Today I feel a little crazy, and I know what will make shiz betta-

Jazz Hands!
and making all food rainbow-
all pop stars Katy-
a medical intervention of neon proportions-
leaving us in Wonka Vision-unstoppable and unable to fade.
The glitterati take over-
a tasty new life-loud in the best way-
jeweled, and unafraid of being called pretentious.
Space ship serenades,
and candy landscapes-no fear of cavities.
Marie Antoinette back to life with no furniture decorum.
Unafriad-armed with more than words and spellbound bar stamps-
no ink, all koolaid kitten tattoos leaving no regret.
Techno majesty rising to power- no party allegiance or lies.
Only the good kind of floss,
and candy cakes sans fondant,at our big fat gypsy weddings that end without a trailer or double standard relationship-It's all technicolor love.
Today, Refuse to be taupe!

Walking Heavy: Vietnam War

Made this video for my dad-best person I know. Had 3 tours in Vietnam-Special Forces, Rangers, and then went to MAC V school and was a Long Range Recon small team soldier. They were behind enemy lines, highly specialized, and very brave.
War seems to write it's terrible name on the heart of everyone it touches, but I know the bonds made between soldiers there are the purest form of trust imaginable. It's an incredible thing inside of something unimaginably heart breaking.
I wish the quality was better thru youtube, but I'm still happy with it.

As to the meaning of "Walking Heavy", here is the origin-
"Heavy Drop" is a system of delivery of supplies in a military setting with a parachute. It was also the nick name of a close friend of my father's from the war who passed away about a year ago.
The term "Heavy" is also used in the military for machines that carry large loads on their own.
The large majority of the military operations done by recon soldiers is all on foot for days at a time.
"Walking Heavy" is a morphed term from all these things. If you walk heavy, you are weighted down by the things you hold inside yourself.
