I love this, equal rights for all isnt it ? but thats not a truth in reality thats the saddest part about it.

love JC x

“The world is full of magic things, patiently waiting for our senses to grow sharper.” — W.B. Yeats

yes, equality is the deepest intent; not polarizing people, or ideas etc. as absolutely this or that.

I hope it can also be seen literally. Gray is percieved as a non- color (achromatic). It gets little respect, and liguistically is used as a pejorative term, to denote lack of vibrancy, dullness, sadness etc . So I ask you "is that fair" Gray IS beautiful and necessary and important in the grand scheme.
so I say....


I've missed you here
I have taken some time off also
but returing feels good too

Love the mix of black and white to give the whole concept of rights for all and crafted well as a Senyru, Yours Ian.T

There are a million reasons to believe in yourself,
So find more reasons to believe in others..

It was fun to play with this senyru. I'm glad that it retained some substance as it evolved. often things get lost in translation from thought to page.

thanks for coming by
