I’m sure if you ponder you will find the answers, Jim Reeves.

The artwork itself is inspiring. I’m curious to know where it’s located as in- on a house, apartment building or public space?

Green grass and blooming flowers, my heart beat and each breath I take, the ability to feel creative- that’s what brings me joy.

Some days are a struggle and I want to give up. I want to cave and I feel as if the strongest parts of me chip away. If someone where to lend a listening ear or simply acknowledge me- that’s what I need help with.

I love my family, and friends and cats, and people who give free hugs or lead by example with random acts of kindness. I love writers, artists and skaters. I love the people that pass me on the street and say good morning.

I dream of a world of selflessness. A world where we learn, grow, experience and accept one another. A world without hate, terrorism and cruelty. A world where each individual can go to bed at night and feel good about themselves. I dream of a world in unity.
