The Legion of Honor – part two – ancient artifacts

larrysmusings

There were various ancient artifacts on display from ancient Egypt and the Greco-Roman world of antiquity.

Do we, when we view and appreciate such ancient artifacts, connect in a sense with the past?

In this first picture, we see a bird (raven?) in sculpted relief (in stone).  The artistry and the effort that went into this work is noteworthy.

Even from a distance, this work is eye-catching and impressive.

This informational plaque tells us that the next piece is “the torso of a god”. 

Although only a fragment of the original work, we are captivated by its beauty, simplicity and its age.

An ibis in stone is seen next.

The hunt with a predator (some type of large feline) and its fallen prey (ibex?) is depicted here.  The harsh and cruel facts of nature and life have always made an impression on man.  Here, we are poignantly reminded that death…

Peace

Sincere

Can I always say and do the right thing,
I only want to bring uplifting vibes,
I’m a peaceful man,
I just have a hard time being able to stand being bothered,
If I’m minding my business why can’t people mind thiers,
No one cares about my problems or if I’m upset,
So I try not to project my feelings onto others,
God help me control my emotions,
God help me be the man you want me to be,
I want to be perfect,
That’s an impossibility,
What is a possibility is faith and self restraint,
Easier said than done where I’m from,
I got to give more time to the man upstairs,
So down here on earth I can find some real Peace.

Faith — Orlando Espinosa

Jesus Message.

KINDNESS

Jesus Message.

My beautiful family I left the earth and returned to heaven and as promised you received the holy Spirit for those who worked for me until I returned. Now the time will come when I return and gather those who have been faithful to me. Those that have not will reap what they have sown. You all look out at the world and it is as I said it would be. There many intellectuals and are imposters. There are many people with contacts among the rich and famous and speak well but act never like a person of my heart. Yet I ask of many of the poor and downtrodden and they serve me above all. It was the same in the times I came among you so it is no surprise. The key was to serve me and gain a freedom that will bring glory upon you…

My lovely Krazy K, a-floating in the ether!?

KINDNESS

“HEAVEN’S IN MY HEART OF HEARTS!” a poem Sunday: Sept. 16, 2018 {painting: “{He}artform Yen,” acrylic & charcoal}

We love to talk of Heaven, descriptions & assumptions,*

Such poor ideas (after-millenia!) – our thoughts? are merely “bump(k)-tions!”

My lovely Krazy K, a-floating in the ether!?

What’s left of her? Right here-HER BODY! & we, of course, have “wreathed” her,

And NOW, we speculate:

“Her soul – has gone UP THERE!”

Our-descriptions are preposterous! I miss here smile and hair;

I miss her laugh and touch – I miss her smell, so sweet –

But, she will never leave me – for every day I greet,

My angel in my Heart of Hearts; it’s Heaven there for us.

Our memories! Our perfect love – Our-Heaven?=

TOGETHERNESS!

fin. ❤

* – Divine – and other!!
