Photography by @AdrianaZehbrauskas ”About once an hour, Graciela Elizalde’s brain electrifies in epileptic seizures intense enough that her brown eyes dance wildly back and forth and she spreads her arms out like a cartoon ghost. These are the big brain quakes, but there are hundreds of flash tremors each day that leave the 8-year-old Mexican girl exhausted and limp. After years of cycling through ­anti-convulsive medications, her family is now desperate to try the one experimental treatment that Mexico prohibits — a marijuana oil that has helped American children in similar conditions." These photos are part of a @WashingtonPost story that followed 8-year-old Graciela Elizalde and her family’s fight to access cannabidiol (CBD) to treat her seizures, in Monterrey, Mexico. Check in on our page tomorrow to continue Graciela's story.

We need to find a solution
We need to find a solution
So excited to share the sharks I created for @sharkeducation in collaboration for my #200sharks project 💙🦈💙 Only got the Saw Shark to paint 💙 .
.
Also the #Giveaway winner from last week is @getwetwithrob 🦈🦈CONGRATULATIONS 💙
All of these sharks are classed as endangered according to the IUCN red list! All are victims of bycatch and fining 🦈 Let's do something about this!! Here are some ways we can #savesharks on a day to day basis:
1. Educate yourself! The most important thing you can do to help sharks is learn about the different sharks of the world, their habitats, and behaviors. By educating yourself you can educate others. 
2. Do not use shark products!! The obvious ones to think about are do no eat shark meat or shark fin soup. But did you know that Shark cartilage and oils are found in a range of products from beauty items to health nutrition, for example lipstick.
3. Reduce your seafood consumption! Commercial fishing negatively impacts sharks in two ways. First, it reduces the populations of their food sources and secondly sharks are often killed as a byproduct of commercial fishing. Hate to be that person, but go vegan! 
4. Reduce, reuse and recycle!! sharks often mistake garbage for food. Plastic is also consumed by the marine species that sharks eat. So sharks will eventually consume non-food products, leading to illness and death.
5. Donate And Volunteer With Shark Conservation Organizations!!
6. Speak Out When You See Abuse! If you live near the oceans or are just on vacation, if you see someone abusing sharks, speak out. Whether they are poking and prodding them or illegally hunting them, tell the authorities what you’ve seen!
7. GO DIVING OR SEE SHARKS FOR YOURSELF!! Trust me its a life changing experience.. I mean look at me now, I now have dedicated my life to saving them!
8. Spread Awareness On Social Media! A powerful and important tool!
9. Use your skill to create change!

That said, I don't intend to come off as bitter or hateful in anyway, just temporarily disheartened. But this isn't an end, just a different chapter. I'm sure my audience is out there and that this film (as well as future films) will find a way to other's and touch who is in need of this sort of artistic expression. It would be some sort of sick irony to let times like these get me down after pouring my soul into a film that's about the crushing power of depression. I wholely intend to keep pushing this film out there.  I also look forward to seeing what worthy contenders made it into SIFF this year and to opportunities ahead. SIFF wasn't the only stop I intended for Burden, but was definitely a preferred first. Now is the time to start looking at the future options and begin making plans for Burden to see the light of day elsewhere. As I repeat to myself throughout every day, onward, upward and keep on keeping on.

(1/2)  This might seem a bit backwards but I have a mixed bag of feelings to get off my chest this monday morning.  On my way home from the gym I decided to check my email to find that a film I wrote/directed/produced was NOT accepted into the Seattle Independent Film Festival. A large number of factors go into programming festivals and I am in no way using this as a platform to attack or say bad things about the festival or other festivals out there. But I'd be lying if I said it didn't affect me in some way. I can't help but feel at least some disappointment in this news.  Since the first draft of the script this has been an incredibly intimate and personal journey bringing every aspect of this project to life, so one might be able to understand the thrill of potentially screening the film at a highly reputable and attended festival. Being that SIFF requires premiere status for their screenings, I have been holding this project close. Ever since locking the cut to where it is now, there has been a burning hole in my chest that grows every day I am unable to bring the film to an audience. It's something all artists face, the struggle between the love for creation and the lust for validation.  Having made the film is a feat of it's own, but is a dream and goal only half realized. Without people to see an artist's work, the message is lost and without resonance. The patience that goes into getting the opportunity to show off your hard work can only withstand so much.

i stepped out to do this really big thing this morning. to launch what has been growing within me for over a year now. to make the visions tangible and give them breath. and i stepped in it, and stood there, and i started - and i left.

see, i knew that the plans i had built and rebuilt and refined and analyzed and changed over this last year were all right and all wrong. i knew that the many forms this has taken we’re still taking shape. you see, what i did today was begin. i have begun. and what i do from this point on is to honor this beginning. to make this whole. to make this live.

