When I hurt someone... unintentionally ... but because of the choices I made,
and I'm really sorry, and I apologize profusely, and I feel deep regret,
it still doesn't make the other person feel any better.

What is regret?  What is forgiveness?  What is redemption?

I have to remind myself "forgive me my trespasses as I forgive those who trespass against me."
And the other important quote, "Judge not, lest ye be judged."

It's a hard sun

It is bright and it shines a hard light.   And it can blind you if you look right at it.

What is true?

There is more than one side to any story.  There is probably even more than two sides to every story. 

But truth is truth.  And there must be at least one person who KNOWS.

That person isn't me... I only know one side.  My side.  But you - YOU know, don't you? And now, you can live with it.

You must be uneasy whenever the hard light shines in your eyes.

Starting now.  I'm in bed already.  I've been looking backwards a lot through old posts and old photos and old thoughts. 

Right now, it's pretty warm.  I can hear the tv on downstairs and the sound of the rain in the gutters, not exactly a heavy rain, but it's there.  I can hear a vague murmur of conversation. 

Right now, I see my messy room in the dim glow of the lamp that was my grandmothers, when I was little it was in her bedroom, and now it is in my bedroom.  Even with one missing piece of glass and one cracked piece of glass in the shade, it is one of my most prized possessions. 

Right now, only the tip of my fingers on my right hand are numb, and really, nothing much hurts. So that's a good night, because it isn't always like that right now.

I've looked back a way, and found that a lot more time has actually passed than I feel like has passed. 

Time passed, and was never seen again.

It's time to restart Now.

...and then they were never seen again.

Sue and Frank's Art Gallery | Paintings & Prints | ArtPal

I've got a new thing going... so I figured I'd put it up here...

One of my new years goals/resolutions/whatever was to put up some paintings on a web site to sell.  I am going with the quote that "you miss 100% of the chances you don't take" with this... and even though I am not overly confident yet, I wanted to take a chance. 

Hey, what makes someone an artist?  It's all about creating the art.  So yes, I'm an artist, because I'm creating all of this art. What makes it "ART"?  I think that's totally in the eye of the beholder, right?   But now I have all of these paintings and nowhere to hang them.  And the next step in the whole ARTIST process would be to sell some of these pieces.  I have already sold some art, but mostly I haven't been doing much to promote it.  So this is my attempt to promote.

If you want to see my paintings, go to this link:

I hope you see something you like!  They are creating prints based on the paintings that I have done.  You can order pretty inexpensive prints, or you can go totally crazy with expensive printed canvases that are framed and everything... I haven't even ordered anything myself yet, so I still need to see what kind of quality it is.  But I hope it works out - it is really exciting, even if nothing happens with it!
