I need reminders.

I am forgetful.

It is one reason that I create art.

To solidify something in my brain.

Things that are true, noble, good, excellent, praiseworthy.

It's easy enough to remember the thing that cause me to grumble.

But there are things that I want to always remember.

Moments that matter.

With people that matter.

Creating memorials.

Of lessons learned and happy moments, miracle moments.

Surrounding myself with words and pictures and color

that reminds me

what I believe and how to live.
