July 19, 2006Normally I smirk when I hear the term 'goddess'. Then there is Nicollee. She has amazing energy, she is sexy and gorgous, she's an awesome hooper, a talented actor, stage presence for days, and she can dance. However what elevates her head and shoulders above others is her bravery (and I'm not just talking about wearing a feather and sparkle mask while driving a bright red VW in heavy traffic), resolve, and wisdom. Mess with my kid sis and I'll kick your ass sideways, take your lunch money, and shave your dog!
December 5, 2005possessing of epic trans-millenial beauty and game
eyes that hypnotize and fire inside
that draws one in like moth to a flame.
yet beyond the burning beauty that sears
is a heart, a home, and a space for my tears.
i pledge allegience to this soul beyond years,
and i promise that just a glimpse so very fleeting
will leave your heart so very rapidly beating
I literally had the most amazing fire dancing experience, and I wanted to share it with y'all. We had a huge family reuinion last night, cousins and aunties and uncles galore, and I fire danced for everyone. I wanted a way to connect to all my relatives and share how I live my life and have them understand the artistic expression and adventure that is me. Before I danced, people were a bit reserved in talking to me and even judgemental, but afterwards, everyone just opened up to me! It was really amazing-- I found myself in conversations about politics and religion and philosophy and traveling and the importance of artistic expression for everyone.Sun, July 30, 2006 - 9:52 AM permalink - 7 comments
One of my cousins asked me what was my message in my fire dancing because he saw something, and I told him that I wanted to bring to people the ability to think as an individual, make choices from their heart, and artistically express whatever is going on inside. It feels so incredible to share this reality with people who live in a country and society where they strictly follow the catholic religion and the rules of family, and to break from it is very challenging. Anyways, I could go on and on, but it was the most powerful experience I've ever had with fire.
What I learned from last night was this--
As fire dancers we hold very powerful tools in our hands, and people will listen to us...so what do we have to say?
All my love and hugs and fire wishes from Philippines,
