Tao Hui - The Dusk of Teheran, 2014 (Colours and sound single channel video, 4min 14sec. Tao Hui was born in 1987 in Yunyang County and currently resides in Beijing. Raised in a mountain village, Tao explores themes related to the symbiosis of cities and rural communities through a wide range of media and styles, including graphic art, painting and installation as well as traditional techniques and culture. His work frequently presents a critical perspective on how contemporary society has rapidly modernized and globalized. The Dusk of Teheran was shot in Teheran during his recent artist’s residency. The video recalls a touching dialogue that Hong Kong pop-singer and actress Anita Mui had on stage with his fans on her final concert a month before her death. A local actress restages the dialogue in Iran, in a taxi, taking up the whole setting in an intense close up. As the artist points out: “In Iran, many rights of women are suppressed under the name of protecting women. Women are always in passive position in the frame of marriage law. Entertainment is forbidden for women and female singers are not allowed to give open performance. HK is a traditional place advocating for freedom and women in HK may freely pursue for their own love, dream and lifestyle. I chose to have an Iranian girl, who worked for a theater, reproduce a dialogue between the deceased HK female star Anita Mui and her fans in private car. The dialogue shows the free pursuit of Anita Mui for love and marriage. I am attempting to seek for the differences and common points presented by people from different nations and areas in the same story frame, and also hope to show the attitude of Iranian women toward life and emotion through such a kind of performance and review the free space for people under the governance of totalitarianism.” – Tao Hui) #art#artdaily#artlover#contemporaryart#taohui#chinese#video#culture#city#tehran#hongkong#actress#dialogue#fashion#look#smoking#beauty#anitamui#video#videoart#love#marriage#people#car#urban#iran#rights#women#archive#arensbergarchive
My number one fan and unwavering support. I can show him pure love and gratitude, give him a shout out every single day and still feel like I haven’t done this man justice. I wish for all of you who are wishing and praying for a true partner, one that gives as selflessly as mine does! :
Ontem não fiz a Gratidão a Deus do dia e meu coração sentiu falta. Hoje também não fiz a Gratidão a Deus do dia. Os motivos foram justos mas ainda assim o coração apertou.
Não adianta, meu coração sempre encontra um jeito de se encontrar com Deus e também de apertar se houver a ausência Dele.
Hoje tive a felicidade de assistir um casamento onde o nome de Deus foi dito mais vezes do que os votos de amor e fidelidade dos noivos. Que coisa linda, especial e gloriosa.
As palavras da cerimônia ainda são aquelas onde a simplicidade e o amor, a multiplicação da vida e a promessa de companheirismo são as coisas mais importantes.
Ah! As coisas simples da vida... Sim, ainda são elas que nos abraçam a alma, preenchem o peito e curam qualquer coração. Nosso grande e infinito presente de Deus.
Obrigada Senhor 🙏🏻
Yesterday I did not thank God for the day and my heart missed. Today I did not thank God for the day either. The motives were fair but still the heart squeezed.
No use, my heart always finds a way to meet God and also to tighten if there is His absence.
Today I had the happiness of attending a wedding where the name of God was said more often than the vows of love and fidelity of the bride and groom. What a beautiful, special and glorious thing.
The words of the ceremony are still those where simplicity and love, the multiplication of life and the promise of fellowship are the most important things.
Ah! The simple things of life ... Yes, they still hold our souls, fill our hearts and heal any heart. Our great and infinite gift from God.
Thank you, sir. 🙏🏻

Pls, order premium quality, elegant, class, exclusive, authentic and exquisite bead bracelets.
