when i was young (& still now, of course) i had a fascination with small things - like beads, like these - perhaps i sensed they spoke to me, like i could leave pieces of my soul or find pieces of myself hidden within their depths - they were always so deep, though they were small...
yes!! i feenk in a way, our human fascination with material, with tangible things, stems from this magic, the repository we try to reach through to this 'somewhere,' those other worlds the call of lewis carroll...
you know i wonder all these months and still and maybe even more urgently now about "witch" becoming a "witch/hag" or letting her take me over trying "sort out" "find out" "let emerge" it's likely a "new" archetype or similar ... an old woman type
and try compare with former types/roles i know of like shaman, witch, herb woman, nun, little girl... try taptap what she is... what i may become
... hmm... see "mind" is included in german word "geist" (der Geist) it's a very important word in our culture... say this for completeness ... (Geist is such a wide, fuzzy field... yayyay) and i agree with you ... though we did not exchange in detail about this...
and aya aya this would lead to endless discussion yes yes ... let me try: personally find "spirit" (especially if it is big spirit, union, collective) is a kind of (very precise) intelligence... and connects us oh my blah
thank you for wonderful sunglomp! ... is bit our theme, yes? and can do...
thank you for your kindness, dear Dove!
... now you say there are so many out there reminds me of how easily we hug on-line (kind of shocked me at first... as felt it being a "lie") and is what we want and is very needed of course would be off-line too...

I had to. I guess I will draw them an Anna Map very soon. Even with crystal round explanations they didn't got the magical game. Shed won't let them do such.
Have I ever told you I just hate all the numbers below 10? Yep, I do. But I love this work so much, they will dream it until the end of my Membership! For that I'm sure.
Thank you for reminded me the simple order of the universal priorities, Sweet Angel You! So, I wasn't wrong when I felt you're the Angel of my Chaos... The simple order of the complicated things...you know it by sight, you know how to rearrange them to look..."into more clarity" as you say. Now that's deepen , into Shed's opinion. So, I guess, the thankful one here is me.

All games are easy, as long as one takes their magic seriously. How's that sounds? Like kids, ya know? When they're in this imaginary world and love very much to be there, just because they enjoy it, is very easy for them to stay involved and very hard to disconnect. They take their play as a concrete, serious matter. The same with artists who just love an work or another. Love involves feeling. Or playing is possible because of the feeling, playing is, actually, feeling. That's why kids love the games so much. Is not only understanding this word in a simple way, no, the game is their own chance to interact directly with feelings and know them one by one by intuition or imagination. Now, Thinking of this concrete relation between what Anna have done here and what we suppose to see, we first must open Anna's Map: 3 beads of different colours which for Anna mean something. Like a kid, I can imagine what they mean to me. If I do that, I might find an answer in the background of my mind too. Given to the piece my symbols, I take the game seriously and I can see what these 3 beads meant for Anna. Ok, now, when featuring Anna's work, Shed explained the first part clearly. These beads mean this this and this. Magical game. They didn't saw the magic. The connection between the colours and beads: red/heart, blue/spirit and yellow/sun.
They didn't played the game Shed proposed, they didn't got Anna's meaning, Shed very angry, because art is not only about pretty faces or pretty flowers behind a lens. Pulling off the symbols from a certain piece is the main..."job" of an artist. Since here is supposed to be many...well, Shed very upset, many do not "play" with art...they just pretend they do. Therefore they do not feel *they do not have the red bead, if you allow me to make this connection)
So...Anna, my dear, in another words, more cruel words, actually when I make a feature, especially for my watchers, I love more to see that a work or another from that list was loved (played/felt). They did't this time, but they will... Cause the red is red, in beads, in love, in art, no matter what.
Sorry if I may sound a little crazy, but, truly, expressions like "wow amazing!", "what what a beautiful journal!" written just to be written means nothing. I gathered the works, true, but those works belong to somebody, they have been put there with a reason, with a goal. "wow" without concrete support was not one of them. Not see? Said this way made all the magic to evaporate. I liked better when I said it like in a game. Sounded red! Looked magically yellow. Was clever blue! no?
yes and yes and yes very serious matter is play ... life too becomes very serious very light same time the more serious the more ethereal... really this is real...
and now look: feeling very real most real thing very ephemeral too... a thing and a *poof* thing... it endlessly -.---.--.-
magical game like glass bead game too magic and play play and magic very near each other in that light ethereal way ...
and of course always basic colors all colors from there no colors bw then all colors again other plane travel planes... yes?
emerges laozi... a-yay the 1 (dao) gives birth to the 2 (bw yin yang blah blah) the 2 give birth to the third the three give birth to the 10000 things LOL and ey me know me know Shed doesn't like dance numbers below 10 blah and blah conversation is play too... almost even deeper then a.. for anna
they do not have the red bead
your features are very special, Shed they are more than a.. your intention your flame your heart your will... your dance your play... well a new play too... -- emerges how you didn't add "by ..." in last and didn't allow comments i liked the impression it gave me all free to wander yes ...
no way not sound little crazy, yes? no way... we need sound little and little crazy and then bit more crazy and so on... there maybe disdain even... need go go deeper into deep forest see witches? see elves? see sprites? see... softly moving trees... eerie eerie deeper
when magic evaporates so sad so sad so sad... and what? let go of expectation... let the game find us let the magic find us anew anew now and now so easy fall ... into truer play
Sounded red! Looked magically yellow. Was clever blue! no?

