Norsemen

This video ‘Norsemen’ is a comedy but it should inspire more for writing the second writing prompt, mystery.

Accept Everything.

Listen
Seein’ you got ritualistic
Plans in my soul of addiction for now
‘Cause I’m fallin’ apart, yeah
Tension
Between us just like picket fences
You got issues that I won’t mention for now
‘Cause we’re fallin’ apart
Passionate from miles away
Passive with the things you say
Passin’ up on my old ways
I can’t blame you no, no
Passionate from miles away
Passive with the things you say
Passin’ up on my old ways
I can’t blame you no, no
Listen
Hard at buildin’ trust from a distance
I think we should rule out commitment for now
‘Cause we’re fallin’ apart
Leavin’
You’re just doin’ that to get even
Don’t pick up the pieces, just leave it for now
They keep fallin’ apart
Passionate from miles away
Passive with the things you say
Passin’ up on my old ways
I can’t blame you no, no
Passionate from miles away
Passive with the things you say
Passin’ up on my old ways
I can’t blame you no, no
Trying to think of the right thing to say

This song’s title is ‘Passionfruit’. I wonder why Drake or Aubrey Graham or the other two songwriters Nana and Noah agree with using this. Not that I object or anything. I’m just wondering. I liked that the song is catchy and I like the beats. It is also pretty straightforward. Somehow as I listen, I feel it has a deeper historical context to it. Like about a long distance relationship. Some trust issues.

At times, being together not miles apart also need to build trust. It can be by being best of friends. Or by revealing your past. No matter what happens, always tell the truth and hide nothing. Talk through with a positive mind and always demonstrate acceptance instead of rejection. Accept EVERYTHING  Рabout him.

We must accept finite disappointment but never lose infinite hope. Martin Luther King, Jr.

My Eye

This is my eye.

I have been into painting recently. Something that amazed me is how much I enjoy painting eyes. Today, I gave a go for the first time for painting my own eye. This is my right eye. My heritage is Chinese.

My grandmother travelled by a ship to Southeast Asia, from China, ChaoZhou. So you got it right, I am Teochew. I could speak Teochew and Hokkien. I could understand Teochew, Hokkien & Cantonese. My first language is English, my mother tongue is Mandarin Chinese.

This I should say is a second Asian eye painting I have ever done. The first is here.

I find that painting the asian eye is more difficult than the caucasian eyes. Despite asian eyes have less creases, the asian eyes has more smooth surfaces like the eyelids are single, or even double eyelids are flat single stroke of white paint to achieve its shine (or presence of light as a contrast). The ‘play’ of shadow is more to make it look realistic. And since my pupils are dark brown that is closed to black, it is actually easier than the Caucasian eyes. Especially those with hazel eyes, there are more details and definitions within the pupil itself.

What do you think of this ‘eye’? Do you like it?
