    Hi. There is another thread asking if any of us draw or paint, but it does not really outright ask for posts as instances of this. So, I am presenting this Thread where folks may feel free to share some of what they do with lines, colors and words ;) .

    Hi, thank you that is a wonderful idea : ) I always enjoy the work of others, so yes, please share (I'm below average in painting, I leave that up to my husband and daughter instead who are both great at it, but never seem to think so themselves).

    Thanks for sharing, Jaimie. ( Your middle name isn't Lynn is it? I know two 'Jamie Lynns' : ) Here's a painting of the lady who sells vegetables around here:
    Thanks a lot, Cloud! I made that in about 1969- it's my brother back then. They put it into our high school yearbook.

    Hoping to encourage further sharing here, this time with words, I will enter a little poem I wrote one night as an alternative to suicide, way back in my Fine Arts school, 1970. It is me talking myself out of suicide:

    You say you've paid the price of life
    And find it incomplete;
    You say you'd like to take it back:
    Well, show me your receipt.

    Thanks that picture is also very good, it does not only look good but the emotion is really captured in it : ) No, my real name is not Jamie Lynn, just Jaimie will do :)

    Thanks Jaimie! I don't think I could handle a third Jaimie Lynn! ;) One is the daughter of my (departed) wife and one is the daughter of a third grade 3 friend who was my very first date in the late 1950's.

    in every moment i'm seeking opportunity
    to exist outside myself
    from worry over an uncertain future
    or fear from a long lost past
    breath is my greatest drug
    to be here and now
    "there is no trial that does not reveal a great truth."

    I am a fan of William Blake and one phrase from Songs of Innocence stuck with me:
    I am you and you are me
    Mutual love is divine.

    for a moment

    come with me
    to a place nobody sees
    but everyone knows
    where you lay looking out towards the sun
    through the leaves of the tree's, alone
    a gentle breeze and a hallowed space
    it's the perfect embrace
    but you, you're left longing, hoping
    wanting someone who can taste the way i've made you feel
    here in this space with no names
    and so many faces race through your mind
    those hearts who've sparked this, a twinkling in time
    come now, be still, breathe
    is it sublime? it it surreal? but perfectly whole
    dissolution and infinite bliss as i gently press
    upon your sun kissed lips, caress your body and spine
    until there's no body left
    but this gentle breeze
    the sound of these leaves
    you and i, always, drifting
    with nothing to say
    left with a heart of knowing
