Hi Indra, thanks for your comments. That’s part of a book I have created, all about metaphysical "flights", and the future, the concept of Time, eschatological theories, alternative realities and the search for one’s inner realities and the like. I call it "A Metaphysical Journey into the Future". Needless to say I never got a publisher1) Check out some of the other pieces from this book which I have on display here, if you are into that sort of thing: the images titled: "Fly out of Time" , "Transcendental Wanderings", "Metropolis", and my favorite, "awakening". As you can see they are all heavy with symbolism and open to interpretation1 I might upload more images from this project in the future1

i went through all of the artworks that were related to this piece and now im curious about your book! please try to find a publisher soon, sci-fi, if you will, is something i am quite interested in and i think that your artwork and writing can create something awe-inspiring.1
i know it sounds weird but it gets me excited!1

Hi Indra, thanks for your kind words 1 About the book: The publishing industry is changing fast and it’s quite difficult to convince a publ. about a new concept, especially one that they do not know in which category it falls... Everything is highly "specialized’ now and it is all about marketing...
The "problem" with this book for example is that it deals with many genres, New Age, sci-fi, metaphysics, even poetry (I combine my own words with the poetry of sublime poets such as Neruda, Rumi, Rilke, D. Thomas to name but a few), which means the New Age publishers consider it too "dark", the sci-fi ones don’t get the poetry, the more spiritual ones, hate the sci-fi connotations, and the ones that publish poetry can’t afford full color books.... You get the picture. And I can’t even self publish it, because even if I did, a distributor won’t touch it, for all the above reasons... And then I can’t sell it on Amazon and such web sites because I live in Cyprus and I have to have a bank account and IRS No either in the US or Uk or whatever, and frankly I don’t want the hassle.... I know in my heart that there is an audience for this sort of work out there - people like yourself for example - but it is difficult to have the publishers believe it...... So this book (like a few others unfortunately, I have spent years and years creating) will remain in my drawers.... Isn’t this a sad story?! 1)

Anyway, I did publish an Angel sort of alternative Angel book (titled: ANGELS - A tribute to Angels / Angelic Invocations) in which I have included some of the images and words of the above book, if you are interested. It too deals with metaphysics and humanity’s struggle to ascend and all that1 Check it out at my web site: www.fanitsa-petrou.com

Anyway thanks again for your interest in my work, and post some work soon ;-))
