Neville DeAngelou


Like any good mother, her desire was to have her child grow bright and bold, and to be full of good humor and wit, and to be generous and courageous and kind.

For, being such, how could anyone not have the most beautiful story?

After all, what is the code and concept of life, of living, of humanity, if it is not to find one's calling and to have that calling be greater than one's self; if it is not to pursue that calling and complete it with joyous self-respect?

_ Neville





Imperfectly Perfect

Who Are You Wearing today?

We are our stories. Live-in billboards.

The way we walk, talk, dress, the way we bear ourselves, tell stories: some whispered, some screamed, from jumbled to pristine, inaudible or unforgetable, avant garde to run-of-the-mill, or in-your-face, maybe serene. We are willing and unwilling storytelling machines. Vehicles. And we are stories. Human! Fashioned! Unique! Part memoir. Part fantasy. All indelible. All erasable. A mystery! Then again, perhaps, all of it may well be the very same story reflected through flickers of a shattered screen - time - space-time - splashes from a divine smile! Or tear! None of it fiction, yet every bit. That depends on the entertainer and the entertained.

Isn't that so? Perhaps! Perhaps not! Let's see.

Are you inside or outside? How are you dressed? Let's take a look! Hmm? Covered? Or revealing?

It is always one and the other, you know, whether clothed or naked - both are a camouflage. Our "dressing" is our armor. Our "dressing" is our statement.

Regardless of comfort or effort or habit or disposition, our "dressing" purports itself unceasingly in those ways: armor - statement! Even in unawareness: statement - armor! Hmm? Let me let that sink in. Armor. Statement. Always! That's another word, advisedly, we ought to be wary of: always! Hubris. Aha.

Epiphany! [Fig leaf? ==> Street dress? ==> Red carpet? ==> Couture?] Who are 'we' wearing today? Specifically, what prompted this particular personality selection even if unawares? Ah-ahem, the mirror!

Let's consider four possibilities:

  • aspiration - inspiration - revelation - intention
  • dressed this way because
    • a) it fits well
    • b) it fits the mood
    • c) it fits my cast (that confounding mold)
    • d) I'm fixed to blast mood & mold into chips of gold

So, who are 'we' wearing today? What word might this garb be writing here: conformity, freedom, rebellion, power, courage, strength? Is it a superpower cape, invisibility cloak, tribal mask, royal flounce, or a beggar's rags? From which vein does its indelible ink stream? What is its reader wearing?

Welcome to our seventh episode of Profitable Values - fashionable - curated by Neville DeAngelou. Every letter, every word, every sentence, every punctuation mark, is its own eternal story read by the non-dyslexic writer. Well, perhaps! Aren't you, indeed, a most awesome story worth being read in detail?


Preparation is premium.


Enjoy actionable discoveries continuously shared - smartly - particularly those that uplift, inspire, promote harmony, expand opportunities, exemplify beauty, and reveal wonder, in other words, those proven to strengthen our emboldened exercise of genuine love through all of love's fertile dimensions, supplying those of us who are blessed and inspired to take action with necessary skillsets to be awesome in our real world. Namaste. Share.

Freedom To Flourish

Every second you spend doing something is a second you are not doing something else. That is an inescapable physicality of the universe we occupy. At least, predominantly! It doesn't have to be your limitation, though; it isn't for many. (I am smiling. Now I am laughing. Oh boy!) Here is the kicker: decisions are "happening" all the time. Every moment. All around us. All around you. Decisions. Decisions. Decisions. Ooops! Like pebbles dropped into a musical pond. There is another decision you made. And you didn't even notice yourself making it! Ooops! There is another. Yes, you did! Ooops, there is another. How is that even possible?

... that's the comedic genius of choice ...


Create and optimize transferable value for a life of lasting significance regardless of endeavor.

We define profitable exchange  to be  'value for value'  offered in the arena where stakeholders are satisfied, causes are advanced toward individual and common good, and lives are experiencing wholeness and enjoying significance.

