Making Waves

This is how wars start in my world.  An artist creates a vision of how he sees the world – he calls it LOVE.  He gives color and form to his vision because he wants to share it with others.  Another artist happens by who has a different vision of the world so he paints over work of the first artist with a vision of his own.

Pretty soon, another artist sees the first two artists’ visions and decides it is not enough; he adds to it with colors and symbols of his own vision.  As time goes on, many more artists view the work.  But it is not the vision that they want the world to see so they revise it to reflect the way they see the world.  The visions and revisions continue until the visions overpower them.

Then they blindly fight for our vision of the world.
