“We are born to waste the most poignant moments of our lives. Half that battle is learning how to escape that time, the other half is learning how to use what we left behind."~Michael Kurcina
The truth is all men have difficulty using new eyes to reexamine old hurts upon their injured spirit in a comprehensive way because it might reveal how the most poignant moments of that life was wasted. What should be dead shame is alive, and if a man wants to move further ahead he should examine if there is a single source of drainage stealing his energy or if there are multiple currents causing conflict. Sometimes the physical body shows no sign of damage but the spirit is seriously injured. Perhaps his indifference or his ignorance or his full disregard of his scar compelled him to move ahead in life but these are likely short term gains until the flow of power is fully interrupted as he experiences a long term loss to the whole.
Just because a man's spirit can take a lot of beatings doesn't mean his mind holds a lot of good sense. The system will break. Why doesn't he focus on the reasons for the powerlessness that is holding him back? Oddly, men sometimes suspect themselves to be frauds, to be incomplete, to be incapable of loving or taking love, to be incapable of success while simultaneously believing they are incapable of defeat. Perhaps it's time for this dead man to reset the dead hands of his dead clock and bring his old life some new time."
Ravens are associated with wisdom, death, prophecy, foreshadowing, intelligence and even bad luck. In ancient stories the raven represented the guide that directed or escorted dead souls from Earth to the afterlife. In our artwork we intend that the wearer be the raven and the usher. As a psychopomp, instead of being the pilot that helps direct them to the afterlife, you are the conductor that shows men with "dead" spirits how to come back alive. Be the influencer, be the arrow, be the one that shows others the way.

About the Logo
A spotter is trained to look for things. In our Spotter Up logo, our Spotter is the omniscient strategist who looks at problems through a lens of opportunity. He sits atop his tower and holds command over the 360 degrees around him, as represented by the eight arrows, (six in view) in our black and white circular logo. From his line of sight, he can see around, above, below and beyond a problem. He isn’t stuck using the same movements, as a rook chess piece would do, because he breaks the rules when the rules plainly don’t make sense. He capably navigates himself around threats, and can go anywhere.
A Spotter is the known as the consummate Chessman. He identifies issues, gathers information on the threats, devises a plan, and executes it successfully. In heraldry, the skull represents victory of life over death, and our spotter tower is a fortress that is a testament to his ability. Sometimes success is achieved by looking inside rather than beyond, and it is gained by listening to what you ‘know’. He is the sentinel that watches over others, himself, and learns in order that he can point the way out of danger.

Consider the Athenian ideal of a balanced education. From the book Greek Realities: Life and Thought in Ancient Greece, By Finley Hooper "They could play some flute but should not neglect wrestling." They avoided the excesses of life. They might focus on music or philosophy but spent enough time so that their bodies did not become soft."
