I stop to paint my words. Miniatures are practical and intimate. I teach because I love it.
Mother Earth has endurance and capacity beyond all imagination. She is stressed, dejected, and humiliated just as we humans are bullied.
She teaches me her endurance and resilience. She teaches me compassion, and beauty.
