I am taking part in a Seven Deadly Sins challenge, at, well, you might have guessed, DeviantScrap I seem to be hanging out there A LOT lately!!! And even if I weren't on several of the creative teams, I suspect I'd be there shopping. There are new releases arriving at a frantic pace and I'm impressed at the growing selection of non-scrapbook related images. This site could easily replace a Yahoo group as the forum is growing into a great spot for challenges. The gallery is becoming spotted with more and more altered art pieces. So.... There's this weeks plug for Deviant!
Back to my topic. I confess I knew the Seven Deadly Sins were of a biblical origin, but that was the extent of it. I would have been able to list Avarice Greed and Lust, so I had to do 'the google'.
At a conscious level, I was not aware of any recent thoughts about the subject of lust persay...unless they pertained to wanting to acquire art supplies! All kidding aside, I've always been a very loyal person and to me, lust conjures up infidelity. It came as no surprise, that when I began to consider THAT, a plethora of painful emotions leaped to the surface, as I have certainly had my share of heartbreak from finding out the subject of my love was less than true to me several times. The silver lining - I value loyalty, fidelity and trust more than most now. Such sorrow betrayal evokes. Time has healed. I've had many years to recover. ....Tho' this piece reflects that deep part in my heart that remains.
Most often, I don't have the desire to continually focus on revisiting deeply disturbing ideas or memories, but when they surface, it is much like setting my soul on fire. Maybe it's a form of self protection that I do my best to keep it light. Thoughts?
