Interests
Ok.. I don't write blogs often and I've been trying to write this blog for awhile now and I won't rest til I unload a few random thoughts... So without delay I want to share my theories about the relationship between life and symmetry. When I was younger my grandpa would always tell me "Everything in moderation." At the time I didn't quite understand exactly what he meant but now I think that I have a good understanding were he was coming from. To my knowledge everything in life has some form of counter balance... such as life and death, good and evil, light v.s. dark, love and hate, past and future, beginning and end... etc...I find it ironic how our senses are naturally more drawn to things which are symmetrical such as designs and logos on products and such... But I think the reasons why things which are symmetrical tend to appeal to our senses is because things which are symmetric are the closest examples of perfection. Throughout life people strive for this idea of perfection which has been defined as stability. Stability can be defined as many things but the final results would be shaped by a person's needs and personal preference. Living a life of stability leaves you with this essence of satisfaction. This feeling of satisfaction can leave an impression that this is the way God intended life to be on earth as it is in Heaven. Even God is symmetrical.. He is the Alpha and the Omega, The beginning and the end, the everlasting God. God limits can not be defined by words other then awesome because he is limitless.. similar to the idea of symmetry. If you think about math for a moment any number can either be divided and or multiplied over and over again... There is really no limit to define symmetry other then what your brain is capable of computing.. So imagine what could be discovered if there was no such thing as limits on our abilities? That's the biggest difference between a mortal human and God himself... I also believe that some of the reasons why this world is in such chaos is because it has lost it's essence of balance. Here are just a few of the prime examples which a lot of us could relate to in order to prove this theory...The war in Iraq, decline of natural resources, depletion of natural energy,the steadily declining economy and the increase of poverty worldwide.... The only way which these things can be undone and the essence of symmetry can be reestablished we as a people must make changes and learn that self sufficiency isn't always about self but also the well being of others which surround and influence us. Since I've been coming up with these theories I've been trying to find anyway to disprove it an I did come up with this question today..."what is the counter balance of "age" not age as a period of time but a chronicle age?" I was thinking either immortality or living a life with out progression... such as people who don't utilize there time as they should or someone who dwells in nothing but the past (uhhh cough...a clock with no hands).. Yet the body dies the mind and spirit never grows.. What do you think?...Anyway with that in mind I want to add more but that's enough for now..... Just random thoughts to stimulate your mind

Sorry if i bother you in any way, but i just wanted to ask if i could have a version of this background without watermark or trademarks. [link]
(The Tempest Magician mat)
I saw your work and was amazed, but then i was sad to read you didn't make any mats anymore.
So i wanted to ask you this.
I would be really grateful if you send it to me.
Your art is really nice!

I looked through your custom Yugioh mats and noticed there's no Red Eyes Black Dragon (original, no metal or darkness), would you possibly be making one anytime soon?
