  • Evening Song - Man vs. Nature

    Posted on: November 17th, 2012 at 8:22AM

    Digital Art by martysmax "The power of abstract thinking has led us to treat the natural environment--the web of life--as if it consisted of separate parts, to be exploited by different interest groups. Moreover, we have extended this fragmented view to our human society, dividing it into different nations, races, religious and political groups. The belief that all these fragments--in ourselves, in our environment, and in our society--are really separate has alienated us from nature and from our fellow human beings and thus has diminished us. To regain our full humanity, we have to regain our experience of  connectedness with the entire web of life. This reconnecting, religio in Latin, is th… [more]


  • pathos - a high cold star on a winter's night...

    Posted on: November 23rd, 2012 at 7:33AM

    Digital Art by martysmax When it occurs to a man that nature does not regard him as important, and that she feels she would not maim the universe by disposing of him, he at first wishes to throw bricks at the temple, and he hates deeply the fact that there are no bricks and no temples. Any visible expression of nature would surely be pelleted with his jeers. Then, if there be no tangible thing to hoot, he feels, perhaps, the desire to confront a personification and indulge in pleas, bowed to one knee, and with hands supplicant, saying, "Yes, but I love myself." A high cold star on a winter's night is the word he feels that she says to him. Thereafter he knows the pathos of his situation.--St… [more]


  • Behind The Bars No World

    Posted on: November 18th, 2012 at 5:35PM

    Digital Art by martysmax The Panther His vision, from the constantly passing bars, has grown so weary that it cannot hold anything else. It seems to him there are a thousand bars; and behind the bars, no world. As he paces in cramped circles, over and over, the movement of his powerful soft strides is like a ritual dance around a center in which a mighty will stands paralyzed. Only at times, the curtain of the pupils lifts, quietly--. An image enters in, rushes down through the tensed, arrested muscles, plunges into the heart and is gone.-- Rainer Maria Rilke… [more]


  • The Cruelest Show On Earth

    Posted on: December 3rd, 2012 at 5:17PM

    It's no circus for the animals: "Sadie and Elsie were the youngest of the eight, and were very timid. One day, when we had them in the ring barn urging them through one of their tricks, Sadie just could not grasp what we were trying to show her. In frustration she attempted to run of the ring. We brought her back and began to punish her for being so stupid. We stopped suddenly, and looked at each other, unable to speak. We were seeing something I've never experienced before or since. Sadie was crying like a human being. She lay there on her side, the tears streaming down her face and sobs racking her huge body...." From "Elephant Tramp," a book by George LewisDigital Art by martysmax "She wa… [more]
