Joy & Friendship

It is not joy that makes us grateful; it is gratitude that makes us joyful.
--Brother David Steindl-Rast

This weekend, a friend of mine had a solo show at the Art 629 Gallery in Asbury Park, NJ. It had a been a long year for her. This year had seen the one year anniversary of her father's passing, the passing of her cats, and general life stuff. All these obstacles  being said, she demonstrated the highest level of resilience, inner peace and gratitude that I have ever witnessed. (Maybe it is all the yoga). Her opening event was wonderful and I was thrilled to have been there. Here is a link: JC Johnson.

  2. Loved Jean's page! Her colors are so deep and soulful. Thanks for sharing! Aren't friends the best? Don't know what I'd do without my wonderful friends...and they are all creative in some way. Viva the differences!
