I once had this up but then took it down from my gallery. for one reason or another, maybe felt it wasnt that good. then again, im the only one i really have to please with my work. it might not be wallpaper worthy but im sure we all have one or two in our galleries to personalize them as ours. so with a little help on my poor grammer from a good friend Mesmerized she also gave me the link to the vintage paper I used from""

On one very cold, dark, winding, snowing, night. with the howling winds outside an old farm house on the country side. inside a fire burning to keep warm from in the fire place across the room, also some help from a throw blanket wrapped around in. after editing some pics and about to call it a night. i just started jotting down some thoughts into words and...more soon followed. before i knew it, the night was over, so was the snow storm...that was one long cold winter! been here 18 yrs and dont remember another one like it, until the next yr thats the truth..2 in row

I had no name for it, so Mesmerized gave me a few to think over, one choice was "Vestige" and so it became!

I like it! I don't remember seeing it before, but I'm glad you uploaded it again. I downloaded it, so your name has spread that little bit further. :-) Perhaps it will be found on my hard drive when I've passed on. (Mournful sigh).

I think as artists we are rushed too much these days... have to speed-paint, only pay attention to focal areas (otherwise it's too 'busy') and we don't have time anyway... they say. This isn't right. It might be different for others, but I do better if I take my time.

I know it's called a poem, but to me it's a 'painting' with words, Chris!
Perfectly done!

I believe it is something that we can all relate too , I can anyway in some form. I like seeing some insight into Stylo and others should be as brave. This presentation is a work of art.

Beautifully presented an a most thought provoking poem.
As has already been said, many of us will be able to relate to it.

I still believe though that the most precious things we leave behid are memories, and it is up to us to make them happy ones.

The title is perfect.

My thanks to all who leave comments for my work and to those of you who like one enough to make it a favourite. To touch just one person that way makes each image worthwhile. . . . . . . . . .. . . . "The question is not what you look at, but what you see" ~ Marcel Proust
