Just to clear up an all too common literary misconception, Mark Twain never said "The coldest winter I ever spent was summer in San Francisco." Fact.

He DID however say that "America is New York, New Orleans, and San Francisco. Everything else is Cleveland."

Also a fact.

Oh, I've always said the best "get rich quick" scheme in America is to sell hoodies that say San Francisco at fishermans wharf in July and August. You could live on the income of two months a year.

A huge thank you to Asheville for the warm welcome and all the love last night at the gallery opening. To be embraced by a community so vibrant and supportive has been beyond amazing, and I feel like I'm already part of the family after only two days.

For those of you that didn't make it, or might be coming through town anytime soon, please stop by 5 Walnut St to check it out!

If you are in town and want to become part of the project and get prints of yourself I have some spots left for today's live shoot at Soveriegn Remedies. I'll be there all day and most of the night. I won't leave until everyone who wants to has a chance to be shot.

Contact info is on my website at www.samirosman.com

To book a session for today please email my pr goddess at mary@spiritsavvycocktails.com to find out what time slots are available and reserve your spot!

Much love to all of you!

Who's up for a road trip to Awesometown?
"The 'Projecting' series happened organically, as all my work does. Most of the time, I feel like the camera is using me instead of the other way around," says cocktail guru and artist Samir Osman, who will be in Asheville Feb. 9-11.

It seems that for some people the idea of compassion entails a complete disregard for or even a sacrifice of their own interests. This is not the case. In fact, you first of all have to have a wish to be happy yourself – if you don’t love yourself like that, how can you love others?

I just had the most inspiring, amazing, and perspective gut punching shoot to date. I know I said I wasn't going to share anymore of the series until it was in galleries, but this is just too good to keep under wraps. You may want to get a box of tissues before you read further. 

"J" was diagnosed with cancer for the first time at 14. He had a walnut sized tumor on his knee. At that time they normally would've amputated his leg, but he was lucky enough to be accepted for a new treatment. It caused major damage to his knee, now completely artificial, and eventually had to be rebuilt again. His sports career was over. About a year or so later it came back, this time in his lungs. He went through excruciating amounts of treatments, chemo, radiation, the whole gamut. Finally after struggling and being sick from the treatment through his entire teen years he gave up. He told them he couldn't take anymore, and that he was ready to die. They removed all the tumors they could, and he quit his therapy. The doctors told him he had a year at best to live. He was 17. Then he met the love of his life, and everything changed. He started getting better, and went into full remission. They are still married today, nearly 30 years later, and despite his body being littered with scars from myriad experimental surgeries, he is in perfect health and they are two of the happiest, healthiest, and most beautiful people you could ever know, with children just like them to boot.

It just goes to show that love really can heal all things. 

There are no faults in our stars.
