Paste a link of a Google+ image gallery2. Put a title or description of what we'll see in the album3.  IMPORTANT If you post a link you hereby give us permission to use a screenshare view of all those pictures and perhaps your profile in a recorded Youtube video.4.

Kelli Seeger Kim1,307,131It's +Karen Hutton 's birthday!  (okay, well - technically, it's September 7.  But +Kerry Murphy and I couldn't wait any longer!)Anyone familiar with Karen will attest to the fact that she is all about peoples' passions.  What drives them.  What's in their hearts.  What better gift to give to her, than to share with her images that we feel represent our passion/soul/heart!.  Images that truly represent who we feel we are now - or the journey we are on (or traveled), in search of personal growth.  Maybe you have an image of yours that represents a style of photography that you feel a deep connection with. Maybe you have an image that marked a moment in your life that was particularly incredible for you - that touched you in a way that is significant.  We can have a lot of fun with this theme - the most important thing is that it comes from our heart.  :-)So feel free to upload images to this event, and tag them:   #SharingOurLightWithKarenHutton  Sharing Our Light With Karen Hutton (Happy Birthday, Karen!)2012-09-07 13:00:0058

You have nothing to lose and everything to gain as we go day by day, year by year building this community of wish granters.Now think of an image that represents your wish and then take2seconds to think of that image at least once a day until it comes true.Have fun with it, there's no right or wrong way when you come from the heart.Please let us know as each wish comes true...yes each wish...there's no law that says you're only granted one wish...you deserve everyone of them when they come from the heart..when that wish fills you with the passion for life...*****UPDATE at first I was focused on getting as many people as possible for this so that everyone had more energy but now after reading your comments..hearing your passion for life...the numbers have gone completely out the window for each one of you have brought your own unique energy to the equation that's priceless....THANK YOUIn my world Birthday wishes can be made everyday of the year because it's a celebration everyday that your here to share this with.So today I Celebrate being 44 aUpdate to fix Google Bug for "It's My Birthday and my wish is for your wishes to come true!!"2012-08-17 12:00:00205 
Yifat Cohen69,509HOW ONE MOM’S BLOG BECAME THE BIGGEST NETWORK IN THE UK. +Sally Whittle was a tech journalist contributing stories to ZDNet, Computing, Computer Weekly, Information Age, Mac User and the Guardian. When her daughter turned 2 she started a parenting blog at Who's the Mummy, (ranked the UK's #1 parenting blog by Cision.)

Gailen Mapes67,393Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Canon Camera G-H - 5 of 31Note: These circles are sorted by camera type and last name. They are split to not exceed 200 members. These circles are photographers that I admire. They have "more photos, less spam."  There have been many additions and a few drops (mostly for spam or inactivity). Be sure to get all of the circles. Share! If you miss any of the circles they can be found at: +Gailen Mapes and scroll back to September 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting August 1st.)  You can also use the #handpickedcircles hash tag and sort by "recent."I am hard up against the 5000 limit. From here on, I am going to have to become rather more strict about the "spam rules." Essentially if I have to go back more than a screen on your profile before I hit original material, there is a good chance that I may drop you from the circles. Of course there will be mitigating factors...Because of the way that Google no longer presents every person who adds me to their circles to me it is quite possible that I have missed some pretty good photographers.  If I am following you, chances are that you are already in one of these circles or in my "check later" circle.  If you think you have been missed, tag a comment on one of these posts and I will check your profile out for inclusion.  Guidelines for inclusion can be found at:   https://plus.google.com/u/0/103752943025677384806/about#circleshare #circlesharing #circleoftheday   #sharedcircles   #sharedcircle #sharedpubliccircles   #fullcircleshare #addmetoyourcircles #pixelworld   #pixelworldcircle #circleoftheday #bestsharedcircle   #thebestcirclesongoogle #thebestcircle             #handpickedcircles             Note: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +2014-09-05 10:30:52161205

Land of the Lost

#Gulluminati beware!! The Sea-IA uncovered this shot of the #SeagullSubversionSect rallying troops on a secluded island off the coast. It has been surmised that they are donning #seagullbuttsindisguise costumes and preparing for some great onslaught on all #Gullarazzi. 

