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.

  1. Looks like a very exciting time, enjoy!

  2. Joanne, it will be especially fun because my daughter is a sophmore at MSU. There's nothing like being embarrassed by your mother:) She is actually very proud and a great supporter of mine. She has an artist's eye and honestly and constructively critiques most of my work.I'll miss her because soon she will be leaving to study abroad.I'll have to rely on my own eyes soon! Thanks again Joanne!Hope you are well.
