“Window to her Heart”
mixed media on wood

you know that feeling you get sometimes when you wake up in the morning and you’ve suddenly remembered that you bought a new pair of shoes the day before and you get to wear them today? or a new haircut? and that feeling makes you smile because it’s like a new gift all over again. it’s almost like a wee bit of what we felt on christmas morning when we were kids. that’s how i feel when i wake up and i’ve finished a piece the night before. i wake up to a fresh creation. it just makes me grin.

it is raining again. i can hear it outside, especially when the cars pass by. it’s cold again, too. there is something about rain and cold weather and changing colors that just settles my spirit a bit. it couldn’t have come at a better time.

Sending much love,

    As a veteran of Somalia, Bosnia, Kosovo, Afghanistan and Iraq…over these last few months…I’ve wondered to myself, “Is it possible to reduce the amount of hatred and violence in our world?”

    Last week, before going to sleep, I began asking myself a lot of WHAT IF questions.

    The central theme behind my thoughts are neither anti-war or pro-religion. My words are not meant to inspire scenes of flag-burning or political protest signs. Sadly, I realize that sometimes a lasting Peace means war.

    However, unless someone and everyone start talking about the idea of Peace…

    Even if it’s just for two short minutes…

    It’s possible that an unstoppable firestorm of hatred may one day burn its way across our entire planet.

    Instead of pointing out those differences which separate mankind…

    It’s my hope that the humanity within all of us will somehow prevail…

    If you write a passage about what the PEACE means to you, I’ll build a simple BLOG page featuring your words and original images…

    I love that feeling of something new waiting for me in the morning. I haven’t discovered the same feeling yet about making art, but what a nice thing to look forward to! Love this piece.
