in a whirl

It will come back of its own accord. *

not alone

Surfing on the web and visiting some blogs I realize that while climbing my mountain, I’m not alone.

Candid’s and Karin’s blogs talk to me, talk about me. Talk about the things I have in my mind, things that happen now in my life. Strange coincidences ot not just coincidences.

I have to climb that mountain on my own, but I’m not alone.

new pencils

While testing my new pencils, in my mind I was hearing something I had read.

When my daughter was about seven years old, she asked me one day what I did at work. I told her I worked at the college - that my job was to teach people how to draw. She stared at me, incredulous, and said, "You mean they forget?"
~Howard Ikemoto

Yes, as we grow up, we forget.

The links we follow
Seems like a path
where at the other side
things find us.

We click on a link
and cling with wonderful people.

In that virtual world
there is something real

we see and been seen
even if we don’t know faces

we hear and been heard
even if we don’t know voices

we feel warm hugs
even we can’t touch

friends @ virtualworld.com
thank you !!!

A special thanks to Karin, for the silly smilling face she gave me with her e-mail and blog

Must have been ages since I last used wax crayons. Don’t want to count the years. Yesterday I should have been somewhere else. My friends wanted to see me, but I wasn’t in that mood. Instead of that , I choose to play with my watercolor pencils and wax crayons. Some weeks ago I bought them and till yesterday the box was closed. I colored a mandala I had printed and after finished it I wanted to test the crayons. What you see in the image above is what came up from it. Nothings special but I like those people – silhouettes

Different people. Great and small, like the ones livings inside us. People that can create good things or bad. People that are born to be leaders or followers. Different people, living in the same soul.

This reminds me of the hexagram 7 from the Book of Changes (Yi Jing) , The Army. Wilhelm’s translation says :

The army.
The army needs perseverance
And a strong man.
Good fortune without blame.

AN ARMY is a mass that needs organization in order to become a fighting force. Without strict discipline nothing can be accomplished, but this discipline must not be achieved by force. It requires a strong man who captures the hearts of the people and awakens their enthusiasm.

This is what an army needs. A strong General. To organize it, to make the rules and wisely assign each soldier to the proper position.

Well, what I was saying ???
Oh, yes, that the picture above is what it came up while I was testing my new wax crayons.

dancers in black

My first mandala.

It begun as a colorful one.

But then, dancers in black appeared.

No, they don't celebrate.

They just dance...
