Lots of hurting going on the the world these days. Good time for us all to do some spring cleaning inside so we can shine bright to light the way for love, forgiveness, and healing for all ❤️🐼❤️. This Spring Montage is my art and light to share with all to enjoy.
Quick review regarding the Iflight 2 inch, DC2 HD microquadcopter in action weighing in less than 250 grams.
We all have a special something inside of us. People of different cultures and religious backgrounds have a number of names for this. It is an unseen, mysterious energy that all life has. Some call it Chi, or one’s life force.
After working a full day, my wife and I decided to take a car ride to our local county park. Here in Michigan, with our current Covid-19 stay at home order, we are allowed to spend time in local parks as long as people maintain our set social distancing guidelines.
I love and miss my wife! With both of our jobs, working as first responders of one type or another with the Covid-19 crisis, our schedules changed so we don’t have a single day off together anymore. This month will mark almost 25 years of friendship. Times like this really make you dig deep inside, but it is the love you share with a special someone that makes it all worth something! Take care everyone 🐼✌️🤙
Needed to get outside my house will the stay at home order in place. Order restrictions allowed for visiting other property so I headed to the family farm for some Rest and Relaxation.
This simple visual distortion kind of represents for me the number of feelings my mind is processing during these pandemic days of isolation.
Only in great darkness can we see the light.
Keeping an active mind, blogging, channeling negative energy into other positive creative outlets and maintaining a self-care routine are the ways I have learned work best for me to keep my light shining.
I have included an example of the artwork in which I have channeled some of the negative emotions into something I enjoy. I hope you enjoy this as well.
What are some of your favorite coping strategies during difficult times?
Feel free to express and share in the comments.

I love sunny weather, but autumn and winter nights somehow ignite my internal romantic flame 🔥.
There is something beautiful about sharing a warm embrace on the darkest of nights.
Simple late night adventures in the city become magical if you find that special someone.
May everyone's days be bright and everyone's nights be filled with love in your heart.
The State Theater is a historic theater built in 1946 with a modern Art Deco design located in the city of Wayne, Michigan. One of the reasons I love the Detroit area is there are many hidden gems that since I was a child have been slowly renovated over the years. The State Theater is now owned by Phoenix Theaters. If you are in the Detroit area it is about a fifteen minute drive from the metropolitan airport. I highly recommend it as you feel the history and enjoy a cinematic experience that is not easy to find these days.
I did a few different edits and these were my favorites.
Which one do you like the most if any?

The Duality of Life and Death. ...
Duality teaches us that every aspect of life is created from a balanced interaction of opposite and competing forces. Yet these forces are not just opposites; they are complementary. They do not cancel out each other, they merely balance each other like the dual wings of a bird.
I struggle to maintain a balanced lifestyle like I am sure most of us do. Everyone walks their own path in life and in doing so I recommend if you haven't already found it to seek out your own ways to maintain a balanced lifestyle.
The closer I get to my own personal balance the more satisfied and happier I feel. It is a constant balancing act.
Family, Blogging, getting out in nature, droning, photo editing, creating, are ways I help balance my stressful day job as a social worker.
Please share in the comments some of your own ways you help maintain your balance.
I want to send a special shoutout to all my Pantastic PandaPals !!
Special thanks to everyone old and new that have visited Pandemedium!

Fall Inspired Tribute Celebrating my 555 post on Instagram 🌻😊🌻 Ford Motor Company does an excellent job investing in the city that has been its home since it originated. Located in a Dearborn, Michigan near the Ford Motor Company World Headquarters is a lovely field of hundreds of mature sunflowers. I wanted to snap a few pictures earlier last month, but couldn't find the time to do so. Even though most have started to return to the earth, I loved the mature sunflowers colors and fall vibes even more.
Happy Trails Everyone 🐼🌻
Wanted to try and create a something darker this month since Halloween will be here before we know it. I have to admit old cemeteries are quite fascinating to me. Walking the grounds springs forth a multitude of a variety feelings. Of course sadness is the most common, but also happiness.
Here is a stream of consciousness from my experience:
Dark, peace, rest, lovers, friends, warriors, sleeping, loss, grieving, empty, lingering, lost, pain, anger, sadness, good memories, moments in time, flickering, dust, earth, wind, memorial, rise, fall, leaves, rebirth.
Enjoy everyone 🐼
Really enjoyed my last adventure in Northern Michigan. This is one of the most beautiful sunsets I have seen in awhile. Higgins Lake is located in Roscommon, Michigan. It is one of my most favorite places to visit. The people are so very friendly, polite, and will talk to complete strangers like friends. Sometimes it is difficult for me to engage in these conversations initially as this just doesn't happen in the city. When I do force myself to suppress my city instincts in an effort to make small talk with the locals, I am always glad that I did.
Sometimes the most simple conversations are the most rewarding. It reminds me what it means to be human being. That we are all connected in this crazy amazing world. With the leaps we make in technology, it might be good for us to remember to make an effort to skip that ATM machine, put down that tablet, phone, and go outside of our comfort zones to engage others in conversation like my Northern friends do. It just make someone else's day a bit brighter. Everyone have a great week. ✌️🐼❤️

What is the Flow?
The brain can process roughly a maximum of 110 pieces of information per second. But what if we could play that information in our minds in slow motion? Studies performed by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, have helped us gain the first insights into this phenomena.
It's a comforting thought to know how powerful nature's brilliance can bring a variety of people together even if only for a moment.
