Photos & Haikus III

Happy new year Friends..

Ring out false pride in place and blood …. The civic slander and the spite… Ring in the love of truth and right… Ring in the common love of good.

A verse from “Ring Out, Wild Bells” , a New Year’s poem by Alfred, Lord Tennyson.

Here’s Photos and Haikus III with photos that signify new beginnings, the rising of a new dawn. Enjoy and be inspired.

STAYING INSPIRED

Hello Friends,

Hope everyone is rounding up the year nicely and you enjoyed your seasonal festivities. Today is all about inspiration. Much needed for the coming year you will agree.

in·spi·ra·tion

:Divine guidance or influence exerted directly on the mind and soul of humankind; something/someone that makes someone want to do something or that gives someone an idea about what to do or create;a force or influence that inspires someone

Inspiration (from the Latin inspirare, meaning “to breathe into”) refers to an unconscious burst of creativity in a literary, musical, or other artistic endeavor; a good idea

To be inspired is one thing, to remain inspired is another. I hope the following quotes and the  info-graphic of 12 tips will help to keep you maintained in that perspective; physically, mentally, and spiritually.

A Project Highlight of 2013

Hello Everyone,

Countdown! Countdown!  to the season’s festivities – Christmas, coming New Year et al. I know everyone’s getting busy busy busy. A friendly reminder of the essence of the celebrations – love & kindness, peace and joy, the ultimate gift of salvation from the reason for the season – Jesus! And as we climb the stairway of life, I pray it’s upward ever, backward never.

As a Creative Arts Consultant, I get to be involved with quite a few fun  and interesting projects (many people have wondered what I do professionally, apart from my artistic talent of singing/songwriting so this should clear that air, see right section for more info) and this year, a particular project was one of the highlights.  A pioneering,  phenomenal, history making project where I got to use practically almost all of my skills. 🙂 It was an experience. I was on board the team as a PR/Event Promotions Consultant ( My company Dreamweavers Entertainment) and as a Vocalist for the production of ‘Wedlock of the gods’, a play written by Nigeria’s first female playwright – the late Dr Zulu Sofola. The first of its kind in the US diaspora and a forerunner for more to come, an authentically African stage play, directed by New Nigeria Cinema & Nollywood’s Wale Ojo took place May/June 2013 in Atlanta. Thanks to Zulu Sofola Productions and Chi Ife Productions for making this possible.

Thanks to my friends at KokoAtDawn Productions who recorded these behind the scenes ‘mini doc’ clips of the journey of the production. Watch below.
