Every year for Daz’s birthday, I try to make something original that expresses the way he makes me feel. I made this little book for him, but I want to share it with everyone.
Art has become the catalyst for me – whether it is drawing or painting or writing or cooking or singing. It is my WD40 AND my duct tape. It smooths the edges and keeps us together. I have typed the wordss out under each picture, Please enjoy!
Art: noun, The expression or application of human creative skill and imagination, typically in a visual form such as painting or sculpture, producing works to be appreciated primarily for their beauty or emotional power. But what if ART is more than what we make? What if ART is what we are? What if WE are the medium – pulled together in a cohesive torrent of creative LOVE?
ART brings us together in a masterpiece of the human tapestry. Our history in every language. Our skin in every color. Our truth in every version. Our story whether small or epic.
Our perspective at every angle. Our memories at every age. Our love in every expression.
We see ourselves woven and folded and part of beauty and the living tableau of ART. We see with our eyes and mind and heart. We feel color. We hear texture.
ART makes beauty and life and love and home. ART makes FAMILY. Thank You for being my family, my partner and helping me create this life everyday!

I am happy to be introducing a new voluntary payment system for Words of a Dandelion, Payments are at the discretion of the reader and support my written works, art, poetry and music. The same content is available to all - because the purpose of my work is to help everyone feel connected. I will not withhold content based on ability to pay. I offer a positive perspective and unique view of an adult female who has spent the last 50 years navigating the world with Asperger's Syndrome. Despite any circumstance, I endeavor to find the hope and love within the moment. I am in the process of creating a memoir and building a future full of possibility for my son. The dollars help toward creating art, writing, photography and original artwork. You can use your dollars to vote on which blog posts you like AND/OR you can request me to write a poem or blog about a favorite topic.
