A Diary of Silver linings: why I’m a creator you follow

Bless up from your feet to your head top

We go again,

Last year I wrote a book, not many people know I have a book, but I told myself henceforth I will share it so whoever needs it can see it. I have a growing voice in fashion and much of my writing is not fashion related, obscure to me but that’s the world I live in and how my life is.

Melancholy Maelstrom, Available on All platforms

Here’s my first book, I want to say, this book is unlike any of my other works, born of pain an anguish of a failed system I hope to change. Nothing to do with fashion and more to do with real life. I wrote this book before all of the troubles of last year and how there’s a silver lining to everything. Once you see it, seize it capture it and Burst it Open so the light it brings shines on everyone in your space. That’s what this book is about

Last year my people were dying on the streets, there were so many points where I saw the pain and suffering reflected in the people in the work I produced. I decided not to share my work because my words in the moment meant more than the words I had written, even though it was months apart.

There were times when I was asked in the moment to make fashion videos, I had created a show that was unlike any before it and meant so much to the community who were exposed to it. My spirit really said I should not do no productions because people in the streets, me being in the streets was more important than fashion.

I am not for your consumption

Janelle Monet, via Taurus

There were moments that were necessary for others to escape that I could provide but it wasn’t in me to help people escape, I needed to live in the moment as a human just like everyone else and that needed to be respected because there were voices that I needed to listen to and I needed others to hear.

In America from Kobe and Pop Smoke, to Ahmaud Arbery, to the Lekki tollgate massacre 2020 did not let up I made the decision to live in it. Covid made sure we stewed in it, how could a man like me, raised by the people create an escape. I didn’t see it, if it was my job to do that I’m sorry.

My business took a hit because of and now I’m here again asking for peace, patience and guidance to work up again in the eyes of the people from this site and those that follow me.

My existence is not for your consumption, my work is. We are tied, but I was tired. I’m due to show up and show everyone again, why I am a creator you follow

We Go Again,

MAILING LIST

Since I’ve been around for a year or so now I have been thinking intently about all the years that has led up to this level that I’m on now. How much I’ve given other people and what I give to myself.

For years up until I started my website I dedicated myself to helping other people walk into their greatness. Is and always will be my calling, I have never really cared about me the type of money I make and the sacrifices I’ve made for others so long as they gave of them everything towards their greatness.

I never blamed any of them for their failure, they just wasn’t ready for the intensity it takes, with that though I noticed all the pitfalls in having to create the right measured for your success. I spoke about this in Talent, Execution and Elite Mentality, University of Self and Being an Elite Level Producer, these are all seeds to my understanding of what it takes.

What I learned from producing other people is no one is willing to make the sacrifices I’m willing to make for our mutual benefit. For years I toiled learned and failed, not in big ways but to the degree that people were too okay with ordinary successes and were not ready for the extraordinary success I would want to provide.

That was fine though. Massive success isn’t for everyone so I move on and leave people to their own devices. Then it dawned on me that no one I know really had a local example of massive success. People are drawn to it but don’t know what it looks like day to day and because of “instant success” people think it’s supposed to happen to them right away when in reality it’s a daily thing that you deliver on weekly monthly quarterly and so forth.

This example of excellence is very foreign and day to day the stacking effect isn’t exposed. For me right now this effect is on full display there’s so much that goes into every blog, article, essay, post that there happens to be no accidents. I’m not necessarily talking about the average everyday zeitgeist topics that are referenced day to day, but this is part of a mission now to expose what grand planning looks like day to day. It starts with OYOS and lives by it.

Everyday a new seed is planted more wood for the ship is cured and the foundation of excellence being built in front of their very eyes in hopes to inspire and expose what it takes. Not just in quality but in speed. In this day and age you need speed and quality but that only comes with high vision and high concept production and execution of proof of concept.

I will break these down further I just want to start with the laying of the field. Planting these understandings for the people that want and need them. It’s important for me to have them out there.

This is the Movement of my Dial

A Thought On: Mediocrity (Live in the middle pt.2) Perfect Level

We go again,

I find mediocrity a really big deal. Considering so many people live in it, exist in it court it and feel it. There just seems to be an understanding that mediocrity is okay. I’m so open to that idea it just sounds like bliss being okay with a normal life; Although the thought of normal isn’t becoming of me I still covet it like Odysseus.

I am incredibly okay with mediocrity, although I feel forced to live out of it and observe it knowing it can’t observe itself. Mediocrity Is my favourite thing on this planet. People who try new things happen to be mediocre at it, whenever you try something new the result is your mediocrity.

I don’t see it as people falling short of greatness I see it as people experimenting and experiencing life which is the flavour life offers. Like I said I am not allowed to live in mediocrity because I observe it. Like most Genii, Artists Mathematicians and Highly Ranked Religious folk.

Theres one place mediocrity is not allowed in art, Religion or mathematics. All the superior thinkers in buddhism, shamans science and Art all come to the one conclusion of Nirvana. We explore and traverse the world of thought telling people what we think as life goes on we all end up in the same place. No one after them listens and instead follows them, mostly because life is about the journey.  We all end up in the same place though, thousands of years worth of written texts all ending up in the same place. Its mystical.

I guess observable greatness is what makes mediocrity exist and vice versa. I never know when I am being great but people from time to time tell me I am. Such is life I seek the tranquility people chase the storm of Genius and Higher thought.
