the artful dodger

after years of living internationally in places like india, singapore, puerto rico, and brazil; leading seminars on human rights, social justice and environmental issues; coordinating international baccalaureate creativity, action and service projects; teaching a meta-cognition course called ‘the theory of knowledge’; coaching ultimate frisbee; leading trips... all the while preaching >>> ‘follow your passion’.

it’s time to model this philosophy with yet another (re)incarnation.

this blog will be an attempt at chronicling the adventures of a gypsy educator artist (me) based out of dallas, texas, currently teaching full time at the new IMAGINE INTERNATIONAL ACADEMY OF NORTH TEXAS. and, by design, there just may be commentary about sustainability, accountability, authenticity and most importantly, BEAUTY.

thank you for your time, interest, support, bandwidth, love...

blessed travels,

bryan vidrohi plymale ‘bdro’

This guy is my favourite singer. Unique and amazing.

I’m going to forever reblog this from myself every once in a while.

The ART of… Strumming


"This is the real secret of life — to be completely engaged with what you are doing in the here and now. And instead of calling it work, realize it is play."
Alan Wilson Watts

This is a beautiful video. It gave me goosebumps, in a good way. 

Namaste :)

The ART of. .. PLAY

Lila (Sanskrit: लीला, IAST līlā) or Leela, like many sanskrit words, cannot be literally translated to English but can be loosely translated as “play” (noun). It is common to both non-dualistic and dualistic philosophical schools, but has a markedly different significance in each. Within non-dualism, Lila is a way of describing all reality, including the cosmos, as the outcome of creative play by the divine absolute (Brahman). In the dualistic schools of Vaishnavism, Lila refers to the activities of God and his devotee, as well as the macrocosmic actions of the manifest universe as seen in the Vaishnava scripture Srimad Bhagavatam verse 3.26.4.
