Circle of Life
Everything the Power of the World does is done in a circle.
The sky is round, and I have heard that the earth is round like a ball and so are all the stars.
The wind, in its greatest power, whirls.
Birds make their nests in circles, for theirs is the same religion as ours.
The sun comes forth and goes down again in a circle.
The moon does the same, and both are round.
Even the seasons form a great circle in their changing and always come back where they were.
The life of a man is a circle from childhood to childhood, and so it is in everything where power moves.

I’ve been spending time trying out a majority of the different fractal flame generators (for Windows) out there with the latest one being jWildfire. The group on Facebook is very supportive, with some even sharing their flame files for others to play with, and the digital art they post is eye candy beautiful!
I created this by modifying one of the shared flame files. I found it amazing how changing just a couple of settings made this completely different than the original file. As I’m writing this I just tried the MutaGen tab on the above flame file and got back 25 thumbnail images that look completely different from each other and this image! I chose one I liked the best and will be changing the colors and posting soon.
