Michael Phillip Cash Give Away



Have you ever watched those home shows where they have bought a dilapidated house and turned it into a show piece? It is certainly fascinating to watch. However, what if one of those houses has former ghost inhabitants that just do not want to leave? 




Author Michael Phillip Cash’s newest book, The Flip is all about a house flip going terribly wrong.


“Julie and Brad Evans are house flippers. They buy low, clean out the old occupants junk, and try to make a profit. Enter Hemmings House on Bedlam Street in scenic Cold Spring Harbor, Long Island. Too good a deal to pass up, but with an ominous secret. The old Victorian Mansion has dwellers that do not want to be dispossessed. As the house reveals it’s past, will the couples marriage survive The Flip?”
I read this book already and I can tell you myself that it is a fantastic book that will keep you at the edge of your set. This isn’t my normal genre but I love house flipping shows, and I have read a couple of Michael Phillip Cash’s other books, so I decided to give it a try and I am really glad I did! I couldn’t book this book down. Every time I thought I had the story line figured out I was wrong. Even at the end there was a twist that caught me by surprise!


Just in time for Memorial Day weekend and looking toward the Summer,  Michael Phillip Cash wants to introduce The Flip to the world at large. The author is generously giving a great and fun prize pack that will set the winner up right for Summer fun in the sun.


One winner will receive all of the following:

Straight From The Hawk’s Beak

babydolcprlGood afternoon ladies and gents – it has been awhile again, but 2014 has had a busy beginning, as I stated in the last blog entry: “Lots of Changes” which I posted on January 8th. I am taking online courses to improve my photography and Photoshop skills and as I stated in the last blog I am moving out of the studio space I have been in for almost 3 years and that move will be finalized as of next week. The last of my belongings, backdrops, display items, etc will be moved out.

As of next week, hopefully, I will be completely ready to start this next phase in my life. I have already had two new photo shoots (as you can see from the photo to the left) which I am spending a lot of time editing the pictures. Plus, I have updated my web store. Please, feel free to go have a look around and leave me comments.

I also have a bit of brand new exciting news to share as of TODAY actually:

We received an invite today to become a member of University Heights Arts Association – Trinton (myself) owner of TrinityHawk Photography & Multimedia and all of us here, are very honored and graciously accepted. We will be sending in our membership fee ASAP. If you are interested in knowing more about this wonderful Association you may check out their Facebook page here.

Moving On Up as the saying goes!!!

Baby Announcment

Now on a more personal note:

Also, my daughter will has entered her 2nd trimester of pregnancy so things are getting a wee bit easier on her and she is starting to show, which is exciting. In February I will get to go in with her to see the baby on thttps://transhawk.wordpress.com/wp-admin/post-new.phphe sonogram and hear the lil – grandbug (as I am calling her/him) heart beat. I am very much looking forward to this experience! We already have pictures and I will get these scanned in and posted soon. But until I can get the actual picture uploaded below is the baby announcement I created for her and her fiancee using the sonogram picture of the baby.

Below is an announcement I created for my Heart daughter and her husband with the birth of their lovely little girl. – I am so blessed. Busy but blessed, with such a wonderful family that is growing.  Plus, such wonderful followers as you.  Thank you from myself and all of us here at TrinityHawk Photography & Multimedia.  One last bit of information before closing out this blog for today.   If you want to keep up with TrinityHawk Photography & Multimedia and the short ins and outs of what is going on you can do so here.

So, until next time – keep creating  – peace and blessings to one and all!

Lots of changes:

lifeischanges

Lots of changes have been taking place already this new year, 2014: Biggest change is I am moving out of the studio space I have occupied for more then two years. Main (ST)udios is changing as well and renovating into a space I feel won’t fit my needs, so I am moving out. Right now I will be working mainly out of my home while much of my finished art will be stored in a storage unit and sold on a website I am working on and Etsy: https://www.etsy.com/shop/TrinityHawksMinishop.

I have a new Assistant – she is young and a very intelligent lady who is very much a go getter. We both are looking forward to once this move is finished, getting down to the business of creating art. I am going to teach her how to create art on the computer, my families traditional bead work, and I have already said I am going to put her to work on organizing my receipts and paperwork – to which she actually was excited about. – go figure – LOL

My Heart daughter has gone into the hospital today, 1/8/2014 to have her daughter. We are all very excited about this addition! Plus, my biological daughter found out she was expecting at Thanksgiving, gave us yet one more thing to count as a blessing. She is due in July, would be wonderful if she had my grandbug on our wedding anniversary (which happens to be my mother’s birthday) July 11th.

