I get so emoceanal baby...

Sigh... I haven't been to the beach for what feels like MONTHS!  I haven't blogged for weeks (months...) but if you are with me on Instagram and/or my Facebook page then you know that I pretty much live at the beach.

Unfortunately a series of events has kept us (sun, sand, sea and me) apart, namely weeks and weeks and weeks (ETERNITY!) of rain.

I swear that my outfit was not planned, despite the oceanic theme! Sea-quins... coral motif skirt... wave-y neoprene necklace... my submarineconscious  dressed me. 

ps. If you care about such things then I am wearing SS15/15 trends; feature shoulders, obi belts, 'rebellious' stripes.

May The Fierce Be with You

#MayTheFourthBeWithYou... Wow. What? As IF you DIDN'T know how much of a Star Wars freak I am?
...have I ever told you about the time I discussed Hinduism's influence on The Force with George [CLANG*] on the set of 'Attack of the Clones' and how his daughter was impressed with my Star Wars knowledge?

[*name drop the mic]

Dusk Devi Star Wars May The Fierce Be With You

I have a lot of 'Star Wars' stuff... I also have a Leia costume.  No, not the one on my t-shirt. The OTHER one.

I wore it to a costume party back when I had no qualms nor 'sk-inhibitions'.  Mine had a matching thigh holster for my lightsaber (Jedi-hards are allowed our modifications).

By the way, if you call it "Leia's slave costume" be prepared to 'force off'. It was Hutt slave costume. It became Leia's armour.

I was 6-7 when Star Wars came out ('77). Leia was my kind of princess. She had me at "aren't you a little short for a Stormtrooper?" ...and then this iconic start to 'Return of The Jedi' ('83) was, for me, all about Leia's mental and intestinal fortitude.

Despite being enslaved, humiliated and tortured by Jabba and while still in chains- she kept her clarity and freed herself.
Without any help and without The Force.

Just The Fierce.

Cuntrary to Popular Opinion.

Published in the inaugural issue of Mai Life STYLE October 2014 and posted here in its unedited, naked entirety.  This post may be deemed NSFW. (but violence and murder and poverty is okay)

"I have written a controversial article about a contentious word... from my liberal feminist point of view. 
Those that know me well know how I feel about the demotion of feminine specific words and terms (eg. "runs like a girl") and this article explores the etymology, history and demotion of this oh so offensive word. I resent its modern derogatory meaning and am baffled by the reactions it gets.... especially considering it is a literal 'channel of life'."
- my words from this post

Cunt-rary to Popular Opinion. A feminist feminine statement by Dusk Devi
Cunt-rary to Popular Opinion. A feminist feminine statement by Dusk Devi
This article will either scandalize or delight you.
I confess, after the initial thrill of the successful pitch (to the MLS Editor), when it came to writing it (for publication! in a magazine in semi conservative FIJI!!) trepidation set in.

I have never shied away from voicing my opinion about this, I feel very strongly about it but suddenly I doubted the importance, the relevance.
Oh my gosh.  This is Fiji.  What will my parents friends think??  What will MY god-fearing friends think?  Will MLS have to have a sealed section??   Would I ever be allowed back in to Fiji?? And can we start a hashtag?

My firm belief in what I believe in went wobbly… for 5 minutes.  Then I remembered a personal motto that evolution needs revolution. The timing for addressing an age-old issue is always now.  My country needs me…
