If you want to write or make something,  I have a few tips for you.
First, dump anything that comes to mind onto chalkboard or paper. By their nature, these are rough sketch tools, so you never have to feel any pressure up-front.
That’s critical.
Flow and play with pencil and chalk, until you feel you have enough. Then stop and rest for a while. Let the ideas rest in your head like bread dough rising on the counter.
Any idea you’ve had to date will only get better with a little time and rest, a day at least.

Next, sit down and apply heat to your brainstorm. Bake your bread. See what holds up under fresh-eye examination. Also, see what new stuff might come into mind. From here, the next job is to sew these ideas together in some flow that makes sense.
With refined notes, organized now with a clear through-line and unified message, you’re ready to sit down and play.
That’s what I learned about trying to be creative. The final stage, where you take a picture, or write, or draw, or record, or talk...That has to feel like the easy part. Just like play.
If anything feels like work you did it wrong. Apply this method and see what flows. Yes, even "boring" stuff...Especially boring stuff.
I'm putting this into practice now - Level 1. You’ll be able to give me feedback very soon. Mixing ingredients for a 4th book.

Ted was diagnosed with Stage 2 Hodgkin’s lymphoma in February after having several swollen lymph nodes removed under his left jaw. He is now a few radiation treatments away from being cancer free, and wanted to give a special shoutout to Dr. Denise Levitan and her team.
“Finished a final round of chemotherapy today, and took a huge step toward beating a cancer diagnosis I received earlier this year. There are quite literally too many people to thank here in one post, but I want everyone to know how genuinely fortunate I feel to have a tremendous group of friends & family to lean on, to have an equally supportive work family at the @chicagofire, and to have had access to top-notch care at @advocatehealth Illinois Masonic 🔔 If there was ever a time to whip out this hashtag, it’s now: I am truly #blessed 🙏”

I have openings for one on one posing sessions and also Skype sessions available for those that are interested! Shoot me an email at [email protected] to schedule 💌

The process I’ve adopted for sculpting involves a ton of work in the final wax stage, which is why there haven’t been a lot of sculpt teasers until now. Now that he’s done, he’s headed off to @oneuptoy - who will be producing this guy. I will, of course, be doing painted versions and blank versions myself, but large release runs will be handled by Oneup and their production staff in Japan - with plenty of releases at their event tables and in their online shop (a la the releases of @shinichirokato ‘s recent awesomeness). Stay tuned! #rampagetoys #oneuptoy #sofubi #madeinjapan #日本製

I’m in the home stretch of final edits with my book and at this stage, the only real edits I’m supposed to make are small tweaks like fixing typos, but of course now that I’m seeing it in its entirety, I want to rewrite the whole damn book! I could work on my book for another 10 years and would probably still want to make changes. Self-doubt is such a beast and right now I’m bathing in it. But here’s the thing: it doesn’t matter whether this book becomes a NYT bestseller or ends up in the discount book bin at a garage sale. What matters is that I visualized it, believed in myself enough to start, committed myself to seeing it through, and ultimately, I made it fucking happen! I WROTE MY FIRST BOOK! Not to mention I wrote it while I was navigating my way through pregnancy and now I’m editing it with a newborn in my arms, so its very existence is pretty damn miraculous. Time to stop obsessing over every word and tell my inner asshole to go shove it, because I know the finished product is something I can be very proud of.

First and foremost, the residents of Low End Theory would like to offer our sincerest gratitude for the nearly 12 years of support. It has been an honor and privilege to serve in the capacity we have, rocking over 600 Wednesdays at the Airliner in Lincoln Heights, as well as various tours and spot dates across the US, Asia, Europe and Africa. To every artist who has blessed our stage, we are grateful. To every person who has joined us on the dancefloor, you are the primary source of inspiration for making Low End Theory happen every Wednesday since October 2006.

The journey has not been without its challenges. It is therefore with a sense of sadness that we are announcing our last ten shows, starting tonight at the Airliner in Lincoln Heights, with the final Low End Theory planned for August 8. There are several factors affecting this decision. Family obligations. Work demands. Life. The general consensus amongst the residents is that we have overstayed our welcome, and our greatest hope now is that the final ten weeks of Low End Theory can serve as a time for the beat community to set aside our differences, come together, and hopefully remember what made Low End Theory a special place to begin with: the music.

Very truly yours,

He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end." I applied for a job in September. Got to the top 2 of the interview stage, at that point I was pretty sure the job was mine. I had killed my presentations, I was feeling pretty good you know. Then I got an email, with the dreaded opening lines "Thank you for coming in for the final interview, however at this time we will not..." So yes, I didn't get job. I was so heart broken. I couldn't understand how this could have happened. But after much encouragement from my parents and my prayer buddie, Yeu, I gave it over to God and let it go.
So 3 weeks ago I got a call from the organisation and they asked if I would be interested in taking the position in January. I couldn't believe it. But God!  I was definitely not expecting it. All this to say the biggest lesson I've been learning is patience. Not yet, is not a no. God's timing is always perfect. This was also a beautiful reminder that God is always in control and knows what we need and when we need it. Also if I had gotten the job that first time I would have credited my "great" presentation. But now God gets all the glory, I can't take any credit for this! He deserves all the glory always.
Today was my first day, I'm so excited to be part of this organisation, I get to combine two of my passions, creative work and motivating and inspiring young people.

