This is still one of my favorite pictures ever, its saved in my phone and I never knew who the artist was but literally….this makes me feel so comfortable. Just looking at it. For some reason it reminds me that no matter what happens in a relationship, there was a moment when they brought your soul great contentment. There was a moment that they brought you so much peace and you have to just appreciate that, any moment that someone puts energy into your happiness is a gift. It may not have worked out, it may have turned dark and painful, but maybe its all worth it just for that moment.
Lyrical and deliberately paced, Amar follows a 14 year-old Indian boy at the top of his class who would someday like to be a teacher. The focus is simply on Amar’s daily routine. We watch life, with all its tiny idiosyncrasies, play out. Amar wakes up. He dresses and heads off to his first early morning job. When he takes a moment from his daily routine and reads a newspaper, it’s as if we are witnessing a silent moment of triumph, presented with no artificial fanfare. He also happens to be his family’s main breadwinner, working two jobs six and half days a week. But, this film isn’t an analysis of Amar’s misery or an expose on his suffering. No, it’s instead a quiet celebration of the human spirit–of a boy whose tenacity and quiet resolve carry him through every day. In the end, the film is not attempting to make some grand, profound statement. It’s not requesting that we view Amar has some sort of hero or metaphorical beacon of light. It just asks that we pay attention—give up nine minutes of our lives to halt our lamentations of the world and remember, if just for a moment, that there truly is beauty left.
……For when my vibes are feeling low, I think about you and my face starts to glow and that’s no jive. 🎶☺️🎶
Today we celebrated the Earthlight of His Imperial Majesty Jah Ras Tafari Haile Selassie I the First!!! Give Thanks and Praise for HIM in InI heart and soul.💚💛❤️ #JahLives #OnlyJahLove #ForeverThroddinKingSelassieWay 🚶🚶🚶
A qualified man with vision, unmoved by daily selfish interests, will be led to right decisions by his conscience. In general, a man who knows from whence he comes and where he is going will co-operate with his fellow human beings. He will not be satisfied with merely doing his ordinary duties but will inspire others by his good example. You are being watched by the nation and you should realize that you will satisfy it if you do good; but if, on the contrary, you do evil, it will lose its hope and its confidence in you.”
May His Imperial Majesty grant I&I the wisemind to over stand His words and the courage to live up to the ideal livity He has shown I&I. 🙏👑🙏 #Jah #Rastafari #SelassieIDaFirst #EverFaithful 🌟#EverSure🌟 #SelassieILevitateI #HIM #KingOfKings 👑 #EverLiving🌟GuideOvaUs 🎉🎊🎉🎊
