There are many ways of breaking a heart. Stories were full of hearts broken by love,
but what really broke a heart was taking away its dream - whatever that dream might be.

"Kindness cannot be taught by harshness - not by any amount of harshness."
~Raymond M. Smullyan, "The Tao is Silent"

This is an original Melanie. I had a night alone the other night, and actually picked up a pencil and started sketching. How wonderful that was. I can't do that with 1,000,000 questions and needs being tossed at me, faster than I can respond. It was a good beginning.

what do you see? It reminded me of an old poem, Out of the Cave, which I am sure you all have read.

be well. stay focused. forget the pain. namaste.


  1. i see a horses eye with hair in it?? very nice.

    oh...time alone. i adore time alone.


  2. lily: I have no concrete vision of what it represents or is "supposed to be". Definitely an eye. Then it looked like a squid then, it looked different again.

    I wish I had more time alone.

  3. I see pain
    but more so

    It's free
    and visceral.

    I love it.

  4. i love it too.. i see a woman's eye, with tears (or blood).

  5. I agree with Rebecca...I saw a horse's eye as well. At least at first I did.

    Some kind of crazy fish with stuff on it works too.

    And you made up that Smullyan name, right? ;)

  6. kat: ty. wisdom, sadness, & visceral all very good.

    slyde: could be blood tears. or some kind of mermaid eye?

    earl: i am leaning towards "crazy fish".

    nope. wiki it! :wink:

  7. Very nice! I wish I could draw.

  8. I see an eye.

    I see a plant.

    I see a peacock feather.

  9. winter: be the pencil. See the paper. violate.

    Red: I like the peacock feather. didn't see that! hi...

  10. regardless of WHAT it is - it is good that you can do yourself this way.

  11. I like it a lot!

    what do I see? I see someone who is rough outside but the eye inside tells a different story, this person is soft and warm and full of love and a litte bit sad.
    I see lack of trust and hiding.
    overall I see someone who can obviously speak with a pencil.
    great Job Melanie
