"Difficult To Paint Today!"



"My Classroom Door"


Because of the horrific tragedy in Connecticut it is so difficult for me to paint!
I was an elementary and middle school teacher for thirty-five years.  "Sad" cannot even begin to describe  my painful and empty feelings.  My heart and my soul go out to the victims and their families.

  1. Incredibly sad. Stunned. Shocked. We had all the same emotions yesterday. And the worst part? A newscaster whose daughter was present in a like situation said it would happen again, for we lack mental health programs in our schools and screenings. His daughter survived.

  4. Michael, I couldn't agree more.
    Who, among us, does not know a beloved child of that tender age. So innocent, so pure....
    I'm lost for words......
