I'M HERE TO EMPOWER YOU!

I’m an artist . . . but that’s not saying much, because I believe, and it is something that I have devoted my time heavily to convey, that art expression is an inherent property of human nature. The media may vary, but not the innate disposition.

Those that know me have heard my “talent-as-myth” diatribe all too often, and if you end up tuning in to my posts, you will encounter it soon enough. It is my goal to change the notion, which a great number of people resign to, that one needs to have “talent” to pursue the art they feel or want and am doing this on a daily basis through my program in the G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers.

With that as preface, I will probably devote a portion of my posts to inspiring artists, but I also plan to impart other conceptions that I have about life in general, with the goal of elevating, encouraging, enlivening or energizing those who read them.

Let me begin with this:

I wish for you the ability to create for yourself all that your heart desires.

"Message In A Bottle" fantasy composite by Robin Griggs Wood


"Message In A Bottle" fantasy composite by Robin Griggs Wood

Not the exact idea of this particular image, but I thought it would be fun to challenge you with the same challenge I gave my Arcanum apprentices ... to add something in the comments based on the following scenario:

You're walking along a beach. There, in near distance, sits the ubiquitous washed-ashore bottle. You're not close enough to it yet to see it clearly, but as you walk closer, your mind meanders over to the classical story of someone on a long distant island or sinking ship tossing it into the water with a message inside; a last, desperate plea for help or a note of enduring love to a faithful companion.

At last you arrive …
and find that there is, indeed, a curled piece of paper tucked inside the sealed bottle. It's a love letter, with the full name of the person to whom it's addressed and last known location.

How will you react: with action or indifference?

Don't read anyone else's until you've added your comment … ;o7

(I've got Sting singing in my head now ... ;o7)

    Gorgeous picture.

  16. If I were one of these children I would immediately take it to my father. He has enough romance and imagination to want to find the person whose name is in the bottle. We would find it a great adventure.  Maybe he would get a detective or the police to help. I get butterflies in my stomach just thinking of the excitement these children feel at this discovery! Thanks Robin Griggs Wood for creating and sharing this wonderful photo!

  19. I would have to find the person it was intended for ... Hopefully I could deliver it person, but at least get it to them somehow.

  20. A genuine message in a bottle is something too unique. I would keep it un a safe place and let the person it was intented for kown I have it by any possible mean : last known address, social networks, etc.

    By the way, great work ! And now I have Sting singing in my head too ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  21. Well action if I could, but you do not tell us in what time- period the last known address is. If in the past wouldn't it be amazing to time travel and deliver in person. Still it would be an amazing adventure to trace  the family and still deliver the message in person to the ancestors of the love letter. My mind is off and running in many different avenues, thanks Robin Griggs Wood

  23. I would like to think that I would take action to get the letter to the person that it is intended for.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I would want the person to whom it was sent to receive it. I would send it to the last known location with an explanation of how I found it.
