The sky has always been, my favourite eye seeing, heart feeling. The word human in greek is ανθρωπος, meaning '' looking high, looking towards the sky '', and this more than the ability, that we human have, has a strong connection with the virtues we all carry.
To me the sky, has a symbolic value, added to its true value, cause sometimes, when all is said, done, thought, felt, in the utter times, we all want a sky to look, a sky to love and love us back. It has been an issue of my thinkings and feelings, that the ones inprisoned, when asked, '' what to you miss more'', after the word freedom, most of the times, have as their strongest longing to see the sky, the one that we, walk under every day without glancing not for an instance. I think we live in a mirroring society.. We want to see ourselves in the mirror, and then again ourselves, through the eyes of others, when the other becomes our mirror. We take nature, sky, trees, animals, sea for granted and most of our times is through the society, build in an artificial nature.
Sky is there, not only to brings us beauty, but as a reminder of our spirituality, and the way we all our heading..if we want it, I think. It is our nature to meet our sky, after meeting our selves, our given family, our friends, our work, our bills, our chosen family, it is in our nature to meet the sky. Although, living takes us all away from the true essence of living, I always -when looking the sky-, understand that I have a long way to walk, till I can be a complete human..so complete as a travelling cloud, and as a working bird.Μοst of my work has to do with nature and feelings, so I could not resist, sharing with you all, some of my most favourite images, cause to be trully honest, I love my images, they are like friends to me. As sky is for all of us, a friend. Meet your sky in your eyes, in everyday living, inside, and make nature a constant life in life, I am always telling my self.
