When We Rise Review.

I know that I am late to the game on When We Rise on ABC, but I have just finished watching it on demand.  I would say if you have not watched it, it is a must watch.  The series is very well put together, and it gets you wrapped up in it from the very start, and you will want to binge watch the whole series in one sitting, This the cinematography in this series is first rate, and the use of music helps to increase the emotional impact of this series, I have to admit that I teared up multiple times through out the series, as you get so deeply engrossed in what is going on that emotionally you wined up placing yourself into what is going on.  While I wish that they had put in a few more things in the gay rights movement it really dose a very thorough job of showing the fight for equality.  More after the jump.

It is also important to support series and productions like this so that producers, TV stations and movie studios will produce more such series and movies that chronicle the gay community.  If serieses like this don't do well or movies don't do well at the box office they are less likely to produce them, as no matter how much they want to tell the stories they still have to make commercial since as they are businesses that need to make money in order keep the lights on and the investors happy.  So as a community and as allies it is vital important that we support these productions, and this one is definitely one to get behind as it is such a good one.

I think that if we get behind this one we can show that if you have good production values and quality representation you can be successful in creating content that features gay content.  I hope that some of you that have been on the fence about this will jump in with both feet as it is definitely worth the time, and I think that you will be glad that you did. I also think that it is important for those that have seen it to use social media platforms to share with others how good the series is and to entice them into watching it as well.

When The Wheels Come Flying Off The High

So how do you get to the point where the wheels are flying off the your manic high, especially when you are supposedly supposed to be educated on your disorder.  For me that is at once a complicated and in ways a simple question.  It is complicated because there are so many warning signs to be missed or to be shoved under the rug, and yet so simple because it is rooted in the fact that your brain is saying that everything is fine and there is nothing to worry about, when in fact if you value your mental stability and balance, like I do, there is very much to be worried about.  This is not just so abstract question that I ponder in my mind like an artifact displayed in a case at a museum, it is something that is a very real part of my life and something that I am living through at this very moment. 

Start The Journey

Life is something that one truly has no choice but to take part in, but life can also be an adventure if one chooses to make it one . 

Lesson Learned the Hard Way

I have a lesson that I have learned the hard way, I learned it with the loss of 12 years worth of my photography, with the only surviving work being the limited amount that I had curated and shared on my recently started Flickr page.  12 years worth of passion and work that I can never get back, and
