Do you Meditate? Gaia has educate me on Yoga & much more.
I'm hooked & love it. Ivan (my cartoonist friend & mentor) introduced me to Gaia a few months back and I am grateful. Watch a 2 hour movie or a 2 minute inspirational vid.
I don't do T.V, well - yes I do, I watch documentaries, movies, and the occasional television series like Bob's Burgers (enjoying it better than the family guy- because there is MORE love & it's cute) no cable T.V. - NO commercials! Documentaries are my preferred TV experience until Gaia... a friend sent me this:
Gaia helps me feel good, movies, documentaries, talk shows - it's what I have on when painting, if I don't want to listen to music or paint in silence. I watched a episode last night and felt quite a bit of relief, it was about 'sensitive beings' - I AM one of these over sensitive people, I over think everything and I feel' intensely... I can 'feel people' from a distance, I've proven it to myself & others and have had some 'freaked out' by it.
Why are we drawn to others, some on the other side of the world, the internet made it possible for us to click', God brings us together - why - I'm not always sure - each person is a lesson. People share things (events, secrets, stories) with me, I use to think was a curse- now I realize it too is a gift. The more you know on any subject the more power you have to see things clearly. Still, I do not understand it all, but with clarity comes choice... some people have helped me choose - to keep my distance from them.
Above all, I come away from watching Gaia with the quote in mind:
"We are all just walking each other home" Ram Dass.
Gaia also discusses life, history, BC, AD and CE , Aliens (from space), do I believe in Aliens. Yes. I also feel they will try to prevent a nuclear disaster - lol (nervous laughter)- and evidence shows this to be true... speaking of which - do you have an Emergency kit ready?
Why not- give yourself a bit of peace of mind, have hope - thanks to Aliens.
I have hope in each other. If you want to be uplifted, inspired - not bombarded with violence and nasty.. I highly recommend Gaia. www.gaia.com
It is a service you have to pay for ($ 10. a month) but I believe you can watch some for free.
I have hope, then I read about these parents in California who have tourtured their children.. it's one thing to be hurt by strangers - what can ever be done to help these children, the oldest daughter is 29, the only thought that is helping me deal with this - is these children will become financially secure- (movies will be made) people will help them, at least they might get 'physical comfort' the rest of their lives, what would I like to see happen, the 'parents' will be treated just like they treated their children - sit food in front of them and starve them. Talk about f*cked up... parents? It is just a word.
Evil is what these two are, toys in boxes- it sounds like all they ever played with the kids was mental mind games. I can't look at them without feeling "hate" bubbling up inside me - so I KNOW - I must focus on something else, God will look after those 2, and other violent prisoners will help...
As much as I try not to judge & believe in love and peace - how can you not judge these two, who cares what kind of life they had, they knew what they were doing was wrong.
I saw someone the other day who I know is facing sexual allegations, I can tell you in a just few months - it is showing on his face & health he looks like he's aged 5 years at least, appears tired and if you ask me- you can tell he's worried. The confidence once obvious has dwindled. I guess so. It's almost sad to see, once considered a leader by many .. now a seen as no more than an 'old perv.' People still smile but they think different.
Who does he have to blame? The women that expose him - nope.
This is not about hating men, women love men... thank God there are many good men who won't ever hurt or treat others poorly. This is about men who treat women badly, men who use their positions & power to hurt others, mentally & sexually - they are sneaky, manipulative and corrupt to the core & buy their way out of problems with lawyers or hush money.
It's about time WOODY ALLEN is called out- he should have been charged DECADES ago, instead WE all kept him wealthy. EVERYONE who paid to see his movies, paid to keep that perv busy. Steven Segal? He is another many knew about for years- where are all these scumbags now? Who cares- their careers are over. Adios.
To ALL women who have the courage to speak up - I believe you.
These men need to be acknowledged, should PAY$$ for any damages, fired and then- ignored. What MAJOR company want to represented by a PERVERT?
Especially cutting edge companies?
The sun the moon and the truth...
3 things guaranteed to show themselves.

Scruffy is the Yoga master:
I was thinking about hard workers' while working on this cartoon.. my entire life I've been surrounded by hard workers. What a blessing that has been. I was also thinking about Martin Luther King Jr.s' speech.. dreaming of a day when all men are created equal.. should simple read:
... when 'all' are created equal.
