Artist's Description

Phoenix; a mythical bird that dies in flames and is reborn from the ashes ( Wikipedia)

I may fall down a thousand times..i know by now i have the strength to rise again also….
This past weekend someone showed me a video about an australian guy without limbs… he was talking to a group of schoolgirls and at a certain point he showed them his vulnerabillity by falling down… teaching them you can give in at that point and say i can’t get up on my own.. but you can also decide to give it a go.. and keep trying untill you find a way… trusting in god and in your own strength..
The vid. brought tears to my eyes… so often i thought i had hard times in my life.. seeing this guy enjoying his life to the fullest made me once more aware it is all about how you look at life, sure we all get our moments where we have our doubts.. but we can decide to step out of the downwards and create something else for ourselves it is a matter of creating other thoughts…
Easy??? No… but determination is the keyword… the will to change.. the will to accept the gift of life in all its aspects and the abillity to see it is all about the journey we take from one life to the other.
