WOW!!! I am truly honored by such deeply felt reaction to the work!!!! I did visit your gallery and consequently the value of your comment ascended to a whole new level. I left the following comment under your "Unicors Giraffe": Unconditional artistic creativity with pure personal style. Just like the Universe Itself who takes 92 elements, a handful of isotopes and creates an infinite variety of beings, you do the same with the visual elements of your choice to offer us a pic into your magical inner universe!!!!! Awesome! Thank you for the generosity of your artistic giving spirit! Smiles from the heart, -- JE
Well, there's art that is worth commending comments, this is such a picture. And I'm glad you can rejoice at frank, nice words, because so many people see them as self-evidence and taken-for-grantedness!
Some of us hold our herts upfront, like you do! The energy that accompanies your words is that of angels. The Earth is where we end up feeding the masses of those many ones you see before you! It is a privilege to hold the good in us! But the price is the loneliness that comes with it... Yet, There are enough of us around to hold each other, support each other, care for each other, and make the journey a worthy and beautiful one! Hello to you my fellow journeyman, nice to meet you on the higher path! Smiles from the heart, Joe
Sometimes there is loneliness, yes, but sometimes there are great moments of spiritual affinity, if this is the right phrase. Moments you can totally enjoy, without any troubling thoughts, without thinking about anything at all, for instance when running in the rain, when jumping into water, when feeling the soft touch of sunrays on your skin, when making a person happy, when finding somebody who understands a very special part of you. Often I tend to forget about that, but I always try to remind myself of being and staying myself.
And, by the way, I love the expression "smiles from the heart", I really want to give that back to you!
I do relate very much to what you say. The ability to step outside of the mental boxes of "common sense" and "reality" to just experience the fullness that comes in when the mind and the heart are empty of "stuff" id the state that throughout all my life has been able to provide the drive to always continue to experience the new and the impossible! Thank you for your comment on "smiles from the heart" It is my signature and was a little hard at first when I started to use it. Now, however, it comes naturally!
Thank you! Just like a parent feels when someone gives them a nice complement about their children!!! ...and like a friend of a friend is a friend of mine... So I do not take your words lightly, I take them deep in my heart, I feel the joy of doing something that caused you good feelings, and then I relish on your gift back to me... ...and now I let you know that your appreciation has been felt, enjoyed, loved and the dance of the hearts is now going on simply as gifts and never as takes!!! Thank you so much!!!!!!
