Beyond: Memoirs In A Time Lapse

‘Beyond’ presents poetry in colorful motion and music. In 3 distinct movements, its enchanting tour of Beno’s audiovisual craftsmanship lifts you from the electrifying buzz of the present to vistas of near-future tomorrows: Sparks of Inception; The pulse of the Organism; From Here to Beyond.

‘Beyond’ relates the seemingly limitless power of human imagination to create and transform on a scale far beyond our own. It is a tall tale of inspiration, courage, determination, tenacity and perseverance through adversity. Shot at locations throughout Abu Dhabi and Dubai, ‘Beyond’s implicit story is about much more than the success of the UAE. What is unfolding in the UAE is a shining, symbolic example of the towering achievements of mankind as a whole.

Gatherings

Spirituality in India is truly inspiring. The numerous festivals throughout the year are as much a time of worship as they are a time of gathering, celebration and excitement.

Witnessing a landscape of thousands of people joining together in a holy city to celebrate in happiness a common belief, is certainly one of the most vibrant and sacred experience one can have.

The Joy of the Jaguar XK140 Comes in Driving It

Winston Dabbs is a product of his time. As a young man in 1970s Compton, California, he was swept up in the local enthusiasm for British sports cars, status symbols among young black men of the time. Dabbs’s own entry into the world of British cars was modest — a Bugeye Sprite which he bought from a friend for $75 — but it sparked a passion that has stayed with him to the present day, a passion that led to a career in automotive restoration.

In the late 1990s, however, that passion ebbed when the demands of business and life prompted Dabbs to park his 1955 Jaguar XK140, purchased some ten years earlier, in the back of his garage and throw a cover over it. There the car collected dust for fifteen years until one day a few years back, Dabbs decided to pull it out, dust it off, and take it for a drive in the California sun. The Jag, now fully restored, hasn’t had much rest since then, and what rest it does get is thanks to the XK120 that Dabbs brought into his garage in 2012.

Now in what he calls “the highlight of his life,” Dabbs is always ready to hop in one of his dropheads and make a break for the city limits.. After all, as Dabbs puts it, “there’s no sense in having a car that you look at and say how beautiful it is if you can’t get in it and go to San Francisco.”

Maserati 3500GT Will Make You Fall in Love

We’re all affected differently. Some people fall in love because their dad or uncle had one. Others fall in love out of necessity, constant breakdowns requiring them to work on their car. For Mr. Frank Mandarano a tour through the Maserati factory in the ’60s was enough for him to be smitten. He bought his first Maserati a few years later, a red 3500GT, which promptly broke the day after he bought it. A bearing let go and he had a tough time finding parts.

So he started a Maserati club and began buying parts inventories around the US so that he and his fellow club members would have access when needed. Although he’s sold the business, he never considered it work as it was born of his passion for the brand. Frank has a few other 3500s, this one though, he’s nicknamed “La Latina” because it was one of five GTs sold new in Mexico City. And he loves driving it on lazy, desert roads calling the noise, “primal.” He doesn’t shift it too much opting instead to leave it in third gear and power out of turns enjoying the mighty aluminum straight-six and stainless steel exhaust.

Accessible to children and adults alike, it is being used in educational programs as a starting point to discuss the process of grief and what some of the positive outcomes of grief can be.
