Black & White (BLW Contributor)

Ricardo Hanley Jr.

“If not for the black of this vast universe would we see the white light of the stars? White pages long to be touched with black ink, thoughts from the spatial mind that sink and climb beyond dark heights and depths, to find illumination for their breath. To dwell in light is to live, though to be in darkness in is not to die. When death reveals itself do we not say walk into the light, if so then how can black be personified as a deathly color? White lies and black plagues, our colors used out of context, called out of their names. The black soil will conceive a sweet white lily that will meet with all other colors, sisters and brothers of the spectrum. The white canvas says not to the black paint; touch me not with your taint. There is no separation in these shades, no spaces…

THE KEY TO CHANGE (BLW Contributor)

thevacilando

We often face these situations in life. Situations which urge us to do something new, something different. A new year rolls in, and you plan on transforming yourselves. A new semester starts, and you promise to get better grades this time. You’re celebrating your birthday, and suddenly realize how many years have slipped by. You’ve not reached your potential yet. You can do better than this. And you vow to change.

But change isn’t easy. The older you grow, the more difficult it becomes. Here’s what my experiences have shown me. You don’t initiate change with willpower, you do it with action.

“If nothing around you changes, change the things that are around you.” Tyrese Gibson

Although I lash out against faith time and again, I will say this. Have faith in yourself. Believe in you. Your experiences show that you’ll fail? The odds indicate you’ll fail? Ignore them. They’re…

Marriage or casual sex?

feedthequeen

Here we go again. I am back and ready to commit… To my blog that is.

Let’s jump straight into it. This has been a topic that I’ve been coming across a lot lately. And I’ve been asking myself… Am I a marriage person or a causal sex person? Do I want to spend the rest of my life with one man or do I want multiple lovers from across the globe?

Hmmmm… Both sound kinda good.

But for real, I’m freaking out. I don’t know what I want. Like…. Men are nice and all, but I’m still waiting to meet someone that I REALLY CONNECT WITH. I MEAN CONNECT WITH FULLY, LIKE 100%. I wanna be with someone that I can connect with emotionally, spiritually, physically, mentally and all of that good stuff. And unfortunately people now a days are just too guarded and messed up to even want…

Scientists Create Artificial Womb That Could Help Prematurely Born Babies – What are your thoughts?

Adidas Wilson

Scientists have created an “artificial womb” in the hopes of someday using the device to save babies born extremely prematurely.

So far the device has only been tested on fetal lambs. A study published Tuesday involving eight animals found the device appears effective at enabling very premature fetuses to develop normally for about a month.

“We’ve been extremely successful in replacing the conditions in the womb in our lamb model,” says Alan Flake, a fetal surgeon at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia who led the study published in the journal Nature Communications.

“They’ve had normal growth. They’ve had normal lung maturation. They’ve had normal brain maturation. They’ve had normal development in every way that we can measure it,” Flake says.

Flake says the group hopes to test the device on very premature human babies within three to five years.

“What we tried to do is develop a system that mimics…

Why we should NEVER skip breakfast!

3

Nowadays, many people are always on the run and in a rush and the majority think “eh, I’ll just have a cup of coffee for breakfast.” That’s not an actual breakfast guys!!!!

Breakfast should be composed of protein (eggs are the most common), whole grains (oats, whole grain bread, etc), a healthy fat (avocados, coconut oil, olive oil) and a side of fruit. Proteins and whole grains will prevent you from feeling hungry in an hour, your body will take longer to process it and it will greatly aid in your concentration.

There are many benefits for eating breakfast especially if you are trying to lose weight, you should NEVER skip it. Here are the most common benefits:

1. It helps maintain your blood sugar, thus keeping you energized and keeps away the hunger throughout the morning. This will help you avoid those impulsive-mid-morning snacks.

2. It helps you reduce…

Hope is a the thing with feathers by Emily Dickinson

b91fbd24df0fa6abc812f6f34e3fde70

Hope is the thing with feathers

That perches in the soul, 

And sings the tune without the words,

And never stops at all.

And sweetest in the gale is heard;

And sore must be the storm

That could abash the little bird

That kept so many warm.

I’ve heard it in the chilliest land

And on the strangest sea;

Yet, never, in extremity,

It asked a crumb of me.

The unhealthy stigma about healthy eating

1

Berries and Stitches

Everybody who likes to eat healthily, or has specific dietary requirements knows the situation: you’re out with friends, they decide to get a takeaway, and you, with your ‘fussy’ eating, are left wondering what you’re going to do for your meal. Of course, there’s nothing wrong with having the occasional takeaway, but if you’re anything like me, a processed, stodgy meal does not appeal (I’m more into chocolate than burgers).

Unfortunately, there’s a sort of stigma around eating healthily, that you wouldn’t expect to find today, but most people have probably experienced it. Eating healthily is different to being on a diet; it’s a lifestyle, and what I think most people misunderstand is that most of the time, you would rather have that delicious salad from your favourite coffee shop, than fried chicken or a burger from your local takeaway. Personally, I have no specific dietary requirements, I’m not vegan…

Q: Do you always need to feel inspired to create?

The Artist Diaries

I’ve been feeling very unmotivated recently when it comes to painting.

To be completely honest, I just feel like I can’t be bothered. I feel lethargic and ‘heavy’ when I think about it, like it’s too much effort for so little in return (meaning either an unfinished painting or worse — a painting I dislike).

Lying in bed last night I remembered several conversations I’ve had over the past couple of years about the nature of motivation and inspiration, and how our feelings aren’t actually the most reliable gauge in terms of whether or not we should do something.

Feeling lethargic and unmotivated doesn’t have to stop me from being creative. In fact, no feeling has the power to prevent me from doing anything without my complicity.

I can complain of feeling horribly uninspired and still put paint on a canvas. I can feel moody and bored and still doodle on a…
