Just You - Art & Time Project

by Wendie Busig-kohn

Just You by Wendie Busig-kohnJust You
'Left turn from hell',
Your chilling words rang so true
I was just another one of those people
Talking at you
On the same page
Yet, from a different stage
I, truly, see
I can only imagine
The fury you must sometimes feel
On other people’s unfounded expectations
Who fail to see
How very real
YOU are
Sensitive and Ingenious
Creative and discreet
A true new leader
Lives in YOU
And before your life is complete
You will find the final courage
To accept YOUR destiny
To carry that torch
And run your own direction
Light the world
In your own reflection
Let them see
YOUR very own prophetic fantasy
Let them know
The very heart of YOU
On the same page
Yet, in a world apart
From a different stage
Yet, of the same heart
YOU are not alone
YOU will not be betrayed
By those who SEE

The inside scoop!

Back in 2011, The Artist In You challenged folks to post their Art and engaged Poets from around the world to 'mash up' their words of art to translate how each work made them feel! Synergy of thought and creative process engaged hundreds of thousands to view, like and participate. 'The Ultimate Collection' (working title) Art and Poetry book series mission was born! Have you seen the video yet?

For those who love poetry! For those who love art! For those who still love the feel of a big coffee table sized book, to visit, peruse, enjoy each day...we are so excited to present our first intended publication "Art and Time"! Renowned and Burgeoning artists have created an opportunity, a visual keepsake presentation, that erases all imaginary lines, engages, explores, and substantiates our mission statement: Inspiring Change With Every Brush Stroke!

How you can help

Make a pledge!Through Kickstarter, our goal is to receive pledges for at least $5,000 by Sunday May 20th 2012. When this goal is reached, we will be able to begin producing the first in the series of "Art and Time" books - unique collaborations between artists and poets.

The proceeds from the sale of these innovative Coffee Table Books will be donated to support after school Art Programs for kids of all ages!

We hope you will share our commitment and enthusiasm by making a pledge to support this project via Kickstarter! Donate a dollar, or few if you can, and if you can pledge more support you can choose from a menu of great gifts and rewards - simply
