“LUVV…” Moment~ A great thing about being a model is having great model friends. Here’s my bestie/soul sistah Haitian model Tico Armand shot by the great Laretta Houston these two always make magic together. Get used to Tico’s face you will see even more from her soon. She inspires me as a friend and model, I love this chick<3
“A strong woman is one who feels deeply and loves fiercely. Her tears flow just as abundantly as her laughter. A strong woman is both soft and powerful. She is both practical and spiritual. A strong woman in her essence is a gift to the world. I am Tico Armand and I am a Fanm Djanm (Strong Woman)”
Storm casting is back on, folks! Halle, thanks for keeping the spot warm, and also for keeping the bar low, because Tico barely needs to be able to speak English (wonders have been wrought phonetically) to top what we’ve had so far.
So I came across this video today… For some odd reason I could not stop replaying it, it was doing something to me… Stirring something from within. Now, That something had absolutely no words for me to describe. It was just a mixture of emotions, of pain, sadness, happiness, freedom, and confidence all at the same time. It was a confrontation but yet also a deliberation. It was art at its purest form. An expression of honesty, hardship, heartache, success, and soul bearing. A story that a lot of women can relate to, untold feelings that many young men grow up with yet so complex that most time they remain unspoken. Fortunately we find peace, relaxation and freedom through poetry and music because of great artists like Tico who was able to bare her soul and formulate our reality through words that become life. An artist who was able to exercise the courage we sometimes lack to set us free. #ARTISFREEDOM
