Sometimes the journey takes us over seemingly endless waters. Just keep pushing.
It’s been awhile since I’ve uploaded to my print site….this one was added yesterday.
I think I’ve used this title already. It’s ok. It’s like having two children with the same name. It will be just a little awkward sometimes…
The day was very non-cooperative when I made this…. No clouds…so I turned and used some reflections coming off the river behind me. I couldn’t represent the river for this piece. So I apologized for appropriating its tonal values. “Look”, I said,”it’s nothing personal. Your ripples and such are fine, but that’s not needed right now. But your light refraction is spot on! Moon has fully cooperated and allowed me to bring her down to the fake horizon. Actually, there’s not a horizon there….it’s just the way our minds complete things. It’s Tom Foolery I suppose. So are we good?” She said, “what’s light refraction?”

One another note….my second “Dream Sequence” ambient music video is well on its way….should be finished in couple of weeks. It will feature a compilation of all my butterfly cuts and some ambient music. Here is a WIP view.
We try beyond our limits To drown out the stars Our little lights beaming back messages Look at our significance!
Stars scurry into hiding Without fear of self-worth Without care or interest But full of curiosity
They ask moon, Who is this? Are not our lights Sufficient for them?
Moon laughs. “You know, we used to be. Now, some have never seen our true glory. And when they do, they are forever changed. They do not deserve our scorn, Or pity. They will be ok. Give them time, They are new at this.”
I grew up in the suburbs of LA and have always lived with the veil of human generated light blocking out our wonderful universe and its personal messages. There is much to learn in the places that reveal our true existence. Just by being quiet, watching a shooting star or distant satellite, we learn a little about our reality. The perspective of the totality of our being within this beautiful cosmos should motivate us to a tearful joy. Celebrate your place in this universe.
