“My Bow Breathing”

VIOLENCE. FRONTAL NUDITY (male and partial female). I give it an R for the violence and M* for the Nudity. Meant for Teens and Adults. *Mature

Could it be the primitive side is just a dream where revenge and justice finds its way to the surface. Walk the path and breathe the breath of the Bow as you follow her on her path. Acting on every breath she takes. This film is intriguing and raises ethical questions. If based on a fictional story that is real, is she just, or is it her path that leads her in all the acts she performs. Gives one a puzzle and will awaken a reaction. What that will be depends on the viewer, I think.

Open up to full screen. Turn up the volume and get absorbed in the completeness of what you will see and experience with all your senses.

“This is a short film about a girl who’s trying to attune her breathing to the movements of her bow, arrow after arrow. But her sporting talent hides her need to retrieve a primitive, violent instinct, an archetype.”

“My Bow Breathing” “IL RESPIRO DELL’ARCO”

from Enrico Maria Artale

You better turn off the lights. And raise the volume!

The film makers first feature film premiered at Venice Film Festival. He is now working on a second feature film project related to this short.

Elizabeth Gilbert: Your elusive creative genius

“Another Day” – Roy Harper

“Another Day”

The kettle’s on,
the sun has gone
another day
She offers me Tibetan tea
on a flower tray

She’s at the door,
she wants to score
She dearly needs to say

I loved you a long time ago, you know
Where the wind’s own forget-me-nots blow
But I just couldn’t let myself go
not knowing what on earth there was to know.

But I wish that I had ’cause I’m feeling so sad
that I never had one of your children.

And across the room, inside a tomb
our chance is waxed and wanes
The night is young,
why are we so hung up
in each others chains?

Forget-Me-Not-field

I must take her,
I must make her
while the dove domains
and feel the juice run as she flies
run my wings under her sighs
as the flames of eternity rise
to lick us with the first born lash of dawn.

Oh really my dear
I can’t see what we fear
Sat here with ourselves in between us.

And at the door
we can’t say more
than just “another day”
and without a sound
I turn around
and I walk away.

A MOVIE THAT PEAKS MY CURIOSITY & PURE FASCINATION WITH A.I. WOULDN’T IT BE GRANDE IF THIS IS A WAY FOR HUMANS TO GAIN IMMORTALITY. I HEARD JUST RECENTLY IT ISN’T FAR INTO THE FUTURE THE POSSIBILITIES ARE THERE. WE MAY JUST SOMEDAY BE ABLE TO UPLOAD OUR MENTAL AWARENESS INTO A COMPUTER. WE COULD GO ON CREATING THOUGHTS. HYPOTHESIZING THEORIES. GROWING IN WISDOM. FEELINGS. I WONDER IF ONE HAS TRANSCENDED WHETHER FEELINGS WOULD BE EXPERIENCED? IN THIS NEW FOUND STATE OF BEING. IT WOULD STILL BE BEING. DO WE NEED A BODY TO BE ALIVE? SUSTENANCE. WHAT IS SUSTENANCE WITHOUT A BODY NEEDING TO BE FED? WOULD OUR SUSTENANCE COME FROM NEW & CONTINUED DISCOVERIES OF AWARENESS? JUST SOME THOUGHTS I AM THROWING OUT FOR PONDERING. IF I WOULDN’T EVER DIE TRANSCENDENCE APPEARS TO BE [ONCE THE KINKS ARE WORKED OUT] A PERFECT CONTINUATION. WOULD WE MISS THE TACTILE CONNECTIONS? COULD A COMPUTER BE TAUGHT [PROGRAMMED] TO CAUSE US TO SIMULATE THE SENSATION OF TOUCH & OTHER OF OUR SENSES. EXCITING. CANNOT WAIT UNTIL THE RELEASE OF “TRANSCENDENCE”ON DVD or STREAMING.  I <3 JOHNNY DEPP


“Transcendence” Official Trailer 2014

Two leading computer scientists work toward their goal of Technological Singularity, as a radical anti-technology organization fights to prevent them from creating a world where computers can transcend the abilities of the human brain.

