“Individuals often withhold help because they are uncertain about whether beneficiaries will appreciate their assistance. Expressions of gratitude can signify that a beneficiary values, needs, and accepts one’s assistance. Previous research has shown that grateful feelings enable people to savour positive experiences, cope with stress, and strengthen social relationships. A disposition toward gratitude is also associated with higher levels of subjective well-being, demonstrating that counting one’s blessings can increase positive emotions and health”, Francis Flynn, Professor of Organisational Behaviour at Stanford. Appreciation is one of life’s great motivators, when we take the time to let people know that we value them, it naturally inspires them to continue doing even more. Gratitude is the ultimate gift that keeps on giving and I hope you all realise that each image you create, and each artist that we feature, enables this process to multiply. Emotions can cloud our judgements and influence our decisions when triggered by a situation at hand, it is of course also possible for emotions triggered by one event to spill over and affect another, unrelated situation. Here at TheAppWhisperer HQ, we are well versed in this, ‘linger longer’ as our dear friend and artist Carolyn Hall Young advocated throughout her life. We each have a choice in our decisions, however complex, objectively and thoroughly. This weeks Mobile Photography and Art showcase is bursting with high end creativity. “Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose”, Steve Jobs. For many of us who have stared death in the face too many times, it is important to remember disinhibition can be a good thing, sometimes feeling anonymous frees some people to be dishonest, for others, it frees them to perform at their very best.

Only dedicated circles can give birth to something new‘, a quote by a circle of African wise women, capturing an important lesson in life, engagement starts small and requires a team of committed people. This quote is also functional to TheAppWhisperer and Mobile Photography and Art. Each artist featured in this weeks Mobile Photography and Art Showcase is dedicated and emotionally engaged with the present and future of our art. They are also committed to initiating and implementing all the changes we need to bring about, to move forward. We as a group are willing to respect each other and each others work. TheAppWhisperer is a holding space, for the future of mobile photogrpahy and art, an emotional home for our joint iniative. If you pay attention to somebody, or something, that’s an expression of love. Only when you love, can you do that. Implementing freedom of your own thoughts, is genuine freedom, when you get there, it can be transformative and healing. Pause, connect, create, this is the secret. Enjoy!
