What is Music in Anjali's Language
“A world without love is a deadly place”
“Since the heaven and earth were created, you were made for me and I was made for you, and I will not let you go,” declared Chang Po to his beloved Meilan (Yutang 1954, P.73). The Chinese still cry over this Chinese fable.
Paris and Helen, Orpheus and Eurydice, Shiva and Sati, Laila and Majnu, we can come accross thousands of stories, poem, writing accross centuries over continents. There is one single thing common i.e Love. We spend our lives searching for it, talking about it, craving it. Love is called the greatest virtue. Sometimes we can't express it, it has to be felt.
Love is complex and fascinating. Romantic love is more complex and more mystery, hard to explain. As per psychological studies romantic love is associated with emotions, motivations and behaviors. In romantic love lovers experience extreme energy, hyperactivity, sleeplessness, moodswing etc. An important property of romantic love is 'intrusive thinking'.
Our Brain on Love..
We think that love and relationships are art than science, but there is actually a part of
science involved with falling in love. Both men and women experiences many changes during romantic love. Did you know that the chemicals released when we are falling in love are similar to the chemicals released when a person uses cocaine? Its true. But what is in that love that puts a person on 'cloud nine'?
“The first step in the process of falling in love is the initial attraction, It’s the powerful moment when we meet another person and feel energized and are immediately aware of our heart pounding.” says Elizabeth Kane,a clinical psychologist of South University. By psychologist Robert Sternberg, the three components of love are 'intimacy', 'passion', and 'commitment' - ( according to Triangular theory of love)
Intimacy, Intimacy refers to feelings of closeness,
association with our loved ones.
Passion, Passion refers to the strong and intense desire for love and sex.
Commitment, is the decision that one loves other, and commitment to maintain that love.
“Romantic love evolves when one feels a sense of interdependence, attachment, and that their psychological needs are being met.”
Science behind love..
I have some beautiful experience of watching my friends falling in love, even I watched myself falling in love. Person in love always smile when they talk about their mate, and they always like to talk a lot about them. Although people experience love uniquly. There are biological attraction behind the initial attraction and falling in love.
Dopamine, which is originated from brain and adrenal glands, stimulates the release of testosterone. Dopamine affects the genitals, the sweat glands, and also the senses. probably you have noticed that when you are in primary stages of love, you sweat more. As a consequence of dopamine release, mood and emotions are also influenced, leading to feelings of excitement and satisfaction. On other side, testosterone increases sexual desireness and aggressive behaviour and it may push someone to pursue the one who is fueling this intense response.
The neurotransmitters norepinephrine and phenylethylamine(PEA) act to focused attention. Norepinephrine is a stimulant, so it causes individuals to feel alert such as unable to sleep, and make them to notice and remember even the tiny of details about their mate. PEA is responsible for the feelings of dizziness. If the relationship doesn’t last, and PEA levels decreases and are responsible for the feelings of depression that can be experienced.
A feedback loop starts to form, with a brain reward system becoming involved. The reward system transmit chemical messages, via neurotransmitters, to various parts of the body, including the stomach, skin, genitals and other organs, which causes them to reciprokete to the brain. During the primary stages of love, this reward system is stimulated through very simple way such as, a lover’s touch, seeing their photograph, or even just thinking about this person can increase elevated mood. According to the study conducted by Dr. Helen Fisher using functional magnetic resonance imaging(fMRI) on those who were passionately in love(ten women and seven men) found that those brain reward system got activated even on looking at their lover pictures.
Where we are going...
Love, the word itself brings smile on our faces. The existance of love in in Every single civilization, era. But a few people thniks that romantic love i.e romance is created in twelveth century but first love poem dated 4000 years back. But some says love is the most powerful force in universe. Can we imagine our life without love? What if love would not exist in future? Have we ever thought about these question? I think most of us will say 'no'. Because we cannot live without love whether that love is for our mate, love for our children, love for our parents, love for our society. Only love can bring peace in our hectic world. We cannot say about future, we only can predict it. Let's see where love will take us!
What can be the conclusion of an infinite feeling! It does not matter whoever you are, love always guide your life and your daily life activity. Love will give you meaning of everything in nature. Love is worth us and what we possess. Love drives from our heart, and let it be driving force of everything and let it live in our heart to influence, guide, heal and motivate yourselves and others.
“Where there is love, there is life”
Meet Inna Bugeja, An amazing artist who uses glass as the object to project her imagination and convert it into something really amazing & breath-taking.
We recently caught up with Inna for a discussion where she discusses her life, her inspiration, her motivation, her love for glass painting and much more.
Nojoto Team: Hi Inna, describe yourself. Imagine writing a story on Nojoto.
Inna: I was born in Ukraine in 1979 and developed an early interest in art. Art has always been a part of my life.
Since I was 7, I went to different type of schools – arts, music (playing guitar), singing, dancing, and drawing. And I realized at age 10 that most of all, what I like is to draw.
