Dimitrij, I've been re-reading your story over and over again, and I must confess that the idea behind the picture is what I like the most about your entry. I think we share the idea that there is a common denominator to life across the universe; which is empathy and finding a bit of ourselves in every other living being.
Our images may look different, but the principle behind them is the same.

Much appreciation mate.

Gerardo and Eric: thanks so much for your comments, my Friends And I'm very glad you like the story as well.

Yes Gerardo - I think that at our very core - if you cast away all the superficial differences - we're all basicaly the "one" Being or to put it into other words - we're apertures through which the Universe can know and inquire about itself.

I think that the most important question in life is "Who are you?" and that is, I think, the true reason why we find aliens so fascinating.

Through them - so we hope - we can better understand who we are and what our place in this world is.

But enough philosophy - I wish you the very best of luck and all the best!

Dimitrij.

I agree, it turned out excellently. There's a lot I like about this piece but it's the atmospheric lighting that really makes it in the end. Well done!!
