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.

Three of My Favorite Contemporary Artists...

These are three of my favorite contemporary artists. I admire their talent, skill and devotion to their art. Their works are a result of pure passion. Featured are paintings and the links to the sites of Melissa Cooke, Alyssa Monks and Pamela Wilson. Yes, they also happen to be radiant and exceptionally beautiful women! That was pure coincidence. First and foremost, I see their energy, discipline and skill. They remind me of how much I have to learn . They inspire me to be better and to remember above all else, that it devotion to a greater purpose that matters most to me. They are artists in thought, in spirit and in action. Enjoy!
