Architects of a New Dawn

We’d like to show the side of the world you don’t normally see on television.


Members' gallery

After another round of "trawling" to find artwork posted on members pages, it occurred to me that a single location to post work would save a lot of that and would draw visits to artist's pages and websites. So please make your work easier to find...

Welcome to your gallery

To post your images, please click the [Start Discussion] link below and put your name in the title field.

Then click the camera icon in the main field to locate images either from your computer or from your albums. Post as many images as you wish but remember that you only need a couple of samples if you already have your work on your page. Once visitors know you, they can find your page to see more.

OK. Now I just hope somebody besides me will join (is it me or is there an echo in here?)

Music is looked upon as something serious and holy, designed to purify the feelings of the people. The enthusiasm of the heart expresses itself involuntarily in a burst of song or the rhythmic movement of the body. From immemorial times the inspiring affects that moves all hearts, and draws them together, has mystified mankind.
The ancient kings made music in order to honor merit, and offered it with splendor to the Supreme Deity inviting their ancestors to be present. In the Temple folks drew near to God with music and pantomimes. The Ancestors were invited to these divine rituals as guests of the ruler of heaven and as representatives of humanity in the higher regions. This uniting of the human past with the Divinity in revering his ancestors with solemn moments of spiritual inspiration established the bond between God and man. Our first Earthdance and Theater.

From quiet homes and first beginning,
Out to the undiscovered ends,
There's nothing worth the wear of winning,
But laughter and the love of friends.
— Hilaire Belloc

Today a man discovered gold and fame,
Another flew the stormy seas;
One found the germ of a disease.
But what high fates my path attend:
For I — today I found a friend.
— Helen Barker Parker

Scatter seeds of kindness everywhere you go;
Scatter bits of courtesy — watch them grow and grow.
Gather buds of friendship;
Keep them till full-blown;
You will find more happiness than you have ever known.
— Amy R. Raabe

Too many groups to join... but the fish pics were irresistible.

Xtar, I am a terrible language partner and I started the group so you have nothing to apologise for. Good to see you here. We look forward to seeing your painting.

Be A Friend
Edgar A. Guest

Be a friend. You don't need money;
Just a disposition sunny;
Just the wish to help another
Get along some way or other;
Just a kindly hand extended
Out to one who's unbefriended;
Just the will to give or lend,
This will make you someone's friend.

Be a friend. You don't need glory.
Friendship is a simple story.
Pass by trifling errors blindly,
Gaze on honest effort kindly,
Cheer the youth who's bravely trying,
Pity him who's sadly sighing;
Just a little labor spend
On the duties of a friend.

Be a friend. The pay is bigger
(Though not written by a figure)
Than is earned by people clever
In what's merely self-endeavor.
You'll have friends instead of neighbors
For the profits of your labors;
You'll be richer in the end
Than a prince, if you're a friend.
