Last two years were rather difficult for me. For some time I lost interest in blogging and I even stopped learning painting.
Fortunately, days come after nights.
Below is my first painting of 2017.
Always remember that your thoughts, your words and your attitude decide how you live. Be active, loving and optimistic! Happy Holidays!
Live has many ups and downs. Even in the depth of depression I remembered the words of a Russian short story writer, journalist, human rights activist and humanitarian Vladimir Korolenko:
“Man is born for happiness as a bird is born to fly”.
These words helped me to overcome all problems in my lives in the Soviet Union and in US. But happiness is not possible without love. You must love yourself and it gives you immense capacity to love others.
New Year is coming. I wish that your life was a happy flight full of love!
I am now in the process of looking for a good FREE painting and photo editing program that produces images acceptable by WordPress.
The major problem I have so far is that programs I found don’t have good tutorials. I would appreciate your help in this matter.
However, in the process of experimenting with one program I got an image that I liked. It is an UNIQUE image (I am unable to recreate it).
Still I got something beautiful and it’s an achievement.
Before sharing this image with you I edited it on my PC with a program that is in it.
Please let me know if you like the image below.
It is very bad for any society when leaders consider justice from purely political point of view without regards to laws and facts.
It is even worse when facts are hidden or ignored and judges intimidated.
At his best, man is the noblest of all animals; separated from law and justice he is the worst.
In matters of truth and justice, there is no difference between large and small problems, for issues concerning the treatment of people are all the same.
Justice in the life and conduct of the State is possible only as first it resides in the hearts and souls of the citizens.
Throughout history, it has been the inaction of those who could have acted; the indifference of those who should have known better; the silence of the voice of justice when it mattered most; that has made it possible for evil to triumph.
