I really like that, Sharon. Makes me feel OK to be fragmented and torn at times. Big Grin

Love the dogwood painting too. Lovey dubby

There is beauty in both the words and the painting.
Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most.

Is it odd that the first thing this quote brought to mind was Pablo Picasso' paintings?

That made me smile, Zany. I agree his work is often fragmented, depending on the time he painted it. It surely isn't kaleidoscopic though, is it. Smiling

I wish I had done a painting that fit the design of the kaleidoscope for this quote. I've taught that kind of total symmetry in classes a few times but I don't have an example that I could easily put my hands on. I don't like painting that way because it feels too confining but I have an artist friend who does nothing but symmetrical paintings.

Done me a poem instead Big Grin

Fragments of my child remain in my soul,
like particles of food left in my bowl

The stains of the negatives are still there too, traces of lovers and love ones lost bear faint hue.

And yet the meal was delicious, the color and the flavor,
much to my delight. All because life’s wonderful and colorful and bright

We are made of many parts, complex in our interpretation of love and tragedies by our inner sight.

Creativity is gods gift to us, the tools, musicians string or painters brush,
The music and the paints are us.
Fortune favors the brave.
Tickling is no laughing matter.

Beautifully done, Jon. Your thoughts are so true. We are the music and the paints. I like that. Now, put it to music.

I wrote a song recently. I'm waiting for someone to sing it. Someday.

I truly love this quote. And you already know how much I love the dogwood painting. You are so talented!

I've just been given tools, Nap, just like Jon, just like the rest of us. I try to use them well. But thank you bunches.
