Champion n. 1) Warrior, Fighter. 2) A militant advocate or defender. 3) One that does battle for another’s rights or honor. 4) A winner of first prize or first place in a competition. One who shows marked superiority.

WORD of the day: Champion

No time to waste, victory the only taste craves the tongue. The ambition to over come any obstacle, any challenge surpassable, and mistake a lesson learned not to be repeated.

Mental tenacity understated by cool demeanor, don’t mistake the God off appearance. A humble heart chained to a ferocious soul; An anchor to destroyer.

Be not confused, I bring peace for cool is the flow of a balanced mind. Still, as the sea hold depth unknown, so be it—the boundaries of a champion’s power. Limitless. Passionate ambition, vision set on victory, blind the rest.

Casualties of war, losses marked by the ability to proceed and continue, a new heart, a focused mind, cleansed of fallacies no time for distraction. On a mission. Core values and integrity never surrendered, a soul never sold. No dissention within the stronghold, the team falls under one rule; all or nothing. No other possibility.

Respect and Honor, the code which transcends all activity. Back against the wall fist clenched, a firm decision—full speed ahead. If you’re not with it you’re against it. As long as breath is in these lungs its gone be after the grand prize. We all fall, victors have mastered the stand up. We all make mistakes, the wise learn from them. Judge ‘em by their fruit.

I believe.

Putting in WORK.

God bless my team and have mercy on mine opposition.

Reflection and Response.

Samuel Bostick


the LIFESTYLE’s role is to create collective space for active Reflection and Response through the arts. This space is built around dialogue, expression, collaboration, and artistic (ex)change involving international craftspeople and their realities. The Porch Swing series opens up a Reflection and Response residency where we feature a Collective member’s ongoing project through weekly installations.
