Auf Wiedersehen


This has been a hard decision for me to make. I've been blogging here since 2008, and after many stops and starts and changes in direction, I've finally decided to permanently delete all but the last two posts on this blog. It was fun and fulfilling at times, and I truly treasure the connections I've made here over the years.  My thanks to all who have stopped by, especially to those who have taken the time to comment and interact.  I really enjoyed meeting you all!

For the the foreseeable future, I'll still be on Tumblr and Pinterest and Facebook.  And I'd love to see you there.

Auf Wiedersehen - good-bye until we see each other again!

yes, this


When I saw this over the weekend, I knew.  I knew that this is exactly what I've been feeling for quite a while.

she dreams of a kinder World

"she dreams of a kinder World"
20"x20"

I think she's finished!  She was a joy to create, and I think it shows. 

All year I've been thinking about how I dream of a kinder world, so sharing this painting here is almost like putting my heart on display.

"You cannot do a kindness too soon,
for you never know 
how soon it will be too late."
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson 

Kindness and a deep need for change are two of the things which have been on my mind a great deal lately.

"You are never too old
to set another goal
or to dream a new dream."
~ C. S. Lewis