So if you're believing God for something, hold on, just because it didn't work out the first time it doesn't mean its a no, sometimes the timing is not right. Be patient. God has already seen your future.

Today’s #virgofullmoon opposes the #piscessun and creates tension between our spiritual life and daily grind. Pisces rules the ethereal plane and Virgo the habits and work that regulate our lives. The crisis we face today may show us we’ve been neglecting one for the other, or torn with both not succeeding in feeding the highest version of either. Maybe work is demanding and you’re sacrificing part of your spiritual sanity. Or maybe Pisces season has you swimming in neptune daydreams not present with the here and now. Either way take a moment today to see where you’re at and how you can get balanced between the metaphysical and meta-analysis.
With analytical Virgo in the feels all day moon, there can be a tendency to think feelings instead of feel them. Or at the worst freeze feelings and only tend to the physical necessities. But Pisces Sun won’t allow for this, so the result is an anxiety without name.
Today give yourself a moment to meditate or do any self care/spiritual ritual that helps you center. Journal or do a free write to get in touch with those unsaid things you might be hiding from yourself. Know that as crazy as your life may feel, saying “I don’t have time” is like a sick person saying I don’t have time to go to the doctor as they struggle through their daily routine with the flu. Today treat your mental/emotional health with the same attention you give the physical. Half the time the physical is a manifestation of the psychic. Today IS the DAY for a #mentalhealth break. Give yourself permission* Living in a society ruled by governing/corporate systems that disrespect spirit and feminine regularly we have to be the advocates for our needs.
Today name the Rituals you need to make Routine* and the Routine that is Divine because as we exercise, eat well and get rest we are worshipping these spirit vessels. And finally give yourself a break if you’re not there yet. Pisces is the final sign and as such in many ways the Pisces-Virgo polarity is the last stage we have to master.
Conversely if you’ve been swimming in Pisces energy, going with the flow of others without setting sites on your own needs/goals take a moment and anchor your ship. ⤵️

It has been another successful season for us and one more time I feel extremely lucky to have shared this stage with this team, with this people! Since I’m with Fener we always had a great core who worked hard and seriously and the guys who joined us this year fitted perfectly with this mind set.
2 more cups and the 3rd Euroleague final in a row make Fenerbahce be part of the elite teams in Europe. This is what we wanted when I came here. Of course to win all three would have been way better! But don’t take for granted what we achieved. Nobody in Europe did better in the last three years. And like always, next year we’ll work to do even better!
About this, it has been a never ending season. 11 months of basketball at the highest level in Europe, being involved with more than 100 games(oh, thank you for voting me for the Turkish all star game, I really didn’t know what to do in the only free weekend of the year 😂)made me spend a lot of energy. This summer I will take advantage of the opportunity to have some time off to work on my body and on my skills. In such long seasons to be strong and healthy is crucial. That’s why I won’t take part of the next national team window, I need some rest now and a schedule to follow for the next 2 months.
I said already that I don’t like this formula, anyway always forza azzurri!
Thank you Teammates, coaches, behind the scene workers, and thank you fans! Your daily love and support push us to make you prouder and prouder!

she is the real deal if you are looking for a coach, there’s no one better than her.
The transformation that we did is incredible !
I love you my friend and I promise to do my best to make you proud in #Guadalajara.

After saying goodbye to this amazing portrait commission of Alice and Joe, I am now onto the next, a huge family of 7 !
I have surrounded myself with paper and will get to work sketching the first draft. My portraits happen in chapters, the first part of the story is the rough drafts, where I pull out or sorts of information, details, likes, hobbies, pets, children, favourite places. I make notes - lots of them and them I move to the second stage of shaping the portrait, adding, tweaking, the third stage is Inking out the final design and the magical and last part is adding the watercolours and collage.
The many layers of a custom portrait🖌🌈✏️

This #collage piece is fun and interesting IMO and blends vintage subjects into a modern or unexpected composition, with plenty of interesting lil details. I included a close up in one of the panels of the artwork to see some detail. Always an honor to work with #StateChampsNY and I’m so glad to be a part of this not only because of the #band but because this is for the final #VansWarpedTour.

Dreams do come true! @conroebrooks you deserve it boi, more then anyone I know!! @hamiltonmusical ・・・
So I have a bit of a story to tell that I hope inspires anyone that has maybe lost hope or faith.

I BOOKED HAMILTON!!! I can’t tell you how over the moon I am to be able to say those words. It’s still not quite real yet. This is literally my dreams coming true. Being in Hamilton is something I’ve been wanting for a very long time.

So this has been almost a 2 year process. In November 2015, my buddy @luis_a_patino sent me a link for an open call. I was excited, but quickly doubt set in and I thought, there’s no way sending video to an open call email is gonna work. So I did nothing. For 2 months. Then in February 2016, something told me to buck up and just do it. Months went by and I heard nothing. Then I got an email 3 months later to submit tape doing 2 songs from the show. Again, a month goes by with no word. Then I'm laid off of my corporate band. So now driving for Postmates was my main income. I was seriously struggling. Then, while delivering people’s dinners, I get the news that my mom has brain cancer. And everything changes. My world is flipped upside down. And then a month later I get another email finally asking me to come in for an audition in person. I go in to the audition with a heavy heart but ready to do an awesome job. I hoped after that they’d say “you’re in!” And I’d start rehearsals and my mom would come see me with her shaved head and we’d all cry together. But instead I heard nothing and a month later my mom passed away suddenly. I hit rock bottom.

