The Paw Notes **SAN**

This Old Beast is feeling a little Easy and Loose

The Anger and Frustration I feel is once again being used

The way I want to use it.



It just feels very powerful

When those who've known you for about 2 months

Treat you as a valued comrade



Fortune Once again takes my side

My human Family -

I must Kowtow



Yes My Band has lost one

But since the line-up is small

The Musical Bond becomes more Powerful

today went like this here.

Eating lunch in my office alone. Payday. Finally. I noticed the shell station by my work has hired white people to work there. They started a little pizza shop on the inside and this spindly white dude makes the pizzas. They sell slices of course. Then today I went to get gas and there was a redneck rocker chick at the register. Which is usually an Indian man, she had on a shirt with profanity on it, and told me I looked tired. BITCH WHO YOU CALLIN TIRED!



I have $40 extra bucks that… Continue

It's Reclamation Time!

This is from a questionnaire I had to answer from BOOKLYN Artists Alliance, a book art project in Brooklyn NY. I wrote the response last year, in February 2008. It's basically about why I bother to write my zine, Shotgun Seamstress.



Shotgun Seamstress is a zine for people more or less like myself: Black, queer,

feminist, artist, musician, outsider. It is a zine primarily for Black people who

do not fit into white people's stereotypes of what a Black person should be, and… Continue

Universe said yesterday....

There were a lot of reasons you chose to come to earth, Lyn, and I am super happy to tell you that not one of them was to master being poor, lonely, or sick. Incidentally, neither did you have any intention of living your life without a Condo in Miami.

Clutch!

You came to "kick butt," Lyn...

Ranting on Tuseday AM.



I hit up the confessional this morning and couldn't believe what I read. I mean are these women BLIND? Fools, all of them fools. I'm getting wary of the whole long distance thing, but in my own defense I strike things up with guys in south Florida where I want to move to. So it's like a motivation to get there quicker. Nothing has worked out. Nothing has worked out in 7 years. In 08' I made it a point to be more 'proactive' about my love life… Continue

As the days grow closer

I am so excited about my scout trip to albuquerque.



I have printed out the information I need to get around on the transit system. I need to test it out, to get a sense of how well I can get around until I am able to afford a car after moving to Albuquerque this summer. I did find out they have zip car, so that will help some.



I intend on having my dl by the middle of next month, so I will have some time to get some driving under my belt. I am going to get a zipcar account… Continue
