Not All I Am About

June 9, 2014

Brittainy ~ Watercolour by Patrice.

My running is not all I am about
But it is what keeps me physically healthy, grounded and at peace
Without it, I will have no focus, no inner peace.

My writing is not all I am about
But from it, I feel whole, in touch with who I am spiritually
I feel a calm, a calm fulfillment.

My art is not all I am about
It’s what I need, what I feel called to do
A yearning, a desire, a challenge, an ecstasy
It is who I am. Who I desire to be.

But not all I am about.

It Started In My Head

April 11, 2014



Great Danes from Purina's Hall of Fame ~ Watercolour by Patrice

It started in my head
It grew in my heart
My pen let it out
That painting, that writing
That perfect piece of art.

It’s voice did cry
‘Bring me out to the world
Not living just in your head’
I heard those words from
That perfect piece of art.

Begged to be seen
Begged to be read
That idea, that writing
That perfect piece of art.

Now the world can see
What my pen brought out
That lived in my head
Grew in my heart
That painting, that writing
That perfect piece of art.

Meet Patrice

November 4, 2013

Here in my life I have a purpose.
As do we all.

Mine is to make art beautiful.
To fulfill me, make my soul glow. To love, cherish, embrace the intangible
and make it real, touchable, to caress, to feel in your heart.
A living art created within my mind and expressed by my hand.

This is my purpose in this, this life of mine.
