Re: Madly in Love


For cryin' out loud - you are just flinging ink everywhere! I hated this on first sight. Then came back and saw something completely different. Your inkblots are driving me crazy! I thought they were tools to help CURE people???? Lol!
Seriously, if one of your doesn't print, I may need therapy.

Wow there's so much more going on here than just paint splatter. I love how you made art thats typically meant for toddlers into a damn good design with a lot of complexity and meaning. Great job with both of your submissions in this derby.

Hi Stellardig, I know your inkblot submission is getting the most votes, and it deserves the votes (I see a skull!!) but I am glad you did this one !, someone needed to do madly in love, (it was on my list of ideas to do) and this is a completely abstract and deep portrayal, love the two people and the relationship their closeness implies. Plus it's pretty!

This design reminded me of an old legend in Guam called

"Two Lovers Point".....

Once long ago, in the time when Spain ruled Guam, there was a proud family living in Hagatna, the capital city. The father was a wealthy Spanish aristocrat and the mother was the daughter of a great Chamorro chief. The family owned land and were highly esteemed by all, Chamorro and Spanish alike.

Their daughter was a beautiful girl, admired by all for her honesty, modesty, and perfectly natural charm. Her beauty bestowed the greatest pride and dignity unto her family.

One day, the girl's father arranged for her to take a powerful Spanish captain as her husband. When the girl discovered this, she was so distraught that she ran from Hagatna all the way to the north of Guam until she found a secluded and peaceful shore.

There, on the moonlit shore, she met and fell in love with a young warrior from a very modest Chamorro family. He was gentle, with a strong build, and had eyes that search for meaning in the stars.

When the girl's father learned of the two lovers, he grew angry and demanded that she marry the Spanish captain at once. That day at sundown, she stole away to the same high point along the shore, and once again met her Chamorro lover.

Her father, the captain, and all the Spanish soldiers pursued the lovers up to the high cliff above Tumon Bay. The lovers found themselves trapped between the edge of the cliff and the approaching soldiers. All the young warrior could do was warn them to stay back, and the father ordered the soldiers to halt.
The lovers tied their long black hair into a single knot. And acting as if they were entirely alone, they looked deeply into each other's eyes and kissed for the final time. Then they leaped over the long, deep cliff into the roaring waters below.

Her father and all who remained rushed to the edge to stare in great anguish.

Since that day, Chamorros have looked to the jutting peak above Tumon Bay with reverence. The two lovers remain a symbol of true love--a love in which two souls are entwined forever in life and in death. Forever after, the high point on the cliff was known as Two Lovers Point.

Re: Madly in Love


The story that you posted was lovely to read, I wish the end was happier, I would much rather that their true love hadn't killed them, if by any chance the legend is based on a true story, what a sad story.

Nice to see a piece of your inspiration!

Even though they may have died in the end. The moral of the story is that they were Madly in Love and no one could ever take that away not even death.
