There is a time in every man's education
When he arrives at the conviction that envy is ignorance;
That imitation is suicide;
That he must take himself for better or worse as his portion;
That though the wide universe is full of good,
No kernel of nourishing corn can come to him
But through his toil bestowed on that plot of ground given him
To till.


I am what I am, but what I will be, that's up to me.

You have me humming 'I am what I am' :-)
Really like this image, Oliviah, wish I knew a more fantastic way of telling you so. Those muted gold colours remind me of a perfume advert I once saw, where the model stepped into a pool of golden liquid and became covered in shimmers. Adding my own heartfelt WOW!
Hugs to you, sweetie, hope your weekend is spectacular, xo

I feel like I'm looking through the key-hold of a magical door onto the golden vistas of another world, one of abundance, and joy, and love, and compassion, and smiles, and hugs; a world without need, and without want; a world where we all simply are, where there is no word for truth because there is no falsehood. I feel this world in your beating heart, in your glorious imagination and I want to join you there, now. :-)

Magnificent work my dear Beautiful Soul. :-)

love the art works, you do it yourself??

Oliviah said...

zeekat, I make them mostly with a free program called Apophysis. It's (to me) the easiest program to work even if I haven't got it all figured out yet! lol!

Wow, what a gorgeous fractal, Oliviah!
And a golden nugget from Emerson to match it. I presume the bottom line is yours. A simple truth, worth always keeping focused on!
Big kisses,

Hello Oliviah, it is me again, this is so beautiful as well, I do not have words, but pictures say more than a thousand words, hehe, isn't that a Bread song? who knows!!! I liked Emerson's quote, and about education I always believe in what some people say Mark Twain said: I never let my schooling interfere with my education. Take care and be always so artistic, good luck with the "new" software. Antonio.
