Journal History

You - yes, you! :iconpussinbootsplz:
Do you know there are billions of people breathing the same air as you? sharing your water supply? people who like the same foods as you, people that think the foods you love are horrible;
Have you ever stopped to consider just how many human beings are living within a mile or of your home?
For some of you, just trying to imagine what one person's life is like can be hard. I dont think anyone of us could imagine what it could be like, living a different life to you, with different values to you.... but do those differences matter?

Have you ever stopped, dropped everything and spent an afternoon in meditation?
Do you ever feel inclined to?
Most people have different approaches to this too - some focus on a question;
though to always focus on the same question can, of course, send you quite, quite mad :crazy:
others try to quiet all forms of thought, block out everything and let their soul drift away from their body.... which is nice.
others try to think their way through life, working out all the creases of their existence mentally so they are prepared better for what may come.
others still follow strict meditation, such as prayer, or using mantras.
While each of these approaches have merit, none alone can bring you closer to your true self,
the deep conciousness, that we all know resides deep within.
no matter your belief structure, no matter your creed or social bearing, every human being should try to bring themselves a little closer to that spirit within... or they will never understand themselves.

So... yeah.
I been thinking about how weird it is to live in a city today. there are a about a million people living with a ten mile radius of here.
out of those uncountable masses, i know few, and will never even meet half of them, even though they live so close to me.
On a map of the world, England looks very small. but from here on the ground it stretches immeasurably, from the atlantic to the north sea.... hundreds of square miles of green pastures, forests, woodlands, fells and dales, castles, canals, villages, hamlets, townships, farms.... with mountain ranges, meandering rivers honeycombed throughout, caves resting down deep below the soil, waterfalls and over fifty kinds of sheep.
:iconsheepplz:

In my time I have met and talked at length with farmers, and gangsters, gays and skinheads, timid people, brash people,
soldiers and veterans, stable owners and market stall holders.
Each of which had their merits, each of which had their vices and their pitfalls.
Often I would ask them if they meditated. It's a good question to ask, you can usually get a good guage of their personality by their answer to this one question.
No two people i have ever met are alike.....
yet they all somehow fit a stereotype.
This is important. think about that. I'm sure you, as a person, will not (of course not) fit a stereotype...
but you will notice how everyone else around you does.
ain't that creepy?
well, heres the really creepy part.
You do too. so do i.
we cant escape it, it works without us trying. its narrative causality. we are made what we are by our name, our childhood and our responses to certain things that happen in each of our unique lives.
and yet.... there is no "normal" person out there. I would even go so far as to say there is no such thing.
every single one of you is different, from your molecular structures to your hairstyles, lifestyle choices to even what allergies you have. work on those unique qualities, and forget about the world and its dumb categories once in a while.
well, there. I gone and ranted again.
I would put some more icons up here but i got all serious and stuff there for a moment.

Simon Park
Artist | Hobbyist | Traditional Art
United Kingdom
Traditional Artist, I work mainly with biro's, fineliners,
cheap pencil crayons and pencils in an attempt to create honest works of art.

My work stems mainly from soul searching, meditation, and a passion for nature and the world around me. I am a follower of almost buddhistic teachings and think this reflects in my work too.

I do commissions for points too =P

we think therefore we am, right?
XD


Current Residence: Earth (help!)
Print preference: canvas
Favourite genre of music: anything with soul
Favourite style of art: landscapes and Surrealistic inclinations more and more as time goes by
Shell of choice: silver and disc shaped
Wallpaper of choice: allsorts of posters
Skin of choice: grey and wrinkly with LARGE black eyes O.O
Favourite cartoon character: I am a cartoon character
Personal Quote: Tempus may well fugit but im sick of this sh*t.
