TIME-LAPSE DRAWING

I found out about this awesome talented painter last night. I was traversing through the highways of social media and there is was. This awesome video.

There’s not much information about the artist except the link to her social media.

I think that this is so perfect to address the current world issues, the wars, the conflicts, the killings, the terror. World Peace Day was “celebrated” a few days ago.

We all crave peace.

Let’s at least try.

Enjoy!

Emerson student Jody Steel draws on thigh, gains fame

By Christopher Muther GLOBE STAFF

Students, ignore everything your parents, teachers, and professors have told you and listen carefully: Doodling in class can make you a star.

At least, that is what it has done for Emerson student Jody Steel, whose remarkable drawings, usually on her right thigh, have won her buzz, hundreds of thousands of views online, and job offers.

Since starting at Emerson College in 2011, the Florida native has been using her leg as a canvas on which to produce portraits of Bryan Cranston as Walter White in “Breaking Bad,” Radiohead singer Thom Yorke, and “Don Jon” actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt. Celebrity crushes, favorite television shows, and an occasional cat have found their way onto her leg as she carefully draws with a Pilot Precise V5 pen during class lectures.

The delicate shadings of her work bring to mind a series of pop-culture chiaroscuro sketches. They are documented on her iPhone and then lost to the ages with the help of soap and water.

“Completely unexpected,” Steel said of the attention. “Obviously you always hope your art will be seen, but I wasn’t expecting it to go so big and international.”

As her doodled masterpieces went viral, they became international curiosities. The story was picked up by websites in France and Britain and in newspapers across Europe. Now a website in Brazil is touting her talents. She has posted many of these stories to her Facebook fan page.

~LYRICS~

(Instrumental Intro featuring Lindsey Stirling)

(Fraser)
There’s no time for us.
There’s no place for us.
What is this thing that builds our dreams, yet slips away from us?

(Remi)
Who wants to live forever?
Who wants to live forever? Oh,

(Clifton)
There’s no chance for us.
It’s all decided for us.
This world has only one sweet moment set aside for us.

(Victor)
Who wants to live forever?
Who dares to love forever?
Oooh, Ahh,

(Clifton)
Who dares to live forever? Woah,
When love must die.

(Instrumental break featuring Lindsey Stirling)

(Fraser/Remi)
But touch my tears with your lips
Touch my world with your fingertips

(All)
And we can have forever,
And we can love forever.
(Victor)
Forever is our today.

(All)
Who wants to live forever?
Who wants to live forever?
Forever is ours,

(Fraser)
Who wants forever anyway?

Who doesn’t love a good vampire scene set in a haunted castle?

In The Tenors’ video for their cover of Queen’s “Who Wants To Live Forever,” from their latest album Under One Sky, the quartet are vampires lamenting their immortality. The clip also features violinist Lindsey Stirling who contributed to the song.

Directed by Matěj Pichler, the video was shot in a historic castle in Prague, which locals have rumored is haunted by a previous family who inhabited the space 300 years ago.

Full Flower Moon …. May 3, 2015!!


MayFull

~~May 3, 2015~~ 

Full moon up all night on May 3-4

May 3, 2015 – the May 2015 full moon counts as the second full moon after the March 20 equinox. In North America, we often call this particular full moon the Flower Moon, Milk Moon or Planting Moon.

This Full Moon in Scorpio will have us delving into the deep mysteries of the heart and feeling our truth. We are being asked to feel instead of think and to act instead of speak.

~Full Moon Names and Their Meanings~

Full Moon names date back to Native Americans, of what is now the northern and eastern United States. The tribes kept track of the seasons by giving distinctive names to each recurring full Moon. Their names were applied to the entire month in which each occurred. There was some variation in the Moon names, but in general, the same ones were current throughout the Algonquin tribes from New England to Lake Superior. European settlers followed that custom and created some of their own names. Since the lunar month is only 29 days long on the average, the full Moon dates shift from year to year. Here is the Farmers Almanac’s list of the full Moon names.

~Full Flower Moon~

May In most areas, flowers are abundant everywhere during this time. Thus, the name of this Moon. Other names include the Full Corn Planting Moon, or the Milk Moon.

