Combining the eloquence and raw sensuality of Jeanette Winterson with the romantic, renegade spirit of Patti Smith, Further Out Than You Thought is a taut and erotically charged literary debut, set against the chaos of the 1992 L.A. riots, about three people searching for identity and meaning from award-winning poet and indie bookshop co-founder Michaela Carter.
In the Neverland that is Los Angeles, where make-believe seems real, three dreamers find themselves on the verge of transformation. Twenty-five-year-old poet Gwendolyn Griffin works as a stripper to put herself through graduate school. Her perpetually stoned boyfriend Leo dresses in period costume to hawk his music downtown, and seems to be losing his already tenuous grip on reality. And their flamboyant best friend and neighbor, nightclub crooner Count Valiant, is slowly withering away.
When the city explodes in violence after the Rodney King verdict, the chaos becomes a catalyst for change. Valiant is invigorated, Leo plans a new stunt—walking into east L.A., naked, holding a white flag—and Gwen, discovering she is pregnant, is confronted by troubling questions. Can Leo become a good, dependable father? Can she leave the club life behind, or will the city’s spell prove too seductive?
Combining poetry and sensuality with an edgy urban sensibility, Further Out Than You Thought is a celebration of life and a haunting story of love, friendship, and one woman’s quest for redemption.

HOW TO UNDERSTAND THE DYNAMICS OF YOUR CREATIVE EXPRESSION.
Transcendentalism represented a complex answer to the democratization of American life, the growth of science and technology, and a new kind of industrialism--to the whole question, in short, of the redefinition of the relationship between man and nature and other men that was being demanded by the course of history.
Alluding to the Platonic triad, Emerson spoke of the oversoul , eternal source of beauty, truth, and good, and exhorted men to search for that spirit or fundamental principle that rules nature and of which men partake. The quest for this spiritual state that "transcends" the physical and empirical world is only possible through intuition and the subordination of men to the eloquence of nature, and not through established religious doctrines or through reason or sensory experience alone .
According to Emerson, even though all human beings are called to a profound communion with nature in their search for the oversoul, the artists are the ones to fulfill this search by giving new forms to beauty in nature, beauty being "the herald" of the triad . Thus, art is the "result or expression of nature, in miniature, a nature passed through the alembic of man" . Then, the more artists submit and lend themselves to be interpreters of this superior principle manifest in nature, the closer they are to truth, good, and beauty combined in the work of art. In a search which is strictly personal, artists pursue independence, faith in themselves, and self reliance, and endeavor to achieve the best version of the self in communion with the superior and transcendental Being, the divinity that lies in every natural fact and in every individual, believing in the need of establishing an intimate relationship between the self and the universe in terms of a search both for self-knowledge and knowledge of the world.

Corinthians 13:1 Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.
If you love mekeep my commandments, John 14:15

The History of Christianity #13
Our Scripture verse today is Acts 4:33 which reads: "And with great power gave the apostles witness of the resurrection of the Lord Jesus: and great grace was upon them all."
Our quote today is from Timothy Keller. He said, "The early church was strikingly different from the culture around it in this way - the pagan society was stingy with its money and promiscuous with its body. A pagan gave nobody their money and practically gave everybody their body. And the Christians came along and gave practically nobody their body and they gave practically everybody their money."
Today, we are discussing "The Church In Jerusalem" (Part 1) from Justo L. Gonzalez's fine book, The Story of Christianity (Volume 1).
The Book of Acts affirms that from the very beginning there was a strong church in Jerusalem. But then that very book moves on to other matters, and tells us very little about the later history of that Christian community. The rest of the New Testament offers a few other bits of information. But it, too, deals mostly with the life of the church in other parts of the empire. Yet, by piecing together what the New Testament tells us with information gathered from other authors, one can come to a general idea of the life of that earliest Christian community and its later history.
Unity and Diversity
The earliest Christian community is often idealized. Peter's firmness and eloquence at Pentecost tend to eclipse his wavering on what ought to be done with the Gentiles who wished to join the church. The possession of all things in common, commendable as it may be, did not abolish all tensions between various groups, for "the Hellenists murmured against the Hebrews because their widows were neglected in the daily distribution."
A red light or sign means STOP because we have decided red would be our warning color, yellow is CAUTION and green is GO when we drive walk or run. In this same manner or color code, the melanin rich African ancients traveling the world making sure the people of the earth remembered and understood when seeing anyone like them [black in color] they could without exception anticipate wisdom and acumen, right judgment, scientific and spiritual direction by way of example, eloquence of speech and moral character from those highly intelligent black people. We must reclaim this history. Black is beautiful and intelligent and a gift to see God.
We will discuss the matter of melanin this week on I was just thinking...with your host Ekowa
J. Spencer: Bass Player/Producer/Vocalist
With a music career spanning over two decades, J. Spencer has been a well recognized fixture in the South Florida Music scene. The journey started for J as the original founding member and lead vocalist/bass player for the group HASHBROWN a high energy, funk core power trio that was a force to be reckoned with in the late 90’s and into the 2000’s. The group garnered critical success and managed to open for a diverse range of acts including Method Man, Rick James, Fishbone, Sheryl Crow, and the godfather of soul himself, James Brown, who’s encouraging words of “keep funkin’” served as fuel for his musical journey. Linking with friend and Producer Jon to form the electro-vintage pop duo, COTTON & HATE, the duo’s indie release “reverse” was an eclectic array of uptempo electro retro funk jams spawned from a 2 week impromptu recording session that allowed J the ability to vocally explore new sonic landscapes via Jon’s production. J also collaborated with former Hasbrown guitarist Duncan Cameron to form Black & Tan, an ode to their love of acoustic folk and country soul. The duo’s country space odyssey WEST OF WEST and the followup PORCH, were full of soulful songs of isolation, lost love, and underdog anthems, that contrasted the bombastic energy of earlier projects with truthful acoustic eloquence. A drive to return to performing live and the call for a bassplayer via a friend of a friend led to being the bassplayer and musical director for Community Property, a high energy funk-rock four piece who's sound is best described as Otis Redding meets Van Halen.
