SELF LOVE: It Is Easier Than We Thought.


I haven’t created a video presentation in a very long time that would not fall under the category of conceptual video work. My life has been on an increasingly steady path of ease and widening. And I have found a return video formatting with a focus on direct communication to be a natural concept during this time of gentle shifting.

On self love, I believe this offering covers most all of what I wish to express at this time with clarity and comfort.

adult male rape, Recovery, trauma, Uncategorized, Video

This conversation continues, based on my perspectives and experiences through rape and recovery. My intention with these conversations is to encourage an understanding of what the act of rape actually is like for many of us. More importantly the process of recovery and living an abundant better and brighter life through the process.

No rape or trauma experience is the same, yet there are many similierties in the after effects and after care. Within the soft walls of these talks I share my concepts of love and recovery.

This particular talk is designed for those who may be supporting a loved loved one on the mend. And finding it difficult to understand the emotional shut downs or “triggers” behind a projected emotional illusional exterior.

A BRIGHTER UNDERSTANDING PART II

Take a sensual slip into my “pond” a seasonal escape place of imagery and write. Soon to be set to rest, as summer slips into autumn afore winters undesired stay.

Shifts in winds off mid-west lakes may feel like razor lacerations across my flesh. Yet I will continue to journey through with my experimentations and growth. In all aspects of life, most importantly spirituality art and my fellow man.

As this soldier marches forward, I appreciate my past while I remains focused calmly on the now as the futures seep near.

KALEIDOSCOPE X1A: Industrial Worship

I stroll enjoying an endless sensory splendor, as life rolls and unfolds before me. Oh, how these sweet eyes of mine drink in the carnival wallpaper before me. A fusion of nature and man made discarded clutteorment. A perfectly landscaped oasis found at the edge of the expressway near my home. Many I am sure view this urban lot to be just another caged wasteland, hungry for development. A collective of bric-o-brac’s and forgotten city works battling battle it out with wildflowers and weeds in hopes of reclaiming ancient turf.

I see the music, I hear the joy, I feel the beauty in the discarded. This is my experience these days from the grotesque to gloss it’s all the same. Although I retain my sensitivities – Peace

The World is My Home

Almost daily I wrestle with the idea of a return voyage to reclaim New York as my personal, artistic and spiritual settlement. My mind often suggest head west young man. Or southeast to explore the comfort, warmth and new territories when in reality I know I will settle overseas. Yet New York City for me will always be a magnet, it always has been. The fact of the matter is New York is my natural home. As a creature obsessed with every street corner perfectly staged for visual stimulation, conversation and inspiration. I have ricocheted several times over the years in desperation between NY and Chi-town for various reasons. Each separation has left me completely empty. Much like an orphan who has lost his parents in a tragic unexpected accident. With each magnetic return feeling as if I am the harp and she, the city knows exactly how to pluck every living cord within me.

What I must remember is I am now living and creating a new life. I no longer am entrapped by insufficient thoughts. At this stage I take time to pause and remember, now I live according to what I choose to create. Never a victim of self or anyone else’s thoughts, actions or deeds. I am only limited by what I envision. Why would I choose to be limited to never traveling or venturing anywhere in the world. Or strictly living in one place f-o-r-e-v-e-r. Once I removed my mind shackles, thoughts began to rise and bubble over without any effort. What? I actually have the option to live in multiple places and travel at the same time. What? New York, Spain, Italy, San Francisco, and Mars are not being removed from existence next week…lol (I must maintain a sense of humor always)

I have revisited, rediscovered, reclaimed and revised my value system of self-care and self-love. I have chosen to live an expanded life. I am committed to this journey heart, mind, body and soul for myself and another. I am here for the long haul and for the record my higher power and I don’t skimp on benefits or good will.

Love and Light Always
