Realms of the partially visible


Realms of the partially visible

In the alleys of the old city~ Shanghai

So much of what we base our lives on and let influence almost every step of our daily goings on lies in realms we cannot touch, see, feel or even comprehend. We eat because of ‘hunger’, we sleep due to ‘exhaustion’, we give because of ‘care’, we sacrifice because of ‘love’, we run because of ‘fear’, we procreate because of ‘passion’, we create because of ‘art’, …

All of these qualities, essences, emotions, we are not able to fully comprehend let alone define. I read somewhere (I think it was in the book ‘a brief history of everything’ ) that it is creativity that causes cosmos and not chance. If we were to be really creative as we were meant to be and to be instrumental in bringing new realms from the universe to where we are for human race enhancement, then shouldn’t we be using our utmost creativity, mind, soul and honed skills to do that rather than just being and hoping it will happen by itself, by chance?

Weren’t we gifted with our faculties in the hope that we would use a bit more than 10% of this incredible human machinery?

For the love and search of Art…

  1. They are blind who will not see….

  2. Wow, Mimo, this one is arresting. I’m developing a deep fondness for the out-of-focus. Spectacular blues and browns smoodging together here, too.

  3. As I have come to expect, very good words. Good connection between searching and creativity in light of the bike and the blur.
