The calm, beautiful, brave dignity of mothers. Everytime we’re told that protests should be crushed, or we hear one of these iron fisted leaders of a country denouncing protests as being manned by terrorists, photos like this should also be shown to add a little clarity. Ukrainian ladies armed with nothing but a mirror, held up in front of riot police with their weapons and protective gear, how beautiful a concept to shine a light on the human behind those masks and helmets, maybe remind them they are human or were once, or maybe are at the end of their shift when they go home to their own families. What a powerful weapon that could be. They are all the sons of mothers after all. I wish all the normal people in Ukraine peace and a future free from power games and violence. Rage against the machine but peace out ultimately.

Tala, Haliya, Magwayen {2013}

So last year, I went to Hong Kong. Because I won an art contest thing. I haven’t been out of the country in a while so it was a welcome change of pace and scenery. I actually had meant to make a long post about it late last year. But after I got back, I was greeted with a series of unfortunate events. And eventually I just never got around to it.

Part of the conditions though for my Hong Kong trip was to create more art for an exhibit there. The point of the exhibit was to tell stories of mystique and being Filipino. So I came up with the above paintings all based on three goddesses in the Philippine mythological pantheon. They’re all a bit rough, but I was in a bit of a rush. I see so many faults in all of them that it’s driving me nuts. But I was happy with them at the time, now I’m not so sure.

It could be better. But whatever.

At least I got to Hong Kong and I think I was able to communicate my stories well enough. Well enough that I sold the canvas prints to a lovely couple. So these paintings are now probably hanging in their apartment in Hong Kong.

Aside from the sweet validation, it was also kind of a relief that I sold out actually. I brought my tablet along for repairs but without really any money to pay for it, but it all worked out.  Plus, I got a bit of extra shopping money. I bought art materials mostly.

But the whole time before the night of the exhibit had ended, I was worried I wasn’t going to sell and that I would have to lug those massive canvases back to the Philippines along with a still-broken Intuos. It would’ve been so devastating.

Anyway, it was a great trip. It was pretty soul-enriching. Met a lot of really cool people and made a few new friends. And I learned a lot through the process of making these though, despite not being entirely happy with them. I always make it a point to experiment and try something new with every serious painting. I think that’s important, but sometimes I end up with glorious failures. But then again, my most unforgiving critic is myself.

A professional script reader read 300 screenplays for five different studios, all the while tracking the many recurring problems. The infographic he made with the collected data offers a glimpse at where screenwriting goes wrong.

pay attention to this

this is important even if you don’t write scripts

Pretty much all these problems are also common problems in fiction writing/reasons for 99% of the slush pile getting rejected. Don’t do them.

Calm Bottle (aka Glitter Jar)

Supplies

  • Container: This is typically made with a glass mason jar, but since I often make these with children I use water bottles with smooth sides.
  • One bottle of clear glue (not white glue that dries clear), or glitter glue: I like using regular glue so I don’t have to deal with the hot water since I make these in my office. Glue/glitter glue works best, but you could also use corn syrup if that’s all you have. You have to pour it directly in the water without letting it touch the sides of the bottle or the glitter will stick to it.
  • Water: It can be room temperature if you use regular glue but should be hot (I use boiling water) if glitter glue is used. If the water is not hot enough then the glitter will become clumpy and separate.
  • Glitter: I use mostly super fine glitter with a little regular sized. I sometimes add sequins, beads, shells, plastic jewels, etc. Glow in the dark glitter looks really cool if you can find it. Less (or even none) is needed with glitter glue bottles
  • Food coloring: This is optional. Only use one drop or it becomes difficult to see the glitter.
  • Strong glue or duct tape: This is used to fasten the lid to the container. I like using colored duct tape.

Directions

  • Making a Calm Bottle (clear glue): Fill the bottle 3/4 of the way full with water. Then add the glue (and shake) and glitter (and shake). I use a funnel for the glitter. The more glue you use, the longer it will take the glitter to fall. I usually use the whole bottle. Add 1 drop of food coloring, if desired, and then glue/tape the lid on.
  • Making a Calm Bottle (glitter glue): Instead of clear glue you can use glitter glue. If you go this rout then mix the glitter glue in a bowl with very hot water (I boil the water) before adding it to the bottle. If the water is not hot enough then the glue will clump up and not work. You can add 1 drop of food color and additional glitter is desired.
  • Using a Calm Bottle: This coping tool can be used for a number of different issues.  If a client becomes emotionally dysregulated at an inappropriate time they shake the bottle vigorously and then set it down and watch the glitter fall while taking deep breaths (how to teach deep breathing can be found here).  
  • Important Note: Many people use these for anxiety and panic attacks and I wanted to emphasize that this is merely a simple coping tool that can be useful in certain situations but should not be used to avoid dealing with underlying issues.  This exercise will do absolutely nothing to get to the root cause or prevent it from happening in the future.  Fear must be confronted, rather than avoided, for lasting change to take place.

SIGNAL BOOST because i fucking love glitter jars and they’ve saved my ass at school.

have anxiety? glitter jar. get stressed easy? glitter jar. like glitter? glitter jar. are you a parent or a teacher or a babysitter? give a kid a glitter jar to look at when they are in time-out to keep them from crying or screaming and shit. give one to the kid while on a roadtrip. keep one in your locker at school. i do. me and my friends have access to it and if a teacher is an asshat or something goes wrong or we’re stressed about work or collages or anything like that, just shake the glitter jar and look at it for a while and it’s the most calming this in the galaxy.
