It is much easier to call oneself an environmentalist or an activist than it is to actually make some sort of sacrifice to reduce one’s carbon footprint or to declare and act upon one’s dissent about an important political or social issue.

Mind and body. Intentions and actions. Trying to live a life that brings these together is like an adventure with unexpected challenges and obstacles. And, even when things go right for us — they can still seem to go wrong.

If you are used to telling the story of never getting what you want, then actually getting what you want might be a lot more complicated that it might seem.

I am curious about your experiences in the SPARK BrooklynArts SAT, Community Service, and Gallery Clubs. What is it like for you to be working with adults on your academic goals, involved in the community, recognized as growing young adults and, of course, as the faboo artists that you are.

In a very short time, we have already seen and done some mind-blowing things and also made some amazing friends. It’s been exciting and different for me. What’s it been like for you? I’d like you sign in and add your comments below.

Okay, this is kind of a writing assignment (in case any of you were wondering), but I think your thoughts are important. Write them down. It’s the only way anyone will ever find them read them.

In the game of hide and seek, the objective is not to hide (as one might initially think).

Instead, isn’t the fun of the game to be found?

Don’t hide instead seek and let the world find you – maybe you’ll find something you’ve been looking for.

Peace

  1. WELL MR. O THE ARTIST AND PHOTOGRAPHERS ARE ALWAYS GENEROUS WHETHER THEY'RE GIVING OUT $80 BOOKS OR ACTUALLY LISTENING TO OUR OPINIONS !!!! THE HOSPITALITY AND KINDNESS MAKES ME WANNA LIVE IN THIS WORLD FOREVER …. NOTHING ELSE EXIST WHEN OUR TEAMS ON THE MOVE …….. – MOISE J

  2. as you know.. i am a part of both the community service club and gallery club and both have opened my mind to new perspectives. it has helped me value my capabilities and my potential to be force in the art world. to have local and international artist telling us that we could be what we want and that our opinion matters, give me that much more confidence and strength. this si just the beginning of a new life for me and the rest of my spark peers. WE WILL REVOLUTIONIZE AND EXPAND. no more hiding.

  3. Although I am not in the gallery club or the community service club i am in the Sparks program, Kaplan SAT class. And although the class is mind numbingly boring it can be fun. i learn a lot and it is just all around very helpful. i appreciate everything that my tutor brings to the table. the class is amazing i love it and will be fairly sad when its over. i recommend it to every kid that is goiing to take the SATs and needs some help. xD

  4. Wow Mr. O – that is deep.Yo that is really deep and this madd hard. i feel ya!This is Edwina. I am in the sat club, the commmunity service club and the gallery club. this school used to be whack and i guess it still is. but just not as whack as usual.
