On the Road with Gina Taye: Queen of the States and 12 Months of Creativity


It has been a crazy seven months. I have completed seven pieces of art as well as seven pieces of poetry. I know…I have not written a book a month. Almost but no cigar. Now it may end up differently at the end of the these twelve months of delving into my creative self.

 

However, I have been unable to document the entire process. During my journey of creativity I have come to want more and more for freedom from the prison I have lived in my entire life, my body; thus, the title “On the Road with Gina Taye: Queen of the States.” I have started a YouTube Show, airing every Sunday night at 11:11 on my channel GenderMoon, called “The Sunday Evening Report at 11:11 with Gina Taye”. Who is Gina Taye, Gina is the character, drag/impersonator, I created back during my time in college. A vision of a documentary I would like to make has recently taken over my every waking moment: “Forgotten Flowers: Transgender in the U.S.A.” So much has happened. I appeal to you to click on the titles and check out all the is going on with my creative journey and where it has taken me.

Thank You

Peace, Light, and Love

PLACE: Ferg’s

EVENT: Mimi Johnson’s The Triple Threat

Chef kerry jones

I rather fancied the high fashion, elegantly displayed art. the atmosphere is welcoming and entertaining. three hd tvs looked down upon the bar which I must add is mirrored the full length, crisp and pristine, lined with cleaned and brilliantly decorated bottles of the low and high-end of various adult liquid libations. catches the eye immediately.

upon arriving we did have a difficult time finding parking;thus my earlier stated concern. however once inside i am a little more relaxed. it is not my car in the first place for i have come upon this journey with snd because of my mother.normally i tried to avoid situations with my mother where she is involved with alcohol.

mocha blue blaze-colorfully dressed sporting a bond gorgeous seventies like fro. her spoken and beautifully toned sung piece of love.3 1/2 out of 5 stars.(her delivery and observation of beat and rhythm was righteous.

diva Tyler(comedic actress)bright blonde hair hilarious African American woman. her delivery was spot on.cracked me up. 3 1/2 out of 5 stars on her performance.

Debbie grace-singer(while you are alone-first song written and performed by Debbie): pitch and tone is way off. applaud her courage to do her music, however in my opinion I feel this song might best be performed by a stronger, vocally, person.

 

second song-slightly better with in her range and key still however pitchy

12 Months of Creativity: Poetry Book Month One; Progress


I am trucking along with the book. I am rather pleased with my progress.
As promised here is a sample:

“I have wandered
aimlessly and at times
in a self induced
mind altering
haze.
I am not ashamed
nor do I regret
any moment in the past.
I appreciate
what each
experience brought;
adding to the content
of me.”

It is coming along nicely.
Enjoy and have a blessed day.
Peace, light, and love

12 months of creativity: Poetry book, month one


Body drained of lives ocean
leaving the flesh in need of lotion.
The spirit is battered by delusions of completion.
The beauty in trust is misguided,
broken,  and used against the heart.
Deciet in the past, deciet in the present has crippled todays mind.
Fear of sucess, of failure, of not being good enough or worth anything has ruled far to long.
Lorde sooths the pain that coarse through the heart.

As promised the exert above is from a poem in month one’s poetry book. It should give you a glimse into the content and theme of the book. Enjoy! I should have some snapshots of art in progress some time before Monday.
Thank you coming and checking in on whats going on with the challenge; I grately appreciate each and everyone of you. Your continued support lifts me up; and encourages me to continue in my endeavors.
PEACE, LIGHT, and LOVE TO EACH AND EVERYONE.
May your day be blessed and your weekend rejuvinating.
BLESSED BE

12 Months of art and creativity(poetry and art) Challenge


To all my fellow readers and followers/fans please be advised the challenges is still on; I have, to say the least, been otherwise preoccupied. The poetry is in my head as is the art. Now to bring it to life. I am aware I promised pics in earlier post and as promised when the process of bringin each to life unfolds I will visually document it in its entirety. I am human and one that many times takes a while ,many of times, to follow through with their word or promise. My intentions are of the purest nature. I strive for good each day; however when it comes to myself I still have a great deal of crap to let go of ( I am working on it)
In closing I truly love and appreciate each and every person who has supported me by reading and or following my blog.
PEACE, LIGHT, AND LOVE TO YOU ALL.

Month 1 of my new quest; 12 months of art and poetry


How goes it everyone. To my readers I hope all is well with you thank you for taking the time to check in and see how my journey goes. All is well thus far and on schedule, my new job washing dishes has taken up a great deal of my time here recently, but I am just about adjusted the schedule and the routine. I must add, I am truly grateful for my new job and I absolutely love it. I am on the front lines in sanitation of the restaurant and if I do not do my job efficiently and accurately then disease and sickness can eventually become an issue. I take great pride in that.

Back to month one of my journey to reignite that which burns so bright deep within; my creativity. This month is about the season; about giving and receiving; about the joy in all that is. This month I will be working a piece that will show the holidays. I do not need any help this month in materials, for I have a majority of what I need. I will be putting up pictures Tuesday 12/10/2013 of my current progress on the piece.

As far as the poetry book of the month I am still toying with two different themes. I will update as soon as I have something concrete.

Trying to watch a new anime my husband found and write is proving difficult, especially when it is pretty darn good. Check it out, “Log Horizon.” I am diggin’ it. Thanks again to all my fans, readers, and followers. Your support and time is appreciated and valued. Without your investment and interest my voice would remain silent and the story of me would go unnoticed. I am humbled and in your debt you have my greatest gratitude. Be Blessed, Much Peace, Light, and love to you all.
