Tramp kids by the Ria, 1978

I hope you enjoy the photos that I'm sharing with you in this message board; I have many many more but the "tramp kids" picture is one of my favourites. I wasn't the photographer on this one, it was my uncle. This photo is amazing <img border="0" title="" alt="[Cool]" src="cool.gif" />

hi miss "major crisis" ! smile

i really like your work ... & i suppose that i also understand your desire to "do it" - so to say - & maybe ... i even understand u as a person ... not only because my own life is "a major crisis" in itself currently ... & once again !!! :rolleyes:

anyway ... please ALWAYS continue to express yourself in an artistic way ... even if u have the feelin' that nobody really understands u or your deeper desire to "do it" , as it sometimes takes a whole lifetime for most of the people on this planet to understand each other the way they should do actually , as i've learned from my own life experiences already by now ... *sigh*

however ... SEIZE_THE_DAY ... CHERISH_THE_MOMENT ... KEEP_THE_FAITH ... BELIEVE_IN_FRIENDSHIP ... & HOPE_FOR_THE_BEST_!!! smile

yours sincerely ,

Hi <img border="0" title="" alt="[Cool]" src="cool.gif" />
and thank you, The Voice.
I feel that I should be more responsible about my work, whether it is writing or sound or whatever but I've been so concerned with Politics and Religion that I tend to neglect all my capacities on an artistic level. I'm so worried about 'being' and doing it right.

It's a great feeling to get a reply like yours; it brings enthusiasm and motivation.
and yes, HAHAHAHAHAHA I understand when you say your life is a 'major crisis', so is mine :p
Thank you bunches

hi again , miss "major crisis" ! smile

btw : u can call me olaf !!! wink

well ... sometimes in life our artistic expressions get "lost" somehow , because ev'ryday life keeps us ( too ) busy & @ the end of the day , we are simply too exhausted to do anythin' else then ... which is exactly the way i feel today !!! *phew*

we should learn to make some short breaks in between & then let our creativity jus' flow ... smile
that's actually , when it works best for me ... anyway !!!

however ... always tryin' to be "good" & doin' things right will indeed only distract us from bein' really "good" @ whatever we do , because we are so concerned & worried about "doin' the right thing" that it most likely won't work out that way !!! shocked

therefore i suggest that especially such sensitive people like u & me take a step back instead & that "serenity may lead us on its path into a fearless future ..." wink

it won't take long & our usual enthusiasm & the much needed motivation will kick in again & works miracles actually !!! *utmost_convinced_smile*

so it's not jus' "nice" , but simply NECESSARY - as i've already posted in another thread in my own "ev radio" sub-category of this forum - to get some feedback from others to let us see things in a diff'rent light maybe ... or jus' feel supported in one way or the other !!! smile

btw : i suppose that i really FEEL , what u feel too , miss "major crisis" - no matter , how silly this may sound to the great majority of people - & we can both support each other therefore !!!

p. s. : your voice somehow reminded me very much - but in a positive way smile - of the one of tori chlumsky from canada , which is also a very interestin' "new" artist ( see http://www.indiscover.net/owner.php?id=68 for example , as her own website is currently down ) !!!

however ... in all honesty ,

Hello Olaf
smile
once again thank you, I will check the website you suggested. and yours too, I know a little bit of german.

I am not very well today, last november a friend suicided and yesterday another friend threaten to do so, he left the city and nobody knows where he is. I'm in a mess because both of them were a bit more than friends to me and I'm starting to wonder what kind of effect I have on people, specially people with drug problems and problems in socializing. this leads to existential problems and also the fact that most people of my age are going through some sort of crisis about working, nobody is satisfied with their jobs, this society is too competitive and for souls like me and these friends it's very hard to find peace of mind.
I am very worried about this, but maybe this isn't the place to talk about it. it's a very long and complicated story. I'm very bothered by the way young people see Art today, specially music. everybody wants to be rich and famous and lead an unhealthy life. I can't stand the rock n' roll image anymore.
when I said I'm trying to be alright and focusing on my health I was refering to my addictions. I was 13 years addicted to heroin and my life has been very complicated in all levels of existance.
now all my energies are concentrated on growing inside, making myself better because I do believe in happyness and the simple things in life.

and sure we can support each other (out of curiosity, once I had a friend from Hagen, Germany, and his name was Olaf too). I'm very happy to have you as a friend.

and please, call me Ana
smile

dear ana ,

it's really nice to know that u even understand a lil' bit of my mother tongue , so we could maybe chat or phone one day & if my english won't work anymore , i could tell u in german , what i think & how i feel about certain things in life !!! smile

believe it or not , but i understand u perfectly , dear ana !!! *sigh*
i've been there too ... more than once & had my times of deepest depressions & even suicidal tendencies , where only music & a very few TRUE_FRIENDS help me through this "dark ages" of my life !!!
i really think that u are very much like me - a very sensitive person , who wants to take care & help others ... mostly without askin' for anythin' in return & jus' offerin' a helpin' hand totally unconditional !!!

sadly in today's world we are complete "outsiders" , who won't get back what we are willin' & also able to give , because the pure greed of the great majority of people on this planet is simply too "established" in society & also in their minds to change from one day to the other , so it will take a rather long time for us to change it - even if such events like "live 8" or somethin' similar will help us all to @ least think some further about , where mankind in general has already drifted off or will drift off very soon , if we don't stand up united & jus' say "STOP_IT_NOW_!!!" , simply because it's all sooo wrong !!! frown

basically it takes 3 things to change the world for the better : the persistent will to do it , the unity of like-minded people , who'll continue to devote their lives against all odds for this greater cause & the humbleness to accept its capacious consequences - no matter , how hard they might ever be !!!

please don't get me wrong , but i'm NOT some kind of religious or otherwise fanatic , but i DEFINITELY know , where i stand & also where i want to go in life - without the shadow of a doubt ... even if some people may not believe or like this fact !!!

[ ... ]

u are maybe right that this jus' isn't the right place to talk so openly about it & therefore i suggest that we discuss this & other matters privately some deeper & further , if u want to ... & also like or even need someone to talk to , dear ana !!! smile
jus' send me a private mail to olaf_juerss @ web.de ( without the spaces in between , of course wink ) & i'll even send u my telephone number in return , if u like to talk to me directly then !!! wink
