An image I made for Diesel's official Facebook page (in 2011).

 

Freedom is not far. I intended to represent a girl walking above clouds from one pyramid's top to another. This is a picture I took from a plane a few weeks ago when I traveled to Italy. I also made the quick sketch.

 

This drawing is, in some way, related to that other one.

A tight rope performer walks among the clouds in this moonlit fantasy" (Kerry McQueeney, The Daily Mail, Sept. 2011)

Freedom Is Not Far

 

A poem by Peter S. Quinn

 

Traveling to a strange star

Is in our hope and dream

Its freedom is not too far

In the space river stream

 

Clouds of hope there drifting by

Like white pyramids tops

Castles in the far-off sky

Never images stops

 

Walking on to the near moon

Our beginning steps where

But we will though be going soon

To stars everywhere

 

Flying across the space dim sea

To in between dark place

There is trance for you and me

The make-believe ways

 

Walking and holding balance

Is very hard to do

But if you have acquaintance

With dreams it's up to you

 

Clouds in our times travel

All's within our own stair

New thoughts in times marvel

Are soon all coming here
