Golden Knicks

22 May

Only on New York subways do you find such interesting creativity & visible artwork.  On the subway I captured a golden KNICK statue…. See for yourself.  Is he the ultimate & timeless Knicks fan for all time?

Are you a bigger Knicks fan than him?

Inception

21 Jul

I had the opportunity to see Inception on Saturday night and I let the movie impressed go see the flick.  For those that have no watched I’m not going to ruin it for you, however I did leave with some lasting questions/thoughts..

An idea is extremely powerful no mater what the source.

Where do dreams and reality intersect?

“A Dream Deferred”

12 Jul

“What happens to a dream deferred?

Does it dry up
like a raisin in the sun?
Or fester like a sore–
And then run?
Does it stink like rotten meat?
Or crust and sugar over–
like a syrupy sweet?

Maybe it just sags
like a heavy load.

Or does it explode?”

This is one of my favorite poems of all time; there is an expiration on opportunity.  Dream wildly and never wait to act on them.

Aggresive Huh?

10 Jul

Here we have 2 celebrities, 50 Cent & Floyd Mayweather, who have predicated their careers on  an image of aggression and violence.  As you can see a photographer took a picture of them sharing drink.  Is it me or does it seem suspect that these two are posing “hard” as ever while drinking a Strawberry daiquiri.  Let me repeat for emphasis, they are “grilling” the camera with daiquiri’s in their hand; not beer, not malt liquor, not cognac but a fruity mixed feminine beverage.  Now don’t get me wrong I’ve had a few daiquiri’s in my day, but I have never sold myself out to be a violent/ uber-aggressive alpha male or made a career out of it.  I’m not questioning their manhood, I’m questioning the image.

I just thought it was funny to see this picture and witness these two “grimey” fellas enjoy a choice beverage.  Maybe just maybe someone in their camps will inform them its okay to lay off eating gangsta cookies for a while.  I think it would be a great idea to post this picture in every club/bar as a reminder for all the “party thugs” to let it go and act normal.  Wouldn’t it be nice?  Enjoy that strawberry in your drink tough guy!

Subway Characters

15 Jun

On my ride to work today I happened to capture a character on the subway! Only in NYC are shenanigans like this visible at 7:15 am.   Moreover it does add some animation to my daily commute and makes for great workplace/small talk fodder.

Stone Mouse

I stole this but its cool! A stone mouse go figure?

Greatest Fear…

24 May

Perhaps my favorite quote of all time:

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.  Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.  It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.  We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?  Actually, who are you not to be?  You are a child of God.  Your playing small does not serve the world.  There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you.  We are all meant to shine, as children do.  We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.  It is not just in some of us; it is in everyone.  And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.  As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”  ~Marianne Williamson, A Return to Love: Reflections on the Principles of “A Course in Miracles,” 1992 (commonly misattributed to Nelson Mandela, 1994 inauguration speech
