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.

Vlogtober Day 2 – Texas Pyramids

Simplicity is the name of the mother flipping game. This is day 2 of Vlogtober/Blogtober.

I’ll be taking you on a journey through the meaning behind my song lyrics for songs released during my current challenge which is the #keepit100withthyself challenge. Currently, I am on day 18 and the song is Texas Pyramids.

Vlogtober/Blogtober Day 2: Texas Pyramids

 

In this video, I break down my theory of humans being more extraordinary than pyramids, my travels outside of the USA that sparked lines for the song, sleep routines, not being distracted by social media and more!

This song shows up on my album, Excuse My Graffiti, which you can stream here.

Day 1 of Vlogtober/ Blogtober

I decided to participate in Vlogtober and Blogtober this year. My original idea was to break down my song lyrics and combine it with my current challenge that I am on day  17 with. That is my #keepit100withthyself challenge, where for 100 days I will release an original song from my 10-year span of music. As October 1st progressed, I thought of more ideas. As a result, I was editing until about 11:30 pm. I am not about to do that every day. So I took a walk and went with my original idea. Within an hour I shot and edited the new video.

Vlogtober/Blogtober Day 1: Expendable

In this video, I break down the meaning and thought process behind one of my crowd favorite song, Expendable.

 

 

This song shows up on my album, Graffiti The Mind, Produced entirely by Ruler Why.

Day 17: Expendable
