Todays dream like state brought to you by the legendary @craigparryphotography via @oceana
my dream state of paradise. the distortion and perfection that brings me back to this image time and time again. ever since taking up the art of photography i had this piece in my imagination, combining two worlds in one image with an abstract feature. inspire by the incredible abstract works from salvador dali. #salvadordali#artivism#ourchoicesmatter

By @climbingpoetree when i'm at the ocean long enough i've made large scale sculptures for yemaya. usually they take hours, some times days to complete. the whole time i'm in deep meditation. i always make 4 arrows in the 4 directions. the last three times i've made these sculptures dolphins have come to the edge of the shore. the first time it seemed coincidental when a school of dolphins showed up and a mama and her cub nursed and played at the tip of the arrow pointing towards the sea. they were with us close to an hour before disappearing into the deep blue. the second time it felt like a miracle when they showed up leaping outside of the water in joy, but this last time it truly felt like they were listening, two dolphins hanging out at the end of the arrow yet again. it felt like the sea herself was listening and had sent her messengers to let us know (see video). luckily work had us going to the ocean only weeks after our house burned, and getting to the water was the most healing experience since our life went upside down. this sculpture was made collectively with my wise fool friends. we prayed by her for release and protection. all this to say, the universe is listening intently. what is it that we are trying to say?
Feeling inspired by all the creativity this week in miami for #artbasel 💘

Yesterday the oceanic team, in partnership with @alphaainc gathered roughly 300 pounds of trash from a small s***p of shoreline in miami as part of our artivism challenge. this shoreline is part of a public park, and we weren't able to get close to everything that was there. miami - this is your trash. as many as our friends descend on miami for #artbasel, let's all remember that #ourchoicesmatter - that everywhere we go we can leave each place better or worse than we found it, and that the power is in our hands. you can and will change the world - if that's good or bad is up to you. #ourchoicesmatter#miami
#givingtuesday is a global giving movement that has been built by individuals, families, organizations, businesses and communities in all 50 states and in countries around the world. millions of people have come together to support and champion the causes they believe in and the communities in which they live.
we have two days for getting deals – black friday and cyber monday. on #givingtuesday, we have a day for giving back. together, people are creating a new ritual for our annual calendar. #givingtuesday is the opening day of the giving season: a reminder of the “reason for the season.” every act of generosity counts, and each means even more when we give together. #givingtuesday includes people of all ethnicities, religions and backgrounds. together, millions of people demonstrate our common capacity to give.
#givingtuesday is a celebration of america’s greatest traditions: generosity, entrepreneurialism, community. everyone has something to give. you can give time or expertise, monetary donations large or small, simple acts of kindness, food or clothing.
if you work for a company that dobles mondations made by employees, we encourage you to submit matching gift requests! 📷: @chrisleidyphotography#ourchoicesmatter#yougetwhatyougive
