Default War of Wings

[War of Wings]

I die for speaking the language of the angels.
Joan of Arc
dear Joan
conceptual-

“Now there’s an illustration, gentlemen — a real illustration. I studied that girl, Joan of Arc, for twelve years, and it never seemed to me that the artists and the writers gave us a true picture of her. They drew a picture of a peasant. Her dress was that of a peasant. But they always missed the face — the divine soul, the pure character, the supreme woman, the wonderful girl. She was only 18 years old, but put into a breast like hers a heart like hers and I think, gentlemen, you would have a girl — like that.” Mark Twain-[/]

It's obvious, Obama has wired the Angels. Trump was correct, he's even tapping the wires of fairies! That's just me frustrated that angels seem to be in retreat!

It is my belief in courage and strength in a female that so honors my art for Joan. I as a female encourage this strength in my gender. Strength is a great value either way you understand this girl

There is no use in glorifying historical person, especially when they have already been glorified in a religious and moral way like Jeanne d'Arc.

It is my choice to glorify. My art. My voice.

Well, what is the "use" of photographing a sunset or a rose?

At least a sunset is exactly that and a rose is a rose is a rose. Heros are far more complicated. They may be wonderful or even evil. But they can, at times, as in this case, serve in a major aspirational role models for young people. Joan of Arc is one such mythical figure to inspire young girls that despite being the physically weaker sex, they can achieve influence and authority if they plan, focus, train, prepare and persevere.

Exactly.. Asher! The glorification is in her courage and her strength that is a valuable substance for any human. To stand for that kind of courage in any endeavor is admirable.
