Thought Process


A place of wonder is the mind
A record of life lived
Down to the last detail
Remembered or not
*
A place of light
Where ideas bloom
Music is composed
Art is created and words born
*
A pit of darkness
Where terror threatens
Panic lurks
Our monsters hide
*
Emotions flow from it's depths
Love consumes
Fear paralyzes
Peace liberates
*
Others are touched by our thoughts
As we move through time
But in our minds
We live alone

Beautiful, beautiful!

You are keeping all of this in a physical book, too... right? :)


Peace,

Wow! Beautiful! I wonder what kind of fun you would have with MRI images...

I studied your art work. That is very very powerful. Strands of remembered melodies, remembered beauty - the learning - the connecting, but as you remark in the last line of your lovely poem - we live alone in these minds. Mine is not always user friendly :0)

very effective, Pam. You're right, no matter how close we get to others we are still alone in our minds...both comforting and frightening.

I love the contrast between wonder and terror. You've captured the way our minds work ... and yes, ultimately we live alone in our heads.

Your art is incredibly powerful.

Pam--I enlarged the painting to see the details more clearly. By itself, worth a long study & contemplation.
I love the minds producing music, books, beauty in butterflies.

Tammy - Thanks, sometimes the ideas for expressing my feelings come with ease, sometimes not. But passion for life, art, everything is always at the ready.

I love you too, Robin!

Chani - Actually, I just started the physical book, a keepsake for the grandkids since they care enough to follow my blog.

Bonita - MRI images...hmmm, you may have the bud of a good idea!

Cathy - The worlds biggest computer, the brain, it holds everything. With the added dimension of emotion. Mine's not always user friendly, either! LOL

Ginnie - It's so true, no matter how other lives touch us, we are, ultimately, alone in there.

Kate - The contrast of ups and downs is quite a ride, sometimes difficult to fathom and frightening, but quite a ride just the same.

Kgmom - Thank you. I had to think about what what I was going to choose to represent the thought process, the well of information is deep, but I think creativity is one of our greatest gifts. That and the abilities to learn and reason.

Alyssa - Thank you so much, but effortlessly? You should be in there with me! LOL Actually, there are days when it all just comes together and days when it's alphabet soup. A truth for us all.

Hi Pam,

Yes, the brain is indeed a thing of wonder and of terror. Whenever I learn more about memory or language acquisition, I'm just brought to my knees. I like your images.

AC - Thanks. And thanks for stopping by on your vacation.

Caroline - Wonder, mystery and facination. Just think about where our dreams take us.

Laurie - Understanding...yes, to some degree, it goes with age, hopefully. But it's just the tip of the iceburg, there is always so much more, which is what makes it all so intriguing.
