Move, Learn, Eat

I recently came across these amazing short films that are based on these three concepts. After seeing them I quickly pondered over how surreal it must have been to be in all of those places in such a short amount of time and yet to have captured moments that will last a life time. Being an artist I love creativity in every form and the way they presented theirs through these short films was one form I had yet to discover. 

There is nothing so enticing as one's thirst for learning about things outside of themselves. 

I love everything about these documentaries as they capture so much life in such a short segment. My favorite of the three is the one titled learn because that really captured the essence of what they set out to do, create.

Palate & Palette

Often times we hear words in the English language not realizing someone can be referring to two different things with a word that sounds like another. One of them I often come across is palate and palette. The first refers to your taste in food and the second refers to a flat surface that holds and mixes paint. Much like the first definition they both refer to taste in that it is the painters taste which paints mix well and which ones don't. 

I recently moved into a new place and it is so great to be in a place that has all the potential for decorating. This again is a beautiful concept that revolves around taste. On that note I wanted to find something that would bring my room together and I recently decided to re-edit an old photo, the re-edit is below :)

With school around the corner I can't be more excited to settle in and get ready for my busy fall schedule and finishing this really brought that extra sense of accomplishment to my week. 

Bringing the food palate back into the mix, food too can be a work of art in that it can become multidimensional and really be at the discretion of the persons palate. To date I have had the opportunity to try quite a few different cuisines I was not exposed to until I entered college. One of the places I visited last year was not only unique in that it was a fusion restaurant but everything about it stated clean, modern, and tasteful. The restaurant based in Dallas is called Lumi its an empanada and dumpling kitchen. If you are ever in the Dallas area I highly suggest you try it. I ordered such a beautiful mix of flavors that day it was definitely art for my palate :)

Movie Time

Every once in a while I like to go see a movie in the theaters; at least once a season a movie at the drive-in.

I am a fan of a lot of different types of movies but my all time favorite are romantic comedies. I love to laugh and I love a good love story :)  

Recently I went to see Larry Crowne, a beautiful movie about change and embracing life today. I loved the concept from the moment I saw the previews and I loved the movie! With out giving any spoilers the base story line of the movie is that Larry, played by Tom Hanks, looses his job and was downsized because he had no potential to move up in the company due to a lack of being college educated. Being a college student this hit home with me. 


This movie appeals to the common person, this very issue, of a lack of education has been a downfall for many Americans today but the movie was beautifully done in that he went back to school and embraced life with out complaining! Everything about the movie from the character's lives that intermix with his to the way the movie ends is beautiful ~

A great Beethoven piece :)

Bach on the cello, so beautiful!

Thanking the audience for such an overwhelming turnout, it was standing room only!
An interesting piece, not my fav but he is amazingly talented!

and it was so lovely! 

Music is such a powerful thing for the body- even though we hear it, music really affects all of our senses to an extent. Not only can it take you on a journey visually but when eating music can affect the rate in which you eat and it can affect your sense of touch by changing your mood when you allow it to, think art gallery :) 

I am a visual learner and love to meditate on things above while listening to such beautiful melodies. 
I love to engulf myself in a great song, I particularly love worship and a great jazz instrumental both offer such different but beautiful elements. 

Another aspect I love about music is its ability to inspire when working, I love editing to music!
