To the artist is sometimes granted a sudden, transient insight which serves in this matter for experience. A flash, and where previously the brain held a dead fact, the soul grasps a living truth! At moments we are all artists. Arnold Bennett

In Art. Art cuts deeply into us, Bleeds us on the wall. The blood runs profusely. And, eventually dries and stains the soul. Yes, in Art. For the wound does not close, inflictions and Infirmities come to men and women alike, and a red mark is on the wall. Yes, in Art. When the blood stops the wound closes, healers and savants come in good measure, and a red mark is on our world. Yes, In Art.
Always have the strength to live. Love life, and if despair enters your heart, look for me in the evenings when the wind is gentle and the owls sing in the hills. I shall be with you. –Bless Me, Ultima /

The Mexican problem is not really a problem incumbent only to Mexico; it is a universal problem. It is the problem of hunger, the problem that the disinherited of all the world have to resolve under the penalty of living with their bodies bent down under the yoke of the master class. To deny solidarity to the Mexican working men who are struggling to conquer their economic freedom is to stand against the labor cause in general because the cause of the wage-slave against his master has no frontiers. It is not a national problem, but a universal conflict. It is the cause of all the disinherited of the world over, of everyone who has to work with his hands and his brains to bring his family a loaf of bread. –Ricardo Flores Magon, 1914. Mexicano Revolutionary
Shake off this sadness, and recover your spirit sluggish you will never see the wheel of fate that brushes your heel as it turns going by, the man who wants to live is the man in whom life is abundant. Now you are only giving food to that final pain which is slowly winding you in the nets of death, but to live is to work, and the only thing which lasts is the work; start then, turn to the work. Throw yourself like seed as you walk, and into your own field, don't turn your face for that would be to turn it to death, and do not let the past weigh down your motion. Leave what's alive in the furrow, what's dead in yourself, for life does not move in the same way as a group of clouds; from your work you will be able one day to gather yourself. –Miguel De Unamuno ~(Roots and Wings, edited and translated by Robert Bly)

Oceanic Dreams: The sand falls between my fingers, it covers my body and gets in my hair and settles between my toes. The sand can give way to my foot steps where the ocean waves will washed away my path of dreams. (From "Todos Santos" ltd. –g.bejarano
