P IS FOR #PEOPLEPOWER 🖤 Me typing like a mad man while waiting in line today “PEOPLE POWER is all we have right now in these crazy times. So stand tall with fists raised to the sky and rise up for our communities, the environment and fairness for all; women, man and child! Let’s support the LGBTIQ community, the poor, the old, the weak, the sick and the mentally unstable. Let’s stand up for all minorities, refugees and especially for the indigenous people of this great Land! It’s us and them not us versus them, we are all in this together! Together we must let THEM know that we the people are here! We will stand up! We will not back down and our message will be heard!!!!!” A voice quietly calls for my attention “excuse... excuse me mate” “sorry yeah?” “Would you like bbq sauce with your chips?” “Ummm yeah yeah sweet thanks bro” “that’s $5 thanks” Gets chips raises first. The guy behind the counter awkwardly raises his fist back as I turn to leave the shop. From behind me he quietly says “power to the people” “Power to the People RIGHT ON!” #themchipsaye 😉 /// ✊🏾⚡️🖤 @36daysoftype #36daysoftype #36days_p #lalotoa #art #artist #samoa #samoan #samoanartist

O IS FOR #OCEANS 🖤 These are lyrics to a song about protecting all things ocean related.
🌊OCEANS 🌊
I've been searchin
while you were searchin for yourself
Now I'm learning
to rely on me and no one else
When I came down to the sea
There was an ocean there between us
So I ran to find help
When I came back home
baby you were gone
Where did you go?
🌊
Wo o You should've known by now
Wo o You should've known by now
You should've known by
you should've known by now
🌊
So I went sailing
on the oceans across the seven seas
Grew tired of waiting
So I buried your soul under this tree
If you go
don't go far
baby you don't wanna die lonely
If you stay
love yourself
baby you know you're the one and only
Where did you go?
🌊
Wo o You should've known by now
Wo o You should've known by now
You should've known by
you should've known by now
🌊
I
I don’t know baby
I don’t know where you run to?
where did you go?

M IS FOR #MIND 🖤 Do you ever think about all the so many crazy events where man has fucked up and changed the course of human history? Doesn’t it make you wonder where we’d be if certain moments never happened? Like imagine if Hitler focused on his art? or if the dude who shot MLK decided to go for a swim instead? Imagine John Howard let the Tampa into Australian waters? or if Americans actually laughed off Trump as a joke and not Presidential material? Think about all the important decisions we’ve made based on petty insecurities or getting back at people when it came to giving someone else an opportunity? the list goes on and on. I for one have been guilty of being a prisoner of my own mind from time to time. I guess you wouldn’t be human if you didn’t have negative thoughts. As cliche as it sounds, it really is ‘all in your mind’. A lot of the bad emotional shit we decide to drag ourselves through in life mostly comes directly from our thoughts. It’s abit challenging to admit to feeling insecure let alone writing it all down, but it’s also liberating to see your shit in front you, because eventually your positive thoughts can challenge your negative stereotypes and put them bad boys to bed (when they’re outside of your head). The mind is of course a mind-field, so whether we like it or not, we have to live with our minds and eventually learn to accept who we are. The trick is to be kind to your mind. Unfortunately from time to time you’ll feel insecure again, so maybe it’s a practice which needs perfecting. Bad thought in, then replace with good thought, then bad thought out. Boom! Boom! Positive introspection has its rewards. Just kick the negative shit to the curb and keep them positive thoughts rolling into your mind. /// ✌🏾⚡️🖤 @36daysoftype #36daysoftype #36days_m #lalotoa #art #artist #samoa #samoan #samoanartist

L IS FOR #LOVE 🖤 So many talented songwriters and artists have this natural magical ability when it comes to explaining love. Love has inspired nations, made children and brought so many human beings together. But to me, my mum is like the Samoan national symbol of love. If there was a Council she’d be the Chairman of Love. LOLs! Growing up this woman would stop on the streets to talk to some random stranger and by the time she was done, we’d end up buying that random stranger some food and drive them home. This was an everyday occurrence for my family which was kinda embarrassing when you’re a kid whose real passion was his Michael Jackson glove (a gardening glove you found in the backyard). I’m practicing important dance moves on the street and my mum is talking to random strangers!? Anyway my mum also had this poem, I originally thought it was just some random poem which she recited to me many times as a child. Google told me otherwise. Ummmm I think I did an ok job with picking most of it up throughout my life. But on the bigger picture, I still have to work on perfecting Love. I never thought I’d ever quote from the Bible. But here goes. Damn!
❤️
Love is patient
love is kind
It does not envy
it does not boast
it is not proud
It does not dishonor others
it is not self-seeking
it is not easily angered
it keeps no record of wrongs
Love does not delight in evil
but rejoices with the truth
It always protects
always trusts
always hopes
always perseveres

These handmade, handprinted 100% cotton drill table runners are now listed in my Etsy store! (please see link in bio)


Each food & plant image has been handcarved by me & individually handprinted with fabric screen ink that has been heat-fixed & set.
There's no set pattern which means that each runner is different & unique from eachother. •

Have a great week everyone 🌺

K IS FOR #KINDNESS 🖤 Being kind is pretty rad! Kids dig it and so do cats, dogs and all the other special beings. Apparently if you are a kind hearted person a whole bunch of crazy creatures catch a blue spaceship to the big K in the sky and everyone has a Party in the clouds to celebrate. Pretty cool aye! /// ✌🏾⚡️🖤 @36daysoftype #36daysoftype #36days_k #lalotoa #art #artist #samoa #samoan #samoanartist

J IS FOR #JONESTOWN 🖤 Do what you gotta do in life, BUT JUST DON’T JOIN A CULT! Google; Jonestown Massacre and get the low down on how #909 cult members were brainwashed into ending their lives on November 18 1978 by a charismatic psychopath by the name of Jim Jones (two survived). Life’s way too important to waste on one Religious nutcases blind vision of Utopia. /// 🙏🏾⚡️🖤 @36daysoftype #36daysoftype #36days_j #lalotoa #art #artist #samoa #samoan #samoanartist #jonestownmassacre #jimjones