As of this report, however, their plan of action has not been determined and we can only issue a general warning, All #SeagullButtShooters should carry on their person's at all times the following:

  • Protective covering (plastic film for your camera and hats and long-sleeved shirts/jackets for your person … or an umbrella)

Kiss Me Goodnight for the Macro Monday theme
 ¸o•*´¨ⒷⓄⓀⒺⒽlicious!°o¸¸.•
–––

I climbed up the door and opened the stairs.
I said my pajamas and put on my prayers.
I turned off the bed and crawled into the light.
and all because you kissed me goodnight.

Next morning, I woke and scrambled my shoes.
I shined up an egg, then I toasted the news,
I buttered my tie and took another bite.
and all because you kissed me goodnight.

By evening I felt normal, so we went out again.
You said, "Goodnight," kissed me ... and then,

I powdered my hair and pinned up my nose.
I hung up the bath and I turned on my clothes.
I put out the clock and wound the cat up tight,
and all because you kissed me goodnight.


Lyrics by Eddie Pola / George Wyle

La Coiffure de la Petit Canard
(une mouette fesses dans le déguisement)

Shhh .. she believes herself to be a seagull.
With fancy "do", of course.

I shot this series back in 2009––even then it was clear my fascination with the buffoonery of seagulls had fledged to obsession––and this little canard-cloaked "seagull" wandered into the studio hoping for her fifteen minutes. I gave her three.

I'm Shy
"When I'm alone, I think of so many things to say to you, but when I have a chance to tell you, I am speechless."
Sometimes the people you think don't want to talk to you, are the ones waiting for you to talk to them.

What can you say about, +Mark Rodriguez? ... well, he's not everyone's cup of tea––there's about 8 of you out there that probably shouldn't follow him ... otherwise, the rest of you should most definitely be following him!! He's crazy good at almost everything (gotta stick that "almost" in there to keep him humble, you know) and this is not the first of his works that has made my jaw drop (give us a rest, will ya, Mark?!! I haven't closed my mouth in, like, three years!!)

Still agape and wishing you a most happy birthday, Mark ... ;o))

heaven cursed his existence

i know a lot of you have seen the BTS shots as i have been working on my latest project and i am happy to say that it is complete now and i am able to share it. this s my entry for the june  +Style It! Shoot It! Share It!  challenge hosted by +lane langmade and +Michael V Kelly. the theme for the challenge was Heroes and Villains and the character i chose was a bit of both

i chose Spawn for he is a complicated character and in a way a hero and a villian. he was a mercenary and killed for profit and did a lot of bad things in his life but at the same time he was a loving father and husband and would do anything to protect and care for them both.

when he was assassinated (shot in the face) by a fellow agent he went to hell and made a deal with the devil (the classic soul trade) but of course the devil pulled a fast one and though he did come back to be with his family, he came back still disfigured from when he was shot in the face and so he is a monster to them and cannot be with them. he now lives a life of solitude in the back alleys of the city

he is a reluctant hero because he hates the world around him yet still finds something inside him to right wrongs in it when they become a part of his life or somehow trigger the kindness within him.

his cape (actually his whole outfit) is a living entity that he is permanently bound to. it is a symbiotic relationship as if one dies so does the other and so the suit will protect him at all costs. the cape especially comes to life to lash out at anyone who attempts to hurt him.

i have some BTS photos in this album and will be putting together a complete video showing much of the process of building the costume and some of the shoot itself.

...enjoy

+Chrysta Rae's Scavenger Hunt reveals are on!! Don't miss out!

We're officially on DAY ONE of REVEALS
from the 2014 SUMMER SENSATIONAL round
of the +Chrysta Rae Photography Scavenger Hunt!!!

What you are about to experience 
over the course of the next 10 days is pretty freaking awesome.
We play a game - 500 photographers and myself - a scavenger hunt.

