I am small town, with a large imagination, filled with gratitude for all the beauty that life has landed in my lap. I love people, their stories, their eyes, their hands, their wrinkles, and their imperfections. Profoundness is not mine, but I recognize it easily. I have just begun painting, and have been writing my entire life. I am grateful to my mother, who has shown me since infancy the beauty of words and all they can convey. I have a website in the early stages at venusdepavo.com, and a blog named "Rural Pontifications" - I would love any feedback or suggestions.