Ephemeral you say.... Now, allow me to speak like Anna for a moment answering you: "ayay yay... very strong word this is" ... Very real, almost concrete, CRUSH Concrete, as concrete as what it may or it represents for each of us.
You know, peoples tend to think that, if something cannot be touched or seen, does not worth to much as value, in some cases. But the fact is, we cannot live without them, many of them. You said game, feelings, inspiration, rich connection, you said Star, dance, colour, you said... in fact that things like faves are passing by...are small ... and they cannot be... as deep as we sometimes think they are.
They´re important, true, I know you know, but Anna, they´re concrete things, given proves, no-doubtful proves, they are the only proves. Thinking from this point, we may say our life is ephemeral too, real but ephemeral... Or, is not. or, at least, is my opinion. From where I´m standing everything is forever and born this way to last, to be, to give a continuity, a round circle, a permanence, a clue for the existence. Feelings...some peoples feel less or they don´t feel at all, but the feeling is endless, never dies, never less valuable, feeling was born to be, just like stars, like a dance, like a smile. You may not smile tomorrow, but you´ll do it again one day, the smile IS there, as concrete and permanent as your desire to give it away... same with colors, games, Love, the entire Universe is like that: never ever ending, repeating itself over and over again, for each and everyone of us, for each and every single thing and particle and atom out there... The world never dies, Anna, the unwritten laws are in fact proves of history repeats itself because everything and anyone IS a given endless forever-entity.
You know we use to say that humans are dying...but are they, Anna? If I´ll die tomorrow am I dead for sure? (what´s sure anyway?) I also may say I´ve died too many times that I already know what´s out there, so...part from me, from my cells will live forever just because my child had this "Kindness" to keep The Me inside of his/her blood, as the child of my child will have the same Kindness and so on, so on... Is not the same maybe you´ll say... Why not? We all are what others have been before us, we may evolve, but we are what our parents were...like a photocopy, and better that the original...don´t you think? And, the most wonderful part is that my child, as his child will keep and have the same joys and toys I used to keep and have, with no change what so ever, his/her cells will function exactly as mine. I always said...I´m all my daemons because of this, by daemons include everything and anybody that was before me. Sometimes I even got this impression that I´ve already seen things and places I´m also pretty sure that are new. Gosh...is such a looooooooooong, never ending subject...
give birth to 10000 things, yes Anna, yes, but without them nothing would be out there, isn´t it? all emerges, yes, but is without end and the only permanence this entire universe knows for now. DOn´t you think?
If I let go to that...how can I redefine myself, Anna? Who and what would I be, can be? Letting go is some sort of illusion, generally speaking. I expect each and every moment to the unexpected... now I expect so much sometimes that I can even be considered by some as not being rational any more. Me the fool... I love this, ya know? I do...is just another way or releasing my emotions, to let them exist, continue, express, just because they are not all mine, because they are not ephemeral, either ethereal, Anna!
Now, I understood very well what you meant and I thank you for the advice, I also wanted to explain a little how some things go with me here. Sometimes I refuse the given, the stated, sometimes I want to force... the BE, the IS, the numbers below 10, the after all... And I you!
impatient write now and best want not even reread but dutifully will do yes
hmm, let's see
CRUSH Concrete aha! yes we fine mind spirit nerved europeans... can be too crush almost at times... and then fly fly high
only this word ephemeral in my mind and how you seem to speak for eternity -.-.- need reread this is clear
and i do...
not sure what you meant with your words about faves is wasted energy (feels anna subjective) strive for getting them for ourselves (well very different matter if you try get them for others images as Shed does...) or misdirected energy? well anna would not want judge so much she says that for herself and of course can be very deep is contact is touch is look is present... then anna does same as Shed... she wanders other gallery reads journal sees tries sense person, deviant, feeling and so on and then say something
and see we have this wording theme here ephemeral is fine for anna she doesn't mourn it on the contrary if can not cling with her mind to a concept to an expectation and look look now what emerges or let what emerges find her... then ephemeral simply gives space to new to what grows the baby instant... blah
and oh yes no end to becoming to emergence from source world ever giving birth to itself kind of... the wonderful vortex, fleece, rising...
see, we only stand bit different places in same room?
and smile always there in potential too... have been wondering about creativity and spirituality these months... and small small bird steps advance, sink seems... i like spring breeze smile and swim in it... float easy it's the one that accepts good and bad any now yay let me be childish and invoke it bit!
Shed we should have talked about daemons some month ago anna was very many questions into this... very stupid statement, yes? well... i also like hear you talk daemons now is Shed theme... and me went party with daemons for last 2 years kind of need talk with care aya... of course they're part of me and need get know and say hello and say ey, you here! and be no better... lala
no need shy of looooooong story we can tell and read too... listen...
(bit silly one )
this one is better:
yes see like you only permanence is how evolves (they sometimes say "change") totally mind boggling watch (bit literary that image... )
yes, we fools... and need be... need what for? to get deeper... into... life... death... all why deeper? erh... because is possible?
so, fool is a very good beginning for us in anna words it would mean "let go" (of concepts, of my dignity... blah) and yes of course... express sense and express... i want grow longer colorful awkward antennae of all kinds source will give me... taptap... sense inside outside both sense outside sense reaction, impulse inside and it to you ("you" is a variable to anna ,same as "i" the human we face...) and YOU would be Shed the soul space anna is invited to ... is you and i (any two yes) can share soul space... overlap bit... and the immediate is overlap bit then comes wild transform... open more soul space omb sorry for anna blah so superblah here... i guess you'll understand (the fact she blah's i mean )
Sometimes I refuse the given, the stated, sometimes I want to force... the BE, the IS, the numbers below 10, the after all... oh yes, please do, please keep doing... see... it's our duty and when you do you do for me (the variables "you" and "me", as well as Shed and anna of course)
good morning (ey proceeds so fast) and wish you nice (me no edit here... so forgive mistakes lapsus/lapses any... ok?)
