Seven years ago I was featured in an article entitled Magic Hands
that was published in the November 2001 issue of Heart and Soul Magazine
. I co-wrote the article with Juvita Layne Abrams. It discussed how I became an artist and the source of inspiration for my artwork. When the article hit the newsstands several weeks after September 11th, my sistalove/legal counsel Lauren (http://www.taxconcepts.net
/) and I decided to visit New York City to honor the spirits of those impacted by the terrorist attacks and celebrate the publication of the article. It was a bittersweet trip that filled us with so many mixed emotions. After visiting the offices of Heart and Soul
to pick up copies of the article and witnessing the staff move through their day with creative energy, I realized how powerful and strong the human spirit is. We are so much more than what we think we are!
