I’m not sure how this wisdom landed in my life , but it did , changing my breath and beat . It was titled ‘Sovereign Artist. The moment I turned toward “it”

The great smoking mirror rose up from the mounds of creativity in my palm, and off fouled grime and invisibility dropped from my glass ,my pearls .

these pieces written by so many are helping with spirited soulful patience. Clintavo you take us on your creative hero’s journey and hand us the fine gift from a stranger.

I return with that gift. Thank you

Ahhh, Clint, this is such a sweet tribute to your brother-in-law. I am sorry to hear of this loss for you and your sister and your entire family. Fifty-one is so young to move on to the next life. I definitely totally concur with all that you write in this post, and blessings to you and your family in this Christmas season. I fear that it will be rather tough for all of you, and my heart goes out to you, please know that.

Clint, I'm so very sorry for your loss. Thank you for sharing with the wider community. Beautiful tribute to Danny, who seemed to be more of a 'brother' than an in-law. Your definition of art is spot-on, especially for those of us for whom art is oxygen. Blessings upon you, your sister, and family as you grieve his loss, celebrate his life, and honor him by emulating his best attributes. God bless you all.--Kathy

"He pursued beauty in a world that eschews the beautiful and is obsessed with only the rational." He sounds like my kind of person. I'd moved too far into the rational in my 30s and 40s and am now trying to work my way back to be more creative. A few months ago I'd listed Beauty as one of my key values to latch onto. We need more people like him.

This is beautiful. I adore Danny and every memory of him I have. I cannot think of a conversation with him that I regret and our last conversation leaves me smiling. He was one in a million. Not one of a million. I'm honored to have known him.

So beautiful Clint, and so necessary. Thank you for putting words to both the subtle ache and the moments of fulfillment, "Soul Power" is a gift

What a beautiful writing. As I wonder about even doing more art, this was very meaningful to me. What a talent you have in being able to articulate such a complex but wholly natural truth. Your bringing this to light for us with such clarity builds the value of art. The transmission of your thoughts here allows and encourages "art energy" to move us more freely with our increased recognition of its value. Thank you for writing and making art energy more understandable.
