The last two weeks have been rather eventful, and unfortunately, not in a good way. Sometimes life feels like a domino effect, one bad thing happens and then a downward sort of spiral is created. My Mom was telling me that she believes the oil spill has created a dark tragedy that seems to be spilling and spreading into everyone's life. If you believe that we are all connected as I do, then it does feel as though that is possible. That horrible event aside, I know things will right themselves and life is already moving in a more positive direction around here. As the devil a.k.a. Tim Curry said from the movie LEGEND (right before he was cast into a dark vortex/black hole by the good hero a.k.a. Tom Cruise), "There can be no light without the dark." I loved that movie as a kid, and that scene just captured me. Needless to say, it's true, so one must learn to accept the dark times as part of life. With all this swimming about in my mind, I created this illustration, "Noche Sagrada".
