“Love is our destiny. We do not find the meaning of life alone, but rather with another.” Thomas Merton From the moment of our birth, these are the waters we sail. The world has lost its clear definition of Love. So we are on a quest, seeking that which we no longer understand, often thinking […]
Honey, I always thought you were wiser than I. Now I know you are just like me. Sometimes you know things…mostly you guess. My journey brought me straight into your path. You were shelter from the storm. Though nearly everything else has changed, one thing clearly has not. In this moment. You. Still. Hang the […]
If this moment were music, it would be a symphony. Music so filled with gratitude that joy overtakes the notes. Takes them captive, dances in little whirlwinds. Coming together then moving apart. Rejoicing, rejoicing, again and again.
You’ve been drinking the same water for years. It tastes fine…. Until one day, you are handed a glass of pure, crystal clear water. You sip. This is amazing! Unbelievable! You wonder what you’ve been drinking all these years. Was it even water? So it is with love. When you experience a love that penetrates […]
My name is Patience. I have, for most of my life, consciously and unconsciously been looking for someone whose real name is True. When I was very young, I spoke with him continuously.

Making a living in the art world has been quite a journey. In my early years of painting, there was only one motivation in me to do art: Joy. Already an adult before touching a canvas with paint and brush, the surprise of my new found skill was more magical than it would have been […]
We are in the process of learning how to live in Love. That’s what I want! After class on Wednesday, we usually have lunch together. After we ate, this past week, we talked for over an hour. Patsy asked each of us what we know to be our purpose in life. I answered as well […]
Art is so cool! It gets inside you and rearranges your furniture. I like how music lifts you – makes you lighter, makes you feel something new. This week, I am listening to Doak Turner’s song, “Dancin’ in the Kitchen” over and over. Doak seems to be a serious-minded man, but if you look closely, […]
Do not resist what is. That would make you very unhappy in the long run. It will clench your gut and close your heart off from understanding. From experiencing True/Love (takes Patience). Do not demand guarantees from the future. You will be healthier if you learn to flow seamlessly, from one moment into the next.
