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.



What is it about October that just makes me feel all is well?  Could it be the cool, brisk days, the earlier sunsets, the burst of color across the trees?  I am not sure; all I know is that October is my favorite month of the year.  

In celebration of October here are some of my five favorite autumn quotes:
