The northern Gulf Coast is known for its fine, sugar-white sand. After a strong storm, it's left perfectly smooth, as though no one has ever set foot. As I had done countless times, I headed for the National Seashore after days of wind and rain.
As the last of the day’s light faded, I focused on the mesmerizing shapes and the subtle gradation of color within the sunlit sand of the dunes. The clearly defined shadows formed at sunset created a surrealistic scene.
In this painting, I was able to capture the otherworldly, which I witnessed in that brief moment. Returning to the same stretch of beach years later, the dune was gone. May we always be mindful that the beauty — part of our lives now — may be gone tomorrow.
Learning to Listen
I am learning to listen
To my God, to my Friend,
To the angels whose guidance
Seems never to end.
Invisible, yet present
They search and draw near,
Beings both light and dark
Wait for my willing ear.
With ease my mind will drift away.
The forces of darkness will have their say.
A lax mind I must train to focus on light
And the angels reenter, exerting their might.
