THE COMPOSITION – SAN ANTONIO’S MULTI-MEDIUM ART COLLECTIVE MAKES IT’S DEBUT AT BRICK

San Antonio is booming with creativity from all sides of the spectrum.

I wanted a way to be able to showcase that talent while funneling my adventures and ideas into a gathering of creatives. “The Composition” is just that. Showcasing musical acts, live painting, local creators, short film screenings, and an open mic, May 29th debuted what started as an open mic at the historic Tucker’s Kozy Korner, and turned into a Multi-Medium art collective at Brick at Blue Star Arts Complex.

Hosted By Poet & Entrepreneur, Kinyo, and Dj King Khari of Ankh Lyfe on the 1’s and 2’s, The Composition delivered a successful night with amazing performances by Vocab, Palmleaf SkyLines, and myself, Mr. CompositionMarquese Kese screened a trailer for his short film, “Jim Crow”. A.R.W was present as well as VibeHeadz Technology, Milicent( Who also took photos) and Mista BoomBastick. Beautiful art painted by Kwanzaa, Emari, and Comp.

A night full of surprises and good vibes!

Thank you, everyone, that came out!

Don’t miss the next one June 26th!

FROM TEXAS WITH LOVE; THESE TEXAS ARTIST ARE TRAVELING THE WORLD WITH ART 

Like all great travelers, I have seen more than I remember, and remember more than I have seen.

-Benjamin Disraeli

 

When I was younger, one of the things I wanted to do was go on road trips during spring break and the summer. Though I didn’t go on a road trip during high school, I’ve managed to still accomplish that dream as a traveling musician and writer. Like with many things in life, traveling can better with friends or a loved one. Don’t get me wrong, I love a good solo journey, but some of my favorite moments have been traveling with others. Writing this in a Starbucks in El Paso, Texas on the way to Japan, I realized, many of friends are traveling as well!

Take a look below and catch them live if they’re in a city near you!

FLOAT Away from Domestic Abuse: San Antonio’s Sensory Deprivation Specialist throw event to bring awareness to Domestic Abuse on International Women’s Day

We’ve heard about it in stories, movies, religion, and philosophies. Love. This state of being that can bring us freedom, but what is not often talked about is how we can become a slave to it. How our beloved Prince/Princess charming can turn into our torturer, and in many cases, executioner when it comes to domestic abuse.

 

What is Domestic Abuse?

Domestic abuse is the mistreatment, (mental, physical, or emotional) by one person against another in a domestic setting, such as in marriage or cohabitation. Also known as intimate partner violence. According to a report released by the Texas Council on Family Violence, 1 in 3 Texas women will experience domestic abuse.

 

Victims of Domestic Abuse and Mental Health? The Connection…

As more studies and awareness is brought to the public on mental health, new connections are being made between mental health and victims of Domestic Abuse. Researchers at King’s College London’s Institute of Psychiatry and the University of Bristol conducted 41 studies around the world, and the data show an alarming find. Most victims of domestic violence, male, and female,  suffer from a wide range mental health disorders.

FLOAT away Domestic Abuse.

Float Tanks (also known as sensory deprivation tank or isolation tank) are soundproof pods in which the user floats in a zero-gravity like state, with their body floating halfway submerged in water and Epson salt. They are used for a wide range of healing from Pain ReliefPTSD  and more. Taking care of your health is both your ally in leaving domestic violence and in the healing after. Individuals who develop PTSD may have gone through domestic abuse.

FLOAT is one of few Float Tank practices that we have here in San Antonio, Texas. They even have massage services as well. Also. they offer the Weightless Warrior Program, which gifts a free 60- minute float session to Veterans and Active Duty military!

SA HAVEN event Presented by FLOAT

Last night at the Paper Tiger, FLOAT held an event to bring awareness to domestic abuse. 100% of all profits will go to non-profit causes in San Antonio that raise awareness about domestic violence.

 

There is help available.

FLOAT & Paper Tiger did an amazing job on International Women’s Day by delivering a successful event that brought attention to domestic abuse, in which women are impacted by the most. LiL BO WEEP, ambient singer/DJ from Australia headlined the event. Local support provided by LloronasILa Minori, and Canyon Lake Trip-Hop duo Voodoo Boogaloo. All the acts brought a peaceful dance of pain, hope, and unity.

In astrology, Jupiter (Larget planet in our solar system, the planet of expansion, Masculine energy) went retrograde March 8th at 23° Scorpio (Zodiac sign of deep healing, Evolution, Feminine energy) and ends on July 10 at 13° Scorpio. These next few months offer an interesting balance of healing from both energies in the most nurturing way.

Take advantage of this time and heal.

If you are a victim of domestic abuse, Men, and Women, or know someone who is, don’t hesitate to reach out to the many organizations available for help.

 The Rape Crisis Center – provides care for those impacted by sexual violence through counseling, crisis intervention, and prevention education. Also offers FREE counseling for trauma, abuse, and couples.
