Local To Ontario and Experienced


It is with fortitude and trepidation that I approach. My 72nd year. On this planet. I will celebrate. My 71st birthday. On October the 11th. I have made many friends. And experienced many events. And I had boundless joy. And happiness. I am at peace. With myself. And My God. 

I am grateful. For many things. My friendships. I have people. Around me who. have brought to me. The wonders. Of God's creation. I am happy. 


Now. To give advice. To this broken world., It is one word. Love. love your children. And keep your friends close. Be wise. Stay close to the roots .of your faith,. A Christian faith,. That built this nation. Canada. Be happy. But be on your guard. Integrity. Is. A. Most. Precious. Word.

Paintings and War

The relationship between art and war is an interesting one. What do you see when you look at this picture, painting. Hopefully if I had done a good job the emotions you feel should help you transcend above the human condition. Is this not the purpose of art. Art brings meaning and purpose to life. War brings distraction, pain, and death., art on the other hand presents you with a picture and the beauty I've transcendence. not all art is about transcendence some examines the condition of life this painting although not complete is full boundaries and borders a thing that was not intentional. the war in the world today is about boundaries it should never have started in the first place there was plenty of warning.

why paint a picture? Why knit a scarf? why make a gourmet meal?These things are acts of creation. Why make a nuclear missile? Why make a secret code? Why build a robot that can fight a war for you? Unless We are willing to take control of the world in a fair and creative way we are doomed to stumble and perhaps even fall.  It's a nice to be in a part of the world that is peaceful and time can be spent in acts. of positive creation

We are not diplomats, so we place our trust and hope in the ones that are? the leaders of our world today