I’ll cut this short since this is quite long. I audition 3 more times and then a final audition in NYC on Broadway 2 weeks ago. Here we are today. I’m in!! I’m in @hamiltonmusical !! My manager @richiewalls calls to tell me the news. I fall to the ground and I cry my face off. I holler out to God. Thank you God!! Thank you Mom!! I grab a picture of my mom and kiss it. I’ve barely been able to look at this picture all year btw.

So, I hope this gives you hope.
I’ll be the guy crying on stage the whole time.
Stay hopeful. You can

Read on if you wanna here the story of my challenges with performing and how I have learned to overcome them. :)) Today, I participated in my final solo and ensemble competition. Also today, I reflect on and celebrate my growth as a musician, singer, and performer. My freshman year, as I stood at this same competition, I was overcome with anxiety, struggling to breathe and hoping the adjudicator didn't notice my body trembling with nerves. I was incredibly disappointed in my performance, wishing that I could just sing and let others hear me "like I actually sing" instead of "how I sing when I'm nervous." (A sentence I said far too often.) Today, I stood on the Lowden stage with confidence in myself, a passion for my art and a deep love for the story I was telling. I absolutely could not have achieved this growth if I had not first released the many fears I was holding on to: fear of messing up, fear of not being as good as someone else, fear of failure, fear of disappointing myself, fear of other people not thinking I was a good singer, and so many more. While the path from then to now included a lot of broken performances and truly disheartening "failures," (which were really just lessons learned and performance opportunities) it also included a lot of mental strength, a lot of getting back up and trying again, a TON of hard work, and most of all, a tremendous accumulation of self-worth. Standing here today, I can authentically say that I do not compare myself to my incredibly talented friends, and only to the person I was yesterday. I can authentically say that I have released my fear of not being good enough, and have embraced the truth that I am. I can authentically say that I am proud of who I have become as a singer. If you made it this far, thank you for reading my short little anecdote, and please know that you are so worthy of being able to do whatever you love to do. 💓

Less than 3 years since I competed as Man’s Physique athlete in Ifbb. The first picture was taken a few days before going on stage, empty, hungry but shredded as never before!💀🤭😂😂
The second one is now! Big and happy, full of carbs and with a lot of hard work in the meantime🍼🍗🍚💪 Working on our weaknesses, around injuries and bad/stressful moments. There is no final goal in this game-instead aim to make yourself better each day, from your body, to your mindset and spirit☀️

LONG TIME BASSIST BEN HUNT STEPS DOWN FROM EYE OF THE ENEMY

It’s with a heavy heart that we announce the departure of our long time bass slapper, Ben Hunt.

Ben has been a true driving force in Eye Of The Enemy for the last 7 years, both as an integral member of The Vengeance Paradox album cycle, and part of the shared vision for our upcoming third album.
However, due to medical circumstances Ben’s ability to perform live has become unsafe, and for the sake of his future well-being he has decided that now is the right time to hang up the bass.

Benny’s legacy with his final recording on our soon-to-be-released album will stand as testament to his dedication and passion, one that we hope you all can enjoy for years to come.
We want to thank Ben one last time for the blood, sweat, tears, and loveable cynicism he has poured into this band for the better part of a decade, and we wish him nothing but the best for the future. If you’d like to leave him some love (and you bloody well should!), sound off in the comments below.
News regarding the future of Eye Of The Enemy’s lowend rumble will be addressed shortly, so keep your eyes peeled for that in the coming weeks.
You can read Ben’s statement below regarding his departure. "After 7 years with the Eye of the Enemy, unfortunately my time has come to pass on the bass duties due to medical issues.
I've racked up many great memories and experiences in this time, across 2 albums and numerous live shows. Luckily there's plenty more music and shows on the way from EOTE, which I’m excited to experience as a fan in future.
Thanks to all of you that supported the band over this period. The messages we received and encouragement made the hard work and time put in all worth it.
And lastly, thanks to all of my former band mates that i shared a stage with. Many great times which I will never forget.
Cheers,
Ben"

Let me take you back 2 years ago..
.
.
So one day around Christmas/my Birthday I was out and about at a shopping mall, enjoying the freedom home biz profession had given me. .
.
I was only 21 years old, and had pretty good momentum with my company at that time. 💪🏼🔥
.
Little did I know that a text from my upline would change the entire course of my career. .
.
I had already made a decision that going to a college wasn’t an option.
.
.
❌No plan B. .
.
I was gonna build my business online regardless of what it was gonna take. .
.
That text that changed my life had the most horrible news.. .
.
The company was getting closed. .
.
So the team of 2,000+ people fell apart in a second.
.
.
I was in shock. .
.
All the hard work we’ve put in, all the effort, all the time - it was all pretty much pointless at that time. .
.
Literally couldn’t believe this was happening. .
.
Network marketing was my plan A B C D E F… You know the alphabet 😂 .
Now I needed another plan. .
.
Join a new company? Keep doing what I was doing? Go to college (not an option)?
.
.
Yes, I tried to find a new company. .
.
No, none of them resonated with me. 😖 .
🏃🏼‍♀️Weight Loss? Not my passion, cuz I look like a stick lol. .
.
💄Makeup? Sephora has me for life. .
.
✈️Travel? I’m a control freak, so I prefer to book stuff on my own without looking at the ‘pre-made vacations’. .
.
My final decision? 🤔
.
.
I ended up doing what I had already started doing at that time - teaching entrepreneurs and network marketers how to grow their businesses online. .
.
Then I became a certified coach, got to speak on stage in front of hundreds, and all that cool stuff! 😎💃🏼
.
However, the idea of the time freedom and residual income network marketing had sold me on, was still lingering on... .
.
I still had an itch to build a team like I did before. .
.
So 2 years have gone by, and I finally found what I’ve been looking for and decided to lock arms with a new team. .
.
And as you can tell, I’m darn picky 😂
.
If you’re curious, what I’m up to, drop a comment below and I’d be happy to share more 😉

