today i passed out one sweat shirt at malcolmx rd sout east and 7th st south east near that homeless shelter , i got a picture but am still having trouble putting my pictures up, i now got over 30 pictures of the last week that i want to put up , i have learned alot about these homeless people in just these 20 days i have a few people that i have helped 0ut a few times , i know that all of them may not be homeless some are out there because they are addicts some are even out there just to make money cause they can make a days earning standing at busy intersections daily , but i am not here to judge so i am seeing the ones who really appreciate the help and are truly tryn to find a way to better themselves just cant , i know cause i am out here daily and can see them at the same corners and so on , i can see the ones who respect the people around that dont help out and help out and the ones that make rude comments jsut cause someone wont give them money or even harrass people as they walk by thinking that people owe it to them , but neways i know that with out seeing proof that some may think that it is not true or that i am making this up , and i apologize if this is how i am coming out to you but i got pictures of those who let me and i want to keep faith in those people that believe , because i will get these pictures up ,
i wanna let you know that just till about 5 days ago i didnt tell anyone what i was doin not even my family because i didnt want them to discourage me , and i still have not told anyone else like my friends and coworkers either ,i hope that they will find out from hearing about it through others cause its not about who is doin what , but why , and i want others to think about why , this is just a beginin piece to an even bigger picture that i am creating and those ideas , thoughts , imagination , aspirations , and beliefs will stay silent so that one day when others see what i am creating they can look back and see where it all began ,
i am bout to start reaching 0ut to those who have viewed my blog cause i got like 650 views so i know someone out there is seeing this to help me on a new project im about to start ,
it is called FALLEN , From..All..Lifes..Lessons..Endure..Now
im goin to need just a few ideas of questions , because we can not find the right answers to anything if we dont ask the right questions , and i do not have all the right questions , so i need help to find the right answers ill better explain this when i put it up and start it up till then
tomorrow is another day ,
those who have commented have encouraged me and inspired me to keep goin thank you it means more than i could say in words , because it is not easy to put my thoughts and ideas up and go up to these homeless people and offer a hand , especially asking to take a picture so that others that may not be able to see these things for themselves in real time can get an idea , thank you because i do check up on this for maybe an idea from someone time to time and to put my progress up so that others can see

Default day 23 , march 13 , 2010

I'm sorry for not fullfilling my project to the best of my abilitys . I have still been out here 6 days a week and have passed out waters and fruits here and there . And even buyin little grocieries for few when I could help , the truth is that this is harder than I thought it was goin to be and circumstances changin . Like financially , but lately I've been thinking of what more I could do to spread the concept or idea . I know there are about 50 pictures that I never got posted that I havnt forgotten about .
so I took all of my pictures and made thumbnails to form a collage and made a picture out of this collage that I am working on putting onto a shirt . I have bought 40 shirts so that I can pass out this to those on the streets so that I can spread my thoughts . In hopes to bring them right back to this very comunity service project and help me spread a concept .
I took my thumbnails and made them black and white and filled color in to form a picture of the world with the word aspire0085 over the world where the I is a drop of light falling into the world causing a ripple sayin at the bottom no matter how small a deed maybe there's no limit to what you can inspire in others . There's a little more detail but just to give you an idea on what I have been workin on so soon I will hit the streets with these but in the meant time I will start back up passin bags out by the end of this week and continur my project . Ijust because I havnt posted veanythin doesn't mean I have given up . The way the world is . I won't give up tryin to strive for positivity

today i passed out 9 bags , i filled each bag with an apple , water, and a gronala bar , i passed out 5 and the intersection of lynn st and lee highway arlington va , i got 2 pic and one group pic, i passed out 1 on mst nw dc and 28th st nw dc , 1 at 29th st and mst nw dc , 1 at 30 thst and mst nw dc 1 pic , 1 at thomas jefferson st and mst nw dc 1 pic , ive been seeing alot of the same people over and over and now they greet me , im still having trouble putting up my pictures but i was able to scan all my pics frome earlier , no new ones are in this
there are over 80 thumbnail pics that are seperate good deeds , i made it into a colloage the first scan is the pictures all on one sheet , and the second is the collage , it may be hard to see through what i scanned,
it is a background of black and white and then color filled in to make the world and aspire, there are ripples of black and white through the world if u look close u can see it , i did it all to still perserve every picture were none of the pictures were intentionally cut short, it is not perfect but it is my first and i tried my best with what i had and thats what the concept of the shirt is , so i am planning on keepin it like this ,

if u see it or read this i wanna know what u think about the colloage should i improve it and make it perfect or let it go the way i made it. just like how "true beauty is not what u see , but what we can be "

here are alot of pictures i was never able to show u before but all together ,, i am still working on improving all , and i have 40 shirts that im bout to print this colloage on with a few added and a back to the shirt that i couldnt scan yet but , i plan on passing these shirts out soon , for the homeless , and to spread the concept with art and poetry , ive got so many ideas that i want to get out for the people that are in need , thats not just the homeless this is just were iam starting , like young single mothers , and adolescent teens that could use a little guidence , well that was just a little insight , all to give back" inspire one to inspire another "
tomorrow is another day
