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 :)
