THE WORLD OF GLIMPSE will never stop growing. I am grateful for that. Art, literature, theater and music springs out of it. I love its possibilities and have come to realize that I, too, am a Glimpsible – a Glimpsarian thinker – a Possibilitiest: there are few limiting absolutes – just many, many, wonderful possibilities.
This world that I have created, is, for me, a state of being in which I feel right at home because Glimpsible philosophy resonates with me. A glimpse of possibility, which often enters our minds unbidden, needs to be respected and not disregarded. It might, after all, contain the potential to become something exciting and unexpected. I feel it is important not to limit what has come to us spontaneously, by quickly placing it in a convenient category. I did not limit THE WORLD OF GLIMPSE to any slot because I feel categories straight-jacket thinking and creativity. THE WORLD OF GLIMPSE is literature, art, theater and philosophy. It is for all ages. That is why I have given this work a very large category: “ages 4 to 104 and more”.
So, whatever your age, just remember…
a glimpse –
into a world
from a new dimension.
You’ll hear some cosmic verse…
Songs and sounds of the Universe.
– Ellen Palestrant
You have made me more aware of the rich fertility in the fleeting glimpse. A glimpse when given a moment of attention can lead to a large range of possibilities. Thank you for this gift. Dede
I fully agree, Dede, with your comments about a glimpse. That’s why I refer to myself as a POSSIBILITIEST and a GLIMPSARIAN thinker.
That wonderful new word and all those other words. You are an inspiration to me and I am so in love with your paintings. I cannot wait to put up the one I just bought.
Thank you, April. Which painting did you buy? Hope you enjoy it.
Blossoms Of Perfection. It was so hard to choose as there were so many I loved. Each of your paintings tell a story. I see things your paintings you are a glimpsarian thinker for sure! It would be fun to hear the different stories from all the people who look at each painting and what it says to them.
Good choice! Thank you and what a great idea to hear the different interpretations and stories sparked by the paintings!
It would be interesting to hear what you were thinking when you created your paintings. I’ll bet you have some fascinating stories you could tell.
Dianne, I’m really feeling and experiencing the moment when I paint.
You are amazing! I could go and and on! When I look at your creativity, I see so much life in your color, it reaches my soul!
Thank you, Laraine. I love brilliant color and that is one of the reasons why in “THE WORLD OF GLIMPSE” I have created a color world.
Ellen, I think you are ahead of the pack in realizing that we shouldn’t interrupt our creativity by quickly choosing a category for what we produce. That’s a bit like buying clothes according to which drawer at home still has space. Fortunately, we are in a very exciting time. The old categories are less clear thanks to computers, the internet, and all our new paths for delivery. Songs became visual thanks to MTV. Your work does not fit neatly into just the painting box, just the performance box, or into the music box (wasn’t that a tiny contraption we used to wind up?) Now that we are no longer totally dependent on the book publisher, the radio station, or the booking agent, we are more open to creating what demands to be created. We’ll take it wherever it is welcome. By the way, looking again at your book, “have you ever had a hunch”, gave me interesting insight into The World of Glimpse. I get something new every time I “glimpse.”
Seriously, Ellen Your SO-SO Creative.******
Your the ACT of CREATING.
WE feel PEACEFUL, HAPPIER, enjoying
your ART. THANKS, for SHARING with
ALL of US.
