I guess I never truly stopped caring about this blog enough to abandon it completely. More importantly, I think that a few of my positive intentions echoed into the ether long enough to attract a comment that took me by complete surprise today…
Terri Rose…Thank you so much for stopping by and commenting at my site. I apologise for not responding to your comment a little sooner. I wrote a tiny tribute to your son Dylan Kuehl a while back after a friend gifted me with one of his artcards. Your son is a visual artist, owner of his own artistic business, a Special Olympics Gold Medalist, dancer, musician and a performing artist too?! Wow, I am truly impressed with Dylan’s Luminous Soul.
Dylan, I hope you don’t mind, but I’ve linked to your incredible site – DK Arts. You are an amazing Soul with a tremendous vision, and you remind me of what it means to be human, creative, Soulful and courageous. You are an incredible person and you are loved and appreciated! Your art is absolutely amazing…the colours, feeling and expression in your work inspire me (I am also a painter). So, thank you…for being You…and for expressing yourself as an artist and a Luminous, Bright Soul.
In the words of Dylan…on his art and his vision:
“I am able to express myself with art. I get focused and detailed. When I do my art I feel emotional and passionate and dedicated. My art work builds confidence and it builds character. Down syndrome doesn’t affect my art work. I just show my expressions of being that unique.”
– Dylan Kuehl
Oh, and if this young man isn’t busy enough…He is going to be appearing on PBS Channel 12 on May 14, 2008 in a series called Biz Kids. The episode, entitled “Choosing a Career” will be about finding the passion that drives and sustains your life. As Dylan might put it…”Reach for your Dreams and Celebrate Abilities!”
Please see his advertisement pdf here!
Also, please take a few minutes out of your busy day and visit Dylan’s site – DK Arts. Fill your eyes with Dylan’s beautiful vision of the world and remind yourself that we are all capable of bringing our Passion and Creative Beauty into this world.
Thank you Dylan, and thank you Terri. You made me a very happy person today!
