Happy Holidays and A Prosperous New Year!

So here we are again! It’s been a tumultuous year on the political front, with unpopular politicians making equally unpopular polices, continuation of avoidable humanitarian catastrophes and increasing fears on the condition of our environment and our very existence.

On a personal front, I’ve lost close family & friends and had my fear share of life’s ups and downs. I remain thankful however of the opportunities I’ve received this year, the fact still I’m alive and the fact I’m able to write this entry! With this in mind, I remain positive and excited by what 2019 may bring. We can only be optimistic!

As we near the end of the year, I’d like to wish you and your loved ones the most enjoyable of holiday seasons. Moreover, I sincerely wish you all a happy, healthy and thoroughly rewarding 2019! Make it count because life isn’t a rehearsal!

Mr. President, your so-called ‘shithole’ countries make Miami great” — Repeating Islands

Here is another response to Trump’s recent barrage of racially-charged slurs by Fabiola Santiago (Miami Herald). Here are excerpts: Let me tell you, Mr. President, about those people you think come from “shithole” countries. They made Miami what it is today, a city like no other in the United States. You won’t defeat or degrade […]

I’m no longer surprised by what President Trump is alleged to have said but I found this article from Repeating Islands a worthy response.

The Very Best Wishes for 2018!

So we reach the end of another year. I have to say, this year has been full of surprises, opportunities, disappointments and upsets, particularly the passing of friends and  fellow creatives . On reflection, the last year has reminded me of how fortunate many of us are and that time waits for no one.  I can only wish that 2018 is a far fairer,  peaceful and rewarding year for all. Moreover, I wish you and yours the most enjoyable holiday season and a happy, healthy and truly prosperous 2018!

Life- Let’s Put it into Perspective

I start today in a reflective mood with a very heavy heart, knowing fellow artist Jon Daniel, who I featured on the page and my blog, has passed away. I didn’t know Jon very well, and met him by chance but his positively warm, personable and genuine energy was clear to see, not to mention his talent and appreciation of the arts. It is a sad loss but he will no doubt be remembered and appreciated, particularly by all who were fortunate to meet him.

His passing also reinforces something we all know and need to remember- life is short and precious so pursue your dreams, create lasting memories and live it well! Life certainly is for living and not just surviving.  Pursue your dreams and don’t put ambitions on hold. You’ve been given imagination for a reason so combine it with action and activity. Wishing you all a happy, healthy and enjoyable weekend. Make it count!