Our family has several birthdays in July, so if this little one wants its’ own birthday, s/he has some work to do to miss hitting a birthday *chuckle*. week12

Back to the fact that I am leaving my studio behind, part of what made this decision for me is the fact that I have been reinstated for SSI (supplementary Social Security). The government acknowledged once again that I am disabled due to my Fibro, RA, debilitating Cupual Tunnel, and back issues. However, I only get SSI not full disability because I am self employed have been for numbers of years and do not have enough “credits”. These are credits they mark down on your record for how long you have worked apparently, and according to their “records” I haven’t worked enough hours in my life to qualify for full disability.

However, I have worked in some fashion or another since I was 11/12 years old. The thing is to prove this fact is not one that is easy to do, and in my case at 46 years of age, is nearly impossible. As my wife and I have learned the Government does not keep very good records, they lose records regularly, and one MUST read what is sent you not just take for granted they will know what is going on. We received paperwork recently that said I was addicted to Vicodin, she hadn’t worked at all in June of 2013, and that I reside in a subsidized housing (um no I don’t).

So, with all this going on and needing to constantly be on the alert and keep the paperwork trail correct for the government we have decided it would be best if I go part time and retire part time. We will see how this plan works out..as we all know I am a work freak and do not sit still very well.

feelpeace In the center of all this I am continuing my meditation and trying to find my peaceful center. For I know to find the peace is to find that place where everything will fall into place. I also know that the perfect diamond in all its’ beauty and uniqueness is created from Charcoal under stress and pressure other wise it only remains dark, black charcoal.

I will keep you updated on how the changes are coming along – until that time here is one of my new pieces:

"Flight of The Butterflies"
“Flight of The Butterflies”

I hope you like it. Feel free to lave comments and thoughts.

Peace and Happiness to one and all – blessings to you and yours in the New Year!

“We Are All One”

“The day everyone accepts the responsibility of being one with God, is the day we make our world more peaceful, loving and spiritual.”

“Kill The Zombie”

"Kill The Zombie"
“Kill The Zombie”

“Kill The Zombie”

I read today that the show Walking Dead has a saying: “Fight the Dead Fear the Living” This partly what inspired this digital enhanced Photograph.

Zombies can only be killed by burning them or cutting of their heads, or so I have been told. So, with in the photo I am burning the zombie. Yet, he is reaching out to me with pain in his eyes, begging me to stop. How could this be possible? I have always been told Zombies have no brain. I have always believed, that with no brain they can not feel pain, they can not think, they can not beg for mercy! They are an abomination! They must be cleansed from this Earth!

Wait! What if a Zombie has feelings? What if when you went to burn s/he begin to beg you to stop that the fire burned him/her because s/he truly did feel the pain from the fire? Then what?

This was my take on this digital photo, for those who Bully others and Gay Bash do so because they are ignorant! They do so because of “What they have been told” “What they believe”…those who are ignorant to diversity around them or to the fact that those who are gay are no different then anyone else except that they love another of the same gender.

Those who bully or gay bash truly go on “what they believe” because of what they have been told through the church, by their family, or through gossip, etc. Then they react out of fear, hate, ignorance – they cause pain and do it with a deaf ear, a blind eye to that which is being told to them by the one they are hurting..

So, this is how I came up with the idea for my digital enhanced photo.

Lets work together to Stop the silence…Stop bullying and gay bashing….think for yourself…learn that we are all the same human beings who are diverse people living on the same Earth. Lets find peace!

Wolf Code

Been working on some posters of late along with other client’s photos. After my external hard drive crashed, one of my lap tops crashed and my phone has been acting funny – not been real thrilled with electronics. So, here is one of my recent posters.

Every Time

EVERY TIME

 Everytime I look at you,
 Everytime we hold each other,
It is as if it is the first time.
 
When we meet,
When I first saw you,
I could feel the air,
Flowing between us,
It was electrifing,

I couldn’t take my eyes from you,
Your gaze sent shock waves
To my soul!

I keep trying to look at other things,
To think of anything but you,
But, my mind and eyes,
Keep returning to you,
 
My breath keep catching,
My heart keep jumping,
Every time we parted,
I had to see you again,

No matter how sick I was,
No matter what,
I had to see you,
I had to feel that energy
Flowing between us once again.
 
Now –
Everytime I look at you,
Everytime I think of you,
My breath catches,
My heart Jumps,
It is like the first time I saw you!

“Ice Blue Metal Swirl”

I am really proud of this one. I am still cleaning out external hard drives. So far have cleaned out 400 pictures tonight alone – over the past week I have deleted close to 1,000 pictures off one external drive and I have four of them to clean up and out.

I also am editing pictures for client and re-organizing my studio as I had a door put on my open door studio this week. So, I have been very busy making improvements, hopefully for the better.

My wife and I have Dinner guest coming this Sunday so tomorrow I will be cleaning house in between working on photos and burning CDs.

Let me know what you think of the photo to the left. I am thinking of having it printed on Metallic in large format! All sizes are up for grabs but the large format metallic print will being my studio for sale, as well placed on my etsy site.

Let me know if your interested in a print, and what size!
