Symphony of the Soul by the talented Jessilyn Park

This post is for a friend who I have never met in person but truly feel a connection with her through her beautiful art.  Please enjoy and share!

Symphony of the Soul 

About Jessilyn Park:
I’m passionate about many things in life. I love to read, write, travel, go to plays, musicals, concerts…just enjoy life. I find beauty in the small things. I am a firm advocate of Paying It Forward and somehow, through my writings, art, or actions, I want to be able to say, “I make a difference”. – Even if ever minute. I feel like I have an old soul but am young at heart. I consider myself a huge nerd and am an avid gamer (ISO epic IRL moments). I love the game Clue, to go to comedy clubs, I enjoy bread pudding entirely way too much, and I have a thing for Andy Griffith as Matlock aka "The Silver Fox."

I recently picked up a paintbrush for the first time in my life and discovered a whole new world; a world brimming with imagination, creativity, freedom, expressionism, and vivacity. I've always been creative in a way, but never artistic. This talent is completely new to me and each time I produce a peice I amaze myself more and more. I believe that somehow, someway, this talent was passed down to me from my grandmother the last time I visited her. She was a great painter but went blind and could never paint again, which broke her heart. I've never felt so passionate about anything. In March, despite everyone telling me how dangerous it was, I flew to Mexico...alone. I stayed a week there and trained with the world renowned Leonid Afremov. 

I’m also a freelance writer and website designer. I love weaving stories together with words. It’s like letting people into your mind without ever speaking to them. I write about all kinds of topics; from relationships, to issues in society, to technology. 

On top of my passions, a girl’s gotta make a living. I work full time for a communications firm in Orlando, Florida and attend the University of Central Florida College of Graduate Studies studying Mass Media Communication.

Being new to the area, I’m looking to network with like-minded individuals; people who have the drive and hunger for success as well as a passion to make difference. I am particularly interested in the following connections – mass media or social media marketing, publishers, public speaking opportunities, creative design and/or copywriting opportunities, ad/pr, fellow artists, art galleries, museum opportunities & art shows. 

Thank you for visiting and for your continued appreciation and support.

Moonlight through the tree...

Moonlight, trees what a beautiful breeze.... Enjoy!

This tree is in my yard and it is half dead, the association wanted me to cut it down they said it is an eye sore.  I think this tree is so awesome and refuse to chop it down.  With the moonlight shining through it I jut had to grab my camera and start snapping photo's the colors were so cool with different angels.  I just wish the clouds showed up more because they were purple and orange.

Strange looking beast half gator half fish

Ha ha this is awesome!  I couldnt believe what i coughton my hook.  At first glance I thought it was a baby gator.  Then I looked and saw it was a FISH!  Wow what bigteeth he has and I swear he was at least 20lbs lol.  So this is the cross breeding in florida ponds lmao.  Being serious now lol this is a gar fish.  Some people say they taste good some people say they taste like dirt.  Reason they may tast like dirt is they are bottom feeders eating all the nasty grimy crud lol.  I threw him back I cannot kill any fish I catch just to nasty.  I love fish but it ha to be already cleaned.  Enjoy, more to come.  Please let me know if you have ever eaten gar or caught them yourself.  Would love to hear about your experience.
