//JIGSAW//
Yesterday i saw the box
of jigsaw puzzle, 
Which was relaxing
on the top of shelf, 
With the blanket of dust
all over it;
.
I carried it in my hands, 
And as soon as I wiped the dust from it;
Sudden feeling of long lost
friend came, 
Gushing over me;
.
I sat with that box,
Opened it,
and spread those pieces
on icy cold tiles,
And then it hit me that my set of friends are like this only,
Random when separated, 
having different angle,
different strengths
and
different paths;
.
For our set of friends it always take someone to arrange them
In particular spot
So that other person could fit;
To match our time lines,
Whenever reunion was planned;
It always take arrangement,
Just like jigsaw puzzle;
.
And when that arrangement is done,
We are beautiful filling each other's void and adjusting other's extra mood swings.
Just like jigsaw puzzle
We are awesome together.

호크니는 본인 그림의 보다 나은 표현을 위해 
사진을 많이 활용했다.
.
렌즈로는 내면을 제대로 들여다 볼 수 없다.
천 명이 하나의 사물을 바라볼때에는
천개의 시선이 존재해야된다.
세상에 객관적인 시각이란 없다.
주관적 시선으로 바라봐야 하지만 
카메라는 고정된 시각으로
모두가 똑같은 것을 표현하게 한다.
주관적인 시선을 표현한다는 것은
오직 그림에서만 가능한 것이다.
.
뭐 그런 이야기를 하였다.
.
일부 맞고 일부 아니라고 생각한다.
.
가장 중요한 것은
호크니는 자신의 그림을 통해 
그림이 사진보다 더 우월하다는 것을
표현해냈다는 것이다.
.
호크니 말에 수긍하지 않는다면
감정 섞인 말이나 글을 통해서가 아닌
“사진”을 통해
세상을 철저히 주관적 시선으로 표현 해내야된다

그걸 보여주지 못하는 한
영원히 사진은 그림보다 낮은 단계의 표현일 수 밖에 없다
.
Art is a highly subjective point of view
Tell your story not the others.

Tonight while walking I saw that little hill filled with canola.  So I decided to climb to the top, although it wasn’t that high it got me thinking of how many of those little hills I miss on the daily.  After my short climb I sat at the top took some deep breaths and carried on.  Trying harder to notice all the small hills, not only noticing them but embracing them.  In @bryanadams  words “there will never be another tonight”. #mindset #growing #learningtobestrong #metaphor #hills #outside #walk #calm #itoldafewmosquitoswheretogo #kindabryanobsessedatthemoment

Photos with an iPhone, photos with an android 😐🌝 I once knew a person that was the physical embodiment of the android camera, she was a nice person until I zoomed in on her character 👀🤷‍♂️ #metaphor #symbolism #hashtag it’s nice to look back at days like this, you realise you don’t need to do much to be happy with the right environment or company.

⚡ STRIKE

temperature spike
pressure rise
and the feeling of a flash flood
lightning strike
light up the skies
head reeling from a rush of blood

I didn't like the look in your eyes
as you drag my name through the mud

we all have stories that we tuck away on the shelves, scars we cover and skeletons we keep in the closet. we keep all of this under lock and key. many of us build walls up in hope that no one ever finds out. it’s not till that one person, comes in. with a little light, a soft touch and a listening ear that all our safe guards come tumbling down. in the midst of trying to rebuild what we lost, we are soon intertwined with this person. sharing in conversation that accountsfor things that are a shared commonality. soon after, you find yourselves. building each other up, instead of the walls. .

I broke three vertabrae in 1993, just as the Soviet Union was falling apart. It was a rough few years. We immigrated in 1994. I'm only now starting to remember some pieces of my life from back then.

Every time I hear my American friends scream "DOWN WITH CAPITALISM" I am reminded of what happened when communism collapsed and I wonder if the world would be significantly better if my American contemporaries had a more accurate picture of how the full collapse of a entire country actually plays out in real time. Or just a better understanding of what happened in Russia in the 90s.

In the western narrative of history, it is fashionable to think of  Russia and America as two polarities - unreconcilable opposites//inversions//character foils of each other. Yet we live on a round planet, no matter how we  may turn it. The edges of one story are simply the beginning of another.

Considering writing a longer article about all of this, but who knows if that will happen, or if anybody will want to read it. --

Chillin' on a boat catchin' a few fish! This is how life was meant to be lived! ⠀
⠀
#WisdomWednesday - Are your marketing tactics failing to "catch" any leads? Sales and marketing are a lot like FISHING. ⠀
⠀
First things first, you have to figure out what kind of fish you want to catch, then you can figure out where to go fishing. Sure, you can take a pole, a hook, a worm and go to any body of water and start fishing but you won't always catch fish and if you do they may not be the kind you were hoping for.⠀
⠀
A marketing strategy works in the same way. Not every fish is the right catch for what you want. Before you get out your pole and worm, start thinking about your ideal customer and how you need to market to attract THAT type of person.⠀
⠀
Posting without a strategy is like fishing without bait!

