Welcome!

My art and writing are two channels I use to express gratitude for all the goodness in my life.  Being creative requires me to step out of my comfort zone and explore new avenues.  When I write and paint from the heart, everything makes sense.  I am grateful for the opportunity to share my joy with you.

Now Are the Rough Things Smooth

Now are the rough things smooth, and the smooth things stand in flickering slats, facing the slow tarnish of sun-fall.  Summer is over, or nearly.  And therefore the green is not green anymore but yellow, beige, russet, rust; all the darknesses are beginning to settle in.  And therefore why pray to permanence, why not pray to impermanence, to change, to - whatever comes next.
