"I had heard someone say and so I said too, that ridicule is the most effective weapon. Well, now I know that there are things that never have been funny and never will be. And I know that ridicule may be a shield but it is not a weapon." Dorothy Parker


In his book *The Rag and Bone Shop of the Heart,* Robert Bly says that to
be wild is not to be crazy like a criminal or psychotic, but 'mad as the
mist and snow." It has nothing to do with being childish or primitive, nor
does it manifest as manic rebellion or self-damaging alienation. The real
marks of wildness, he asserts, are a love of nature, a delight in silence, a
voice free to say spontaneous things, and an exuberant curiosity in the
face of the unknown. courtesy of Rob Brezsny and Free Will Astrology

The Enso is a Japanese Zen calligraphy used to meditate on and to " ... symbolise[s] enlightenment, strength, elegance, the universe, and the void; ... As an "expression of the moment" it is often considered a form of minimalist expressionist art." wikipedia

This space will be encouraged to continually evolve ... expanding and contracting.

Posting original art, photography and writing ... as well as thoughts ... is encouraged.


Please be mindful and remember that without the sociological gift of vocal inflection and body language - such as, eyebrow risings, winks, sly grins, 'nudge-nudges', astonished gasps, and so forth - that words alone can be easily taken out of context. Therefore, the judicious use of emoticons and [*smile*] worded intent of conveyance is appreciated. ... Unless you want to be misconstrued ... then, by all means ... *bows* *grins*

Hmmmmm ... as I said, things will evolve in time ... let's just start the journey here ...
