Digital Art First Series The Motion Question

One critic says my pictures have no motion
But it's the mind that moves when gazing
I believe
It finds within Digital the motions
that yield up patterns in that
moving sea

This is the first 12 volumes of my original Digital Art, originally published separately, now in a single economical Kindle-only volume. These are a combination of words and graphics produced mainly by Infarview with occasional help from Paint and Sketch Paint. I think they are the best bedtime reading on the planet, but I am biased.

Education has no borders time or scope

Escaping Superstition's Coil
Education has no borders time or scope
To say less is acceding to a past
A past of wars and ravages and harm
that better education might yet quell
Education's future's a conundrum
awash in sprawl and politics and oil
Let curiosity prevail
and borders vanish
And let us escape
superstition's coil

SAPPHIRE BLUE EXPLOSION1 by Stephen Rose http://buff.ly/1uvPCkQ

A tiny core of freedom


Behind meanings
a tiny core of freedom is
the most precious thing we have
worth more than any price we might adduce
It is what finally goads us
into truth
Money's neither evil's root
nor good's
These lie within that tiny little core
The root of what the heart decides
Reveals our grandeur
and our tragedy
Which it shall be
is what we decide

Good is everything that prevents harm

Good and evil are no mystery
Good is everything that prevents harm
Evil is choices that lead to harm
knowingly with malice in the heart

Hypocrisy is often our disguise
so we can claim we do not know the truth
But truth will out with every deed
Good and evil are no mystery
We must learn to live with facts
The biggest is that we are free


The Slow as Molasses Press

We know what good and evil is.


There is a huge "tell" in the story of Adam and Eve. It comes when God says that if Adam and Eve know what good and evil are, they will become like him! The writer is clearly telling us that we do know what good and evil is. And that we are not without the qualities that would - and could - make us at least somewhat better than we are. What the writer does not mention is that we would ignore this knowledge for centuries in deference to forces that have in fact been evil.

We evolve or not according to the freedom we possess


The buck stops with us
There is no beyond
What we call beyond
is deep within
It is our sense
of what's beyond beyond
And what's beyond beyond
is only good
The good that's there
when we can comprehend
How simple and direct
that goodness is
It is the helping hand
It is the tolerant perspective
It is the open heart
It is the freedom that is
able to discern the good
It is the humility before this
deep beyond
It is the winsome nature
of the One within us
Who only wants us to celebrate
creation
And act within creation
without fear
The buck stops with us
and we evolve or not
according to the freedom we possess

Evil is measured by relative degrees of harm.

Evil is measured by relative degrees of harm. To be delivered from evil  is to be  free from receiving or inflicting abuse.  Bully...
