    Very cool! I love it! The dynamic stylized design and the swirls in the sky are amazing. Your portrayal of loss and grief is on target too!

    Oh my goodness Helena that is so beautiful. If I may interpret? it looks like an apparition on the the left approaching an female embryo. The whale appears as the protector standing guard. The ocean mixed with the clouds moon and stars creates a vast openness. Your art is a reflection of your inner beauty. Gary

    writing, philosophy, and art & music
    appreciation. Lou

    Helena, So beautiful! Thank you for sharing your talent with us. I see busy murky waters. In other words a lot going on in thoughts and mind. But also serene moon and the whale protecting as Gary mentioned. Both offering hope. In the mean time, curled up in the fetal position for security. I love all your drawings. This one hit home.

    Good morning and afternoon Warriors. How are you doing today, Thursday? Not much to say, but lot's of postings to read, some good, bad and the ugly (Mr. Grief). Just thought that up, in fact I think it was a movie.

    Karen, yes it was a movie, with famous music
    theme. Starred Clint Eastwood. Perfect!
    Thanks for asking us how we are. Hope
    your drought isn't too bad. We're finally
    blessed with springlike temps, approaching 60. The Neck, a boardwalk of shops, art
    galleries, & restaurants are lively, with
    smiling small business owners ( no masks)
    & tourists. It's great to laugh with friends, and to meet daytripper tourists.
    "Hope springs eternal" in May, as a recentCenter for Loss quote said. As I told Gary
    months ago, I may be open to meeting a
    woman ( after 3 & a half years), but she
    would have to be a visitor from out of
    town, bc my town is "slim pickins"--- too
    old, or too young. I just want a companion
    with whom to share a laugh , a walk, a
    meal, and yes, a hug. Lou

    Well, I guess you better get your special dudz on (a George spelling) and strut around Boston, maybe get a hang out place twice a month to meet locals. There is something special about companionship. Did I ever mention a family member who has been widowed for 16 years and is now 83 just met a man on her walks in the neighborhood and is dating. There is hope.
    But, then again you may meet someone from out of town in the summer at your Cheer's place.

    Thanks, Karen, but I used to live in the
    city,but you couldn't pay me to go there
    now, with the noise & rising crime. I have
    a friend, also 83,but looks 10 years younger. His wife ,of many years, died a
    couple yrs ago. He's been going to
    restaurants & concerts with a widow, &
    they really like each other. I'm so
    happy for them.They met me at our
    local cafe on a recent Friday night,
    where there was a band, & dancing. I
    love going to that cafe (my CHEERS) for
    lunch. My married pal,my age,plays
    drums there. If I meet a woman, it will
    be either there, or on the Neck. I hang
    out with a friend's French bulldog, which is like a service dog for me. When
    I have my arm around him, some
    women think I'm his owner. They like
    to find out local places to go. The dog
    can be my " chick magnet"! Lou

    To continue the lady I mentioned who is now dating at age 83 she walks her dog and that's how she met the man. Dogs are a come on to meet someone.

    Hh
    Not original with me. I met the dog's
    owner, whose husband died a month
    before Linda. At first, we were very
    sad, but her quiet dog seemed to have a
    friendly grin, and women took photos of
    him. Lou

    Helena, like all TGW, I cry a little every
    day. But, to quote Joe Cocker and also,
    The Beatles: "I get by with the help of my
    friends......". (ESPECIALLY on GIC). Hope
    all of us have more laughter than tears
    today. Lou

    I know tears relieve our pain and music too!! I always feel better when I talk to my family friends and share our feelings... It's so important to know each other even if is only writing how we feel. So many times I have said if I didn't have all my friends here, I will be a basket case, I appreciate tremendously all the support that each of us give one to other. Always thank you much for being here, listening and supporting with your comforting words. Helena
