In LIKE LITTER IN THE WIND (my new novel - FREE SAMPLE @ 'artofmonteque' link below) a character says: “Just once I’d like some lively intelligentsia that rubs my cranium with a mouthful of... lovely.” Amen.

SHOUT OUT to all Real Artists who strive & fight to conceive & give birth to Truth, to Light, to Dreams, to Life that leaps & breathes, pounds & pings, fritzes, freaks, fidgets, fumbles, sighs & SCREAMS. My heart skips beats for people with sparks beneath their fingertips & these exceptional few who start riots, ignite fires & Fine Art when they sing. Shout out to YOU who have always inspired me, whether struggling valiantly in the dark, dank shadows of obscurity or dancing in the gold-hued light of acclaim, for without the shimmering of your reflective souls, the conjuring of your gifts & invaluable contributions, this world would be so much dimmer, sadder, less informed & a far less beautiful place.

That's it. That's all. Thanks for visiting.

One Love.
