Who Am I?

Published September 8, 2019 by Laura Crean Author
When I was 14 I wrote this little poem; I think many a teenager with your typical teenage angst will relate, and maybe a few adults as well: –
 
Why am I here on this planet of ours?
Why do I do what I do?
How come I make the choices I make?
Which door do I go through?
 
How did I get here?
Why was I born?
How do I know if I’ll see the next dawn?
 
How can I hear?
How can I see?
What is the reason?
And why am I me?
 
The questions we ask
we must answer ourselves,
if we can’t find them,
wait till life tells…
 
Well 32 years later and life has taught me a lot, but my life never made sense until I found Jesus or rather he found me; and all the confusion, fear, doubt and anxiety was washed away.
 
Today at church we had a guest speaker – Thomas Fretwell, and he spoke on the subject of identity. His book “Who am I” is next on my reading list – in today’s confusing world, not only do individuals suffer with identity crises but society does too. There are so many World views, philosophies, gurus, voices…
 
I know the voice I listen to – do you?
 
My identity is as a child of God. If you want to explore who you are and do a little soul searching, maybe this is a good time and place to start.

Awesome products featuring my Artwork

Published August 14, 2019 by Laura Crean Author

Hello everyone.

I have just recently discovered a cool website that will put my art onto lots of different products such as cushions, phone cases, clothes as well as on wall art and even home furnishings like bedspreads. It is very satisfying to see my designs on these products and it would be lovely to know people were buying my artwork in some form. The only trouble is, much like trying to self publish my books, I don’t seem to be able to generate any traffic to my sites. Please check out my artwork on redbubble.com and my books on Lulu.com And just as importantly, please share your enthusiasm of my creative endeavours with your own followers and friends as this will help me to gather some interest in my work. Thank you. Here are some links to my work and some examples of the products…

My well of creativity hasn’t completely dried up…

My Peace of Mind

Published April 27, 2016 by Laura Crean Author

I have to reblog this because both the painting and the poem are just so beautiful.

FullSizeRender (4)Original art. 20″ x 24″ Oil on canvas.

I painted this lovely scene in 2009, except it was much gloomier and quite depressing. Just last year, I decided it wasn’t finished and added colors that I believed my heart belted out if it wasn’t for joy. Then I decided it isn’t nearly done if I don’t add a poem. 🙂 I’m probably going to work on this again, because I already see some things I need to touch up on. Always happens after taking a picture. But anyway…..

There exists a beautiful place

Of a blue river flowing with grace

It’s nowhere found on Earth’s face

Not the sight of man can be seen or traced

I walk here when peace is hard to find

I lay here to have that peace of mind

I pray here when the world seems deaf and blind

I return here for a heart…

Dream Blog – Indian tower illusion

 A view of the Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest tower.
(Karim Sahib/Agence France-Presse/Getty Images)

This is a very quick post before I go out to work but I wanted to get it down and out there in case anyone wants to offer up an interpretation.  A very strange dream last night – I was in India and I was a little girl.  My mother was in a hospital in a city that was off of a square.  There was lots more to the dream before but I can’t remember it, but at the end I was standing in the square with lots of other people coming and going in there daily activities when my eye was suddenly drawn to this high tower that suddenly exploded and the explosion and the tower went up as if it was sucked up into the air.  Then it re-materialized and started morphing into different shapes.  There was absolute panic and confusion and fear as people started running around all over the place.  Another little girl playing in the square looked at me and said: “I know this technology” and she started pulling out a little electronics kit and started screwing together circuit boards and filling it with all the right components and in the end she had what looked like a little remote control.  She pointed it at something and it changed shape.  I can’t remember what things changed into and I didn’t know how it worked so I asked her and she said it was something about changing the very nature of the molecules.  I wasn’t sure.  Then these terrorists started chasing us and the rest of the dream was us trying to get away from them and us battling with these molecular or holographic technology weapons.  It was the strangest dream I think I have ever had.  Any suggestions as to what it’s all about – let me know.

 

Artificial Intelligence – The future is Nao!

Published September 4, 2015 by Laura Crean Author

AI The future is Nao…

Time Travellers United

I have been planning this post for a few days now.  And now all of a sudden robots are all over the news, so I shall post it now.  I wonder where artificial intelligence is going?  Is the future now?  How intelligent are robots going to get and what will they be doing?  Will they really take over the world or are they actually incredibly useful for doing those dull, dirty and dangerous jobs humans don’t want to or can’t physically do?  Will there ever come a time when we won’t be able to tell the difference between a human and an artificial robotic humanoid?  Take a look at some of the technology out there and make up your own minds.

Personal robots are here already and the Nao robot is small and cheap enough to be bought by schools and individuals to interact with and he can be personalised…
