Art & Photography by PasjrWoctx©
To whom it may concern,
I am writing to inform you of a struggling artist. A 36 year old man that struggles with Bi-Polar, and other mental disorders. After being on his own since the age of 14 more or less. Working hard always taking great pride in what he did. Was forced out of the work force around the age of 25-26 for various reasons. After taking a year or two to try and adjust, regroup and move on with life. I was directed by my doctors and legal counsel to seek SSDI disability. As life had proven to much to maintain a normal life. After a few years, I have pursued my passion in life. Photography. More that just an art from, for me it is therapy. I have been searching and working very hard at building a life around it. Only to find, I have no resources to do so. No programs to help someone like me to venture into owing my own business that will allow me to provide for myself. As well allow me to work on my own schedule. I am desperately seeking help to obtain start up and working capital. With little to no friends, and no family. I have no one to reach out to, as well my social media accounts, do not have enough followers to get my work out.
Well you think about that, how about you Ignite my passion to burn a lifetime. Yes I am serious. You see, I have a burning desire to succeed in life. At 36 years old, I have come to the understanding or more so the acceptance that I have mad mistakes in my own life. Many of which will follow me till the end of time. Others already have passed. All have and will continue to teach me lessons, that will enable me to grow as a person.
If you have every visited my site before welcome back, if this is your first time. Check it all out. Yep its a little messy, lots of reading and creativity everywhere.
The base’s of my site is to display my talent, my thoughts and my dreams. However there is so much more than just that. As you read through my blog, and check out my work. One thing is certain, I will continue to grow. I will continue to pursue my goals and dreams.
It may happen today, or it may take a lifetime. But it will happen. What will happen? My work and vision will be shared with the world. You see so many people today are labelled as disabled. But what does that really mean any more? In a point in time when it is common practice to sit idle waiting for someone else to provide. I stand alone. I stand tall. I will provide for my self. Currently I am on disability. Not crazy about it. First it does not afford any kind of life, second it only enforces the negative in life. Instead we should be highlighting the positive.
For me my talent, and passion for photography highlights what I can do. The interaction between people, life and the environment in which we live. Honestly, with out my lens in front of me, I am terrible to be around. My camera opens up the world for me, allows me to be myself. It gives me pride and accomplishment when I am able to capture and create a master piece.
As I could write for hours, I will keep this brief. I need your support, your support in order to actually get my footing. To be able to create a life and life style that will enable me to shed the label of disabled. To give me the chance to support my self. I have 3 goals, the first, $25,000.00 will cover the basics and get the ball rolling. The second is $150,000.00 which will cover all the legal, heavy gear, location, and the security to operate for 2 years to generate my own income. The third and final goal of $300,000.00 will allow me to expand, taking my vision to a whole new level. Providing me the resources to open a state of the art studio, in which I can employ, cater to and bring in talent and help foster someone else’s dreams. As all great ideas have so much more that go into them. The details are set, however I choose not to disclose them. As it has hindered my growth in past endeavours. So check me out, and click on that pesky little donate button and help Ignite my future today.
