Flash Mob is a Collective Inspiration

I am still not tired of flash mobs because they promote collective inspiration. It’s a beautiful art work where people with the same talent (or even those who are on their way to getting there) unite to entertain. A person who witnessed this surprising performance will not stop to smile (can’t even stop to record the performance through his video phone), be in awe and would count the experience a true inspiration.

For the spirit of Christmas, I am sharing the one that happened in 2011 – Westfield Penrith, Sydney, Australia.

Daniel Edlen, Creating Art on the Artifacts of Creativity

Daniel Edlen has an intrinsic gift for painting and he awesomely combined that talent with another type of passion that is his love for music and yet another twist to put it on liter(art)ure. An artist graces this blog and he shares his passion –

  • Description. My passion is seeing and communicating that vision through my work.
  • Discovery. When I was six, I took an art class which taught me how to see. It started me on my journey.
  • Conquered Challenges. I had to get past my self doubt. I’ve been able to handle criticism from others for a long time, but I still am my biggest critic and sometimes discourage myself.
  • Feeling for Living. Blessed and human.
  • Greatest Achievements. Having my work shown at VH1 in NY. Pieces in the Hard Rock Hotel in Hollywood, FL are big ones. Getting to give http://vinylart.info/dlfm.htm to the David Lynch Foundation was a great honor.
  • Sharing. I share my work as directly as possible, mostly online. I always enjoy finding new audiences, like the readers of your blog, with whom to share what I do.

Try It On My Own

Performed by: Whitney Houston
Written by: Aleese Simmons, Babyface, Carole Bayer Sager, Jason Edmonds, and Nathan Walton

The music and the video display an inspiration to rely on ourselves with courage and pursue what we truly feel.

Try It On My Own

I’m wiser now
I’m not the foolish girl you used to know
So long ago
I’m stronger now
I’ve learned from my mistakes which way to go
And I should know
I put myself aside to do it in your way
But now I need to do it all alone

And I am not afraid to try it on my own
I don’t care if I’m right or wrong
I’ll live my life the way I feel
No matter what I’ll keep it real
You know
Time for me to do it on my own

It’s over now
I can’t go back to living through your eyes
Too many lies
And if you don’t know by now
I can’t go back to being someone else
Not anymore
I never had the chance to do things my way
So now it’s time for me to take control

And I am not afraid to try it on my own
I don’t care if I’m right or wrong
I’ll live my life the way I feel
No matter what I’m gonna keep it real
You know
Time for me to do it on my own

Oh, I start again go back to one
I’m running things in my way
Can’t stop me now I’ve just begun
Don’t even think about
It there aint no way about it
I’m taking names go down the line
Yes I’m gonna take my turn
It’s time for me to finally stand alone
Stand alone

I am not afraid to try it on my own
I don’t care if I’m right or wrong
I’ll live my life the way I feel
No matter what I’m gonna keep it real
You know
It’s time for me to do it

See I am not afraid to try it on my own
And I don’t care if I’m right or wrong
I’ll live my life the way I feel
No matter what I’m gonna keep it real
You know
It’s time for me to do it on my own
