This is a portrait of Spalding Gray, one of those artists able to make beauty out of pain, and I found both his beauty and his pain to be personal and profound. I first met him through the Talking Heads film "Stop Making Sense," and then became familiar with his staged monologs. His style of storytelling was direct and honest, his mode of being was unique, and in hindsight, I think inspiring to me.
The ability to create something beautiful from pain has helped keep me alive, in literal and metaphorical terms. Regardless of what our art is, it comes from a pure place inside us. It is a part of our essential truth, and we are servants to our truths. It doesn't matter what others think of what we offer. It doesn't matter if few people ever see what we create or which gallery walls share us. It only matters that we follow the desire to make these things we're compelled to make, that we access our truth and live it the best we can in each moment. Recognition and success pale in comparison. This is the only moment we have to be here with each other, and I am compelled to create. There is little else that satisfies me. I just want to use my time #broadcastinglove .

Buenas noches. Llevo todo el día tirado, entre el sofá y la cama, con un dolor terrible de cabeza, oído, garganta, dientes y flemón incluido, todo ocasionado por lo mal que he cuidado a mis dientes. Hay momentos de dolor, momentos de relax, momentos de mucho dolor, momentos de hacer el tonto con el móvil y la PS4, momentos de querer quitarse uno a uno los dientes de la boca, momentos en los que uno tiene mucha hambre, momentos en los que puedes hablar y momentos en los que no puedes abrir nada la boca.
Todo muy divertido.
I remember one day at school in grade 6 I wore a jean skirt feeling not too bad about myself that day....the boy I had a bit of a crush on came up to me smiling. I was excited and nervous. Then he started laughing and pointing at me motioning for others to come and see... come and look and laugh at the “fat cow with braces”. I was devastated and mortified. Others laughed and joined in...no one stood up for me...not even myself. Thru the next few years more names, more self hatred developed. But one day when we were made to do an improv skit ( great more embarrassment), I made people laugh...not at me but with me this time. This is when I learned humour can help me and it feels so much better to make others laugh. I’m super sarcastic to this day and enjoy laughing with people, laughter heals..... so does exercise.... every day I feel stronger and actually appreciate the pain I went thru or I may not be on the path I’m on. So, what are you waiting for???
Sometimes it's very hard to control our emotions.
Since the last week of December, im passing through a very painful stage of my live. Because of that reasons, sometimes im not so creative, or the 100% of my potential.
I know it's normal to feel like that. But some days it's hard for me to keep on guard, and pain hits me very strong.
I hope i get better one day
2012-2018. I’ve been through the worst. I’ve done my best. I’ve dealt with issues not every person could even fathom. I’ve kept my head held high. I’ve broken down low. Ive shed many tears. I’ve laughed harder than ever. I work. I play. I’ve been hurt. Misunderstood. Broken. Beaten. I’ve been addicted I’ve overcame. All I can say is no matter where I am at now or where I have been, I am so proud of the person I’ve become and I give myself credit for making it through these hardships throughout the years without killing my self. One step at a time. Take it day by day. No matter how much it hurts , I’m still here and I’m not going anywhere. #strengthnoweakness#onedayatatime#faith#love#pain#blessed 🤙🏻❤️💪🏻🖤👍🏻
Have you tried ELDOA? @joerogan Had a podcast about it. I just got my certification! ELDOA’s consist of very precise postures which target relief in a specific articulation. It is very effective with body pain.

HOW TWISTED HIPS CAN MESS UP YOUR LOW BACK!!! [anterior/posterior pelvic tilt]
👨🏻🏫Generally when we talk about anterior pelvic tilt, we mean that both hips are tilted forward. But what happens if only ONE of your hips is anteriorly tilted, and the other was posteriorly tilted?🤔
This opposite tilt situation can happen if you have a leg that's structurally or functionally shorter than the other
Basically if you have a right pronated (functional) OR a right shorter leg (structural), it will cause your right hip to anterior tilt and your left hip to posterior tilt, which will then cause your pelvis to rotate left and your lumbar spine will counter-rotate right to compensate 👉🏼say hello to SACRAL TORSION aka your lower back ends up all twisted aka PAIN PAIN PAIN 💥😵🤕
One problem such as a pronated foot or shorter leg can send a cascade of compensations throughout the body, and then you end up with muscles throwing themselves into imbalance in order to hold everything together so you don't collapse!!
(Note: the reverse is also possible - the anteriorly rotated hip could be driving the pronation)
The diagram shows the compensation patterns in the right leg .
🔵-glute medius and TFL - short+tight
🔴-adductors and QL - long+weak
As you can see fixing tilts can be quite a puzzle, because the variations are infinite...and I didn't even throw in the possibility of you being side bent in the frontal plane 😩 lol (ie.your hips swaying out to one side)
