There are two types of people in the world… Those who only believe information supporting their cause… Rejecting any dissonant information… And those who can morph their beliefs as new information presents… Be the latter… plant petunias and question everything – chriscondello This work is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs 3.0 Unported License.

The First Rays of Sunlight

I took a walk to Frick Park as the sun was rising… On my journey I spent a few moments watching the sun rise over an old church that was covered in pigeons… I found myself questioning whether God would consider the exorbitant amount of money spent on our places of worship money well spent… Probably not…

When I arrived to my destination the sun had yet to break the trees… As always… I sat for a while and scanned the area for stones… Having been to this spot before… I actually knew exactly where the sun would rise… I carefully chose my starter rock to be situated in front of the sun… Watching the beams of sunlight fall from the sky as the sun rose… Finally landing in all the right spots…

This photo is the result…

Sculptural Energy

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

“Abstract Stack” – © chriscondello 2013 – Frick Park – Pittsburgh, PA – I wish I could take a photo of how I see a landscape… Of how I see energy… But until then… This digital edit will have to do…

I long for the energy of the forest… It occupies my mind when I am not in her presence… I draw my energy from her… And In turn… I give that energy back… In my own way…

Our surroundings give off energy… Pulses and waves that are only visible to those that are willing to take the time to observe them… I consider myself one of those people… Not because I am special… But because I know how to listen…

You see… Energy is all around us… We may not physically see it… But we all feel it… Sometimes… The energy can be so strong that I have to drop everything that I am doing… Just to stop for a moment and listen… To understand… Because when I stop and listen… I always learn something… I always come out the other side in a better place… Regardless of content…

When I find a place with positive… Or negative energy… I tend to gravitate towards it… I long for it… Not long ago… I was a source of negative energy… Even my positive energy was nothing more than a farce intended to draw your mind away from the fact that I was in a great deal of pain… I believe that this is part of the reason I now see everything as energy… I was exposed to so much of the bad stuff… That when my mind awakened enough to feel again… I was completely overloadeded by the good stuff… Once I figured out a comfortable balance point… I have been able to balance the feelings out…

Now… When I walk… Or meditate… I rarely see the physical as the primary element in a landscape… I observe energy… I harness the energy… And in some cases… I attempt to channel that energy through my sculptures… My sculptures are intended to be a beacon of energy… They are the X on my map… These are the places where the earth either sings praise… Or screams bloody murder… Where the energy is good… My sculptures channel that energy… Only releasing it when someone is willing to observe… On the opposite end… When the energy is bad… My sculptures absorb it… Channel it… And by the simple act of drawing attention to a specific area… Converts the negative energy to positive energy…

When I don’t have a chance to go out and work in nature… My spirit hurts… The simple act of making my little stone sculptures… No matter how irrelevant people think it is… Is a requirement to my spiritual well-being… It is now a part of me… It is my little way to affect my surroundings and make my world a little nicer… And hopefully… Make your world a little nicer in the process…

Beauty and the Bad Trip

100_1902How many battles must you fight… Before you get a grip… Before I find a way… To end this bad trip… Negativities stench fills the room… And floats off to the sky… Lose that extra baggage… And let your soul fly…

Turn off the fucking TV… Life’s not measured in screen size… Stand up and go outside… Observe nature and you will realize… Even when the earth is dirty… She can be cleaned… The ultimate sentient being… The definition of serene…

Life is a hard reality… That’s sad but a fact… Sometimes we need to take the time… To enjoy the pleasantly abstract… The only person I need is you… Someone who can let it be… With dreams as far… As the eye can see…

Somewhere over the rainbow… Is a pot of gold… A dream we all have… Young or old… We all have a princess… We all have a soul… Basically in the end… We’re all put in a hole…

I don’t give a damn about your money… Backed by the souls of those rotting in hell… Crushed by the weight of your debt… In one devastating oceanic swell… Money is not a bad thing… But greed is a waste… Grab life by the fucking reigns… Before you are erased…

if you only look for beauty, beauty is all you will find – chriscondello
