  • And thank you Lord, I am grateful for it! This decision of mine to flee society to paint and write and farm, sometimes feels like a cop out, a joke, I am a loser, not an artist, I've fucked it all up, ruined lives....

    And then, mercy enters my life in the form of electronic encouragement from a community of people, strangers. Who live and share and are brave enough to be human.

    Sometimes, dammit, that is just enough.

    Thank You.
