Life feels like the search for balance between patterns and escapes.


Each sunrise is a universal pattern, a Good Morning spelled in all languages across Time Zones. A natural clockwork.


Since we are born, our heartbeat is our pattern, our family its shelter, our home its nest. With time, we need to find our way, escape from those patterns, be a different leaf. We let ourselves go, we surrender to Art, Music, Literature. We find our voice, sing our tune. We travel, reach for the sky, explore the sea.


And in all this time, the sun will keep rising, Nature will keep showing its patterns, those unique patterns that need no escape, because they are genuine.


And when we feel we have traveled enough, we go back to our shelter. Now our patterns are no more a cage, they are a choice.


We then oscillate between lifetime patterns and memory of escapes, until we go some place, someday, from where we hope to take off for another journey. Hoping that one of our keys is left behind, that something of us still breathes in someone else's pattern. Or escape.

Just a few quick, unedited clips of me and my kid at the ocean. It was warmer than it looks, I promise. :)

I opened an e-mail with a video attached to it.


The video showed my nephew pitching a no-hitter in baseball.


I think it's fantastic that my nephew is talented in sports.


 


But I couldn't help but cry.


 


It must be nice having a child who can do things like play sports, who you can speak with and interact with.


I struggle to find what my own son wants.   


He's a year younger than my nephew.

I laughs, he plays.. but his words are few, but he speaks volumes through his actions.


 


There are some days where he just gives me a hug, or sits in a room with me.


I won't know how his day went, or what he's experienced - but his smile is full of joy, and his laugh will make you smile.


I wanted to hit my brother for sending me that e-mail.  Instead, I thought about it, and gave my son a hug instead.

I thought a bit about if i was going to upload this or not. It shows my daughter Alice Rose in a very vulnerable situation just after her first major heart operation. But at the end when mom and daughter comes into frame, i find it very moving as it reveals one of the many rolls a mother takes on daily for her children. Here’s to the moms!

My contribution to The Future freestyle something. Hope yall enjoy it :)

I don't know what the future holds for me
I pray my path is shown to me
But in this moment I am free
I have hope that I'm where I'm supposed to be
I don't know what the future holds for me
I pray the path is shown to me
But in this moment I am free
I have hope that I'm where I'm supposed to be


I never claim to know the future but I often
Try to predict it, due to fear of the coffin
That kind of thinking 'll make the moment an orphan
As I leave it to live inside a prediction that I blew out of proportion
When the fact of the matter is everything that matters is in the moment that I'm ignoring
See the future is a myth
You can't prove it, nobody has seen it, we only believe that it exists
And it's a myth leaving the greater portion of the population
Stressed about it, laying in bed at night awake n'
Forcing the flow of their lives to out smart it
But regardless often end up disappointed or mistaken
I like to believe in fate and that God directs us
But other people's free will can still affect us
So in the end the future is only a gimmick
If you're looking for a moment of change, you're living in it


I don't know what the future holds for me
I pray my path is shown to me
But in this moment I am free
I have hope that I'm where I'm supposed to be
I don't know what the future holds for me
I pray the path is shown to me
But in this moment I am free
I have hope that I'm where I'm supposed to be

Recorded a verse and a kind of pre chorus rap. I can relate to darkness. In my dealings with anxiety, the darkness is often where I find inspiration and creativity. They seem to go hand and hand for some reason. I hope you enjoy the video :)

Lyrics:
I've tried embracing the dark like its my alma mater
I trade depression to make art like a twisted barter
I'd feel the pressure to be the best and I'd sink in farther
It's hard to find your way out when the maze is getting darker
And as a child I was afraid of the closet filled with monsters
But now that closet is in my mind and monsters leave and wander
The more I conjure the darkness
Via thoughts of the hardships
That I might encounter, Then I ruminate on the thoughts I harvest
Cause that's anxiety, the darkness always eyeing me
That's led me on a journey of discovery and piety
I know it's all inside of me
My thoughts are rioting
I'm not afraid of darkness, just what's hiding in it quietly

Guess that's the plight of being artists
Guess that's the plight of being artists
Yeah, yeah, you're burdened with the darkness
Cause where it's darkest, that's where the art is
Guess that's the plight of being artists
Guess that's the plight of being artists
Yeah, yeah, you're burdened with the darkness
Cause where it's darkest, that's where the art is

Sometimes the darkness


falls so slowly


that


you don't notice


until


you look around 


and


you can see


no one


and


no one


can see


you.
