Life's Special Moments...

Thinking about you with love and joy
Lillian May Krahenbuhl...
an angel in heaven for seven years today.
"I'll be seeing you
In all the old familiar places
That this heart of mine embraces
All day and through.
In that small cafe
The park across the way
The children's carousel
The chestnut trees, the wishing well...
I'll be seeing you
In every lovely summer's day
In everything that's light and gay
I'll always think of you that way...
I'll find you in the morning sun
And when the night is new
I'll be looking at the moon
But I'll be seeing you."

"I'll be Seeing You"
Lyrics by: 
Brian Andrew Leisner & Hugh Thomas Morgan

A Special Birthday Remembrance...

 ...of a beautiful, love filled soul:
Aunt Gretchen...
on this day,
may you continue to joyfully fly with the angels,
brightening our hearts,
landing softly on the shoulders of those you love...
comforting and guiding us
along our way.
We miss you greatly.
"May God grant you always...
A sunbeam to warm you, a moonbeam to charm you,
a sheltering Angel so nothing can harm you.
Laughter to cheer you.
Faithful friends near you.
whenever you pray,
Heaven to hear you."
~Irish Blessing

With Forward Focus...

...I present here
my driving forces for 2014...
exploding like a cosmic blossom from my heart...
colorful, determined, and strong:
That should just about cover it.

For Joyce...

"When you get to the end of all the light
you know,
and it's time to step into the darkness of the unknown,
is knowing that one of two things will happen:
Either you will be given something
solid to stand on,
you will be taught how to fly."
~Edward Teller

I Need to Go To Rehab... take care of this week long (ARTzona withdrawal)
MIGRAINE I have been having!!!
I really miss
all my artistic sisters
and all that wonderful 24/7 addictive art fun we had.
Things are artfully quiet these days.
I think my migraine felt the void and hopped right in!
I cannot really blame ARTzona for my discomfort...
although my Muse wouldn't agree.
my migraine situation is
definitely a very, very fierce reality...and
I felt just like I look in my sketch above...all week.
thanks to Imitrix, the pain seems to be easing
a bit...good news.
I am certainly glad I am not a die hard Denver Bronco fan
as I don't think my brain would
bounce back to normal...

"We must embrace pain and burn it as fuel for our journey."

"Hmmm, I'm not too sure of that, Kenjii..."
