Look At Old.



80 year old, Jacquie Tajah Murdock,
a former Apollo Theater jazz dancer.


"This is Jacquie Tajah Murdock. She's a famous Apollo Theater jazz dancer. For her, 'Fashion is an art, especially high fashion. Someone told me that I would even look good in a potato sack. I don't know if that's true, but it's all about how you carry yourself. I love being active, and I think that is what keeps you young. Style is the way you present yourself.'" ~ anon

3 Looks at a Woman, by a man...


 A young man likes to look at women. We all do. It is normal. What he should judge is himself. There are three ways to look at women, and upon closer inspection more come to light upon the area we reason with, and new discoveries are made we need to judge about ourselves. When you are young older men need to fill in the blanks, and there are a lot of blanks! Silence, or fear of asking for assistance is normal, and expected, if surrounded by men, who are but a semblance of a man bereft of good counsel to hold onto.

It is the real men, deep in the study of their manhood, embraced by a humanity balancing the light and the dark, the strength and the weakness of character and balancing the two primary energies: female and male! This basic structure of humanity is fundamental to masculinity and the subsequent arousal initiation plunges immaturity into the processes of becoming a man in the deepest sense of the word.

Jenya in a special posture speaks to 'Within' as if one is made to be holy, be misunderstood, and felt!. . . It is an insight women bring to the 3rd eye of a man simmering with desire for a woman! - Gregory E. Woods, Keeper of Stories 1/16/18









Jenya. Perfection is an illusion we believe within. The body is another perfection we strive for, but in the context of a man looking at a woman, we have our ideals, and they are perfect, to us. - Dawn Wolf, Keeper of Stories 1/16/18
























Contemplation in a woman like Jenya seated here stirs arousal into a nest. One has to feed what needs feeding, and one has to feed one's inclinations, but with wisdom one has to have a better grasp upon reality. - Dawn Wolf, Keeper of Stories 1/16/18


Merge with what Matters.




Captivating is as potent as being captivated. Being aligned with captivating forces is similar to being alert enough to know what we need, how to live in agreement based relationships, and how to enjoy the fundamentals of Life. In a glance, one senses these things, but articulating them is another skill, living this way is learned.

All of that perceived in a look. - Gregory E. Woods, Keeper of Stories 12/6/17 




Looking at one's self in one dimension is 'en vogue', but what is irreparable is belief in it as one who is in depth!... - Gregory E. Woods, Keeper of Stories














Extraordinary art work.


"Extraordinary art work sounds against the backdrop of reason in the form of body art. What do we do with the urge to create? We express, we create." - Gregory E. Woods, Keeper of Stories 12/7/17
