Prayers for Haiti

When everyone in the world realizes that we are all in One Big Huge TEAM where we all get behind one another and focus on us all WINNING!

What a wold this can be!

Haiti is actually pulling us in that direction, and I am so honored and proud to be an American and to be helping other in this world to survive this disaster!

Isn't it amazing that people just "walk" into your life -- then they are there and you wonder how did I live without them -- they are your "friends".  They love you for who you are and they are there for you when you need them the most.   I treasure my friends, my sisters, and my family -- I know that they love me even when I have forgotten to love myself.

Each day I remind myself to smile as I walk into a store, and especially while driving my car -- we all can look a little too serious!!!  Now, I just smile, knowing that my life is great, filled with great friends and family and that I am so blessed to be a painter -- and I am so very grateful.

Are you smiling?

Finding Myself

As each day of the new year starts, I am grateful for all of the gifts that I have,  I feel as if I have crawled out from under the covers to embrace a new Life!  Yes, a new beginning -- a better year - the best year ever!  This time I mean it -- if I am not experiencing and expressing Joy -- then I am the fool and the joke is on me!  You don't get extra points at the end of your life for being grumpy, whiney or just plain lethargic!  Finding the joy in my life and in my paintings is being "Me" in the moment and relaxing and enjoying all of the gifts that God has given me.

I am so blessed!  Thank you universe.

Music fills my soul --it's magic makes my heart dance.  I melt to the sounds that make me smile from within.  The melodies of life, the sounds of laughter and joy -- these are the keys to my heart and each note is a brushstroke on my canvas that has its own song to sing!

I have painted the most incredible paintings to Andrea Bocelli -- his voice resonates with my soul and the paint slides across the canvas.

Now I am finding new music to paint to reflect the new "Me" in my work.

True Love

True Love is turning 60, looking in the mirror -- and still loving yourself for exactly who you are!

I plan on being extraordinary and having FUN doing it!!!!

How about you?
