Looks like the 1005 Faces Project I was part of is having a HUGE exhibition this Saturday at the Southwest School or Art and Craft:

My photo is finally up and out for all to see:

Should be a great exhibition, a year in the making.
Sarah Brooke Lyons was on the local CBS morning show discussing the project and exhibition:

Now NEXT Saturday is the Angry Oontz Oontz, and I will be selling art...                                                      BEHOLD:

Aaaand the quotes:

'Everything can be taken from us but one thing- the last of the human freedoms- to choose one's attitude in any given circumstance.'- Viktor Frankl*

'Many of life's failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.'- Thomas A. Edison 

'Wisdom begins in wonder.'- Socrates

'The creative artist is concerned, not with facades, but with the inner structure, with the truth of what he sees'.- Ellen Raskin

*Which was edited from this
The experiences of camp life show that a man does have a choice of action. There were enough examples, often of a heroic nature, which proved that apathy could be overcome, irritability suppressed. Man can preserve a vestige of spiritual freedom, of independence of mind, even in such terrible conditions of psychic and physical stress. We who lived in concentration camps can remember the men who walked through the huts comforting others, giving away their last piece of bread. They may have been few in number, but they offer sufficient proof that everything can be taken away from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms—to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one’s way. The way in which a man accepts his fate and all the suffering it entails, the way in which he takes up his cross, gives him ample opportunity—even in the most difficult circumstances—to add a deeper meaning to life.