What  is the scavenger hunt?
Only the most inspiring, creative and fun way to learn your camera, push your limits, experiment, and shoot things in ways you didn't think you could.

I host this event every season for anyone of any level of photography to participate.
I open the game up to 500 Photographers
I give you 10 items to shoot 
I give you a period of time to shoot and enter your photos.
Then I have them judged by amazing photographers
(this round's judges were +Mike F Shaw +Ron Clifford +Robin Griggs Wood +mel peifer, and our winner from last round - +Mark Rodriguez  

I then open the albums up to the public - every morning over the course of 10 days. 
Later today I will be posting the winners from this album.
There are 10 categories: This is the first - the "*YOUR CITY*" album.

This event is an amazing way to use your camera in new ways. 
It gets you seeing things in new ways,
It helps improve your photography skills, 
gives you a huge audience, 
and let's everyone celebrate each other's successes. 
Make new friends,
and be a part of a community of photographers who care about each other, teach each other, and inspire one another.

The sign up for the next round of the scavenger hunt will be announced on day 10 of reveals from this round.

The group of "scavengers" that participate create a community unlike any other on G+. 
Support, encouragement  friendships even some #huntsmack is enjoyed. 
We become a family over the course of the month. 

This is a negative-free zone - I have zero tolerance for any critiques that are uninvited. 
Please be respectful and remember that every person went out there and took the time to shoot these images 
and put thought into them and tried their best. 
As always, I am proud of every single one of you.

(NONE of the images were taken by ME - this is a collection of images taken by multiple photographers participating in the scavenger hunt. All copyrights apply)

With that - I present to you the "*YOUR CITY*" album,
1 item seen in 288 different ways.

At least we got the room with the balcony ... and the train tracks were only just being built. Must be loaded with train-noise "charm" by now ... ;o7

Peter Giordano is the CEO of the Arcanum, going through the system to make it the best possible learning experience for all the Apprentices. This is is not staged, but is Peter's genuine critique towards his own personal artistic goals.

Level 4 critique including landscape composition and general art basics. My primary target for an Apprentice's first critique at Level 4 is a light approach, covering a few basics only and making certain that they have achieved their own goal for the work.

The Epic Battle Begins

You may recall the reports about a month ago where the Sea-IA uncovered a #SeagullSubversionSect rallying troops on a secluded island off the coast: https://plus.google.com/+RobinGriggsWood/posts/M1ErGY7qZWJ.
+Alex Lapidus and +Ellie Kennard have also been recently witness to the most gruesome carnage and demands of a propitiatory #GreatSeagullButtMasters title bestowal from the entire #Gulluminati . 

Well, you can bespeak your own horror to watch events unfold here, as #seagullbuttminions are sent out to envelope a becalmed boatload of mild-mannered #Gullarazzi pursuing their avocation in their typical innocuous fashion.

We can hope that it's only a #splatterattack and not some ghastly Hitchcockian nightmare!

"It gets even better..."
Wonderful story from +Kalebra Kelby! (In case you needed some mood-elevating today.)

I intended to have a 9.11 social media “day of silence” for myself but after I talked to my mom this morning and she told me about what happened yesterday (when she and my dad were standing in line at the grocery store) and...

The woman ahead of them went to pay for her groceries with a debit card but it came back that her account was empty. Now, while that has happened to plenty of us (at some point in our lives), at least, in my case, I knew it was empty. This woman was shocked! 

We don't know why it was empty but there are a number of reasons I could imagine and I'm sure she's dealing with (at least) one of those reasons today. However, I think we all need to hear what happened next.

This woman started sobbing. Broken, hopeless, hurting tears. The kind that said, “This is too much and I'm at the end of my rope. I'm desperate, I need help and I need it now.”

Have you ever heard that sort of crying before? I have, and your heart breaks for the person crying those kinds of tears—and it should.

So my dad looks at my mom and gets the nod (of agreement he's looking for) and, quietly, follows the woman over to the customer service counter and once there asks, “How much were they?”

