I came across this quote over at PSDTUTS, in a tutorial for creating the above spectacular grass text effect in Photoshop.

Love, Friendship, and Art

by admin Mar 17, 2008 1 Comment

A letter Ansel Adams, an icon of landscape photography, sent to his friend Cedric Wright on June 10, 1937

Dear Cedric,

A strange thing happened to me today. I saw a big thundercloud move down over Half Dome, and it was so big and clear and brilliant that it made me see many things that were drifting around inside of me; things that relate to those who are loved and those who are real friends.

For the first time I know what love is; what friends are; and what art should be.

Love is a seeking for a way of life; the way that cannot be followed alone; the resonance of all spiritual and physical things….

Friendship is another form of love — more passive perhaps, but full of the transmitting and acceptances of things like thunderclouds and grass and the clean granite of reality.

Art is both love and friendship and understanding: the desire to give. It is not charity, which is the giving of things. It is more than kindness, which is the giving of self. It is both the taking and giving of beauty, the turning out to the light of the inner folds of the awareness of the spirit. It is a recreation on another plane of the realities of the world; the tragic and wonderful realities of earth and men, and of all the interrelations of these.

Ansel

Lao TzuThe thirty spokes unite in the one center; but it is on the empty space for the axle that the use of the wheel depends. Clay is fashioned into vessels; but it is on their empty hollowness that their use depends. The door and windows are cut out from the walls to form an apartment; but it is on the empty space that its use depends. Therefore, whatever has existence serves for profitable adaptation, and what does not have existence for actual usefulness.
- Lao Tzu
Tao Ching, (The Book of Changes)

Happy New Year

Happy New Year 2008
2007 was a memorable year both for me and the world in general, especially in the way the green revolution has taken off. However, it was a slow year for this blog. Even though, as an optimist, I am looking forward to a great year in 2008, and looking forward to sharing more of my thoughts and views on this blog; I feel 2008 might be a very challenging year.

This could be a year where we face more issues related to our destruction of the environment, more extinctions, more global conflicts along the lines of religion and race, and more economic turmoils due to a degrading dollar and shift of economic growth from west to east. But, I hope everyone can come together, think and work as one, to solve problems which are common to all of us, and make it the year humanity decided to make a quantum leap.

I wish all of you a 2008 which is not just about happiness, but about making revolutionary changes. Enjoy the wallpaper and Good Karma!

Bhagat SinghKoi dam ka mehman hun ai ahle mehfil/ Charaagh-e-sehar hun bujhnaa chaahta hun/ Meri hawa men rahegi khayaal ki bijli Yeh musht-e-khaaq hai faani, rahe na rahe

‘O friends of the gathering, I am just a guest of the last few breaths/ I’m a lamp of the morning about to burn out/ My ideas will fly in the winds like the flashes of lightening/ My body is only a heap of dust, it may or may not be there.
- Bhagat Singh – reportedly written in a letter hours before being hanged

Good-bye

Etymology: alteration of God be with you

That sure can put an atheist in a dilemma!
