lost, found, past, present, blood and otherwise
Opening First Friday, October 2nd
534 SE Oak Street
(1 blk N. or Stark, 1/2 blk E. of Grand)
The March goes on or “Am I my Brother’s Keeper”
Fire of challenge – stuck-ness—us versus them – blood relatives versus extended family traditional nucleus and modern day tribe—there are no two worlds not yours or mine but only ours.
We are partners in progress not in crime walking together towards one goal for humanity.
Family is co-created is a place not just a label, a place with greater unity and better rewards for all.
We need others to stay awake on our journey, a life time of searching for better ways to commune with others.
It is not about how to divide or conquer it is about “Am I my Brother’s Keeper” and if it’s not me who is it?
Who is the council we can count on to built the track with the right record.
An authentic life needs to be evaluated by a language in love with truth.
Who is the problem but the divider the me in us but the us means also all of us.
Whom do we leave behind?
Many are still in the closet not because they want too but because we force them by having created an environment where no one feels save to show themselves fully in fear of being declared un-loveable.
Don’t ask don’t tell is a miss guided policy not just in the military but also in regular life.
Bill Clinton bought into a false promise because he too had things to hide and thought of it as okay.
Now that he came clean he is able to reverse his mistake and has shifted to even accept same sex marriage realizing that "Family” can have many equal versions and that the moral behind moralizing is self loathing projected on to others.
It enables us to pretend that even if we are walking amongst people we think of as losers that we are not part of it but somewhat better but in reality we are smaller than the smallest and isolated from the truth.
Obama is still failing in the only thing that really matters historically “the end of discrimination” and it has to happen from the top down so we all realize that even on the family level it cannot be tolerated anymore in any shame and form
Shaming others has to stop right now with in us.
Separation thinking is the cause of all WARS.
As long as we focuse on our differences nobody will be save on this planet.
The band still plays on but it still is a funeral march because we are still standing by as big parts of humanity are dying of Aids and other maladies.
The march has just begun as we still are running after equality for all humans.
We invade countries in the name of an oblivious freedom and allow those countries to produce and sell drugs that demolish our social structures or are complicit as silent witness when women, gays and others are slaughter like animals like it's happing in Iraq or Afganistan.
Human rights are still kicked around in this country like a homophobic football 40 years after Stonewall and the GLBT community is still begging for the rights to be who we are part of the human family.
Matthew Sheppard is a painful reminder of the hate that still boils in America’s blood.
Critic is not welcome but excuses are handed out like second hand smoke keeping this cancer alive.
We are waiting for congress to come up with a bill to end discrimination but everyone got so used to it that it seems we almost enjoy it.
It always takes two an oppressor and a victim and that’s why family is so important. Family is suppose to be the back bone of society in the need to every ones rights.
The employment non discrimination act is the latest farce that exempts churches of all places and small business to indulge in homophobic hiring practices.
If we think that has nothing to do with family we are wrong. Civil and other rights are for all and can be taken away if we allow to be so fractured to be politically impotent.
Gays are the new blacks like it or not and are the only ones who are still denied all rights under the law.
We are your brothers and sister’s even parent’s, teacher’s, artists simply said Family.
The world has become smaller with all the social net-working but have we become closer to each other?
I am my brothers keeper and I consider you my family.
