Skin. A persons skin is one of their first defenses of the outside world. It’s a tough, breathable, and elastic organ that regulates body temperature, and regenerates itself. It’s the largest organ in the human body.
-
It’s one of the main characteristics which sets us apart from and binds us to others both literally and metaphorically. It can encompass an entire universe of meaning. It is a symbolic reminder of historical misrepresentation, exploitation, and racial politics.
-
I am confident in saying at this point in my life, I’m the most comfortable ‘in my own skin’ as I’ve ever been, both literally and metaphorically. I do not seek or need validation from anyone for my physicality, or how I present myself in this world. It’s all up to me, and subject to change at any given moment. For that freedom, I am eternally grateful.
-
I’ve come to accept—I fake it every day of my life. Not because I’m insecure or unsure. But because I’m a life long student who is at times woefully ignorant, still growing, and always learning. Not to mention I’ve just got an awful lot of shit I don’t understand to get done each day. And from my experience faking it, has become a bit of a personal cheerleading anthem and a legitimate path to making it.
-
A bit of faking what you know, what you can do— there’s absolutely nothing wrong with that—so long as you’re not faking who you are.
-
I’ve come to know and love the good, the bad, the beautiful, and the ugly in myself. Because they all depend on one another regardless of how it seems.
-
I’ve come to accept myself intellectually, physically and emotionally as I am. Not as a means to be lazy or as an excuse for my own ignorance, flaws, or bad behavior. But because I’ve come to know I am worthy of love regardless of any of those things. We all are.
-
Today I celebrate my birthday. 51 trips around the sun this life has given me. A most generous gift which has been extended longer than I had ever imagined.

Eleven months ago I stopped coloring my hair. I took my first selfie and failed miserably. I felt ugly, silly and but darn determined too. I searched for longer arms, better windows, fewer wrinkles and discovered the car has the best light. I spilled out my fears and revealed my insecurities. There were times I was holding on by a thread, I received so much support from this fabulous community and I know I would not be here if it weren’t for all of you. Admittedly I do not have patience so eleven months is a big deal to me.

If you’re early on your journey, you may have days like I did. Remember don’t doing anything on impulse. Give yourself a time and you will see how things that once troubled you, pass like wind... THANK YOU🖤

⁉️¿Por qué aparecen las canas?
La aparición de las canas es un proceso absolutamente normal, suelen aparecer a partir de los 20 años debido a factores genéticos (principalmente) o de estrés.

Makeup is a good way to improve your mood. I have been feeling sad, thinking so much about my mom that passed away, it will be 2 years in December, then why all this longing and feeling blue? Does grief ever end? Or does it transform you? I asked one of my closest friends and she said, "you are going with me today to my grief therapy group", she lost one of her sons last year, I do think grief changes you, it has changed me, to the better, I try to not let myself become careless with my appearance, I smile and listen to music and go walking in the mornings, and be happy. But there are days when it is a bit hard. I read somewhere that grief is all the love you cannot give to the person you are grieving for. I was very close to my mother, and I have all this love for her.

Kodak Moment!
Before digital, if anyone remembers, we had to selectively choose what we took picture of BEFORE we took them.
I guess our subject(s) had to be special, right?!
..and, sometimes you only got 16 pictures, and you had to wait to get them back from the drugstore, once they've been developed.
Even then, you had no clue if they were good shots or not.
We've come a long way!

Por muchos años las mujeres han vivido atormentadas por tapar sus canas, en la actualidad eso ha ido cambiando y muchas han decidido lucir su hermoso cabello gris con orgullo 👵💪
.
Si eres una de esas mujeres, te contamos que debes cuidar tu cabello como si tuviera coloración. Debes usar productos suaves y mascarillas hidratantes para recuperar el agua que pierde la fibra cuando se abren las capas

Silver girl in Coolibar! I was asked about this top so I thought I would post a few pictures. I really like this top and will wear this a great deal. It’s a athletic crew top with a back zipper, bonded eyelet for headphone cord, mesh underarm panel for breathability and thumbholes.

Construir com lajotas e blocos cerâmicos garante: - Melhor isolamento térmico (e você gasta menos com ventilador e ar-condicionado). - Melhor isolamento acústico (mais privacidade na sua casa e você também não incomoda o vizinho). - Melhor isolamento de umidade (que evita um monte de dor de cabeça na manutenção da casa e é ótimo pra quem tem criança ou adulto alérgico em casa)! Aqui na região, a referência em qualidade de produtos cerâmicos é a Cerâmica Shimazu. Na hora de comprar, exija a qualidade garantida da Cerâmica Shimazu!!! É mais segurança na sua moradia por toda a vida... #CerâmicaShimazu #lajotascerâmicos #blocoscerâmicos #sustentabilidade #futurodoplaneta #economia #isolamentotermico #isolamentoacustico #isolamentodeumidade #Lorena #Canas #ValedoParaíba #SP

