Kseniya Simonova's Amazing Sand Drawing
Kseniya uses a giant light box, dramatic music, imagination and "sand painting" skills to interpret Germany's invasion and occupation of Ukraine during WWII.
I for myself was moved to tears.
Please spend 10Minutes of your lifespan, you assumedly won´t regret.
If you like it, plaese note it, share it, tweet it, comment it.

I saw a music video of him on Link TV and he just leaves you spellbound and almost makes you cry (okay I cried,too.). He tells a story with his sand drawings and slips from one to the other with such grace. Noted. Shared. facebooked. I love this Sand art! Thanks Parsifal! Made my day!

Sorry I was confusing! She is super! The one on Link is a guy. They both put so much emotion and heart into their work, if you're not moved something is wrong with you!

Thanks Jack, Your opinion was important for me.
This was to have a break from our everyday life.
We continuously expose our hearts to those which cause troubles.
Our heart needs a rest from time to time. So, I guess, this feeling was acquainted
deep inside?
Enjoy the life, as it is. It is only wonderful, I lack to describe it´s opulence.
This is what we are fighting for.
True, my friend?

We have so many bad news in our days.
Not to get completely insane one needs a break to realise where he really stands.

Wnen such information is touching your heart, give your o.k. to have your tears get rolling...
It is liberating your soul.
But, I see, you are in about my age, so you know, my friend. lols

You'r great Parsifal,
I remembered, that the love is life.. that when you lose the love.. the war ghoul will come to you, and take your life.
That when the love in your soul .. it will shine your heart .. it will light the path to you, the path for PEACE
That you alone can not live .. you need a partner... you need some one close to you .. some one to love you and make you LOVE.
That make you love your life, have something to live for .. have a destination .. have a function .. have a Goal. and work to keep that. to preserve your life and your partner .... to preserve the LOVE.
That when you don't have a partner .. you don't have the love .. you don't have a destination .. you don't have a function .. you don't have a goal .. you don't have to work any more .... work for what?... for nothing .. for no one .. the life will be cheap .. the path for WAR will be smooth and easy ...... the war will come to you.

Love is life .. live in love ..... Love your God.. Love your partner.. Love your world.. Love your planet.. Love your life.. LOVE YOUR SELF.

No problem, Michel P. Actually, the story comes from 2009.
Will see, if I can get the story to comment it/note it.

What would teach us this similarity?
Our wish to make a change.
Beyond borders.
Has your heart told you to do so?

I love it. Thank you.

Thank you, Philippa, just read the comments above.
It was the proper time to share. Kseniya Simonova
gave us the allowance to feel our hearts beating in
the sound of Love. Did you feel it?

Ukrainian artist, Kseniya Simonova was all of 24 years old when she won the “Ukraine's Got Talent 2009, watched by over 13 million people.” Glad she won. ‘Copied’ later, by many other ‘talent shows’, ‘themes’, being different.

The message of course was beautiful, like a sword piercing the core of ones heart, ones mind, ones very inner being.. Like her hands, through out ages, her grace, with the right attitude , her conviction towards her purpose, loudly speaks, the same message ‘Life’ too does give out, through out times, before man, to stop to see.. Sad for till date, 'We the people' missed the point..

The day we dare to accept the power ‘within’ we hold, the power of love, we’d learn to love and care for all life around.. Peace would be our goal, paving the way for each of us in unison towards the light.
