Now, how's that for some Thursday morning cheer :o)
Kinda makes you wonder considering all the travails we and the rest of the world are going through now.
So in spite of this 'sanguine' image, y'all have a good one :o)
~ Love & Hugs ~

Somber but sweet! I love the subtle magic in the lower right corner. Another, similar quote, from SK's The Stand? "The world ended, not with a bang, but a sniffle.." Great artwork Mina!

I love this image, and the TS Eliot is perfect. (I believe he was right.)

I really see beauty here...hope I'm not missing your vision! I see devotion & seeking underneath the end of the world-vision that's also here too...Your figure is pointing down to a strangely beautiful pile of energies (and little lights) and it feels like there's pain in it, but there's a sumptuousness in the pile too, and it feels as if she's trying to coax light out of it, or even offer light to it. Her hands are in a traditional asking-pose, & like she's offering alms; and her face looks down with genuine compassion. She's in white too, and light is shining down on her. So, are you thinking, "what picture is he looking at?" It's just that you do cosmic dances, and this feels like devotion & beauty that goes beyond the darkness so present in the image. Let's put it this way: It feels like The Hollow Men with whispers of The Four Quartets whispering through it, and I feel real beauty in its darkness. I think it's a very touching image, truly...