Paula Hayes Terrariums

The artist Paula Hayes has always been obsessed with the natural world, so it was never a question of if shewould incorporate plants into her work, but how. That answer came in 2004. At a show entitled “Forest” at Salon 94 in New York, she introduced the world to the contemporary terrarium: a delicate blown-glass sphere filled with stones, moss, and a few small plants. The art world’s reaction to her work was immediate and enthusiastic. 
That Hayes would elevate the terrarium to fine art makes sense in light of her upbringing and education. The artist grew up in rural Massachusetts, where she spent the majority of her childhood playing by herself outdoors. When she moved to New York City in the 1980s to attend the Parsons School of Design, she began working as a gardener on the side. “I had to be around plants when I moved to New York City,” A combination of idealism and escapism is what elevated Hayes’s terrariums beyond those of the past, into the world of both fine art and contemporary design. After making her first terrarium out of geometric wood and glass, Hayes decided to experiment with other shapes. “I wanted to manifest what I experienced emotionally when I feel overcome with a positive charge,” she told Artsy. She settled on blown-glass containers because of the way they mimic the curve of the sky. “The container itself has this relationship to the dome of heaven—you can imagine yourself inside,” she said.

Upcoming workshop! To register, visit www.manifesto13.com
Title: Just Girl
Ages: 11 - 18 years
Date: May 22, 24, 29, 31
Time: 2 PM - 4 PM
Facilitator: Noora Kassem @theconnection.kw •••
The purpose of Just Girl is to help girls become literate in all media forms. This empowers girls as consumers of media to control the interpretation of what they see or hear rather than let the persuasion intent of media control them.  Setting the curriculum apart is its use of art as a means to educate, inspire, reflect, transform, and encourage social change. The curriculum and methodology are the result of an extended collaboration involving adolescent girl advisors, leading scholars, educators, media activists, health experts, and artists.

Art for change: Alejandro Durán is a multimedia artist who investigates the impact of consumer culture on the natural world. This piece ‘Brotes (Shoots), 2014’ is from his project ‘Washed Up’. Over the course of the project Durán has identified plastic waste from fifty-eight nations and territories on six continents that have washed ashore along the coast of Sian Ka'an, Mexico's largest federally protected reserve.

What's your 'plastic footprint'? The most dedicated of us may think (or hope) we're leaving only footprints, but what do our daily habits reveal?
.
If you had to live with your own garbage for a day, a month, a year, what would surround you? For most of us, single use plastic's and plastic in general would make up much of it.
.
Appropriately, Earth Day 2018's theme is aimed to #EndPlasticPollution.
Doing so is definitely an uphill battle in today's world, but each of our consumer choices and household practices freaking matter.
.
Together we are a powerful catalyst for change, moving towards a world with even more fish, and even less plastic. Piece by piece I'm aiming to #breakupwithplastic in 2018, what about you? What are you already doing to help and what's next?

What's your 'plastic footprint'? The most dedicated of us may think (or hope) we're leaving only footprints, but what do our daily habits reveal? . If you had to live with your own garbage for a day, a month, a year, what would surround you? For most of us, single use plastic's and plastic in general would make up much of it. . Appropriately, Earth Day 2018's theme is aimed to #EndPlasticPollution . Doing so is definitely an uphill battle in today's world, but each of our consumer choices and household practices freaking matter. . Together we are a powerful catalyst for change, moving towards a world with even more fish, and even less plastic. Piece by piece I'm aiming to #breakupwithplastic  in 2018, what about you? What are you already doing to help and what's next? .

Why 200 sharks? This project developed and evolved from learning about how sharks are being threatened to extinction. Every 60 seconds it is estimated that 200 sharks are lost due to man kind. I wanted to illustrate the beauty and diversity of this species, how they vary in shape, size, character and colour! I wanted to project my passion for them onto you, you don't need to love them, but please respect them 👊🏻✊🏻

Awesome shot taken by @divephoto_emery 💙🦈 Has been an awesome few weeks of filming for their documentary and can't wait to show you guys the finished piece 🤙🏻 .

