LUNACY

LUNACY

Perception, a strange yet factual concept. Truth does not necessarily amount to factual content. Again, it’s all about perception. Let’s take serendipity for example. Is certainly is a factual word (the dictionary doesn’t lie), yet some people don’t believe in it. That would then make it untrue, in their minds. If you are a believer of serendipity, your idea of such an occurrence could gravely differ from that of another believer’s. This then brings us back to perception. I’m not one to spoon feed anyone information so use your imagination. Point being, perception is a fact. The truth of any perception is not a fact per se. What it basically boils down to is that the more we contemplate various points of view, be they fact, fiction or even plausible, dwelling too much on such topics can cause madness to ensue. This can then become the most serendipitous revelations of all, hence this writ. Then again, it could have you committed and certified… Again – perception!
P.S. Don’t let the fear of madness stop you from thinking further than what’s presented in books and texts and scribes. I.e. be a little mad!

The power of random

The power of random

RANDOM THOUGHTS – THE UNDERSTATED JEWEL OF CREATIVITY.
If you’ve woken up from a dream that made absolutely no sense, not even starring anyone you’ve ever seen in person or crazy looking creatures. You’ve probably wondered, “Holy fudge brain, what were you thinking?” And then there are the daily random, seemingly irrelevant thoughts that pop up in our minds, only to discarded because WHAT THE HELL WAS THAT ALL ABOUT! Perhaps this is because of conventional conditioning, as in stick to the rational; if it makes no sense then it must be non-sense! Bull twang! What if those random pop ups are our creative and intuitive ideas trying to get our attention. We might not know what the message is yet or what to do with them. But if you push them to one side, you’ll never know. All works of art, be it music, writing, hell anything creative, are born out of randomness. So next time a fleeting random thought flashes through your mind, give it a little more attention. You never know where it could take you and if anybody dares to call you batshit crazy for having them, well the jokes on them… can’t imagine a life with no creative thoughts no matter how irrelevant or seemingly insignificant they may be. Embrace the random – if not for the pioneers of the afore mentioned, we would be “admiring” blank pieces of art, bland food an oh so dull and underwhelming books. So go on, dance with the random, there’s much fun to be had…

Abstract Beauty

Abstract Beauty

ABSTRACT BEAUTY
The “abstract” in and of itself is somewhat difficult to explain, which I suppose explains it perfectly. Beauty on the other hand is a bit easier to describe, then again, beauty truly is in the eye of the beholder. So when it came to writing something entitled “Abstract beauty”, I thought “how the hell am I going to get this message across, sensibly but still somewhat accurately. I took some photos of objects in a way that would be described as being abstract. No they’re no Kandisky or Pollock (having not being painted & all), they did look very abstract though, and frankly I thought they were quite captivating if you’ll excuse the pun!
So instead of mulling about it the whole day, I let the boys in the basement do their thing and voila, synchronicity sets in. A friend mine (Sanet) posted a pic of her on social media and at first sight, I saw it as abstract beauty personified. Being that beauty is in the eye of the beholder (me in this case), how could I not use this for my daily topic. The picture is somewhat abstract, absolutely beautiful and because I know the model personally, it makes it that much more powerful and en point. To the untrained eye, at first glance it may just look like a distorted image. Upon closer inspection one will find that the picture, be it abstract as it may, is intoxicatingly beautiful. Drawing you in like a moth to a flame, wanting to see more, to know more. Feeling more and more with each glance.
When it comes to abstract art, I think the whole idea is to really let your mind overrule what your eyes may (or may not) see. Allowing you to experience a unique visual and any feeling it evokes. Therein lays the beauty of Abstract Beauty!