Más #maquillaje 🤪🖤🧟‍♂️🧛🏻‍♂️🎃👻.
Hace unos días os enseñé un maquillaje halloweenero y muchos pensabais o me preguntasteis si era un filtro... ¡Gracias 😋, porque parece que os ha gustado mucho! A falta de un estudio de fotografía y una buena iluminación, tiene sus retoques de luz, contraste... Los degradados los he hecho con esponja, he usado maquillaje en crema, en sombra, sangre artificial... En fin, eso, mucha paciencia y muchas ganas de experimentar. ¡Me podéis preguntar lo que os intrigue! 🥰. Pasad, que hay dos fotos 😊😊

Muchas gracias a todos por interesaros y participar en mis publicaciones y aquí os dejo otro experimento. Ya os he dado dos ideas para Halloween. No os quejaréis... 🖤

I’M BLOCKING FOLLOWERS + HERE’S WHY : If you’re reading this you have not been blocked—yet. Please read on, especially if you have a business or creator account or don’t want to get blocked.

I’ve been wildly fortunate to have organically grown my IG profile from 400 followers of friends and colleges to over 9.5k as of yesterday in just under 2 months. This from purely sharing images + content people seem to genuinely like + engage with. From a marketing perspective, that’s pretty remarkable. I thank everyone of you for attending my IG party!🎉

Ah but alas, my big party has unwanted crashers, by way of bots/fake followers. Some may even be reading now. 🤮Sadly no public account is immune to them + they are getting out of hand for everyone. You’re probably saying, “I don’t have fake followers.” Ah, if you’re growing a public account, you do. I guarantee it.

If you have a business, creator, or public personal profile + you’re making an effort to build your following it matters to IG, therefore it needs to matter to you. IG only shows your content to about 10% of your followers + if they include a bunch of smarmy bots who don’t engage, IG is going to punish you by not serving up your content to the people who actually want to see your content. Sucks, I know.

I blocked over 500 bot/fake accounts (likely some legit accounts too, see why below). Seeing my numbers fall hurt a bit, but who the hell wants unsavory guests who have nothing to say at a party. Not me.

WHO GOT THE BOOT? This first round of purging consisted of reviewing every single profile following me with no profile picture. Understanding I have an older audience who may not be that savvy to IG I did my best to evaluate. Read on to make sure you don’t get blocked.

BOT SIGNS: No profile pic or super stupid one, no bio, odd numbers such as 0 posts, following WAY more than are following them, following thousands,  handles with a bunch of numbers, private account, if not, few to no pics or super weird pics such as every picture is of different feet in flip flops (true story). If you’re real make sure your account doesn’t look like this. Otherwise there’s no legitimate way to know if you’re real.

Survival is a fact of life for all living creatures. What does it mean to survive? Will we know it when we do?

Each fall the American eel and monarch butterfly travel more than three thousand miles from where they were born only to return home to die. They each will survive the long journey just long enough to lay their eggs.

The monarchs born in Sept-October are starting their journey home in Central Mexico to hibernate, only to awaken thin and frayed in the spring, they will lay their eggs and die at last.

Eels born in the Sargasso drifted for three years eventually reaching American rivers where they lived upwards of 40 years. During migration home, eels cease to feed, and their body starts to disintegrate by the time it reaches the continental shelve. Upon reaching the Sargasso they will spawn and die.

...
The butterflies declare themselves in Anarchy

No more flights across the ocean,
Now they want to swim

The Beauty of their wings is not enough to be happy

They want to talk like humans,
They want to run like deer
They want to feel the world like other living things do

Loving their ideals is the only love they feel

They want desperately to love like the human kind

Anarchy of the Butterflies
Anarchy against God

The Butterfly’s Anarch
Juan Nieto
Lives in Puerto Ordaz, Bolivar, Venezuela
Born in the sign of Aries, 1984

The lovely @pixiepigment sent me this collage he has put together to document the first two years of my transition to natural hair. Top right and middle, the day I had high and lowlights to blend my dyed hair with my new growth. Bottom right, exactly two years later. The other images belong to different moments of that in-between period
.
I still have some dye left, very little at the ends, and I am now thinking whether to have it cut for my 50th birthday next month or to hang to it for a few months. But I will talk about that in another post ☺️

I’m a manufacturer of creativity. I am a trained professional artist, designer, and photographer. I am also an educator and tremendous advocate for the creative economy and those who work in this space. Currently, I am creating work using myself as a muse through photography and storytelling.

I have spent an enormous amount of time in my professional career educating fellow creatives and businesses on best practices in the business of creativity. Some of the things I’ve always advocated for from businesses is to not ask for speculative work which does not compensate the artist (eg. logo contests, design concepts in proposals, sharing creative content such as images to promote their brand or business without compensation etc.). Additionally, I’ve worked tirelessly to coach creatives to not participate in these requests. As creatives we need to be compensated fairly for our creative output, particularly if someone else has something to benefit from it!

