(I love her decorated canes and walkers!)
Fairies World features the art of Tom Cross on their "wizard's page".
Tom has this to say about his experience of lung cancer beginning with his diagnosis atat age 49- a diagnosis shocking to him as he had never been a smoker.
"Much has been learned through this experience about the human condition - the compassion of friends and strangers alike, the strength of will, the power of positive thinking and the camaraderie found in a common cause to overcome a formidable foe that afflicts so many, yet is so misunderstood."
Birthing the Crone Menopause & Aging through an Artist's Eyes
Wonder-filled paintings and artwork by artist Helen Redman who has this to say about her work: "Birthing the Crone is a live process, an ongoing creation and a dialogue with others. It has helped me to see that getting older can be a cause for celebration, learning and a renewed sense of creativity and community. All of the pieces in the Birthing the Crone section of the site are arranged sequentially and accompanied by my thoughts at the time of their creation."
This site is well worth a visit and then a bookmark for future visits!
