Left Behind in a Memory

The difference between false memories and true ones is the same as for jewels: it is always the false ones that look the most real, the most brilliant.” ~Salvador Dali (source)

Memories are often a jump off point for creating a poem, lyric, or other piece of art. They can be enhanced, altered, enlarged, and explored. In fact, they are often only a representation of what we wish could be true. You might wonder why, I spend so much time rearranging and recreating a simple photograph. Just as we each have our own perception of the world, shaped by the past, present, and physiology. This is how I like to remind myself that this is my unique view of the world. Not reality, but my reality. ~ Bill Hendricks (Shadowmason)

My mother use to say, “It’s not what you do on Christmas, birthdays, Mother’s Day or Father’s Day that counts, it is what you do all year-long that really matters.”

Happy Holidays to all my visitors and friends,

You only think this is black and white.

One might only think this is black and white… When the truth is, it is created out of red, green, and blue. Truth is not always so obvious. ~ Bill Hendricks (Shadowmason)
