Alan Shapiro2,918,657I'm continually flabbergasted (I love saying flabbergasted. Say it with me. Flabbergasted. Now say it ten times while pretending you just got your tongue pierced. Cool.) at the sheer number of certain products available for photographers. Choosing a camera bags has got to be one of the more time consuming and frustrating experiences. And a bag is one of the products that is really important right? We're carrying expensive gear around and want to protect it. But then it has to be comfortable. And easy to use. After spending far too much time searching online and walking the aisles of B&H, Adorama. PhotoPlus Expo most recently in search of the perfect camera bag, I decided to ask a friend, +Peter Waisnor from +Tenba to spend a half hour with me to talk about choosing a bag and what to look for in a bag (while promising me to stay as neutral as possible despite making the best bags in the world.)Join us tonight from 8:30pm - 9:00pm EST (5:30pm - 6:00pm PST) for our Hangout On Air (which will be recorded so if you can't make it, no worries. You can watch it online later)Picking a camera bag...what to look for and how to decide what's right for you2013-10-28 01:30:0081

David Bowden37,155Its been awhile....For over three years I collected and shared an exclusive B&W circle. This circle "was" one of the most shared on G+ for awhile. I would share it once a month with everyone as a part of my personal desire to share more quality B&W images and photographers. The requirement for being in this circle was that the photographer shot at least 60% B&W images (I tend to shoot 80%).There are some excellent photographers and friends here. I encourage you to take a look at their work. While I know that bulk circle sharing is a thing of the past or no longer the norm on G+ (which is a shame) I wanted to re-share a collection of truly inspirational people.You wont be disappointed. Re-share if you like their work</david>2014-05-06 23:16:1649012223

Bruised, Not Broken – A Survival Story
Good afternoon.  My name is Paulissa Kipp. I am the face of child sexual abuse, domestic violence and rape.  My address of 1 Paulissa Kipp Place is shared with PTSD, anxiety and bipolar disorder.  Yet my past has not defined me, destroyed me, deterred me, or defeated me.

Hello friends,

No I haven't dropped off the face of the earth.  Still busy dealing with mom's estate, school has begun (just started the Human Svc program) and am fighting a back injury and respiratory crud.

I guess you might say that I have been in dire need of self-care andam now being forced to take it.  All is well and I am participating in advocacy and art shows as my schedule allows.  Lots of change is in the wind and it is all good, I believe.

How are all of you???

I am honored to be a part of Teresa Conway's Survivor Stories project for her forthcoming book. Here is my story.

TRIGGER WARNING


"Don’t let your truth get caught in your throat. Don’t let it become the unheard scream. The power of the pain lessens each time we tell our story. You’re going to be uncomfortable, but at that same time, if you tell your truth, it’s going to help someone. There’s someone that needs to hear your voice. They need to know that they’re not alone. They need to know that they’re enough. That what happened to them is not the totality of who they are."

She Gets Around In Her Advocacy

I am thrilled to be featured in the Creative Mental Health Guide UK (page 7), along with some truly amazing people.  As you know, I advocate for mental health and trauma survivors.  It is empowering to have a voice in making a positive social change to break the stigma. 

In this issue, I speak about the power of creating from places of discomfort and the assault to the human spirit that occurs when we require pedigrees for everything, including merely existing.

So proud to a member of the international team and board member for the non-profit.

Today was my mother's birthday. It is also the date that she entered the hospital the final time before her death. Though we had an awkward relationship, I miss being able to call her and wishing her a Happy Birthday and hearing that loud voice and boisterous laugh. All I see now is an urn with an essence that is not her. She is at peace now, though, and no longer enduring the pain of this world. A world that shunned and ridiculed her, to which she did not belong - both by her choice and by that of society. Mama, I miss you, I love you and I will one day see you again. In the meantime, I need to know that I made you proud. That what I've done and who I've become is enough.

Hear Our Voices - Rape Survivors Speak
TRIGGER WARNING

I will be collaborating with Denisha and telling my rape truth, as well as providing trauma-informed guidance throughout the process.

I am also telling my story to local photojournalist Teresa Conway for a book.

It is time for survivors to stand up and use our voices to fight this human rights epidemic.

A Long Overdue Hello

Hello my friends,

No I haven't dropped off the face of the earth or forgotten about all of you.  Life has been complicated and busy for the past few months and only now is settling down.

I am still working on settling my mother's estate - inching closer and will hopefully be finished by the end of the year.  I expect that we will be cutting a check to Wisconsin since Mom had under $1000 in liquid assets, under $10K in personal property that I took possession of and the state wants $$$$$ back for the assistance she received. 

