Imagine... a movement inspired by the arts to open the eyes of Americans to the plight of their own people. Imagine, through art, music and poetry, we are shining a much needed light on our own crisis: HOMELESSNESS
Art4TheHomeless was once a blog called Colors of Ink with Blogcharm, which closed down. Nutang, became the new home of Colors of Ink and was renamed Art4TheHomeless, by a really good friend, Samantha Medd. She is now the Co-Founder of Art4TH.
Now Art4TH is a 501(c)(3) Nonprofit Organization that unites artists of all venues to promote homeless awareness in the US.
Art4TH does this through the Art4TH Webzine, a monthly online magazine that features a musician whose music plays throughout the website, a feature artist, and a feature writer while also featuring a homeless relief organization. All artists featured retain their copyrights and all of it is free. If you would like to be a featured artist, musician, or writer contact me at [email protected]

I dreamt that I was going to die in 6 months
Friday. 5.1.09 7:20 am
I was sleeping so good when this vivid dream came out of nowhere.
My mom and I were at our old house in Louisiana and in the backyard was this pecan tree. In real life the tree is real but in the dream it was at full fruition in April. The pecans were delicious and I was eating them. Our cats, Boing and Fluffer McKitty (real cats but long dead) were also there.
I mean I could actually TASTE the pecans. Boing had his tom cat thing going and had one tooth sticking out over his lip (he would do this in real life) and Fluffer didn't like to be help ( again in real life!)
Anyway, time flew and I had to break the bad news to my mom. I only had six months to live. I was diagnosed with this disease called Shlecks or Schlicks Disease---I don't know if it's a real disease or not but that's how it was pronounced in the dream. Anyway, the disease was caused by eating too many pecans in my childhood!!!
I woke up at 6:23 and did a google search on my phone! Then I got on the computer and did a dream search. According to this website :http://www.experiencefestival.com/a/Dream_Interpretation_Pecans/id/238447
# TO dream of eating this appetizing nut, you will see one of your dearest plans come to full fruition, and seeming failure prove a prosperous source of gain.
# To see them growing among leaves, signifies a long, peaceful existence. Failure in love or business will follow in proportion as the pecan is decayed.
# If they are difficult to crack and the fruit is small, you will succeed after much trouble and expense, but returns will be meagre.
The Pecans were already in fruition and they were not decayed or small. They were their normal size and I can still taste them as if I had just eaten them.
But the 6 months to live part???
And the cats???
Oh and another part of the dream:
I wanted to know what would happen to Art4TH when I died. Right before I woke up, I was sitting at a computer--not my computer--this one was an older model. It was creme/white and I was in a strange room--kinda like my old apartment combined with our old house but my mom and the two cats were with me. I was getting ready to tell everyone in Art4TH that I only had six months to live when I opened my eyes.
Someone else was in the dream. It was an older lady who I have never seen before and she confirmed that this pecan disease that I was diagnosed with had no cure. This lady had long grey hair and wore thick glasses--not the old looking glasses people wore in the 70s but a kinda updated version. She also had brown eyes and was kinda stocky and she wore grey and white clothing maybe a dress I can't remember. She was an older lady and I know I didn't recognize her.
I usually never just wake up like I did this morning: my mind just cleared and I just kinda laid there in shock for a few minutes.
Wow, what a vivid dream. Usually I don't remember dreams at all but this, I remember Boing's course fur, Fluffer's soft fur and green eyes, Boing's macho strut--yes he would strut LOL. And that woman, who are you and why are you invading my sleep???? It's not nice to tell people that they are going to die
The dream had this surreal feel to it and while I was at home with mom eating the pecans, the house, yard, tree and cats,--all of us--were in Atlanta in the present

Jamie Foxx v. Miley Cyrus
Tuesday. 4.14.09 2:17 am
This is pathetic. I have lost my respect for Jamie Foxx. And to the black bitch in the background calling the SIXTEEN YEAR OLD CHILD a little white bitch, yeah I called you a black bitch and I am white.
I hate racism, but why is it when a white person calls a black person a black something or other, we are racists but when black people call a white person something racist its okay?
just see how this works
Friday. 4.10.09 3:00 pm
I have been so frickin busy that time has disappeared. Maybe I need to file a missing persons report LOL
Anyways, ARt4TH was on the news twice I will have the video links up soon and now I am just researching on how to actually launch it as a non profit organization--while working and taking care of mom as well :)

Thursday. 3.26.09 11:18 pm
This has got to stop. My ex keeps emailing me and telling me he loves me. If he did, he wouldn't have disrespected me over and over again so yeah, I dumped him. He keeps emailing me since I won't let anyone off of Nutang comment on my blog and his emails are starting to border on harrassment. So Aditya, since you read my blog,I am saying this here and now.
I wish to be left alone and if you don't I will have to take legal action. I don't want to, but I will. Leave me the hell alone.
Wanna hear how people thought of White America v. Black America?
Thursday. 3.26.09 2:41 pm
I have gotten a LOT of comments on Myspace and even an email. Here is the email I recieved from my former friend. Yeah, he dumped me LOL.
"You should be pissed off at yourself.
IF you choose to believe blatant propaganda that tells you that the US is faced with enemies that seek our destruction, then you are at fault for contributing to the global atmosphere of hate. Do you even know that the US spends more on its military that the rest of the world COMBINED? Who then do we need to fear? No other nation or combination of nations would even think about attacking us. And yet you believe that Russia and Iran and Cuba might attack us? We have a base on Cuba, as you surely must know. Where is the Cuban base in the US? Did you know that Russia is surrounded by US military operations, bases and allies? Where are the Russian allies surrounding us? Cuba? Maybe? Maybe Venezuela. And none of those nations have any reason to attack us. Did you know that Venezuela sends us heating oil to help POOR PEOPLE get through the winter? Did you even know that? I would have thought you would, since you claim to be concerned about the poor.
You should be pissed off at your own ignorance."
Now, where in the post did I mention Venezuela?
It seems to me that I touched a nerve. I am glad his true colors showed and that he is no longer on my friends list. I did try to reply to him, but he blocked me, which showed me that he was very cowardly, as posted by Elegance on myspace, and that he has some serious insecurity problems.
So I want to ask each of you to pray for him and ask God to work on his heart. I am not going to humiliate him on the web or try to "get back" at him, that is pointless.
He was the only one who opposed the post. All the other comments were agreeing and supportive on both Myspace and Nutang.
