The survivors will bloom

“The world is a dangerous place.
Not because of those who do evil,
but because of those who look on and do nothing”.
– Albert Einstein

The survivors will bloom in green, and the earth is going to renew once again, but at a moment, we see just the neutral colors.  So the art test of our patience.  The survivors will bloom. Would it be you?

Creativity examines my being here and now. 

People with disabilities have much time to dream at a window, and the last is a want of many of the busy world’s citizens. Comprehension of such reality questioned me why I don’t share what I have so much. Consequently, Arthiker – Art by Tomas Karkalas – blog was opened and fantasy was met.

Now each new day demands the new post, so the need of thought for a post makes me responsible for my tomorrow. Responsibility makes me grow despite my old age.

my story

We all have heard that looking at something and seeing something there are two different things. Yet what does the above mean?

what we see depends on our heart, not on the glasses we wear. Only reflections of available photos depend on the tools available to us.

This shot wasn’t thought in advance. This picture of the heart has happened out of itself. It’s like my own destiny. Contrary to the onion that was used in the kitchen’s pot, I was returned to life after the terrible accident in 1974… therefore I am like these shelling now. Though the long walk on the edge of the death was stopped, my diagnosis wasn’t enjoying.  The doctors put down clearly “unfit for life”…                                        
Though it’s hard to enjoy the above photo, it is impossible not to recognize the shape of the heart there too. Have a look. Do you see a face?

It’s me.

The eyes that are looking at you depict my friendship. The disabled sees the light.

The spiritual healing by the fine arts starts at a moment we recognize ourselves in others 

Life’s secret

The wish to share the artworks with you looks nicely , and that can’t be otherwise.

loneliness and  meaningless are inseparable between.

light’s gate

Tomas Karkalas' photo
disability indicated a dead end but love broke through the walls of me

This photo as if expresses an overview of my life. If one would look at me the picture may come dark because I am out of work and money because of a disability. Nevertheless, I rejoice over the sun outside because my family cared for me and enabled me to paint.

There is no such thing as loneliness, teach us the heart. – Just look under your feet. Many portraits disguised as scattered stones. Click “what’s next?” to read their story

the unknown face

the pavement of the old town looked nice, but it was very difficult to go. anyway, now i’m happy for those troubles because I had to watch closely where I put my feet. That is why I saw the eyes looking at me from the pavement . Already the raised leg stagnates in the air. Would I dare to set my foot upon the stranger? I just couldn’t step on that unknown face .
Therefore I took a picture of him and share it with you as a reminder “Be more attentive. The Earth Speaks . It Lives “

Visual thinking is always a slogan worth reflecting on.
