Weathering the Storm by vhm-Alex Weathering the Storm by vhm-Alex
Mountains should be climbed with as little effort as possible and without desire. The reality of your own nature should determine the speed. If you become restless, speed up. If you become winded, slow down. You climb the mountain in an equilibrium between restlessness and exhaustion. Then, when you're no longer thinking ahead, each footstep isn't just a means to an end -- but rather a unique event in itself.

A well needed update.

I am in awe. It is striking yet has an incredible subtlety. This piece keeps my senses trapt between odds. I feel at peace and also that there is something foreign and worrisome about. Like a need to act, a cause seems to stir in my mind. I have a need to do.. not something.. just to.. do. I am mesmorized and confused. It is beautiful and dark yet it also glimpses upon the feelings of hope and adventure. I feel alive and very challeged. A purpose is suddently wanted. A mission much different that which one would usually consider a mission. Life. Your words are wise and escalate the already profound message of the artwork to an even higher place. It brings in the soul and opens the heart, allowing them to mesh with the mind and wonder. Wonder about our own lives. Are we going up our mountain at to hurriered a pace to see the miracle of the now? Or are we dragging our feet, ignoring all around us, posing no challege to ourselves? So now i will ponder and think and be more aware of my life and my mountian. If you could not already tell, I love this piece. You are an amazing and amazingly talented artist. Favourited!
