TWISTED SUFFOCATION

TWISTED SUFFOCATION — Rorschach Art Photography, by Nawfal Johnson

THE INFLUENCE FOR THIS WORK:

“UNSEEN” ~ By THE GHOST INSIDE.

Here are the first two verses of this song: These words hit me kind of hard, as I recently lost someone close to me.

“Unseen”: ~”One foot in the grave and one hand in the sky
Heaven comes with a price
If all I know is Hell
How will I ever find paradise?
Rabid are the wolves within
That hunt with a vengeful sickness
When the innocent lose their innocence
How can they find forgiveness? ~ It took everything
To find a shred of hope in only shadows of me
So am I guilty for trying to put my mind at ease?
This pain is unseen.” ~

MIRRORED ABSTRACT PHOTOGRAPHY” (aka “RORSCHACH ABSTRACT PHOTOGRAPHY”) Series Years: 2007 to Present (On-Going). These pieces are colour and Black & White, abstract images that are designed with a mirrored effect, also known as Rorschach Art. Sometimes the mirrored image is an exact opposite-duplicate for both sides. However, in some cases, one half is ALMOST a mirrored duplicate, but with a few compositional differences. Some pieces are urban, others rural…some have a mechanical or structural-chaotic focus. At times, the formations you can see in the artworks may appear ominous, even scary, or evil. Nevertheless, the viewer of my portfolio can decide for themselves what they see in these MIRRORED ABSTRACT PHOTOGRAPHY images.

Note 1: After doing the first art photo, I said to myself, “I’m seeing some faces from Brust’s novel in this image, and I need to investigate, and work this out further to see what develops.”

Note 2: One very interesting aspect of Brust’s story is that all of the angels were essentially good until a conflict and deception arose among the angels. On top of that, the three “evil” angels in the story ( evil according to many ‘modernised’ views…modern being several thousand years for Satan/Lucifer/Devil, and hundreds for Mephisto ) — Satan and Lucifer are the same entity, and Mephistopheles is the name invented for the historical Johann Georg Faust (c. 1480–c. 1540), and in demonology, Mephistopheles was “one of the seven chief devils and the tempter of Faust”. Nevertheless, in Brust’s story, Satan and Lucifer are “First-Borns”, and Mephistopheles is an archangel, not of the devils or demons, but he is Fallen.

Note 3: My Brust angels are a contradiction because they are made of fire. Angels, “fallen” or not, made of fire, I think is a contradiction.

Note 4: Sammael is a fallen archangel, and the Lord of Destruction. Some think this was Lucifer’s original name. The Jews think he is the archangel of the AMALEKITES (Gentiles) — Fine. Bring IT!

MENTAL NOTE #127, TODAY I GOT AN EXCELLENT SUNTAN !

MENTAL NOTE #127: TODAY I GOT AN EXCELLENT SUNTAN! THE TRIALS AND TRIBULATIONS OF LIVING IN THE TROPICAL ZONE.

Don’t get me wrong, it’s not all Tea and Strippers in the Tropics. You have VERY HOT & HUMID weather most of the year; and then, you have about three months of cloudy and rainy Monsoon Season Storms.

But I do feel a bit sorry for all my fellow Nebraskans who got about 17 or 18 inches of snow the other day — It’s gotta suck to be there right now.

SERIES: NINE RED SCABBARDS ( 赤鞘九人男 ). Romanized: Akazaya Kunin Otoko, or, simply, “Akazaya Nine”.
YEAR: 2020 – 2021 (Completed).

—————
DESCRIPTION:

The “Nine Red Scabbards” Abstract Light Streaks Photography Series, is, of course, a nine piece series depicting the Samurai and Ninja Retainers of Kozuki Oden, of the country of Wano, in the One Piece (Manga / Anime) World.
“Kozuki Oden was the daimyo of Kuri in Wano Country and the son of the former shogun Kozuki Sukiyaki, being a member of the Kozuki Family. He was the husband of Kozuki Toki and the father of Momonosuke and Hiyori. Additionally, he was the leader of a group of legendary and powerful samurai known as the Nine Red Scabbards, with all of them serving as his retainers and most trusted allies.”
Oden was also formerly the 2nd Division Commander of the White Beard Pirates.
When Oden returned to Wano, he was captured, and executed by his nemesis, Lord Orochi, and the Yonko, Kaido.
There was one traitor (double-agent) among the original Nine Red Scabbards, Kanjuro, [who] “later confronted his former comrades with an army at Onigashima’s back entrance. After mocking them and explaining Momonosuke’s escape attempt and how his execution was taking place, Kanjuro clashed with Kikunojo. He was then defeated [by Kikunojo] and left bleeding on the ground, and Kin’emon solemnly dropped his hat upon him in passing.”

Therefore, the traitor, Kanjuro, is not in this series—No Traitors Allowed! In his place is an honorary Scabbard, Izo.

MENTAL NOTE #125, FREEDOM

MENTAL NOTE #125: FREEDOM — “Every thought should be uttered freely, fearlessly…”

I have been very troubled with the current and horrendous change in my country’s political environment, where a complete silence of Free Speech is in the process — that is — Free Speech will be silenced for ALL PEOPLE who oppose tyranny, and oppose the destruction of their country, to a new leader who loves his ‘Great New Reset’. T r u m p did nothing to stop this from happening; but under a Beiijing-Biiden admin, it is going to be worse, and you will see that unfold for yourself, very, very, soon.

