dope Alert Mondays
I love when I am connected with amazing new ways to manifest my dreams. I know you have all heard of a vision board and may have created one on your journey. Today, My BFF shared a link on her facebook wall from an amazing blog called LISA C WRITES The post is called "Getting Buck Wild With Life" and explains the concept of a Manifestation journal. This is powerful stuff and truly resonanted with me. I am a firm believer in the Law of Attraction and manifesting. As a writer the concept of creating your life by writing detailed "stories in a journal of your hopes and dreams really got me hyped. I love how Lisa challenges you to "Get Buck with Life" and to be bold and fearless in your Manifestations. What a powerful message of empowerment. We are so on the same page. So, today my "dope Alert Monday" is dedicated to this exercise shared by Lisa and her entire blog.
I am so hyped by this idea that I have already written 4 pages in my journal of stories that I believe with all my heart will come true. You ask and receive. Its the law of the Universe. Here is a a part of my story written today:
Today I woke up with the best email from three different theatre companies in Atlanta, Chicago and New York. They all loved the materials and scripts I sent for the Lady Terror show. They want to comission me to produce a multimedia show around the themes of creative empowerment, rage and social justice. I'm so excited and cant wait to interview and hire the sound, lighting and scene shop artists to start collaborating. I want the shows to remain intimate, raw and real. I will have lots of screens, hip hop music, movement, and live feeds from the street and guerilla art spectacles that are at the core of my work.
They also approved the budgets I sent with no hesitations. Each of the three companies will invest $25,000 with a 60/40 split on all ticket sales. They also approved to pay for our housing and car expenses while I'm in town producing the shows. The hubby will also be producing his artists and writing music for video games with Micrsoft and new TV shows for MTV. MTV is in NY so the entire family will be together during this exciting time. I cant wait to take Saheim to see the Statue of Liberty and be back in my hometown of Chicago for that leg of the journey. The show will be great. I am blessed.
That feels wonderful! Read the post on Lisa's blog and do this now. Its dope! Also follow Lisa on twitter @LisaCWrites Now, go get buck!
I create art for the ones who lost their voice a long time ago. I believe that impromptu spectacles can bring awareness to social justice issues that paralyze our communities. Lady Terror examines the relationship between public space and performance space and also explores ranting as a medium to address social issues and as a tool to empower communities. My art is local and neighborhood specific in its execution but global in its ideas around poverty, injustice and violence.