Native American Full Moon Names and Their Meanings

The Full Moon Names we use in the Almanac come from the Algonquin tribes who lived in regions from New England to Lake Superior. They are the names the Colonial Americans adapted most. Note that each full Moon name was applied to the entire lunar month in which it occurred.

On Sunday, May 3, 2015, we’ll have a Full Moon in Scorpio at 10:48pm CST.

This Full Flower Moon brings us to the lusty month of May. The energy is earthy and sensual, urging us to dig our toes into the mud.

Our psyche will be bringing up all kinds of toxins, such as possessiveness, obsessions, and resentments, so it’s a great time to cleanse, detox, and let go; getting healthy in the mind and body.

My political views? …. “Here they are exactly!”


MViews

~~April 16, 2015~~ 

LOOK BEYOND PARTY LINES

Those who follow “It Is What It Is” may have an idea about my essential political views. I tend to lean to the liberal aspect of life and the innate need for humans to be in service of those in need; to be the voice of the voiceless and to stand up for what should be considered correct and ethical. 

I found this graphic yesterday and it expresses perfectly my own personal beliefs and feelings about this thorny topic: politics.

Thoughts for today …. #135: “What the Bible Says”!!


GDeath

~~April 8, 2015~~ 

WHAT IS A SIN?

The following doesn’t describe my personal beliefs. While looking for information to go with the graphic above, I found a site that describes sin as quoted below. If being gay is a sin and should meet with punishment, it follows to this reasoning, that all other offenses should meet a similar fate, I would say.

BlackBor

For such a small word, a lot is packed into the meaning of sin. The Bible describes sin as the breaking, or transgression, of God’s law. It is also defined as disobedience or rebellion against God, as well as independence from God. The original translation means “to miss the mark” of God’s holy standard of righteousness.

While the basic origin of sin is unclear, it’s known that it came into the world when the serpent, Satan, tempted Adam and Eve and they disobeyed God. The essence of the problem stemmed from the human desire to be like God. All sin, therefore, has its roots in idolatry — the attempt to put something or someone in the place of the Creator.

Most often, that someone is one’s own self. While God allows sin, he is not the author of sin. All sins are an offense to God and they separate us from him

Something to think about …. “Even if it means standing alone”!!


Stand

~~March 29, 2015~~ 

Taking a Stand for your Beliefs
There’s a big difference in life between words and actions.

We can say that we believe in something. We can speak about how important our beliefs are to us. We can tell other people to believe. We can even get upset when others don’t act in accordance with our beliefs.

But the true test of what we believe in isn’t in our words. It is in our actions.

When everything is going smoothly, our beliefs aren’t tested and we don’t know how strong our commitment to them really is. But when something comes in conflict with our beliefs; when what we want is pitted against what we believe in, the laboratory in which we can test the extent of our beliefs is formed.

Thoughts for today …. #117!!


Disaster

~~March 2, 2015~~ 

Religion and Politics

The relation between religion and politics continues to be an important theme in political philosophy, despite the emergent consensus (both among political theorists and in practical political contexts, such as the United Nations) on the right to freedom of conscience and on the need for some sort of separation between church and state.

One reason for the importance of this topic is that religions often make strong claims on people’s allegiance, and universal religions make these claims on all people, rather than just a particular community.

it is probably inevitable that religious commitments will sometimes come into conflict with the demands of politics. But religious beliefs and practices also potentially support politics in many ways. The extent and form of this support is as important to political philosophers as is the possibility for conflict. Moreover, there has been a growing interest in minority groups and the political rights and entitlements they are due. One result of this interest is substantial attention given to the particular concerns and needs of minority groups who are distinguished by their religion, as opposed to ethnicity, gender, or wealth.

Today’s Message

Today is the Super New Moon in the sign of Aquarius. While that doesn’t mean a lot to most of us (including myself), what it does mean is that this is the time to manifest new projects & beginnings. A time when you are virtually unlimited! Take advantage of this moment in time when you can achieve anything you desire. Meditate on it – pray about it – then begin to take action.

This is a time for you to shine!
