Complexity Artfully Expressed

Sometimes we have so much to say,
so much on our mind,
that we can't find
anything to say, not find a way.


Sometimes it is to complexed :-)


This art piece is made of
Mia Michelle Araju.
Mia believes that all individuals contain an entire universe within them, right now I am convinced that she has a point here :-D
I just wish that I had a map, so I know where I am, and where to go next.

The Crossroads of life, cant go back - left? right? carry on forward?.
Instinct follow your heart? or your head?.
Lifes choices? = Rest awhile - and then choose - if you were wrong, then make it work by taking a detour.It will become clear sooner or later, which way to go, but be brave, cause it could hurt others, still stick it out, because ,you will know that you have made the right choice.

I really like this Piece of Art Anna-lys, and this was just my thought on it.


My next episode of Master Baker and Miss Potts is now posted.

LOL
Thanks for the map! ;-)

foam said...

i understand exactly what your feeling ..
i'm afraid that if i did find a map i wouldn't know how to read it ..
this portrait is lovely ..
looks like you and as interestingly complex .. :)

It is rather complex. This complexity is also a challenge, that helps us to grow. Alas, I can not offer you a map. Universe being inside your mind, is true from many aspects.I like the cave metaphor of Plato. What you see is not reality, but shadows on the wall.

I love the expression on her face...sad and yearning...it says a lot. I love beautiful art--thank you for sharing!

sometimes not saying anything says it all
hope you had a Blessed Easter

Interesting post and I relate to your comment as well.

There are so many layers to each of us... sometimes we need to peel back each to expose a new one, but other times the skin is really there to protect and heal. I think expressing your feelings is important, but there are many ways of expression. Art is one and you said so much without any words!

I just read a quote about doubt by Budda on Maydens Voyage. As with your post, it struck such a cord with me today...

Thanks.

PS I liked Imacs comment here too...

dianne said...

Very pretty, she does look like you in your avatar...what has happened to that sultry, defiant looking minx we have seen lately:-), is she still in there somewhere as well?

We are all complex creatures, just as we think we know who we are we find that there is another dimension to our spirit and personality,our core beliefs are basically the same but we must always evolve and absord new experiences.
I like what Helen and Imac have said as well. ♡

ANNA-LYS said...

FoamYou put a smile on my face, Tnx!


NBDid I see a hint of Freudian thinking here (to be able to change, You must have an inner conflict, to develop further from)?


KirtiYou are welcome!

ANNA-LYS said...

PeteYou said it all!
(now I get the hole picture of You)
;-)


Helene aka K8First and foremost;
I am happy You survived the earth quake in Italy!Next time You leave US for Europe, go further north for example Scandinavia ;-)

Secondly,I knew You would read the art piece! Thank You!


DianneBy the change of Avatar earlier I tried to expose a tougher me, than I actually am. So it was a state of denial a fake pic of me. All related to the story I told You about the girl I helped from the fathers child abuse - hard time!
Now, I am just me, again, for good and for worst :-D


RuelaObrigado!
Yes, yes, I know
-> Time 4 a change!
(( bjs ))

Sniffles and Smiles said...

What fabulous art...and some of your other posts also display a wonderful wit!!! I am so very pleased to meet you! Thank you for stopping by my blog, and for your kind comments! I am so glad you led me here!!!! You have a very classy blog!

Tyko Brae (exgen. NB) said...

Hi! You may call it freudian. I am a 'realist', and I do not know much about Freud. I wanted to embed an image in my former comment, but I did bit succeed. Ruela has more skill tham me. Nice!

Charles Gramlich said...

So amazing what some folks can do.

laughingwolf said...

simplify! :O lol

ANNA-LYS said...

Sniffles and Smiles Congrats to "Post of Today" and thanks for the evaluation of my blog, but I guess You "tuned in" that I needed some of that, today ;-)


TykotIF You are a realist, and not Freudian inspired, does it mean that You look upon Freud as an idealist? You often refer to Platon, so he wasn't an idealist? I must say:
You are even more complexed than I am! ROFLMAO


CharlesYes, it is.
Some people just has "IT" :-)


LaughingWolf
ha ha ha
isn't that just what I did??

RuneE said...

Creepy and frightening picture (and text. I have more than enough with keeping tabs on the external world if I shouldn't have to stay tuned to my internal one too. Or maybe I have misunderstood? :-)

ANNA-LYS said...

Rune You are great! ;-))

Tyko Brae (exgen. NB) said...

Sorry! Since I do not know Freud, I can't tell what he is. I know a little of Platon, though. He was not an idealist. He was a realist. The ideology of his, is shared by very few people today. Science is concerned with things, that we can observe. This is very pragmatic. We study what we see, not a "reality" behind what is happening. I am pulling your leg. I believe in the Matrix.
Forgive me!

Stacey said...

Good evening Anna-Lys,
I am hearing your words {;)

Even if you gave me a map and pointed me in the right direction, I still would not know which way I was going.
<;O

((((hugs))))

and keep wearing the hat {;D

That reminds me: I never returned "Kiss of the Spider Woman" to the video rental store.

Steve Malley said...

Wow, you have been busy! I love that picture...

Steve Lando said...

komplexiviteten ligger i hennes bara skapelse, yttring, som kvinna, gudinna - allt annat däromkring blir bara attiraljer; allt fokus bör så ligga gentemot henne, för att understödja och bejaka hennes komplexivitet samt totala tillfredsställelse.

Med anledning utav hennes gröna ögon, kunde jag inte annat än tänka på min:
