It looks like cosmic fields - very trippy! The colors are so jewel-like and the interlocking circles create such a cool feeling of depth. I'm not sure what it is, but the image is very captivating.

I see a magic carpet being carried by the wind through a landscape with colors contantly changing into new colors, and shapes that are constantly shifting into new shapes, like life where once you learn the answers to the questions, the questions change.

thank you for sharing with us such a wonderful interpretation!

i agree with what you said about life and how it changes.. and the more we see the more we crave to search for greater things..
