MIT Self-Driving Cars: State of the Art (2019) About Author admin 43 Comments Lifted Bodhisattva September 4, 2019 I love this concept,not only is art therapeuticbut it also is a way to help the voiceless and displaced speak their truth. I'm a disabled Veteran,Therapist and living in a city where homelessness is an abstract backdrop to the city skyline. It doesn't matter which direction you are driving you cant help but be affected by those who are struggling to make their lives better. I want to open a Coffeehouse where I can employ Veterans and those who are trying to find their way out ,I hope to deliver this under a not for profit status where a percentage of the proceeds will go directly back into the community to help establish normalcy in their lives. Thanks for always delivering to us what most people often ignore bravo,and Bonzai.👩🏾🌾📿💜 #invisiblepeople Reply shannon Bear September 4, 2019 im blue Reply booker k September 4, 2019 Great video Reply Joluvslilhorses September 4, 2019 Dark blue and blacks…….this is wonderful.

What kind of new psychology is this Reply Lisa Hyyppa September 4, 2019 🙏❤️✝️🌈💪🏼🛡♾ beautiful endeavors Reply TX GT September 4, 2019 Orange is a great color Reply Karen Louks September 4, 2019 Gibsonton steak and cheese Reply Karen Louks September 4, 2019 Microphone mistake Reply Nathalie Loujein September 4, 2019 I wish this video had been longer!!!! The people seem so much more relaxed and peaceful in this setting. It would be nice to ask them what they were thinking when they are at the art workshop. Hopefully the serenity gained this way will help them in their struggles to gain housing and employment. The lady dressed in yellow, who is staff, has a calming effect of her own! Reply annebeck58 September 4, 2019 I love this. As an artist, and as one who follows (and videos) the music scene, as well as some of the art-scene, in Austin…, it has given me a great idea. I am talking it over with some district folk I happen to know, downtown, and I am going to see if it is possible to start something similar.It will not be visual art. Or, it will not be that, mainly.. I think we can do something wonderful.Cheers!

Reply Vicious E September 4, 2019 That spiderman was fire! Reply Julie Sarah Jimenez September 5, 2019 I'm very grateful for all that you do and doing art is a good outlet to be able to do something inspiring and it helps in many ways thank you for giving them love and care Reply CIR GOLD September 5, 2019 This has got to be one brightest ideas ever if I would've had a place to go like this when I was homeless it would've been more bearable !! Reply Helen Simonsen September 5, 2019 What a wonderful programme, and so much hidden talent too. I feel now that I would like to start up something here maybe in a church hall. Thank you for sharing this video. Reply Princess Bagley September 5, 2019 This is AMAZING!! Reply Jame Spencer September 5, 2019 What a thoughtful and kind woman to get this up and running for the homeless, They are lucky to have her! 👍😊 Reply Spike TV September 5, 2019 Love this so much!! Reply kai russell September 5, 2019 I'm feeing green… Not sick green..not smoke green, But Courage, Nature, and Hope Green. Willfully spoke these words, while I smoke trees,That line starts a lil rap for my brokskeezsAnd that game, I peep the flow like a bats vein. Talent is lacking, and whack attracts fame, Go ask that gang… Gucci this, ma-terialistic bitch, I'm the Monster that goes bump in the night and I dont act tame. Stay breathin one step away from homeless, One breath from even knowing what's next, I just be in the momentSo when time strikes hard and you feel like folding But you can't cause you got some other shit unfoldingKicked man while he's down, got his rage on loaded, But you dont got the energy to make to face show it, Im a stop there… I dont even rap. Not promoting nothing. Just a people sub. Thats my first written. I'm 27. I of course can freestyle, have freestyled on maybe 5 occasions physically. Maybe like another 15 in my head. I'm an artist though. Thanks love you all🙏 . pray for everyone on hard times. Reply Barbara Hineline September 5, 2019 LOVE IT!!

Reply Rebecca Swilling September 5, 2019 How is this art suppose to get the homeless off the streets? Just a complete waste of time Reply Echo Infinity Dream September 5, 2019 Beautiful artwork!!!….🎨✏💗🌞😀👍💕💙 Reply Jones senoJ September 5, 2019 We were created… so makes sense….we love to create 🤔👍👍👍 Reply Tom Pellegrino September 5, 2019 This is TRULY AWESOME!! Reply susan brown September 5, 2019 Making people feel human again…because that’s what they are…rich or poor. Reply celestialcircledance September 5, 2019 It touched my heart to hear the guy describe how nothing is useless and everything in life has a purpose . Love his artwork too . A lot of them are very talented and you really see there happier more playfully side shine through ! Reply Alex's Psychedelic Channel September 5, 2019 How is this really helping homelessness? Think about it. Her entire description on their “mission”, is very vague..How will this help people find homes? If the art gives you hope, good for you I guess? But getting them off the streets just for a couple hours, just so they can paint a picture?..Not really helping homelessness as a whole in my opinion.. Reply DeeKay77 September 5, 2019 I love the idea. It's awesome. ☮️💞 Reply Sherry Dee September 5, 2019 Is Hurricane Dorian having an effect on this part of NC yet? I hope everyone is safe. I liked watching this piece. It's true that art can take us to so many places in our minds if we just sit there & let the colors flow!
