Journal page done while at the laundromat today:

Journal that I am working in currently fanned out and open:



I'm still livid-livid-with what happened last night in MacArthur Park that the LAPD evoked terror and violence on people (including children) who were legally within their rights in a public park. I have been listening to KPFK's coverage of what happened yesterday throughout the day. I am angry. I am sad. I am bullshit. "To Protect and Serve". Yeah. Right.

People ask me why I blog about so called "political" stuff. In all honesty, to me, it's not "political". It's life. It's happening all around us, everyday. It's happening to us and to our fellow human beings. If I excluded my feelings from my artwork and my blog postings, I wouldn't be being honest. I wouldn't be me. My artwork. My life. They revolve around the world-not just my little world, but the things that I see, hear and read daily. They're a part of me, just as much as they are a part of you.