The woman answers (through her tears) “A lot.” And it turned out to be over $200.

There was another woman standing there with my parents and, together, they all decide that they would split her bill so that she could have her groceries.

That's a beautiful part to this (otherwise) sad story but guess what? It gets even better because the store manager looked at all of them and said, “No, it's okay, we're going to absorb this.” And had someone take the groceries to her car.

Now, I don't know if the store has a policy for that sort of thing or if this manager made the call on his own or even if he paid for it out of his own pocket but I will tell you this—I will be driving to that store to buy my groceries from now on. ;)

Way more important than that...

Is that someone (when they needed it most) was lifted up by others. I wouldn't be so bold as to tell you how to feel, think or react to hearing this story—I only offer it—on a day that was going to be a silent one for me.

One last thing...I wish that we all know peace, love, kindness, forgiveness, compassion and (should we ever find we need it) to be lifted up by others.

Thanks for listening. :)

Crown City Morn

Empty streets were a priority, so we had an early film shoot for my boyfriend's latest movie project. I got to be the driver ... O_o. What's a gal to do while she has to wait by the illegally parked car in the alley ... but shoot the sunrise coming over the buildings? ... ;o7

+Karen Hutton's byword is "Life is Light", and she conveys that so well, in not only her photography, but in the essence of her very existence. Today is her birthday, yes, but she deserves to be celebrated every day for all the light that she brings to everyone who is graced to be around her. Wishing you a most happy birthday today, Karen!! If you get back one percent of what you give to others, you can certainly call today a "Wrap!" as fitting punctuation to the luminescence you bestow upon all of us.

A huge, my-arms-just-ain't-long-enough-for-all-the-wrappin'-I-wanna-do-with-'em HUG for you! We're so lucky to have you in this world!

Artist's in the print version of +Plus One Collection III ... so many artists that I admire!! Thank you so much for all you do, +Ivan Makarov!

Announcing the list of artists who's work will be included in Plus One Collection print book

And now what many of you have been waiting for - announcing the list of artists who's work will be included in the print book #PlusOneCollectionIII  

Link -> http://www.photographersforgood.com/Plus-One-Collection/Plus-One-Collection-III-List-o (Tip: use CTRL+F to see if your name is there to save time)

It's always a hard task to pick the photos because there are so many amazing ones that we just can't include because we have limited space in the book. Any judge can testify to you of that. We had seven capable judges this time around who went through every submission and we picked the best 285 or so for the book based on the final rankings. 

But what we decided to do to compensate for this is to release a poster that will have everyone's submission posted. You can order that poster on Indiegogo page as well - https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/plus-one-collection-iii/x/2020311

As with the book, all net proceeds from the sale of the poster will go to Saving Eliza fund. 

What's next? Keep spreading the word about the fundraising campaign! We still need to raise $25,000 before the book can go to press. And if you can contribute, please do. ___Artist's in the print version of +Plus One Collection III ... so many artists that I admire!! Thank you so much for all you do, +Ivan Makarov!

Curious about how +The Arcanum works? +Peter Giordano is walkin' the walk!

"An amazing outcome is that although I'm in the same "Cohort" as my fellow Apprentices, with the same Leveling Guides, my experience within each Level of The Arcanum is completely different from any other Apprentice. I choose my goal and completing each Level gets me closer to my goal – Not someone else's idea of what I need to learn."

We've had some fairly high waves for our neck of the woods this past week––some as high 20 feet, with multiple reports of rescues from people who just didn't have a clue. Yesterday, they were only about 10 feet high, but still gorgeous to witness.

Announcing Plus One Collection Volume III Fundraising Campaign

It's been a long journey, but we are fully focused on this now, and want to get the latest version of the #PlusOneCollectionIII book into your hands before Christmas. To help us get there, we created an Indiegogo crowdsourcing campaign that will provide us with the funds needed to publish the book. 

