She does have an eye disease that she says will cause her vision to depreciate over time. That maybe true but there is nothing about this woman that is impaired. Laura’s ability to express herself won her the top vision impaired blog of 2010. Laura’s writing conveys true strength powered by her unfeigned faith & drive to bring those dreams to life. Her genuine personality is so easily felt in her writing & stands out so vividly. Believing is Seeing is “top blog of 2010” material,Period. I’ve met many people who are very successful, have all they need in this world and complain because they don't have enough. There are people who take things for granted in this world everyday. Laura sees the beauty in every single moment of her existence. She realizes that her eye condition may inhibit her in the future but her personality not only enhances her life but the lives of everyone around her. She has the heart and passion that will not stop her regardless of what life throws her way but Iknow that God will have her back and make sure that a miracle happens. I realize that I have no control over this situation but I will with every fiber inside of me pray with kind of intensity of “this has to happen”. She deserves and will have all the tools she needs to live her life to the absolute fullest either way but I have a feeling that she will be rewarded greatly just for being who she is. If you are unfamiliar with Laura Lawson check her out at http/lauralawson.blogspot.com Read her blogs & see for yourself. Nothing will stop her from living her dreams & helping those she loves live their dreams as well. Laura will make her mark whether she uses chalk to create street art, a book that she plans on writing that will help others or painting a piece that will bring tears of joy to peoples faces.  Her art comes from inside of her & pours itself out to the world saying "hello are you ready for me"  I may seem slightly dramatic in what im about to say but,  If I had a wish coming my way i'd trade it any day of the week. i'd use that wish making it certain that she could see perfectly forever; or actually I would just say pass & let the wish go to her instead. I hardly know this person but it doesn't matter; people like Laura Lawson are a gift to this world. A gift to all those that will also be inspired by the work she creates now & in the future. Laura Lawson is the WOMAN!


It's a state of mind
 A combination of moments throughout the years colliding together.
 It's the sharpened awareness of the environment built from wisdom with the innocence remaining.
It's  A spontaneous joyride that leads to unchartered territory opening up a window 4 exploration
 my thoughts roam freely allowing my mind to open up to new experiences.
  these feelings marinate inside leaving a mark that will never be forgotten
I enjoy exotic cuisine  letting my taste buds indulge in all kinds of flavors i haven't tasted before
followed by a trip to a local basketball court where i take jump shots for fun.,
 i  take a walk afterwards to a gallery where i can learn about new treasures that might be found overseas: 
then make my way to a park or even a lake where i can dive in swim around and do the backstroke as i take a break..
 It feels as if i have miles of space even in a small place. 
the ocean exudes a calm yet powerful breeze that is  felt throughout my body.
It's a force that awakens the mind and sets me free as the sound of the water splashes.
I envision my future while I reminisce back to a time where i also felt like this.
the feeling is in the present : genuine and true
this moment is old but yet it is so new
laughter ringing through the air & adults playing as kids all around
my mind is in the clouds when the sand is my ground
my mood is elevated and im taken back to my youth

No matter how fast or slow whatever speed I travel the ocean will go.
Im young again, Im free again,i play however i wish in this sea of imagination.

I feel a continuous flow of increased ecstasy relaxing in a place where i can just be me.
I lay down & dream while im awake.  
I picture a jumpshot at the end of a professional basketball game similar to a child in a park
Just a smile on a face and a shot for fun without any desire of adding points.
A love for the sport shining through on a court where normally winning matters so much......

It's an element that feeds all those around once one begins this amazing domino affect
It's the bliss of a first kiss along with the feeling of a matured romance running through the body.
The aroma of a finely aged wine with a butterfly in the stomach feeling of a playful glance exchanged in the air. 
It's a powerful sensation so genuine and natural
It lives inside and sets off vibes all around
A blend of so many elements like a tree that breeds infinite branches.
It's a feeling that lives inside me and you
so i call it Q

A Look Inside

i dont have a specific style that anyone can possibly imitate, so if you try to copy my sound then you'll always be arriving late. constantly evolving, changing like the leaves on trees. my mind captures an image photographing what my eye sees. then i store it deep inside, releasing the art at another time. maybe in a story that i tell you or while im flowing a new rhyme. never force myself to change with a current trend or scene, but don't resist new ideas either so i create my own theme. the flow you hear develops naturally & is released on any time or date. bringing a sound that illuminates current culture with a spark that you cannot replicate. opening up my mind letting it all soak inside, what else can i do but simply enjoy the ride.........  our ideas  fuel the world we live in.  Our thoughts, Our Words, Our actions feed the ears & the eyes that occupy our surroundings. The energy that is born spreads from person to person, place to place, inspiring a brand new mood. It fills everyone around creating the environment we end up living in. Our Dreams keep us rockin, any poison that created drama melts away because we're immune. this is living. anything that may have prevented this feeling from spreading @1 point is gone.