Through her long years, she has learned that that her thoughts give meaning to things, people, and events in her life.  If she has a choice about how to think about her life She chooses to see only light.  Her skin folds into creases, but this doesn’t bother her.  God created her full of light and unconditional love.  Her body is like a threadbare dress, but it’s just a vehicle to get her from place to place.  Time erodes the illusion of external beauty. She takes care of her body, but she knows that it is temporary.

Her blessing to you: May you befriend the beauty within.  May you also care for your body as a trusted friend.  In the end, may your body be a well worn suit of clothes that you discard with ease and gratitude.

Today let us remember a simple truth that lies at the very core: that we love our world, we love each other, and we love the miracle of life that we have each been gifted. Love is our essential state of being; it is who we are and what we are made of. Let us find the courage to fully feel the depth of it, until we fall on our knees in gratitude for the incomprehensively amazing miracle we are all part of. May love become our cornerstone, the unshakable foundation of our worldview, the platform from which we step together into a new story of collective healing, beauty, connection, generosity, hope, and joy. There is nothing standing in our way. www.albatrossthefilm.com

The Blue whale (Balaenoptera musculus), the largest creature to have ever existed on this earth. These elusive creatures grace the vast depths of the ocean, only seldom being spotted on the surface as they rise to breathe. However, no matter how big the animal, they are at threat from the great amount of plastic circulating the ocean. This Earth Day, think about how much you contribute to plastic pollution and consider all the ways in which you can minimise your plastic footprint #endplasticpollution

Throwback to my first plastic ocean piece. 🐋
I created this one when I was living in Indonesia. While living there I was a lot more exposed to the human waste impact on the planet. The amount of plastic bags in the supermarket, rivers clogged with garbage and people resorting to burning their garbage in their garden.
It was during my time there that I realised how much waste humans are producing. This problem is quite hidden in the western countries since we have very good waste management, however that doesn't change how much we throw away.
We must all become more aware of our plastic consumption and try our best to limit it. Buy glass over plastic, go to the farmers market for fruit and veggies and refuse single use plastic such as straws and plastic bags.
If even 30% of the world population thinks "one person actually can make a difference" then we can create a cleaner, better world 🌏

Just mailed our 17 NAHS & AP students' Memory Project portraits! Each student was paired with a Puerto Rican child deeply affected by poverty and hurricane devastation. These children, who often don't have many personal belongings, will receive their own hand-drawn portrait of themselves and a donation to the organization that assists them. Great work High Point artists.

19/100 'I take responsibility for my life.' We often look outside  of ourselves for direction, validation...even happiness. We can fall into a victim mindset. We self sabotage. We hide our light. We don't live to our full potential. We forget to do what brings us joy. The owl is wise and perceptive. She can guide us.  If we take a long silent and honest look at our interior world (like our reflection in the mirror) what would we learn? What one thing could we change today to get us started? .

.*Early this morning I reversed into an unfamiliar car that was parked across from our driveway. I was on my way to take my vollie art class at the hospital. It felt like an enormous failure on my behalf. And how dare this happen when I am grieving the death of my dog...on top of negotiating extended family issues? And hey I was on my way to do something good for others. And of course (because now I was on a roll...) I was disappointed in the low numbers in the class after a whole lot of prep, and frustrated with a bossy volunteer on my team. Sigh. What a victim mentality! .
.
.*Time to claim my inner wise woman and shine a more positive light into my situations. For example. Take my little car incident...many of our patients have been in serious car accidents and are bed bound or in wheelchairs. Jeepers my little bump to that car was nothing at all! It might cost me money to repair the guy's car, but we are in no way injured AND he was really understanding. .
.
.* So what one thing am I going to do? Tomorrow I am going to try to play Pollyanna's Glad Game. That's what I just did above. I will find an excuse to see good in every circumstance. .
.
*Wish me luck. A victim mentality is a hard habit to break. .

Thrilled to announce that Albatross has been awarded the Best In Festival Prize at the Princeton Environmental Film Festival. Director Susan Conlon: "Albatross helped us take the festival where we want to go: beyond external examinations to internal self-awareness."

"Vote Them Out" found protest poster. I'm starting a new March for Our Lives weaving with reds, whites, and orange. Did you make it out yesterday?
