Rock and roll in motion! -Shoham

Again, you save the day. I am sure that you did notice this but I want your feed back on my intended affect with this photograph. The caption is key to understanding my thinking. Two things are, I feel, stark, here. One, is the obvious motion in the foreground. Two, and I think, the most important part, is the little Less Paul sitting quietly, idle, begging to be picked up and played. I did do quite a bit of work on the little guy. The strap was hanging over his, "stage right", side so I rebuilt a lot of that. Then I lightened the color and made it much brighter. He was even given a little halo to help him be noticed.

So what do you think, Shoham?

I'm a believer in the philosophy-- prepare, prepare, prepare, and then act. I like to study Eastern thought, and part of me believes in the idea that once the work is done, it's time to throw it to the wind. Well, from what I know of you-- you've prepared, prepared, prepared, and now you're acting. Last step: throw it to the wind, my friend... throw it to the wind!

I have this urge to explain my position when I receive feedback that is negative or, in my eyes, at best, poorly presented, or even, slightly callas.

I do my best with feedback and, I hope, never seem negative or hurtful to anyone. If my thought is close to any study, I think it would be of eastern influence. When I have looked back at my life, I see someone who has been inhibited by a seemingly very large capacity of or for empathy. I cried when Mom told me to eat my food because there were children starving in the world who would be happy to eat it. I think I was 4 or 5, for example.

Not sure how or what I should do in this phase of my life. I assume you are speaking of a parallel between my life and the photo? You seem to get my mind in motion, perhaps like the guitars, it is blurred, possibly from the ludicrous speed at which it travels, or the cloud where it is engulfed.

How simple, yet, so powerful.
