Artist's Description

“Welcome, O life! I go to encounter for the millionth time the reality of experience and to forge in the smithy of my soul the uncreated conscience of my race.” ~ James Joyce

“Nothing splendid was ever created in cold blood. Heat is required to forge anything. Every great accomplishment is the story of a flaming heart.” ~ Arnold H. Glasgow

“People are more inclined to be drawn in if their leader has a compelling vision. Great leaders help people get in touch with their own aspirations and then will help them forge those aspirations into a personal vision.” ~ John Kotter

Life is tough, but no matter how much you may have on your plate, there is Always someone who is having a harder time. We all stumble and trip as we move along our Lifepath, just as the clouds sometimes part unexpectedly in a hopeful rainbow. In my view, Life is a forge for our spirit selves where we are folded, pounded, thrust into glowing coals and blessedly cool water without any rhyme or reason that we can see. Yet, we are the only creatures that I know of who are born with the ability to look into the future and see a vision of what we would like to accomplish, or become.

My best advice? Don’t fight yourself! Don’t fear change! Be who you are now, so you may blossom into the wonderous being you were meant to become. Who knows what miracles you will participate in, what joys you may inspire? Remove the pebble from your shoe, and walk your path well… be the change you want to see most in the world. We can recreate the world with our thoughts… who do you think you are? Who do you want to become?

wishing you laughter
