Will it ever end? Is there anywhere to hide? ” Food plan relapse ” 2010


repetition

Relapse
——-

Today is a relapse day.
Escaping from words of condemnation I prefer to hide behind anything that shields me from the reality of this moment.

Maybe a tree is wide enough.
They have existed for so long, have witnessed it all and are still standing tall and erect, nothing budging them, their gargantuan trunk, sturdy and comforting.

Maybe I should hide behind the reverie of an outside component bringing me to salvation,
or find assuagement behind excuses such as holidays, festivities, people, a country, finances…
Anything to push off, what should be accomplished today.

Is it that operose to adhere to the agenda and utilize the guidance at hand?
Is relapse actually a way of hurling a conniption in the face of existence?

Our overactive mind is hushed with the saying of the wise ( which I have mentioned before )
” Repetition is the only true form of permanence that nature can achieve ”

Well, that is a beginning.
Repetition is all we have achieved until now, but the other way round. Our energies were just badly channeled, all we have to do is ” repetition ” the right way this time.
It appears after all, that our wrangles are a result of our persistence in questioning life’s ( or God, if you will ) role in the realization of our endeavor.

Maybe we should hide less, think less and trust more.

That would simplify a mind in effervescence. Ideally, the highest state of grace would be, to do what is in front of us, at this precise moment every day of our lives.

Re-energized by those self-pep talks, I uproot those trees with a bulldozer, ( figuratively speaking of course ) destroy those outside factors, organize my holidays and birthdays with my sponsor, push in as many implements as possible, mark down in a book the keywords that will have the power to drag me out of my moroseness when needed and importune for the zeal to keep on doing so every moment of my recovery.

Jackson Pollok Documentary


So, this is the video I had promised to post, they call it a documentary, so be it. ( A few years back I had found the biography on you tube )
It is long but whoever is a fan of his, will enjoy every extra detail he/she can get. You can always skip the bits you don’t have time to see, but personally, I’m going to take a time in the evening, when all is quiet and peaceful, and sink into this surreal dimension!
Let me know how it went for you.

Jackson Pollok was a major influence in my first steps into the world of Art. I was fascinated by his Technic, his philosophy, in short his personality … The aura that exuded through his ways of working and being. For whoever is a fan, I’ll post a video with a short biography, I hope you will enjoy it! 🙂

Celebrating my new and organized Blog!!


Improvement, team work

Hi fellow readers,

I finally can shout out loud, my blog is nearly flawless, I say carefully nearly…Because there is no such thing as perfection, there will continually be room for improvement, but considering… it has come a long way.

There is an ” About ” and it has all been categorized, so it is much easier to pick the subject of your choosing.
I have to admit that with my computer skills I would have never been able to obtain those results ( or it might have taken much longer and many crises) and have eternal gratitude toward the patience my family excelled at during these ” trying ” times 🙂

P.S Does anyone have a clue of how to put a ” personal link ” on a Gravatar profile? ( Yes, it’s non ending! 🙂 )

Have a joyful day!

Chocolate Storm & Collision of musical notes ( Desert storm or Chocolate splash? ) 2009

Today I felt in a playful mood and wanted to put you up to a challenge.
Do you want to be the ones to decide for the name of this painting? My idea was Desert storm but today I thought maybe something lighter would make it more fun, so I’m leaving it in your hands, I’ll go according to the most votes on the name chosen and correct it.
Fair enough?

Free fall 23 Miles for World Record!


This is so amazing I felt it marked history and wanted to share it with all of you.
Be prepared for your adrenaline to shoot up!

blished on Oct 14, 2012 by Left4Green
With favorable weather on hand in Roswell, New Mexico, Sunday, Felix Baumgartner’s Red Bull Stratos team scrambled to make an early-morning launch of his daring mission the edge of space. Liftoff occurred at 8:30 a.m. PDT, and Baumgartner is now on his way up the stratosphere, where he’s hoping to break a 52-year-old skydiving record just days after his first attempt at the record was aborted.

The Austrian daredevil is now being carried by a massive balloon to the upper edge of the stratosphere, where, from an astonishing 23 miles (120,000 feet), he will open the hatch of his small capsule, and jump out.

The climb to jump altitude is estimated to be two hours long, depending on how much ballast is required as they climb. (Stay tuned to video above for updates.)

During the marathon free-fall fraught with risk, he’ll attempt to become the first skydiver to break the sound barrier. If he does so, it will come 65 years to the day after Chuck Yeager first achieved that goal in his X-1A.

Understandably, butterflies have been multiplying, especially after Tuesday’s emotional stop-and-go roller coaster that ended on a sour note after a gust of wind blew the large balloon toward the ground, forcing the abort.

“I couldn’t tell what was happening with the balloon because I was in the capsule,” said Baumgartner. “I want this to happen this year. We’ve made it so far. There’s no turning back. We’re here, we’ve got the helium, and we’re good to go.”

If Baumgartner and his team succeed, the leap will mark the culmination of the Red Bull Stratos project, which has been seven years in the making and has included practice jumps from 71,580 and 97,146 feet (in March and July, respectively). Viewers can watch the launch, jump, and post-jump news conference via the live feed posted above.

STORY: Behind the massive Red Bull Stratos balloon, and its climb to the edge of space

Baumgartner, 43, a former military parachutist and star BASE jumper, expects to reach a top speed of about 690 mph, or Mach 1.2, and break the sound barrier.

Although he’ll wear a high-tech pressurized space suit, among the risks he faces are the boiling of his blood, violent spinning, and unknown effects of the sonic boom.

Baumgartner also hopes to break an altitude record that has stood since 1960, when Joseph Kittinger, a former U.S. Air Force colonel, jumped from a gondola beneath a helium balloon from 102,800 feet.

Kittinger is now in charge of flight operations and safety for the Red Bull Stratos project.

“Of course it’s not easy,” Kittinger said. “It takes a special combination [of talent] and the best partner you can have is Felix Baumgartner.”

Baumgartner will make his leap from a pressurized space capsule hoisted above the desert floor by a 55-story-tall stratospheric balloon.

After a free-fall that will span more than five minutes, he’ll deploy his parachute about 5,000 feet above the desert floor.

Family and friends are in Roswell and Baumgartner’s mother, Eva, stated that a successful ending to this dramatic story will be her son’s “biggest dream coming true.”

To give people an idea of what it’s like plummeting so quickly from so high, during the preparation jump last March Baumgartner set a world free-fall speed record of 364.4 mph. The free-fall spanned 3 minutes, 43 seconds, and included a plunge through temperatures as cold as minus-75 degrees.

Baumgartner became so cold that he could hardly move his hands, and the free-fall was so long that he had to fight the urge to deploy the parachute too early. Tuesday’s 23-mile jump will be significantly more challenging.

Said Baumgartner of the mental struggles: “You get claustrophobic fast in the pressurized suit. You start to let your mind go, and you think of people who lost their lives trying to do what Joe Kittinger did. You have to get your mind in a different place. Count backwards … whatever you have to do.”

The Red Bull Stratos team has maintained all along that this is no mere stunt. It’s hoped that the extensive research that went into this mission will benefit future astronauts, and make their missions safer. Area 51 Unbelievable

This painting was inspired by the creation of the lioness painting I had posted on my very first page ( Hello world! ) as a new blogger.
I hope you enjoy it as much as I did painting it.
P.S Sorry about the photo quality but I have a hard time around the editing system, thanks for your understanding
