My Causes:
I believe in
I believe that we are here to be all that we can be the short time we are here on earth, to make a difference through acting on the vision we each have. (People get in trouble when they flounder and waste time w/o one). I believe in working to one's maximum potential through hard work and inner faith. I believe in being a kid and compassionate person and a good communicator by being a good listener.
How I would make this world a better place
When one has compassion for what someone else's experience is, it makes the world less lonely. So I would reach out to those who are in even more need than I am myself, by not being self-involved, but rather, helping someone else in the very way that that person most needs. I call this 'cultural exchange,' in that one gives of oneself which gives back in multiple ways never before experienced; it's a good thing, because goodness travels far and wide in new and unexpected ways. I work for a homeless shelter part-time, for example. When I show up, I expect to give in a certain way on my way there, but something else always comes up to which I find part of myself responding in an unexpected way. I end up going home knowing I made a difference in someone's life. I like to think, even, that one of my paintings could stop a war, but that is another subject, yet another very large part of my making this world be a better place. Each of my paintings represents a crystallized chunk of formal experience, as well as being very personal at the same time. My paintings are earthy, rock-like and weighty, and yet they have in them the rhythm of the sea. I am a nature painter; the nature "out there" coupled with my own internal landscape. My "inner" finds the equivalent "out there."
Who and what I'm looking for
kindness, compassion, creativity, imagination, mystery, active, inquiring, curious, intelligent, worldly person.