I really think that what gives a final product it’s value is the process that leads to it.
.
It’s something that I’ve been thinking about a lot lately. I’m learning to embrace the process in my day to day and I’m learning to be content in my current progress within God’s plan for my life — the season that I’m in is a stage in my journey, and it’s vital that I seize every moment.

Unlike a drawing, I will always be a work in progress. I am constantly being refined by the One who created me. I can trust His hand — it’s focused and steady.

There’s purpose in the process.

Evans Maripa geared-up for Asian Tour

Wednesday, 04 April 2018, Johannesburg, South Africa. – South African men’s highest ranked wheelchair tennis ace Evans Maripa has set his sights on cracking the world's top 7 by the end of the year.

The ambitious, strong-hitting Maripa who hails from Lonsdale in Polokwane stated the goal ahead of his four-week tour in Asia this month.
The world number 12 will jet-off this Friday to Korea Republic and will begin his tour at the Daegu Open, an International Tennis Federation (ITF) level 1 event from April 10-14 in Dal-Seo Gu Daegu City.
The 27-year-old Maripa will be taking part in the ITF 1 event for the first time since 2015 where he impressed reaching the men’s finals after losing a hard-fought match against Tom Egberink from the Netherlands.
Maripa will then move on to the Busan Open, an ITF level 2 tournament also in Korea Republic from April 16-19 where he reached the men’s singles semi-final round in 2016.
The 2017 Joburg Open champion will then head to Israel for two back-to-back tournaments, the Israel Open and Be'er Sheba Open to be staged from April 23-27 and April 30 – May 4 respectively.
"Definitely love to be in the top 7 globally," he commented.
“The focus now is to gather all needed points to break into the top 10 and hopefully in the top 7 by the end of this year.
“I plan to stage my A-game in these four tournaments, and I am confident I will do well looking at how I am playing at the moment,” said Maripa.
Icexpress Jumping Kids ambassador Maripa said he is all set for the forthcoming tournaments following a four-week of hard work on court, “We have been working on new tactics with my coach, Holger Losch for the past four weeks and I look forward to putting them into action in Asia.”
Maripa will be the only player representing South Africa at these four prestigious tournaments.

I’ve essentially narrowed things down to two recipes now (have a look at my story for some of the research I’ve been doing as well) and I’ve ordered some stuff relating to packaging. I already have a card reader and I already have a food safety certificate so that’s all sorted.

Next stage is doing some photography of the final few recipes and then having a tasting event where people can rank their favourites.

I can then work out costings and profit margins...

He needed a car to go to dialysis 3times a week. I posted the Steph Curry painting he did and today I am pleased to say your donations helped him get a this car with a warranty. For those who promised you would give we need the final donations for him to have insurance and gas money because he can no longer work. For those who shared this post God allowed the right people to see it and bless him and for that I am thankful... this new car came from a Instagram post —what if we all used social media to help others? I love using my voice!! I thank God for favor and two weeks ago he needed a car and a kidney now he just needs a kidney and I believe God will give him that too so if you can’t give anything then give the gift of a prayer for Terrence and he will appreciate that too @janmiller3525 @suegragg @mollanderson @artisj21

It’s quite clear to see why ABBA is still so popular after 46 years of their music being broadcast across the airwaves and on stage and screen.
This production was a party from start to finish. The audience were up and dancing in the final numbers. The feeling in the room was fun and carefree.
Of course there were some notable mentions.
@stephenmahy - it was great to finally see you in a leading role after following you for a few years now. Mate, you were looking ripped! 💪🏻
@sarahmorrisonau - thanks for playing Sophie. You aced it!
@srhooper - mate you rocked it as Pepper! You’re possibly the cutest merman I’ve ever seen, and the funniest! Such a different role from when I saw you in @catsaustralia.
@jaydewestaby - you absolutely win MVP for tonight. Your portrayal of Tanya made me want an Aunt Tanya of my own! Your comedy was on point! 👌🏻
A big thanks to Michael Coppel for bringing this show to life on Australian stages and to all the cast and crew who work so hard to make this show what it was tonight. I know it’s a good show when even my own Mumma says she would see it again. Thanks all for a great night! x

• RESURRECTION ENERGY •

by Judith Kusel “Immensely powerful and uplifting energies of change are flooding in, and bringing in awakening on a very deep level.

It is not only the awakening to much higher degree of consciousness, but also the awakening of what has lain dormant, been sealed off to humanity, after the Fall of Atlantis, the last of those civilization which came before us, and self-destructed.
I was called upon to massive energy work today, and with it came the releasing of so much of old.
The new waves of cosmic energy entering now, are reminded us of our own soul, and thus our own infinite link to the Greater Whole.
So, many of us are old souls who have been here time and again. So many of us are in our last incarnation on planet earth, and many of the soul group members have incarnated, to make their final stage call, and thus to truly work through those old negative karmic patterns, and finally free themselves up, as soul lessons are mastered.
It is time to let go: - of all the old stuck baggage, all that unforgiveness, all those grudges, all that is holding you back, and what you are holding onto for dear life.

