WEEKLY WHAT’S GOOD
WHAT GOOD ARE YOU MAKIN?
It’s yours for the takin.
So, give it a go. Who knows – you may dig it like WOAH.
Warning though – it’s straight up addictive.
May and June is filled with GM preparations for our SUMMER 2011 AFRICA journey – traveling to conduct creative empowerment & educational programs for children and communities in underserved countries abroad, spotlighting organizations already championing the cause.
Be sure to watchÂ TAKE BACK THE BLOCK trailer on the siteÂ - previewing the GM Street Team community outreach campaign beginning locally here in the U.S. and spreading to the far reaches of Nairobi’s Kibera Slums. It’s all about using creativity to uncover confidence and community support to create continuing sustainability.
Though it’s an overused phrase – it’s absolutely true…
Donations of any size, however small or seemingly insignificant, mean everything!
$1 in our reality means much more to those surviving without much at all.
The GOOD we make is in creating connection amongst these severely underserved people and people like usâ€¦ Remembering that whether we have cool kicks, new iPods, delicious desserts or not – we are all alive together on this radical (albeit pretty insane) planet.
We all want to preserve life with as much love, happiness and joyful sensation as is physically possible and absolutely should – to the fullest of our abilities!
On which note!

On a parting note – we’ll leave y’all with a kick off to the work week as reminder to breathe before ya blast off!
More and more, it seems that life is simply a series of images attached
to feelings, projected through our eyes
and from our hearts and onto ceilings.
And though we become stuck when contemplating healing,
we know we’ll never grant ourselves a chance
if we’re stuck kneeling.
We have choice always as to what sort of voice we use
and if we abuse with it
or are abused by its limits.
It’s mainly us that restrict ourselves -
self-imposed boundaries we could repel,
but refuse always to see as such,
desperate to stay numb and out of touch.
But, the human experience expects contact -
it’s a mental, emotional, physical fact -
that from stories shared,
we grow and react.
And the miracle of human beings is just that -
that our hearts survive somehow intact.
But only if we bring love back -
and that’s what affects what we attract.
OUR CURRENT FAVORITE COSMIC FACT?
MAKIN GOOD ATTRACTS GOOD – that lasts.
So keep your good makin shakin.
It’s a pretty radical sensation.
