1. Everybody has a personal space, right? You know, this invisible bubble; if someone invades into it we feel uncomfortable. This thing freaked me out when I just started to do Kenpo. When a person is doing a martial art their bubble became smaller and smaller because of working in a close contact with others. Wrestlers don't have a bubble at all.
Now, Capoeira do respect the bubble. It often feels like it was invented to protect one's personal space... And this absence of a contact freaks me out now:)

2. Sasha already got his Halloween costume. And black candles are finally not a problem to get anymore <):)

3. Oni had eaten my brain... The Oni.

4. Dunno how it happened, but I became a member of about 20 different communities in dA. Most of them have to do with Japan. My "favorites" folder is flooded with digital pictures of the Japanese folklore creatures and photos of Shinto shrines. Don't go there, if you don't want to have your brain eaten by an Oni (or a Tengu:)

5. I had a dream last night:
In the dream I, a man (sorta good-hearted outlaw type; tall, rather cool-looking, he had something "piraty" in his appearance), and a totally unremarkable woman in a beige blouse were standing in the middle of the dark, deep forest at the bank of the black lake, inhabited by Kelpies. The Kelpies were not showing much of themselves, but their heads, arising at the surface now and then looked exactly like on [livejournal.com profile] scowling_hermit's artworks, but slimy. The creatures were very real, seriously creepy, and threatening. We were trying to figure out how to get out of there, the man was showing some interest to me, and appeared to be sorta annoyed by the woman, who was clueless about the situation.
At some point both me and the man understood, that we'll be attacked in seconds. We started to run away. Kelpies started after us, but the woods were to dense for such big creatures, so I thought we have a chance. But the man was trying to save this colorless woman, helping her to run, dragging her by the hand after him, helping her up when she was falling down. I was running by myself, jumping through, and diving under the fallen trees and stuff; faster then they, but the man was strong, and kept the pace. I was incredibly pissed off that he was helping her, not me. I cried: "What the hell are you doing? Leave her, help me, and we'll make it!" He shouted back: "No! You can do it by yourself, she can't!" That felt even worst, because now I was not only pissed off, but also angry at myself for caring for this stupid guy on the first place. Since I was forward of them a bit, I started to run faster, and then kicked a couple of the dead pine trees that were standing there. The trees went down, blocking the way with all those branches to the guy and the woman. I knew that it's most likely the end to them both, but I'll win some time while the Kelpies will be finishing them. It felt good.
I don't remember the end of the dream clearly, but I know that I made it out of the woods safe.

That dream tells a lot about me, huh? ;)

Yes! Our favorite holiday! :)

The dream was rather scary, and emotional ... guess it doesn't show me from the best side, too... But at lest there were KELPIES! :))

Oh, I think it was pretty clever to save yourself in the dream, especially if that guy was going to waste his time with someone who didn't even know what was happening!

Well, I also think that it makes more sense to save your own neck in a desperate situation, especially if there's no chance to save anyone else. Still, in the real life situation I think I'd help the others, at least try to..... Yet another annoying side-effect of the "proper upbringing" :)

Heh, yeah...but I was also raised with the saying "God helps those who help themselves." ;)

What an interesting dream. I've often wondered, in horror movies, why more people don't do that. It seems like the best way to survive, really, so clearly you and I have the same theories on survival ~_^

I have such huge personal space issues, it's weird.

The funny thing is that in the real life situation I think I'd most likely try to help the others.... Obviously, my subconsciousness is wiser than I am! :D

1. Hee hee I think my personal space bubble is about 12 ft in every direction. Though, at times, I would like it to be smaller.

2. Yay. I miss Halloween.

3. :D Oni are the type to do that! But it is a good thing for us art hungry people.

4. I want to go there, but I never get on dA anymore.

5. It says a lot. I liked the dream imagery!

I used to have a big personal space bubble. I still hold the barrier energetically in the big cities, say in the public transportation during the rush hour and such... It's kinda impressive to watch how people are trying to stay away from me, actually. I grew up in those conditions, you know; I think many big city dwellers have this skill, and it doesn't really matter if they are playing with the energies or not.
But now I don't feel much of this bubble in the every day life. It's like growing self-confidence, or something.... I know that I can defend (physically) practically every invader, and I guess everyone feels it too. I don't mind a mosh pit...:)

Hopefully now, after two pics in the row this Oni guy wil leave me alone for a while - I have some other pictures to finish!:)

Oh, I am rather active in dA lately. All those communities are great to meet people with the same taste/interests/obsessions... I like it.

Yeah, deep inside I am a selfish bitch... but how else a woman has to survive in the modern world?! ;)) The imagery was the coolest - SARA'S KELPIES!!!:D
