Amazing ! Nice! Beautiful! OMG!
What else could I say….
I see nothing to write … the colors make me even sadder than I already am … I seem to see a maze, I look out in vain … I’m completely lost
Hi Off Air,
How are you ?
Jump high enough, that way you might see which way to go, or try going left at every turn
hm “jump enough” I’m in flip flops and long skirt. This is not a good idea, I might still drop like three days ago (sad truth, I even tore my dress, but hey it can be stitched). Let’s try the second solution: left … left …….. left …. awww! deadlock! And now what do I do …!? p
Hi Red, the re (d) turn
How are you since our last conversation …?
Hi, I’m very well, thank you.
I hope you weren’t hurt when you fell, flip flops may look innocent, but don’t be fooled
Did you manage to find your way out of the maze or are you still lost ?
Flip flops were not guilty but my long dress on which I walked ( I adore this words “flip flops” it’s cuter in English than in French
Fortunately, there was a bench like that I am not fallen on the floor. I just have a bruise on the knee that is already beginning to disappear.
I managed to find the way out of the maze but now I’m caught in the spinning wheels spirals. In fact, the maze it is this blog lol
I find too / I am better
…you wrote something! Could be part of painting’s truth…
Good morning Off Air, how are you? Are YOU sad? Or is this only the description what you feel during you you look at this pic.
I hope you know my comment was meant ironically. This looks like a crispbread with algae:D
OH NO- this is art! I am really a philistine!
But : ” Hey man I’m alive I’m taking each day and night at the time”….
This is an old Bon Jovi-song . It is my earworm at the time. Did you read my comment about singing?
I really hope that you are NOT sad.And if – then look at the “olympic spirit “.
Jamie is so cute! I hope you are fine ma chère amie! See you soon!
Good evening Cherrylee, I hope you had a good day
I saw your comment this morning but I did not answer (or to you or to others) because I had to leave for work. It was a long day … Very long. And I could not even answer with my phone since last night I had lost my internet connection. It returned later in the day and I do not know why. I will have to inform myself.
Yes I am sad. Because of what is happening here. The administrator has deleted one of my posts. Oh that’s not what makes me sad, on the contrary, he did well. What makes me sad is to see what state I was: I was really gross … at the point of not recognizing me. I think the writing to make things easier, orally, I would never have been so far …
Since then, I asked me many questions relative to this blog.
I’m starting to compare a drug when you start to come, we can no longer be detached … such a drug but it ends up having adverse effects …
I think I mostly need a vacation. In three weeks. And there, that I want to come or not on the site, I would not have internet there !!
Yes I saw “Olympic spirit”. The pool makes me dream
Did you notice? Jared is wearing his slippers.
And thanks to Talesgarden, I saw that he was also on the picture of Malibu. He spends his life in slipperz
Like I said earlier, I have some affection for his slipperz.
But cons, I wonder about the weather in California. These are winter slipperz. He is not too hot?! Or he has his feet even colder than me lol
I love the picture of Malibu, it’s amazing. I left a comment on Instagram: I ask him if I can sit five minutes with him … in fact they are the first lyrics of a French song. “Mistral gagnant” de Renaud
See you sOOn ma chère amie
Good morning Off Air,
when I read your comment I had really frightened. Yes this blog can sometimes change someones life for good or for bad. I wrote it hear a time ago, we should keep a healthy distance. I have also tried but unfortunately I did not managed too.
But I ty it again and again.
Don’t be sad ma chère amie, I think to go on holiday is a good idea.
And I hope you will come back to me and Jared’s slipperz:D
I love them too, you know. And I have seen that he is always wearing. They have a bit of a grandpa:D Oh Jay, you old grandpa!
I often ask me the same as you, if it is not to hot to wear it. But probably not.
Dear Off Air my time is up now. If you are angry, listen to this : DANKO JONES- ” I think bad thought’s” this is really good to reduce aggressions!
See you soon!
“Oh Jay, you old grandpa! ”
thank you Cherrylee you made me laugh
I imagine the head of Jared read it or he will be annoyed or you will be able to get him a smile
Have you seen the latest photo of Instagram, he looks as cheerful as me …
I want the sound with the pics… I think I need to hear him singing. Have you seen the last VyRT? I don’t stop thinking at one of the new songs we heard, which one about “save”
I’m sorry I did not want to frighten you. It was really not my intention.
Hi Off Air, good to see you smile, today in the morning I wrote you a long reply but my iPad had delete it. Damn! You can not imagine how angry I was! I am really a technical genius .
I have only seen the Malibu- Instagram- pic. This is because my WLAN is bad at the moment. And I have not seen the last VyRT.
I hope you had a nice day! See you!