We just wrapped up 2 months of the tale of the woody, otherwise known as the furniture relocation project.  For the unfamiliar, this is the tale of the woody:  Over Memorial Day, the hubber and I flew to Utica, NY to assist my mil with downsizing her home in preparation for a move to Albany,NY. ... more »

A Long Overdue Hello

Hello my friends,

No I haven't dropped off the face of the earth or forgotten about all of you.  Life has been complicated and busy for the past few months and only now is settling down.

I am still working on settling my mother's estate - inching closer and will hopefully be finished by the end of the year.  I expect that we will be cutting a check to Wisconsin since Mom had under $1000 in liquid assets, under $10K in personal property that I took possession of and the state wants $$$$$ back for the assistance she received. 

We just wrapped up 2 months of the tale of the woody, otherwise known as the furniture relocation project.  For the unfamiliar, this is the tale of the woody:  Over Memorial Day, the hubber and I flew to Utica, NY to assist my mil with downsizing her home in preparation for a move to Albany, NY.  She is moving into an independent living complex.

As the only child who resides in the states, it fell to us to help.  We were gifted many beautiful antique pieces and drove a 14-foot UHaul van for 3 days and 36 hours back home.  In the process of said trip, the hubber managed to take out the overhang of the Comfort Inn & Suites in Maumee, OH and a tree when he parked in front of our house.  We then had to store the furniture for 1-1/2 months so we could have a garage and clear out the house to make room for said furniture.  That process finally wrapped up last weekend and the furniture is in and looking great. 

The utter exhaustion and taxation of my mind, emotions and body took me to a pretty dark place and it took everything I had to crawl out of that place, but here I am - rising again!

Other than that, I have been teaching workshops, trying t teach myself how to paint and doing zentangle. 

I will be here more often now that this adventure is done.

How are all of you?  +Christina Lihani +Christine Cantow Smith +Pam Adger +Shelly Gunderson +Lorie Wren +Lori Friedrich +Sean Cowen ___

Laugh at Myself Moment

That awkward moment when a company calls for an interview and upon refreshing your memory about the position and looking up what U/A is, you realize that you will be collecting pee samples in 12 hour shifts for half the week and doing data entry the rest of the time. Oh HELL TO THE NO! #nopeeforme  

I don't know how the urinalysis screening portion of the duties escaped my purview, but it did. Thankfully, I have applied for another position with the company so I have an easy out. I will simply say, "I have had a phone interview for ________ position with the company and I work best in direct service. The U/A position does not appear to provide the opportunity to do direct service, but thank you for your time."

What's Right With Me

#notesfromthewoodenwar #anymorerealandIdbehallucinating

So. . .for those of you who have been following the NY to NE transit, downsize, let's have a garage sale so we have room for the heirlooms adventure, here is the latest chapter.

Quick backstory:  My mil downsized her home so she and my fil can move into independent living.  Her current home is in Utica, NY; they are moving to Albany.  We flew out over Memorial day weekend, helped move heavy wood furniture up and down stairs and filled a 14' UHaul with items.  We then drove 33 hours in a UHaul back to Nebraska.  Drive went well except my husband had problems stopping when we arrived at the hotel the 1st night and at home the final night.  Uhaul 1, Comfort Inn and Suites overhang and gutter by the lobby: 0.  Tree and side mirror across the street for our home 0;UHaul ... more »

Quick backstory:  My mil downsized her home so she and my fil can move into independent living.  Her current home is in Utica, NY; they are moving to Albany.  We flew out over Memorial day weekend, helped move heavy wood furniture up and down stairs and filled a 14' UHaul with items.  We then drove 33 hours in a UHaul back to Nebraska.  Drive went well except my husband had problems stopping when we arrived at the hotel the 1st night and at home the final night.  Uhaul 1, Comfort Inn and Suites overhang and gutter by the lobby: 0.  Tree and side mirror across the street for our home 0; UHaul truck 1.



OK. . .karma and divine intervention. Hubber says "Why don't we go to the storage shed and take out some small stuff so we can begin getting things organized with the heirloom pieces?" I was not crazy about this idea b/c I'm still wiped but I also wanted my house put back together again, so I agree.

We arrive at the storage facility and they have no record of us having filled a unit on June 2nd. . .color drains from faces. We received one month free rental with the return of the truck. Clerk asks "Who did you speak with?" We got no paperwork for that transaction, though David asked repeatedly whether there was anything we needed to do and the clerk at that time told us "No, it's taken care of."

