Today, February 2nd, is the feast day of Yemenja, Mother goddess of the Oceans, who I first (knowingly) met 7 years ago, during my Sacatar Foundation residency on the island of Itaparica, Bahia, Brazil.
Here’s what I wrote that day -
Okay, there is a lot to process from today -
The Oguns were dancing in the Candomblé house,
There was no air: the room filled instead with drum;
I followed the procession of flowers down to the ocean
And was showered with perfumed waters -
I will add only this:
Candace and I just now walked through a swarm of bats out into the ocean to leave our offering;
and as we turned to walk back, five horses came racing towards us from around the bend,
passed right by, circled in the water, turned round, and headed back….

my loves. just wanna give you all a heads up that I am setting a new boundary with myself where I’m logging into Facebook max once a day now, aiming for lots of full days offline.
Facebook sucks and I wanna be less codependent with it (while still staying connected and maintaining my business and projects and connections). so yeah, I’ll be slower to respond and less active on here from now on.
if you you have witch cabinet questions please send them to my super star assistant ashley@witchcabinet.com
I also recently created a new personal email which I am protecting dearly. if you feel like sending me sweet non-work related emails message me and maybe I will share my special secret new email with you.
I also like snail mail.
and finally, I will be posting alot more updates and evidence of magic and healing on @witchcabinet on Instagram.

“I’ve placed the word capitalism in quotation marks to reflect the reality that this word now covers a wide spectrum of economic activities, very little of which is actually capitalism as classically defined. As I have explained here for over a decade, the U.S. economy is dominated by cartels and quasi-monopolies that are enforced by the Central State, a state-cartel system of financialized rentier skims that has no overlap with Adam Smith’s free market, free enterprise concept,i.e. classical capitalism.
This is what passes for ‘capitalism’ in modern-day America: the super-rich get super-richer, a thin slice of technocrats, speculators and entrepreneurs advance their wealth and the vast majority lose ground or stagnate:

The only way the few can pillage the many is if the many are denied access to competition, open markets and freely flowing capital. All the predatory, parasitic and exploitive systems that hide behind the word “capitalism” skim the wealth of the many into the hands of the few by limiting competition (cartels and monopolies such as sickcare and higher education), controlling markets (you must buy from the state-mandated cartels and monopolies) and and restricting capital to insiders, financial elites and cronies of the state–three terms that describe one elite.
Once the few eliminate competition, open markets and access to capital, the many are enslaved, regardless of how many times the magic words ‘democracy’ and ‘capitalism’ are invoked to cover the systemic exploitation.’

I dedicated much of the previous decade to a project I called All the Saints of the City of the Angels, exploring the 103 streets named for saints in this city (Los Angeles) named for a saint (Nuestra Senora de los Angeles), to see how the stories of the saints crossed paths with the histories of the streets bearing their names.
It was a kind of poetic and metaphorical road trip through LA’s multicultural heritage, introducing me to neighborhoods I’d rarely visited, and shedding light on little-known moments of city history. By the time I finished, in 2008, I’d created over 120 paintings the size of bus shelters (I originally installed some of these paintings IN bus shelters), written dozens of essays and poems about them, and authored a book for Heyday Books that went through two printings and won a handful of nice awards – and had a show of the work at the Autry Museum of the American West.
Kathi Flood has invited me to show a trio of these paintings in her group show, Four Million Angels, opening this Thursday evening, January 25 and running through April 30, at the Annenberg Community Beach House,where I’ll be joining cool colleagues Michael Massenburg and Mark Steven Greenfield, among others.
There’s live music and fine refreshments for the reception, 6-8pm. Come join us!! Info at: https://www.facebook.com/events/130881024262512/

“one of the most common questions i get asked is whether someone is gaslighitng someone else

“one of the most common questions i get asked is whether someone is gaslighitng someone else. i also help folks name conflict as gaslighting when they originally minimized the harm as simply disagreement or misunderstanding.
being able to sense the difference between gaslighting (where harm is caused through abusive power imbalances, which warp our sense of reality) and disagreement (which involves a stable and balanced power dynamic with room for dissonant points of view) is crucially important for being able to discern who it is safe to rest your trust in.”
