There is an interest of pursuing the visual arts in painting and drawing that covers many interpretations of what the soul speaks. We try to talk about what our soul tries to tell, but fail to interpret with words. Many times it is abstract, but when it is clearly sighted, many times we see the "mythical" part of what we see; we feel it mythically. Once we describe in words what we see or feel, it becomes overwhealming (sometimes difficult to believe) -Feel the Breeze-
