I have been living in Albuquerque, N.M., for almost 20 years. I have been an artist/painter for 17 years now. It is my joy and purpose, and a compassionate gift from God and Jesus. I am a recovering alcoholic with 24 years of sobriety, a daily gift from Jesus. One of my authors is Fyodor Dostoyevski and St. John of the Cross. I give thanks to Thacher for all the great teachers and my fellow brothers and sisters, the students. I am grateful for all the teachers I have had in life, and I am grateful to be alive.
