If

If
A Universe of possibilities exists
And If
We could easily tap into that power
And If
We could use that power for the good of all
What If
Would be the best
If
To bring into existence?

What If that If is within each and every one of us?

What If we have that If’s power inside of us?

All of those Universes’ individual possibilities are there – within our minds. We have the power.

And how great we use it is within us also. What If we try – and it works?

Posted in response to Frank’s ‘If’ Challenge. I created a multi-coloured Universe and was just adding my Moon when my art program crashed on me – sending all of those amazing colours out into the Ether and out into the Universe. Nothing was saved. On my second attempt, I created the above image, inspired by the Aurora Borealis (not that I have seen it personally myself). Sometimes, simpler is better. Don’t overthink and just do. So then I didn’t think and just wrote.

  1. Love your response to the challenge, Tom.
    What would we have seen if your computer hadn’t crashed? 🙄
    Would have been easier to get to your “If” if you had left a link in the comments. 😉

  2. Ahh, the importance of learning to ‘save’ and ‘save’ and ‘save’ – every now and again, when working in art programmes. (I learnt this lesson the hard way – several times, before I finally learned to choose a name I’d remember and then save over and over again until the work was finished.) As you make the changes Tom, ‘re-save’ the work keeping the name the same, so that you just replace the former image with the new one. At least then, if a crash happens, you don’t have to start from the very beginning. (But you probably know that already and just forget to do it. (like me))

    What if …
    Absolutely BRILLIANT!! I LOVE it.
    Well done you clever chap. Worded so well and such a sensible argument for trying.
    Fabulous. Truly, I love it. ❤

    1. The thing is, Cobs, I get so carried away, any thought of saving just goes from my mind. I’m the same at work – and I should really save as the computers are always crashing there! 😀
      I am soooo happy you liked this post.

  3. Cheers to you for meeting the challenge. I see this as a challenge to humanity to reach down within itself to do what each of us know what is right. As a believer in the majority of the world is good, I’m touched by your version. … and an extra tip of the hat to you for also creating an IF image as well.

    1. Thanks, Frank. As soon as I read of your challenge, I knew exactly what I wanted to write. The image just came along, but I know you like your space images, so I thought ‘why not’! The one that crashed would have been of a similar theme, only with more colour.

  4. Aaah the dreaded bug in the wiring! 😦 ❤

    I have learned that I have several bugs in my PC: Little Snag, Malfunction, Tech Hitch and the worst: Screaming Foulup!!! 🙂

    Glad you have learned that you should save often though, it is a valuable reminder that is often a hard lesson… 😦

    Good picture though the moon looks a bit irregular!!! 🙂

    God Bless!

    1. Thanks, Prenin. I know, know, KNOW, I must save. But forget, and only realise when such a crash occurs. Not very often, but annoying when they do.
      I will save more. I WILL!
      As for the Moon – it’s merely an optical illusion. 😉 Hehehe.

    1. ISADORA!!! Hello! 😀 Nice to see you again! And not to worry – my blogging is all over the place at the moment!
      I think we should always be aware of our own power. I’m not all the time, either!
      And all’s fine – I hope the same for you.

      1. From ONE who’s all over the place to another … let’s just be glad that the other person still knows who we are. 😂🤣😂😅😆
        I’m glad I was able to get to your humble abode for a quick visit. As always, it was full of reading and artful delights.
        Happy Sunday … Isadora 😎