All the details are here - http://igg.me/at/plus-one-collection-iii/x/2020311

We also created a video explaining our project. You can find it here - Plus One Collection, Volume III 

We hope you can help up in two ways - first, contribute the funds for the book by picking one of the perks offered there. Second, please help us spread the word! Share the news here, share the news to your friends and family on other social networks and email. Share, share, share!

We set a goal to raise $30,000 in the next 30 days. We know it's a lofty one, but it will allow us to do two things - publish and ship the book to all campaign sponsors, and raise $5,000-10,000 for our charitable cause, Eliza O'Neill. 

The campaign is a fixed goal campaign, meaning, we do need to meet the goal of $30,000 before we receive any funds and can print the book. 

I know many of you who contributed photographs to the book want to know if your photo made it. We're still working on the selection, and will announce the list of contributing artists next week. Stay tuned! 

But in the meantime, we're happy to announce that the book publication process is back on track and with your help, let's make it happen and help Eliza!___All for a good cause ... :o)

Awesome ... +Peter Giordano gives y'all a peek into the Arcanum process with this recording of his peer feedback time ... check it out ––> http://youtu.be/NGccAH7v2Js

The Arcanum - Level 3

And the journey continues along my learning path. 
Level 3 is the first real opportunity to engage the community as part of the Leveling process. Don’t get me wrong, there has been a ton of engagement, discussion, feedback and relationship building up to this point.


Goal for Level 3
The challenge for Level 3 is seek assistance from your Apprentices within your Cohort, for help narrowing down from 10 to 5 images that will then be critiqued in Level 4. In addition, you must provide constructive feedback to your Fellow Apprentices. The experience is a ton of fun! I raced through the Albums posted for Peer Review, so excited to see so many wonderful works. It was a challenge to slow down and provide thoughtful, constructive, authentic feedback. Not just “Nice photo”. 

The secondary purpose of this Level is to learn how to properly post albums, ask and give help through a peer review, learn to set up a G+ Hangout as part of the peer review. So yes - there is a fair amount of ”Learning The Arcanum” as well as Leveling up my skills.


Possible Down-side of Self-Paced Learning?
I got a late start into my Cohort and most or all of the Apprentices have already moved past Level 3. So I didn’t feel my comments and peer review were very helpful in terms helping them narrow down for their critique session. However, I do hope that my feedback was still worth something, another perspective perhaps? 

Insight: For this reason It’s critical to “Keep Up” with the group for these initial Levels. Otherwise you’re not taking advantage of the early phase of building essential relationships that create a network of support you need to move forward in The Arcanum.


Best Practice
+Robin Griggs Wood  is a world-class Mentor. One simple data point is that she requires us to spell out our specific goal for each image in any portfolio that which we ask for feedback and critique. She models brilliant behavior by always seeking to understand the goal of each work prior to offering any counsel. This exercise was incredible. Having to write the goal forced me to think about what images I wanted to include. Indeed, I wound up with a different set for the Peer Review because I was actually able to articulate the purpose behind the work.


Energy and Inspiration
Holy COW!!! We completed the Peer Review and I was totally psyched to go back and re-process some of my photos. I had a vision of how to improve them. Goosebumps took over my body. Will be working on the images this weekend!


Here's the recording of our Peer Review Hangout with +Christina Lihani and +Jacob Surland 
http://youtu.be/NGccAH7v2Js

Link to my Level 3 Album is also attached..Definitely check out the comments for Goals and feedback from my Fellow Apprentices

Can’t wait for my Level 4 Critique!!

Getting Back into Post 

#pluspost for +The Arcanum and +Robin Griggs Wood 

I had a great week of working out some out-of-shape-Photoshop-muscles. 

Lately I've been spending all of my time on The Arcanum and not enough time in The Arcanum ;-) Less time shooting, less editing, less posting. 

Then I took a photo Friday that needed more help than Lightroom could offer. I broke into PS again. 

Getting the photo to look like I wanted was like piecing together a puzzle, searching for the right pieces and order in which to place them.
The experience reminded of the power and essence of setting goals: They put you on the Journey. And THAT is where the learning happens. 

Well...my photo didn't turn out that great. But Damn!

