You and Me: Call for art lovers and collectors.

You and Me, waves breaking on the shore Imprints made by the winds upon the desert sands Mountain and cliff textures, hundreds of millions of years old, Ripples of time. Nothing but the singular rhythms of an endless poem that Seems at times fleeting and at times everlasting. Romantic, Yes - Romanticism that tests reality. Mourning and adoring the ephemeral and craving the eternal. Romanticism without mysticism. Romanticism as texture, as rational expression. The ephemeral and the eternal The stillness and the ceaseless stream Spiritual and material intertwined Changing cycles Complex simplicity Whirlpool of endless poetry You and I exploit – the singular rhythms. And all is one. If you like this poem, You will love my neo- romantic art. Look for these sites: - http://www.art-gallery-yona.com and http://m.wix.com/yonalg/yona-arts-1

You Say Tomato, I Say Tomato

'You say tomato, I say tomato' We are planning an exhibiton about the nature of dialogic disagreement. Our proposition is that in this context misunderstanding occurs due to failures in communication rather than fundamental differences in opinion. Such malfunctions within conversations result from conflicting learnt definitions of words and differing conceptions of their meaning. We are looking for works that engage with semantics in spoken language in order to explore and demonstrate the above ideas. In light of the above please consider the following statement in regards to your own work... 'Every conversation is a game, every player has their own rules.' We are looking for completed works or proposals for new or relevant work by Friday 12th feb. [Video, audio, performance, spoken word] Please send an artist's CV, artist's statement and your proposals (maximum of 3), including links to past works, if available, by email to: nathalie.boobis@nxnwfestival.co.uk If you have completed work (maximum of 3 submissions), please post your artist's CV, artist's statement and DVD Pals, CDs or relevant documentation of performances to: Anna Smith, Flat 3, 5 Mauldeth Road West, Manchester, M20 3WB

I never believed in love spells or magic until I met this spell caster once when i went to see my friend in Indian this year on a business summit. I meant a man who's name is Dr ogboni he is really powerful and could help cast spells to bring back one's gone, lost, misbehaving lover and magic money spell or spell for a good job or luck spell .I'm now happy & a living testimony cos the man i had wanted to marry left me 5 weeks before our wedding and my life was upside down cos our relationship has been on for 3years. I really loved him, but his mother was against us and he had no good paying job. So when i met this spell caster, i told him what happened and explained the situation of things to him. At first i was undecided,skeptical and doubtful, but i just gave it a try. And in 7 days when i returned to Canada, my boyfriend (now husband) called me by himself and came to me apologizing that everything had been settled with his mom and family and he got a new job interview so we should get married. I didn't believe it cos the spell caster only asked for my name and my boyfriends name and all i wanted him to do. Well we are happily married now and we are expecting our little kid, and my husband also got the new job and our lives became much better. His email is ogbonispelitemple@hotmail.com http://www.saatchigallery.com/GrantsAndPrizes/includes/spam_check.php
