Social media fast. See y'all April 16th.

⏳"After-Before"⌛️ New #memorial up for the #may20 #tornado. I really enjoy the symbolism used in the piece. From the choice of children, to the rebuilding tools, the bird poised to fly away, and lastly the two kids on the right side leaning over a blueprint of the city of #Moore.

🌳"reflect"🌳 Did a scavenger hunt thing the other day & it took you to the #okc #memorial for a somber reality check. Coincidentally, someone I knew visited a couple of days afterwards & shared personal experiences related to April 19, 1995.

🍟"Catsup"🌭 Here resides the worlds largest #ketchup bottle turned water tower.

🎭 "Sing It Out" 🎼

One from February's #liveontheplaza 🔥💯

🐺"WLFPCK"🔥 Small theaters make cool venues.

🌀"1.61803398875"🌀 AKA #thegoldenratio or as my buddy would say, "Sacred Geometry." 😎

🔼 "Towers of Powers" ⬆️ Besides the #glitche editing on the left side, this spot in #downtown #dallas is framed by the surrounding buildings when one simply looks up.

"The problem in all of these scenarios is that we need the horizon.  Something outside of ourselves that can tell us, without question, which way is up and which way is down.  Of course we need each other too.  But without a horizon, even the guidance of other people can be dangerous. Like a sloping shack on a slanted hill, we are all bent, tilted, fighting the gravitational distortion that surrounds us.  At the start of a new tour, and the beginning of a new year, I’m highly aware of my need for the horizon.  Daily.  I need constant course corrections or I’ll find myself standing at an angle without even realizing it.  I’m by no means an expert in this stuff, but I know that for me there are certain constants that point me towards the horizon: prayer, scripture, nature, caring for others, art that is beautiful and true, and the wisdom of others who have proven themselves as dependable guides.  I’m also aware of the things that spin me around: the opinions of others, social media, fear, doubt, self-reliance, pride.  The most noticeable difference to me between these two groups is this: the first group is all outward-focused, while the second group is focused entirely on myself.  When I’m focused inwardly on myself, I ALWAYS lose the plot.  People often ask us how they can pray for us.  Well here’s one: my prayer for this year is to spend more time staring at the true horizon Himself, and less time worrying about me." – Tim
