Image: Just Floating On The Tears

It is said that time heals all wounds but perhaps that time comes in a different state of existence or unexpected ways and connections. I woke up this morning, before my alarm clock went off, from a vivid dream about my dad. It felt like the universe was telling me today was a day that someone somewhere might need to hear this ❤️

I used to paint exclusively in an effort to heal myself and my own wounds. Nowadays, I paint to hopefully inspire, but more so in an effort to save a life, perhaps one I don’t even know. I would love to help people grow but the first step to growth is survival…and some days merely surviving is growth. Hold on. The strongest often have the toughest battles. You can handle this 🔥

It is said that time heals all wounds but perhaps that time comes in a different state of existence or unexpected ways and connections. I woke up this morning, before my alarm clock went off, from a vivid dream about my dad. In an effort to shift my attention, I opened up IG and the first thing I saw was a beautiful story shared by Cat Zingano addressing the same thing. It felt like the universe was telling me today was a day that someone somewhere might need to hear this.

As every story has a past, present, and future, what may at first glimpse appear to be non-objective abstraction is in fact segmentations of energetic imagery interacting and breathing through the boundlessness of space and time.

Featured: .38 With A .38 (The Speed Of Eternal Stillness). This painting reflects the fraction of a second it takes to change an entire connection of intertwined lives and energies. It depicts a suicide victim being embraced by an angel at the moment of impact. I used to paint exclusively in an effort to heal myself and my own wounds. Nowadays, I paint to hopefully inspire, but more so in an effort to save a life, perhaps one I don’t even know. I would love to help people grow but the first step to growth is survival…and some days merely surviving is growth. Hold on.

I just wanted to share some the discrepancies found with the flagged images.  On top are images of people of color- all flagged as adult content. Below that are two examples of nude paintings that were not flagged, and were also coincidently white women. I scrolled back about 6 years and found maybe 100-150 images flagged – so not that many were flagged comparatively. Now, there were nude and fully clothed paintings of white women that were flagged, but the images that were most commonly flagged were often created by, and depicting people of minority groups and groups that are often discriminated against. As I mentioned my own wedding photos were flagged (I’m married to a woman btw) It just hurt. I know it’s just a program but seeing that red flag that you’re deemed inappropriate- even if it is wrongly flagged- its hard to see, its sad really.

The images are small, because I zoomed way out, so I could scroll quicker on my dashboard. So I’ll give you their titles and artists below.

(You may wonder why I’m doing this now- since it’s been about a month since the changes on tumblr- My computer broke, I’m using my wife’s old computer and it doesn’t like tumblr it takes forever do do anything on here- but I’ve got a lot of free time today)
