Fabulous colours, look good against the very dark water.
vz-nostalgia: Just basics of color theory, Ms. Ellie. smile

so far from ground and lost in the masses
this fragile leaf has spent its life
all bound to a branch of various chances
in longing for the final flight.

then time did come and weakend the branches
a golden breeze released the bonds
the leaf took off and with graceful dances
it floated through the air of delight.
vz-nostalgia: A chapter of being one of many is closed for him, Ms. Iris. Now, he’s on the journey through his Second Life, floating, swirling, flirting with the fishes in the magic waters of the River. smile

her hand in
autumn water
vz-nostalgia: smile
Sera: i love the green and yellow.
VZ: Something to think about, when you design your new dress, Ms. Sera. smile

Sera:
mottled
her hand in
autumn water
VZ:
...cold
still she enjoys
the water rushing through her fingers...

Without friends - where's the hope in that Vik?
vz-nostalgia: Many find hope in solitude, even if it lasts one hundred years, Chris. smile

Journeys that start alone don't always finish alone...
vz-nostalgia: Eight words of wisdom, Ray. smile
Floating aimlessly in the river,
Alone, she starts to shiver,
The journey starts,
It warms her heart,
A second chance,
Of life's Romance.
Her story begins.
vz-nostalgia: "... a second chance of life's romance..." That's pretty good, Ms. Linda. You go, girl. smile
I like it. Makes you think about the universe and things coming and going
vz-nostalgia: I think you just touched the eternal, Ms. Maid. smile
gorgeous! the color does really pop against the water.
vz-nostalgia: I see no reason why it shoudn't, Charles. smile If someone has something worthwhile to show to the world (in leaf's case, its color), why not? smile

Drifting in your shady memories
Where to go when sorrow breeds
Let the fear run through
Breath in black and stiffling air
All those words they disappear.

Amorphis
vz-nostalgia: "Amorphis"... jesus... Who would ever guess that Louis into an obscure metal music. smile How is teh world did you discover them, Louis? Have you traveled to Helsinki lately? smile
Drifting on the waves of destiny...so beautifully.
vz-nostalgia: At times, all we need is just let it go and drift, Ms. Delia. smile
I get the feeling of something final when looking at this photo. Well balanced.
vz-nostalgia: Well, it's a final journey for the leaf, Pekka. It might be a short and tragic one: into the depth of the merky waters, or a playful and enjoyable one, dancing on teh waves until it hits the ocean. smile

There is only one life we are granted with - the leaf looks wonderfully colourful, it has fully lived having got some damages, but still one leaf alive - but now it is driving to its end- that is absolutely sure -and when dying -I fear- we are probably alone?
A beautiful picture - you could stop the leaf's move down - for some frozen moments! But the end is irrestible!
vz-nostalgia: :
Philine: There is only one life we are granted with...
VZ: Oh my... and I thought you, as a true Christian, believe in resurrection, Ms. Philine. smile

Philine: ...and when dying -I fear- we are probably alone?
VZ: All depends, Ms. Philine. Some die alone, some do so surrounded by loving family and friends. Some are scared to death of the arrival of a final breath, while others welcome death with a feeling of relief. smile
we are always alone!
vz-nostalgia: I see you and Ms. Veronique are on teh same page, so I refer you to my response to her. smile

How I discovered them? Nauras Minelmio introduced me to Sigur Rós (the post rock Icelandic band)with some epic lyrics amongst them. Not that I understand Icelandic, but in modern times one can get hold of translations - especially since they toured abroad.
When in turn I introduced another friend of mine to Sigur Rós he thought that I might like Amorphis the metal rock band from Finland that bases a lot of their repertoire on the Kalevala (Finnish heroic epic). I am still exploring them and the Kalevala.
vz-nostalgia: Sigur Ros started to sing on Islandic only recetly, Louis. Before, they sung on a made-up language, the words of which don't mean a thing. I don't think the rest of teh world noticed the difference. smile I saw them a few years ago. See if you can find their ticket here:

We studied the Kalevala epic on teh world literature class in high school. smile
For all of us sure.
vz-nostalgia: Do you think you have the right to speak for all of us, Ms. Stef? smile
The way I see things, we are alone, as beings, on several levels.
Physically, we are born alone and we die alone; we can't share that experience with any Other.
Also, we can't directly share our minds with someone else. No one will ever be able to "look" into my mind and see the structure of what I am, the way I see it.
This type of "alone" I am talking about is a good thing. We have to know who we are if we want to share ourselves.

(I am sure you know, but I will say it anyway, I am not talking here about alone as "not in a relationship")

But we aren't "meant" to be alone. We strive for togetherness.
So there is (along with other things I might've left out in this li'l comment gone long - like love, for example) a wonderful language that everybody seems to understand called creativity.
I think creativity makes us less alone, because it helps us share ourselves that way.
And, from a personal perspective, creativity made me step into my Second Life.
vz-nostalgia: :
Dori: No one will ever be able to "look" into my mind and see the structure of what I am...
VZ: Sure, I can't look into your mind, but I can tell who you are by observing what you say, and, more importantly, what you do. smile

Dori: We have to know who we are if we want to share ourselves.
VZ: Yep. And when we reach the point of knowing who we are, our strong sides and weaknesses, we don't need someone else tell us how good or how bad we are. That's when teh praises become irrelevat.

Dori: ...I am not talking here about alone as "not in a relationship"...
VZ: I figured that out. smile

Dori: But we aren't "meant" to be alone. We strive for togetherness.
VZ: Yep again. no one can survive alone, that's why we gathered together first into tribes, then into villages, then cities, countries... smile

Dori: I think creativity makes us less alone,
VZ: Well, here I look at things differently, Ms. Dori. Most of us like to be left alone during the creative process, be it writing a book, painting a picture, or composing a tune. On teh final stage, when you're done with your creation, it all depends on what you're going to do with it.. If you create to show to others, it's one thing, then yes, you need an audience. If you create for teh sake of the creative process itself, to feel good, that's a totally different thing then. smile
Oh yes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
vz-nostalgia: Looks like you are looking at this picture in your bedroom, Ms. Mela. smile
