I was living for a dream, loving for a moment
Taking on the world, that was just my style
Now I look into your eyes
I can see forever, the search is over
You were with me all the while
Sirvivor - The Search is Over

without this piece and tens of others in my gallery would not exsist. A person who I, maybe, have taken too granted and not shown her the support and graditude she really deserves for being around.
I have no words to describe what I have been feeling lately but I have had no motivation, no wish nor will to make any manips. I even have had time and tons of ideas but I just could not open my photoshop and work on image. And I am sure after the first try, I would have trown this away unless there wouldn't have been those people around me, who all thought I should continue and like a miracle this image did manage to come up something that I feel I could upload in my gallery.
The story.. I adore the song. If there has been anything good coming out of watching American Idol, then that I found that song. The presentation there was quite awful but I could not my mind from the lyrics.. How many times we have been searching for love, friend, comfort, support or strenght and after long search realize the people from who we find it all was standing besides us all the time we were just too blind to realize it? How many times have we been trying to cope with our problems not realizing that shared burden is half the weight to carry? And how we sometimes forget those people around us are not for granted.. All those thoughts were the reasons that pushed me torwards making this image.
And even if the song talks about finsing love.. we are all seekers in our life.. looking for purpose.. looking for place where to belong.. and I feel very lost lately.. without purpose.. without knowing why I am even going on.. and I like to think maybe that was her story too - not knowing her place in the big puzzle, living for a dream.. wandering and dreaming.. looking for beauty in the dark.. and I think the answers she was looking were all with her from the first moment.. they all were hidden inside her.. tha magic comes from our heart.. and I think I tried to capture the happiness, realization that she can live in harmony with herself.. capturing the peace, joy.. of realizing the endless search of answers has ended and all she ever wished is around her.. those little butterflies try to symbolice those answers.. those things she was looking for..
I can only hope I will find my answers soon..MarjoleinART-Stock