So they tell us that we would only have the space until July 2nd. We need help moving said furniture, so we won't be dealing with it until the 2nd week of July. So. . .we say well, we will need to pay for 1 month's rental at $70. Clerk tells us "It will be $95; the upstairs units are the $70 units. Heads blown. So we say: You had no record of us getting a unit a month ago when we turned in the truck, yet your guys pulled the truck up, inspected and returned said truck to your rental fleet, you didn't give us one month free, you're quoting the wrong price and if we hadn't come today, we may well have lost everything that we spent 3 days and thousands of $$$$$$$$$$$ moving here. They finally gave the month's rental, but we have to call the mgr to make sure everything is square.  #whatisrightwithmemoment  ___

Remembering mom and feeling so much. . .mostly overwhelm.  Her ashes arrive this coming week and the anniversary of her passing is a little more than a month away.  The trip in the UHaul to bring things back from NY brought a lot back to my mind.  Deja vu all over again in a way. . .

We make time for what we consider important.  What is calling YOU?

Being busy rarely equates to productivity these days. Just take a quick look around. Busy people outnumber productive people by a wide margin. Busy people are rushing all over the place, and running late half of the time. Their busy schedule gives them an elevated sense of importance. But it’s all an illusion. They’re like hamsters running on a wheel.

Though being busy can make us feel more alive than anything else for a moment, the sensation is not sustainable long term. We will inevitably, whether tomorrow or on our deathbed, come to wish that we spent less time in the buzz of busyness and more time actually living a purposeful life. - via: http://www.marcandangel.com/2014/01/29/10-painfully-obvious-truths-everyone-forgets-too-soon/___We make time for what we consider important.  What is calling YOU?

For my artist friends

A naive question b/c I am going outside my comfort zone - wayyyyyyyyyy outside.

The Joslyn Art Museum here in Omaha is doing a call for artists for an exhibition of local work next year.  Artists  have to do the usual submission via slideroom, etc and the jurors also visit the artist's studio.  What is the purpose of the studio visit and if one has a home studio, how would one best prepare for such a visit?  +Lena Levin +Beth Akerman +Ardith Goodwin +Yanik Falardeau +Ola Birch

Over Memorial Day weekend, the hubber and I flew to Utica, NY to help his mother downsize her home and to clear out the storage locker he'd been paying on for 15 years since he moved to Omaha.

We then drove the precious cargo of bone china, silver pieces, antique lines, books, and beautiful wood furniture back to Omaha in a UHaul truck for 3 days.  My advice:  No matter how much you love your spouse, you do not want to spend 33 hours in a UHaul truck with them.  The upside:  We stopped at Niagara on the way back home. 

Now, to have a garage sale to get rid of the current furniture so there is room for what we brought back.

I picked up my mail from mail hold and was thrilled to open that big envelope from DHHS and find this piece of paper that represents sooooooo much.

For 5 Saturdays I drove 125 miles round trip and met with the most diverse and ALIVE people I have ever had the pleasure to know. This group included persons in recovery from substance abuse, survivors of violence, veterans with traumatic brain injury and mental health consumers. Twenty-two people opened up, bared their souls, walked through the fire of opening Pandora's box, faced triggers and learned about themselves and others. I learned the origins of my learned behavior, I learned how to improve communication in all of my relationships, how to hold multiple truths and how to evaluate limits vs. boundaries. I made friends, had fun and earned EVERY SINGLE LETTER after my name. #soframingthis

Yesterday I spoke as part of a trauma survivor panel at the Success, Hopes & Dreams 2014 Statewide Behavioral Health Conference.  I told my abuse story, shared what I've learned and what has helped me in my recovery and discovering my ENOUGH and my Heart of A Warrior.  It was both empowering and draining.  The other panelists shared equally moving stories.

The way that we change the paradigmn of stigma and the silence of abuse is for those whose lives were impacted to stand up and speak.  This is how a community and its members learn and heal together.  +Lorie Wren +Shelly Gunderson +Sherrie von Sternberg +Susan Lewis +Suzanne Roberts +Olav Folland +Christina Lihani +Christine Cantow Smith +Ardith Goodwin+Chri... more »

TRANSCRIPT: 

Bruised, Not Broken – A Survival Story
Good afternoon.  My name is Paulissa Kipp. I am the face of child sexual abuse, domestic violence and rape.  My address of 1 Paulissa Kipp Place is shared with PTSD, anxiety and bipolar disorder.  Yet my past has not defined me, destroyed me, deterred me, or defeated me. 
How many of you have dropped a raw egg on your kitchen floor?  Is the egg the same as before you dropped it?  Of course not.  We have scrambled eggs!  A survivor will never be the same because abuse causes cracks in the veneer of the soul. A car's backfire, a sharp word or an uninvited movement into my personal space bring about a strong response.   My lived experience permeates my emotional, mental and physical state.  The past is projected onto the present, unbidden from a place deep inside.  Trust is given and trust is taken away.
The first trauma I can remember occurred the day of my 6 year old brother’s funeral.  The sexual abuse continued throughout my childhood and was replaced by domestic violence and rape.

