The Daffodil Principle
by Jaroldeen Asplund Edwards

Learning to move toward our goals and desires one step at a time--often just one baby-step at a time--learning to love the doing, learning to use the accumulation of time.

When we multiply tiny pieces of time with small increments of daily effort, we too will find we can accomplish magnificient things.  We can change the world.

It is pointless to think of the lost hours of yesterdays. The way to make learning a lesson a celebration instead of a cause for regred is to only ask, "How can I put this to use tomorrow?'

Water your dreams with worry/fear and you will produce weeds that choke the life from your dream. Water them with optimism/solutions and you will cultivate success! Be in the lookout for ways to turn a problem into an opportunity for success and nurture your dream"- Lao Tzu

Monday (Moon-day) has the energy of the ultimate nurturer. How will you nurture 3 dreams that need my love and attention?

The Saartjie Project has garnered international attention for its boundary-stretching stage presentation that explores the mysticism, paradoxes and complexities surrounding the black female body.

Saartjie (pronounced Sar-kay) Baartman - was the South African woman paraded around Europe under the showname,"Hottentot Venus". She was caged to show off her large buttocks, dissected upon her death and placed in a museum. Founding Producer Jessica Solomon explains, "We are extremely excited about the production and are committed to using art as a catalyst of self-expression, self-definition and healing. This is not a performance to missed!"