"The Lady in Red"

My apologies for using this image, which has nothing to do with what I'm writing, to pull your eye here and hopefully to get you to read the following message…

People do not have to die from cancer.

I spent yesterday evening with my girlfriend who was diagnosed with Stage IV (metastasized, or spread to other organs or throughout the body) lung cancer with an 8cm tumor about a year ago. Because she had been with several friends over the years during their last agonizing moments––agony and dying not from cancer, but chemotherapy and radiation poisoning––she decided not to go that route. Friday, she got the results back from her most recent PET scan ––> absolutely no cancer was present.

"The Lady in Red"

My apologies for using this image, which has nothing to do with what I'm writing, to pull your eye here and hopefully to get you to read the following message…

People do not have to die from cancer.

I spent yesterday evening with my girlfriend who was diagnosed with Stage IV (metastasized, or spread to other organs or throughout the body) lung cancer with an 8cm tumor about a year ago. Because she had been with several friends over the years during their last agonizing moments––agony and dying not from cancer, but chemotherapy and radiation poisoning––she decided not to go that route. Friday, she got the results back from her most recent PET scan ––> absolutely no cancer was present.

Stage IV cancer to zero cancer.

I'm not going to go into her details here, to avoid the volley of comments from the fear-mongers, except to say that she did not treat her cancer with chemo or radiation. Instead she did quite a few things to assist her own body's immune system to fight the cancer itself. And WON. It is possible.

After having watched, myself, two other dear friends die horrible deaths after going the chemo/radiation route in the past year and a half––one who had only been diagnosed with Stage I at his early diagnosis––I feel compelled to pass this idea along. People do not have to die from cancer.

Her main message: after you get up off the floor from the horrible shock of finding out you have cancer …  stop, breathe, there is a route to beat this, and to feel better and better during the whole process––not worse and worse. While you don’t have to avoid standard medical doctors (she did not) you don't have to slavishly believe every word they say, either.

Never rule out the fact that fear can be used on many people diagnosed with cancer because cancer is BIG BUSINESS.

"Unless your doctor is constantly studying microbiology, neurology, 
endocrinology, nutrition, immunology, alternative medicine and lots more disciplines, he/she is not fully qualified to advise you on beating your cancer. No human being can read and evaluate all the information currently available."
(via http://www.thedoctorwithin.com/cancer/to-the-cancer-patient/)

If you have cancer or know of someone who does:

"The word 'cancer' in your diagnosis always creates fear. You must accept this and vow to fight it. A cancer diagnosis is not a death notice.
An Instant Survivor Hot Line 
Here’s a Cancer Hot Line for you to call right now. It is 1(800)433-0464.
Richard Bloch, a cancer survivor and co-founder of the tax-preparation firm, H & R BLOCK, INC, founded this Hot Line. In 1978, Bloch was diagnosed with terminal lung cancer and given three months to live. He is still alive and well 23 years later.
The above Hot Line connects you to a volunteer group of cancer patients who take phone calls from newly diagnosed cancer patients. Call them now. Many cancer patients find support groups especially helpful. It certainly doesn’t hurt to meet people who were given death sentences 10 years ago––and are still alive."
(via Bill Henderson, author of "Cancer Free: Your Guide to Gentle, Non-Toxic Healing", who generously makes it available online for free in PDF form: http://www.beating-cancer-gently.com/support-files/cf3.pdf … and was the book that my girlfriend said helped her a great deal. It lists a vast number of methods and is not trying to sell any singular form of treatment, only pass along the idea there are other options.)

To your continued health …with love, from me.___

"Message In A Bottle" fantasy composite by Robin Griggs Wood

Not the exact idea of this particular image, but I thought it would be fun to challenge you with the same challenge I gave my Arcanum apprentices ... to add something in the comments based on the following scenario:

You're walking along a beach. There, in near distance, sits the ubiquitous washed-ashore bottle. You're not close enough to it yet to see it clearly, but as you walk closer, your mind meanders over to the classical story of someone on a long distant island or sinking ship tossing it into the water with a message inside; a last, desperate plea for help or a note of enduring love to a faithful companion.

