Heroes / David Fonseca with Rita Redshoes.
I was inspired by the Pandemic to try to come up with something that would lift people up during these times. The Lord of the Rings seemed to (me) have some inspiring elements that I could try to so something with ...
When I start a project/Post an idea first comes to me. An inspiration. It is Art. And like all Art is it alive. It has a Will and Mission of it's own - that I am just a vehicle/vessel for it's message. The greater I am at allowing this - the greater the Art. I do not own it and It is not me. Or mine. It has a life of it's own. I don't know where it comes from. I do know that if I don't allow this, mostly what I do is not worth much. Is there a formula for this? If so, I don't know it. I can't make it happen, I can only put my pencil to the paper and start - with no idea if will occur or not. Maybe the greatest Artists, Writers, Musicians, etc (for ANYTHING can be an Artform) were the best at this. I don't know. I do know when it's happening though. I can feel it. Writers know I mean - when if flows you can't get the words down fast enough - and the words aren't yours.
Here are two pages that I'm working on in Corel Draw: I started with simple idea: Reforge the Ring. Then I started working. Then the project expanded - and truly took on a life of it's own. This is good - though it may mean I won't be able to Post much right away. I'm not even sure anything useful may happen. Sometimes I'll work on a project for days - then weeks - even months. And I have several unfinished. Possibly never to be Posted. Hopefully, eventually, something emerges that is worth something. To somebody. ???
Firstly, I strongly believe there are Spiritual elements / purposes behind all things. Knowing this helps me immensely. Even in my darkest times I could see the great hand moulding me to something of greater use. My Destiny / Fate are a reality, but not premade patterns of my unfoldment. My choices are not limited. I am Soul. A perfect atom of God. His child. And the throne will mine. But not to rule over others - but to serve in any way I can. Total Service / Total Love. Unconfined in all aspects I move higher, deeper, farther toward an infinite horizon ...
We'll get through this thing. And we can help each other.
Blessings ... and take care.
