Hello, Friends... With sadness, I'm writing to let you know that I've decided to cancel all my March shows. 😢 I'm at a high risk of getting seriously ill from #COVID19 because of my #disability & small lung capacity, so it seems foolish for me to say "the show must go on".

1/11 Black and white picture of Gaelynn playing her violin upright like a tiny cello. At the top of the page in green cursive letters:
Furthermore, I want to set a good example in my community to protect others who are elderly, #disabled or immunocompromised. I'm frustrated by the message that "only the old & the chronically ill" are at risk of death, because so many people I care about are in these groups! 2/11
I don't want at-risk people to be viewed as expendable or collateral damage. We all know & care about at least one at-risk person, so we should all be limiting our unnecessary social interactions to minimize suffering... Unfortunately, I think concerts fit this description.

#MerchantsofInstamojo

If you are looking for vibrant, symmetrical, larger than life artwork, head to Annada Menon's Instamojo online store.
The 27-year-old artist from Pune picked up the brush at a very young age, and there was no turning back since.

#MondayMotivation
Annada creates alluring art and to make it useful for her customers, she creates them on objects of utility, like coasters and notebooks. She also customizes her #art for customers, while keeping her artistic individuality alive!

#Womenpreneurs #entrerpreneurs
She uses Instamojo to collect payments in bulk from her customers for large orders, and needless to say, we played a small role in helping Annada keep her #creativity alive whilst running a full-time #business.

1.A quick thread about General Patton’s death and the spread of Communism.
(If unfamiliar with General’s story, Ronald Regan narrates this 30 min official video about Patton’s life.)


But lets dig deeper…
2.As WWII was coming to a close General Patton wanted to continue the fight against Communism, believing he could crush the Soviets in 6 weeks. Patton believed we had not liberated Europe and had set the conditions for the Cold War.
3. General Patton was angry about the political failures of WWII. His intimate knowledge of WWII coupled with his fearlessness & popularity made him a threat to many powerful people who wanted him dead.

1) Let's talk about #art and the #UBI. @AndrewYang, anytime you want to talk, I'm ready!
2) I'm an #artist of sorts. I #paint, I get paid for it, I teach some classes, so let's say that I'm an #artist for the sake or argument, shall we? If you're on board, I'm on board. Let's get this thread started.
3) We could wax poetically for hours about the social good that #art does. There are thinkers and philosophers who have said more than I ever could about this and I suggest that you do your own research. Discovery is #beauty.

#JhelumFables , a 5 day visual storytelling workshop which I am conducting with youth in #Kashmir kicked off today. There couldn't have been a better classroom than the picturesque houseboat ROOTS situated on river Jhelum.

P.S: The best way to spend holidays in company of ✏️📸
#JHELUMFABLES
On day two of the visual storytelling workshop I interacted with each participant. We did small excercises to enhance imagination. Later they chose quaint corners of Roots houseboat situated on river #Jhelum & scribbled stories in company of wood & water. #Kashmir
Light experiments inside classroom on day 3 of #JhelumFables
A chair placed on the wooden Verandah of the houseboat facing west became a prop for portrait shooting- as participants tried side lighting & back lighting before venturing out on the river banks with their camera & pen

It’s #Monday, I’m boozing it up at a 4 seat bar, the #barkeep is a long pourer, and I’m all fucking set if I get something stuck between my teeth.👇🙃 #RandomThoughts #drinking #OutAndAbout
Shooting the shit with a friend, she’s proud to be doing well with her plants - unusual for her.

The key was a #video explaining the benefits of pruning.

She needs REASONS. She got them.

Apparently, pruning in a particular manner stimulates growth hormones.

Of course, this led to me initiating a discussion about the #movie I just watched on Hulu, called “The German Doctor.”

The main character was Josef Mengele. #ThisHappened

People, this is why I’m known in my circles as “The Black Hole Of Conversation.” SMTH

just some smears on the "page" make all the difference in expression (same outline, etc)

just a little smudge, or an erasure highlight transforms from one face to another

Objective #art is possible only when somebody has attained to a higher plane of being; it is created by those who have reached the peak. They can see the peak and they can see the valley both. They can see the height, the beauty, the sickness and the ugliness of #humanity.
They can see deep down in the dark valleys. They can manage to create some devices which will help the people who are crawling in the darkness to reach the sunlit peaks. Their art will be just a device for your inner #growth, for #maturity.
Picasso’s pictures are subjective art. Seeing a painting by Picasso … he has not considered you, who are going to see the painting. You are not taken into account at all. He has simply vomited his own madness on the canvas. It is simply a vomit.

Hello, everyone and welcome back to our weekly #GEMChats! This week, we'll discuss the results of the poll on whether #celebrities make successful #entrepreneurs!

Let's begin, shall we?

#startup #womenentrepreneur #business #showbiz
So recently @KylieJenner sparked a heated debate on how celebrities are successful at entrepreneurship when she was announced to become the youngest self-made #billionaire ever.

#KUWTK
Some feel strongly that she only dethroned #MarkZuckerberg from that position because she is part of the #Kardashian and her #entrepreneurial venture has multi-level of safety net and it allows her to #scaleup at an exponential rate.
