Go forth was something a friend said often. So choosing to go forward despite all the sad and fearful news following the good example of the Parisians who are determined to carry on with their lives as before.
So, I got a web cam! And a program that will enable me to produce them easily. Given these times I'm thinking of publishing a book with images of my heart paintings including a brief text, well as long a text as I feel inspired to write about each heart, and how and why I began the series.
In the digital version the hearts will be in color. Unfortunately I won't be able to afford color inside the paperback but I can place all the hearts on the cover in color as there is no additional expense for the cover in color.
While I'm cooking up that book I'll create a video for each heart to talk about each one and how they each came to be.
No coincidence I thought of doing this now. I began the heart paintings in 2000. And when 9/11 occurred I wanted to do something. I did pass out masks but felt the heart paintings would be good for people. So I created a little website with aol declaring "Love is Stronger!" I also created note cards and sold them at cost and think they may have uplifted the spirits of those who got them or just seeing the hearts on that simple web site. I don't believe self publishing existed back then!
So since people asked if I would make a book regarding The Power of the Heart, now I can.
For now, still working on creating the one volume of From Darkness. Would love to get the Power of the Heart book ready for Christmas but while it seems impossible now, we'll see. Miracles do happen! Love is stronger!
