I really appreciate all of you and this community. Feelings of alienation are quickly dispatched knowing there are a multitude of you out there who see untapped beauty in the darker corners of the world and share it. Who feel catharsis through connection with darker culture and know it is not a true reflection of their sum, just a facet of what intrigues them. They speak of the abyss and gazing into it, how you should be wary of the beast that stares back...what they never told you...was the abyss is nothing more than a mirror. How are we to understand the cycles we find ourselves perpetually caught in if we never reflect upon our darkest, most hidden, motivations and drives? Do not ever be afraid of what you may find inside yourself, just strive to understand the machinations of the beast that moves you, so you may move it along pathways of your own construction. I wish all of you all the love and all the luck in all the world, -SJ

I really appreciate the kind words. I try to see the beauty in the dark and death's natural place within the cycle as well as what death can mean on a symbolic level. I really liked learning about the folklore of Mahastangarh and really look forward to hearing more about the myths of your country.

Have a good one,


Dude, your gallery is creepy as Hell. I like it!

Much appreciated :D

Awesome gallery!

Thanks for the kind words and watching!
