Lessons from a baby

I’ve always been a person who tries to learn lessons from life around me. It’s probably years of Sunday school classes and trying to find the lesson in the Bible stories. I just started feeding my daughter, Portland solid foods. It’s been fun seeing her facial reactions to different vegetables and fruit. Her first reactionContinue reading “Lessons from a baby”

Preparation is Part of the Process

Sometimes it feels like the efforts we put into our personal work is useless and isn’t worth the time. If we were to calculate the hours we put into each project and see how much it’s costing us, it might cause us to give up. The only thing we know is that we love itContinue reading “Preparation is Part of the Process”

Youth or Reality?

I admit, I held on to my childhood as long as I could. It’s been a struggle allowing myself to growing up and now I have entered in the phase called aging. I still see myself as a young lady, although you have to be over 50 to refer to me as such. I often get theContinue reading “Youth or Reality?”

Random or a Master Plan

Its summer time and I haven’t blog in a few weeks. Life at work has been busy and this week I’ve been on vacation. I usually would take this opportunity to travel overseas but I am suffering from the student loan crises of my generation. Of course I am working hard to overcome but itsContinue reading “Random or a Master Plan”

Self Help Junkie

I’m on the verge of becoming a self help junkie. But fear not. I promised myself the next book I read will either be about production or a biography. During the Christmas holidays I found myself lazy, fat and exhausted from the previous months of work, life and goals setting. I came across this book,Continue reading “Self Help Junkie”

The Art of No

No one likes to hear the word no. For most babies nodding their heads no is the first sign of communication. We were born to say no, than why do we keep saying yes to everything? Why do we allow fancy advertising, popular opinion, and the crowd determine our decisions? We often think the wordContinue reading “The Art of No”

Give It Some Grace Space

A few weeks ago, when I was directing I said a phase that made me stop in my tracks. As I was teaching a new volunteer how to use the follow camera I told him, “the tighter you are in, the harder it is to follow. Why don’t you give yourself some grace space andContinue reading “Give It Some Grace Space”

Blog: I am the Painting

This morning I had an idea to paint. I never really painted before but thought why not try. I had some supplies I bought years ago but never used. I also wanted to try time lapsing, so I set up my camera and pointed it towards my work station. As I started painting, it began toContinue reading “Blog: I am the Painting”

Audio: Coffee with the Briano Sisters

Today I called for an emergency meeting with my sister. A few years ago, we would meet up once a week and have a bible study at a coffee shop. Since then my older sister started law school, my middle sister had two kids, and I became obsess with work. Siting there sharing coffee (weContinue reading “Audio: Coffee with the Briano Sisters”

Film: Learning how to walk

As I was cleaning my room, I was captured by a photo I took a few years ago. It was my first roll of film with an old SLR. I had asked my family to come outside as I tested the camera. It had been years since I taken any photos. I remember looking throughContinue reading “Film: Learning how to walk”

Being Still.. It’s not so easy.

It’s interesting how hard it is to be still. Even watching Jacob, my nephew, it was hard for him to stay in one spot. Today I woke up pretty stick. I slept most of the day but for a few hours when I was awake, my nephews were here visiting. Strange thing is that myContinue reading “Being Still.. It’s not so easy.”

What is Beautiful

I don’t think we realize or appreciate the real beauty behind us all. We live life so fast, we don’t take the time to notice how complex and unique we all are.  We believe what is beautiful is what we see in advertisement or films, but what we all fail to do is ask theContinue reading “What is Beautiful”

The Future of Possibilities

Today as I came in to the church office I saw a young man taking out the trash. I then pictured him as one of the young pastors of the church. I pictured him with his daughter in one arm, the bible in the next and his wife beside him. A man in his destiny.Continue reading “The Future of Possibilities”
