 Small Sailboat Wears Titanic Mural

"My dream is to 
be on my boat. 
Or on an island. Or in 
my house in the country. 
That's my dream. "
      Cameron Mackintosh

“I became an artist because 
I wanted to be an active 
participant in the 
conversation about art.”

"Oh the wild joys of living! 
. . . the cool silver shock of the 
plunge in a pool's living waters."
              Robert Browning

The only real tonic
for life's struggles
& sorrows
is kindness-

Kindness is the perfect gift isn't it? And requires no wrapping. And one size fits all.

You pretty much lived the dream for so many years in Hawaii. Now a landlubber by the water, your mission remains the same: to provide inspiration and kindness to those who come into your orbit. Thanks for contributing to this week's Monday Mural.
