India Ame’ye’s book is available is Amazon :) keyword: India Ame’ye

"You Look Like Something Blooming: A Memoir of Daily Seeds to Cultivate Your Feminine Garden" is available for sale!!!!!!!!
I thought long and hard on how I wanted to introduce my book, and honestly I am too spacey and carefree, fully present in nature, to give a concise introduction. Just simply *insert moaning sounds here*. I waited a few weeks longer to have my book screened by various writer-friends, ex-coworkers, ex-lovers, and 2 people who had never read my work. Words readers used to describe “You Look Like Something Blooming” are:
refreshingly radical…
raw and honest…
damn girl..
i’m blushing….
oh goddess, i am crying…
helps you to think differently..
it’s a great clearing for me…. 
you’re going on Oprah Winfrey….
it really is a love story. …..
What can I say in 2 minutes time:
It’s committing to something, following through, and knowing that you have, as the elders say, “done good’.* It’s very different from getting degrees in a structured environment, being told what to do, an how to do it. It is in indeed taking the jump into your own adventure, living life on your own terms, moving through sadness and depression, and rising wildly in love with many things without conditions.
It’s being in command of your body and pleasure. It’s being courageous enough to think differently and allow those *new* thoughts to heal your body and life, and even the life and body of anyone who encounters you.
It’s listening to spirit, trusting what you feel (spirit), and writing your own damn prescriptions of wild herbs and fresh juices.
It’s tears as orgasms.
It’s self-responsibility: twirling in the high command that you create your life and being courageous enough to re-create something else…to return those “old” stories back to love.

Fox 8 Cleveland angry with LKWD Music Fest after Communist musician calls for end to capitalism on live TV

FOX is tiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight

FOX News: “Well, Boots, tell us a little bit about your band and the lineup people are going to hear today?” asked Fox 8 reporter Autumn Ziemba.

RILEY: Well, we’re a punk/funk/Communist revolution band.

FOX News: OK.

RILEY: And we are from Oakland, California, and we make everyone dance while we’re telling them about how we need to get rid of the system.

FOX News: Mmm.

RILEY: How exploitation is the primary contradiction in capitalism. And that if we want to express our power, we’re going to have to be more radical in our actions.

this is an all-Black band, from Oakland, and they’re called "The Coup." *buys CD*

Watch Fox News lose control

black excellence fucking up more white-controlled media