How will you react: with action or indifference?

Don't read anyone else's until you've added your comment … ;o7

The Butt, The Whole Butt, and Nothing Butt the Butt

I finally found a seagull that was all butt.

Now, I'm beginning to wonder if this is a stuffed prop created by the same #seagullsubversionsect that pulled the cardboard-cutout caboose-caper on me last week … hmmm.

The Butt, The Whole Butt, and Nothing Butt the Butt

Well … you know this had to happen eventually … O_o

Love posting to themes? You might enjoy these great themes with excellent curators! Themes and hashtags are not necessarily about getting more attention, but are a valuable indexing method, which help others find relevant posts via clickable links as well as a great way to meet like-minded people. I tend to only promote those themes with active, caring curators.

What's the difference between a Teacher, a Coach and a Mentor? Find out here and also what +Ron Clifford and I are bringing to our roles as Masters in +The Arcanum.

Mentors Help you Unlock your Awesomeness

I had the privilege and honor to chat with +Ron Clifford and +Robin Griggs Wood about their years of experience Mentoring people along their artistic and creative paths.

Robin and Ron are applying their vast talents and mentoring experience as Masters within +The Arcanum  - a magical learning experience for passionate people motivated to Level Up their skills in photography and other visual arts.

I was humbled, honored and inspired during the chat... I learned so much, the least of which was the stark difference between teaching, coaching and mentoring.

One of the most important responsibilities of a Mentor is to create a safe and trusting environment where it is ok for you to be vulnerable, to share your creations and be open to feedback. In this way, we Level Up!

Thanks for watching and please let me know what you think!

That Terrible Disease Called Loneliness

Orson: The report, Mork.
Mork: This week I discovered a terrible disease called loneliness.

Orson: Do many people on Earth suffer from this disease?

Mork: Oh yes sir, and how they suffer. One man I know suffers so much he has to take a medication called bourbon. Even that doesn’t help very much because then he can hear paint dry.

Orson: Does bedrest help?

Mork: No because I’ve heard that sleeping alone is part of the problem. You see, Orson, loneliness is a disease of the spirit. People who have it think that no one cares about them.

Orson: Do you have any idea why?

Mork: Yes sir, you can count on me. You see, when children are young, they’re told not to talk to strangers. When they go to school, they’re told not to talk tothe per... more »

Orson: Do you have any idea why?

Mork: Yes sir, you can count on me. You see, when children are young, they’re told not to talk to strangers. When they go to school, they’re told not to talk to the person next to them. Finally when they’re very old, they’re told not to talk to themselves, who’s left?

Orson: Are you saying Earthlings make each other lonely?

Mork: No sir, I’m saying just the opposite. They make themselves lonely – they’re so busy looking out for number one that there’s not enough room for two.

Orson: It’s too bad everybody down there can’t get together and find a cure.

Mork: Here’s the paradox, sir, because if they did get together, they wouldn’t need one.

Mork & Mindy: ‘In Mork We Trust’ (1979)

Rest in peace, dear Robin; you were always that little moment of joy that took me by surprise – I will miss you so.

Check out this new video about +The Arcanum ... have you applied yet? If you applied ages ago and are still waiting, it may be time to update your application –– let a seeking Master know just how passionate you are about your artistry and your learning!

A new trailer now up on www.TheArcanum.com ! I know thousands and thousands of you have applied and are still waiting in the Neverending Orphanage of Lost and Forgotten Souls. You drift about like wayward wraiths, waiting for a Master to choose you, plucking you out of your perennial purgatory.

But we are going slow on purpose and hand-choosing Masters and training them up on the culture and the leveling system. We currently have between 20 and 30 Masters, each of which are averaging about 17 Apprentices each. We could amp it up at any time and add more Masters, but we’re trying to do this right. No one has ever built a system like this, so the whole team is keeping this as organic and special as possible. We’ll hit scale soon enough, so we really appreciate your patience! :)
