Painting. Acrylic.

“A Brand New Day”
Acrylic on canvas.
February 2020

I finished this painting about a month ago. So much seems to have changed since then, and this painting languishes at my studio without me these days. But I was thrilled to have painted it and look forward to visiting it soon.

In the meantime, hopefully we can all wake soon to brighter days.

Stay safe, humanity.

Good morning, good afternoon & good evening NH.

We manage anxiety each in our own way.

Sometimes I need to get away. Sometimes I need to connect with friends who really, really *get* anxiety. Sometimes I walk. Sometimes I take photographs along the way. Later, I can look back at the images and remind myself of what took my breath away but in a GOOD way.

Breathe. Now do it again. Repeat. This too shall pass.

Stay safe, humanity.

“Stay Safe, Humanity”

I have no words. Or too many. Either way, let me see, what to say for today: Be safe. Stay healthy. Wash your hands. Shower. Breathe. Breathe again. Keep breathing.

Irish Proverb: “May your troubles be less and your blessings be more. May nothing but happiness come through your door.”

(Did I get that right? I hope so.)

Stay safe, humanity.

Stand Still


When you are convinced that all the exits are blocked, either you take to believing in miracles or you stand still like the hummingbird.  The miracle is that the honey is always there, right under your nose, only you were too busy searching elsewhere to realize it.  The worst is not death but being blind, blind to the fact that everything about life is in the nature of the miraculous. – Henry Miller
