James is a Navy Vet who Started out doodling on paper and it became art from there. We will hear more from James next week.
“Different form of communication from me to the artwork and the artwork to me”
A flower struggles to show us hopes, dreams, promises and beauty,
A person struggles for hopes, dreams, promises and beauty,
When a person reaches their darkest hour, and sees no tomorrow,
When a person life’s burdens bends them down, and they are ready to quit;
If they see a flower, and remember their own hopes, dreams, promises and beauty,
They may pick up their burdens, which are now lighter, and walk into tomorrow,
Where there awaits them, their own hopes, dreams, promises and beauty.

People only remember you before you went into the service.
So, nobody realizes that there is a need to get to know the new you.
