Best wishes for 2018 to all!


Best wishes to all my followers and visitors for a healthy happy peaceful new year!
I am taking this opportunity to thank all of you for your patience since the trouble I have been having starting afresh with a new computer and continuing to like comment and support this account all the way, through thick and thin.
It feels challenging after such a long time… I seem to have forgotten what was simple then.
Posting on other social medias from a mobile takes a second whereas with a blog I have to reduce pixels so as not to saturate its internal storage.
Anybody with info about storage and pixels which I might not be aware of, please send it my way, it’ll be greatly appreciated!
I will try to post regularly in order to keep this blog as updated as my Facebook https://www.facebook.com/Life-Paintings-489714007854314/                        my Facebook timeline at SummerGreenwoods and Instagram account at Life_paintings https://www.instagram.com/life_paintings/?hl=nl                Meanwhile I’d really appreciate if you could go check my recent works there.

Thank you!

On the second photo, the painting is just finished & is drying off.
I want to take this opportunity to thank you all for your kind likes & comments, without your constant encouragement I wouldn’t be here, on this blog today, showing you my work, I probably wouldn’t have persevered!

Fuchsia /ˈfjuːʃə/ is a genus of flowering plants that consists mostly of shrubs or small trees. The first, Fuchsia triphylla, was discovered on the Caribbean island of Hispaniola (present day Dominican Republic and Haiti) in about 1696-1697 by the French Minim monk and botanist, Charles Plumier during his third expedition to the Greater Antilles. He named the new genus after the renowned German botanist Leonhart Fuchs (1501–1566).[2][3]

Good times, what a blessing! Nov. 2012 ( oa essay )


Good times... ©copyright2013owpp

Good times…

This essay was coming out of the low moments as a result of doing what I have most pleasure in doing. Writing and painting and sharing it on the blog. Music and photography will have to wait until I start feeling more comfortable with those .

Good times
————-

Does it occur to us that sometimes our writings have a tremendous amount of despair or self-abuse described?
Writing is for everyone liberating. It is the first thing that comes to our mind when hurt gnaws at us. At the end of the page we feel cleansed.
But could we focus for once on the times rays of rationality beam through? The days we tuck in fourteen hours of work, feel tired but so alive?
Get so absorbed in our task that we forget about food and eat solely for the physical energy. What a blessing, what a truce! So much easier than the fight.
What about the enthusiasm, the love and joy we spread around, the closeness to our cherished ones and the protective wings we encircle them with, the peace felt, by doing small and seemingly insignificant tasks that feel grand to us?
Small is sometimes big.
Is that not a far brighter subject?
The saying goes “without obscurity we would not see the light“
Appreciation comes from the lack of… Had we not gone without in the past, how could we know what is here now?

This essay is dedicated to all those in recovery. To a world of people who have the courage and audacity to face and work on their imperfections, which everyone has.

To them I bow and wish to give an apercu, a glimmer of what can be, with a bit of tenacity.

Be strong, do not bend to what you would call our darker moments yet, be flexible and undulate with the current, it will lead you to quiet sparkles, to serene bliss and undetected Nirvana.

Can we believe? I do.

That is the journey I took many years ago. Every year I believe I have found all the truth that exists and every year I am proved wrong. There is always some more…

There are many ways that lead to Rome. To a few, it will be wisdom, others, knowledge or experience, which is the best teacher of all, it will lead you to the light brought by comprehension… To that instant of clarity, the split second where it all fits…

The doors open and you walk in a state of…

Life is worth living for, the past trials were all worth it, for this inner-discovery. No loud trumpets, no explosive fireworks, just, THIS… NOW…

And that is all that matters.
