About the Blog

In 1993 Christina Beckenäs founded The Academy of Symbolism in Art. Read more: http://symbolisminart.com. As a symbolist Christina believe that art apprehends more absolute truths which could only be accessed indirectly. Thus, the painted and sculptured scenes from nature, human activities, and all other real world phenomena in a highly metaphorical and suggestive manner. The paintings and sculptures provide particular images or objects with esoteric attractions.On this blog you can read about Christina and other artists´works of art, interesting ideas and cultural events.

While we do the dishes, cleaning, blogging, eating, socializing with friends and relatives etc. We can give a thought to and act for Africa - without guilt with compassion.

Ligt a Candle/Neil Young Lyrics

I LIGHT A CANDLE FORPosted by Christina Beckenäs Sun, March 20, 2011 06:31:29

Lyrics Neil Young "Light a Candle":


..."It´s a chance to give new meaning to every move we make,

In the caverns, in the caves, where we come from.


Instead of cursing the darkness,

Light a candle for where we´re going,

There´s something ahead, worth looking for"...
