I’ve been an artist for as long as I can remember. Painting, leather work, Sculpting, Metal work and anything I can lay my hands on. It’s always been my passion and first love.
My Kids have called me crazy, a goof, geek and a half a dozen other things. I look at them with a smile and say well I guess I am all of those; I’m an artist, an eccentric.
Then I explain that life is not what society teaches us but the fantasies we live within our hearts. So what if I wear Steampunk clothing when I go places, I enjoy being different.
I know everyone has heard that life is to short so enjoy every moment. So true!!
When I was diagnosed with a few things and my doctor told me I would start having heart attacks within 7 years and I realized I got my bus ticket letting me know how I may go one day, I looked at life in a new way. I started to see all the beauty in everything around me even more so then before.
A good friend said to me how much time did they give you to live. I smiled and asked him, how much time do you have left, then laughed and said I may have a bus ticket but that doesn’t mean I’m not going to get hit by a truck tomorrow.
What it comes down to is we should all look at every moment, good or bad and take value in them. Be eccentric do things others say is crazy, but be true to ourselves and be who we want to be, not what were told to be. Then we find freedom and peace of mind.
So now I am out to Support my passion "Steampunk" and all the artists and people who take part in it.
