Don’t let it go out…U2 “Song For Someone”

ie-tourlogo

U2 are and have been my favorite band since I was teen ager.
I had once the privilege to attend one of their unforgettable concerts when I was in Italy they came to Naples my native City the Stadium was sold out it was a beautiful experience! I would love to see them again. But today I came across this beautiful song where  illustrator and photographer Matt Mahurin directs this visual meditation on ‘Song For Someone’, from U2’s latest album Songs of Innocence.

I love the lyrics beautiful words very healing inspiring a song for who need hope looking forward to the light…
I hope that you enjoy it! Don’t let it go out…

Here is the video posted from U2 Facebook I hope you can see it!

U2 “Song For Someone”

You’ve got a face not spoiled by beauty
I have some scars from where I’ve been
You’ve got eyes that can see right through me
You’re not afraid of anything they’ve seen

I was told that I would feel
Nothing the first time
I don’t know how these cuts heal
But in you, I’ve found a right

If there is a light
You can always see
And there is a world
We can always be
If there is a dark
That we shouldn’t doubt
And there is a light
Don’t let it go out
And this is a song
A song for someone
This is a song
A song for someone

You let me into a conversation
A conversation only we could make
You’re breaking into my imagination
Whatever’s in there is yours to take

I was told that I would feel
Nothing the first time
You were so long to heal
But this could be the night

If there is a light
You can always see
And there is a world
We can always be
If there is a dark
Within and without
And there is a light
Don’t let it go out
And this is a song
A song for someone
This is a song
A song for someone

And I’m a long way
From your hill or cavalry
And I’m a long way
From where I was, where I need to be
If there is a light you can always see
And there is a world we can always be
If there is a kiss I stole from your mouth
And there is a light, don’t let it go out
Songwriters: CLAYTON, ADAM / EVANS, DAVE / HEWSON, PAUL DAVID / MULLEN, LARRY.

Designing a great match…

Creativity and Inspiration is always Magic…

All my Jewelry Designs are single pieces created to have a life and standing on their own beautifully in their unique and unexpected combination of natural elements. All my creations can be combined together also if they aren’t created as sets. I like the idea to give the ability to mix and match pieces between them, or stack them together creating your own story that can be changed anytime you wear my Art.
Usually the beautiful natural gemstones I use in my designs are all a possibility of infinite combinations of colors, shapes or based on meanings that goes beyond the stones.

I like to title and give names to my Jewelry
and create a story for each piece, based on the meanings and natural powers  that nature has.

Nature and natural elements are what inspire me the most in this…

New Design – The OM Necklace

OmThe OM Sacred symbol it is also known as the OM Sacred Sound of the Universe it is not easy to explain the pure meaning in few words. “Om” is familiar to anyone who’s takes yoga classes, where it is often chanted at the beginning and end of the session. If you are not familiar with this symbol you can read more here and in this other source here.

I have been always fascinated by the sacred OM symbol that I wanted to design a necklace representing it. I designed and crafted a silver wired OM pendant created in two pieces. I wanted it to be as accurate as possible while forging, twisting and hammering the silver wire in a OM shape.

OM Necklace

I selected a beautiful combination of natural healing stones with great meanings, the Orange Agate have the power to harmonize the positive and negative forces that hold the universe in place.  Amazonite  in beautiful shades of blue-green soothe the spirit and calm the soul.  Smoky Crystal protects against negative energies.

Om Necklace 2
Necklace is avaiable in Limited Edition as Custom Order for more info please contact me.

Hills_Sunset

Today I want to share this beautiful photo I took last night at the sunset.
Almost every night we go on a hike on the hills around the area and I am experiencing some of the most amazing sunsets! Yesterday when I took this shot I was all the way on top of one of the hills. I took this photo with my phone quickly without thinking too much, I just wanted to grab that beautiful moment and the lovely colors in the sky. When I came back at home I opened the photo on my computer and with a beautiful surprise I see that I have been able to capture that amazing red sun ray I found it to be so beautiful and amazing like a Divine sign. I didn’t edit this photo at all it is just as I captured it. I like the time spent hiking those hills it is a great way to workout and it is beautiful to be immersed in the wild nature, there is silence up there a place to meditate and listen the inner voice of your soul blending with the wind.

Over the Hills

This is another photo I took a while ago on the same Hills and it is almost on the same spot I took the shot of the sunset.  This one was taken few months ago at early time when the sun was still high in the beautiful blue sky.

Open Your Wings…

Title - Peaceful Sensation Digital Art

 

Open your wings

When you overcome something
that was hurting you and your soul deeply

you learn a new way to express life
you are in another dimension

and you have a choice

you can turn something that was bad
into something good.

Open your wings to others
be free
and let your heart fly without fears
you could be an Angel to someone else.

Happy Anniversary! 13 years in USA and Anniversary for my Blog! ;-)

Los Angeles International Airport

Yesterday August 22 was my 13 years Anniversary here in USA I moved from Italy in 2002
and lived in California since then, I just wanted to share this with my WP friends also because yesterday was my Anniversary on WordPress a nice coincidence!

anniversary-2x

Happy Anniversary with WordPress.com!
You registered on WordPress.com 3 years ago!
Thanks for flying with us.
Keep up the good blogging!

I had my Blog active on WordPress for about more than 2 years without posting anything!
I wanted to reserve my domain name yesterdayafter.com since I love it a lot!
At the same time I was working on launching my Jewelry Designs Collections expanding my horizons.
I was only working on the graphics and designs to customize the Theme layout of this Blog reflecting my own creativity.  I wanted to launch it as soon I was ready, but no any word was ever posted also some life events slowed the process. Then one day almost 5 months ago it was the end of March, I decided to jump in and made a very small first post announcing the opening of my Etsy Shop.
I felt like I was a drop into the ocean, almost impossible to be seen in between the millions of other Blogs.
Then people started to discover my presence I was posting once in a while my Jewelry and Artworks and I got very nice feedback! As Artist I express my Art in different ways, my posts are not always about the same subject. I work with different media and my followers showed appreciation and love for my talents.
Also I decided to go around leaving comments, and not just stay here reading. I let people know how much I loved their work and they responded to me beautifully with kindred words and they started to follow my Blog recognizing me with Awards. I felt very honored for such a beautiful recognition.

Starlight Blogger Award 05/30/2015In May I also created my own Award to pass on  “The Starlight Blogger Award”  I launched this Award to highlight and Promote Inspiring Bloggers and I am so happy that the Award is going around the world a lot! Bloggers link to me and I have chance to discover new intersting Blogs.

Ten weeks ago I decided that I wanted to do something to give back to this beautiful Community starting my Meet and Greet Event  where every week I choose to Feature one Blogger and Blog that I admire and I am Inspired from, introducing  them to inspire others.

YA_Feature
I felt very welcome here during those months I discovered amazing Blogs and Bloggers that are beautiful friends!
I am stunned and amazed about the fast growth it’s fascinating!
…..THANK YOU to ALL…..
each one of you made this happen with me!

I am very happy because our strength together it’s very powerful and encouraging to keep going for all of us…
Stay connected and support each other good things will come!
