MOTHER”S

hmm… I don’t know how to begin with this article. well, here goes, I grew up in a barrio haven’t I told you. As my growing years I’ve been influences by my mother who is an artist by heart and by profession. involve here work but sad to say because of her profession as an artist she spend most of her time doing her artworks. I never understood her until I got married. but still up to now I haven’t got the chance to experience the real essence of being a woman. but, I’ve experienced being a mother. don’t get confused, I am the eldest amongst 8 siblings, and to tell you honestly it’s not easy dealing with my situation. I do all that a mother should do for their off springs. I cook,wash dishes, bath, take them to bed, even sleep with the youngest whenever my mom is not around.I also take care of school matters and everything concerning my sisters. I lucky coz my hubby is very understanding. My dad tangled up in his work as a dentist. If you’re wondering why In this age of mine I should have gone to work to and start my life with my hubby. well I am but I still can’t turn away from my family, I wouldn’t want my siblings experience the same fortune I experienced. All my life I’ve been craving for attention. But now I realize why my mom was like that. Now I understand her , she maybe not that affectionate in terms of house hold chores but still she still strives hard to give us a better future ahead of us… and best part is that i can still act as her daughter. I miss my siblings and most especially my Mother. I love you mom. ALWAYS YOU

A story to tell

I just watched this movie about a cursed Ba gua and it really creeped me out. we have a very very old ba gua at our ancestral house in the province.  As my memory serves me, my Lola (grandmother) told me it was a wedding present. Its brings good luck and prosperity to the family. maybe, I just think so. but they say that you shouldnt buy a ba gua for your house it must be given to you coz that’s the only way to release the chi (Qi) and help the(yin yang) forces of balance in the house.

TRY FUNG SHUI

I dint finnish my schooling at PSID but I definitely learned a lot as trough my schooling there. I remember we started lecturing about feng Shui . I suddenly got interested. since my family is into interiors, glass etching and aluminum and stainless designing. We (mom and I) always consider feng shui in doing our designs.

HISTORY OF DESIGN


Design history is the study of objects of design in their historical and stylistic contexts.

With a broad definition, the contexts of design history include the social, the cultural, the economic, the political, the technical and the aesthetic. Design history has as its objects of study all designed objects including those of fashion, crafts, interiors, textiles, graphic design, industrial design and product design.

Design history has had to incorporate criticism of the ‘heroic’ structure of its discipline, in response to the establishment of material culture, much as art history has had to respond to visual culture, (although visual culture has been able to broaden the subject area of art history through the incorporation of the televisual, film and new media). Design history has done this by shifting its focus towards the acts of production and consumption.

A FIRST TIME

I remember what my mom said that “nobody is born who knows everything”.  coz at times I become so neglectful of thing when ever my lazybones strike me, that when I say I don’t know. all of experience a first time. the fist time I learn our fist word,my first step, my first rise and my first fall.. if you’re wondering why about this FIRSTS? well am now 26 yrs old and at these age of mine for the First time in my life will exercise my right to vote! and as a first time voter I had to always have a bird’s-eye view on everything that’s happening in my beloved country the Philippines.  I always envy other country coz their officials are truthfully and  religiously doing their best to promote and present their country to the world with the best interests of their country men. that’s what I dream for my Philippines.  now the BIG question is? How’s worthy of leading OUR country? Does the next leader came  from a poor family and worked his way up to be rich? or should he be the product of the reason of our democracy? or a Harvard graduate perhaps? how about someone who promotes our country in terms of tourism ? an oust former president but has a heart for the little people(masa)? another lady president again? of a prophet of this time? or someone who only experienced being a councilor in a city?

it is an important start: by electing as many progressive candidates as possible, the chance of having more reforms and changes in our politics becomes greater.

here are some tips on how to choose a suitable candidate: (for me)

1 know what is your problem. remember that officials are supposed to represent you and the people. List down some concerns you strongly feel about like education, employment,ect.

2 Know the solution to that  problem.Knowing what issues the candidates should champion, we should also have a sense on how they should propose to solve or handle issues.

3 Who are these candidates? background check!!!There are many possible sources of background information on the candidates, if the candidate is a re-electionist, then get a copy of the candidate’s voting record. This would tell us how they decided on certain issues. Obtain a list of the bills that he or she supported or voted against, his or her project and programs, and get a copy of his or her statement of assets and liabilities to see his or her financial or business interests. If a candidate is not an incumbent, then get a copy of his or her platform and position papers. Be attentive to the media reports on the candidate. If worse comes to worse, then brave the candidate’s campaign sortie, where sometimes voters can get a chance to talk to the candidate directly.Look into leadership skills of the candidate. Does he or she accept invitations to debates or does he or she have the patience to listen to the voters? Are his or her campaign materials accurate?

4 Evaluate materials that you have obtained to have a more discerning and critical assessment of the candidate.

5 Birt out what you think.Talk to your friends or to your family about your impressions of the candidate. This helps broaden our perspectives on the issues that we care about and may even help us obtain more information and data for our political decisions.

6 Decide nor or wait for another 4 years.Review your data and compare the candidates, ask yourself who among the candidates champion the issues you feel strongly about. Check, who is doing his or her campaign fair and square. Then choose the candidate that you will vote for.

Now after doing all the nessessary, the most important thing to do is pray to our creator to guide and bless that person to lead according to his will.

WORLD OF ART

Art is the process or product of deliberately arranging elements in a way that appeals to the senses or emotions. It encompasses a diverse range of human activities, creations, and modes of expression, including music, litrature, film, sculpture, and paintings. The meaning of art is explored in a branch of philosophy known as aesthetics.

The definition and evaluation of art has become especially problematic since the early 20th century. Richard Wollheim distinguishes three approaches: the realist,whereby aesthetic quality is an absolute value independent of any human view; the objectivist, whereby it is also an absolute value, but is dependent on general human experience; and therelativist position, whereby it is not an absolute value, but depends on, and varies with, the human experience of different humans.

An object may be characterized by the intentions, or lack thereof, of its creator, regardless of its apparent purpose. A cup, which ostensibly can be used as a container, may be considered art if intended solely as an ornament, while a painting may be deemed craft if mass-produced.

Traditionally, the term art was used to refer to any skill or mastery. This conception changed during the romantic period, when art came to be seen as “a special faculty of the human mind to be classified with religion and science”. Generally, art is made with the intention of stimulating thoughts and emotions.

The nature of art has been described as “one of the most elusive of the traditional problems of human culture”. It has been defined as a vehicle for the expression or communication of emotions and ideas, a means for exploring and appreciatingformal elements for their own sake, and as mimesis or representation.Art as a use of indirect means to communicate from one person to anothr. Advanced the idealists view that art expresses emotions, and that the work of art therefore essentially exists in the mind of the creator.The theory of art as form has its roots in the philosophy  was developed in the early twentieth century. Art as mimesis or representation has deep roots in the philosophy . More recently, thinkers have interpreted art as the means by which a community develops for itself a medium for self-expression and interpretation.