We are exploring alongside exceptional creators, influencers and producers. As a barometer, during each of these episodes we are applying a relevant value-set of one or other of RyoSports Athletes pivotal cornerstones - fierce, flexible, fun, friendly, free, fashionable - to guage healthwealth and wellbeing, and will encourage you to do likewise.

Hop on for a fun and fruitful ride.




Today's pivot QUESTION: let's say you are comfortable with your underlying motivations, you recognize yourself as a person of goodwill, and you are comfortable navigating prevailing lifestyle trends

- which of the values you embody allow you the freedom to connect to as well as nurture valued authentic relationships?

Strong Wings, Strong Will, Strong Wind

Let's let this strong stand in, stand up, and stand out for healthy, durable, secure, resilient, extraordinary, outstanding. In this paradigm (the one we've elected for this vital understanding) we recognize that to soar, as in flight up, over, and across the oceans and valleys and deserts and mountains along our journey, we need wings. We can grow ourselves some fine wings. Beautiful wings. Gorgeous wings. Fashionable wings. Impressive wings. We see them. We feel them. We know them. We need will. We can birth ourselves impenetrable wills. Samsonian will. Joshuan will. Spartan will. Tubmanic will. We've experienced as much plowing through the sludge of preparation's darkness. But we'll need a strong wind too. Ah! From whence cometh such across these fields?



Fly-dreaming offers such sweet relief: somewhere out there a night in shining armor preparing to come; a savior once did too, surely another is set to come, just one more go around to calm this toss-and-turn! And did a big fish not do miraculous things; and a ghost too? And timely morsels (sweeter than any fire has ever steamed) soothed a multitude of tongues, and tummies too. After all, there is no limit any man or woman can place on such! None! None! None! Miracles are occurring multitudes upon multitudes unannounced. Testimonies innumerable attest. Why then not now, just as soon as this fly-dreaming is done? Sweet relief! Or, perhaps, just a moment longer. Soft pillow. Cushioned mattress. Contented rest. Sweet dream. Let there be a noonday knock upon the door! Blessings galore. Here, covered - safely - from these bloody gusts. Decision. Decision. Decision. Decision. Gorgeous birds. Irresistible feathers. Clothed. Oh, Sweet Jesus! Tears.


"Keep your thoughts positive because your thoughts become your words. Keep your words positive because your words become your behavior. Keep your behavior positive because your behavior becomes your habits. Keep your habits positive because your habits become your values. Keep your values positive because your values become your destiny." _ Mohandas Gandhi



A cynical look at fashion may harp on a view of it as fad, as ephemeral, as ostentacious. We've chosen otherwise. Our focus is on liveliness, energy, presence, creativity, being winsomely challenged, being inspired to be green enough to grow and gritty enough to be transformed in concert with our seasons, recognizing that there is a time and season for everything under the sun, by the very nature of the workings of our universe. And that there is discovery in the new! And that the novel inspires growth. And that there is wonder and wholesomeness in diversity. Our focus on fashionable as a profitable exchange and as a fascilitator of profitable values is on collaboration, emotion, visibility, connection, inclusion, sharing, awareness, renewal, revitalization, taste, a lightness of being, a flare toward joy. In a word: style! You can't buy style. How about your fashion? What values inspire your style? What styles inspire your values?

In the wake of an awareness that style says who you are without you having said a word to contend its reveal, what will be your next move?

Profitable Value

GROWTH with GRIT - foster openness and humility in order to be present & engaged as well as to learn & be aware





"An infinity of forests lies dormant in the dream of an accorn."

_ The Tea Lover



Profitable (defined)

beneficial - useful - advantageous - helpful - of use - of service - valuable - productive - worthwhile - rewarding - fruitful - enriching - illuminating - informative - well-spent.

Those who know better are better positioned to be better!