The more we let go, the freer we become, the more our consciousness levels rise. Once you are freed up, and find that love indeed is there, deep within you, and claim your true son- and daughtership of God, you cannot but arise from the dead. The dead in this case, is the old Adam and Eve, the old you. We all go through stages where we have to die onto the old, in order to be reborn.
As I was doing the energy work today, and saw how the area of the world I was called upon to work at, had that specific ancient site release, how huge black cloud rose, of all the souls who were stuck there - some for millions of years. As they were freed the angels gathered them and put them into the fires of transmutation, were their souls were freed to finally to home to their home galaxies, and be freed. So much rejoicing in heaven and earth when this happens, for in truth, when we return to our true home, our own immortal Being, we are so filled with Light and Love, 👇🏻🦋

Step 1. Start by honing a component with coarse honing stone, a grain size 120 is adequate to start and work until all machining or EDM is worked off completely. The work should be done with the flat side of the honing stone to achieve as flat an even surface as possible. Vary the directions of the honing by using an X-shape. This aids when the time arrives to get an even surface.
Step 2. Hone according to Step 1, but with finer grain, this time using grain size 320. All remaining marks left by the previous steps are here completely removed.
Step 3. The next step is for a rough polishing with diamond paste on a brass piece. Grain size at this stage can start at 45 microns (μm). Continue with patience until all remaining traces of the previous honing marks from step 1 and 2 are completely removed.
Step 4. Next start refining the surface but with a 15 μm diamond paste. Continue until all remaining traces from step 3 are removed.
Step 5. Continue the next stage of polish but with 7 μm diamond paste. Continue until there are no remaining traces from step 4.
Step 6. Next, polish with a 7 μm diamond paste on fibre or plastic element. Continue until all remaining traces from step 5 are removed.
Step 7. Now you are getting near but not quite at the level of polish in the photo. Now Polish with 3 μm diamond paste on fibre or plastic element. Continue until all remaining "nuanced differences” from steps 6 are completely removed. (The use of the term ”nuance” is employed since the surface by now is so fine that one hardly can talk about any, for the naked eye and use of a microscope is advisable).
Step 8. Polish with 2 μm diamond paste on a felt element. Continue until all nuance differences previous steps are removed.
Step 9. Final polishing with 2 μm diamond paste and cotton. This is manual work, and now the final gloss is given.
Take your OCD medication. Several days of polishing have transpired. Let sit for a few days and review with a fresh set of eyes. Head on over to the bluing tank which is monitored to within a 3-degree temperature variance. And finally, DO NOT scratch anything of you are back to Step 1.

I have officially finished the second semester of my Masters 🙈 as you’ll know if you’ve been watching my stories, I’ve had a pretty tough time with it all. I’m proud of what I’ve achieved and the work that I’ve done, and I really feel that I have worked hard, but I’m also glad to be one step closer to finishing. Academia isn’t the world for me. It might be the place for others, and I’m so grateful I’ve had his experience, but school isn’t the place where I thrive. And that feels strange to admit because when I was in high school grades were my identity! I was so proud of my high marks and worked extra hard to impress all my teachers, but things have really shifted for me. I think that being a student isn’t what my identity was, it was being a learner. And learning is still something I really feel passionately about, but not in an academic environment where I am overworked, made to read things I don’t care about, and feel I am constantly disappointing people or not living up to insane standards. When I’m done my Masters I actually look forward to learning, always continuing my education, but on my own terms. ANYWAYS. I’m glad that this stage is done and I’m excited to dive into the third and final episode. Now my entire life is about making my documentary about Instagram poets. I actually find it pretty crazy that I probably just finished the last two classes I’ll ever take. But boy am I ready to make an amazing documentary and bask in the summer sun. ☀️🎥

WAWI NAVARROZA’s @wnstudio “I Want To Live A Thousand More Years (Self-Portrait After Dengue, with tropical plants and fake flowers)” has been selected as a finalist for the 2018 Sovereign Asia Art Prize @sovereign_art_foundation to be awarded in May 2018. Works by the finalists are currently on view from 26 April - 5 May at the HART Hall, H Queen’s, Hong Kong. ⠀

The Sovereign Art Foundation (SAF) was established in 2003 with a well-defined twin focus: to recognise the growing wealth of contemporary art talent in Asia, and bring the proven benefits of expressive arts to underprivileged children. “[...] The Sovereign Asian Art Prize, now recognised as the most prestigious prize in its field and region, raises funds by auctioning those artworks that reach the final stage of the competition. The proceeds are then shared equally between the artists and the Foundation, to be used for our charitable projects across Asia.”⠀

But this is a flashback to my last posing session after my final cardio session last prep at #GoldsGymVenice . It was a great prep with a great coach and we brought a solid package.
Now it’s time to step it up a notch and put in some work to compete against the big boys at my first national show in Miami. I’ll be joining the team of @omarv33 and his top athletes who are dominating the game. Every prep I’ve only gotten better and I’m looking forward to the final result. We have 19 weeks and 2 days from now till stage time. If it seems I’ve gone missing during this time just know I’m grinding and focused #TunnelVision

.
.
Months ago, Novak Djokovic wasn’t even playing in the US Open while trying rehab a nagging elbow injury that eventually required surgery. Now, he’s the champ.

