True Dat Yo..True Dat!

Ghetto Bible

The Ten Commandments from the Ghetto Bible! This is RAD!

1. I beez God. Don' beez dissin me wit otha godz.
2. Don' beez makin no hood ornaments like nothin in my crib, anythang upstayrs, orr anythang anywherz elz.
3. Don' beez usin my name 'n a wack way - homey don' play dat.
4. Y'all betta be keepin da sabbathh.
5. Don' dis ya mama ... an if ya know whoz ya daddy beez, don' dis him neither.
6. Don' cap ya bros.
7. Don' cheat on ya babies' mama.
8. Don' be liftin no goods.
9. Don' be lyin an' snitchin on ya homies.
10. Don' be eyein' ya homie's crib, ride, or nothin.

My favorite is #5, and a close second would be #6! I tried to find the whole bible in ghetto but came up with nothin'!

Sigh...good movie...sad and good and beautiful and tragic. When we are touched by injustice on a personal level, we will never be the same. I am deeply troubled by this feeling that I can never do enough...it just never seems to be enough...

Blue


I sometimes feel like I have so much inside that needs to be expressed, but no outlet to express it. I live with this "on-the-edge" of something state, kind of like the day today.

The sky is SO blue, the sun is SO warm, the snow is SO white, you can HEAR spring melting through the icy cold of winter, bubbling up and waiting to explode on the earth in green and brown, in new life, in shedding of layers...oh the freedom! It's just there, ready and waiting..

That's how I feel. Dying to shed my layers..I am chasing the spring, longing to explode with the sun, to empty myself into the blue of this sky. It's as though something is ready and waiting for me, I can sense it with all of my being, but it's somehow always just a day away, like the coming of spring. Maybe, just like the seasons changing, one day, I'll discover I am suddenly in the midst of it, alive, warm and free, surrounded by all the green and brown, the new life, discovering a way to explode into the blue.

Yes, maybe...
