Every artist dips his brush in his own soul, and paints his own nature into his pictures.

               Henry Ward Beecher

I am lost inside my art. With every brush stroke, I am carried farther away from the troubles that inhabit my brain. I breath in the smell of the paint and see the whiteness of my canvas transform from something empty and dull into a world of color and delight. Painting quiets the noise in my head.

We are what we pretend to be, so we must be careful what we pretend to be.

                                                                                                              Kurt VonnegutMother Night


Wise words, my friends. Very wise words.

“When life is hard, you have to change.”

Wise words sang by a man who could not change. Knowing what needs to be done is not the same as doing it.

One Day March 28, 2012

when will you learn

that words spoken cannot be snatched back

once the sounds erupt from your angry lips

they hang, suspended in the chilly air

finding their target deep in my heart

later when you hold me and say you are sorry

when you claim you love me more than life

the words are still there

burrowing deeper and deeper, making a hole in my heart

I try to forget but the hateful words are still there

when will you learn

that one day the hole will grow too large

one day your words cannot harm me

one day I will be gone.