Djokovic captured his 14th Grand Slam title on Sunday at Arthur Ashe Stadium, defeating Juan Martin del Potro in the US Open men’s final. Djokovic made relatively quick work of del Potro, beating him, 6-4, 7-6, 6-3.

Despite Sunday’s defeat, del Potro’s run at this year’s tournament was something special. After defeating Roger Federer to win the US Open title in 2009 , del Potro has had a tumultuous journey back to the championship stage.

He nearly quit tennis after undergoing four wrist surgeries (three of them on his left wrist) that left him in a deep depression and had him seriously weighing retirement.

Djokovic faced similar questions about whether he’d ever get back to another major final with his elbow woes, but after his triumph at Wimbledon in July, and with the more heralded — and older — Rafael Nadal and Federer showing signs of slowing down, another reign of the Djoker looks very real in men’s tennis.

Sunday’s victory is Djokovic’s second straight Grand Slam title. He also was crowned champion at Wimbledon after beating Kevin Anderson in the final. This is Djokovic’s third win at the US Open, having won previously in 2011 and 2015.

.
Laura and I were commissioned by our church to create this artwork before we left. It was hand painted above the stage, along the arches near the ceiling. The final artwork is about 15 feet wide.
.
The phrase was very timely, as we were just about to head out on our trip. The church was also going through some big changes as well, so it seemed fitting to write this phrase across the sanctuary.
.
I know this verse is about the new heavens and the new earth, but I think also it applies to the here and now. God’s creative, redemptive power is at work all around us.
.
Even in nature, everything is a perpetual state of change. Slowly, imperceptibly, mountains are growing, forests are regenerating, and death is continually being transformed into life.
.
And as Christians who believe in heaven, this truth brings great assurance. The trials and challenges are not the final word. The old order of things will pass away. Everything will change.
.
No matter how difficult things get, we can always have confidence that there is something better, and more beautiful, to come.
.
God is making all things new.

A Guide For Aspiring Hand Polishers
Step 1. Start by honing a component with coarse honing stone, a grain size 120 is adequate to start and work until all machining or EDM is worked off completely. The work should be done with the flat side of the honing stone to achieve as flat an even surface as possible. Vary the directions of the honing by using an X-shape. This aids when the time arrives to get an even surface.
Step 2. Hone according to Step 1, but with finer grain, this time using grain size 320. All remaining marks left by the previous steps are here completely removed.
Step 3. The next step is for a rough polishing with diamond paste on a brass piece. Grain size at this stage can start at 45 microns (μm). Continue with patience until all remaining traces of the previous honing marks from step 1 and 2 are completely removed.
Step 4. Next start refining the surface but with a 15 μm diamond paste. Continue until all remaining traces from step 3 are removed.
Step 5. Continue the next stage of polish but with 7 μm diamond paste. Continue until there are no remaining traces from step 4.
Step 6. Next, polish with a 7 μm diamond paste on fibre or plastic element. Continue until all remaining traces from step 5 are removed.
Step 7. Now you are getting near but not quite at the level of polish in the photo. Now Polish with 3 μm diamond paste on fibre or plastic element. Continue until all remaining "nuanced differences” from steps 6 are completely removed. (The use of the term ”nuance” is employed since the surface by now is so fine that one hardly can talk about any, for the naked eye and use of a microscope is advisable).
Step 8. Polish with 2 μm diamond paste on a felt element. Continue until all nuance differences previous steps are removed.
Step 9. Final polishing with 2 μm diamond paste and cotton. This is manual work, and now the final gloss is given.
Take your OCD medication. Several days of polishing have transpired. Let sit for a few days and review with a fresh set of eyes. Head on over to the bluing tank which is monitored to within a 3-degree temperature variance. And finally, DO NOT scratch anything of you are back to Step

My goals were to make it from the tryouts to the Finnish Championships, be in the first comparison and make it to the finals: all of which I did! ✨
I also wanted to improve on my stage performance, and I felt confident and calm being on stage. ✨

Everyone wants to win, no doubt about it, but I respect the judges opinions and the improvement that I see in myself (and the fact that I even made the stage, which I was uncertain of) has more value right now than the final placement. Persistent and hard work does pay off, eventually. 👊🏼 Right now I feel content, happy and relieved, and eager to improve more.❤️ The biggest lesson learned: don't ever stop believing in yourself or your dreams. ✨ #nordicfitnessexpo #nordicfitnessexpo2017 #nfe2017 #bikinifitness #6thplace #smkilpailut #final #top6 #nevergiveup #neverstop #believeinyou #motivation

