Neurosis by Exileden Neurosis by Exileden
"The Red Winds"

That was supposed to be original title of this photo... I remember during my travels into vast mountains, hiking on high elevation amongst dark stormy clouds I saw a huge red fields on peaks. That area was called Red Winds. It was so beautiful, shining red grassy fields mixed with dramatic thunderstorms.


Yesterday I've been on lonely walk through fields in the woods with my dogs. I did some self-therapy photos.... and here what I caught, fiery, burning fields which reminded me a lot of Red Winds peaks....
I entitled it as neurosis since it really reminds me a lot, that flow of red, fiery lights shimmered on leaves are like fire burning your soul. Since recently I'm intensively suffering on neurosis, PTSD, hallucinations, due to my post-surgerical damage and in general I'll have a really hard time awaiting for me.
It exactly feels like what this photographs represents. That stress is burning out your soul, emotions, thoughts, heart, liver and everything with yourself. But I'm really trying my hardest to fight, I have to be a warrior to myself. That's why I apologize for my inactivity online there.

I'm just sharing my feelings with a photograph.

PS: the original photo is a lot smoother and better quality, it was just extracted from my FB post.

You portray your emotions very well with this picture. I also want to say good luck and don't give up. Everything that you say and post is always full of thought, intelligence, and even causes the reader to think deeply too. The world would be a much sadder place without you.

Just remember, after these plants burn away, next year there will be another field of plants. Fresh and new and lovely. But its really how you live life that will make it better or worse. I am so sorry about your illness, and know that we will be here for you <3

Lovely picture, but what really captured it was your story. But be not just fragile and easy to burn, but ready to spring and become beautiful again when the timing is right :iconhugplz: Stay strong and good luck.

I think it is the third day since the Hyperion crashed on this desolate habitable planet, but I cannot tell, as the swollen reddish sun stands still in the sky... The last of my water supplies have run out, and it is risky to try the local water as I may fall ill to extraterrestrial microorganisms or unidentified toxins, but I face an even surer death by thirst if I do not locate a supply of drinkable water... the atmosphere is thin, like a knife cutting into the lungs, and the gravity slightly heavier than I'm used too... The local vegetation measures quite toxic on the triple-spectrum molecular analyzer.... Trying to stay in the shade, the radiation levels read dangerously high in the open, perhaps the sun is flaring... Local creatures stalking me for last few hours, clearly intelligent as they use spears tipped with sharpened glass, am trying to evade cross country through forest of stupendously tall reddish trees... my Lewiston Mk17 charge cell reads at half-charge, I could burn my pursuers down in a few seconds only but at the risk of leaving my weapon empty... I believe I see a mechanical robot amongst their number, but they can't have access to such technology, the heat must be bewildering my brain...

Utterly random, I know- but alien planets could have vegetation that is not green, but red or even black. :) I'm sorry to hear you aren't feeling well right now, here's hoping for your quick recovery!!

As for the picture. I love the quality of it even if extracted. It's also amazing how you captured your feelings into this picture. I really don't know if I could ever do that without drawing the exact thing out.

Neuroza, skąd ja to znam (ADHD w połączeniu z osobowością neurotyczną to pewna droga do samobójstwa, a ja żyję, yay : D ) świetnie w sumie to opisałaś - ciągła walka ze sobą nawet na najbardziej podstawowych płaszczyznach i szalejący ogień w duszy, który zapłonął tylko po to, by za chwilę nie zostało nic więcej po za popiołami i zimnem.
Zdjęcie świetne, niejednoznaczne, można odczytać tak, jak się chce - albo, że te gałązki płoną, albo, że to tylko gra świateł. Po prostu podziwiam, póki co aparat mam zaledwie od półtora tygodnia i nadal go oswajam (oswajając jednocześnie siebie).
Trzymaj się tam i powodzenia : )

Sometimes, I look at photos, and they're just photos. But sometimes I look at a photo, and it is something more. This is one of those times. At first I was captured by the intensity of feeling captured in this photograph, then I read you comment. I am familiar with medical issues and difficulties, and it sounds like you're going through a pretty rough time in your life. But I've also been following your artwork, and reading what you write in artist comments and journals as well, and you appear to be a very strong person; hopefully you will be able to fight through this--don't give up the fight!

Well, I'm strong not because of stereotypical being an adamant woman, but strong because I want to change, improve and pursue my dreams starting from changing myself since I've learned a lot about the life. I have strong will and stubborn soul of my true self resting in deepest corners of myself and I have a huge will to improve my life. A will to be happy. But really, I'm very sensetive, emotional and fragile person.

More power to you; I didn't figure you fit into any stereotype. Everyone is sensitive, emotional, and fragile deep down, but truly strong people recognize this and try to better themselves anyhow. Your courage is inspiring.

Anytime. It's tough to go through something like what you're going through simply on willpower. You may have friends and family nearby who would drop everything to help you through it as well, but even knowing someone whom you haven't met wishes you the very best possible can be bolstering and gratifying. I hope all the wishes of your followers, as well as mine,here on DA and elsewhere bring you that comfort. If you need any suggestions for keeping your spirits up, I can suggest music and good books as well. Fight on Eden, victory and strength await you at the end.
