Fascinating PPL (inst1) with Mari J. Brooklyn at Kasa De Kalae

If I could describe Mari J. Brooklyn in one word it would be "Alienklondikescrumtiousolisious." There's something about this Japanese doll that's hard to recover from. A stranger walked into my home, and a cousin left. I will remember her fondly always. Her daughter Lino? Don't even get me started. I wanted to keep her and beat her all in the same sitting. She's a rare kind of child, a precious gem, a diamond in the rough if you will, and you will see that in the compilation of photos below. I really wish there was a better format to show you these pictures. Each one deserves attention. They tell a story. This is the pictorial of Mari J. Brooklyn and Lilo. If a picture is worth a thousand words, get ready for this Illiad.

Q: What makes a person fascinating?

Mari J.: When I see and feel I never felt before. like someone take me higher, show me something or let me hear anything inspired by my 6senses .
that make me turn me on and melting. 

Q: Who's the most fascinating person you've ever shot and why would you kill them???

Mari J.: shot ? my sexy boys.. why ? I could tell how I get fire and beauty inside them.

Q: Aren't kids annoying?

Mari J.: sometimes , sometimes not.

Q: IS Hip Hop bigger than my nigga? And most importantly, is it bigger than Religion?

Mari J.: Hip hop is culture. its not religion. but a lot of people get influence by hiphop. like what I did.

Q: Why should I move to Brooklyn?

I feel comfortable stay in Brooklyn cause I love black music since i was 15years old. I can enjoy being living brooklyn and feel Reggae and Hip Hop vibes from Here.

"My other secret is 
I can dance with fire..
I got poi from Thailand 2000 and I learn 6months in Thailand , India and Indonesia. Then I went to out side Rave Party in Japan by hitch hiking. I went to Hokkaido ( North of Japan) and upgrade fire dance 2004."

Word Associations!

Kalae's Citrus LOVE Juice Recipe

Im in a bit of a situation today because I want to continue juicing but I have my period. My ladies will understand this.. The cramping, the fatiguing, the bloating, the mood swings-all I really want is some pizza and ice-cream and FRENCH FRIES (these are my kryptonites). I feel like I'm being tested right now and I really want to come out victorious! I need to figure out what I can juice to get through this-im thinking cantaloupe with coconut water and pear or something along those lines. Ill figure it out. (Few hours later) So I went to the supermarket and I got a bunch of citrus fruits-for some reason they were calling to me and I came up with this AMAZING juice. I think its more of a morning time juice but I drank it at like 8 or 9p but what evs. This is gonna help me go on to day 6 and that's all that matters!

Kalae's Citrus LOVE Juice Recipe

5 clementines
1 lime
1 blood orange
2 pears

Mind Over Matter

"The Quality of life is in proportion, always, to the capacity for delight."

(Picture courtesy of Ko-Shin Musica follow her 92-day juice fiesta journey on HER BLOG)

Yesterday I was asked "Why are you going on a juice cleanse?"
I thought this was really interesting because I've never really heard that question before. Usually "Im going on a juice cleanse" leads to responses like "Good for you!" "Nice, what are you juicing?" "You're just gonna drink JUICE?" But never a why. I was really unprepared for the question so I simply answered,
"Because I want to."

I don't think that I'm doing a juice cleanse, I think the juice cleanse is doing me and I have no idea what to expect and what benefits I will receive from this venture. All I know is that I made the immediate commitment to do it as soon as it crossed my mind that's a sign of personal growth for me. I tend to come up with a lovely idea and if I get to it within a year I'd consider it to be timely :) I'm now executing like I never have before and I'm impressed with myself. Go KALAE! Hahaha. Im also under the impression that on some level I've lost control. I think all of us have in some way or another and this is a common way to get back on track. Mind over matter. I control my body, my body does not control me. Of course the aim is to connect mind, body and soul into one powerful, magnetic and godlike creature, but this can only be done once the lion is tamed. Then you control the roar and that's what you need to find balance.

This is only my third day on my juice cleanse but this is what I've been feeling so far. Clarity, connectedness, presence, awareness, compassion, understanding, lightness, energy, awake, a live, invigorated, plentifulness, contentment and discipline. Now I've felt all of these things before, at any individual time and place-maybe because of exterior influences or my natural positive light from the inside--but this light inside is growing---or rather, I'm peeling back the layers of darkness that have gathered over and around it along the years and letting my true sparkle shine through. We all have these things inside of us waiting to thrive consistently and at all times and not just once in a while when something "good" happens to us. I read an amazing quote in "The Artist's Way" yesterday that said "The Quality of life is in proportion, always, to the capacity for delight."
"The Quality of life is in proportion, always, to the capacity for delight."
"The Quality of life is in proportion, always, to the capacity for delight."

I am not only juicing but I am meditating, doing morning pages, going on artist date's and artist walks (as per "The Artist's Way" by Julia Cameron). I think meditation is the best thing anyone can do for themselves. If you do nothing else with yourself, with your day, with your life, please meditate. And if you think you can't do it, if you struggle through it, if you don't enjoy it-guess what?
YOU NEED IT THE MOST. Stick with it. You will notice change.
