Marina Mallhotra & Carl Scharwath remind us that the little thing of coming together with artistic talents can make a big impact! They created this awesome poem and photograph combination that builds on itself to feel the full story. Take a look!
Inside a thick blanket An artificial haven I think, reflects My situation Am I really alive? Is this a meaningful existence? Where is my soul? Where is my body? I look for it here and there I wish to convince myself That I am one With myself in ideas and, directions The sun melts blankets of snow The wind takes cover Positioning itself Leaves, trees and flowers That dare themselves “It’s my time now” they utter Then I ask myself Is it my time too? And if it is, if it really is? My time…. now Will I be able to keep pace With the swift streams of life That reject cultures, and civilizations Then once again I am left behind by them In spring…….
Martina Rimbaldo brings art that truly shines from Croatia! Her photography and poetry come together and fill the soul with warmth and reverie. I encourage you to bask in the ray of light that she brings!
Light within = Hope within
We all own a light within us just sometimes the light hides behind a robe of darkness doe to dirty words of others, of realistic critics they do not know the dreams of idealists like us…We are Aliens to each other I can not cling myself on reality it, is too cruel and what we call a reality is not a reality we do not live in it as it is reserved for the afterlife. All that surrounds us is a dream. We create our dreams first we need to know who we are, Only by knowing who we are we can not be broken by other peoples acts towards us. Mind develops by experiences good and bad. If you had bad experiences it will form negative thoughts, you will print a negative pattern to yourself and others too.
You need to let go of your mind and open your heart ,and develop self awareness in order to change that negative print.
We have everything we need in us, do not let others interfere with their venon,
You are strong, good enough.
Every person is unique and nobody needs to be corrected for being different as none of us are mistakes even if you make one you are not that mistake!
You, me, them, are valid human beings, you have a right to follow to create your own life path.
You are your own person ,individual no one can remove you from you!
You know what is best for you ,nobody lives inside your skin but you!
You have control over you, you can make it happen!
Stuck inside your souls core
do you see the dark walls surrounding you?
Your inner child is lost
your inner women has no dignity
Your inner man has no voice to speak, no arms to fight
Who do you have left?
There is still the light of hope
silent wispers to your heart that no other can hear
Do not give up
He still needs you here
but the demons are evil
playing with your mind
mind does not need your heart
your heart does not need your mind
brake trough the pain
there is always light
it will be ok it all ends the same
While you think you are the only one
thousands and more stars just as broken as you
moan to the moon
knowing the end will not come so soon
the only thing one can do is to endure
temptations, trials, pain, suffering
it is not easy but it is the only way to stay here
and move on no metter what it takes to get to the goal
do not let others interfere
even if for them you are a zero
in your life you are a hero
Fear= safety – step out of it! allow yourself to live and breathe You are going to suffocate in here dragged, drowned in your own mind-created fear
When idealist abandons his dreams & ideas dreams become bullets ideas become guns They commit the crime. Broken mind is the most dangerous kind.

Looking at the simple beauty of the world around us is something that this pandemic cannot take away from us. I always get excited seeing Daniel Pravda’s work because he captures the stillness in a way that feels alive. Take a look!
Daniel Pravda takes photographs of beautiful decay. He lives in Virginia and drives to the farmlands of eastern Virginia and North Carolina. He finds countless abandoned farmhouses, barns, trucks, tractors, churches, etc., and many broadcast beauty to the open-eyed. More personally, seeing lovely decay helps him deal with our own decay.
