"Turn on, tune in, drop out"





As most of you know by now, our community has lost a dear friend and wonderful artist
who always had kind words and support for everyone of us who knew him.

Rest in peace Mark, you will be sorely missed my friend!!

        "I felt the call of the jungle, primal and clean.
         I felt my connections to the wild in every cell in my body;
         realized that I am among the trees,
         the plants, the grass, the sky. The trees know me and I am never alone.
         We are all one and we exist everywhere. It was like coming home
         to the greatest welcome back party imaginable.
         The love and purity of the trees surrounded and dazzled me.       
         I went outside to lie in the grass.
         I needed to be there, to feel the dirt beneath my feet,
         the stars above my head and the wet grass in my fingers.
         The stars were like diamonds  in a velvet black sky
         their light radiating beams of positivity and love down to us all. "

To be honest. I didn't know him.. but he faved one of my pieces I think. When I saw his profile, I was about ( I saw this once). His passion in art and photos of foxes seems to me... he was really good person. Nowdays it is hard to find someone like he was. To Mark -> I do not know you, but hope you rest in peace.

Thank you for your help as well. We don't have a Super Group, so I used only parts of your great journal. Thanks so much for your permission. :huggle:

I just love the title, so beautiful! And what a great feature, capturing the essence and spirit of this trippy guy. He gave me his support for years, and I enjoyed his wild sense of colours. I'm still in shock about this, and will miss him! :(

I didn't know him so well, but I know his foxes and fractals; I never talked so much to him and I always "saw" him as a nice, maybe shy like his foxes... ...I didn't know he was maybe ill and I'll miss him... :( :blackrose: :heart:
Thank you Jim for tell us about... :(