Action Options for fashionistas:

"Fashion is the armor to survive the reality of every day life." — Bill Cunningham

"We must never confuse elegance with snobbery." —Yves Saint Laurent

  • Know who you are.
  • Know where home is.
  • Know why you are who you are.
  • Know why your home is your home.

Your style already says it all. You can keep it. You can change it. It's a decision.

Remember: It is YOUR LIFE; only you can live it. Live purposefully; that is profitable.




Take Action

"Know what you own. Understand what you claim. Believe you can achieve what you conceive then call it by its name. Mine! The extent to which you have this clarity of mind, this purity of understanding, this strength of belief, you have the fire, the fuel, the impetus, the passion, the determination, the willpower you require to pursue and retrieve your truest desire. But do not claim what does not belong to you. It will not keep you . . . it will suffer you but for only so long."

Riding Moby Dick



You are valued. You are important. What you experience is important. Your intention matters. You are a whole being. You are a true wonder. You diminish yourself whenever you pit valued elements of who you are against vital elements of who you are: your intuitive self against your intellectual self, your rational self against your emotional self, your gut against your heart against your head. Don't be put at war against yourself: you are a masterpiece. An intricate being. Human!

Cherish The Moments - It's Profitable!

Life: it is a dance. It gets better with practice; its music is in your heart and in your soul and in your blood and in your bones. Life; it is a dance. It gets better with practice. You have a partner – your spirit. You can have a party if you like, but choose smartly who you invite, for life – your life – is a dance. It gets better with practice, unless you stop the music or so crowd your dance floor there is no space to move or be moved within it. Explore. Yes, life; it is a dance. It gets better with practice until the dance becomes the dancer and the dancer becomes the dance and life and all of existence becomes a singular flow. Yes, life; it is a dance. It gets better with practice. Dance.

Life In Search of Home?

Home is a special place. Love resides there. The best journeys take you there. Hope lives there. Home leaves no question about belonging. Friends belong there. Dreams thrive there. Home is a place of forgiveness. There is no rejection there. Home is a place of rest and recuperation and rejuvination. There is laughter there. Life takes you to unexpected places; love brings you home. At home you are free to flourish. It is where you birthed your wings. Are you there yet? Billboard Question in The Arena: Does your life need a prescription?



Out beyond ideas of right doing and wrong doing there is a field. I'll meet you there.

When the soul lies down in that grass, the world is too full to talk about.

Come, let us all be friends for once, 
Let us make life easy on us, 
Let us be lovers and loved ones,
The earth shall be left to no one.

The Great Teller shares An Epic Truth

Across the nation and around the world there is a long rumble.

It is a rumble so loud it strikes ready ears as a distant clap of a fierce thunder. It is a rumble so low, it rides beneath the noise of a thousand human fears; it can no longer be heard. Fear of flight, fear of heights, fear of sand, fear of snow, fear of monsters in the closet, fear of bugs in the pillow, fear of cats, fear of bats, fear of strangers at the door, fear of being lost, fear of being laughed at, fear of being stuck in the toilet bowl, fear of whites, fear of blacks, fear of browns, blues and yellows, fear of nakedness, fear of the unknown, fear of being hurt.


2:26 AM - The Gathering

Smile. Live. Love. Laugh. Look. Listen. Learn. Be awesome. You are powerful beyond measure. You are not alone. You can do all things. I am you. You are me. We are one. Keep Sharing.

"Live Your Life - Live it well. You are worth it."

Listen. Learn. Lead.


"I have the audacity to believe that peoples everywhere can have three meals a day for their bodies, education and culture for their minds, and dignity, equality, and freedom for their spirits. I believe that what self-centered men have torn down, men other-centered can build up." Martin Luther King Jr. Decisions. Decisions. Decisions. Who is making yours? (In proxy.) Who is deciding your freedom and your flourish? (In proxy.) Where are you being decided? There's your power! Look. Listen. Learn. STRETCH! (A Place Called Ah.)

We are accompanied.
