This beautiful venue played host to a beautiful #union today. (photo by me - @tonita_perry ) built in 1897, the venue is a former #catholic#church turned cultural center, housing organizations that promote cultural events in #augustaga. just beautiful! the #bride and #groom were gorge! totally love weddings that make me #cry, and this one did not disappoint. takeaway - #love is a #powerful thing. it can make you happy, sad, laugh, cry, crazy, and sane all in a matter of minutes. think about what it does to you for a lifetime! 😍 once you have #had it and #lost, you can't help but want to have love again and again and again. the key is to find it with the right person that you just keep falling in love over and over. you know, the kind that brings a smile on your face just at the sight of them or thinking about them, along with that flip of the stomach. so much so nothing really matters because you got each other. so with this being said, i really love love and can't wait for this type of love to #find me. to the happy couple, the way you looked at each other said it is #forever and here is to a #lifetime of love! now, to the dance floor to get it in; they are playing my song!!!! #wedding#themarshalls#travelphotography

“your children can be around you all day, but if you don’t spend quality time with them and you don’t pay attention to them, talk to them and listen to them, it doesn’t matter that they’re just around you”
Qilin / kirin / keilun*
this is something you may never see in your #lifetime up close. heavy responsibility. there’s lost layers to #martialarts, it’s not just about training to get in a ring. which is great. but, the first layer (and by far the most prevalent and arguably most important) is physical culture. by that, it means an expression of the #human condition through the #language of #movement. there are various categories. for example, “forms” are often a story of some persons struggle and resilience to overcome. the movements are all meant to be interpretive.
then there is stuff like this.. besides the fact it’s extreme leg day training lol.... keilun, lion, dragon dance which is more spiritual in nature. each head has a ceremony to “bring it to life”, and through prayers and rigorous expense in sweat and musicianship you ask for blessings for all of the people, their businesses, and the institutions that support. the other layer is to become the physical representation of that divinity, and to banish all negativity from your space. you play the strength of god on earth, in the body of man and for just a moment elevate to smash all evil intentions and grind it into dust beneath your feet.
but the keilun is the highest in purity. it won’t even step on an ant. the lion and the other dancers got to bow when it comes through. the last part of physical culture is the blueprint relationship between #sifu and todai. si-fu, father and teacher, “because he taught you how to walk.” these are elements that those from the heart of this thing called martial arts wince in pain at the disappearance of it. kind of reminds me of #hiphop, really. #kungfu