Once again, I must turn our attention to the Sage, and the Great Master Painter, Robert Henri:

“It is better that every thought should be uttered freely, fearlessly, than that any great thought should be denied utterance for fear of evil. It is only through complete independence that all goodness can be spoken, that all purity can be found. Even indecency is bred of restriction not of freedom, for how can the spirit which controls the ethical side of life be trusted except through the poise that is gained by exercise? When we think honestly, we never desire individuals bound hand and foot, and the ethical side of man’s nature we cannot picture as overwhelmed and smothered with regulations if we are to have a permanent human goodness; for restrictions hide vice, and freedom alone bears morality.”

Henri, R., & Ryerson, M. (1958). The art spirit, by Robert Henri: notes, articles, fragments of letters and talks to students, bearing on the concept and technique of picture making, the study of art generally, and on appreciation, compiled by Margery Ryerson. J.B. Lippincott.

MENTAL NOTE #124, THE FEAR OF DEATH

MENTAL NOTE #124: THE FEAR OF DEATH I SEE IN MY CATS’ EYES WHEN THEY REALIZE THEY ARE GOING TO DIE, NEVER FAILS TO BREAK MY HEART.

Many of you, my long-time readers, know that my wife and I, rescue endangered mother and baby cats off the streets. We also rescue injured male cats, and get them healthy…and happy, we hope.

For some, through illness, age, or injury, they unfortunately die. There is NOTHING that we, or any veterinarian can do to save them. For these cats, it is just a matter of time.

I have experienced the process of death with probably dozens of cats, who we have rescued, but due to injury, age, or critical illness, nothing can be done for them….It is a matter of time, and much suffering is endured as the death process takes control.

The most terrifying thing for our cats who are dying, is when they finally realize they are going to die.

There is a tremendous terror I see in their eyes as their brightness, turns to fear and despair. They can do nothing, as they struggle for that next breath. There is nothing I can do, except be there with them, as they breath that last painful intake of oxygen. All I can do is to attempt to let them know they are not alone.

I can only imagine how terrified they must feel, but cannot do anything to stop death, to cheat death is impossible.

Nevertheless, each time I go through a cat’s struggles with death, it is just as painful for me each time, and more so, with cats I have known for many years.

I have a cat, Batman, she seems to be dying … I’ve seen the signs, I see the death-terror now in her eyes.

We can give medications, and we have, and hope she recovers, but it may be too late already.

I never quite get used to this death struggle, and maybe you are not supposed to. Maybe this cycle of experiencing death, is preparing me for that terror I will probably feel, when I realize I’m going to die. I wonder, how can anyone really be prepared for their own death: I don’t think so.

All I know is that it breaks my heart to stare into the eyes of my cats, when they understand they will no longer exist soon.

MENTAL NOTE #122, HOW SAFE DO YOU THINK YOUR BLOG IS ON WORDPRESS, FROM FASCIST CENSORSHIP OR COMPLETE CANCELLATION? Please Answer my Blog Poll, and Let Your Readers know about my Poll, I think We ALL need to Be Somewhat Concerned About Our 1st Amendment Rights at this Point in History (or Whatever Guarantees You may have for Free Speech in Your Country)

I’ve Never embedded a Poll before or used CrowdSignal, so, I hope this Works.

MENTAL NOTE #117, SIMPLE TASKS THAT CONFIRM, AND REMIND YOU, THAT YOU OWN ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS (A.S. or AS or Literally a ‘PAIN IN THE AS(S)’!

MENTAL NOTE #117: Yes — There are some simple tasks that EVERYONE, ALMOST, can do without even thinking about them; tasks you can do without working up a massive sweat, without experiencing massive pain, and without feeling massive discomfort and annoyance.

What am I talking about?

I’m talking about ‘Owning‘ the horrible arthritic disease, ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS, like I DO! I’ve had this damned painful disease for at least 39 Years! Imagine EVERYDAY PAIN! Yeah, that is what Ownership of Ankylosing Spondylitis is all about.

“Everything you do as an AS’er is typically affected by AS.”

ME, I said that!

I was painfully and annoyingly reminded of this fact today, as I struggled for at least FIVE MINUTES to get my socks on! Yes, SOCKS! The BANE of AS’ers WORLDWIDE! IF you own AS, you should know what I mean, right!

Because the AS’er’s spine is stiff and painful, most of the time; or, like me, having suffered a fractured spine (in two places), DUE TO COMPLICATIONS WITH AS + A TRAUMA, causing a need to go through a HORRENDOUS 10-hours long Spinal Fusion Surgery to keep my spinal cord from being ripped apart as my lumbar spine moved in two different directions, eventually making it so I could no longer walk — MY POINT IS THAT EVEN LESS THAN CRITICAL ACCIDENTS TO MOST PEOPLE, CAN CAUSE DISASTROUS INJURIES FOR AS’ERS.

Yeah, so, that’s only one FUN example of what some of us AS’ers have experienced in THEIR (OUR) OWNERSHIP of AS.

Therefore, the simple act of bending over to put one’s own socks on to dress, is an EXHAUSTING EXPERIENCE to say the least.

Sometimes, after I get my socks on, I feel so drained, I say to myself, “‘Fuuck’it!’ I’m too exhausted to go anywhere.” Nevertheless, it was such an effort to just get my socks on (properly no less, LOL), that it would be a waste NOT to go out. “I’ll teach them ‘Fuuck’en’ socks who they are dealing with!”

ME, I SAID THAT!

Anyway, EVIL SOCKS, the Bane of AS’ers throughout the Galaxy and BEYOND!

I was just thinking about the mysteries of the galaxy today, and the Struggles of Daily Life that many (if not all) AS’ers face. Simple tasks like putting on socks, are indeed, a ‘Pain in the AS(S)’, for AS’ers!
