Left Behind in a Memory

The difference between false memories and true ones is the same as for jewels: it is always the false ones that look the most real, the most brilliant.” ~Salvador Dali (source)

Left Behind in a Memory

Memories are often a jump off point for creating a poem, lyric, or other piece of art. They can be enhanced, altered, enlarged, and explored. In fact, they are often only a representation of what we wish could be true. You might wonder why, I spend so much time rearranging and recreating a simple photograph. Just as we each have our own perception of the world, shaped by the past, present, and physiology. This is how I like to remind myself that this is my unique view of the world. Not reality, but my reality. ~ Bill Hendricks (Shadowmason)

Art is a collaboration between God and the artist, and the less the artist does the better.” ~ Andre Gide (source)

Traveling through the west

Art—It’s about
Exploring the Frontiers

I have always considered myself unfortunate because I don’t read as fast as some and not as smart as most but I thank God for the ability to see and interact with the world through my art. It has always been a path to my spirituality and source of my strength.

My mother use to say, “It’s not what you do on Christmas, birthdays, Mother’s Day or Father’s Day that counts, it is what you do all year-long that really matters.”

Happy Holidays to all my visitors and friends,
