David Blaine is an Amazing Human!

“As a magician I try to show things to people that seem impossible. And I think magic, whether I’m holding my breath or shuffling a deck of cards, is pretty simple. It’s practice, it’s training, and it’s – It’s practice, it’s training and experimenting, while pushing through the pain to be the best that I can be. And that’s what magic is to me, so, thank you.”

After watching this talk I have far more of an interest and respect for David Blaine then I did before. I’ve heard great things about his book from Random talks with Kevin Rose and Tim Ferriss and plan to order Mysterious Stranger: A Book of Magic this week. It’s in the speech, it’s in the quote above, it’s now on a sticky note above my desk … plain and simple once of the most inspirational reminders to hear daily “– It’s practice, it’s training and experimenting, while pushing through the pain to be the best that I can be” David Blaine

“The reality of the society that we’re in is there are thousands and thousands of people out there leading lives of quiet, screaming desperation, where they work long, hard hours at jobs they hate to enable them to buy things they don’t need to impress people they don’t like.”

Location . downtown Asheville, North Carolina USA

This was a super fun and inspiring day! I received the job based on a continuing series of photographs documenting the journey of local indie rock band The Enemy Lovers.  Being able to photograph a subject that has changed my life { yoga } in a city that I love { asheville } and get paid to do so, oh man it was a fantastic experience! I was definitely nervous about my first yoga / first real model shoot and grateful to run into some good friends downtown during the day of the shoot that helped ease the nerves.  Also grateful to the friends who offered support and equipment for free prior to the shoot!

Feed your Spirit w/ Sir Ken Robinson: Bring on the learning revolution!

The first TED talk by Sir Ken Robinson was among the first TED Talks I had ever seen and made a profound impact on my life.  Til this day it’s still one of my favorite talks that I quote parts of to just about every person I meet!  The talk above is the follow up to that first talk 4years ago and it’s just an absolutely brilliant 20minutes.  I’ve watched it twice and feel I have quite a few more viewings in me to digest all the magnificent words of wisdom.

Watch the first talk >>here<<

May we all share to help Enlighten, Entertain and Educate!

Focus & Flow - Great Motivation from the super energy charged Tony Robbins

Focus = Feelings “Where focus goes Energy Flows”

It took me a long long time to understand what all the hype was around Mr. Anthony Robbins, I get it now!  He’s a truly special human being sharing a great and priceless gift with human kind.  I’d love to see his wisdom implemented in school systems especially with teenagers!  The older I get and more experiences in life I have the more I feel emotional well being is way more important then all those Math, Science and English classes combined.
