Light shines

Bright like my mind…

Evoking a big gigantic smile…

Stimulates my mind like the music of Miles…

Success floods these eyes…

Freedom like a Midwest wind blew by…

Thanks to the most high…

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.

The RestSometimes being ambitious isn’t what it’s cracked up to be. You look out and see an overwhelming amount of satisfied people and you sometimes question yourself… Wondering, “Am I just weird? Why do I want to improve humanity so much? Is it that serious?” Yes, the overwhelming crowd of complacent, selfish people who are only concerned with their well- being can take a toll. These questions however don’t last long! Times like theseUnique you’re forced to look inside! It is about more richly and more completely experiencing the unique, magnificent value that is already and always within you! Life’s circumstances do not, in and of themselves, enhance or detract from the value of your life! Fulfillment is not about acquiring something that exists outside of you… So if you are a one percenter with dreams and goals beyond yourself, the next time you have a down moment remember to look inside and not at the crowd around…  It’s lonely at the top! See you there!

Becoming yourself….. Jun E!

In Culture, Motivational Speaking, Thoughts on January 31, 2013 at 7:13 pm

Jun E Caniel “I’d rather be hated for who I am, than loved for who I am not.”  Who are you? You ever take a minute in silence to figure out who you are. How are you defined? Why do you do the things you? Is it because your brother, father, mother, sister, uncle, or friend do it? Why? I have discovered that most people do not know themselves. Scared of their own shadows,  they would rather live in societal shadows instead of stepping out into the sunshine of leadership and originality.   Why not Jun Estep out and create your own shadow?  Soak up the greatness of being who you really are without apologies?  Others are constantly searching for things, people, words, and societal doodads to define them.  You do not need those things!  Bombarded with traditions, and other people’s perceptions that imply that “something must be wrong with me”, we turn away from our true selves and fall into place with the ordinary shadows/shells of people who pursue to be nothing more than mediocre.  They are only following the made up perception that they were given, but they have so much more to offer. It is startling Jun E Caniel at times the depths of the things a person will do to feel loved, cool and wanted, when the answer seems so simple.  We are all in search of our own significance, and it stares us in the face when we hurriedly give ourselves a once-over in the bathroom mirror before rushing to our pressing mediocrity.  Life and the beautiful discovery of yourself are hard yet worthwhile. Why take the detour through The Land of Shadows? Be yourself, as God has made you and love that person.

Imagine……

Don’t want to wait till tomorrow. Why put it off another day! Imagine awaking everyday with this sick dream deep in your stomach. It growls like a Lion in the Sahara.  We smile thinking the hunger dreams will go away.. But it keeps growling louder and louder… We spent many years trying to hide it, but now it sticks out like a sore thumb.. Imagine people looking at you as if you had three heads without you having to utter a word.  Mediocre people flee from you at an alarming rate because they can’t take the heat of expectation and feel they must go.Jay and Tiya Caniel Often times we feel very alone and cold, like we are from Mars… We tried to change and fit in to make people feel more comfortable, but the truth is they will be uncomfortable regardless of what we do. So we’ve decided to not apologize for the vision and thoughts that the creator have planted in us… Jun E Caniel

Imagine people looking at you crazy because you do good deeds.. Imagine people attempting to turn pure positivity into something negative… The more real and positive we are it seems like the less support we get, but who cares?  It is our purpose, dream and vision to improve humanity with our lives. Regardless of who walks to the music, we will be dancing like crazy in Jun E Land!.. That is where we reside and Jun E Land is our bubble, if there was a bubble big enough to contain this. The quest for people who have an infinite capacity of not knowing what can be done has been interesting, and it will only get better.  See you at the top! Jun E!
