" sky access "

it's so much lovelier here that i imagined. a convex/concave double-mirror'd world installed on an astrotuf hillock. and why not at all?

sublime design within simple shapes. this is the portal to a form of heaven on earth.

a lightness of being, the laughter of these small children lifting the weights of gravity off my shoulders,

and i lift away.

tonight's homework:

find a release in a moment, respect the purity of that moment, and let it extend towards its natural end. there are such beautiful occurrences throughout the day. i'm wishing you the best in locating just a one.

" when you wear the best fit of the day "

---

invincibility as a construct is a difficult state to maintain. no matter how invulnerable we feel, our skin is still exposed to the world.

but a complete fit can be that armor to deflect all manner of hesitation. you can find yourself amidst naysayers or judgmental people, and render yourself immediately devoid of harm.

when you wear the best fit of the day, people take heed, and you have soul-fangs. one thing less is the matter, and you can walk tall, proud, confident, beaming, glowing, radiating.

i suppose i am still working on a complete best fit of the day, but i'm getting there piece by piece.

tonight's homework:

make yourself feel better for the benefit of yourself. things are always looking up.

" top of a small mountain is still a mountain "

---

above the ground, above the world, below the sky.

feet planted firmly and feeling powerful with the wind in your face and the strength of generations flowing through you.

all the pains ebbed, the ire depleted, the sadness vanquished. you stand on top of a small mountain and survey the future.

everything possible, loves in your life, delicious foods, your body running full throttle hurtling into every amazing experience after another, never stopping, never letting up.

then a quiet moment of reflection and a held breath exhaled.

---

" sun-kissed & baked "

---

hark! the clouds break and the rains turn to a drizzle to a drip drop, then nothing but lovely golden silence.

the sunset beams burn their way through the cloud cover, and cleaves particles to reach our bodies. the lengthy travel between near outer space and our receptive molecules is near-instantaneaous.

we stand upon the rooftop and welcome the glowing warmth, which arrive in a dazzle of photons and particles unseen.

" ladies first "

---

when someone is kind enough to sit for you, one of the very first things you must remember to do is thank them. it's so simple and easy to extend. you must remember that you are choosing a profession (or dedicated hobby) which demands that you respect your subjects, whether they be people, or nature, or the streets, or animals. a healthy ever-present sign of thanks and respect will carry a lot of positive weight.

i feel very lucky to have had the opportunity to approach and photograph so many interesting people. in each session, whether split-second streetography or longer dedicated shoot, i have been blessed to have had the access to learn about what makes people so curious and magnetic.

when someone invites you into their world, you must care for them as much as if they were your beloved family. we're here for so brief of a time, that there is no need to waste any precious moment. it's not enough to merely be good at your craft, you must strive to be exceptional, and then extend your hard work ethic beyond being merely great.

it does your subjects no justice to half-ass anything. the mood can be light and fun, but the craft, the skills, and your demeanor must always have the skeletal structure of professionalism and focus.

so remember to ask people to sit for you, thank them and be a pro. these are the moments which will make each day infinitely better and better. and on and on.

" a point of pivot "

---

just spend over 65% of your time focusing on positive energies, good vibes, healing wavelengths, and balancing out your biorhythm, and you may begin to feel a gentle glowing tingling throughout the entirety of your being.

please confirm that this enveloping sensation is not heat rash, light-headedness, allergies, onset of stroke or cardiac murmurs, and you'll pretty much be golden.

things are looking up, and you're doing great things. have a tip-top day, and make sure to pass on the sense of contentment to others.

all-weather friendships weather all storms. whether rain, snow, or sunshine, when you have a crew of peeps around, nothing is ill at ease with the world. nothing seems dire or inconsequential.

it's a powerful and intoxicating way to experience the infinite. camaraderie, lounging, laughter, being silly, tapping into conversational exploration and free-form improvisation, intermittent dancing, and allowing each other free reign to express themselves.

when you find the shortcuts to a form of true happiness, why would you ever choose to walk the paths. amazing times, amazing doorways through the spring to the summer. i'm very much looking forward to it all.

 for a moment i thought i was in a different dimension. the rooftop looked exactly the same as my rooftop, but there were people on it. they were smiling and relaxing, drinking beers and laughing. 
 the sun was lowering in the sky and everything around me wavered with an electric vibrancy. it was beautiful. everything was a still moment in real time, and i could see behind the green curtain of the fabric of reality. 
 there was absolutely no way that this rooftop was my rooftop, because for sure i was visiting a friend of mine’s apartment, and 100% i was at her building. 
 but for that short lovely passage of time, early evening with the sunset glowing warm and everything so till and so harmonic…it was a form of a waking dream that extended into my bones. 
 sometimes you realize that the world still has some magic to share, some awe to instill, and some beauty to bestow. and it is in these discoveries where we are refreshed and made anew.

 self-sequestration at home while congested does not strictly mean, you shouldn’t climb out the window onto the fire escape, scurry up the ladder to the rooftop, and feel the icy wind’s long wintry fingers around your entirety. 
 it seems even the film itself felt those frigid talons, as streaks and lifts haunted the serene scene below. 
 as and always, the way down was more frightening than the way up. despite being afraid of heights at most levels, you should do one thing that scares you each day to remain humble, and flex that sense of bravery.
