Now, as Lomir lost everything that he had, he started his journey
2. IMAGE (DISDIS)
As soon as Lomir saw the dunes he realised It was going to be a long and hard journey.
3. IMAGE (azzzy)
Awho are you? you’ve been with me since day one aren’t you supposed to be me? who am i?
4. IMAGE (naqi)
I am your dark side, that have been following you at all time
5. IMAGE (sophiadurand)
but I always feel like a child taking the hand of his father throughout the trip…
6. IMAGE (mephisto)
and Lomir remembered his father again when he saw the bike. Wasn’t it his father teaching him how to use bikes? But that is long, long ago
7. IMAGE (warning)
Then he saw someone, far, far away. He was my dark side?. Was he playing with me again?. No, I think it is a woman…. Wait!. But she disappeared.
He began to follow in her footsteps, and saw, that she had left a flower in the same place he saw her disappear…..
8. IMAGE (lupo)
He took the rose and wondered before falling……Who’s who ? and who I’m following for ?…
9. IMAGE (tharun)
Maybe the waters will wash away his pain he concern himself. along with his unwavering bravery and contentment, he dive into the uncharted sea, immersed with the mother of the sea, the soul was cleansed, his mind was at ease, the restraining boundary is none to be found. he achieved what we called, “Tabula Rasa”. a clean slate of mind.
10. IMAGE (bulletofmine)
he swam till late evening. " This is the best feeling," he talked to himself. He now believed that the water not even wash away his pain, but also made he felt like he was reborn again.
11. IMAGE (kamiraze)
Travelling on with his new found inner balance, Lomir came across the most interesting things and sights he ever experienced..
12. IMAGE (nacarilegea)
One morning, he was still, calm, admiring the strange creatures and structures around him. Paramir could not explain himself why he was attracted in that way by the vibrating red carpet, perhaps it was the beating he could feel through his feet …
Brave as Lomir was, he started the way up, facing the white shapes. He wondered, “who is calling me?, who is waiting for me?”
13. IMAGE (vicuna)
Lomir went inside this strange building and attracted by a strange composition hanging on the wall. What was this? A map? A way to follow? A kind of mysterious message intended for him?Something he should accomplish? He was puzzled by what he saw but also fascinated by the strange forms of what he saw… He didn’t sleep well the following night, making strange dreams…
14. IMAGE (jaalvarez)
Waiting … the sea give us the life … sometimes, we are waiting for something …
15. IMAGE (rodrigoalmeida)
Lomir still haven’t found the answers to his issues, so he decided to take all the money he still had left and start a new journey.
16. IMAGE (brommi)
But where could he go this time? The golden leaves were falling from the trees. It was autumn…Maybe he’ll go back into the sun?
17. IMAGE (awesomesther )
And so he went, but he got lost again… So, he stopped and asked for directions from a pretty young lady.
18. IMAGE (clickiemcpete)
He was very surprised though when he looked down and saw the pretty lady’s feet! What kind of trick was this? Perhaps a mischievous wizard was playing a joke on him! :)
19. IMAGE (zoezo)
No not a wizard at all! Suddenly a heavenly creature appeared before him…‘’keep going’’ she said, ‘’Theres someone waiting for you just around the corner past the post office’’
20. IMAGE (superlighter )
And you can not imagine his surprise when passing in front of a mirror … a turkey’s head popping up from the poor Lomir head! and other people around him have these horrible turkey heads out of their heads too!
21. IMAGE (lighttomysoul )
Ho ho ho! You are confused my boy, you are seeing visions; come on in, have some tea and tell me what it is you wish for. Maybe I shall grant your wish, or at least give you a ride on my sleigh to where the trail starts again, so you can continue your search.
22. IMAGE (rav_bunneh)
But to Lomir the sleigh looked like a giant beast of the sea. “Is this a dream, or a nightmare?” He said.
23. IMAGE (julepule_halligalli)
how could i have possibly been so blind the whole time?, he wondered, suddenly feeling releaved and not without a certain pride that it was him who was chosen for this deeper insight …
24. IMAGE (antibiotyx)
Lomir was enlightened, and out of nowhere, a golden Buddha statue appeared, playing good music and uttering words of encouragement to him. “Listen, Lomir, don’t be afraid, this is just a dream, a beautiful dream, not a nightmare, so cherish every second of it before it ends.” Lomir then realized the mission he needs to accomplish…
25. IMAGE (conshugs)
Lomir mate. i’ve told you once. i wont tell you again. put the diana down. and back to your knitting sunshine.
26. IMAGE (-alia-)
and suddenly everything becomes silently red and he’s terrified wandering about the possibility of the Buddha being actually the Devil!
27. IMAGE (arty-arta)
Soon enough he became super paranoid, and whoever he saw in this red light was evil…
28. IMAGE (air)
Then Lomir dipped in a blue sunset to forget the evil red light. He feels peace again.
29. IMAGE (reflex)
He perceived a silhouette in that red magma, but he couldn’t recognize what that was…it seemed to him like a woman, but he was unsure, so he started to follow what he thought was her…
30. IMAGE (natalieerachel)
And then she turned around to face him. When she saw Lomir, she screamed saying, “What have you done??”
