Far off horizons


As some of you know my mom has been fighting cancer for 3 years. Well she finally left her cancer filled body and moved on leaving just a shell of what was once a very spirited woman. It seems silly to say it on a blog, where pages are changed daily. And most will probably never read it. But just the same I feel I have to say it.

I am so sorry Brian. It is a very difficult thing, to lose your Mom. Of course you needed to say it on your blog since it is all you can think about right now. My healing thoughts are with you. I am certain that she was very proud to have a son like you.She will watch your next show in spirit. Hugs, Loriann

Oh, Brian. I was here and I read it. I'm so sad for you and your dad and all of the people your mom touched.

You and all that you are (like your art) are some of the best things she ever produced. Her love lives in every single one of your paintings. Forever.

My heartfelt sympathy to you on the loss of your mom. She must have been a very special person.

Brian, I know how much this hurts, my thoughts are with you. This is so hard, it's beyond words.

P.S. I'm glad you said it on your blog. I really like how we are like one big community of art blogger friends who support each other in myriad ways, including emotionally for events in our personal, non-art lives.

Hello Brian…I have no idea what to say to someone who’s lost a loved one…perhaps you’re different than I am but I guess I never considered how I would be affected when I first lost my mother 6 years ago at the age of 52, then my father 3 years ago. Prior to that I had lived a charmed life…good at and or lucky at just about everything…never stopping to consider if I was happy or not I just was….

Now….divorced for 1.5 years; estranged from my grown daughter; and living a life I’ve never known….people say I changed but for the life of me I can’t ‘see it’…..

Perhaps I should say, please ‘take caution’….
