Nobody said life would be easy. Time heals all wounds....one second, one minute, one hour, one day at a time. I think about most of my heroes, Jim Morrison, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Sid Vicious, and even Vincent. They didn't have the patience or stamina for healing and wisdom. They just kept cutting until they bled out. I look as this work and think of rungs on a ladder or life lines. Was this a dark, totally depressed period in my life? To the contrary, this was a hyper-creative time in a beautiful environment. It was a time of vigorous exercise and a rich, fresh diet. We break our own hearts and forge them back together. It gives life journey a bit of character.