I had nightmares, seizures, migraines, and couldn't concentrate. I began trying to alter my appearance hoping the abuse would stop – it didn’t. 
Developing healthy relationships has been difficult. My learned behavior was that a soft place to fall meant being violated. I projected all of my pain onto healthy relationships and made people who loved me into villains the same as those who hurt me. It cost me 3 marriages.
Healing from trauma requires a courage that does not come naturally. It often requires counseling and brutal honesty. It requires faith, even when you don’t know if the wound will heal.
I have learned passionate self-care from adversity.  I've learned that strength is forged in vulnerability.  Music is a safe place when I can't find the words for my inner struggle.  I discovered art journaling and the freedom of a blank page or canvas to listen. I've  noticed that I create the most color when I feel the most darkness.  I CAN now CREATE hope.  I've learned the power of a good rallying cry.  My favorite rallying ones?  I cannot fail, because it's all learning.  This too, shall pass.  And the one that is imprinted on my heart:
            "Beware out of the ash I rise. I embody the power of courage, the endurance of strength and the beauty of survival."
 

 
 
I AM FROM

I AM FROM an unwed mother and an absent father
I AM FROM a jailed brother and a dead brother
I AM FROM Clell and Eva, golden years interrupted
I AM FROM abandonment and the land of NEVER ENOUGH.
I AM FROM high expectations, always met but NEVER ENOUGH
I AM FROM abuse and neglect, rape, survival and hate
I AM FROM music – tribal drums, ebony and ivory, harp so sweet
I AM FROM cancer at age 29
The enemy within mixed with courage and cleansed with tears
I AM FROM LOVE
Giving what I need most
I AM FROM art
Paint and pencils, glue and gesso
Truth prospecting for gold amidst the hustle
I AM FROM the Phoenix rising from the ashes
Awakening from her slumber to own her destiny
I AM FROM Enough
I always was
I AM FROM the rolling stone, no moss to gather
I AM FROM outside the box
I AM FROM the Divine
Namaste
I AM FROM you and you are within me
I AM FROM Athena, beauty and wisdom
I AM FROM creation
Peace – just listen
I AM FROM the world, connected with breath
I AM FROM mental illness – of challenge and glorious triumph
I AM FROM tears and blessings,
Boundaries and an open heart
I AM FROM together and drawn apart
I AM FROM the hairless sink and the hill to kill
I AM FROM the smokehouse in the pouring rain, old maid and the missing card
I AM FROM a twirling baton under the summer sky,
close and play record players and dancing outside.
I AM FROM Mormons, Catholics, Lutherans, Jews, atheists, agnostics, Buddhists and Wiccans
I AM FROM nature, not nurture
I AM FROM enough!
Forged by pain
I AM FROM the journey is as important as the destination
I AM FROM joy, love and self-worth
I AM going where my soul sings
The destination matters not
I AM FROM the rainbow pot.

Discovering art during a mental health crisis, Paulissa Kipp's work combines lines, vibrant color, intuitive creation and truth prospecting to shine a light on the joys, lessons and pain of human existence. Through strong use of vibrant color, she creates HOPE. "I've discovered that when my life is at its darkest, that is when my work is the most colorful." What began as a means of self-expression has now become a means of passionate self-care. Working in watercolor, pen and ink, alcohol ink. zentangle and photography, her work reveals the beautiful, the curious and the often overlooked. Her work's predominant themes are empowerment, truth, courage, vulnerability, light and love - for oneself and humanity.

There is a sacredness to taking pen to paper, brush to canvas or ink to tile that allows the soul to speak. The medium has ears and listens, then whispers or roars what we most need to know.

Her work has been featured in:

Creative Mental Health Guide UK
EFD: Starship Goodwords Anthology
Notes to Self: Women's Writing From the Heart
Sems Redux by Charles Tichy - photo series for the book___

VERDICT:   A LOTTTTT of inflammation in my lungs.  Possibly viral or bacterial bronchitis and definitely a sinus infection and allergies.  Negative for RSV.  Antibiotics, cough suppressant and inhaler.  Check back next week BEFORE the speech if not feeling better.

Staying the course is definitely easier than starting over.  My lungs and life deserve more than I have been giving them.
