IOTD …. Image of the day, #403 …. “Simple …. a resounding NO”!!


No-DT

~~December 8, 2015~~ 

THERE’S A LIMIT …. SAYING NO

I must set aside the light tone of the most recent IOTD.

I’d been trying for lighthearted images to go along the Christmas spirit and the holidays.

However, due to the most recent development from the Republican front-runner for the 2016 Presidency, I feel the need to say a few short words:

NO …. ENOUGH

The rest is up for you to find out and decide for yourself.

Earlier today, (December 7, 2015), the candidate currently leading in the polls for the Republican presidential nomination called for a “total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States.” That was, of course, Donald Trump. As Jeffrey Goldberg just tweeted, “Donald Trump is now an actual threat to national security. He’s providing jihadists ammunition for their campaign to demonize the US.”

A dear blogger friend taught me this concept.

~IN HER OWN WORDS~

IOTD” is image of the day, a concept I came up with. I teach visual meditative therapy – or in easy terms – a mini mental holiday. For some people it is very difficult for them to get their image right. I post an image a day for people to use in their mini mental vacay. Some are serious, some are silly, and some are just beautiful!”

THIS IS VERY SERIOUS FOR ME

To start the day …. “Karen Rodriguez: “Hello” Spanglish Version”!!

~~December 8, 2015~~ 

SPANGLISH VERSION

You may say that I’m “obsessed” (and you may be correct).

I’m in love.

I love Adele’s new album “25”.

Hello” is very special to me because my significant other told me that this song could describe part of our past.

An to top it all, here’s a version part in Spanish.

(We call it “Spanglish”).

Karen Rodriguez does a great job in the translated lyrics. I wonder how the complete song would sound in Spanish.

I hope you enjoy this version.

Karen Rodriguez is out to smash all the pop chart toppers.

After killing you softly with her Spanglish cover of Drake’s “Hotline Bling,” the American Idol alum is back with another bilingual twist, giving Adele a run for her money with a raw and powerful rendition of “Hello.”

“I connected deeply with ‘Hello’ and after seeing how well it was received, I knew people would enjoy hearing it in a new way,” said Karen to VIBE Viva.

“I decided to give it a twist and write my own lyrical adaptation in Spanish, opting out of a literal translation. I wanted to express what the song made me feel, and I also wanted to stay as true to the melody and to Adele’s flow in the original.

But I am a bilingual artist, I love singing and writing music in both languages, and I hope this cover serves as a platform where I can gain more fans who genuinely love and appreciate the work I do!”

Thoughts for today, #298 .… “Citizen of the World”!!


WorldCit

~~December 7, 2015~~ 

CITIZEN OF THE WORLD

In broad usage, the term global citizenship or world citizenship typically defines a person who places their identity with a “global community” above their identity as a citizen of a particular nation or place.

The idea is that one’s identity transcends geography or political borders and that the planetary human community is interdependent and whole; humankind is essentially one. The term has use in education and political philosophy and has enjoyed popular use in social movements such as the “World Citizen” movement and the Mondialisation movement.

I am a citizen of the EARTH
I am here since my birth
Fun and joy – there is no dearth
Enjoyment can expand your girth

Stay anywhere – on an island or firth
You will end up in a state of mirth
Anywhere from Paris to Perth
Living is bliss, worth your worth

I am a citizen of the GLOBE
My house is made of adobe
Travel from Korea to Kobe
There is a place even for a microbe

Dressed up well to the earlobe
Butterflies wear a colorful robe
In her children lived mother Niobe
History is worth a probe

I am a citizen of the UNIVERSE
Not national or international but diverse
On humanity, racism is a curse
In divinity, one should immerse

Tender feelings one should nurse
Our children are our wealth, purse
Never use harsh words or be terse
Being good is better than being worse

I am a citizen of the WORLD
Sans geopolitical boundaries, my spirit unfurled

I am a 22 year old illustrator specializing in photorealistic colored pencil and graphite drawings.

Hello!

My name is Heather Rooney.

I am an illustrator specializing in photorealistic colored pencil and graphite drawings.

Since finding my passion for portrait and figure drawing in high school, I have developed a technique focusing on high attention to detail. I draw my inspiration from a broad range of cultural figures, such as sport athletes, media personalities and entertainment professionals.

With each illustration requiring many hours of work, ranging from 30 hours to 100+ hours, I share my process through time-lapse videos on my YouTube channel, which has generated over 60 million views from a global audience.

I received my B.A. in Studio Art at Emmanuel College, in the vibrant city of Boston, Massachusetts. I am now pursuing a career in illustration.

REMEMBER WHEN?

Starbucks unveiled its new holiday design – a red cup with the green Starbucks logo – and sparked significant controversy due to its lack of Christmas symbols like reindeer and snowflakes.

Starbucks defended the blank holiday design as welcoming of people’s different stories.

How fickle are we as a society?

How short is our memory?

Is there an element of an attention span deficit?

I wonder.

At least, a young, extremely talented, young lady, HEATHER ROONEY, grasped the idea happily and worked her wonder art.

There’s still hope, I think.
