Art Journal Caravan 2012 - Page 28

I was reading on FB this morning about a lion that was part of a conservation project, and which had been shot by so-called 'legal' hunters. They were pictured standing triumphant over 'their kill'. Yet the tracking device it wore showed that it had been shot whilst in a cave at 4am...probably whilst asleep. The depths that humanity can sink to, what with all the abuse of domestic animals I've been hearing about as part of campaigns on FB as well, is truly sickening. Then hearing on the news about the Bangladeshi PM stating publicly that refugees from a neighbouring country who have crossed into Bangladesh are 'not her problem', and how she has stopped Aid Agencies from helping those's inhumanity to man as well as animals...sometimes it just makes me want to despair. Then I found this quote and it seemed to say what I have to believe is true! So! that is where this piece came from , LOL! The earth with all its 'plots of hell and commotions', a phoenix rising from the fire to show that good can triumph over evil as long as people care, and the big 'safety net' behind - God, keeping us ultimately safe, holding us up in spite of everything.

I've just got CS6 and am still learning a lot, but so enjoying the challenge :)
