In answer to your questions. The title is revealing, but not overly so. I had to read the poem in its entirety to understand how the ti...

My Artistic Philosophies.

Truth is the essence of all art; to look deeper, beyond physical reality and expose the truth that is woven beneath the surface, its purpose.

It is also the purpose of art to not only tell us the truth of ourselves, but to provide an appreciation of all that we have.

Art has no survival value, but instead is one of those things, like friendship and love, which give value to survival. And so, art should never be turned to hate or despair, but should encourage and show an appreciation for those things which make life worth living.

I'm an antisocial dark wizard, now bring me some coffee before I turn you into an axolotl :laughing:

Thank you for all faves, llamas, comments, critiques, point donations, features and anything else. They are all appreciated, and I'll probably thank you individually, but thought I'd put up a general thank you in the event I should overlook or miss anyone. :)

If I miss a piece of your artwork, that you particularly want more feedback on, comment or note me with a link and I'll get to it as soon as I'm able. :)

I hit my first major hurdle in my recovery from drug addiction a few days ago. Circumstances, and my inability to refuse certain of my friends, lead to my being in a situation where I was exposed to my major addiction substances for the first time since leaving rehab. 
My best friend and partner in crime (and substance abuse) needed someone to take care of his dog, last minute. He'd refuse me nothing if I asked, and I'm the same with him, so naturally I stepped up, and all was well.... Until about an hour into my dogsitting, when he texted me, making sure the dog was okay and to tell me to help myself to his stash. (Which up to that point I hadn't even thought about.) It was like going through withdrawals all over again. I became restless and fidgety as the cravings came rushing back. I wanted a high so bad it was like a physical ache. Eventually I couldn't take it any more, and I knew I was close to caving to the craving.
So I took the dog for a walk. I reached the next town (6 miles away) by the time I had cleared my head. Suffice to say, my return was to my place, well away from temptation. My friend had meant to be nice, and once upon a time, not so very long ago, it would have been. But as a recovering addict, he just made things really difficult for me.
Please, if you know someone who is a recovering addict, be mindful of their addictions and don't place temptation in their paths. 

On a brighter note, I practically bounced home today, after a random conversation with a complete stranger (read: super pretty redhead) resulted in compliments and a new contact in my phone. [Insert Stupid Smile Here] 
Doing some grocery shopping, I got caught behind the aforementioned hottie at the till (cash register/checkout for my non-British watchers (which is all of you, I think.)) There was some dispute about a special offer the store was running, and wanting to get on with my day, I interrupted to get things moving. Using my past (and limited) law studies, I got the store to honour the offer. And thanking me for my assistance, I ended up helping hottie to her car with her groceries. There was some chat and banter, which resulted in: "Intelligent, funny and good looking... You must be taken!" Which had me grinning from ear to ear like a complete idiot. But she must have thought it was cute, because after telling her I'm not taken, she gave me her number and told me to call her sometime. 

So all in all, a testing but rewarding week for me. :D
