After a long time of heard studies at school I´m finally finding time to start with a little blogging again 🙂 Also I have worked on changing the image to fit both my main page and my blog, and I feel very happy with my changes.
Today I choose to post this image that I took by an old cleanery near an old village in Crete, Greece. Its one of my favourite places on earth, this used to function as a cleanery and meeting place for the women of the village in the old days. Whenever I walk here I feel such a strangely good feeling, and it makes me wonder what this place could have been used for other then functioning as a cleanery for these women… maybe like some kind of free haven for them that the men would never enter, and they would feel free to speak their mind and be there for each other… I dont know.. all i know is that is amazing to be there and at least feels like a haven to me…
William Blake is also a big inspiration to me, he’s art and writing are beautiful both in looks and content. He’s engravings, drawings and paintings are free and full of expression. This poem is one of my favorites and I would like to share it with you, so that who knows…. maybe one of you will find inspiration in Blakes work as well.
As I feel quite inspired these days, I will now start to add my drawings to this page as well. And perhaps even some written words of poetry. I really feel like I want this blog to also show me, and the many ways I like to express my creativity. Why not? I guess I will finally take the chance to lay it all out there, and have this blog as my true channel of expression. It makes me happy, feeling like my blog is finally part of me in the way I always wanted it to. So… I welcome you to Dysnomia….
After reading Tracie Louises blog yesterday, it gave me the inspiration to take a good look back into what used to really inspire me in the past. And I decided I will add this page as a tribute to all that inspire me. Being everything from a bird to an artist, a river or a melody… everything.
Today, as my first post in this new part of my blog, i will dedicate it to one of the first big inspirations I can remember. A painting by Salvador Dalí. This painting, or more precisely, this part of the painting made me get back into drawing again when I was around 14 years old. This little creature opened up a whole new door to my inner imagination, and gave me a way to for the first time really express the world inside me just waiting to get out. If you see the little angel like creature down between the elephants long legs, slightly to the right…? There it is… my little muse….
