just had an epiphany somewhere in-between and around listening to  all the incarnations of music  local disks, reading through some older friend’s poetry, delving my eyes onto my walls that are packed with local artwork, much of what is just on loan from artists, not picking up their works. so I get to enjoy them a little longer), and my mind went to a very peaceful place. .I thought this. Look at all this beauty I have surrounded myself with. Then I thought of what negativity the world is throwing out right now.. Much more than that, the un-kindness ( are we this shallow and weak and mean. really.. ?) I for one.. am not… I will not allow myself to follow suit….. ( down to wherever.)….. thank you to all the creatives that have packed “love” in my direction, through their artistic endeavors… to form me, to prepare me, to teach me always… there is more to celebrate when self is shared. Love a local and their creations when at all possible!. These are your angels set here to nurture your spirit..(We have so many here) . it’s not just another CD,or some paint on a canvas or words in a row . .. it is someone’s heart digitized, soaked in, pushed across.. … and this is something to be celebrated not be-rated… all these things sight,and sounds, are your tools to use and ingest to become kinder to ourselves first then to each other.
