Summer's End

                 As the summer is officially coming to an end, I'm reminded of the promise I made back in June to get more work done and posted on this blog. As always, I make promises I can't keep. The simple fact is that as a double amputee, there are a myriad of complications and intervening circumstances that always seem to hold me back from attaining the goals I set for myself. However, I realize that I must "drive on" and continue to strive for achievement, less I become stagnant and morose. I'm happy to report to you that it's not all glum though. I've managed to salvage a couple paintings from my otherwise impotent summer of inactivity.
               The first, I've posted above and depicts two boys enjoying their day at the beach. Many of us can recall happy memories of idyllic summer days like this which adorn the halls of our minds-eye like magnificent paintings in a regal gallery. They construct a foundation of remembrances on which will help bear the weight of life experience .

  1. this is a wonderful post, Sergeant.
    I send my best to you and hope that you will remember that these goals and not broken promises and that you have more than just the usual obstacles we all face in life.
    God Bless you and I thank you for your service and sacrifice for my personal freedom. I never forget that freedom isn't free. Keep on painting ;)