I have been studying painting in an art school of Ukraine since last 5 years.
In school, I studied different techniques of drawing and have tested many materials that can be used for painting. Few which I tested are: canvas, ceramic, wood, iron and glass. And of course my love and my favorite is glass.
Nojoto Team: From where did you get the inspiration for drawing? What motivated you? — Any person or a situation in particular?
Inna: After my marriage in Malta and the birth of my child, I didn't had enough time to do my art. I have a
wonderful family, the best husband, a lovely baby. I had a happy family life, until I realized that I did not
seem to have enough of something inside of me.
All I had was good, but I felt as if my soul was empty. I realized that I need to grow creatively – and need to
listen beautiful music, should start reading interesting books, and meet creative people.
Years later, when my daughter grew up - I felt that I need to pick up my art on glass.
Nojoto Team: How did your parents, friends, school, hometown influence your passion for your art?
Inna: My husband always support me and encourage me my artwork. Sometimes when I start painting on glass, I just can't stop. I can paint for 16 hours without a break. It looks like I am in another dimension. He understands that my art is really important for me, so he helps me and motivates me to improve.
Nojoto Team: How do you take out time to follow your passion?
Inna: Night is my time. I can focus & paint at night because it is all quiet, and everyone in my family is also asleep, so that’s the time when I am in creative mood and follow my passion of painting on glass.
Nojoto Team: Why did you picked up Glass Painting only and not anything else?
Inna: I understood that glass is the material on which I want to paint, because Glass as a material can be worked in so many ways. Its ability to transmit and reflect light adds another layer of intrigue and meaning to the art. There is no other material with gives so many options to the artist.
I am using 3 different types of paints - transparent, opaque and pearl colours which are makes light effects.
Nojoto Team: What is the most fulfilling thing when you share your artwork with others?
Inna: I really appreciate when other talented people comment on my art. I love to hear both good and bad comments, and that's how I can learn and improve next time.
Nojoto Team: How do you go about creating your art — starting from thinking about it — to imagining about it — to actually doing it? Describe the creative process, which you take generally?
Inna: I love Night, Full Moon, Magic... I turn on relaxing music. In that moment I am in a Creative Mood and I ready to create my art.
Nojoto Team: What types of art you have experimented with?
Inna: Long time ago I tried to paint on a canvas. But the glass painting and painting on canvas are a different feelings. Glass painting is very slow work and it is exactly for me because I like when it takes time, so that I can indulge in to it.
Nojoto Team: What is your most favorite style of art?
Inna: My favorite is to mix the colors between each other.
Transparent with opaque, transparent with pearl or opaque with pearl.
With all these actions I can make different light effects such as - shadow, drop of water, 3D effect etc.
Nojoto Team: Are you an extrovert or an introvert?
Inna: I cannot exactly say if I am an extrovert or an introvert. When I am in my creative mood and I painting - I am an introvert. It is one side of me.
And another half is extrovert - I like meet new people. I love my Life which is full all different colours. We create our Life that is why most of my art are full of bright colours.
Nojoto Team: What is the most interesting comment/feedback you have got about your art and from whom?
Inna: One time I showed my painting called "Through the Rain" to an Art Teacher and asked for her advice.
She said it is incredible - how I got the effect of a wet road, glowing windows and the painted flowers with the effect of 3d and then she asked me to show some more of my techniques of the glass painting.
Nojoto Team: If you could do one thing for the World, what would it be?
Inna: I would like to paint the world in bright colors.
Nojoto Team: What is “your” favorite work till now?
Inna: My Favorite work till now Glass Painting called "Life and Soul". This painting means a lot to me. This is my soul, my spirit, my creative mood...
Nojoto Team: — If given 1 million dollars, what you want to do?
Inna: We all have an inner world that is quite distinct from the outer world. It is the world we meet when we have an emotional reaction, an idea, or close our eyes and live in our fantasies, imagination or dreams.
Rich person stops thinking about his inner world. That person thinking just about money. So I afraid to have a lot of money because I afraid to lose myself. What can I do with 1 million dollars is to give to person who is more competent in this matter.
Nojoto Team: What do you love about Nojoto? And why do you like it?
Inna: Why I love "Nojoto"? Because "Nojoto" loves me ;)
I feel that I am on it since the beginning and now it feel looks like a big family who cares about each other and I feel like I'm part of this friendly, positive, caring family.
There are a lot of talented people from whom I can learn something new and interesting. We are so far from each other, but through "Nojoto" we get a little closer.
It's interesting to know the world, another world without leaving home just by using Interest Based Social Network called "Nojoto".
Nojoto Team: What is your message for other people who are young and have a passion for a particular interest?
Inna: Never give up! If you have a dream then follow it. Setting goals is important for reaching your dreams. Successful people set goals and reach them step by step.
