For Joanie...she lighted the world--she delighted in the world. I learned so much about living from her and sometimes there are no words but the passion of feelings...the wordless presence of art... to express the beauty of someone and all they offer the universe. These days I hear some cynics say how can there be beauty in the world, how can you focus on the beauty of the world when there is much suffering? How can you not? There will be suffering --always-- and it is in the beauty that we find inspiration and our chance to relieve suffering. To lift each other. If we fail to see beauty, we fail.
Welcome to my journey, in art & life...
