What you can DO about the humanitarian border crisis:

Yall I am sick as fuck about the border crisis. This is abomniable and makes me want to go there and protest with my body and soul. I dont have the resources to do this and it’s breaking my heart. Same as the Standing Rock pipeline, indigenous and brown people are suffering because of our lifestyles and silent compliance (and racism, corporatocracy, patriarchy and exploitative capitalism.) I just ate at Fiesta Grill the other day and here we are, eating Mexican food while migrant families are being torn apart and subjected to trauma at the border of our country.. I wanted to know what I can do since I cant go to the border and found several resources I am sharing here. We can NOT let those in power let this go on. Silence IS compliance. Please use these resources and CALL YOUR REPS, hell go VISIT THEM IN RALIEGH. I’ll organize a lobby day. Message me and we’ll make a plan. Here are the other ways to help I’ve found:

Also, if you have some kind a theoretical argument that you want to reply to this post as a response, save it. I don’t have time to read about your opinion. Go be complacent somewhere else.

Sacred Days – Fundraiser story

https://www.gofundme.com/f/anitalorrainemooresacredalbumrecording

Hello my dearest Community,

Literally all my life people have said to me, “Anita, seriously, why aren’t you pursuing music and singing professionally?” This year, I am doing just that (and more…) and started the recording phase of my first full-length album entitled Surrendering To The Sacred Demos .  I’m so excited about this project and your help is key in making it real!  Last summer with everyone’s help, I quit my Summer job waiting tables and I completed all the demos (listen by clicking the link above) and finished up the songs themselves. Then I started working in the fall with my 9th year with Democracy Matters, mentoring young political organizers to get big money out of politics and this past Spring, I also started teaching Critical Thinking at Alamance Community College. 

I really don’t want to badger people all the time, so I don’t send out emails… basically ever.  However, if everyone I know donated $5, I could most definitely cover most production and recording costs. Facebook only reaches some folks I know and this blog is more personal, I hope. 

So here’s the breakdown:  It’s $40 an hour for recording in the studio and with production/reproduction it adds up to about $5200+ for the project.  I’ve raised about $1520 so far over the last 2 months!  I’ve been working extra hard to save and performing shows. I’ve been putting all I make into a jar!  I even started another side-gig reading tarot cards (another side-passion of mine since I was a teenager) to raise extra dough.  

If you can help, You have until the album is in production to donate! 

5% of the fundraiser goes to https://www.rainn.org/  As a sexual abuse and incest survivor myself, I have dedicated this album to all the brave people who have come forward in recent years to stand up for themselves and others, in hopes to emancipate our world from the same violent oppression.  My name change from Kinney to Moore (my grandparents’), June 26, 2018, is a direct result of these experiences. Amazing what’s in a name.  

RAINN (Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network) is the nation’s largest anti-sexual violence organization. RAINN created and operates the National Sexual Assault Hotline (800.656.HOPE) in partnership with more than 1,000 local sexual assault service providers across the country.

So much love yall. This last year has been transformational.  Through therapy and self-healing work I have been called to encapsulate my life experience through the making of art, music and this sacred album, thriving and growing into a whole, creative human.

I thank all of you for your support and love,

Anita Lorraine Moore

Thanks y’all for all the support!

William Billy Ransom Hobbs and Me, sometime in 2006 or 2007… He was the kindest, gentlest, most passionate person I think I’ve ever met. His Spirit guides me as I see it and I’m so lucky to have been around for that incarnation of his soul.

Magnet poetry

Attract and Repel – a course on Magnets and Love

 

The cultivating wind

The invisible, energetic wind of attraction and repellency of excessive leaning in

~

Magnets: the simple, celestial, holy machines, shine light on the infinite, wisdom of our being, 

the truth about yearning

~

Our being is One within forcefields of Rhythm and Grace.

Push two poles into one place?

No matter how positive, how soul-sculpting, perfectly mirroring, or harmonious, 

To mate these charged particles is futile, simply erroneous.

They repel, are driven away, forced to submit 

to the science of magnetism and Her boundless wit

~

I am an eternal butterfly in the lessons of this humbling wind. 

She is stronger than me

and brings me past my knees, 

my aching, hungry lips to the ground in gratitude

for the wind, she blows my spirit ever forward, “Submit woman, your restless, tenacious attitude!”

~

No matter what brightly hot fires burn within, as the flames lick the air indiscriminately, 

the glorious, steeped wind breaks my leaning rigidity.  

Always the wind teaches me to bend, but not too far She said

for the forces of All-Existing-Everything pulls me down and out of the stars instead

~

If I bend, only enough to be lifted, now breathe, adjust

to another who contains the true, attractant pulse

only if within the Vertical realm I am consciously aligned

Will the sacred wind of atoms be satisfied, inclined

To let me have the present moment, to Feel the subtle push

Of my lover standing tall, admiring the butterfly bush

From where I eat, from where I fly

We stand together, guided by the wind, our love, now amply, divinely justified

_
