- "Behind the Lens w/Justin Suyama"
TUE, 1/17, 8pm PST
When first viewing Suyama Images, one might say that the first thing they notice about the photographs are that they are striking, captivating, mesmerising, etc. One would definitely feel the essence captured on film, the expresssion of a moment held forever in time.
But who is the man behind the lens? That was my question and it continued to picque my curiousity as I devoured the pictures I saw on the screen.
Luckily enough, I was able to get ahold of that man, for a moment, and share his story with all of you tonight. From speaking to Justin Suyama and checking out his work- one gets a sense of his playfulness, you can hear his comedic side, you can feel the spark that emanates from within.
Justin Suyama, Professional Photographer, shares his journey into the world of photography, what inspires him when creating his gifts to the world, and how he helps others by giving back through his work; including his devotion to aide those who have been victims of human trafficking.

It's been said that "without vision the people perish".
Vision provides a direction for you to move forward toward your dreams/goals. But vision alone cannot help you accomplish your purpose. It requires discipline in order for a person to be accountable and responsible for their attitude, approach, and actions to be successful in life.
Today we will be talking about the importance of having a vision along with discipline so each person can decide how to approach their dreams/goals appropriately.

Comments15/01/2017 #29 Lisa Vanderburg#28 aw...thanks @Lisa 🐝 Gallagher, it was very tough, but it was also a time of the most intimate of love shared. You are so right - sisters ARE special! I pray yours with remain free of her cancer!
Hubby's just 'graduated' (he's the optimist, thank God!) to a walking stick, but a wheelchair for temporary work will follow soon. Parkinson's tend to act like growth-spurts in kids...just the other way :)15/01/2017 #28 Lisa 🐝 Gallagher#27 I'm really sorry you lost your sister @Lisa Vanderburg. I can't imagine how tough that had to be. My sister had stage 3B breast cancer 10 years ago and I still pray her check up's are OK. Loss is never easy when we love someone, sisters are special... they understand us in ways no one else could. How cool that you are trying to find your creativity in writing. It sounds like your husband is maintaining right now?! Sending hugs your way!!15/01/2017 #27 Lisa Vanderburg#25 Oh I so feel for you, @Lisa 🐝 Gallagher! My sister died 2 years and 4 days ago from cancer - I looked after her until the end - at home, the way it should be! We were BFF and soul-mates; heart-wrenching, but it was both beautiful and rewarding - no regrets - (just wish she was here!).
I'm really here to try and stretch my creativity in writing - see if I have a 'style' at all! I expect me and hubby have as much as 10 years - maybe more, so I'm not gonna mess that up :) Thank you for your kind words!15/01/2017 #25 Lisa 🐝 GallagherHi @Lisa Vanderburg, what a moving and vulnerable buzz. I can only imagine how much stress you must be under. As you stated, your not on here looking for a job. I think people forget that not everyone is on Social Media looking for a job, some are looking for socialization and conversation because they are homebound for various reasons. Some people are stay at home moms, others are retired and the many caregivers out there like yourself who benefit from sharing your stories because it may be cathartic as well? I admire people who aren't afraid to bare their souls. I admire people who take care of their loved ones, thank goodness for people like you. We kept our mom at home during her cancer, and what a bag of mixed emotions (no regrets) just very hard on the family watching the decline of someone you love and all the care, up's/down's that go with it. Thank you for sharing!15/01/2017 #24 Deb🐝 Lange#11 If you truly long for a connection with your Mother you will find a way. I write what I did in my draft book, yet to be published about caring for my Mum. I will find it and post it. And even though you say you had to give up your walks to care for your husband, you still need to take care of yourself so you can be well enough to care for him. I was told that by someone when I had my first child many years ago. Take care of yourself too, as if you are not well enough to care for a child, or a loved one, who will. So it is just important to find ways to care for yourself. By the way, my Mum refused to go into "institutional care" - As much as it was very challenging I am so so glad I gave her the gift of dying at home. I hope one day you will look back and be glad you did this for your husband.14/01/2017 #23 Lisa Vanderburg#21 So very true @Preston Vander Ven! In presentations we have done, I always start by describing my hubby as 'alpha male, incorrigible optimist and a guy who's completely in control of the world he lives in'. They I hit them with, 'how to you topple such a secure and self-assured man?....Give him Parkinson's!'
It is a brutal disease in its stretched-out degeneration; I'd happily murder it given half the chance :)
But, your right; even in crushing blows, we can reevaluate for the better!14/01/2017 #21 Preston Vander VenThanks You for that testimony. I also have someone close to me with Parkinson's. One benefit of this condition, it helped this person understand the importance of time and they now take every day of their life as an investment. Before, time was seen as something they could do whatever they wanted with, so it was usually wasted. They had their eyes open to understand it is our most important assets.14/01/2017 #13 Lisa Vanderburg#7 I am and will always be grateful for what you say and do @Ali Anani! I am blessed to consider you friend. Don't know how y'all do it - find the time to write such creative and profound pieces that in themselves, stretch my imagination and stir my soul. I am so stirred, I think I'll go walkabout!14/01/2017 #11 Lisa Vanderburg#4 Thank you so much for the tips on posting!!
You hit the nail on the head @Deb🐝 Lange...this 'confession' of mine is the stirring of doing something about it!
I have read about your Mom with such sweet longing; like @Max🐝 J. Carter, you both have experienced such an intimate, steadfast love between parent and child and it makes my heart soar! Even though I have not had that 'connection', I can imagine and certainly feel for your loss. Empathy is a muscle that can never be exercised enough! May your heart be always wrapped in your Mother's love and your soul refreshed with her courage.

