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.

                 In order to proceed with my graduate studies at Savannah College of Art and Design I had to pass the initial review.  Trucking two dozen of my most recent works in a cargo van with my suite mate from Connecticut, Jessica, I presented my art before a panel of three professors. It was exhausting but valuable. The process forced me to focus and to thoughtfully regard the relevance of my work.I passed, with the help of very dear friends who helped hang, measure and level work. My summer studies will bring even greater change. I was encouraged to break rules , paint the darkness and quiet the voices that promote comfort, acceptance and safety. Shhhh!!!!" Faint not!" (note to self)
