I absolutely love this image. . . It creates a sense of mixed up calmness. . . All of the connected circles remind me that everything is connected - even if it is for a brief passing moment. . . I just think it carries a crucial meaning regarding life and the universe. . . peace, balance and harmony!

I appreciate this piece because it reminds me that everything in the universe is connected . . . maybe not a large connection, but even a tiny sliver. . .I think it is beautiful!

...That is just so freaking amazing. The way everything is connected and radiating out...I feel like I'm falling through time and space or something. Or I got tangled up in a sea chart. :D It's all directions, but I think I got lost, but it's such a wonderful place to get lost in! And yay for the Moby Dick tribute!
