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.

Prayer For A 5th and Final Game

My son Robert is a passionate sports fan:)He is the kind of empathetic spectator that yells at the television monitor as though the players, coaches, umps and crowds can hear, and possibly respond, to his cries, cheers,applause or even worse, his scathing admonitions:)I wish they could see him when he dances:) So please, please Yankees, make tonight's 2009 World Series game, the 5th and final... a Yankees win, so that I can live peacefully with my son:) Luckily last night's victory, distracted him from the pain of the Green Bay Packer's loss, his favorite football team.

Here is an image I created for Robert 3 years ago when I first resumed painting.It is of his glove and Yankees jersey. The other is a recent image of my nephew Jordan, that I am painting for my brother, David. David is another die hard fan.

I have a feeling A. Rod, Jeter, Rivera and team mates have greater motivation for winning other than keeping Robert and David happy, but every little plea or invocation on the Yankees behalf can't hurt:) The Yankees are art in motion this year. Go Yankees!
