I'm back in psychiatric hospital, but hopefully for not too long. This one is a good one at least.
Just had a rough patch. I haven't needed the ward for 2 years, and I don't think this will be a long stay.
Thanks for your support though this time.
Feel free to interpret the painting how you feel, I'd love to hear your understanding of it 💙
Peace, Love and Alone Time,
I hope you'll feel better soon wishing you all the luck
I am not all better.
I am so, so lost.
Congrats on not needing the ward for two years. That's impressive!
I'll send some prayers your way, Blue. <3
Your style/skills is so great !
I can't give you an interpretation to this drawing because the message is so clear, there is no place for interpretation, this is my point of view !
I like very much this one because he make me think to "yin and yang symbol" not with the bright and the dark on either side but with the cold and the warm from down to up ... i think it's the ondulate from the wave at the surface who give me this impression...
There is a lot of different people who can help us to find where is the problem and what is wrong with ourselves, and we need them clearly, but there is only one person who can act for the change, for his lifestyle improvement ... oneself ... in person ...
As we say in HipHop culture :
strength and courage for the future of the events (your future) and May peace accompany you along the path you will follow
Always remember that there are many people who care about you: Friends, family, and maybe even a few people here on deviantart.
Six months ago I had a little sister. She felt she was alone. The depression was very hard on her. She was loved by many but for some reason she didn't see it herself. It pains me to know that there are still so many people who grieve for her and would do anything to see her smile again.
Never lose hope. There's always people who you can call at any time of the day.
Now believe me when I say it that life is really worth it and you are loved by many.
Whenever someone was having a hard time or was going to face something in life (be it exams, a journey, sickness) my late grandmother used to say “I’ll light a candle for you”.
This little guiding light was her way of showing her support, that she was thinking of you.
Here’s my little candle for you.
1) Doesn't the water + light look like angelic wings? So much so if the person (!) under water stretched out, hands outward, legs together plus straight downward, the glowing water would be like her wings.
2) Call of the search and yet there is light. Ever been in a situation where you were dead tired and your eyes were totally zonked out and fried and yet still you could watch some flick on youtube? Where did the power to watch come from?
~~~> From within and without. Strangely enough, light seems to works that way.
3) Please hang in there . . . ____/!\____
This is what I see when I look at this work. Years ago I wrote this, it is as true for me now, as it was then. “Society is a riot of color, in the dark all is gray. Only in the dark do we see and feel what we are. Only in the dark do we breed our desires without fear. Only in the dark do the edges mater. Society attempts to force conformity with light and noise. Here in the dark there is freedom from pain and for pain.” I seek the wilderness often for a different complexity. Nature’s complexity makes more sense to me.
In this work I see that man’s works are more transient on the sea. In its embrace there is peace and freedom to find ourselves, to re-balance my life. The sea is dark and it teams with life. I have always found peace on and in the water. I dive. The world of man… Now more than ever is a place I steer clear of as I can.
Please rest as you can…. It is through your art that people all over the world fine things that draw them and hopefully provide them with ways to look inside themselves to better understand there interactions with the world.
This is a beautiful depiction. I imagine the surface world is real life, and she's planning to stay away from it for a while, retracting into her own mind. Incidentally, when I meditate, I often begin by envisioning myself sinking down into an immense deep dark ocean where everything is still and silent and I don't need to focus on anything, so this resonates with me ^^
What I have found is that the one submerged, must muster the incredible strength, hope, and/or desperation to stick their arm out of that water. That is to not say the submerged doesn't have strength if they don't do this as it requires great strength to stay submerged, but they must do so to the right individual. For me, once I discovered what ailed me, I had to rail against my being of 25 years and stick my arm out of the water. A therapy center clasped my hand, and they soon led me gently to a proper therapist whom then took my hand in their stead. I don't speak as once with undeniable truth. This is all recent, but this is what I am taking away from my experience.
Of course there is a time to stay hidden and be small. It is a precarious balance of being able to recognize what is needed; should I stay hidden or reach out. I haven't figured it out yet.
I'm happy to see that you are feeling better.
but my light i cannot see. a few glimmers here and there. but maybe that's just the moon reflecting? i guess ill just go on searching for people that i can help instead, at least that keeps me busy (until im in bed and try to sleep)
You are there, so close and may even be within reach but the den of the sirens is where i am currently home and there lies an embrace of cold affection i find for myself, do not leave but do not wretch me from my cradle of deep blue, i will join you all once the surface and still water beckon me home"
Sorry got a little lost in there x.x this is just incredible and tells a story without words, your work never ceases to amaze, i'm happy to have heard you were getting the support in time of need, you don't need me to tell you that many of us will continue to be right here for you with each our own hand and light to offer in the dark and with a stumble
Pretty sure my interpretation is not so much out there as confusing