So so blessed. Our good good Father knew what He was doing when He created our hearts for each other and then brought them together to be made one. I am so thankful for how God designed the oneness of marriage and for the oneness I now have with my precious Ronald. “and the two will become one flesh. So they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate.” Mark 10:8-10 ❤️❤️❤️ #love#marriage#oneness#godlymarriage#husbandandwife#amor#guatemala#wedding
Are you “caught up?” Chasing Women Who are not wives? Leaving the women you KNOW are wives BEHIND? Because you know her standards are so high they’d REQUIRE you to CHANGE? To become vulnerable, To Grow, to PRESS INTO BECOMING the king you were born to be but currently don’t have the character for? Are you entertaining women who allow you not to show up, not to keep your word, not to become emotionally or spiritually developed, astute, mature, and available? Are you taking the EASY WAY OUT, and then wondering “where are all the good women ... the wives?” Being a king is not about a title. Ask John Snow. [had to get a GOT reference in lol 😂 ]. •
If you can’t behave with NOBLE CHARACTER ... as an upstanding man when no one is looking, with impeccable character, honor, integrity, discipline, self control and WOMAN control ... CHOOSING WHATS BEST - ABOVE WHATS PRESENTED ... then you’re not ready. Admit it. Put aside the crown and tell her you’re not him 😔😔😔 •
BUT if something inside you is READY to step into the unknown, to be courageous, to honor the warrior within ... CHOOSE YOUR FAVOR! Wife a WIFE! And stop playing with everything else. •
1 Corinthians 13:11
“When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child; when I became a man, I did away with childish things...”
There is work to be done in the kingdom. Women and children are holding it down in your absence. The frontlines need you. The harvest is ready but the workers are few. Get out of the strip club. Come away from the side chicks. Stop messing with that girl you know you’re never going to marry ... Stop with all the manipulative dysfunctions and CLAIM the crown. Where are all the REAL KINGS? •

It doesn’t get better than this!! Working on a script for an upcoming video while watching these two enjoying the pool! Happy Friday 💕
Happy Easter from the Moltzahn’s! 🐣🌸☀️ I have some new followers so I thought I’d let y’all know a little bit about myself and my famjam. 👨👩👧👧 My name is Rachel, and I’m currently a stay-at-home momma to my 2 beautiful little girls, Sierra and Alexis. Sierra is 2 years old, and Alexis is almost 6 weeks old. I just love being their momma! 💖
My hubby, Devon, and I have been married for 5 years this May, but we’ve been together for almost 9 years! #wheredoesthetimego
We live in beautiful southern Alberta, Canada 🇨🇦 I’m originally from British Columbia, but we moved to Alberta when I was only 8 years old. I love living in Alberta despite the annoying wind 💨 #yql#chinook
I have 3 siblings, 2 brothers and 1 sister. I always loved having lots of siblings. I can’t even imagine being an only child. 😝 #siblings
My mom is my hero! She’s been a single mom for a long time, and she’s literally one of the strongest women I know. #strongwomen
I told Matt I think we should pull our kids out of school and travel for a year someday and his first question was, “where would we get the money for the insane asylum??” 🤣 So true though. Doing #parenthood with him is way more fun. Also, it’s date night. 🙌🏽 Anyone have any fun ideas???
Wedding or engagement session your ready to book?? Visit zlwphotography.com for contact information and give me a call! I’d love to get to know you and what you and your partner are into and do a shoot catered specifically to that. I couldn’t care less about what I want, what’s important is that you two get exactly what your looking for 🤘
There are 5 languages of Love. What are they? Which one are you? Which one am I?
1) Receiving Gifts
2) Quality Time (me)
3) Words of Affirmation
4) Devotion (me)
5) Physical Touch
Time is important, and it is something you can never get back. Whenever I am taking a lady out on a date, I ensure I give her my maximum gentlemenly effort, and give her as much quality time as I possibly can. Because of my upbringing, my dad was in the Army and I grew up doing a lot of work in the house. Plus my fraternity always taught me the importance of "service" to my community. Devotion is a love language that I became very good at, and enjoy doing. It is an act that I do, and do not expect nothing in return. Because spiritually, it is fulfilling to see someone benefiting from my act of kindness.
I believe it is essential for all of us to know which of the five languages match our personality. So we are consistent at knowing and satisfying our partner's need. The only way you can know which of the five love languages fit your personality, is to love and know yourself first. Because you can't love someone if you do not love yourself.
Communication and Spirituality are two important components that uphold the five languages. You must verbalize your thoughts and feelings in order to be on the same frequency. Then communicate your troubles so you two can problem solve. In a spirtual sense, you and your partner must have a common value or way of life. So there is no friction when having conversations on how the world should work.
The language, "Physical Touch" is what we know the most. It is the first love language that is presented to us since the day we are born. Second language that we learn and understand is "Words of Affirmation". Physical Touch can go as a hug, kiss, or a pat on the back. Words of Affirmation can go as "I love you", "you're pretty", or even "I like you a lot". My humble opinion is the two are easy and to common for people to fall for. I believe actions speak louder than words. What is your language? Thoughts and opinions?
