PEACE

Peace.
It does not mean to be in a place
Where there is no noise, trouble
Or hard work
It means to be in the midst of those things
And still be calm in your heart.

Happy Happy New Year Everyone!!

“New Year’s Day – Now is the accepted time to make your regular annual good resolutions. Next week you can begin paving hell with them as usual.” Mark Twain

At the end of the year I like to reflect on the people I’ve met the past year and contemplate the new one’s I’ll meet. I’ve encountered some wonderful people here at RedBubble and I’m hoping to meet more.

Thank you all for being so supportive of my efforts and sharing not only your gorgeous work but your heart and soul as well through your art.

Here’s hoping that 2012 is a peaceful prosperous one for all of the inhabitants on Planet Earth! Happy New Year Everyone!

Feeling Grateful!

I have so very much to be thankful and grateful for, my family and friends and that includes you out there. You Redbubble denizens who give support and an endless supply of beautiful art that not only enhances my view, but inspires me also. I’m really happy we’ve crossed paths. S

Dust Bowl

I wasn’t around in the 30’s when the Dust Bowl was rampant….but according to old timers it was bad. AND if yesterday was a glimpse into what could be—-oh boy seeing this dark cloud of red dirt rolling in was in fact a little scary. There was no major damage done, however, flying sand is nothing to sneeze at——- it’s really bad on the psyche. :-(

Due to the drought experts are indicating we may be experiencing more days like this; hopefully not a replay of the Dust Bowl Days! Rain, Rain, Rain…..anyone want to join me in a Rain Dance? grin

Art is.....

“Were I called on to define, very briefly, the term Art, I should call it ’the reproduction of what the Senses perceive in Nature through the veil of the Soul.”
Edgar Allan Poe

Doing and being who you are !

Said you are what you do
In order to Prevent becoming
What you’re busy not doing
And if you do do it truly
Then you arrive at it newly
Then in the end you are absolved
And the problem of heaven is solved

Ani Difranco, “Hat Shaped Hat”

Moving on......

For all of you who sent me words of concern in reference to my Dad; he passed away on August 18, 2011 surrounded by family and friends. He truly was a remarkable man with an undying spirit that sustained him to the very end.

I was so blessed to have had him in my life.
