Artist's Description

………………………………………………………………………….I have a color version of this pic taken back in May 2007—but I love it so much I thought I’d do a B and W version.

Also…here’s a poem I wrote a while back that seemed to go with it:

What Matters In Life

Feeling the fresh wind swoosh across my face
Walking in a brisk, non-swift pace
Hearing birds chirp and wildly flutter
Touching textures smooth, soft as butter
Reading a story of hope, laughter or joy
Watching a child riding a scooter—his toy
Sensing the smell of baked goods with coffee
Listening to leaves rustle atop the oak tree
Seeing a foreign tourist in couture style
Speaking a new accent for a short while
Waking up each morning to see the sun shine
Sharing a humorous joke to see a face line
Remembering a moment with someone gone ‘bye’
Running on the beach, squinting an eye
Musing to music for words to live by
Giving a gift that makes another cry
Living for happiness at every moment in time
Wining, dining and hearing bells chime
Feeling the kiss & embrace from your love
Realizing the simple beauty of a white dove.
Michael J Armijo

PS-I just remembered when my mom passed away on Jan. 24, 2000 I thought to myself “NOTHING MATTERS”…I think that was one of the reasons I wrote this poem.
