Blue Oblivion

Days like this I don't know what to do with myself
All day...and all night
I wander the halls along the walls and under my breath I say
I need fuel...to take flight

And there's too much going on
But it's calm under the waves, in the blue of my oblivion
Under the waves, in the blue of my oblivion

Is that why they call me a sullen girl, sullen girl?
They don't know that I used to sail the deep and tranquil sea
But he washed me ashore and he took my pearl
And he left an empty...shell of me

And there's too much going on
But it's calm under the waves, in the blue of my oblivion
Under the waves, in the blue of my oblivion
It's calm under the waves in the blue of my oblivion

That is so beautiful & relaxing. I wish I could just float away in it.

Seems like such a simple fractal, yet perhaps one of the most beautiful. I see the ocean and I see the sky but more important I see the beautiful soul from which such beautiful art derives. Thinking of you.

Oddly enough, that fractal has been the most difficult one I have done so far, so far as trying to make it achieve a very specific effect. The song Blue Oblivion has soothed me often through the years & I wanted to make a fractal to express that somehow. I finally got a simple flame but had to tweak it like crazy to get it to this point of blue and some translucency. (It was gray/brown)I wanted the waves clear but I wanted to also show tranquility. I have gone back to tweak this flame countless times. Maybe one day I will get it exactly like I want it. But oh, how nice to finally at least get it so close... Oliviah