Comments13/01/2017 #6 Preston Vander Ven#5 I believe so. I remember reading in a blog a long time ago. It become very useful, that I had to adopt this way of thinking into my daily thinking. I agree with you. Unless we have our why, or vision, we will never have our Important category, just the Urgent.13/01/2017 #5 Jared 🐝 Wiese#4 Ahh, Urgent vs Important. Now you are in Stephen Covey territory, right @Harvey Lloyd?! His 4 quadrants shaped my professional time management. Sometimes we need to even forgo the urgent, if there is something more important ;)
As you get into Robbins, you may find he came up with a time mgmt system, OPA or RPM. Outcome, Purpose, Action... and Rapid Planning Method which also stands for Result, Purpose, massive Action! The key is the WHY in both - hence, the important ;)13/01/2017 #4 Preston Vander Ven#3 I have only read two of his books so far, yet I have listen to him speak on YouTube numerous times. I love the quote you shared.
Time management is a skill that I feel that can never be mastered, just built upon and strengthened. Technology changes so fast in how we can use are time, and we just have to decide how to utilize this asset of time in our life. Is a task at hand Important or Urgent. If it is neither, scratch it from your list. If the task is both, it deserves all your attention at that mention. The hardest part is now deciding what in your life is Important and what is Urgent.
For example, time with my wife and playing with my children is important. This is time I will never had again. I may also have an important e-mail. Yet, that goes into an urgent category. This is also have we have technology to help us. For example, my auto-responder can deal with this urgent task.13/01/2017 #3 Jared 🐝 Wiese#2 That's a great one that I don't remember reading/hearing!

- Producer11/01/2017The basis of intuition and the power of your voiceIn the last 5 years I have dedicated myself to taking my intuitive skills and making them razor sharp as well as understanding how it works and why. My dad asked me this morning as I was talking to him about some of the difficulties of living life...
Comments12/01/2017 #5 Max🐝 J. Carter#4 Sometimes frequently.
Example. Last week I had a dream of meeting a white wolf while taking an afternoon nap. Later that night I met a man who has a white wolf as his spirit guide and main totem for his own shamanic journey.
I have talked with many and I myself often have dreams that at times are the exact situation I find myself in later. A form of deja vu.
I have talked with some who have reported having conversations with another they both remembered in the morning though it has been a rarity for me to hear of this and I have not experienced it myself.12/01/2017 #4 Lori Mullins JohnsonThank you @Max🐝 J. Carter
So, do dreams fit in this world of an Empath? I mean, would an Empath have intuitive dreams? Dreams that also tell the story of others emotions and feelings? Dreams of conversations and things that either come true, or relate to an experience later while awake?12/01/2017 #3 Max🐝 J. Carter#2 @Lori Mullins Johnson thank you and I agree with you the "system" does a lot to take intuition away and force the ignorant belief that it does not exist.
An Empath in simplest terms is someone who takes on the emotions of other people as if they were their own. It can feel like wearing someone's personality.
Often it is the repressed or suppressed emotions that the Empath takes on which is why lying to them about how you feel is never going to work.
Natural born lie detectors you can't fool. Often in the life of an Empath who does not know what they are they will be made think they always get it wrong and there is something wring with the Empath not the other way around.
The same thing for a Telepath who has access to your subconscious mind and Mediums have had so many charlatans that the real ones find it difficult at best to be treated with any respect. I happen to be all 3.
An Empath once they embrace their born trait can develop the Telepathic skill. This is due to the fact that the subconscious works in metaphor storing things as emotional concepts. Language is a learned skill and none o us is born speaking any language, we learn it in our environment and that language is added to the subconscious programming.
This is why when someone is telling a story we will see memories in our mind coupled with emotions to show us we can relate to the experience.12/01/2017 #2 Lori Mullins JohnsonHi Max;
I believe intuition is certainly something that we are born with to support our survival in this world, however, it is sort of trained out of us when we are young, because we are told we have to listen to that teacher, priest, authority figure, hug the weird Uncle hello, etc... My intuition has certainly saved me many times from negative and scary situations, including being followed home after school when I was twelve, and a teacher giving me an inappropriate book with sections underlined in it to read... yes, in elementary school. The rapist that came to the door to borrow the telephone because his car broke down in college -now that's a story. I think we must raise our children to understand that gut feeling, although sometimes not correct, is valuable and worth listening to, even if you do not choose to develop it for more than that. I only recently read an article about what an Empath is, so I would love for you to define it in your terms. Very interesting, thank you for sharing this.

