03.08.2008: International Women Day|Female Portraits|

International Women Day (March 8)

is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity.

International Women’s Day (IWD) has been observed since in the early 1900’s – a time of great expansion and turbulence in the industrialized world that saw booming population growth and the rise of radical ideologies.

 

We realize the importance of our voices only when we are silenced.

International Women’s Day (IWD), originally called International Working Women’s Day, is celebrated on March 8 every year.  In different regions the focus of the celebrations ranges from general celebration of respect, appreciation and love towards women for their economic, political and social achievements. An effective Women’s Day was the 1975 Icelandic women’s strike which paved the way for the first female president in the world.

In some regions, the day lost its political flavor and became simply an occasion for people to express their love for women in a way somewhat similar to a mixture of Mother’s Day and Valentine’s Day. In other regions however, the political and human rights theme designated by the United Nations runs strong political and social awareness of the struggles of women worldwide are brought out and examined in a hopeful manner. Some people celebrate the day by wearing purple ribbons.

“NATURE DOESN’T NEED PEOPLE, PEOPLE NEED NATURE.”

We depend entirely on a healthy natural environment for our wealth and wellbeing. It is fundamental to our economy and social structures, our homes and neighbourhoods, our ability to create and construct things, and to our health and happiness. Human beings are part of the natural world; we are one species amongst millions and have evolved to be part of nature, not apart from it.

While millions of people regularly watch TV programs about nature and wildlife, the membership of nature conservation organizations is growing but really needs more support to help wildlife for the future. Legislation intended to protect nature is becoming more abundant and a growing area of land (and more recently, sea) is being designated as having special protection. However wildlife and wild places have been declining in quantity and quality for decades and continue to do so. The high value that people often attach to nature on a personal, individual level, is rarely translated into public policy or the investment and spending decisions of government, organizations and private companies.

Nature matters simply because it does, but also because it brings people huge emotional value, it delivers a wide range of valuable goods and services that are of practical benefit to society, and much of the emotional and practical value that it generates has financial value which contributes to the economic performance of the industrialised countries. It is central to addressing many of the industralised most pressing social and economic problems (such as declining mental health, increasing non-communicable diseases, declining social cohesion, increasing inequality, increasing flood risk, increasing urbanisation) and to maintaining the productivity and quality of life of a growing and aging population).

An impression about what i DO …

I've told you once that I find quite amazing the way your eye capture space and time through a camera. In your work/vision I see a strong intuition, awareness of your surroundings, an awaking of sensibility that has being developing year after year; and a domain of the technique. Your sight is the one of a life apprentice. Remember that art is one of the most noble human activities, if your heart is true, it may open our soul to new ways of learning about ourselves and to undesrtand the human condition. Life it self is a whole mistery, human beings had being trying to give it meaning through art since imemorial times. Rimbaud once said: ''Le Poète se fait voyant par un long, immense et raisonné dérèglement de tous les sens.'' Inquiring in the matter of tuning our sences to further horizons, Rimbaud had it clear, art made him a ''Übermensch'' in therms of Nietzche's ''will of power''. In other words, we create our reallity and we artists, we reflect it with art. We may give it cause, to incite human mind and soul evolution. We need more artists in the world. I'm glad you're one of them.

03.22.2013: World Water Day – Element of life|Pray to Water|

UNITED NATIONS – WATER Art Page

Emoto Masaru:

Believed that water was a “blueprint for our reality” and that emotional “energies” and “vibrations” could change the physical structure of water.

Emoto made the claim that water exposed to positive speech and thoughts would result in visually “pleasing” crystals being formed when that water was frozen, and that negative intention would yield “ugly” frozen crystal formations.

Emoto claimed that different water sources would produce different crystalline structures when frozen. For example, he claimed that a water sample from a mountain stream when frozen would show structures of beautifully-shaped geometric design, but those structures would be distorted and randomly formed if the sample were taken from a polluted water source. Emoto believed that these changes could be eliminated by exposing water to ultraviolet light or certain electromagnetic waves.

“Traditions are imploding and exploding everywhere – everything is coming together, for better or worse, and we can no longer pretend we’re all living in different worlds because we’re on different continents.” – Philip Glass
We live in a world where our common agenda is PEACE.
The multicultural traditions, races, philosophies converged as one when we realize that as humanity we breath the same air, drink the same water, eat from the same soil.
The opportunity to grow as an earthling with no prejudice, discrimination nor judgment towards others, makes me have the ability to contemplate the true essence of our human complexity. -emotions and consciousness-
