What does it mean to be a Genius?

To believe your own thought, to believe that what is true for you in your private heart is true for all men, — that is genius. Ralph Waldo Emerson

In today’s society full of noisy distractions, how does one find their true genius?   What prevents a person from embracing the wisdom of ancient great civilizations?

In this painting “Civilizations” the artist Eriberto Oriol seems to be embracing and celebrating the symbols of ancient civilizations that have influenced him and his art.

He seems to be projecting his influences through shape, form, color, bold lines and texture.

 His work bares influences of his father’s appreciation for the natural environment, Mesoamerica roots, love for African art and the Japanese influence that came from working as a young man with gardeners and landscapers.

It’s hard for Eriberto to try to give meaning or interpretation to his work, as he just seems to be a vessel for these inspirations. He believes that art retains a primal spirit, which allows him to go beyond himself.

He hopes that his work will help others to detect their own gleam of light? Imagine the Un-imaginable and to encourage them to see the contributions and achievements of other great civilizations.

Conversation on California Environmental whackos

What? No paper bags either??

Comment to a Mango’s Azul posting:  What? No Plastic Bags ???

A comment was made …..

“ah yes… California Environmental whackos, no more plastic bags , ha ha ,ha Supermarkets in california have banned plastic bags especially in San Francisco, forcing people to BUY paper bags at 10 cents each. . Just cut more trees down.. bravo whackos from the land of fruits and nuts. A California Artist, landscape painting included in book Planet Earth, Planet Art, by Mirca, UK. Associated with 2,000,000 members Earth First environmental group international”

Our first reaction to above:  You called us what?? Just because we care about the  environment ?? Is it preferable for people to have their heads in the ground and just continue to say it is not happening? There is nothing we can do…

When we first got this comment, it was sad.  Afters,  we thought lets put it out there and show the mindset some people have.