Comments11/01/2017 #15 Max🐝 J. Carter#13 I rarely blush.... well done @Lisa Vanderburg.
You are too kind.
It is unfortunate that it is more machismo that is taught than true manhood in schools. One of my ongoing efforts is in teaching men to be more manly and that means more in touch with being able to express themselves with love without fear of being thought of as a homosexual and before anyone says something there is nothing wrong with being homosexual.
What's wrong is thinking only homosexual men can be emotional creatures who are capable of tender caring and compassion and experiencing what I call androgynous love.
The male friends I have in my life often get big hugs and hear I love you frequently.11/01/2017 #13 Lisa Vanderburg#6 Aw..God love ya! (I'm old, you can overlook this once), what a heart you have! I so long for your love, bonding and - yes - manhood! It should be taught at school to be in another's shoes :)
Just an aside for levity; my father's last word to me before he died (I was the carer that night) was, 'oh....SHUT UP woman'. Your Dad is a great guy and well worth your respect; just don't burn out!11/01/2017 #12 Max🐝 J. Carter#10 @David Navarro López it appears to me you honor him daily in the way you live.
I love the tile concept you shared with us and thank you for doing so.

I remember a very good one, which I am translating for you:
At 5 years old, Papa knows everything
At 15, there are things Papa doesn't know
At 25, Papa knows nothing
At 35, maybe Papa was right in something
At 45, I am going to ask Papa
At 55, I wish I had my Papa
My Father passed away on 2008 and there is no single day my mind flies to him.
I was lucky to have him, learned a lot from him. He never was too tired to teach me something. Whenever something had to be done at home, fixing a door, painting, whatever, he always took me with him and made me help him, explaining me why and how he was doing it, letting me do it, even if wrong, to learn.
In many ways, when you described yours, it made me think of mine. I am sure they would have been good friends.
I believe we both have been fortunate with our respective fathers.
I saw him going down in his health, day by day. However, he never left his spirit going down.
I hope I will honour him. Close11/01/2017 #6 Max🐝 J. Carter#3 It felt like a living eulogy as I was writing it. Kind of preparing myself in away for the inevitable.
I found with my dad that there was this unspoken competition for alpha dominance so to speak that went on for too many years. It has done both of us a world of good to set that aside and work it out. I think a lot of fathers and sons go through it and I see it in mothers and daughters at times
I remember the old movie THE BREAKFAST CLUB and that I am calling it an old movie is making me feel old ;)
When a teen girl is asked why she wants to run away she says "My home life is unsatisfying."
The response summed up was so is everyone else's or we would live with our parents for ever. I only hope to not have the same rfit with my own son and work at it with him. He's 12.
Thank you @Lisa Vanderburg for your kind words, they are felt and appreciated.11/01/2017 #4 Julio Angel Lopez LopezI'm doing it @Max🐝 J. Carter
He is 90 on the 17th of this month.
I have the impression that his gaze is lost in memories and I hear his stories repeated over and over again, giving him a face of surprise and laughter as if he told me for the first time.
I own him.
Thanks11/01/2017 #3 Lisa VanderburgWow...that hit home, Max. What you have so beautifully written is a living eulogy, although I can understand if you don't see it as such!
I feel your steps, moments of watching, waiting and breath-holding regarding your father's Parkinson's - my husband is 18 years into his and is moving to a wheelchair (temporarily, of course!). You are a good son and a practised listened; your father has taught you so many great life-lessons, and I find it so freeing to hear you talk of this - even though it costs you plenty! My husband started aged 49, so our sons were early teens. They never talk about it (at least to me). I wish they did.
Thanks @Max🐝 J. Carter, for the love you have for your father.

Comments14/01/2017 #7 Preston Vander VenGreat Write. To make our lives beautiful like art, we need to think outside the box of society. The culture today wants to limit us to be like drones or mindless sheep and follow the herd. There is no beauty there. I find the some of the greatest minds of those who still have their hearts of a child. Note: I did not say a mind of a child. The heart of a heart is limitless, with no borders. A child's imagination can solve any situation in the world. Yet, while growing up, society tells us to stop using this great gift and think in only one direction.
Creativity is experimenting. Some people view it as failure. No, we just found another way that didn't work for us. "Try, Fail, Adjust, Try, Fail, Adjust,....., Succeed."
