The unapologetic, raw, unedited interpretation of living life. Each of us is the artist of our own life, constantly remolding, reworking, and roughing out the details and applying what we've learned to the changing canvas. There are no do-overs, no take backs...just rough cuts that release what lies inside us.

I saw the angel in stone and I carved until I set him free. - Michelangelo

Ode to the Human Spirit

The human spirit is fascinating to me:

It is flexible enough to undergo enormous amounts of pressure and weight, yet it doesn't break under the stress...
It is strong enough to push forward through adversity and support the burden for others, yet sensitive enough to hear the whimper of a child's heart...

It does not cave.
It does not falter.
It grows.
It lives.
It breathes.
It laughs.
It weeps.
It feels.
It creates.
It heals itself and within those wounds, makes room for humility and faith beyond measure...
