When I placed this picture on Facebook I promised I would post a few more photos of the shoot in my blog, as they all show nipples and I don’t want to be banned from Facebook, especially during these exciting times that the 30,000 sealed indictments are being unsealed and the most notorious sex trafficking paedophiles are being rounded up.
Often the last photo turns out the best. This was the last shot Sari Erdos took, and it is one of my favourites. I’ve called that photograph HOPE. To me it shows the little girl inside of me; a scared child; feeling worthless and hopeless. It also shows the woman inside of me; a vulnerable but strong warrior, fighting for justice and hopeful for the future.
This photo reminds me of the Egyptian goddess Isis, the patron saint of women, mothers and children. The children. How appropriate.
This was the first shot of the session. I’ve called that photograph BALANCE. In the year 2000 I received my first taste of yoga in India and I’ve been practising yoga ever since. Yoga has saved my life. It has saved me from drowning in depression. It has saved me from debilitating panic and anxiety attacks. I always tell my yoga students that the strong body is nothing but a bonus. But a nice bonus indeed. Looking closer at the photo I realized that the right side of my face is covered in scars. No need to explain how they got there. They are part of who I am.
I’ve called this photograph LITTLE FLOWER. It’s the title of a song I’m working on. The lyrics are coming along, but the melody will take a little longer.
Sometimes people ask me if I miss my country, Holland. No, I don’t. It’s a country I never really felt home for the simple reason that I dance too wild and I laugh too loud for the Dutch folks.
The rest of the photographs are called SEDUCTION.
Not only have we’ve been creative in the photography department, the past few months we’ve worked very hard in creating a video about El Jardin’s ‘Noche de Divas’. Many times before we’ve worked with Martin Wetheril, the Australian videographer. It was a wonderfully creative collaboration again.
Here’s the video Martin made for the Amarte Maroma Project, some 4 years ago..
Here’s the trailer of the documentary Martin created 6 years ago.
And here is the full documentary called ‘To sing for your Supper’. I know it’s a little long for today’s attention span, but still wanted to include the video.
This time Martin and I worked very closely together. Because he didn’t really knew any of the songs, he handed me every single clip he filmed. I then categorized over one hundred videos from six different shows and subsequently returned the exact footage and sequence to Martin.
The first video gives a general promotion of our show, with 5 different performers. The second video has more of a documentary element in it, as it shows many behind the scenes footage. I must admit I’m really proud with the result. I’ve been able to create a beautiful stage with a specific style of music and matching dresses. Not to mention the many talented performers who have walked into our restaurant for an audition.
We took a little break, but restaurant El Jardin will open it’s doors again on Monday June 4.
Friday June 8 we’ll continue with our ‘Noche de Divas’, introducing Miss Vronze, a possible new diva who is auditioning for a spot on our stage.
No politics? Well, at this moment I only have one message: Follow the Q Phenomenon.
The writing is on the wall. It is time to stand up for what you believe in. Time is up. Let’s put an end to government corruption together. Follow the white rabbit to the Great Awakening. You are the storm and the storm has arrived.
If you are in the know about the Q Phenomenon, I don’t need to explain more. You probably have your citizen journalist sources, like YouAreFreeTV or our all time favourite Jordan Sather from DestroyingTheIllusion. For obvious reasons the Google Gestapo has terminated his YouTube channel for misleading content. Still, his and our voice will not be silenced. Not this time.
I found a very recent interview with Jordan Sather from the channel of Economy of World. Jordan gives a clear explanation of his view on QAnon and the geo political state of this planet, at this very moment.
TRUST THE PLAN.
WHERE WE GO ONE WE GO ALL.
