This is the time and place, the precipice of our existence, the beginning of the end and dawn of a new age. No walls surrounding our thoughts are bound; barriers built creating impossibilities, or chains binding the unimaginable.

We have arrived in the revelation of our purpose, the point of all creation and the beginning of what was to be and shall be known.

It is time to believe in the faith nurtured in love, blessed by omnipotence, graced through forgiveness, which lead you to a predestined existence; counsel and tangible conclusion in the simplicity of sophomoric comprehension.

Now is the place, and you question understanding as though you might truly recognize what it is you are being told?

When was the last memory of a cubby where you settled into thought, allowed your goodness to be a guide and truly opened your heart to moving further than the needs of self?

What day did you arrive open and willing to give yourself freely to all in need embracing this world as a gift and not one of ownership?

Your mother nor father, sister or brothers were the reason for your creation and nothing that can be defined by man the purpose of your existence.

Life is far more complicated than a single mission, much deeper than one purpose or cause in a transformation.

Like the tumblers in a lock, each click is changing something somewhere beyond your control and past your actions or movement.

Like domino’s, one cascading upon another creating a chain reaction, life is far deeper than just you, or those people you meet daily.

Life is like oil and water which never mixes but pushes itself atop a position and then undermines the only other entity in its space never mixing but always breaking apart the unity of its parasitic partner in existence.

One from north to the south, another from east to the west and in times of convergence causing small portions of its origination to split from the established underpinning and move into an unknown place of origin spilling new elements into something that once virgin, now changes because of interruption or interpretation creating a design and identity never having been seen.

Johnny Johnstonhttp://www.blufengr-art.com/
An artist/writer as well as graduate of the University of South Carolina with degrees in journalism/20th Century American Literature, and retired senior executive of several international hotel/resort corporations, Johnny is the product of the south having been raised in the ever-changing transient lifestyle of a Carolina coastal resort. A point where he discovered, within his 300-year-old heritage and the world's dramatic social/cultural shifts during the late '60s to early 80’s an ambitious hunger and overwhelming curiosity to touch, see and become a participant in the virtually unlimited possibilities offered to those who wish for and seek life experiences. A journey which when hearing its details initially makes one a bit skeptical, questioning its validity as it is hard to imagine that incidents such as these may have crossed one man’s lifetime. This is the fodder required to step into zones exposing one's personal inner self, which many of his paintings and the words he writes do, openly. An ability to see and hear the tragic, beautiful, accomplished, exciting journey in a life free of inhibitions allowing others the opportunity to live vicariously and become, through his works, a part of its future. His larger works which have been featured in several Colorado and Fredericksburg Texas galleries and resorts have produced a number of collectors and fans. However, over the years, his paintings are mostly viewed by friends, enthusiastic new artist encountered on the streets or a small number of acquaintances he meets when dining in local cafés with his wife.


  1. Love your line “…in times of convergence causing small portions of its origination to split from the established underpinning and move into an unknown place of origin spilling new elements …” Changes never before seen, being open to creative flow, makes life all the more joyful.

  2. I love this Johnny. I often wonder if people realize that just in one day your journey causes ripples or as you day a domino effect. We can not walk through life without causing many reactions to that walk.
