"Often times we’re so busy “we can’t see the forest for the trees”. Every once in a while we get a clear picture of what’s really there and what’s going on, or at least we think we do.

Sometimes, obviously less today than it used to be, people would look at things differently and discuss it, and work it out. They would respect each other enough to try to understand the other person’s position and make those necessary changes or allow the other person their position.

I went to the beach very early this morning to enjoy the ocean, sand, air, and spend some time thinking and praying. I man and two kids were there. He was packing up his truck as they were collecting the last clam shells, hermit crabs and bags of sand souvenirs before they attempted to beat the horrific Cape Cod Saturday traffic. He started to unfold his story of being there with his daughter and her friend and his mother. When I asked about his wife, his answer was he wants no part of that.

Unlike the past, men’s and women’s commitments are traded in or trashed for new ones, new feelings or “greener grass”. The hurtful feelings and the heartaches are just below the surface and they don’t go away. Any thoughts that the kids will not be just fine don’t enter the head. The kids will be O.K is always the answer. Unfortunately, you see the kids turn from what they were taught, stop believing in life as a struggle; accept life as a throw away, me only, a new feelings way, and clearly always travel the less painful path.

Happy as he was with the day and the time he had experienced on Cape Cod with his vacation, this man was struggling with the economy, our politicians, the rampant greed, relationships and security.

Sometimes these things are similar to the paintings which I have chosen. To find something beautiful you may have to spend time and look carefully. You may have to be a little quiet and not just talk all the time, but listen. They may not be just about you. You may also want to be still and look carefully as there is truly something beautiful before you. All it takes is a true commitment.

We’ll talk more of these things soon and thank you…."

“Dreams and life often don’t cross paths except in the mind
Most of us don’t care about another and we’re not very kind
As long as I go on with my life and me, I’ll be fine thank you
Doesn’t matter who you are with or what you are about to do
No thought of who rules the universe to whom you’ll give reply
Only, live and let live life to the fullest because we all will die!”

“Find paintings that remind you of what you promised. It won’t change and as you do, it will call you back to what you committed to. Have a great week!”

"Find my paintings, or may my paint-tings find you!"
