With a tribute to Disney and her ”Mouse House,” teen spun superstardom, Miley Cyrus‘ new tattoo says a few things. Following up with her “just breathe” tattoo across her ribs, Smilers new piece in ink on her right ear, says: “Love.”
E! News quotes Smilers as saying: “There’s so much negativity in the world and what you only need to hear is all the love. People try to say to me, ‘I just heard someone say this or that about you,’ and I just ignore it because it’s irrelevant. Love is what makes the world go around, and that’s all we need to focus on.”
[Simbiotic subtext of the still image: Love is in the Air. Love is on The Air. Or more specifically, My Love is On Ear/Air--both funny and clever as a pop star as she says, buy my music and Mickey Mouse's ear looks like this today].
I love this kid. Smilers is always so smart. And dating an Australian, Liam Hemsworth, she also gives a tribute to Baz Luhrmann and Paul Mercurio with the theme song, from their movie about freedom from oppression that can only be found in the dance of one’s own rhythm of a shared life. Here’s some Strictly Ballroom.
And from a teen’s tattoo, to dance and film–if you’d like a “good read” about forbidden young love for a fiesty teen girl character called, Haja bin Kanaan, the same age as Miley, go here to buy the book Courage To Love for good perennial reading. The novel is set on the Gaza strip, where like Cyrus’ fresh ink, Love [too] is in the Air. For a good audio book read, click on this unique book’s cover, for a right treat.

Kia Ora (hello). Some of you are asking me why I don’t write much poetry these days and just blog about celebrities. So this one’s for you. It’s a poem submitted for Whetu Moana Lua, poetry anthology collection of Maori and Polynesian Poets around the world. Editors are: Robert Sullivan, Reina Whaitiri and Dr Albert Wendt. Originally, I wrote for Whetu Moana when being trained by author and professor, Witi Ihimaera, in the art of creative writing.
To enjoy and appreciate my poetry for its inflections of the Maori language, I recommend using this tool, to understand words you may not have heard of before. Being a hori (Maori) in Hollywood is a pioneering thing, so the online Maori dictionary will help any of you LA types reading it.
My poems from Whetu Moana I, are taught in Universities in America (the mainland), New Zealand, Hawaii, the UK and Edinburgh Scotland to name a few. So…. I’m shouting this out to all you guys and dolls today doing English Literature progams around the world. Thanks for reading poetry. And most importantly, may you all continue to write your own poetry too.
Flip the hood to read:
iMaori is the name of my phone
that uses niu media in a hori way
online it searches the Maori dictionary
–the Ngata version, of course.
finding kupu food to enlighten and
illuminate the wairua and mind
it’s also the Maori stork, delivering
in Rei Tu and Rei Pai legendary fashion
fresh pics of pepi, Jake Kereama
he’s of Nga Puhi Tonu Nui descent
was born into a hapu of Whakapara
while his Uncle Hami played Kupe
in a faraway Hollywood land
my phone houses the inner marae walls
held in the crucified palm of my hand
flickering through digitized sepia photographs
of my grandparents and the many greats
who walked in my moccasins long before
jandals were even invented for big hori feet
where their ancient tribal paths meet the axis
of my globalised Maori self, I still hang with them
iMaori brings me Hotere’s vintage wisdom too
of no ordinary sun poetic epiphanies
of a simple life lived with profound thoughts
defining life beyond an economic atomic
There are no ‘enhaloed clouds’ in sight, but
an economic recession sits heavy on the moko (more…)
If you haven’t read Courage To Love yet by author Robert Ellis yet, you should.
It’s a great love story between two young people of differing backgrounds
for our modern times.
