Exploring Broad-Spectrum Patterns of Organic Energy

John Martin (July 19, 1789 – February 17, 1854)

Vastness is his sphere, yet he has not lost or circumfused his genius in its space; he has chained and wielded and measured it at his will… He has penetrated the remote caverns of the past and gazed on the primeval shapes of the gone world.

If I obstinately refuse all the ‘later on’s’ of this world, it is because I have no desire to give up my present wealth. I do not want to believe that death is a gateway to another life. For me, it is a closed door…Everything people suggest seeks to deliver man from the weight of his own life. But as I watch the great birds flying heavily through the sky of Djemila, it is precisely a certain weight of life that I ask for and obtain.

NOTE: I don’t usually participate in blog tours, but I’m such a fan and admirer of Realm Lovejoy (learn that name and remember it!) that I couldn’t pass up on the opportunity to help spread the word about her new novel, CLAN, and share with you the opportunity to win it. So check out this…

I must not fear. Fear is the mind killer. Fear is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will allow it to pass over me and through me. When it has gone I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.
