Ohmygaaad - it's the apocalypse Vik style!
vz-nostalgia: Do you think the kindness of hearts will win over the sharpness of needles, Chris?

No one will mistake them for candy hearts, Viktor!
vz-nostalgia: not all the hearts are as sweet as candies, Ms. Ginnie. On other hand, not all the needles strive to prick us in the butt. smile

Love always was a minefield, but that is positively hazardous
vz-nostalgia: :
zed: love always was a minefield...
vz: still is, and we often move through it blindfold. smile

Love it...are those thorns?
vz-nostalgia: Do you keep a few in your heart as well, Ms. Ada? smile

A sombre illustration of the madness of 9/11.

Wonderful image, though!
vz-nostalgia: An old friend of mine didn't make it from the tower, Ray.
The Irony of Love.

Simply wonderful, my friend. smile
vz-nostalgia: More like my love of the irony, Ms. Faithless. smile

Love is a risky but mostly unavoidable business..... you take your chances.
Powerful image here VZ smile
vz-nostalgia: It's a chemical reaction in our brain we have no control over, SAVO. smile
It is hard to believe it is 8 years since I sat and watched the horror of 9/11 unfold in front of me on a television screen. We were used to terrorist attacks after 30years of the IRA and I was living in Birmingham when the pub bombings happened. Those who fund terrorism are as guilty as the terrorists who plant the bombs.
vz-nostalgia: Terrorism always was an inherent part of the human society thoughout its history, Bill. We know more about the terrorist acts of the last couple of centuries, because people started tracking them. Wonder, how it will evolve in the future, as it's pretty clear that killing innocent people doesn't bring much to the plate of terrorists. I bet in the future their targets will be big chunks of electrical grids, computer networks of major financial institutions and big cities utilities and so on.
Who knows what the solution is. There always will be someone out there blaming others for their own failures.

i see love beating thorns...
i had noticed one heart,on the left, being crossed by one thorn but still standing straight...would be nice to see a close up of it...wink

'not sure what hurts the most
the thorns of your love
or the thorns of your oblivion...
your love hurts sometimes
but i know i can stand;
your oblivion i can't stand
because it makes me feel
we were never "one"...' (k.a. 11/09/09.- 3:25 am my time)

(was it a "good example of that. A proof, so to speak"????)
vz-nostalgia: :
KA: i see love beating thorns...
vz: because you want to see love beating thorns, Ms. KA. Others might see thorns beat the crap out of love. All is open for interpretations. smile and that's teh way I like it. smile
KA: would be nice to see a close up of it...
vz: too late for close ups, Ms. KA. Enjoy it as a whole. smile

Ms. KA,
At 3:25 am my mind would never come up with such brilliant lines:
"not sure what hurts the most
the thorns of your love
or the thorns of your oblivion..."

You made your point. smile

The hearts seem to be winning in this battle Viktor!
vz-nostalgia: Depends on the point of view. Ms. Ingrid. I see you are an optimist. smile

There is no tragedy here. These hearts are whole and unbroken. The thorn stands side by side with the heart..allies and partners in the rhapsody of love.
They go hand in hand. One without the other is like a symphony without notes.
vz-nostalgia: I doubt that you studied in depth the works of Karl Marx and Fridrich Engels, Ms. Suzanne, but you essentially repeated what they wrote on the law of opposites, stating that EVERYTHING that surrounds us in this world is a combination or unity of opposites and this is a source of a motivation for a constant movement in the universe. Actually, Hegel said the same thing way before them: "Contradiction in nature is the root of all motion and of all life." smile
Regarding your musical analogy, I must say that without notes there would be no symphony, period (unless we talk about a symphony of emotions smile). smile They are not the opposites. They are the same thing in different incarnations. If we talk about opposites in music, that would be the notes and the silence between the notes. A good composer treats both with the same respect. smile
An expression of the fine line between two sides of the coin.

vz-nostalgia: by the coin you mean a US dollar, Richard? smile
I really like this comp-nice job!
vz-nostalgia: You got a warning for breaking the First Law of Nostalgia, Ms. Dawn. smile

I don't want to think about/ to decode what you might have depictured- but I know that it was an apocalyptic day (11st September since that the world has changed for ever)! And it would be an apocalytic day (I'm using the conjunctive) if "the hearts fell down on needles or the needles fell down the hearts" - it would be the end of human life, of friendship, love, confidence, trust, respect, tolerance..., in any case a world where I don't want to live in!
We do experience enough little or bigger hurts, events or persons in our life who "uns einen Stich ins Herz gegeben haben" (as we say in German)/have really hurt us- but fortunately I have the talent to forget, forgive, or to push away often the unpleasant personal experiences. And the time is a graceful healer- but not always!
I like some comments- e.g. "the irony of Love, oh yes, I remember Amor with his arrow! And also the love of VZyrony of course! But the serious message of this pic might be the first one, and I find it very good that you let us think of that 11st September- always again!
stunning image Victor, sorry to hear one of your friends was sadly lost that day, problem,reaction,solution, i think you know what i meansmile
vz-nostalgia: oftentimes, what we think is a solution becomes an even bigger problem, Tim.

Worrysome. Or the other view is that they are well protected hearts.
vz-nostalgia: As an old Chinese saying goes "keep your friends close, and your enemies closer", Louis? smile

So when you pick the handsome flower
Don't forget the thorn upon the rose
Its cut is deep and the scar lasts forever
It follows love wherever love goes
vz-nostalgia: Had no idea you are a fan of Mary Black, Paul. Always thought you're into jazz. smile
Wonderful imagery here to contrast the thorns against the hearts. I like the use of black and white. It makes the thorns (white) stand out even more against the hearts (black).
vz-nostalgia: You got all technical here, Duane. smile

armed hearts - maybe the better way wink
vz-nostalgia: smile I'm not sure one can win many friends with weapons, Daniela, but with a kind heart, for sure. smile

even a kind & loving heart needs protection sometimes.
vz-nostalgia: A heavy armor of thick scales would be a best protection for a kind and loving heart, Ms. Daniela. smile

vz-nostalgia: Did you find your thorn among the kind hearts? Or was it your lost heart you found among the thorns, Ms. Mariana?