"Harris launched her career when she co-founded the Second City comedy troupe in Chicago, Ill., later participating in the now world-renowned group’s first ever show. But her Second City performances were just the beginning of Harris’ flourishing career on the stage.
In 1967, Harris scored a best actress Tony award for her chameleon performances as Eve, Passionella, and Princess Barbara in “The Apple Tree.” She was also nominated for two other Tony awards, including a best featured actress nod for her Broadway debut in “From the Second City” and another best actress nod for her work as Daisy Gamble in 1965’s “On a Clear Day You Can See Forever.”
Onscreen, Harris enjoyed a long film career working with some of the industry’s top directors, including Alfred Hitchcock, Francis Ford Coppola, and Robert Altman. In 1972, she received a supporting actress Oscar nomination for her role as Allison Densmore in 1971’s “Who is Harry Kellerman and Why Is He Saying Those Terrible Things About Me?,” and she was also nominated for four Golden Globes.
Her first Golden Globe nomination came 1966 for best actress in a comedy or musical as Sandra in “A Thousand Clowns.” She later scored a supporting actress nod for playing Albuquerque in Altman’s “Nashville,” while her final two noms arrived in the same year and category in 1977 — two best actress noms for “Freaky Friday” and “Family Plot.”
Among her other films were “Grosse Pointe Blank,” which was her last role; “Dirty Rotten Scoundrels,” “Peggy Sue Got Married” and “Plaza Suite.”"

Dieted face, no make up, no filter, hair not washed, not brushed. And I think I forgot to put deodorant on today. But I did shower! 😂
.
▪️There's something about being in the final weeks of prep that make you just not care. I'm not a Barbie doll. Never have been. Never will be. There's a place in this world for odd, eccentric folks like me. Even if there wasn't, I'd carve out a little space for me so I didn't have to fully conform.
.
▪️Case in point: my professor told me I break "rules" in my writing. He says breaking certain rules in writing rarely works, but when an author succeeds at it, it's very exciting to read. He says I manage to break rules & make the rebellion work. I don't do it on purpose. I just intrinsically don't like walking the path that others have forged (except when climbing a mountain; then I totally want to conform, stick with the group, not veer off to my possible death). So the words & characters' actions tumble out, trampling some of those rules. Anyway, I've learned from authors & professors that if your writing is good enough, the rules don't matter. The fact that my writing IS good, good enough to rebel against some of the norms, scares me. How did I write that story that well? What if I can't do it again? It threatens to silence my writing, a cloth of chloroform against the mouth of my creativity. But I've managed to find air with each school deadline.
.
▪️I have a school deadline the week of my show. I'm pretty sure I'll breathe better after the deadline than before it. Along these same lines, throughout this last year, I wondered if my quad conditioning was a fluke in Arizona. It almost stifled me, this worry about whether I could be as good as myself...better than myself. I don't know what I'll look like on stage this year, but as of right now, I can say that last year's Arizona conditioning was no fluke. Just like I can & will write an odd, creative short story again, I can & will meet the physique I brought to Arizona last year...possibly even surpass what was my best. I hope I don't stand in my way.

The album "Red Dragon" is out this Friday on Posh Isolation as a digital release, you can preorder on Bandcamp now
CTM
Red Dragon

about / a (feverish) narrative involving / touching upon
Elon Musks (cancelled/) failed robotic lander mission to mars,
Michael Jackson's final moments on stage
and current personal life (motherhood)

Search as one might for an adequate charm to safely light 'Red Dragon,' Cæcilie Trier's evocations tend to outpace us at every step. The album's fever-dream story flicks through the recent past and the present. Elon Musk's extraplanetary desires cross with maternal notes. Michael Jackson, too, is watched over.

The terse titles that greet us in Trier's solo work are a wry sleight of hand. CTM, standing for Cæcilie Trier Musik, marks the impersonal boundary where intimacies are developed, trampled, and searched through. On her new album for Posh Isolation, produced with Asger Hartvig, aka MC Boli of Boli Group, the drama is composed and enduring, like a plot twist that lasts a life time.

Trier is a Copenhagen based cellist, singer, and composer, with her classical training apparent across her many and varied projects and collaborations. Having received critical acclaim from the earliest moments of her career, Trier's previous album 'Suite For A Young Girl' was nominated for the prestigious Nordic Music Prize in 2017. 'Red Dragon' keeps Trier's voice central to the affairs. The instrumentation wades in and out of focus from stage right and left. And as often as we are caught in the songwriting’s pirouettes and glances around the vocals, the splintering effect of the production impresses an inhuman déjà vu with regularity. This is especially felt in the electronics, sound bites, and digital ephemera that dress the songs. The bareness of the strings and guitars act as a peculiar balance, keeping us close just as we get a sense of the distance from which we are permitted a view.

Still going through items I boxed up in the depths of my depression (homophobia). Found this signed @im.angelabassett playbill of @katorihall’s The Mountaintop. A fictional depiction of Martin Luther King Jr.'s last night on earth set entirely in Room 306 of the Lorraine Motel on the eve of his assassination in 1968.
I saw this play twice and cried with the audience during Angela’s final monologue about all the black leaders that follow after MLK’s death. ⚡️⚡️ She radiated on the stage. Samuel and her are the epitome of #blackexcellence. Add that to the fact that Black theatre on Broadway is unlike anything else in the world. The atmosphere is literally electric. Little did I know it planted a seed to want to work in theatre. Angela came out of stage door in the pouring rain and handed me and a few others signed playbills 😭❤️. This happened with my friend @marijaivkovic back in 2011. I took it to the framers today, along with a signed Alicia Keys playbill of Stickfly - which she produced the same year -and a signed playbill of my first theatre production of The Father at STC so I can finally put it up on the wall 🙌🏾. So what does all of this mean?
Back then I was looking for answers, hope, connection, an understanding of my identity, a community, a respite from my pain if only for one night. I’m grateful that I could even bloody afford to do stuff like this - I worked my ass off for it tho. I haven’t had a lot of these memories framed and hung because of shame and past abuse (homophobia). But that’s gone now, boo boo. 👋🏾 and I have the answers, connection to people that run deep, I feel safe, and mostly, I love myself and I refuse for anyone’s homophobia, racism or sexism to tear me down. ✊🏾 And what do I know now? The words of this play, the energy from both nights will have layers of meaning and resilience that will live in me forever. ❤️

