(I) *Salient Seasonal Quotation:
“The fool digs /w a hammer
The wise /w a (Qu)?”
~Modern Renaissance Proverb
I have been reflecting recently on the difference between power & force. When engaging /w others in confrontation I have done my best to ask (Qu)? from a place of curiosity & learned that this is far more powerful than forcing preconceived notions on another in order to get my desired outcome.
An instance has been through my romantic pursuit of a woman I have come to call my “Angel of Death Metal”. I am learning to be patient, allowing her the time she needs to feel comfortable & in doing so am realizing that to be patient is far more powerful than trying to force a relationship at any other pace than organic. This has come through consistent (Qu)? not only /w her, but also /w myself.
We can unearth so much more from ourselves & others when we are patient & curious enough to ask (Qu)? ~ a notion I admittedly have fallen short of far too often.
(II) Modern Renaissance Reading:
A short expose into the life of an artistic genius.
Jean Michel has been a large inspiration as of late to explore the childish & playful side of my art using crayons.
I have even adopted the symbolism of the crown to adorn my own artwork
(III) Music to Immerse in Listening:
I discovered this track during a writing session that included (Nikka Coffee Grain Whiskey) amidst the soothing sound of pouring rain just outside my studio table.
The piano rings like a musical storm, relentless yet gentle in its melodic composition. I find myself fascinated & drawn into its beauty through each listen.
It has also furthered my desire to understand musical theory in order to deconstruct & cultivate a greater appreciation of the music I listen to.
(IV) Such Brutal, Much Beauty:
