Father's Day, Your Self, Ego and Jim Carrey's speech

Jai Guru Dev

 Jim Carrey speaks truthfully to graduates of Maharashi University of Management in 2014 about fear and the act of love in all things we do, from about 10 mins of the video.

 But in respect for Father's Day, his speech points out how lessons we learn sometimes come directly from our families and those close to us.

 He explains from minute - 11:19-11:52

 "You can fail at what you don't want, so you might as well take a chance on doing what you love."

   -Jim Carrey, comedian

 :)

Have a look!

" What matters is how quickly you do what your soul directs" -Rumi

“What matters is how quickly you do what your soul directs.”
― Rumi

Violence is an act without soul.
Direct life in love
Anger won't last
and we will be
Direct in what we see
Soul will fill
Love will lead.

 -Athena Lambers

Slam Poetry Videos by Holly McNish - Food, Language, Love, Womanhood, Human Rights.




 "Kids can't even read the ingredients of their meal time"

 Powerful stance on food rights. Whole Food Nutrition.


 

 "I'm happy I'm learning Spanish." Activate the left and right brain. Ride the language love train.

 

 "So I whispered and tiptoed with nervous discretion. But after 6 months of her life sat sitting on lids, Sipping on milk, nostrils sniffing on piss, Trying not to bang her head on toilet roll dispensers, I wonder if these public loo feeds offend her, 'Cause I'm getting tired of discretion and being polite."

 Why not to be embarrassed when a mother feeds her child - from her breast.

 Holly McNish's honest words and delivery on potent topics of food, language, love, womanhood, human rights.

Meet Lorenzo, our adopted puppy.




You're making me wear this?




   We got married. We adopted a puppy. 
Adventures with Lorenzo

 Our friend Ross said, "Countdown 9 months and you'll be pregnant before the 9th month.  That's what happens when you get a puppy."  I have to say I'm love drunk for this fur-lined heartbeat creature.  But I am not convinced I'll love a unfurry human baby more.  Unless they come out hairy with a furry back.  Chances of that happening are high with Greek blood running 75%.  I'd hashtag myself #I don't-have-a-maternal-gene except for cute adorable puppies. We named him Lorenzo and we think he is the best dog anyone could ask for!

   So I made this video clip for his fan-club overseas and across the country.   This was a mission we did in our first week as puppy parents.

   He has grown to walk easily on a lead and cruises through the city with me so easily.  I took Lorenzo on an epic city walk into Cape Town Centre.  We visited the Castle of Good Hope, went shopping in the Grand Parade, and he managed to sniff out every KFC Chicken Licken chicken bone that gets thrown on the street after 1pm lunch.  Needless to say, his 1 hour cruise means he's cuddled up right next to me on the couch as I write this.  Another hashtag moment #nothing but love for the pupson.

August 23rd, why do I think he looks so mature?
Just the daily chill.
This is Lorenzo's pretty mom.  And maybe his dad behind her!? She is a Staffordshire  Terrier and dad is believed to be a pavement special: German shepherd, Africanis, mix!

First day at our home, Aug 7th.
Took this for size reference. I'm a size 8UK/9.5US.  He looks like a furry chicken deer.
This was our first sighting of him on African Tail's Facebook page.  He is 10wks here.

South African dance documentary films: "I dance as if I have gun to my head" Pop, Lock 'n Roll


There are incredible stories to be told.  And dancers who use their body to express and encapsulate emotion is a language, a story in itself.  I filmed African Cypher Dance Session on my phone at Fly on the Wall Production House in Cape Town, December 16th, 2011: Dance crews that perform and compete at contests like the Red Bull Beat Battle in South Africa and around the world.  Check the trailer link below.

  I have always been captivated by music and dance.  I couldn't resist the urge to film on my phone in the dark warehouse above Roeland St in Cape Town.  The pantsula artists had woven a whole sequence of comedy, sex, violence and gender roles with innovative movements that put the whole cypher into a hypnosis.
Now, another fresh young filmaker, Ziggy Hofmeyr, is raising funds to share a story with the world about dance, love and quest.  Pop, Lock 'n Roll -- Indiegogo: http://igg.me/p/191398

  If we support filmmakers, creactivists, dancers: Culture . . . then we will be preserving a tapestry of identity.   Go on to IndieGogo and support the projects that speak to you. Or better yet, tell us when your next project is!

Watch the film African Cypher, and support South African films like Pop, Lock 'n Roll to be made.

Zereshk

I love these little berries of sour goodness. Zereshk as I grew up knowing them always found themselves in Giti's blissful rice.  Was so happy when I was tagged in this photo.  I may need to plant my own Beriberis.

Refashioning Manoula's Dress

I am refashioning my mom's dress for the love revolution festival wedding we are soon to be planning for next year.  I am going to see the dress soon and wear it with such pleasure- restructuring it with Ronel's help. Here is a picture of the detail, the hand beaded parts my mom did for her wedding in 1969.  Today is my parent's anniversary.  It was a Priscilla gown, she explains to me.  Whatever it is, I will love to use it's vintage allure. I can't wait to see how it evolves into a three-in-one gown of beautiful feminine love and powah.