Aug 29th 2016 he was digsnosed with stage 3b Lung cancer along with 3 tumors, 2 on his spine 1 on his ribs. He fought for his life. He was just up & walking & talking & screaming at me about yelling at my daughter. He went to hospice at the beginning of December. I FaceTimed him everyday while at work. We hung out & talked throughout my day as i sat at my desk sharing our stories like always. I let him know everyday I was going to make it to see him & to hold on for me! As time went by he stopped answering his phone. I️ contacted my sisters Deanna Baez & Krysta Frato to keep going everyday to see him. When i finally arrived I couldn’t get a word out of him or for him to open his eyes but then he responded with his eyes & knew i was there as He saw me & heard my voice. I’m so torn. He’s now fighting stage 4 lung, also progressing stage 3 bone cancer out of no where & 3 tumors that are growing.
Cancer is winning. Fuck you cancer.
My original flight was set for Saturday 1/13/18 with my 2 year old daughter. I got a call i never wanted. Unfortunately I couldn’t bring my daughter due to my financial situation. I spent everything i had for the next earliest flight & had to pay for my seat smh. l landed at 2:00 pm & was stuck in hours of traffic finally i showed up at 4:00 pm just getting off my flight. At 6:00 pm my dad dropped his final tears in front of his 3 little girls, turned his head very slightly & took his last breaths. As my sisters held his hands & I️ placed my hand on his chest above his heart to feel his last heartbeat & breath, He fought to breathe but we told him it’s ok you’re going home. We love you! As we played his favorite songDrakee “Hold on, Going Home” he took his last breath & he smiled at us! You fought so hard & proved to so many people wrong & you did. I️ never wanted this for you. I never wished you had to go through this. 🕊💚 Fly High Daddy 7/22/56 - 1/12/18 🕊💚

My engineer ‘Brian McFadden The Great’ and I decided to quick order some champagne to celebrate our final show before boarding the bus to head back to Fordham following a first Round A-10 loss in Atlantic City. I can remember getting on the bus that day and thinking will it ever be this good again? ‘This good? Why this good? It’s only college. It’s just the beginning.’ -You Might say.
Wellllllll I was thinking I get to do what I love with my best friends in college, all of us traveling together, with no real life responsibility other than being prepared for the broadcast & getting lost in the action. How could anything I was ever going to embark on come close to replicating the pure joy of just calling hoops with your best friends (Lou Barricelli, Dan Murphy, Bobby Coyle, Justin Shackil)
Remarkably & gratefully that same level of excitement, gratitude and love I felt that day is exactly what I feel today as I get ready for a broadcast. Every stage of the journey brings a different permeation of joy. Now instead of the familiarity of Fordham fulfilling me, it’s the electricity of an NBA arena at playoff time. Instead of traveling on a bus with my best friends from college, it’s a plane with colleagues whose work I’ve often admired & whose company I’ve come to love. Instead of broadcasting on radio, it’s now TV. The audience has grown, the people have changed, but the experience has remained the same. Exhilarating. Fulfilling.
The game remains the same. There’s something intoxicating about getting lost in the rhythm of basketball no matter what level it’s on. And there’s something timeless about trooping together as a team to accomplish a collective goal.
Whatever your dreams are. Wherever your purpose takes you. Every step of that journey will look different & come with different surroundings, settings & rewards. But ultimately if you’re following what you love as I’ve been sooooo blessed to do I like to think you can find just as much beauty in every single step.

Some folks thought I posted a pic of @ifbbpromichaellockett earlier to make some sort of statement about @sergioolivajr.
Nope.
I am a fan of both men. I am also a fan of @regangrimes. I love Men’s Open Bodybuilding...it’s the Big League in the IFBB and always will be. That said, I also love Classic Physique! I respect everyone’s decision to compete in whatever Division they want. That includes Men’s Physique. While I am a fan of several guys in Men’s Physique (there is no denying that men like @jeremy_buendia, @luckylibra213, @rayedmonds_ifbbpro, @ryanjterry and many others have jaw dropping physiques) I have no problem admitting that I am NOT a fan of the Division. Personally, I find it a bit on the boring side as a spectator. Now, this doesn’t mean I don’t respect the guys who choose to compete in it. Hell, I even respect people who choose NOT to compete at all! I’m a fan of free will.
Some folks have asked my opinion of the social media banter that has been going on of late. My opinion is: I don’t really care. I follow the SPORT. I care about the PHYSIQUES. And I respect the work and final product all these Champions bring to the stage. That’s all that matters. The record books and the photos...those are the things that will live on. The rest is just whispers in the wind. Here today and gone tomorrow.
Would Lee Haney or Lee Labrada have engaged in such behavior as we see/read here on Instagram these days?
Maybe not.
They didn’t have to worry about social media though.
So who knows?
Can’t help but believe Arnold and Franco would have been all over it though! LOL!
Me? I’ll just keep honoring the past, respecting the present and building the future.
And enjoying all this other stuff on the DL! LOL!
