Break free of yourself for God, Break free of yourself for others, Break free of yourself for yourself, Leave the storm behind.
Always remember these things: The night sky is the wise sky. It reveals the infinite nature of the universe. Wisdom is echoed in some books, but not all. Books are conceived in finite minds. Wisdom isn't a gift reserved only for the old and experienced. Some of the wisest people I've known were children and some of the most foolish were old, though it is a gift everyone can and should seek throughout life.
This still life arrangement is symbolic of the elements in our universe. The sunflower represents the sun, the source of light and warmth for our world. The spheres represent the planets and the fabric the undulating rhythm of the seas.
The endless schedule of time! The burden of time! The promise of time! The anticipation and the dread of time! Time. The enemy and friend of all!
This painting was developed to honor the passing of a friend whose musical talent was appreciated by all who knew him. I believe as humans our enjoyment of making music as well as our appreciation of listening to music transcends our humanity and reaches deep into our spirits. It is a powerful tool that can affect our mood in many ways. It can brighten our day. It can inspire us. It can help us remember special moments in our lives.
Love One of the universal necessities, along with the food we eat, and the air we breathe, it sustains our spirits now and always. We give it. We take it. We need it.
Courage. Sometimes it means risking. Sometimes it means living. Sometimes it means dying. Sometimes it means trying. Sometimes it means changing. Sometimes it means imagining.
