Many thanks to artist AYMEN TABIB for featuring 'America Free Falling' in the artists group RED AND BLUE.

Anita talks a whole lotta sense. If you want to make clear why people need to have ideals and values, that's the way to do it. And the frank summation of corruption and cynicism down here is just so. I live in Spain and it's a lot like that here. People here cannot see that regarding honesty, hard work and community ideals as foolishness is what keeps a country down. Look at Russia : all that money being made there but what about the people? Entrenched in poverty and cynicism, turning day by day to nationalist hubris as a substitute for working together as a nation and a community to build an honest society for hard-working people. The contempt for the honest, hard-working person, and the exploitation of that person is at the root of the failure of many societies, despite however much money might be made by some.

This design and these colors made me think about the portrayal of this image as being about the USA being in "free fall," which does feel right. There are so many ways in which it is out of control and the election is coming up which couldn't have any two parties being more definitively opposed to one another on every possible subject. Who wins could change the course of the US for many years to come, including the arena of women's rights, as well as equal rights in general, not to mention the future of the environment, the middle class, etc. Thought provoking image! v/f

Nice feel of floating through the air v/f

mmmm.....
