We all have to answer to our own coach and the uniqueness of our journey....When I die I want to have hopefully achieved Bohemian All Star Status....Dionysius and Zorba The Greek come to mind...SoulSurfing the planet funk of one's life and journey to HelpOthers forst and foremost and to always QUESTION and to quest for LOVE and Live To LOVE and see everyone as FAMILY and know that Less Is More...to know in the bones of the roots of the poetry of one's beating heart.
That SoulSurfing is a constant craft, rebirth, fail, go back do again, wave.....breathe....wave.
The concentrated marrow ..the aka SoulEspresso.
Happy Monday from the land of RAD....concentrated marrow...I like that analogy...to seek and rest at the sametime...the birth and death..that is creativity that is the Art Of LIFE.

• the mind is limited - for it can only see the partial 👁 contradictions is our creation. with our eyes we can only see the aspect, never the whole 🌕 we never see anything in totality, because the mind can not see totality in anything. ✨ when the mind is dropped and meditation has arisen ~ then you see the total. then you see the whole as it is, all the aspects together ⚡️🌐
Uncertainty, risk, emotional exposure, vulnerability is the universal principle that guides every decision. The seeding to transform, to all that we create, to feel the oneness of things, vulnerability requires one to carry their wounds gracefully. Vulnerability unfolds around the concept of truth.
The moment the invitation came to exhibit for this project can be likened to that of the holy instant of knowing. Knowing that you're ready for personal challenge. The personal challenge to leave what I know and use a technique I've never used. And so the embarkment, into uncharted lighting and settings to what's called Low Key Lighting. A technique that creates simplistic, depthful and velvety monotone feel.
Local Love Exhibit opens in less than two weeks in VºLITION GALLERY at Bell-ans Center of Creative Arts. I'm excited to show this new work and honored to have had the role of curating the exhibit.

Creation — Allow yourself to create. Whether it's art, business or an social initiative. When your create, you accept yourself as a unique person with your own valuable thoughts, needs, strengths and weaknesses. It is a path to your inner self, muting the image imposed by society.
