Buffalohair: Award Winning Laureate Wang Ping Graces Literary World of Trinidad Colorado

Award Winning Laureate Wang Ping Graces Literary World of Trinidad Colorado

Wang Ping at TAAC Gallery
‘International Flare’ best describes the activities at the Gallery Main/Trinidad Area Arts Counsel. Along with a budding art community, the literary scene within this historic community has grown exponentially and nothing could emphasis this more than a visit by the ever popular award winning laureate Wang Ping.

Through the concerted efforts of the literary community and the Trinidad State Junior College, most notably, educator John Casuqarelli Wang Ping chose to grace this community with both a book signing of her epic piece ‘Ten Thousand Waves’ and do some readings from her book. On a side bar, her masterpiece earned acclaim as a feature film of historic significance in addressing the atrocious treatment of Chinese immigrants in the land of freedom, milk and honey, (USA).
Wang Ping
Open, warm and vivacious yet accented with subtle Asian mystery and timeless allure, that is ‘The Wang Ping Experience’. Whisked away to a place far removed from time and space, sometimes with joy and sometimes with poignancy and pain. In a culinary sense Wang Ping titillates and deliciates the literary palate of all who are graced with the sound of this enchantress’ voice. Mesmerizing would be an understatement and thought provoking would only skim the surface…

Was the audience whisked to a place of joy or dark forebode in a repartee of stark reality? Well, I was pretty frigging happy since Wang Ping was on the other side of my camera lens and I was in Downtown Trinidad Colorado. No rush hour traffic on the Hollywood Freeway for me eh. It was a two day adventure with a world class poet and humanitarian, Wang Ping. With the splendor of the majestic Rocky Mountains as her backdrop it does not get any better than that.
If you are aware of Wang Ping you are also aware she is never idle and everything has purpose and direction. In coming to Trinidad she also made the community aware of her on going *’Kinship of Rivers’ project uniting communities in kinship and harmony along the Mississippi & Yangtze Rivers. From what I observed it’s an extension of an olive branch in uniting people, not governments or politics. Just unity among the children of planet earth
Within this Kinship of Rivers project are these colorful flags molded after Tibetanwang5 Prayer Flags. For the most part they hold the same significance but with a dash of kinship for those who live along these powerful earth bound arteries of life and their tributaries. The flags where written with the hopes and dreams of the people then the thoughts symbolically released. All with the expressed blessing from His Holiness the Dali Lama.
Throughout the pomp and circumstance of Wang Ping’s whirlwind visit to Trinidad,
Beauty and the Beast
Colorado there was a theme that resonated during her entire stay and it was simply a message of love, tolerance and good will. What I saw through my camera lens was poetry in motion as this award winning woman blended and interacted with fans as if they were the oldest of friends and it was genuine. You could feel the magic as she made everyone she met feel uniquely special. You should have been there, oh well.

Sad News: Bloggers Beware ! For Your Protection!

 ***Update as of January 2016***

Review: about Lunarpages

I was able to speak with the highest level of support after speaking with the sales team instead of the support team. The sales team somehow had connections to the upper support who could do serious research on the server I am on. They found out there was an issue with their cloudflare, it was false flagging my website

Used to be a great host, must have been bought out or something a few years ago. I first signed up in 2003 and the last four years have been terrible. I have been on their basic hosting level since 2003 and never had any issues.


As times have changed, so has code, websites, mobile optimization etc. I am a graphic designer, I needed my websites to be responsive and wordpress based. Well I come to find out, their basic hosting plan essentially can't handle it. They have specific hosting for wordpress sites for $50 a MONTH. That's $600.00 a year, 600!!!! For a basic wordpress site that isn't getting any traffic. The template required a certain amount of memory and they can't accommodate it. Class action anyone? I would love to hire an attorney to sue them. 


 Their shared environment is full of spam sites, adult websites and their IP's have been blacklisted a great number of times. There is NO WEEKEND SUPPORT via phone. None. Email support, virtually NONE. I have to wait HOURS, and HOURS. Then you get several different people who say several different things and they are also all outsourced foreign support. Good luck with that.


Don't even bother with them. What's sad is I consider godaddy to be the SCUM of hosting and they are better than lunarpages right now. What does that tell you?! 

Working on moving my sites ASAP.

 On to bigger and better things.  Will probably move the remnants from the shared server as well and completely kick them to the curb.




Review: about Lunarpages

 Worst host I have ever dealt with. Nothing but issues on a consistent basis. Always calling in to have my site repaired for PHP or other problems because these guys just update shit without telling anyone nor do they suggest how to fix it. Luckily I am moving on. I would not recommend them at all. Complete rip off, my site has been down for 3 weeks because they upgraded PHP without telling me. So now I am stuck either buying more products/service from them or moving on. I chose to move on to someone better. Fuck this shit!  Oh and my site constantly had SPAM and issues due to lunar pages server. I know see from reviews here why I had so much trouble. 7 years is enough for me. Adios losers!


Review: about Lunarpages

Their customer support is horrible. And their IP addresses are in the CBL for spam, so some of your emails are going to bounce back.




Lunarpages web hosting: avoid
