July 29, 2017 - You Can Do Anything

“The secret to change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new.” (Found in video).

The music is the soundtrack to the documentary movie, ‘The Eagle Huntress’.

July 29, 2017 - Army of Ink – Just One More

Army of Ink Just One More Day Final

Just one more …

It’s hard when things end.  When you really, really want them to keep going.  To last forever.

I think this ‘Ink’ could be suggesting an eventual shrinking of the loss.  An end to the slide.  And perhaps even new growth in herself.  Her arrival and the hopeful spin on her meaning was influenced by the music and message above and below.  The quote (in the post above, and this ‘Ink’) seem to be suggesting  … the secret to change could well be in the building?

 

June 3, 2017 - Army of Ink Only One Left

Death final 2

Sometimes she lost sight of hope. 

Then….a Good Man lead her to a painting called ‘Hope’…..

 

hope

Pre-Raphaelite Artist Edward Burne-Jones 1896

Hope is seen seated on a globe, blindfolded, with only one string in her lyre.  Yet even with that one string, music still has to be possible.

“Hope need not mean expectancy. It suggests here rather the music which can come from the remaining chord”

G.F. Watts

In the wake of the Manhattan tragedy, it seems a good time to share this one.  Please pass her (and the hope) on.

Amelia Bloom arrived in response to the attack on Charlie Hebdo in Paris.  She also carries a message of hope worth sharing.  Click on her link and please pass Amelia and her message on…..

March 5, 2017 - With Intergrity

the inch

A n   I n c h .

It is my integrity that is important.

Is that so selfish?

It sells for so little,

but it’s all we have left in this place.

It is the very last inch of us,

but within that inch

we are free.

 

(R.I.P. Big Brother.  I know you liked this one.  Words by Alan Moore.)

November 9, 2015 - Army of Ink Will Everyone Please Stop Smiling

army of ink smily face 3

What’s with all the smiley faces – things are really not that great.

The one thing she disliked most was false optimism.   And it was popping up everywhere, particularly in text and email messages 🙂  Sometimes people even shouted happiness :)!  But was all this just a disguise?  Were people really that happy?  She sensed the world increasingly turning away from those who weren’t feeling all that happy right now and opting for the pretense of living fairy tale lives:)  That made her sad. 🙁

See this Rose who is free from the labor of smiling.  This Rose about dealing with all matters of the emotional kind.  This Rose who is curious about the origin of sadness.

Pass her on because….you never know who’s feeling sad out there but are struggling to find a ‘sadness friendly’ place.
