Daily Gratitude - A moment of silence

“A moment of silence”

For those special people who have made a difference in lives of many, we are truly grateful for you.

After all, it’s a beautiful life.

The backstory... By Holly Hale, Neighbor

Oct 6, 2012 3:35

On Wednesday, October 3rd, 2012 Master Sifu lost his final battle against the pernicious disease, cancer.

It is a rare experience in our lives to meet someone we can admire, trust, and love as a friend and teacher. Such a blessing entered my son's and my life when we met *Sifu. But, we are not the only family who has experienced such a blessing who are now feeling the pain of broken hearts, losing someone who excelled in every aspect of "friend and teacher."

Sifu was a long time student of Quan Yin Kung Fu and a scientist-engineer who worked on the Space Shuttle from its beginning. While many of us marveled as Endeavor was retiring, one of her creators was facing his end, as well. His son told me he was able to watch Endeavor's final flight and the family was also sharing the Mars landing with him.

“Memoirs of the Heart” is now available.

I hope you’ll join me this month, as I present “Reflecting on Life in 2020”, A glimpse of my artful journey, both visually and poetically, during the COVID-19.

Observe the color. Meet the subject. Feel the emotion. Embrace the gratitude. Experience the Art.

Let’s bring our world together creatively.
