Thank you for the support and stars.
ooops MY pleasure, not Mount Pleasure!
Though you have to admit that Mt Pleasure would surely be a killer name for a vacation spot!
LOL or a porn film!

This is deep Fotios, and so full of parody in such a post-modern world

The message is shouting at us but unfortunately too many just ignore it! This picture is so true.

That is the biggest problem, we are all guilty because we are pushed to the limit as the burden of contemporary living creates so much stress we, who have the power to do something about it, are drained emotionally, spiritually, financially, etc. and lose all motivation. We no longer have community in the west the notion of individualism has shattered the concern for anyone else. It is generations in the making and will take generations to undue. Thanks for your comment.

thank you for a moment of reflectivity..beautiful

Thank you for taking the time, it is unfortunate that the moments that bring us back to awarness of life are constantly being overwhelmed by the distractions that keep us from working towards an equitable future for all.

There are billions of us, do you think humans will ever get a handle on this before we destroy ourselves...and our "souls"...whatever that means...? very provocative work!
Posted by fotioszemenides on November 04, 2011
It's something I hope for, but am afraid will never come to pass, in my lifetime at least. I cannot imagine what catalysmic event will have to occur before our species actually starts treating each other with respect and dignity.
There are those with higher levels of awareness, and some believe that soon this positive thinking will attain "critical mass" and a shift in global thinking will occur .....it's a nice thought anyway...I choose the believe in the innate goodness of my fellow beings even though it is easy to see all the crap that is going on.
Posted by fotioszemenides on November 05, 2011
I always hope so as well. This "occupy" movement and the "arab spring" all have the potential to shift in the positive. . .but I am cautiously optimistic as those who wish to wield power are almost always the same as the tyrants they disposed of. That is why "Occupy" being leaderless actually has the best chance at suceeding, but they have a long, harsh winter facing them, I hope they can pull through.

Love this! What a message!
Posted by fotioszemenides on July 13, 2011
Thank you, its a shame that we still live in a world where the majority of our species go hungry almost every day, and even with the riches in the industrialized west, we still abandon hundreds of thousands of individuals.

What a brilliant piece of work here. A wonderful social comentary. How often we just walk by without even a glance, becuase making eye contact will make them real. Wouldnt want that would we. Please consider submitting this amazing work to the HUMANHANDS group.
Posted by fotioszemenides on June 02, 2011
Thank you for your observations, its true that there is an entire segment of humanity that is, in all intense purposes, invisible to the rest of us, and it is on the greatest shame of society to have turned on those who are truly in need.
