In Finland there's this thing called "the awkward silence". For most natives, I hear, this has never been a thing at all, but for a lot of foreigners this can be one of the most socially uncomfortable aspects of Finnish culture. *
Nine people sitting around a table, enjoying some drinks and good food, talking about all sorts of interesting things. Then for no apparent reason, everyone goes silent and start staring into the nothingness, as if in a deep trancelike state. And they'll keep it up for the longest 10 seconds of your life. Then they resume the talking as if nothing happened. Did you say something wrong? Did you all temporarily run out of topics at the same time? Not really. I think the possible reason is way more interesting than that. *
I see that silence as a means of processing and absorbing what has been said in a deep, intuitive level. I see it as a sign of respect, a sign of being present. There's a great amount of trust, freedom and intimacy involved when you can enjoy the true melody of someone's company without filling up every single fermata with random chattering. I'm now off to enjoy some of that sweet music. Wishing you all an awkwardness-free Friday, whatever that means to you 🖤

My good friend, Steve aka #FranChopin , as a magical air guitar playing Zebra centaur 💖
Two years ago, I was feeling uninspired so I asked my friends on FB if I could draw them as mythical creatures 🧞I realized I never posted them publicly, so here’s one of them!
❗️Wait what? Are you asking me if I have nothing new to post so I’m posting old stuff again? What are you talking about???!!! 👀👀👀
Corram pro abraço, migs!

Training sessions can be so different from one to the next. 1st video (with air guitar to old Wings song - 80s malay rock group) squatting175 felt good and light for 3x5. Awesome session!!
One week later, (2nd video), squat session was so painful! Suppose to do 180 for 3x5. Ended up with just 2x4 🙄. Was feeling bloated and full of gas - just couldn't get into it. Thats the way it is in this powerlifting journey - some good days and some bad days. Just have to keep working at it. 👍👊
Thanks to the team @sgtitanspowerlifting , @shaifulrouse@adamfreakinstein for having my back during trg. @sgtitans#sgtitans#sgtitanspwl#over40slifting#squats #powerlifting#airguitar
Happy Yesterday Birthday @stephen_franco17 !!! You’re the best backup #airguitar player around!! @joceelinnn ain’t too bad either. The Lance Project wouldn’t be the same without the supporting cast.