31. IMAGE (basho)
Lomir was desperate. He could not understand the situation at all. Was it really a dream? Was he lost forever? Was it all his own fault? He closed his eyes and wished to be back home.
“Fear not, little friend. You’re doing it very well”, said a voice. And then Lomir could hear fantabulous music. He opened his eyes and saw two magicians, playing magic instruments and Lomir instantly felt better. Now he was sure everything was alright and joy would wait for him at the end of his journey…
32. IMAGE (kylethefrench)
his spirit soared and he imagined the days of his youth, the joy of his childhood city and feeding little crumbs of bread to the swans with his sweet grammy…
33. IMAGE (toropyzhka)
He remembered his granny always telling him he shouldn’t waste time on senseless things. But he didn’t know any more what had sense and what didn’t. So he went to the place where the time lived. He hoped to find some answers there.
34. IMAGE (retart)
The answers , the sense! .finally!..he found them on the bottom of a teacup. kinda dried and tasteless but hey the were still there.. waiting for him ..
35. IMAGE (demi-monde)
Lomir sensed a change in the air and when he looked up from his tea leaves, he was blinded by white light. Two figures, cat-like in appearance, seemed to be trying to communicate with him. However, he could not hear them through the barrage of music that seemed to come from inside his head.
36. IMAGE (bongofury)
Lomir fell asleep and had a dream: a funny musician told him “Your journey is long, you can not stop until you find your destiny” …
37. IMAGE (coca)
and right beside the musician a little boy said to Lomir: wake up, you only have 1up!!!
38. IMAGE (fafascinado)
The little boy said: You only have two hours to complete your mission, Lomir! Hurry up! And then, Lomir saw the big clock behind the little guy. It was almost 22.00h!
39. IMAGE (kneehigh85)
“Oh no” thought Lomir “I must complete my mission by midnight and I don’t even know what it is yet”. He didn’t know where to go from here and he had already missed the last tube out of town.
40. IMAGE (kittylikescake)
He left the tube station and began a long and lonely walk through the streets of the city. It wasn’t long until he came across a girl, who’d been standing all alone. She was incredibly happy to see him.
“Destiny told me we’d meet here. I’ve been sent to help you with your mission.’
41. IMAGE (mephisto19)
So Lomir made a step forward to that girl when suddenly and without warning a black hole appeared around him and soaked him up. he was gone. Everything was dark around him and he was kind of floating in a great black nothing
42. IMAGE (reneg88)
suddenly a burst of lights sucked him in and he was then spat out, where he least would’ve expected…
43. IMAGE (belengfiteni)
…The Ghost Town.
He had heard loads of stories about this amazing place. The place where everything is possible.
Welcome, Lomir – someone whispered- don’t be afraid. We were expecting you…
44. IMAGE (stouf)
… Ghosts were all around him. He couldn’t sense his own body anymore, he could only hear their whispers. Mermaid-like songs…
45. IMAGE (makny)
Lomir was seduced by this lovely songs, and the mermaids took him to a new dimension…
46. IMAGE (anabananarama)
The surreal environment left him unfazed as the then hush-toned sounds became louder and more pronounced..
47. IMAGE (2y2son4)
Lomir appears to be completely deaf. Desperately tries to see what was arround him. And there it was, tree branches like a spider’s web upon him…
48. IMAGE (erinwoodgatesphotography)
The web was approaching closer and closer to him, he was starting to feel faint, and then suddenly, a friendly squirrel appeared..
49. IMAGE (candle)
..and wrote a message on the snow to Lomir: “Look Here!: you are drifting apart with all the distractions, that’s why you can’t hear. The branches are your own imposed limitations, they are not real. Try to stay focused and be patient in order to achieve your goal”. And by hearing this, Lomir could see how the cold branches started fainting setting him free. He thought “it’s true, I can do anything!” and as he did this he felt the heat of the sun on his face again. Wandering the streets of ghost town he…
50. IMAGE (shaby)
Lomir looked up at the sky,like if someone had told him to,and with his great surprise he coude see four crosses floating over his head,moving in circles; he started feeling dizzy,but couldnt take his sguard away from them.He couldn’t feel the floor under his feet,the ghost city started fading,the crosses becoming bigger and bigger.
He started falling.
51. IMAGE (orangeuke)
His eyes shot open.
As if it had been just one long blink.
Solid. Ground. Standing. Upright.
Where was he?
Where wasn’t he?
All Lomir knew was that he was There.
One of many Theres he had to go to.
But this was not the Place. this was not the Destiny.
He had to keep moving, for anywhere but here was his Destiny…
52. IMAGE (dyluzo)
He started walking again hours turned to days days turned in to weeks before he new it he walked half way across the world .He stopped and sat down by the road side ,head between his knees .He tought I can’t take this any more ! A care stopped and took him in when he looked around he saw that he was picked up by a family oh no not kids noisy annoying creatures ! Put that would be the least of hes problems as he road along in the car along the Rocky Mountains.
53. IMAGE (lomosb)
he regains consciousness he opens his eyes and see’s something he’d thought couldn’t have been there