Are you actually ready to see your dreams come to life?⁠
⁠
This was a question I asked myself a few days ago, and it punched me right in the gut.⁠
⁠
My immediate reaction was YES, I'm doing ALL the work, I'm ready, I'm ready, I'm ready, bring it on Universe.⁠
⁠
Then my heart spoke up, and she said:⁠
⁠
No, I'm not ready.⁠
⁠
I was shocked and heartbroken.⁠
⁠
I asked her why? She said:⁠
⁠
I'm not ready for money to pour in, because I don't know what to do with it. I believe I'm irresponsible.⁠
⁠
I'm not ready to be a leader, because then I need to be seen, heard and witnessed and I'm not ready for people to REALLY see me.⁠
⁠
I'm not ready for the responsibility, accountability and work that my dreams require of me.⁠
_________⁠
⁠
We can do all the work, put in the hours, create and heal and grow... But if at the end of the day deep inside you don't actually feel ready for what you desire, how can the Universe co-create with you in bringing your dreams to life?⁠
⁠
So my question for you is: Are you ACTUALLY ready for your dreams to come to life?⁠
⁠
And before you answer, get out of your head and let your heart answer.⁠

I thought second chances were promises,
You offer up tiny parts of your soul
Allow faith to override being wronged. 
I was taught second chances turn into hundreds.
Realised that hope and blind faith turned
Me from religion - and I should not think
Humans to be higher than their form.
Cast aside the hopeless endeavour of worship.
Believe in my own body and mind, 
Teach myself that I deserve to worship the ground 
I fucking walk on.

💡Find joy in the journey! 🚀
.

It's been a lot of time on the road by now, and sometimes it's kind of hard to see the beauty in every day. Even thought all the places I visit are new and exciting, at one point it gets similar.
One of the things I've learned trough this fast pace travel, is to find something that buts a smile on your face every day. It might just be a sneak peak into a non touristic neighbourhood, a random stop to smell the sunflowers, noticing a lovely hug between two unknown persons or just closing your eyes and feeling the wind.
It's all about the simple things, that are constantly around us and it doesn't depend on a location we are at.
While writing this post I remembered a conversation we had with a German guy and two lovely Danish ladys. We discussed about who comes first - yourself or someone else (family, friends etc). The German guy was so shocked to hear me say, that the first priority will always be myself. Not said in a selfish way or ego based, but based on a simple truth that we live only our lives, and we cannot live for anyone else. For a simplifying metaphor, I would put it like this - You will never be able to do a CPR for  another person if your own heart is not pumping. Neither can you live the life of others.
No matter the days or places or emotions, there is joy around us always, the key is to notice it and not let the "routin" take over your mindset, thoughts and emotions.

It's been a lot of time on the road by now, and sometimes it's kind of hard to see the beauty in every day. Even thought all the places I visit are new and exciting, at one point it gets similar.

'The brain appears to possess a special area which we might call poetic memory and which records everything that charms or touches us, that makes our lives beautiful... Love begins with a metaphor. Which is to say, love begins at the point when a woman enters her first word into our poetic memory' M. Kundera

I am eternally grateful for my hands, for the body part that turns pages and writes sentences, draws the images in my head, gesticulates while I speak, and most importantly: allows me to create this art that changed my life. This piece is an ode to these movers and shapers of ours, these pointers and holders, these complex endings to our limbs. It is also a reminder of the ability to alter your reality, to draw lines in the sand, to move in other directions. All is malleable, moldable, and totally within your grasp, waiting for you to take hold. These ideas flowed through my mind as I focused on my own hand and sketched this piece. It is entirely handmade from sterling silver, and features a vesuvianite stone in a 14k gold fill setting in the center of the palm. A brass crescent moon floats above the stone, while handmade lily of the valley burst forth from a lace sleeve. I hinted toward this design in one of the first photos I posted about this collection that featured my own hand covered in vesuvianite and dried lily of the valley. I’m thrilled to have finally brought it to life. This piece hangs from 18 inches of sterling chain, and is part of the Lily of the Valley Collection coming 7/17 at 8pm est. 🌙✋🏼🖤🍃 #soliloquyjewelry

Chillin' on a boat catchin' a few fish! This is how life was meant to be lived! ⠀
⠀
#WisdomWednesday - Are your marketing tactics failing to "catch" any leads? Sales and marketing are a lot like FISHING. ⠀
⠀
First things first, you have to figure out what kind of fish you want to catch, then you can figure out where to go fishing. Sure, you can take a pole, a hook, a worm and go to any body of water and start fishing but you won't always catch fish and if you do they may not be the kind you were hoping for.⠀
⠀
A marketing strategy works in the same way. Not every fish is the right catch for what you want. Before you get out your pole and worm, start thinking about your ideal customer and how you need to market to attract THAT type of person.⠀
⠀
Posting without a strategy is like fishing without bait!

The Bluebird of Happiness

He can be elusive. He can turn up in the most unexpected of places. He may be fleeting. But one thing is for sure, he is beautiful. And you should enjoy every precious second of the time you have with him. #metaphor 😏

I’ve been having a lot of luck with birds and wildlife lately but this mountain bluebird shot is easily one of my favourite of this year.

The more you can dream, the more you can do.

Never let someone talk you out your dreams,
no matter how big or far away they are!
