http://globalvenus.com | My life story 'Over the Ocean' is a poetic autobiography; an artistic documentary that invigorates the senses. It is a story that has the beginning, the middle and the end profoundly interlinked. A story I know the best and feel the most. It is a story I have experienced, I've lived; the one that made me smile, cry, feel love, passion, pleasure and pain, arts, languages, nations, countries, global friendship and a story it is that made me feel the magic and the mystery of Life itself beneath and beyond my name; it is a story of a Dream come true.

Life stories are not easy to summarize artfully and portray a whole life experience meaningfully in few minutes. I managed to do so, by concentrating mainly on the theme of the story, positive highlights, diminishing what was negative and painful.

I recited the narration I've written, which combined with echo-y voice and the wonderful evocative music creates atmospheric setting and enhances the nuances of drama within the story thus turning this poetic autobiography into an artistic documentary, slightly more entertaining than informative only.

I carefully blended 10 separate extract compositions from two albums, 'The Land of Broken Dreams' and 'I Will Never Forget You' by Steve Paled, to portray the sound of the magic and the mystery of, what it takes sometimes, for a dream to come true!
The evocative compositions that complement at best authenticity of my story are original based on other life stories, written, composed and performed by mr. Paled. His music can truly transport you, as he says in his website, into the world of love, beauty and tranquility.

*I thank my dear youtube friend Steve - The Music Man, for his two wonderful gifts, the albums he shared with me and my husband, calling him a 'Hero', and calling me the 'Angel of Art'; for his gesture of kindness, respect, trust and wish for me to use his music with my art, my dad's art and my writing.

And I thank you friends for being here, a part of my life, for your heart and soul you've shared with me too so far, for watching, listening and all your wonderful comments.

This is Venus, sharing my life story with you from the heartland of America.

My poem included in the story:

©by Venus

Never again will tears run down my cheeks
After midnight when the World sleeps
I'll sleep too
Never again will monstrous knocks
tremble my dreams

And I will shine like the Moon
Burn like the Sun
And I will sparkle like the Star
for never again my streets will be cold and empty

I survived to say
Dreams Come True
and more than that
Love makes it happen.
