Surrealist Maxims

Have proof by not telling secrets.

When somebody is too silly, create adversity.

Resistance is found when somebody finally sees the light.

Be unperturbed during a crisis.

Children have deep feelings about greediness.

You'll find some understanding by challenging deceptions.

Enjoy disruptive activities even if you run the risk of being seen.

Run like hell in your living space.

Dare yourself to be a vengeful person.

Be realistic about having to save someone.

Find hidden value in your spare time.

Spill the beans with an inept pal.

Manly men admire relative strangers.

Be there for a furious fanatic.

A recurring dream is awakened from slumber.

Youthful people find ways to get into the mood.

Recluses last longer.

Blessed St. Xenia of Petersburg Cathedral

I snapped these pictures yesterday of Blessed St. Xenia of Petersburg Cathedral (Russian Orthodox Church Abroad) in Kanata, Ontario while waiting for the bus. This is definitely an old-school Russian church, as it has no pews in the sanctuary (though there are benches along the back wall for those who need to sit), and services are mostly in Russian.

Construction began in 1996, with the inaugural service being held in February 1997.

Denial

I recently posted an art video on YouTube entitled Denial, which is a visual meditation on the Armenian Genocide in particular, as well as religious persecution and unacknowledged genocides in general.




All work on this video was done in OpenBSD 6.0 using Blender, GIMP and Audacity.
