Sudarshan, i guess i should actually comment on the quality of the photo over the aesthetics of the faces. I would if i actually knew something about photography, other than, "that looks good."

BTW, you only show your eyes in your pic. Hmmm....

Just like I appreciate your poetry? :)

Yeah..I'll soon find a photo in which I look good and post that...and btw why do i see a raging sea to portray the mermaid? :).

I'll let you in on a little secret...look for the title 'One'.

I never thought of the sea in the picture as 'raging', but i guess it could be. I love how it captures the embrace of a man and a woman, of earth and sea. I never felt like I was of this earth. There is no arrogance in this statement, simply that i've always felt different. Linking to you and other blogs has opened up a whole other world of beautiful creatures that inhabit this planet, this space with me. In truth, whether you choose to ever publish your whole picture or not is irrelevant. I only hope you can see your pictures through your own eyes.

We post comments on each other's blogs, and other ones as well. I was hesitant to even post my own picture, because of all the implications. Ultimately, i did, because i wanted to believe in me, regardless of what anyone else thought. I love the different perspectives, but i will only swim to the sound of one voice, the ocean's, my own.

What does Sudarshan mean?

Ah! The lady in blue.. a culmination of Western mind and eastern soul!
You are a very articulate writer and I cant match your wits in describing myself.
Raging sea - a blissful experience can overwhelm your senses at times. So...
The day I stop seeing my pictures through my own eyes, I cease to exist. Honestly, we are blessed with the supreme quality of exercising our choice...so much
that I have defined, redefined and refined myself into a creature of my liking. I am not yet rid of the curse to do things against my wish....the things others describe as those needed to survive. I have no choice but to agree, then.
I am not hesitant to post my picture...I just wanted to be a bit creative and since my webpage is
mostly about photography, people see the 'viewfinder' in my profile.
You are very strong...I really appreciate that and pray that I get enough courage to listen to my inner voice, at all times.

I am a very simple person and hence the below description for my name :)
Su: Good
darshan: I cant find the right word for that...

A good man yet to discover himself?

You are too generous. I have "miles to go before I sleep", as Frost once said. I think I portray myself as someone stronger in words, when on the inside, I'm just as scared as anyone else. I do think it takes courage to look inside at our wounds, and try to heal them to the best of our ability.

I see you found 'One'.

I like the personal portrayal of the "good man yet to discover himself". Whether you realize it, you are peeling away the layers every time you take a picture.

You are right...everyday is a lesson by itself....I am a dedicated student. Thanks.
I didnt think 'One' was that simple...I expected it to be 'Matrix'ed.