“Transcendence”: There is a time factor involved. A terminally ill scientist downloads his consciousness into a computer. This grants him power beyond his wildest dreams, and soon he becomes unstoppable.

Sci-Fi Thriller. Dr. Will Caster (Johnny Depp) is the foremost researcher in the field of Artificial Intelligence, working to create a sentient machine that combines the collective intelligence of everything ever known with the full range of human emotions. His highly controversial experiments have made him famous, but they have also made him the prime target of anti-technology extremists who will do whatever it takes to stop him. However, in their attempt to destroy Will, they inadvertently become the catalyst for him to succeed-to be a participant in his own transcendence. For his wife Evelyn (Rebecca Hall) and best friend Max Waters (Paul Bettany), both fellow researchers, the question is not if they can…but if they should. Their worst fears are realized as Will’s thirst for knowledge evolves into a seemingly omnipresent quest for power, to what end is unknown. The only thing that is becoming terrifyingly clear is there may be no way to stop him. IMdB…

“I Am One of the Searchers”

water ocean gif

sun rays into forest“I Am One of the Searchers”  There are, I believe, millions of us. We are not unhappy, but neither are we really content. We continue to explore life, hoping to uncover its ultimate secret. We continue to explore ourselves, hoping to understand. We like to walk along the beach, we are drawn by the ocean, taken by its power, its unceasing motion, its mystery and unspeakable beauty. We like forests and mountains, deserts and hidden rivers, and the lonely cities as well. Our sadness is as much a part of our lives as is our laughter. To share our sadness with one we love is perhaps as great a joy as we can know. Unless it be to share our laughter.

sunrise in the mountainsWe searchers are ambitious only for life itself, for everything beautiful it can provide.Most of all we love and want to be loved. We want to live in a relationship that will not impede our wandering, not prevent our search, nor lock us in prison walls; that will take us for what little we have to give. We do not want to have to prove ourselves to another or compete for love.

For wanderers, dreamers, and lovers,

for lonely men and women

who dare to ask from life everything

good and beautiful. It is for those who

are too gentle to live among wolves.

A Writer’s Diary
Virginia Woolf – Part #9

I believe
that during
the past year
I can trace
some increase
of ease
in my
professional
writing

which I attribute
to my casual
half hours
after tea.

Moreover
there looms
ahead of me
the shadow
of some kind
of form
which a diary
might attain to.

I might
in the course
of time
learn
what it is
that one
can make
of this loose,
drifting
material
of life;

finding
another use
for it
than the use
I put it to,
so much more
consciously
and
scrupulously,
in fiction.

TELL ME A STORY


Why We Choose Suicide – Mark Henick at TEDxToronto

No one even knows you are gone.
I don’t have a choice. I have a gun
The guidance counselor tackled
me to the floor to keep me alive.
I was so normal.
If I hadn’t gotten the help
I clearly needed.

Mental illness talked about
behind closed doors but
not with it opened.
It is time to throw open
those closed doors.

When you are suicidal
you hear the voices
telling you
you are not good enough.

Should I hang on for just
one more day. For what.
It doesn’t get better.
I had very few choices
in my life and this was
definitely one.

I just didn’t want it
to hurt anymore.
To feel like I have
control over my life.

The flashing lights came.
The police.
People were watching.
Some idiot shouted,
“Jump you coward.”

I could feel the edges of
the concrete under the
bottom of my feet.

Someone grabbed me
and they pulled me
back in.

Our mental
health needs to be
nurtured.

My perceptions had
collapsed.
We rationalize
other peoples perceptions.

We need to better
understand suicide.
No one commits suicide.

Take charge of our own
mental health when we
get to the doctor to
check our health.

We need to do something
about suicide. A leading
cause of death with mothers
is suicide. When a 1/4 of
15 to 25 year olds die by
suicide. That is not
acceptable.

Those thinking about
suicide today. Do something
about it. Change things.

Every single day as
though you had just
one life to live.
