Tyler Teerlink everyone! (Swipe left to view the whole highlight!) We are greatly enjoying sharing with you the composers who have brought us such an amazing choral masterwork to honor the path to our country's independence. This work honors General George Washington and the journey of faith that led him to recognize the divine providence that guided his steps. It is a beautiful and moving message, and a perfect way to celebrate this patriotic time of year! Please join us for this very special and exclusive premiere. George Washington: Ordained of God will be presented June 27-29 at Waterford School in Sandy and July 3 at Abravanel Hall. 17 soloists, 2 narrators, a full orchestra and full choir will bring these events to life and directly into our hearts. We can't wait to share this unforgettable evening with you! Tickets at: draperphilharmonic.org or click the link in our profile! . . . . . . . .

You know what's so certain about being uncertain is? You know that the things will change. From bad to good to best. Beyond are those who work with intuitions, for nothing nurtures and grows their instincts better than uncertainties. And you know what's so certain about being uncertain is? It yields the best possible outcome. . Nishtha Trehan . . . . . . . .

We are getting closer Ladies and Gentlemen...I'm extremely nervous however pleased with the body of work that has been put together...I'll go out on a limb and say when you listen to it from beginning to end it'll trigger an emotion of some kind...make you laugh...think...wonder...empathize...even angry...perhaps make a Lady feel a "certain" type of way😏...more importantly create a visual...The purpose is for you to be able to SEE these stories happening in real life...If you haven't already check out my website

You can live a happy life, inside your perfectly square box. But imagine what you could do if you burst through the gates of societal norms and do thinks your own way and create your own path. At times when I feel stuck in life, stuck in those boxes... I imagine myself setting a bomb at the edge of those barriers. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

We don’t have much photos together, but happy Father’s Day dad 💙 thank you for everything you do, I know I’m not an easy kid to deal with. I love you so so much. From trips to Disney, gardening together, summer 2010, working together, going to the beach with me on my birthday, arguments and distance and love and acceptance, nostalgia will always keep these good memories close to my heart 💙 close or not anymore, I love you dearly 💙

SUCH an awesome spontaneous tattoo day!! Grabbed a design Seth (newest budding tattoo artist at Imperial Tattoos taught by @tylerbudimlija ) had up for grabs! Fun new piece for the collection! . I have always felt, and always will feel...a bit witchy. I know, had I existed in history that I would have been burned as a witch in trials...and I know...it is important we remember how far we have come in society.. that we should never allow history to repeat...we should all be able to speak our minds in love...and not be tortured for it. And so...my witch broom helps me feel rooted in history...and a bit more badass. Bam. . .

“We are here. This is what it means to swim in the tide, to walk the earth and feel it touch your feet. This is what it means to be alive.” ― Madeline Miller, Circe ______ I haven’t posted a lot this week bc ya girl just got a new job at a non-profit for the Arts so I’ve been busy typing (and trying not to ruin my eyesight) for 7 hours a day. But I’m definitely brainstorming some more photos so watch out 😎 Other than work, I’m also following up on something that’s been my New Year’s Resolution for 1000 years that I’ve never actually done, which is being health(ier) haha. Running/taking walks in the morning when the sun is still fresh before having a good bfast?? Life-changing tbh. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ______ QOTD: What are your summer plans? Are you working or just chilling? Taking a trip? Doing nothing? Stocking up on Ice Cream? Lemme know below! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ AOTD: I’m working and reading and writing. And eating lots of dark chocolate and caramel drumsticks bc being healthy doesn’t mean not eating sweets!! Gotta love summer, y’all.

Вуали шёлк и грусть на лицах, Не от того ли, вы в печали? Что жизнь свои вонзает спицы, И режет душу кромкой стали. Но вам к лицу печаль и тени, И бледен ваш овал лица, И вы, у осени на сцене, Разбили сердце мудреца! Вокруг магическое нечто, И рук слияние и осень. И эта время бесконечно, Пока не ляжет снега проседь. © Copyright: Андрей Басацкий, 2018

Had a great time celebrating 2nd Mother's Day with Joe today. Started with breakfast at McD's (his choice, not mine), then to the Liberty Science Center, to dinner (with Samantha & Tyler too), into pj's with our stuffed guys, and now we're just laughing hysterically at nothing at all. I'd say it was a day worth having

one year and six months after us.

UPDATE: So I haven’t been posting a lot lately, but I’ve been busy working on several projects. 1st, my first novel. I’ve been busy writing my debut novel. 2nd, a poetry book. In the meantime I will be inactive on all accounts, even my personal and my music. If I may ask a favor, if in my absence, can you share your favorite poems or post by me, I’d be eternally grateful. You’ll hear from me soon. Sincerely T. P. Halpin A Traveler’s Ghost. . . . . . . . .

Погиб поэт, его не стало, Разбилось сердце на куски, Вонзила смерть тугое жало, Сдавила боль его виски. Оставил нас на растерзанье, Толпе и присно с ней врагам, Исполнил долг свой и призванье, Раздал, что нужно по долгам. Погиб и что же, откровенно, Не будет песен и стихов, И вдохновений внутривенно, Друзей не будет и врагов. Пал оклеветанный толпою, С которой вместе пировал, Ходил на бой и с песней строем, Он, за отчизну воевал! Его любили однозначно, Читали нежно и любя, В штыки ли шли, Иль в бой кулачный, Клялись и верили в себя. Погиб поэт, чего же боле? Кому теперь писать и жить? Кому желать поэта доли? В кого – то верить и любить. Толпа ещё не разлюбила, Но сделав выбор, поняла, За что она его убила, За что, любила и ждала. За нежный взгляд, и миг разлуки, За всё, что было и прошло, За боль и тлен, за эти муки, За сердца нежного надлом. Поэту что, его не стало, Пал оклеветанный толпой, А ей всё так же, смерти мало, И грязных слов за упокой. © Copyright: Андрей Басацкий, 2018

«A MIS AMIGOS» Que te encuentres personas que te tiendan la mano cuando has caído y las piernas te fallan para continuar. Que te encuentres con personas que sepan tocarte y sanarte las heridas que escuecen de más. Que esas personas sean tus amigos y el día de mañana "hermanos" sea el término con que nos referimos. Es que existe tanta gente que conocemos y tan poca que nos permiten reconocer lo que desconocimos. Mostré mis cicatrices a mi amigo, él no salió corriendo, me dijo "aquí me quedo yo contigo". Que logre mirarte a lo ojos, y te diga con gozo: "sigue pa' lante, es que eres mucho para tan poco". Que tengas amigos que se vuelvan hermanos te vuelve afortunado. Recuerda que hay personas que nunca han logrado encajar y tú ya has encontrado con quién estar. ______________. Pensaba en todas esas personas que no creen en la amistad, pero sin lugar a dudas yo lo hago porque creo en el buen hombre ❤️ a mis amigos que me leen les escribo esto, ustedes saben quiénes son 😊🙌🏼
