where were we before we were here?
We're basically anonymous but we anonymous can be so much more. It would make me feel better to know that all of our words have impacted the world, no matter the quantity.
The sounds of the universe just got a lot more beautiful! And the coffee tastes a lot better, too
edit on 16-9-2013 by Malraux because: (no reason given)
Anyway, I just put that out there and am soliciting advice. Where do I begin? Most importantly, HOW do I begin?
Thanks for taking the time to read my nearly-unreadable post.

I'm very happy that you joined in! Not sure about the train but it would be interesting to find out. We could always use "Brothers", so pour yourself a cup of coffee, queue up onehuman's beautiful music, and join in the conversation!

I've never watched Inception. It's one of my boys' favorite movies but I haven't watched it.
Well, Malraux is in reference to Andre Malraux's " Man's Fate " I used it for my Master's thesis in History and it was very influential, as a commander in the Army, to my understanding the need to understand small group missions versus a big infiltration. Though failed, the Shanghai uprising ultimately brought a new life to the people of China...but was it better? It reminded me that insurgents, though small in number, had a much more personal goal than did my unit...I was only a company commander but I think it applied to the military as a whole.... It's harder to protect and defend against those who are not trying to defend because they have nothing. Maybe it doesn't make a lot of sense, but early communism was supposed to save the starving man...but look how that turned out.
Love FoSG! My friend, Lucy, had the same hair style when we were in middle school!
Malraux? I was told to post, (hmmm that sounds odd), but dont know how else to describe it, a piece of my art work. I guess it is suppose to help you remember about the shovel and rake? Anyhow, here it is:
I was just about to post this when I heard to do this one below as well. Seems it might be a bell ringer for someone else that has been following this thread. lol Night Star, may even know where this was taken to give me the basis of creating the piece. Not saying it is her trigger though...
I dont know if you ladies are interested or not, but since we are getting to know each other a little bit, I thought I would share something of mine. I am a firm believer you can tell a lot about a person by the music or art that they like. You have all ready seen a couple pieces of my art, so I thought I would share with you a song I wrote when I was 12. Perhaps you will get a little better feel of my soul when and if you listen too it.
Lol, something to do while we wait for more great memories to be shared from Malraux!
The link will take you to the song and it should play automatically. If it doesnt, just click the little orange play button.
Enjoy... MY SONG
Dont panic, it is pretty mellow!
