Sometimes you feel sad. Not a gray cloud hopelessness sad that follows you everywhere you go. A sad more like beer foam. You know it will dissolve or you can blow it off at anytime. A sad that comes up from reviewing your life and seeing it from God’s point of view, the good times as well as the bad, and just feeling like you’ve gone through a lot. A sad that comes in a moment of feeling old. A sad that strikes fast and releases soft tears. A sad you get when you see sad in eyes of someone you love. A quick sad, one without answers. A sad that doesn’t require attention but rather total acceptance. A sad that feels like air or opening a jar. A sad with a tomorrow. This type of sad is more of a bright yellow and feels like a full moon when you stare at it alone. I haven’t felt it in a long time. I felt it tonight. I cried. It reminded me that I’m human.
There’s a difference between sad and sadness. Sometimes it’s okay to feel sad. I think it’s important that we allow ourselves to. And not judge it. Instead capture it like a firefly.
Then let it go.
Sad comes in different shades.
Some require action.

A sneak peek of my new project for SPX(small press expo)! It’s about collectors.
”Leger: Modern Art and the Metropolis" is officially open. This stunning multimedia installation will shed new light on the vitally experimental decade of the 1920’s in Paris.
This bold painting by Fernand Léger is the centerpiece of our newest exhibition “Léger: Modern Art and the Metropolis." Almost ten feet wide and eight feet tall, this monumental work captures the kinetic energy and sensory assault of modern city life.
