More > paintings that led to a one-man art-show. Many paintings were based on photographs I had taken over the years focusing on the challenges we have faced as a family with multiple sclerosis, deafness and blindness.

Sometimes emotions are so strong they disrupt everything and poetry acts to contain the feelings. The issue is not getting in touch with the feelings, but trying to create meaning out of meaninglessness.< Less
