At this time of year, we all get a little teary-eyed, or at least I do.
I think about all that has happened, the good and the bad, and I cherish each moment.
Without rain, we would never realize the beauty of the sunshine and all that the rain gives to us. It is indeed beautiful in its own way.
Without tempest, we would never really appreciate the calm, nor would be become stronger.
We are all time travellers, travellers in our own time. We can shape our destinies and influence the course of our travels.
But, as in all things, it is the journey that is most important, not the destination.
I wish you all journeys that fill your days with wonder, that fill your eyes with beauty and that fill your hearts with love.
I believe that we, as artists, are so lucky and so important. We view the world in very unique ways, and through our chosen art form, we can express the emotions that cannot be spoken for our languages have no words for them. We can let people around us see the world in ways they have never before seen it...................from the delicacy of a flower to the bonds that we as human beings have to those around us, and to our planet.
Through the power of our art, we have the opportunity to share, to enlighten, and even to alter perceptions.
TO ALL MY FELLOW ARTISTS, HAPPY JOURNEYS IN 2013 ! MAY ALL YOUR TRAVELS THROUGH TIME BE ALL YOU WANT THEM TO BE.
PEACE, LOVE AND HAPPINESS
