one more day


Love is our true destiny.
We do not find the meaning of life by ourselves alone, we find it with another.
Thomas Merton

This bouquet was given to me after a wedding rehearsal dinner. Isn't young love grand?

Then I got to thinking of other recent events celebrating love like my mother's birthday or the love for a friend who was taken away from us too soon or another friend's love for his family who lived a full and rewarding life - to whom no one was a stranger in his presence.

How powerful for Love to forever pulse within, thereby gracing us with more love to share with others.

Lila & Friends

You think dogs will not be in heaven? I tell you, they will be there long before any of us.

Here's Miss Lila. She's the companion piece to brother Liam whom I posted earlier - two commissions inspired by a Divine Canines' silent auction.
