Painting – Autumn Flowers.

For quite a few days and nights the air was heavy with the smell of burning wood. Many of the hills and reserves were burning, and still are. There are 426 fires active in my state as of today. For weeks our temperatures soared well over 114 degrees, and I wondered how the firefighters could physically survive it. Each morning the fading moon was hot-pink or red from the smoke. And it is devastatingly worse for our neighboring states.

Yet through all of this, the untouched areas of nature are carrying on, painting a picture of beauty in its elegant grace.
Nature, our greatest treasure and teacher. I marvel at it all…and I am humbled.

We have known about global warming since the 1960’s. Yes. I hope all of those that didn’t believe in global warming now “get it.”
The planet doesn’t need us. We are its guests, we were meant to be the guardians of this gift.
I hope we have a new and intelligent government that places the earth as a top priority, finally.

A government that selflessly serves and represents the Greater Good of All.
We the people, can not do it alone.
It requires “We the Nation.”
We the world.

Peace and prosperity for all.

– Thank you

Illustration – Little Light Trails Everywhere.

For the Givers of Light.

Have you ever noticed the individuals that quietly, and consistently spread light wherever they go?
I created this illustration as an acknowledgement, and a thank you to those that offer a gentle, authentic light to all of life around them.
They are subtle, always listening, and compassionate. Rather than give advise, they ask questions, leading others along the way to discover their own best solutions. Givers of Light live in each moment completely. They are devoted to the light in others, to either celebrate or add their own, to illuminate the way out of despair and confusion. They hold hands with greater good of the universe, and it beats their heart. They have the greatest laugh that can ignite your own in a moment.

Their patience and grace may seem effortless, but is hard won through personal trials and experience. They are courageous and gentle in their courage. They are authentic. They command no attention or approval, while fulfilling a valuable service to all others.
I thank and honor each quiet, unseen Giver of Light, for you lead the way for many out of fear, anger and ignorance. You are a constant set of twinkle lights all over the planet.
You are the greatest sense of the word “warrior.”

– I see you, and I Thank you all.
