Hope is the anchor which holds
keeping me steady & strong
(it keeps me from screaming & running from this madmadworld.)
The poem above is a favorite of mine that I wrote in 2008. I made it into a painting and it has hung in my house since.
The tattoo on my wrist says Joy. I surround myself with bright colors and things that mean a great deal to me because I want to have a bright sanctuary so that when I brood, I have constant reminders of good things.
