Some day I will pick up my brushes again and continue practicing to be the artist that I was born to be. I enjoy my freedom/independence as a single, mature CONSERVATIVE woman.
January 24, 2014: I had a meltdown last night after reading FR, and convinced myself that no one is doing anything to stop this, and too many still think everything is ok. It’s gone too far, I’m afraid, for any of us to handle. It will take a miracle, a “divine intervention”, if you will. I have never been religious, but I am now resorting to daily prayer. God, please rescue and save our country from these enemies within. Amen.

February 4, 2015: FRequent posts on FR now concern Obama's refusal to recognize ISIS and ME terrorists as ISLAM or Muslim. I'm seeing more articles from reputable sources that question Obama's tactics, attitudes, and his so-called Christian faith. More people seem to be waking up to the fact the he is Muslim, therefore his reticence to act or speak appropriately against the terrorist acts. Jordanian pilot was burned alive yesterday, and terrorists produced video, all over the web. Obama: practically "crickets". This year and next - God only knows what's in store for us.
