Op-Ed: “Dream”

OP-ED-UNIQUE EXPRESSION-INSPIRATION

 Rant of the Week

Experience.  Dream.  Risk.  Close one your  eyes  and  jump. Enjoyed  the  free-fall.   Choose  exhilaration  over comfort. Choose a magic over predictability.  Choose potential over safety. Wake up to the magic of everyday life.  Make friends with your intuition. Trust your gut.  Discover the beauty of uncertainty. Know yourself fully before you make promises to another.  Make millions of mistakes so that you will know how to choose what you really need. Know how to hold on and when to let go.  Love hard and often and without reservation. Seek knowledge.  Open yourself to possibility. Keep your heart open, your head high and your spirit free. Embrace your darkness along with your light.  The wrong every once in a while, and don’t be afraid to admit it. Awaken to the brilliance of ordinary moments.  Tell the truth about herself no matter what the costs.  Own your reality without apology.  See goodness in the world.  Be bold.  Be fierce.  Be grateful.  Be wild.  Crazy and gloriously free.  Be you. Go now, and live.

Post Wednesday 19th November 2014

“Shaped by Time” is a time-lapse film that explores the power of nature through the erosion of the different landscapes shown on the film. It is an exceptional visual presentation. It seems quite heavenly & awe-inspiring, so much so, it takes my breath away, and I do believe it will have similar effects to anyone viewing this magical imagery. The majesty of time over the dimensions of its wearing down the solid matter of Earth and on into the Firmament.  ps. the Thursday Post following this one is created by the same artist. He tells the story of his art & shows magnificent samples of many visual amazements of Earth through his timelapse method of photography. <3 jkm

“Shaped By Time” Enrique Pacheco

“Shaped by Time” During thousands of years, the wind, the eruptions, the rain, the frost and the water of the rivers, have shaped these wonderful landscapes, going beyond the natural and becoming art work of monumental proportions.

wild visions
artistic expression
feel the art moving through you
awakening your senses of spirit and creation
letting go of falling free fall through the creative atmosphere
it will bring you alive inside
let yourself go until you can go no further
then stop and rest awhile
then begin again

Private Moments [Pre-Epilogue]

Which rightly should possess a poet’s brain.”

“they hear nothing”
By mt

They hear nothing
Eyes wider shut

An homage made
A mysterious end

Now evil enters
Return to stage

Know thy words
Nano particles filter in

Cinders sting the eyes
Blinding in their destruction

Consciousness altered
World of slaves

Masters return
With Unbroken chains

Never know imagination
Daydreaming thoughts

Worlds we build
Our minds now dismiss

Realness has been lost
The fantasy begins

The Tree of Life | Stay Alive | Jose Gonzales | Adrian Conlon – Editor

Stay Alive
by Jose Gonzales

There’s a rhythm in rush these days
Where the lights don’t move and the colors don’t fade
Leaves you empty with nothing but dreams
In a world gone shallow
In a world gone lean

Sometimes there’s things a man cannot know
Gears won’t turn and the leaves won’t grow
There’s no place to run and no gasoline
Engine won’t turn
And the train won’t leave

Engines won’t turn and the train won’t leave

I will stay with you tonight
Hold you close ’til the morning light
In the morning watch a new day rise
We’ll do whatever just to stay alive
We’ll do whatever just to stay alive

Well the way I feel is the way I write
It isn’t like the thoughts of the man who lies
There is a truth and it’s on our side
Dawn is coming
Open your eyes
Look into the sun as the new days rise

And I will wait for you tonight
You’re here forever and you’re by my side
I’ve been waiting all my life
To feel your heart as it’s keeping time
We’ll do whatever just to stay alive

Dawn is coming
Open your eyes
Dawn is coming
Open your eyes
Dawn is coming
Open your eyes
Dawn is coming
Open your eyes

Look into the sun as the new days rise
There’s a rhythm in rush these days
Where the lights don’t move and the colors don’t fade
Leaves you empty with nothing but dreams
In a world gone shallow
In a world gone lean

But there is a truth and it’s on our side
Dawn is coming open your eyes
Look into the sun as a new days rise

sun moon stars

[Passing the Open Windows]”

Poem Written by Jennifer Kiley

Poem for Chapter #80

“Depression passing [the open windows] ”
By Madison Taylor
17th March 2009

Depression

I have forgotten the feeling
It has been silent so long
For me time’s length
Is unmeasurable
It could be a moment
One hour
One minute
A second later
I just have not been feeling it

Sadness
And
Grief
Have passed my doorway
And returned

Too many times
Depression
Sticks around
Waiting

A slip will come
Darkness will fall
Demons
Real and false
images
Presenting
The worse
Routing
Through the mind

Favorite is to add confusion
Blocking out the heart
The emotions of the blind
The senses of the mind
They leave you to debate

Is it now?
Do I do it now?