Hi Jay, I love your ” olympic spirit”. !!! And Jamie- I love YOU! You poor man must always do everything what Jared invents. You both are so crazy! You always make me laugh. Give you a big hug!
And Jared please don’t be so gruff to Jamie with the monkey! XO
I have pb to understand this kind of art, need lesson!
To me this is the complete polar opposite to Damien Hirst’s spot paintings, the regimented uniformity of the circles opposed to the chaotic freedom of the paint splatters, everything from the choice of colour, execution and overall effect, personally I prefer the hidden depths of this one.
When I look at this work or Dan Colen, this is not what speaks to me the most. The mood in which you are when you look at these works play an important role. I was not going very well, and I felt as if lost in a labyrinth, trapped.
Yesterday I saw a photo exhibition of an artist who has photographed through her window for 3 years. About 2 miilion photos. It’s impressive. I thought, that one, he put his camera on a tripod, in continuous mode … But in fact the pictures are very different between sky, ground and water.
Jared loves the gates I love the windows. In Portugal, from the street I took a picture of the sky through an open window. There remained only the frame, there was more glass; the house had no roof either.
I love photography ♥
It’s true what you say, when we look at something what we see depends on what we are feeling at that time. Even our interactions and replies are often jaded as a result. We do not see what is meant, only a distorted representation of it, distorted by our own limited point of view.
Not only in art, but life itself. Often, when you look at something, like a painting or watch a film, or hear a song that maybe you passed by with nothing more than a brief encounter, only to revisit them again, at a later time in your life, does it then resonate on a much deeper level. It’s always good, if not necessary to return to something with fresh eyes, that way maybe you will see something with clarity, for how it is truly meant and not what you had originally thought.
ps It’s good to get lost sometimes, it leads to new discoveries, mostly about ourselves.
At work, I have a colleague who is starting to introduce her in painting and drawn. I heard her say: “I don’t understand contempory art” That make me laugh. I told her that there is nothing to understand in the art, contemporary or otherwise, but only to feel. So it is intertwined with the mood in which we are.
I agree on the fact that it is interresting to revisit things that we have seen, read, heard. Not only we will not be in the same mindset but in addition it has evolved. Fortunately, we are not beings frozen.
For my graduations, I had to read of a number of books. I remember for my first degree, I was unable to read certain books because I was too novice. I picked these books later and suddenly they became very clear.
In my profession there is a pediatrician and psychoanalyst who is well known and recognized, in respect of accompanying children: Françoise Dolto. I read her book “Tout est communication.” The first time I could not understand her thought. Today, when I talk with others, I think they have misread her thought. I often hear that from Dolto, it is important, indeed imperative, to tell the truth to children. I do not agree. All truth is not good to say, it can be extremely hurtful and caused irreversible damage. For me, Dolto emphasizes the importance of speaking true. I do not know if you see the nuance.
I was struck by reading a book from one of her disciples: Caroline Eliacheff “Vies privées, de l’enfant roi à l’enfant victime”. I’ve done better understand the thread of Dolto thought by reading this book. Her book was also stuck me because Eliacheff gives us an extract from the childhood of a dictator of the best known. She is careful to tell us that. She speak a little boy saying only the initials of his name, which she reveals the significance that at the end. She refers to a colleague who has examined childhood dictators. Her name escapes me… I would love to read the book but unfortunately it is no longer edited…
Oh la la, I wrote a novel … Sorry, I hope I don’t annoy you. Sometimes when I start I don’t stop…
Don’t apologise, no, you do not annoy me, not even in the slightest. You always have something of interest to say, I enjoy reading your comments, and like Ari said, you are a very important force here, always giving, always with such grace.
Have a good week
I would agree that it is extremely important to tell children the truth, but which truths are told is of more importance. Children need to hear a certain amount of truths, which can vary greatly from child to child, to protect that child from the darker side of life. However, to me it is more important to protect the child from a distance, and let them be children, to discover the world and themselves through their own experiences. Let their world be fulfilled in the way it should be with wonder and amazement for as long as possible, soon enough they will have to grow up and deal with all the negativity that surrounds us.
As you say, this does not just apply to children, it’s finding the balance of being truthful as opposed to always telling the truth, yes the truth hurts, but lies hurt even more, and to me it’s the lies and broken trust that causes the irreparable damage
“but lies hurt even more, and to me it’s the lies and broken trust that causes the irreparable damage”
I can’t be more agree.
Derelict land or land prepared for planting? What an incredible
That’s beautiful just like you!!!<3
lol my lit teacher used this as a comparison to slaughterhouse 5
For me, I have more of an appreciation for Pollock’s process than the actual finished work.
