If I Had Wings

IF I HAD WINGS – 21X36 – ACRYLIC ON BOARD My concept of “old” was much different when I was 12. I remember hearing about a college student who was killed in a car accident.   He was 28 yrs. old.  My thought, at that time, was at least he had lived a long time and it wasn’t […]

Conversation is at the top of my favorite things list. My Dad –  and later my sister, Kit – taught me the joy and art of what a conversation is when in its best form. I love turning ideas over. I love being honest with another person. I love trusting another’s intellect and their heart […]

An Uncensored Thought

Now.  Tonight.   I want to run away.  I want to sell everything I own, and go as far as I can from this moment.  From this time.  I know that is melodramatic, but that is how I am feeling right now. It isn’t even that the everyday realities are so painful.  Nor that they are […]
