I often hear praise for my stuff, mingled with confusion and even contempt - a real mixed bag of opinions, and I absolutely love it all! But when some folks come up to me and ask what kind of dope I’ve been using...

I have a little anecdote for you, regarding the gallery & street art shows I do throughout the year and the way people relate to what they see on display in my exhibit.

Tiesha, you seem wise beyond your years, and judging from the way you’ve commented here, I’d say any child would be blessed to be able to call you his mother.

You're good Patrick. I respect your opinion and admire your forthrightness. Rock on duder!! I feel the need to concede commenting to and fro has been a pleasure INDEED! ;) Have a splentastic Mon. May you be fruitful in all your dealings1 ;)

Like in all things in life, we find some forms less appealing than others but again it is all based upon a matter of one's OPINION...'artistic value' on the other hand would be solely defined by the artist himself or those in review. No?

And in answer to your ? NO we as a society, as a community or as a person in ourselves should express ZERO TOLERANCE for NEGATIVE influence of any kind. However, 'art' comes in many forms; it is an expression in itself. You ARE an artist.

You are right; however, WE as a society in our own negligence failed to protect and preserve our most viable assets a long time ago...Our Children. Conformity is key in all respects of the word. ;) I like you fishpatrick. Difference & all!

YOU are RIGHT even if only 2 YOU as AM I dear heart. After all, that is what makes us individuals; as it is okay for us to have a difference of opinion. :) A world full of either one of us would be BORINGy simply put! lol

To say the least, Tiesha, your last comment leaves one with the impression that it was eloquently written, yet it fails to target the issue of whether we, as a society, should tolerate art forms that foster a cult of drug abuse.

We all support somethings more than others;in many cases it is irrespective of our own desire with or without prior knowledge of intended purpose(s). As in honesty, sometimes we have to face painful truths whether we can afford it or not.

Definition of the act of praying: how to do nothing and still think you’re helping.


fishpatrick

I will continue to object to any art form that glorifies the cult of drug abuse, whether it is manifest in rap music, commercial radio and TV, unfettered access to the Internet by minors, or performance art & music venues.

The ability to recognize the difference between right and wrong necessarily defines the moral imperative and keeps us from doing harm to others when we act based on the choices we make.

As a parent I realize that I cannot be everywhere nor can I protect my children from all the harsh realities of the world we live in today BUT I can keep it real, stay educated thru them and pray.

Speaking of protecting their innocence...commercials today are pretty much 'soft porn'; there used to be a time that "animation" was strictly "G" not PG-13, NR under 14...furthermore, responsibility is within the family unit...

knowing the difference between right and wrong does not necessarily make you 'mature' or 'responsible' its the choices you make. Be that wrong, being prepared to suffer the consequences for your actions.

I happen to be a mother of two children of my own 11yr. and 15yr. I agree in trying to preserve their innocence but I also encourage them to not be lead but to lead; as God gave us free will they should make their own choices...

Responsible, mature adults must in good conscience act to protect healthy young minds from assault by irresponsible ‘pushers’ of the cult of drug abuse.

We may exercise the freedom to speak or write our opinions, but not when those opinions are directed at individuals who may potentially be harmed or strongly persuaded to engage in harmful behavior.

I support the First Amendment, but only to the extent that it restricts government, not my fellow citizens, in cases where these freedoms are usurped.

unaware of what's going on around them. What they do find HIGHLY offensive is dishonesty or being presumed "stupid" or "clueless" TRUTH be told. 'fish_patrick'...did you catch ANYTHING yet? ;)

freedom of speech, creativity, and expression are for ALL people, age; race. "Gobbeledygoop" is what those who seem to THINK their the only ones who are entitled to an opinion. Teenagers are not excluded from this entitlement nor are they..

Check out my entry, "the Sage Seed". Set in the early 80's, was inspired by a true story. Hope you like it.

Perhaps leash11's 'model' is one of the greatest literary works of all time, so sublime in its understatement, so expressive, concise and to the point.

It's tempting to ask, "...well, what color is her hair?" yet that would be unfair, because she probably just doesn't know the difference between showing and telling, having learned somewhere that a picture's worth a thousand words.

how is model writing?

The previous comment is unadulterated gobbledygook, as is the aforementioned 'Addict' - an especially disgraceful submission as the majority of entries in this contest were created by teenage children. This entry should be removed.

JayLoyal "Addict" is intoxi*ficating to say the least. His words embody the essence of what it feels like to be consumed by a substance that controls you under the impression you are in control which by all means would mean it is NO MORE.

Let's hope that Aleesha's story - Abused & Scared - is NOT autobiographical.
