Transcendent Sci-Fi Art

I rest on Sundays, allowing myself to do whatever I most want to do or whatever catches my fancy. I do not plan my course through the day, nor through my life. I do not worry. I simply am in the day. And I am grateful, I actively experience gratitude toward my creator.


When I was middle-aged I finally realized that I lacked gratitude. For a moment I felt that this was justified, just by looking about in the world and at my own circumstances. But I was intrigued when I read Marcus Tullius Cicero, a highly influential Roman statesman, lawyer, scholar, and philosopher, who lived 106-43 BCE, who said amongst innumerable other profundities, “Gratitude is the greatest of virtues, and the parent of all the others.” It took me years. a humbling long time, but I finally developed gratitude, and ever since I have expressed gratitude throughout each of my days in prayer and in attitude. Amen.


A random, anonymous internet source describes gratitude well:

"Gratitude is the virtue of rejoicing in what is. It is expressing the feeling of joy we get from all that brings us joy. It is the opposite of regret, which is a feeling of sadness for what is, and of nostalgia, which aches for a past which is now gone. Gratitude is an effective antidote to many destructive emotions.

On this Sunday I rested with gratitude, creating these artworks in one of my favorite genres, science fiction.
