life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass
it's about learning to dance in the rain!

                                               today is my oldest son David's birthday
                                  won't say how many years have gone by since his birth....
                                  won't post image of him as baby
                                  will remember the years,
                                  the moments we have shared

                                  will say how proud of him
                                 of the man he has grown into
                                 i am and i know his father would be

                                  growing up among a family of women,
                                   i raised a family of men
                                                       very very different energies

fish out of water

sun's returned
ground's rather saturated

and today
fish out of water
is the mindset

over the years, while in my booth,
i have drawn

this image began
a number of years ago
i can't count the number of hours spent working on it
 or the number of colored pencils that were used to create the shadings

i do admire 2d artists and the time it takes to create their work.....

Jason sent this image of Addy,
 looking out at the snow.
I think
 of all the images i treasure of this child,
this is possibly
my most favorite one.

I see
can approach the child
that I had been once
and the one
that is
still there
behind the