Recently, an artist tagged me in a couple photos of mine where they had taken my photo ran it through some heavy photoshop filters to make it look like their original ‘art’. They were then trying to sell it. Sooo many problems here. One, they didn’t ask. Two, taking my image and running it through a filter to make it look like a drawing doesn’t make it an original work of theirs in any way. The composition and image are all mine.Three, that they would think a fellow artist would be ok with their original work being so heavily manipulated is mind boggling. I assumed they never went to art school or at least skipped that day, because this is all art school 101.

I reached out and politely educated them on the why of what they were doing was wrong, and asked they remove the images and do nothing further with them or others in the future. They politely obliged and understood.

It is strange this space of sharing does in many ways create opportunities for people to ignorantly and intentionally do harm to creators. If you’re a business or fellow creator of any kind, keep these things in mind to protect your creative works, as well as the integrity of the creative industry as a whole.

Some keep the Sabbath going to Church –
I keep it, staying at Home –
With a Bobolink for a Chorister –
And an Orchard, for a Dome –

Some keep the Sabbath in Surplice –
I, just wear my Wings –
And instead of tolling the Bell, for Church,
Our little Sexton – sings.

God preaches, a noted Clergyman –
And the sermon is never long,
So instead of getting to Heaven, at last –
I’m going, all along.

...

I am simultaneously a creative director, art director, photographer, filmmaker, storyteller, artist, designer, a business owner, a lover, a friend, an educator, an animal and outdoor enthusiast, a woman going through menopause, a world traveler, philanthropist, and at times an activist. I have a few personalities, and several personas. It’s a lot I know. I’m a complicated woman, same as every other woman.

I know for some or maybe, even many people, they want me to be only one of those things, or none of those things. We all get comfortable seeing people through a single lens or identity, or shared interest or commonality.

I think it’s human nature to desire things and people which are familiar. I’m not talking about not wanting to meet new people. I’m referring to our discomfort or confusion of seeing, or getting to know the multiple sides of people. You know like seeing your professor at a bar for the first time. We’re more comfortable knowing or experiencing them only one way, and they in return only get to see what we want them to see.

Or perhaps they’ve just never had the opportunity to know our other sides because we compartmentalize so much of our lives. And to some degree this makes entire sense. When I was a professor I didn’t go to bars with students. Although I always did the day they graduated.😉🍻

Overall I think knowing the various sides of people, what they’re navigating, and their interests is a much more desirable and fun way to experience this world.

╠ second head shot reveal ╣ ...
If you’re one of the original few hundred followers I have who know me in real life or have followed me for my creative and professional work you’re probably wondering what’s up with my feed at this point. Why such a focus on my gray hair and aging? Aren’t there more important or interesting things in this life and world to talk about? Yes, there are more important things, which is why I want to talk about my gray hair, so I can get on with, and encourage others to get on to those more important things.

In Jan of 2018 after a month’s long trip in Asia returning with almost an inch of bright white regrowth and a hot brassy mess on everything else I decided…enough. I spent an embarrassing amount of time on that trip feeling distracted and insecure about the state of my hair while in one of the most magical places in the world. If you think that’s silly, let me give you a wig that looks like what I described above and you tell me how good you feel in it. LOL.

The point is I hadn’t realized until recently how much physical time and emotional energy I was giving to holding on to a false sense of youthfulness, and how much of that was impacting my ability to really focus on and feel good about the things which are most important to me. If you’re someone who’s covering gray hair on the regular, you know exactly what I’m talking about. It’s a kind of deep exhaustion hiding in plain sight.

Anyhow, I hope if you follow me personally or professionally that you’re inspired by the journey. And likewise, if you’re following me for the silver you’re inspired by my creative and professional work because it’s all interconnected.

Covetables. We all have them. You know those things in the world that call to you to collect them. Indulgences to some, necessities to others. I have for years bought myself a special birthday gift which has almost always been a handcrafted piece of heirloom jewelry, clothing, textile, or pottery. Things which simultaneously are rich with history, fine craftsmanship, and timelessness.

The exquisite cuff I’m wearing in this pic entered my collection in honor of my 51 birthday next month. My one-of-a-kind Etkie cuff was beaded by hand with reclaimed sterling silver using skills passed down by generations of American Indian artists. It is from the Black Tourmaline collection which celebrates the beauty of our planet in rest. Like the stone itself, this restorative collection represents the power we gain from going deep within ourselves as we prepare to reawaken in the light. They are meant to serve as a reminder of the quiet strength within you. The craftsmanship will make you want to cry it’s so beautiful.

@etkie_official collaborates with skilled indigenous artisans from underemployed communities on the Navajo Nation in New Mexico, my home state. Every cuff is a wearable piece of art, designed to empower the women who make and wear them. I’m so in love.

Like the stone itself, this restorative collection represents the power we gain from going deep within ourselves as we prepare to reawaken in the light. They are meant to serve as a reminder of the quiet strength within you. The craftsmanship will make you want to cry it’s so beautiful.

@etkie_official collaborates with skilled indigenous artisans from underemployed communities on the Navajo Nation in New Mexico, my home state. Every cuff is a wearable piece of art, designed to empower the women who make and wear them. I’m so in love.
