PATIENCE

Learn the art of patience. Apply discipline to your thoughts when they become anxious over the outcome of a goal. Impatience breeds anxiety, fear, discouragement and failure. Patience creates confidence, decisiveness, and a rational outlook, which eventually leads to success.....~B.  Adams

A Reprint From Expatblog.com

Today I had a craving for some 'cul-cha'.  Sometimes I get homesick for my MOMA.  No...not my mother...although that happens from time to time,…

Conflict Of Interest

I recently participate in a show in Baltimore; "Art-scape"! It was a great show.  I had the opportunity to meet some great fellow artist , some who have been doing their thing for years.  I asked them do you paint what you feel or are you directing your work towards the commercial market?  One statement stood out in my head the entire weekend........."paint what the people want".

All Up In My Kool Aid and Don't Even Know the Flava'



Recently, a person wrote me asking how I handled racism in the South of France.  This person claimed they had lived here and found the people extremely racist to the point of driving him out of the country.  The writer claimed that they were East Asian and Caucasian.

 When I asked him to describe  his experiences, I never heard from him again.

He ran away.  Puff!
Numerous persons of color…all kinds…
