Gifts of the TravellerAll of us in some way or another are on a journey, for some of us we never leave home, yet we discover many things about ourselves and those around us as we travel (travail) through life. For others, this journey demands leave taking of those that we love, cherish and respect.
This weekend, my journey took me to Holland, Manitoba, and while that is an interesting story in which I met once again some very wonderful people, it is the story of Vincent Gabriel Kirouac that I wish to tell.
The road to Holland passes a Monastery. It is not a place that I have been to often, but I have passed it many times. A couple of weeks ago we had lunch with good friends and they offered us some amazing cheese made at this very Monastery. So, as my path took me this way, I was determined to stop and purchase some cheese. After a brief visit with the monks, I had made my purchase, and I was driving south along the road back to the main hig

With each region of the globe creating its own unique cuisine, there are numerous delicious journeys you can take. So let’s embark on a culinary adventure as we explore delicious faire from around the wo
True WitnessI did not wish to come here...
I do not wish to stay..
I do no wish to see it...
But I must not turn away...
There has to be true witness...
someone has to know...
Someone must remember...
Else truth will never grow...
I will watch now and remember...
For those who do not see...
How truth itself was bended...
As if a Bonsai Tree...
And only one to witness...
And that singleton is me...
But I do no wish to be here...
And I fear what I shall See...
On GriefI told the psychiatrist: "It's not that I want to die now she's dead, that's not it specifically... it's more... like magnets. You put us on opposite sides of the veil and of course they're going to cling to it, yearning for the other side."
PARALLEL DREAMS I DREAM OF OTHER WORLDS
WHERE EVERYTHING CAN HAPPEN
IN THE SAME SPACE
BUT MOSTLY OUT OF REACH
SILVER SPARKS FLYING
AS THEY MOVE TOGETHER
A BLACK AND PURPLE BEACH
WHERE GOLD AURORAS WEAVE
AMONGST WARM MAGENTA MOONS
AND CALM SILKEN SEAS
ARE BATHED FROM ABOVE
BLUE CARPETS OF VELVET
PATCH MOUNTAINS OF GREEN
GLITTERING GEMS FLOWER
AS FAR AS THE EYE CAN SEE
A GENTLE WIND WHISPERS
AND FRAGILE CREATURES SIGH
DREAMS JOIN IN THE SYMPHONY
STRUMMING YOU AND I
ALL IS SAVOURED
AND YET SWALLOWED WHOLE
AS I PAINT THE STARS AND VISIONS
WHILST YOU PLAY
A CACOPHONY OF SOUND AND COLOUR
A GORGEOUS HUE

“The difference between fiction and reality? Fiction has to make sense.”
When I was in college, I had a professor who explained to me the virtue of embellishing a story when telling it to others for the sake of entertainment. He explained that when you tell someone something that happens to you, it will always be more dull than it was when you were actually there. And since the purpose of telling someone a story like that is their own personal enjoyment, it is important to embellish it enough so that they feel the same things that you felt when th

~~~ Submission Guidelines -- Please Read ~~~
1. One submission per week please, except for sculpture, where the limit is three different views per week of the same piece, and Artisan Crafts, where the limit is two views of the same piece. This exception is because sculpture and crafts have many different viewing angles. Submissions will be voted on.
2. Please submit only your own work. Include title, medium, size, and any remarks relevant to the work's creation. Credit must be given for all stock and resources used (such as with photomanipulations or for models in photography), .
3. Please only submit work that you are really proud of and is the kind we're looking for (see Group Info), and is at least approximately at the level of what you see here in the galleries. We don't ever want to have to decline anyone, but if we do we will be happy to explain why if you wish.
4. At this time we do not accept work that is just a copy of a photograph, fan art*, fanfics, or comics.
5. We do not ever accept works involving horror, blood & guts, excessive violence, abuse, sex, exploitative nudity, or prejudice. We also do not accept work using materials that required the death or mistreatment of animals.
* Fan art can be tricky to define. I'm relating it to the age of the original work, whether it's still in copyright, and if so, whether the art was commissioned by the creator or owner of the work. An illustration of a fairy tale, myth, legend, or old 'classic' would not be fan art. An uncommissioned illustration based on copyrighted books, movies, or artwork would probably be considered fan art because it couldn't be exhibited or sold.
