Signs hang all over my home because WORDS are POWERFUL!
WORDS affirm us. WORDS give us hope. WORDS awaken us to truths.
My home is often described as whimsical which represents me: quirky, imaginative, creative, original and highly unusual. Signs hang all over my walls because I was born with an insatiable love affair with words. Even the original art I am drawn to includes words woven in the canvass - legible and illegible. My white basement walls are filled from ceiling to floor with inspired ideas and thoughts I felt compelled to write with a black pastel. They feed me as much as a ray of sunshine. And I need them the way I need air in order to breathe.
Here are some of the SIGNS:
- HUMANITY: If you planted hope today in any hopeless heart, if someone's burden was lighter because you did your part, if you caused a laugh that chased a tear away, if tonight your name is mentioned when someone kneels to pray, then your day was well spent.
