Another badly needed revision to a previous image. A lesson in not settling or compromising, I guess, but I was never happy in the execution of the original, and I remember wanting it finished because it was a self portrait for my birthday this year, and I was compelled to call it done for that reason, even though it was not. So, forgive the repeat, but this one is more what I wanted.

Notes from the original:

a final image on the theme of time and aging and mortality, on this, my birthday.

To-morrow, and to-morrow, and to-morrow,
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day,
To the last syllable of recorded time;
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!
Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player,
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage,
And then is heard no more. It is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing. - Shakespeare

proud to be the first voter and commentor on it.. a tribute in my own way.

up ye look where ye shall settle
amidst clouds and angels you have to travel
all the bonds hither will be lost
and thither who knows what you may got

but here you lived not, ye shall know
death is only a moment, just a little part of life
but you lived it your whole life (fretting about it)
you have lived a million deaths, not life.

a very powerful image, which will bring out the the best of one's own stories..

Regards.

Inspirational words, and a piece of work which has been so beautifully crafted, a great sentiment to your undoubted talent, and of which I admire greatly.

I am afraid that creative and inspirational work such as this will go sadly ignored on this site where originality is more or less entirely frowned upon and the mundane is praised.
