Perhaps our dreaming, all our scheming
Will keep us striving to our contriving
Towards all that would be our hopes full-grown.
Hoping Today IS
The Greatest Day I’ve Ever Known
.

Today really is the greatest day I’ve ever known. . .
Each day is. . . as it should be.
Enjoy all of the little idiodysseys experienced in life
For the alternative is one not to be considered. . .

Additional thoughts as inspired by Rosa:

The sky, it is suffocating – as is a possibility with the girl hanging by her neck as she is trying to balance everything around her while the walls of the world ooze their sticky dark tar. . . and all the while the child continues to beacon… come here she says to the bird who sits there refusing to comply. He does not want to be part of the quicksand dart board. . . and then there the is the chimp who is so entertained by it all… he is quite enjoying himself and wonders who has conjured him there. . .

This is what your thoughts made me think… THANK YOU Rosa….

Sept 17

I started this with my original image shot with my Nikon CP8400. Taken at sunset at one of my favorite magical places, Camp Pendleton, San Onofre, Southern CA, USA.
My assignment: My first attempt at surrealism. Created in Photoshop CS2 – look deeply & you will see fractals created in Fractal Extreme. Used the Fractalius filter on various objects in the image & Redfield ripples.

Hello, I am Rhonda aka RestLeSsD & I am a graphic & web designer. My main media is Photoshop & Dreamweaver. I create 3D art & images using Fractals from Incendia & Apophysis. I use these in my creations formed in PS. I also use Picture Window Pro and Paint Shop Pro.
I am also a poet & I have been writing since I was about 10 years old. Since being here on the Bubble I have fulfilled my goal of illustrating my poetry & writing as well as writing new works…

    Subversion….that´s it.
    The sea is flying…
    the sky is partaking of geometrical vision of the world.
    Patterns broken by strange dreams of a little girl, standing there, prey of her fancies, without being able to save her doll….prisoner of a cage of sorrow.
    Mandala that will be blown with the next storm and deformed by beach walkers, as soon and the new day will come .
    Wonderful experience…though, to tell the truth , it is suffocating to find the water there…up in the sky. I have done this trick many times, and know that it has a meaning. Simply…the sky does not flood. It is as fixed in our memory and the untouchable stars. Always in the same position, while the sea….the life in there…is another thing….yes, it belongs to the soul of feelings, and emotions, a truly active and close world of Life. Beautiful, Rhonda)

  • Love you!!!! Your interpretation takes my breath away. The sky being suffocating – yes, so possible with the girl hanging by her neck trying to balance everything around her while the walls of the world ooze their sticky dark tar. . . and while the child beacons… come here to the bird who sits there refusing to comply. . . and there the is the chimp who is so entertained by it all…
    Your thoughts make me think… THANK YOU Rosa….
