Who Knew….

We always wanted more… A life worth fighting for!  A life worth living and dying for!  A legacy that could never be taken from us. We started out pretty naive about this whole thing. Dreamy eyed, with milk all over our breath… Jay Caniel She said she wanted to be an artist and improve women’s lives all around the world. He simply wanted to improve humanity…

Who knew those dreams would carry us?  Who knew that the air we breathe is fueled by images projected on the walls of our minds? Who knew that kid with invisible headphones on would get a pair? Lol, I’m trotting right along with no ears to the world, a big smile on my face, and a blockbuster hit on my mind… We will continue to direct this movie behind the scenes…I can’t wait till it’s complete. Get your popcorn ready…

Wonderful

Just like it used to be.. Wonderful! That giddy feeling inside that makes you just want to smile.. That Jun E Wonderful feeling of excitement in your stomach before a big game.. That bell rings and we run aimlessly to recces… Come on you hear that bell.. Wonderful.. Eating the vegetables to get to dessert… Boy, and you thought those were rough days… Getting your homework done so you can play outside… Wonderful… A smile from a stranger that makes you break out and imitate creation… Wonderful…  Screaming your favorite songs at the top of your lungs and it actually sounds good… Wonderful…  Lol getting the note back and “yes” is checked… Wonderful… Take you back to the days of real creation… When you laid in bed and dreamed… Oh what a feeling… I call it wonderful!  Close your eyes and count to 10 and the whole world changes… The days of the 5 second rule… Food falls and you can eat it within 5 seconds.. Lol some of you had 20 secs… I’m not judging… Just wonderful..

I’m guilty ’cause I know some of you have grown out of those days, but I still live it… I can feel the love move throughout my body as the guitar strings pull and my finger hit these keys. Wonderful… There’s nothing like living in the present moment and creating the things that you want. I challenge you to live that wonderful life. I just want to spread this feeling… The feeling of living, laughing, loving and creating your legacy…. See you at the top! Wonderful!

Work In Progress: Sankofa Painting

In Art, Culture, Design, Uncategorized on September 4, 2013 at 7:07 pm

tumblr_lkothsuolx1qb9ql8o1_500I started a painting a couple months ago and I wasn’t sure what to add.  Last night, as I was flipping through a stack of inspiring quotes, symbols, etc., I found my list of Adinkra symbols.  Both Sankofa symbols jumped out at me.  Perhaps it is a testament to my current state of mind.  Sankofa Bird

Our trip to Mexico in August rekindled a desire to learn more about my past and the lives of my ancestors.  The Sankofa symbols mean “return and get it”, learn from the past.  What can I learn from not just my ancestors’ lives, but also from my own past?

This painting is my first bout of experimental play with the bird version of the Sankofa symbol.  My mind has already been formulating different versions of both symbols and it’s exciting to think about!  photo 2(7)

My heart skips a beat as I think about the possibilities in this painting, as it will most likely evolve into a mixed media piece.  :-)   It feels good to be creating again.  And it feels good to get serious about creating and selling my works.  This is a new journey, a path that veers off slightly from the main road of Jun E Caniel the clothing line yet runs parallel and inevitably leads to the same destination.

Indeed, this is the time to make great things happen.

Oh the power of words! In life we all have desires. I have discovered in  life, that we get what we are looking for. The key is to train our thoughts to focus on the things we desire and get it off of the things we don’t desire.  Our thoughts are the starting point to our destiny. We must make sure weThinking Jun E... guard our thoughts with our very lives. Some people spend most of their time guarding people and things such as cars, houses, credit scores, jobs, titles etc. The most significant thing a person will produce is a direct result of their thoughts. We must guard our beautiful minds against the propaganda of the news, the vulgarity in music, films and other streams of the media. Its a trap, and once you start in the rat race its hard to get out. We become brain washed and dependent on garbage.  Greatness begins and ends in the mind.  The next time you ask for something, remember that you will get exactly what you want. A Jun E poet has correctly stated this universal truth through these lines

I bargained with Life for a penny

And Life would pay no more,

However I begged at evening

When I counted my scanty store.

For Life is a just employer,

He gives you what you ask,

But once you have set the wages,

Why, you must bear the task

I worked for a menial’s hire,

Only to learn, dismayed,

That any wage I had asked of Life,

Life would have willingly paid….
