Life is full of goodbyes, of seasons, years and even night and days, The eternal loop we lives in. But Goodbye to one thing is Hello to that which follows. Thanks for your comment!

I like this. :) I'm often told that my work is "creepy" but I think there's a resonance to deep, meaningful work that not everybody perceives. When I see this, I'm immediately transported to a summer house in New England. Death and ice and all sorts of other things come to mind, but not necessarily "a person's death". More like the death of a season, or moment perhaps. The sun's going down makes me think of a cold, dark period approaching. This is moving work. :) I like it very much.

Thank you very much Lenore! Yes creativity nourishes the child in us. Adults are a little boring for a child :-)

Green Lane, PA - United States

I do think your description is perfect. We allow ourselves to be turned away from these small miracles by the weight of the cares of everyday life. You said it well, children are generally the ones to see all things as wondrous and beautiful, and you were right that we all, at times, regret the loss of this special "sight". Maybe we should include artists here, too; they see things others pass by.

Carol, I had to start again, made it so very wrong with a word that should not be there. You are quite right Carol, we have different phases in life, where different things are important. Seems you are back to childhood wonder. Thanks for you comment!

Instant vote and fave. I always am attracted to frames within the frame. I cannot possibly say any better what has already been said by so many fine artists and friends. I, too, believe that creation is the key to healing. It allows us to get out of our minds, the danger of living too long in the adult world.

Meadows Of Dan, VA - United States

Touches my heart, deeply. Daily life can get so busy sometimes we forget to live it...then something traumatic may happen and bring back into focus what and who is really important in our lives. Life is precious and short. Your work is beautiful and inspiring. V/F

Your description is a good one, Gun. As a youngster, nothing escaped my notice - not the leaves, streams, bugs, snakes, rocks - nothing was too small to love and get excited about. Then came the teen years, boys, angst, school, all that awful stuff, and I didn't bend over to pick up that lovely leaf anymore or admire the crane fly on the screen. When our son was tiny, everything was a miracle to him - his delight in his world reopened our eyes. Then, as he grew up, we again got sidetracked by daily life - the rushing to work, rushing home, news, weather, finances, name it and it intruded on the wonder of the world around us. I retired, bought a simple camera and - miracle of miracles - it turns out I also got a new set of eyes. Perhaps we need to constantly find challenges that produce wonder in the results - new things to explore, new visions. Change can be good! You've done an extraordinary job with this image:>) V/F

Rosy, surely it will pass and come back (bipolar life) but as long I have my creativity nothing really matters.

Bollebygd - Sweden

Thank you so very much Sharon! I also think of all the wonderful macro photographers, who show us things we just walk by. They show us tiny pieces of something bigger, Surely here is an abundance of things to get inspired of here!

wonderful work ! v/f

Gun dear, whatever is troubling you now I hope will pass. Like you art is my 'lifesaver' sometimes the only one - and I have used that exact word :) May you continue to create wonder-filled art for many years to come. God bless your eyes sweet lady.

Gun, it's artists like you and so many others here who open our eyes to the old wonders and help us realize the new ones as well. Sometimes our busy lives make us forget to stop and smell the roses. as every child will do. You are a brilliant artist my friend. and I don't know any who can express themselves as beautifully as you do. In fact I think you express the feelings of all of us.

Bollebygd - Sweden

Thank you very much Lianne! As you see in my answer to Rosy, it is when I create I can live in the now. The child is there almost all of the time. Maybe the declining of eyesight and hearing of this vehicle that is my body plays a role. It is rather old you know :-) I am happy you like my image, I did like to do it!

Bollebygd - Sweden

Thanks Rosy! You made me think of that intense concentration when I create, I am in the now, but clocktime rushes and suddenly I am in the middle of the night :-) Yes, in time of good mood the world still is full of wonder, not just right now, Life is a rollercoaster with its up and downs, but happily my creativity works in all mood. My lifesaver I will call it.

Strykersville, NY - United States

Everything about this is moving, meaningful and not a little haunting. Yes, as adults we tend to forget the wonder of childhood and yet, clearly as your description indicates, we are at some level aware that we are not living life in the present moment, with wonder and reverence as we could and should. And that's all it takes - that moment of remembering, of consciousness and awareness to return us to joy. This is a magnificent work of art Gun - I'd favorite it over and over. I hope your day is full of joyful surprises and awe inspiring moments!!

I know what you mean Gun. But childlike wonder can still take my breath away. Scientists can explain the 'what' of a sunset, but nothing can remove the joy and wonder unless we allow it. BUT... and I suspect this is what you refer to ... children have the capacity to be lost in the minutia ... that tiny ant doesn't seem quite so tiny to a small human being, but a fascinating creature with a busy life of mystery. My thought is, that is why we as adults are still drawn to intricate drawings :) It's a reminder of how we were able to lose ourselves in the details. :) Hope this response isn't too long. I love your image especially the web as it too is a miniature world and home. VF

No problems Odd, my early summes are really forgotten, try to enjoy the rainy one we have :-)

A beautiful but slightly sad image. Instead of thinking about long gone Summers you should live the one you are in as fully as possible.
