” A Picture Tells “

self

They say a picture tells a thousand words.
I am not always convinced that’s true.
Some pictures tell a tale of 693 pages like a novel of classic literature.
Some pictures say nothing at all.
However the art of words does possess its own charismatic allure.

WELCOME to my story, a book if you will of interrelated
blogs displaying views of isolated images of paintings, wood sculpture and a diverse grouping of words.
I call it expression, free verse poetry, but its all art, and it tells a story in book form.

Please feel free to click on HOME and Scroll to experience visual images and verse of diverse presentation. An exhibition of sorts in a blogged book/

” Summer’s Promise “

Image

A steamy mist appears, floating like a gentle fog rising from the cooled surface of a path to anywhere.

Like mystic fog on black top now darkened by the refreshing afternoon shower.

Green leaf gently whispers in the cool of moistures air

A steamy street cooled by summers glistening raindrops evaporating on the boulevard.

A path to anywhere in search of summer’s promise.

Ice cubes coming out of the freezer steam as they are enclosed by the warmth of summer’s air.

A glass half full sweating with moisture, the condensation anticipation of summer’s promise.

A front porch view of the world your glass full of summer’s promise.

” Enigma Under the Bed “

Image

The protective coated nonstick pan shields the steel from the man.
Like computer monitors dropping dimes, we sometimes wakeup to twisted lives.
Along the freeway of life I slow my car to view an accident like the rubberneckers all in row.
Glancing, coasting by, realizing it was me facedown on the protective coated asphalt land.
Moisture drips from my brow, sizzles as it hits the asphalt frying pan.
Sleepless days and restless nights how did I get to the place where the Salvation Army met Godwill?
Left alone to contemplate computer monitor separates.
Allegations of isolation frying in a nonstick pan.
Enigma under the bed again, it’s just another giant hand rocking the bed in twitter land.

On ART:

Art is a complicated collection of thoughts, moods, expressions and energy, or not.
Art is always or should be combined with skill, academics, passion and lust.
Art is hot like the flames that burn inside of us.
Art is the energy that keeps us going.
Art is an enigma, but no mystery.
Art is danger and rage.
Art is beauty and grace.
Art is love and hate.
Art gives life and takes life.
Art is the essence of life.

“That’s Life”

file heart

There is an old saying that you only get one chance in life. I suppose in some respects thats true. I guess what I have come to understand is that you may have more than one chance but you may get it in a different way.

In other words life is about change. Many times you do only have one chance, but then again there is more than one way to arrive at your destination.

Acceptance of your present situation for anyone is essential. If it’s great not a problem. If it’s not remember there are options to achieving your goals, even if they are not exactly what you had envisioned them to be. Thats where the acceptance part of life becomes essential.

You can never start over completely anew.  But You can wear your life experiences like a badge of honor. Just remember acceptance of who you are and how you got to the point you are at in your life presently is of your own doing.

We are all the net sum of every thought and action we have taken in our life. Even when life has dealt us a bad hand, and it does, ACCEPTANCE is essential.

THAT’S  LIFE,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

“Nothing to fear, but your ownself.”

As people most of us fear what we don’t understand. Afraid, few people honestly explore the unknown. But we love to make uninformed judgements.

It’s interesting how we all possess the ability to influence each other. We can condem a person ridicule them, or praise them simply on each persons opinion. True that is human nature, and it does set some sort of guidelines for appropriate behavior or the so called societal norm, if there truly is a norm.

However we can also be positive role models. We can be inspiring role models who exhibit a life and behavior that of which another would choose to immulate.

In juxtaposition we can be the opposite, a negative role model. If you are being judgemental, closed minded and opinionated you are not a positive role model. You are not implementing empathy, so obviously you are not able to show any compassion nor understanding of anything unless it is of your own belief system.

So as we assess each others lives or behaviors as many of us do, try to be open minded. When you make judgements of a family member, of a friend or foe, you really need to understand their situation, lifestyle and culture especially if different than your own. You should not condem simply based on your personal belief system or your projected image of societial norms.
You cannot pass judgement on things you don’t understand or fear, you need empathy.

However in order to actually employ empathy you need to effectively communicate. We all hear about bullying in schools. We all hear about terrible stories associated with bullying. As adults we bully too. Gossip, rumors, exaggerated stories is not communication only fabrication. It is bullying.

The prejudice judge who politically conceals his bias, The preacher preaching poetic philosophy from a psychological perspective, the paranoid prosecutor who fears public opionion. The vigilante neighbor, none of them can be fair and impartial. But we hold them up as role models??

They cannot be objective nor unbiased especially without communication and empathy. THEY ARE HIPPOCRITES. Role models yes but of what???
