Come Home

I long for your sweet serenades. Your claims that peal like bells from the tallest towers. Awaken me with your melodies. Fill the air with possession.

Winter was long and silent in your absence. The air had not the warmth of your sound, the world lacked the colour of your songs. The sun could not break through the clouds without your calls to guide it.

Come home now. Bring with you the blossoming flowers and green winds of life. Let spring smile upon our faces.


I started painting a couple weeks ago. Now I have all these ideas to go along with them.

  1. This is incredible! Capturing picture and words. I’m really inspired by both.
    (You just started painting a couple of weeks ago?! Do you have any recommendations for a beginner.)


    • Thank you so much!

      Yeah, I started around a month ago. I bought student grade supplies, and borrowed some books from the library to get started. I also watched some youtube tutorials. And lots and lots of practice. I’ve been painting every day for the past 3 weeks, sometimes hours at a time.
      Since I’m also a beginner, I’m afraid I don’t have much advice. I’m still learning, myself! But there are tons of tutorials out there that are a great help, since lessons are often very expensive. The rest, I’ve found, is a lot of experimenting.


  2. That’s awesome. You have a good eye. I took a couple of painting classes several years ago. It was a great experience for a hobby artist like myself. Keep at it.


  3. Loved your writing and your art (the ones I saw have a Chinese flavor – my 2nd home). Thanks for following my blog, that makes me happy, I loved yours and will follow too (my favorite so far)..


  4. I am intrigued by the art/calligraphy? on your site. Is it yours? Exquisite. Also, as to your home invasion–I have been broken into twice and know your sense of violation. One positive result in my case (70 rings stolen that were more or less a reflection of my entire life, including the only gift my father ever gave me and my mother’s wedding ring) was that I learned it made not one difference in my life. Lacking the rings, I still remembered them and learned a valuable lesson that stays with me to this day. If no one was hurt and no one dies–it is luck, not misfortune. The older I have become the more truth I see in this early insight. Thanks for visiting my blog. Hope to see you there again. –judy


    • Yup, the art is mine! I recently started painting. I haven’t posted much of my art, as I have been extremely busy, but I plan on including more in future posts!

      That’s very true. THe items themselves aren’t important, and sometimes it’s really hard for me to remember that. But I’m working on it. Thank you for your inspiring words!


  5. Hello there! I love this painting, absolutely love it. Do you perhaps sell prints or originals of your paintings? I would love to see this piece here centered on the wall in my home. The emotion it brings forth, and the words the image utters forth are beyond verbal expression. It is passionate works of art like this that births a smile on my face. Thank you for sharing, and please let me know if you can answer any of my questions.

    Much thanks,
    Tyler Jaworski


    • I’m so glad that you like it!

      I am planning on eventually opening an online shop, perhaps on Etsy, where I will sell prints. I haven’t made any yet, and at the moment have no originals to sell either, however when I do open the shop, I will be posting the link on this blog for sure. I hope to have it up sometime this year. And this painting will definitely become available as a print!

      Thank you so much for your interest! It’s really motivating to know that people are willing to purchase my art! I apologize for the wait – I have to research how to actually create art prints before I can open my shop!




    • Thank you so much! I’m so honoured by your words, and I’m so glad you enjoy what I write and paint! I’m enjoying going through your posts. I hope you like my future posts, and please feel free to comment! I love getting to know fellow bloggers!

      • I was wondering how you got your blog to be so successful? My content is not nearly as good as yours, but do you have any tips to grow as a writer? It is what I aspire to be.


      • I don’t consider myself particularly successful – I’m definitely still growing as a writer and have a lot to learn! But I think you’re also on the right path. I like the observations that you make in your posts. The little things and the big ones.

        Reading has helped me a lot too. Thomas King’s “The Truth About Stories” has been a huge influence on me. So has the article “The Sentence is a lonely place” ( I try to have fun with the language that I use.

        I’m not sure if that’s helpful or not. I’m definitely still learning, too! But I’m happy to help however I can!

      • I’m always happy to help in any way I can! That’s part of the reason I love blogging. Interacting with others in the community helps me and in return I get to help others! Please never hesitate to comment or ask questions whenever you want!
