I see a beam of light coming from above and shinning upon your beauty in the darkness. I hope and trust my dear Beautiful Soul, that you had a wonderful Thanksgiving filled with love and joy. Oh, and if you need some help relaxing just let me know. :-D

Oliviah, this one is the most awesome yet. The pattern - like an Indian fan of feathers - beckons. Hope your Thanksgiving weekend was great - hugs XXOO

You didn't seem to get my last posting for this. I think it's the Eagle Feather of freedom and Peace.

Hope I'm right!

Hmm... I see a moment frozen in time. A moment that will last forever in the eyes of a child. That moment when milk is spilled on the handmade antique doily on the arm of Grandma's favorite chair.

I guess I'm not as deep as everyone else.

How you got that streak on there, I'll never know, but it is beautiful.
Wontar, that is pretty deep thinking, to me. I can really see what you mean there.

This is so different from the others. Hanging in there!

trée, smoochies to you...can you feel them? ;) I love, love, love this fractal. I rendered it first in flam3 and the "beam of light" was erased completely! So I rendered it again with the internal renderer and yay, it was there. Funny how the two renderers can create such different effects.

dzeni, thank you! You are so "pro", it makes me feel like I made a high score on an exam when you like them. :)

Terry, I'm so glad you feel that way. I do too! LOL! To me, it looks so vulnerable, like letting go and relaxing when feeling very weak and utterly drooping...and yet there is something that keeps you firmly anchored even in such a state. I really liked that thought.

evy, what an interesting thought. I love the variety of thoughts and feelings these things bring. I guess that is what I love most about making these images.

wontar! That made me laugh so hard--you are such a good writer! And when I read it, my mind pictured the doilies (sp?) that my grandmother made and laid on the arms of her chairs! Oooh, she would have spanked my bottom red had I spilled milk on her doilies! Thank you for the laughs...and the memory your comment evoked--I'd forgotten those doilies. :)

Mr. Chaos, I just used the Snowflake script and the final transform to distort the image, then used some other variation (with the final transform) and there it was, the "streak". And inadvertantly learned that sometimes one renderer works better than the other for certain things.

Miles Stone, yes! I'm glad you saw that. :)

Hugs and smoochies to everyone!

These comments are so good, I couldn't say anything that could express it better, how wonderfully unique this image is.
