The Audacity

“When you’re a kid, you color with reckless abandon. You color outside the lines. You color however you feel. Blue elephants, purple trees, red bears, green oceans — it’s all good.

As you get older, though, everyone tells you to stay inside the lines, to color everything just how you see it. You end up painting by numbers — whether you actually paint or whether you write or sing or dance or direct.

I think you should create what you feel. Create outside the lines. I want to watch green oceans and red bears. I’d love to listen to purple trees. And I long to read blue elephants.”

Masterly Love

There is a quote by Vincent Van Gogh that reads, “There is nothing more truly artistic than to love people.” Is this because love is an art to be mastered? Have you studied the intricacies of what it truly means to love another? Have you explored your parameters of self love? What qualifies as art?

Maybe art is born when you treat someone with kindness. Suppose art dwells in the space between two smiles. Perhaps art breathes in the rhythm of a beating heart.

Art is how you interact with others, when you are able to make someone feel something deep within. It’s the way you radiate with the love you have for yourself. It is the foundation for all that is sensational.

An oil painting is only art when the strokes reflect the passion of one’s soul. Fashion is only art when the design showcases a vision of beauty. Poetry is only art when the words ripple into the depths of the reader.

If you want to create art, then fully live each moment as your truest self. Act out of love when engaging company. Show up and show out at every opportunity that winks at you.

This is how you become a walking masterpiece.

PS. Speaking of art, I think it’s fitting to spotlight a couple qualities of mine…

For starters, my book, “Fashion Speaks,” is one of the visionary ways I teach how to use clothing as a medium of self-expression. You may get your copy by clicking the picture below.

Take Note

“Let’s dance in the perfection of our own immaculate glory.” – Matt Kahn

I am a sultry saxophone performing the song of my soul to those who dare to listen.

I am a passionate tango vibing to energies unborn.

I am a melodious violin expressing courageous love.

I am a bold tune speaking directly to the nucleus of existence.

I am an ocean storm of light eloquently setting the room ablaze.

Fire has never felt so crisp.

Breathing has never felt so alive.

My walk is a strut to the rhythm of my highest note.

My eyes are an open invitation to see life as an abundance of divinity.

My exquisite language inspires alignment to a grander frequency.

My intensity flows freely and cheekily.

My relaxed confidence and authenticity turns heads.

It’s alright to stare.

I’m a jazzy harmony playing with poetry.

With me, elegance is sensual and conversations are juicy.

I am aware that my presence is penetrating.

My symphony is commanding.

And this music only elevates in potency.

Shall you join me in a dance?

Just To Be Close To You

I honor you because you are someone’s prayer, someone’s teacher, and someone’s heart.

I respect you because you are a miracle in human form and divinity clothed in consciousness.

I admire you because you are a story that inspires beauty and a poem that breathes life.

I love you because at the crux of your soul, you are a light that is a sight behold.

How deep, full and vast is your love for yourself?

The Way I See It

What do you love about life?

For me, it’s buying a waffle cone stuffed with locally made ice cream on a hot summer day.

It’s saluting a man making caramel-covered apples and passing by smiling sailors as I walk to the harbor. Seeing a dog jump out of a boat and watching newly weds pose for the perfect shot.

Playing frisbee in the street, and at one point, tossing the disc to a landscaper passing by.

Spontaneous photoshoots in the pouring rain.

Sparking a light-hearted conversation with a person unknown.

Deep talks in a parked car, sipping on coffee and feeling the crisp breeze through the open window.

Snuggling up to someone when I’m outside walking in the cold.

Laughs that could be considered an abdominal workout.

Putting together a striking outfit.

We often dwell on the icky parts of life, the parts we wish we could rewrite or forget. But if you look closely enough, you’ll find beauty and love in more moments than you once gave credit for. And one day, you’ll realize that all you can think about are the wonderful experiences you’ve had. I think we should all emphasize the happy moments in life, the parts during each day that were purely enjoyable, the times where magic revealed itself.

Because the way I see it, these are the moments to remember.
