The stained glass Rose Windows were built between 1250 and They still have the original glass.
The cathedral was built on a small island called the Île de la Cité, in the middle of the Seine.
Construction began in 1163, during the reign of King Louis VII, and was completed in 1345.

In Greek Mythology a phoenix ( φοῖνιξ, phoînix) is a long-lived bird that cyclically regenerates or is otherwise born again.
Associated with the Sun, a phoenix obtains new life by arising from the ashes of its predecessor.

The breath of life
My Art is my life
The air I breathe
is a living breathing colour vibrations
Of all that I am
I am at one with one
One with all for
Antosa 5th April 2015
Poster produced to raise awareness of the destruction of the Amazon rainforest for the US-based charity Rainforest Action Network (RAN).
Spiro: the root for both breath and spirit – to inspire – fill the body with breath, and the spirit with awareness.
The first and last thing you do in physical form is breathe.
We are to Treasure Trees as we would our life!
For they are our Life!
Purifying the air we breathe,
Trees are Pure Inspiration in every way!
I have been ‘Inspired’ by nature when family came to live nearby and so started my weekly hike into Mother Natures great out doors, boldly going where I had not trod before and this fresh blast of pure ‘Inspiration’ (fresh Air in the big outdoors) has led to absolute Artistic Inspiration
My latest 21st Century Biogeometric Art work is on the theme of Sacred Trees Revered throughout the ages by all civilizations
I do :)! and be 'Inspired'

The Art of Nothingness
Sinking into the glorious Arms of Nothingness
the silent meditative moment of living in the Now
Sink into the glorious Arms of Nothingness
It is Here in the arms of nothingness lies magic and mystery the foundation of everything-ness
We can all be our own Creators in the
Art of Nothingness
As we let go and sink into the glorious Arms of Nothingness one realises that there really is nothing to it.
Ps: Please enjoy! Part one of the film Inner Worlds, Outer Worlds.

Empires have risen and fallen
And All for Love
Lord Nelson’s last letter to Lady Hamilton 19th Oct 1805. Found on his desk in his cabin on H.M.S. Victory after his death at the Battle of Trafalgar.”
My Dearest beloved Emma the dear friend of my bosom the signal has been made that the Enemys combined fleet are coming out of Port. We have very little Wind so that I have no hopes of seeing them before tomorrow. May the God of Battles crown my Endeavours with success at all events I will take care that my name shall ever be most dear to you and Horatia both of whom I love as much as my own life, and as my last writing before the battle will be to you so I hope in God that I shall live to finish my letter after the [Battle].”
One must always remember the special people who have shaped our lives
and who we have loved!
This song I once sent to
a very special Gentleman I was honoured to have known!
He was my very own Lord Byron of East Africa!
With his tantalizing blue eyes
That hypnotized one into the depth of his soul
Like an Ocean begging you to enter
Synchronized to become
Dedicated to my Lord Byron of East Africa!

“Mighty oaks from little acorns grow”
Geoffrey Chaucer’s Troilus and Criseyde, 1374.
Creativity first stars with a seed of thought which can lay dormant or with the right conditions germinate and grow.
(Left: Oak tree seedling)
And over the years I have let it bloom occasionally for family & friends only and written about my Love Treats and Edible Art in my blogs
Then out of of the darkness always comes forth the spark of light which ignites the seed within to create
