perspective

These are the faces of people wanting to see a change in their country,
These are the faces of people wanting to BE the change in their country,

These are the words for the people of our communities


This is OUR voice
These are not the faces of the homeless,
these are the faces of the hard working americans, these
are tax paying, blue collar citizens of the united states

These are the faces of peaceful people,
that have exhausted their resources,
but have not lost hope
These are the faces of proud people,
passionate people,
people who are standing up for you,
even while you sit down
These are the faces of expression
These are the faces of people who believe in themselves
and that ONE can make a change
These are people with eyes that tell their whole story
without a word
These are the faces of frustration

The faces of hope
These faces of dedication and realization
The faces of life
The faces of our future
These are our faces, full of beauty
and strength

The truth can be like running full speed into a brick wall,
Your body goes numb, you may stumble... even fall
When you get up you know for yourself, what lies ahead
the truth becomes clear, no words can hide a truth once heard,
The truth is that voice in the back of your head,
The one that warms you, whispers, and says
" beware of false hopes, promises and things too good to be true
they usually are, so dont let them fool you"
The truth will truly set you free,
to hear it, to speak it, to see clearly,
Anyone can tell you, anything. and its easy to believe
specially if its what you hoped would be,
But its better to see all that surrounds you, through eyes wide open
Be it ugly, Be it sad, Be it Real, Be it beautiful,
To truly see something for what it is,
Instead of what you want it to be
That is real life....
UNCONDITIONALLY


I always say
" Id rather have the ugly truth than a beautiful lie "

this time the truth hurt

What a beautiful and fun family to photograph


This family was so photogenic
I think its good genes



The grandma was THE best,
I guess you dont get to live that long
without learning a thing or two,







... ( dot dot dot )

I was having a conversation today,
with a friend, about today
today was a tumultuous day...
like any other day
anyway... i realize something in retrospect. I made a comment that went something like this,

the good doesnt even phase or come close to the stupid ass choices (ive made)
Believe that! I will spend the rest of my life trying to catch up... or die trying

That might not be WORD for WORD but... its as close as I remember
anyway... it hits me.
WE ALL MAKE STUPID ASS CHOICES, that we have to live with
grow and learn from, and build off. To walk around with some sense
of guilt in the back of your mind is not only ridiculous, but a waste of time,
energy and strength.
Thats the point! TO LEARN, to learn and to help people
THATS THE POINT.
some people learn from reading, from school, from someone else's error,
and some people like the hard way
"the road less traveled" if u will
to me it just sounds better..
" I took the road less traveled"
instead of
" Im hard headed, stubborn and rebellious, and even if I see 6 people walk into the wall
and it hurts them, I may still want to give it a try for myself.. as in I AM STUPID"

ok... so my lesson to myself is tooooo.... dun dun dun
LEARN TO LET GO
really let go and forgive myself for all of my stupid choices and mistakes....
because we all make them
............
repeatedly...... right?

CHANGE NEVER COMES EASY

So 5:am it hits me... and I am going to share it with anyone who is reading... listening...

YOU HAVE TO BE THE CHANGE YOU WANT TO SEE IN THE WORLD

I know Ive heard this before, and said this before, but tonight.. this morning, it makes perfect sense. I truly have to be the change I want to see in this world. YOU have to be the change you want to see in this world, but thats on you and I can only be responsible for me. You want the world to be more giving, you need to be more giving, you want the world to be more considerate, YOU have to be more considerate, I want the world to be more human, I have to be more human, more kind, caring, loving, graceful, classy, honest, wise, forgiving, hopeful, optimistic, well spoken, loyal, true, faithful, dedicated, hardworking, driven, punctual, I have to be a better example. For myself. For you...
FOR LIFE

I HAVE TO BE THE CHANGE THAT I WANT TO SEE IN THE WORLD
Because everything we are and all that surrounds us, our friends, our life, our partners,
our family, they are examples of us, who we are, WHAT we are
and what we want to be

I HAVE TO BE THE CHANGE THAT I WANT TO SEE IN THE WORLD

Because without change, without meaning, these are just words...
written somewhere, that maybe no one is reading

I HAVE TO BE THE CHANGE THAT I WANT TO SEE IN THE WORLD
