.... Wish I could sing and dance really, really well, but I can't and do it anyway.
If you live long enough, you will make mistakes. Learn from them, Each moment is a new opportunity to make a difference. We are all searching for the same basic things. It is intrinsic to human nature to create, to love, to connect. Fear is our enemy. The person behind the counter when you pay for your cup of coffee, is the same as you. Look them in the eye until you see that they see you and then smile, wish them a good day.
The world can only change for the better if we each recognize the humanity,equality, and uniqueness in one another. Art is a universal language ; humans have been expressing themselves for millenia. Digital art is amazing, but for me, I choose the marks made with my hands. A brush loaded with a color I have mixed on my palette, an arc of a stroke across canvas, is as unique as a snowflake. It is sensual and evocative of a loved one's caress. If we really SEE who or what is before us, then apathy becomes impossible.
