Hi folks,

Thanks for all your messages of support these past couple of
days. It really has helped me alot.

It also makes me realize that I am not alone in my quest for
being a successful artist...

Hearing your comments inspires me to continue on with the path
I have chosen which is working on the Internet in support of artists
and the arts while giving myself the space and opportuunity to create
my own art...

I pretty much gave of on the corporate life when I left Sun 2.5 years
ago and just can't see myself returning to that type of existance
now even though it would bring monetary wealth. Working for the artists
here on makes me feel like I am really doing something that
matters (for myself and others). And it also keeps me in the field
I love which is art.

It's kindof strange how things seem to work out... and wonderful
in a way. Makes me realize what I value most in my life.

Thanks again for your thoughts. When those dark times come over me
again (and they do from time to time - guess thats part of being
human), I will recall your words and thoughts, reminding myself
that I do have an awesome path that I am traveling on and that
alone. :)
