Words~ 4/23/15

With such gentle touch does this flower open for a taste…
Soft silken petals wet from the morning mist….
Like waking from a warm dream
Embraced and cared for held safe and sound.
Such a feeling comes only from those who truly love us like the morning rain loves the sun or the leaves love the breeze. Oh to be touched deep within the heart without the fear of distrust or jealously.
Such lessons are the hardest after the mirror of innocence is broken. I search deep in my heart and soul to find the strength and love required to quiet these demon so I may stay to watch your flower grow…IMG_0742.JPG

In a muses heart

The pain written in a muses blood doth break the tender heart string of mine.
Given only hope that love large enough to heal the wounds that run so deep.
How I bleed for tortures of a muscle that ever beats then stops forever.
Know this poetess of my dreams desires.
No broken heart call could a true knight
ever lift his hand not to hold another above the flames of hurt and sorrow.
Rest knowing there is a light so strong that no darkness could ever consume.
For it is you…

The traveling painter…Goes to LA

Thanks for joining me, we’ve done a bit traveling together since we started this adventure you and I. Let’s see we went to the UK for 10 days and then spent 10 days in the Midwest on that commissioned piece. We’ve gotten new tattoos together not to mention done countless paintings over the past two years well year and a half. Here’s just a quick look at the past as we hurdle towards the future.

I just found out that I’ll be going back to the Midwest this coming march so that’s exciting and something to look forward to. I’ve been saving for the UK in April again this year but we shall see if I make it.
But on to the future heading to LA tomorrow morning to go see my youngest brother and his wife/family which is alway a treat. He’s a chef and his Mrs. Is a doctor so they lead pretty busy lives.
That is when there not popping back and forth to their homes in Japan. Sheesh, must be nice right? Well their amazing people and have done so much for my family over the years Arigato!! D and the Kangs now for a little iconic LA, which is funny because those who know me know I really don’t give a hoot about touristy things, though on my last trip I requested to drive by Hollywood and Vine and we did do some shopping and eating in Beverly Hills. Really when I travel I go for specific things usually none of which you can find on google. 😉

Anyhow it’s been super great seeing you today I think I’m going to try to rest up a bit today before my ride arrives this evening. I hope the day brings you great peace and happiness to you and yours.
Much love and light.
Benjamin.

PM~ music and Paint

I hope the day has treated you well today. It’s been a long one, here at the house, full of ups and downs. Oh the joys of progressive neurological diseases.
Life as well has a habit of throwing little land mines in our paths. Today was one of those funny little days, nothing that stopped my planet from spinning just slowed it down a bit.

I again bring these pieces up as to me the speak to perspective not horizon lines and vantage points but perspectives in life. How one chooses to look at something directly effects out lives. Today I chose to accept being wrong and humbled myself to that choice. I chose not to let my fatigue rule my life today, how? I moved slower I accepted that the many things I wanted to do were not going to happen and simply did what I could do. For those of you who know me a little better, know that me accepting my limitations today is a big step. I’m usually pretty bull headed. Not to say I won’t fight PD everyday with all my strength but maybe today I learned to fight with my head a bit better today.

I’m usually not a fan of my own pictures but I kinda like this one, I find it oddly
entertaining.

Until we meet again.

“Keep moving Forward

Something I was reminded of today by very fear friend is that dad wouldn’t want me to be stuck in my depression.
So for dad, my family and myself I’m going to believe its a beautiful day, count my blessings and “Keep moving Forward” for those who know me I’m a very passionate person, I’m also very focused if I want something I’ll get I’ll figure out a way to make it happen. So I guess I need to get off my ass and make it happen.

Much love to all of you and again thanks for the support.
