What Remains

There are times where days saunter along, one into the other, with few distinguishing characteristics and where inspirational interactions with the world are either muted or altogether absent. But then comes along a work of art, a photograph, a film, a poem that strikes you dead in your tracks and summons your mind, heart and attention to its power. For me, this is what life is about, the continuity of learning, where if one chooses to open themselves up to new experiences and previously unknown data, one will always find a kind of psychic renewal in such discoveries.

I was unaware of the work of photographer Sally Mann up until several days ago but on a whim, I checked out a documentary film about her life, family and work from the library. Mann’s photography has been largely hailed by art critics as some of the best photography in the nation. Time Magazine dubbed her “America’s Best Photographer in 2001.” What the documentary does so well is bring her family life into the frame so that we have a broader, more nuanced understanding of her creative influences, philosophical concerns and goals as an artist. Mann’s photography centers on both universal themes (life, mortality, family, love, hope) as well as regional specificities (Southern motifs, landscapes e.g.). Her work has been described as moody, ethereal, haunting, preternatural, and dream-like.

Once again, sometimes the rewards of learning derive rather simply by taking a chance, picking up a book or film that you know nothing about and finding along the way that life continues to surprise and inspire. This to me is what libraries are all about.

This is an excellent documentary - Mann is a photographer with no fear. Viewers need to maintain a certain fearlessness as well!
Psychic reading is not a new concept and is not strange in this planet. However, online psychic chat is an all new concept.

The true fact is that online psychic reading is more than just possible. This combined art of technology and spiritual belief has gained huge popularity around the Globe through the recent years. Many people have started believing in the truth called the online psychic chat. For the other who still think that the online psychic reading is not possible, they are missing a great part of convenience and the most updated technology of the modern world. Remember the fact that millions of people have experienced the accuracy of the online psychic readings. All these millions of people out there cannot be wrong” says Mr. Robert of mypsychicadvice.com. Speaking about the principle behind the online psychic chat, Mr. Robert said, “Actually we are not supposed to reveal the secrets behind the working principle of the online psychic chat. Live online psychics involve the art of palm reading, astrology, tarot card; love spells and love psychics mainly. The psychic masters know the views of clients in live online services. They get indulged in the process of space and time meanwhile. The spirits attempt on the psychic readers. What would most likely be required for you to have for a psychic chat is a web cam. Unless you don’t want the psychic to be able to see you during your online psychic reading. Basically what takes place during a psychic chat is that a window opens that connects you to your psychic. Once connected you will be able to view each other and chat with each other through this window.” Speaking on the move, Mr. Robert said, “This technology combined with spirituality is promising a better tomorrow for many people out there. It is upto the people to appreciate this ultimate method of psychic reading and enjoy the great benefits and convenience it can offer.
