  1. How interesting, I don't think I have seen this artwork ~ I like the cyber interfacing in the first part, and the arms embracing, which for me speaks of making it a reality ~ Sweet response, thank you Truedessa ~ Happy New Year ~

    1. Hi Grace,

      Thanks for hosting! I couldn't decide which artwork to use then I saw that one and it just jumped out at me.

  2. Nice! You put a less bleak view of the art -- instead, we have valued memories, timeless beauty and embrace. Loved it.

  4. It is good to infuse the poetics with a positive vibe; too many dark dystopian responses leave us in a negative place. I did not see that image in the selection; it is a whole different dominion with two figures.

    1. Hi Glenn,

      Well, you know I tend to be a bit of a romantic so I guess that is where my mind wandered.

  6. cool. we do try to capture those moments...though we have to be careful not to be so busy capturing them, that we do not live them...i like the intimacy you got out of the techno jargon in that first bit...

    1. Hi Brian, that is true we need to remember to live our lives not just capture the moments. Living, breathing and feeling alive is a good thing.

    1. I think I would much rather have a human touch..see a smile, hear a voice all the things we humans do well.

  9. freeing space in our heart...i think that is the core here for me... not just capturing the moments but free to embrace them

  13. lovely capture... Those memories are little films... smiles... inserted into our brains, like a floppy disc in a computer tower.

    1. Hi Anthony - I wonder how many of those disc are taking up space out there. Our brains really are mini computers in many ways.

  14. Moments we capture and hold onto, reloading at will or sometimes they reload without us even thinking, out of the blue. Not sure floppy disks can hold much though haha

    1. That is true reloading sometimes when we least expect and it makes us pause to reflect.

  15. Very clever, and positive, take on the prompt. I like the link with movies and the idea that good moments can be reloaded.

    1. I guess we need to decide what memories to store and which ones to delete.

    1. I am sure you do have a story or two and I can't wait to read your book "Woven" when it is released I am sure it will be amazing.

  18. Nice view of technology. I like how you infused a romantic aspect to it. Very creative.

  19. I remember hearing our words are never lost - they bounce around the universe. Maybe memories do, too. The happy ones, I hope.
