About me

This is the real secret of life — to be completely engaged with what you are doing in the here and now. And instead of calling it work, realise it is play. The only thing that is ultimately real about your journey is the step that you are taking at this moment. That’s all there ever is. I’m here to tell you that the path to peace is right there, when you want to get away. When you are present, you can allow the mind to be as it is without getting entangled in it. If you miss the present moment, you miss your appointment with life. That is very serious!

Valentine roses

 Black ink sketch with Coffee (Nescafé instant, very strong) plus Cadmium Red and a mix of greens

Valentine’s Day reminds me 
of the smile I smile
every time I think of you, 
the emotional lift I feel 
at the sound of your name. 

Valentine’s Day reminds me 
of the strength and comfort I get 
from knowing 
there are people like you in my life. 
Everything good about Valentine’s Day 
reminds me of you. 
Happy Valentine’s Day!

  1. Those are gorgeous! I love the colors you used... not the traditional ruby red, but more expressive, evocative hues. Very nice!

    1. Thanks everso much Katherine! The hues happen as a result of painting over the coffee, it definitely changes colours into some beautiful tones!
