I was honored,
I should be thanking you
Although I agree in many matters of spirit, people should be cautious.
Lucky for you!
This was not one of those times!
If it had been I doubt I would of gotten anything.
My attention would of been elsewhere lol
By the way, that painting you did....I don't know how to exactly explain this, but a friend of mine sent me that thread and told me to take a look at
it. I already posted about what I know about the dead tree within the swamp grass/cattails, but when I saw the whole painting, it really blew me away.
My hometown is located just outside of the Adirondack Park, and just beyond that grove of dead trees that are located east of Syracuse NY. That
exploding mountain immediately reminded me very much of my visceral view of that area when I first learned of my friend's murder. An absolute
mountain version of the Tower card (tarot) as a cataclysmic event that would forever destroy that entire area for me. It's almost as if you painted
that moment in the manner that I experienced it, and to be honest, the fact that you then came through - however many days later - with what you
presented t me through this thread has me pretty floored.
My friend also pointed out to me that the "dragon" coming out at the top of the eruption has much more of a leopard/panther shape to its head, and I
have to agree with her on that. What's odd about that is that my Feminine (right side) totem animal is the panther, and it's what draws me to the
edge of the abyss (any mystery, but especially profound mystery) and forces me to look directly into it to see what can be discerned from it. It was
that eruption event - her murder - that compelled me to get extremely serious about my own metaphysical research (as I've stated here on this board
before) and that panther/leopard could be interpreted as the need to understand that cataclysm, emerging from the event itself as a definable
Let's just say that you blew my mind once again here. If you do a post search on me, you'll discover that I'm not prone to assuming much
whatsoever. In fact, I've published a book that most mystical types find extremely upsetting, since it aggressively pushes back on most of what those
people consider to be possible. Not that passed people don;t exist, but that there's nothing at all miraculous or mystical about them. I'm a
hardcore realist who's found the natural explanation for all that goes bump in the night - and then some. This couple of days here has got me
completely amazed, and while I know there's a very natural explanation, I'm intrigued as to what that explanation might be.
Something definitely just went down here. It seems as if without even realizing it, you've presented even more verification of a temporary connection
with my specific situation through the very specific composition of this one very odd (as you depict it) painting. Let the trolls descend, but I know
what I'm seeing here. This is pretty amazing. Thank you again.
By the way, I had a "conversation" with "her" this morning - she, with her taps and just an overwhelming presence (like a mom who's holding her
little kid) and the taps were completely interactive. I think she knows that she's gotten through to me and we can go forward from here. Thank you
