Luke Moore replied:

Much appreciated my friend! I have not had the desire or energy yet to advocate and get more involved yet. However, if I can make a few people think or question... then that is good enough for me at this moment. Thank you again for taking time to leave such an inspiring comment here :)

Better believe I wear that permethrin spray now while in the woods...don't need any other diseases from a tick :(

Many do not realize that dog ticks, and dog fleas can transmit Lyme Disease.

Luke Moore replied:

Your comment is greatly appreciated Joseph. The information that the CDC, the public, and the medical community have is so outdated and incorrect... It's not even funny. I hope things will change in the next 5-10 years. I heard they recently found a new tick borne disease they can't identify yet, definitely scary to me. I have Lyme and a co infection called Bartonella and they can't even diagnose or treat those effectively half the time.

This is is a powerful piece... your use of motion blur with the layers of imagery to bring the viewer's eye to the green ribbon is exceptionally well done. You have shown us a fractured reality yet you have risen above it through your creativity. You are an inspiration, Luke. f/v

Luke Moore replied:

Your comment means a lot to me...thank you for taking the time to leave one on this particular image!

Wonderful image Luke, very powerful statement and late on congratulation on your sale!! f/v

Luke Moore replied:

Much appreciated Yumi! My girlfriend bought this one and it's in our apartment. Looks awesome on the matte finish canvas. It's nice to have something that I worked on very hard, hanging up in my own living space.

What a powerful statement Luke...brilliantly portrayed...and yes...Lyme Disease is a crippling friend is suffering with it...and as you say...better days and bad days...superb work! f/v

Luke Moore replied:

Thank you Jolanta! Your comments really hit home, thanks for leaving them here :) I hope your friend gets to a point where she is doing better. I will keep her in my thoughts! I'm doing the best I have done in 7 years, still have bad days and weeks, but have made lot's of progress. Fingers crossed. I really feel like I didn't have any creativity, energy, or headache-free or pain-free days for about 5 years. I've been having so much fun taking photos and thinking in that frame of mind.

Wow - powerful! Love what you did with the photos!

Luke Moore replied:

Thanks George!

Awesome image Luke. A truly power statement - I know Lyme Disease is real. V/F and a late congrats on your sale.

Luke Moore replied:

Thank you Bob! Hopefully I can help to increase awareness about Lyme. Hoping to create a few more like this one. I keep saying that, I have yet to sit down and do it lol...soon though. Have a good one Bob.

Awesome image!!

Luke Moore replied:

Greatly appreciated Jerry :) Thank you.

Thank you Susan!! :)

Great artwork Luke, congratulations on your sales! v/f

Luke, by the way, congratulations on your sale... I did not read far enough down:) I too hope you are managing this OK and that they will invest time and money into research.

Luke Moore replied:

I HOPE so too...there are a number of diseases out there that we need more research on and Lyme Disease is definitely one of those. I'm hoping to create a couple more pieces that are centered around Lyme. We'll see if time and whatever else allows :)

As Patricia said... powerful statement Luke... great piece of art. A definite F/V from me and a Tweet to spread the word further.

Luke Moore replied:

Thank you Kaye! You are the best :) I really appreciate you taking the time to comment and tweet too.

WOW! what a story(hope you will be alright) and how magnificent your talent! congrats on your sale and triple congrats!

Luke Moore replied:

Doing ok, doing better than I was several years ago. It's quite a long process for sure. Good days and bad days, good weeks and bad weeks. Finally got to the point more recently where I had more creativity and felt like creating or taking photographs. Kimberleigh- thank you so much for your comment and positive words!

Nice one Luke, and congrats on the three sales as well! V/F!

Luke Moore replied:

This one was intense and exciting all at the same time. Appreciate it Dean!

Luke Moore replied:

Thanks Zeana!

Congratulations on your sale!

Luke Moore replied:

Thank you Pg!

This is a very powerful documentation to Lyme victims. It is a very deep photo. I like the multi- facets of the layering of all the photos. It speaks so much..

Luke Moore replied:

Thank you Kathleen! That was definitely my intention :) Thank you for your feedback!
