Your ‘man from the crowd’ gave me the willies - in a good way.
I wonder how our collective blood pressures and stress levels would drop if we knew we all had a ‘face in the crowd’ to be there when we needed?

I have no problem believing what you say, I have lived a life where I should have been gone many times ( like some of my friends) and thought why me. Now I look back and it shocks me to think I am alive and well, so much so I can't help but think I was saved for some reason.
I don't believe in luck or coincidence.
Point of my comment is that I also don't believe in gods and devils. I have not been blessed with the gift of being able to have that blind faith that so many have so my question is what do you all think your being saved for or is it just a religion sort of thing and by being faithful your just being saved from the normal everyday horrors of human life?
I repeat, MAY I use the photo posted of Etna erupting as a background (reference, for a painting)? It's a series of figurative interpretations of constellations. NOT astrologically-related. Informed by the classical tradition of the reclining nude (odalisque) yet, not reclining. Perhaps you tell me what constellation you see prominently around tume of the event which happened, as my credit to you I will use the choice. But I prefer less identifiable constellations: Vulpecula, Aquila, Apus are whar I've done so far. Please let me know, thank you.

Ok, here ya go.
I tried taking pics from the top ---> down and that was a fail - no depth perception at all.
So here‘s the place - shooting from the bottom UP.
I was standing at the top in the first pic - my shoulder/back towards the cliff looking to my left towards Etna.
This is what’s at the bottom.
Might not look like much here on ATS but when you think about pitching straight down 15/20 feet onto a pile a rocks like these - for real - changes the perspective a bit.
rickymouseThey can make you unable to find your keys so you are not somewhere at the wrong time.
PS. Where are all those Guardian Angels of 10.6 million under-five children who die each year from hunger and abuse, or the 5,000 children who are being raped by ''distinguished'' members of society?
Your God really knows how to choose...
or he just likes to see children and innocent people suffering.... (makes sense)
Or he just doesn't exist and you people are giving credit to an idea first thought and created by some naive and primitive dessert people who thought an invisible man in the sky was the answer to their existence...
Um when i was reading this, the hairs on my arms stood up and i got goose bumps all over my body because I've experienced this SEVERAL times.... I know exactly where i put my keys last and just when i was about to leave the house, they disappeared... I mean i literally tore up my whole bedroom looking for my car keys. Just when i decided to give up i look over to where i always put my keys, and there they are! Laying there as if someone or something was playing tricks on me! It's as if i wasn't meant to leave the house at that moment!
