Way to early

The morning finds me again up before the birds and beast, left with only the thoughts in my soul, the aches in my bones and the passion in my heart. I find today lonely in a selfish kind of way for today I officially give away part of my soul. Today at 8:00 am pst I meet the woman from the girl scouts and give away a piece of me. She had to reschedule from last Wednesday. Selling or donating any piece of my art is always tricky for me as I pour so much of who I am into each piece. It’s not just paint and wood to me it literally is a part of me. I have a friend in Florence Italy who owns a small dance studio that has a very early piece of my work and when ever I talk to him no matter how much time has passed between visits he says “I don’t need to know how you are my friend, I carry you with me” which is so true. He does. Anyhow I ramble. To the world and those who read this, be well, have passion and compassion. For the gifts of life are those who you surround yourself with. No matter how brief every connection you make has the chance to last a life time. So love, cherish and thrive.
Sincerely.
Benjamin

  1. I was/am like this too. If I painted something or sketched a picture, it was almost painful to give away. I feel like they’re my children… I still to this day wonder if they’re okay or what ever happened to them.