I've experienced, witnessed & heard many accounts where women were getting paid less and treated worse. It is hurting the next generation, it has already hurt this one.
I've learned about equality - or rather I've learned about inequality. I've seen people I know work hard, found out they did not get paid what others were paid for the same job, in some cases a BETTER job. Chances are we ALL know someone who works someplace because a parent- gave them the job, we watch as they waste time, are paid better than most other employees who work harder for much less... the bosses children behave like 'Divas, came in when they wanted, left early, helped them self to product.. and others watch and built up resentment. It's difficult to watch right?
I've seen it many times over, no doubt I'm not alone.
We've all been there.
Not quite.. we have not all been there. We are not all there.
Are you Black, Latino, Indian, Female? They get paid less for working harder (in many cases) simply because of the color of their skin and gender. It' that simple.
It's that shameful. Men & women both should care & speak up. It is all our future.
This rule applies to men as well, men of color' get paid less- simply due to the color of their skin & in many cases work harder and are can better educated & suited for some jobs (AS are ALL women.) but white men get them.
It appears the wealthiest are old, white men.
Women are rarely paid equal amounts for equal work.
Women also deal with sexual harassment on epic levels.
Wtf is wrong with the system? THAT.
Nothing will ever be right until we start with treating each other how we DESERVE to be treated, fairly. It's not about our sex, skin color, hair, it SHOULD be only about our quality of work.
IF you're not being treated fairly - QUIT! I understand it's not that simple, many moms trying to feed their kids. If you're not being treated fairly - get smart about it: Document everything. Save, note, record anyway you can if need be.
If employers are abusing you, the system - there are becoming more resources to turn to.
I have hope.
If you are lazy and living off the system & others, that is your choice too..
We are not placed on this planet to be parasites - we are each here to SHINE!!!
What confusing about Equal rights? Equal pay for equal job- it's that simple.
When it comes to equal rights there is only one person to blame- the owners, bosses, CEO's head haunchos' who USE the backs of others to succeed with their greed, they let it happen, they choose to turn a blind eye, they make the rules the decisions.
Some rise to the top walking on the back of others and care very little for 'who they have to step on to get there. Speak up. It effects us all.
I did watch President Obama on the David letterman show, what a gentleman.

Yesterday, I was approached by a woman, yelling from her car window "What's your dogs name?" When was in a new big black car, and was traveling on the opposite side of the street in t he opposite direction I was walking - again she yells " I like your Dog! What's it's name?"
Traffic was busy - school had just been let out- I kinda looked at her thinking 'is she for real and kept walking as I was almost at my home and here's the thing- some times- I avoid all humans- I'm just out to get some fresh air, yesterday was one of those days.
The next thing I know - she's turned the vehicle around- and she's almost pulled infant of my house - yelling at me "Hey, I asked whats your dog's name?! My grandson wants to see it!!"
I was shocked and turned and said, abruptly - "I don't encourage my dog to talk to strangers." I then was thinking - wtf was that? I felt very uncomfortable... once in my home- I thought - the guys will never believe that- it seems I'm constantly having 'eventful walks' with strangers. - Luckily, my son was one of the vehicles she cut off - on a very busy street at a very busy time and he could see how visibly upset I was as I walked into our home. He came in and asked right away "Who was that woman? What was she yelling?"
Grandma.. not only is your driving extremely dangerous, for all the other vehicles, school children and your own grandson - WHAT ARE you teaching your grandson? It's o.k. for strangers to drive around and yell at other strangers from their vehicles encouraging them to talk to strangers? It's to the point, with or without her vest- I have an irresistible dog- because in part she is very well behaved... for me. She loves me & others thinks she's awesome, She is... for me.
Please don't do what this woman did - it was wrong on several levels.
I have work on my desk & easel in various stages, some fun others editorial...
#metoo one is titled.
This terribly sad thing about #metoo - I honestly do not know a woman who can't say #metoo. MeToo on many levels and it's still happening.
What classifies as #metoo content ? #TOOmuch
It's a beautiful day- I'm currently outside drawing in my t-shit and the girls are loving every second of it but I think I'll leave my walking until I get dog spray.
I did just finish this sweet baby bear:
Be like a tree... let the dead leaves drop.
Enjoy the sunshine!
