This is, so far, one of the most joyful summers of my life. Everything is going in divine order with me. I am experiencing some of the most surprising and pleasant synchronicities. Of course, there have been some things that I allowed to pull me right out of this vortex of good feeling.
I’m not talking about the mysterious bugs that are feasting on the leaves of my broccoli rabe, or the sweltering heat and stifling humidity that keep me inside when I would rather be in my garden. I’ve got recalcitrant ivy that needs to be pulled away from the garage wall so I can scrape and paint it before winter arrives. The rain makes that area too wet or the sun makes standing there with my clippers unbearable. That’s okay though. I’ll get to it. But the trial of George Zimmerman, and the verdict that absolved him of any wrong doing in shooting 17-year-old Treyvon Martin left many of us numb and unable to stay on track, even if we were having an amazing summer.

Akilah: The story that we tell about money is based on the dominant belief system of lack, limitation and scarcity. You ask that we begin to tell a different story. Are you suggesting that the new story will create a new life experience?
Charles: Yes. The longer answer is you have to ask who is the storyteller, and part of the situation that the world faces is that we see ourselves as separate individuals so when I say who is the storyteller, what I am saying is that you as a separate individual are not the only author of the story. Therefore, it’s not just as simple as changing your own beliefs. The story of money is a collective story, and also we each have a personal story of money ...
The explosion of research in neuroscience shows us the importance and the possibility of evolving the human brain at this time in history. We are on an evolutionary step, and each one of us can participate in creating a whole new human being. Evolving your brain is like an upgrade that can produce a better functioning human being. We can evolve the brain from its old, habitual programming which is based on “survival” and danger, to with new possibilities of connection ...

I'm dividing my time between freelance web and graphic design, a 9-to-5 Graphic/Layout Designer position at the SF Media Co., teaching Introductory WordPress and HTML/CSS classes at the Bay Area Video Coallition, going to see my favorite bands, and playing videogames. I spend at least 90% of my waking life staring at one screen or another. It's probably not entirely healthy.

I just opened up my own studio in Brooklyn, NY. I’m setting up, and learning how to get around on the train. This is a dream come true. The Universe said Brooklyn is the place, and the time is now!
