When we least expect it, life sets us a challenge to test our courage and willingness to change; at such a moment, there is no point in pretending that nothing has happened or in saying that we are not ready. The challenge will not wait. Life does not look back. A week is more than enough time for us to decide whether or not to accept our destiny.”~ Paul Coelho

"Some Mad Hope..."
A young and vital child knows no limit to his own will, and it is the only reality to him. It is not that he wants at the outset to fight other wills, but that they simply do not exist for him. Like the artist, he goes forth to the work of creation, gloriously alone.

Our New Addition

Waiting to be named by Tia who lives in Florida, we have a new 12 week old German Shepard pup as a welcome addition to our family. She was generously given to us by a wonderful family who had a demanding schedule and wanted a good home for "Margot."...a beautiful name but of course my daughter and son are inspired by the ocean and beach so they are deciding upon a Hawaiian name of some sort. So far "Kona" is a consideration.
She has huge,oversized black velvet ears....the better to hear us with:) It should be interesting... but now I will be forced to clean my studio! Yikes! I don't think paint,screws,aluminum sheets and screening are good chew toys!Actually, until fully trained, I am afraid this pup won't venture near my territory. Our last furry friend, Bandit, a large Shepard, chose my easel to lay beneath when she passed away 18 months ago.She is greatly missed:( There is something magical about the relationship between dogs and people...like children they demand your attention but love you for providing the simple things....affection,attention,play,sustenance. My husband says...finally "someone" who will listen :)... thus...the big ears!
"Kona" will be cherished and later I'll share the story of her arrival...."pure serendipity!"
Update: the name remains "Kona."
