Change of seasons

Hi guys. This is surely, the time of change, updating and throwing out of the old and in with the new. Are I hustle around the city, I take a moment or two, to embrace the facts of being present and productive. Along with the trees that where once green, are now beautiful shades of yellow, orange and reddish. Absolutely breathtaking! Enjoy this day! We are very blessed!

Expression vs Perception

Greetings! Today is the perfect day for research and reflection! I woke this morning to a strong desire to look internally at how I was feeling and growing very much as a woman/artist. The topics of the day are: Expression vs Perception. Expression: the process of making one’s thoughts or feelings. Perception: the ability to see, hear, or become aware of something through the senses. Which brings me to even more realization of the reason as to why I have taken such a liking to the  exploration of butoh and the further knowledge of the classical for of dance, Ballet. These two forms are complete opposites of each other. Ballet: revolves around the mastery of the strict technique itself. It is a form of art, which makes it expressive, through the technique and artistry. Entertaining the audience and playing a role, character and or a story. And butoh, A more recent form of art(est.1960s) comes from the foundation of pure and unguarded expressionism, born out of the need to break out of rules and boundaries of the body and mind. Not usually focused on there being judgement, entertainment or acknowledgement of the audience. Not at all like a tutu and or corset, or even a leotard. Interesting process for me. I will continue to explore, for it will be very useful  during my process of further Creativity and Growth. In general. Please feel free to share your thoughts, comments, etc with me. Thanks for taking the time to read and follow. Enjoy the rest of this day!

Saturday in the City

Greetings all! I am hoping you are enjoying the change of the seasons wherever you may be. I find this time of year to be one of my favorites! Why? Because, I usually find myself wanting to clean up, clean out, restore, give away useless clutter(physically and emotionally), rest while I create new and interesting things! Just as the trees, know how to do the shedding of leaves from this past spring and summer, I believe we as humans desire to do something of the such, in our own ways! But, here, in the city, the leaves have not started to yellow and brown in the traditional way that only Autumn can display. That’s alright though. As soon as they do, I hope to capture a few pictures and share them here. But for now, I’ll just keep on my process, enjoy the bit of warmth, with a light, very light sweater, and be content with that. Enjoy this day. Laters, for now! P
