Most of the writers I know are weird hybrids. There’s a strong streak of egomania coupled with extreme shyness. Writing’s kind of like exhibitionism in private. And there’s also a strange loneliness, and a desire to have some kind of conversation with people, but not a real great ability to do it in person.David Foster Wallace (via dulcetdecember)

Anonymous asked: Hi Kameelah, Shouting back at you from Real Art Ways... I've been meaning to post this for some time and am glad to finally be getting around to it. In her book "The Alchemy of Race and Rights," Patricia Williams writes (referring to her representation of minority clients in a court of law) “I learned that the best way to give voice to those whose voice had been suppressed was to argue that they had no voice.” Powerful, powerful notion, this.

Thank You! See you soon! :)
So happy to be back in the gym. Training for the Electric Run!
Looking for two things: 1) a good dystopian text 2) dream interpretation/significance of dreams/lucid dreaming within the Islamic context. Thanks. xx.
Listening to my body. Getting some tea, valerian root, and my book. Toodles.
Come check this out! One of my videos will be part of this awesome interactive video event at MoMA this Saturday.

ABSTRACT CURRENTS: AN INTERACTIVE VIDEO EVENT
SUNDAY, APRIL 7, 2013
8:30 P.M.–11:30 P.M.
In conjunction with the exhibitions Inventing Abstraction, 1910–1925 andAbstract Generation: Now in Print, the PopRally committee has been collecting hundreds of submissions of one-minute abstract videos created by the public. These video minutes open a broad window into the ways that abstraction endlessly inspires artists, designers, and anyone observing the peripheries of their own daily life. The captured imagery, ranging from the bizarre to the contemplative, is made from small observations in nature, flowing psychedelic mutations, and digitally imagined spaces.
Join us for a special party and see all of the submitted videos displayed on various screens and projections in MoMA’s lobby and on the Marron Atrium walls. Dream-pop queen Tamaryn will DJ the event, providing a hypnotic soundtrack to the collectively built abstract videoscape.
“Gathering of Waters” by Bernice L. McFadden — I just bought this book an hour ago and am already 1/4 of the way through. An excellent read. Who doesn’t love a good story of ghosts, Black folks, and southern churches? Also, the author will be doing a book club talk at the Brooklyn Museum on Saturday night!
